  It is the tallest item on the roof which puts our clearance at about 11'-6". 

   - Mike

The specs on the 2552 and all the E450  based PCs states a height of 10'1"  including the A/C. You might want to double check your 11"6" statement, unless your have a dish that is 15" above your A/C.  Grin

1 A/C or 2? With one A/C you only need 30 amp service. Lighter electric cord when hooking up. With two A/Cs you need 50 amp service. Very heavy cord outside. Go to an RV store and pick up one of each in a 25 or 30 foot length.

In the 2552 with one A/C if you close the folding door, you block the A/C from the rear of the coach. If you have guest sleeping up front or one of you wants to go to bed while the other stays up and you want to close off the bedroom, no A/C in the bedroom or bathroom. With two A/Cs and 50 amp service you can run both of them and cool/heat both areas.

I don't know how color panels play into all this.

30 or 50 amp system? What is the amps of the 13500 vs 15000 ac? What about heat strip vs heat pump?
I know my dw like to pop the 30 amp breaker with ac and heat strip running. She will start the coffee maker or microwave or a hair dryer and pop goes the weasal.

We are trying to make some final decisions before ordering our PC. Several have posted how much they like the Magneshades .  Where are the magnets attached to the side windows so there is no interference when the windows are rolled up and down

The side shades have magnets in the shade that attach to the outside metal door frame. You can roll the windows up and down. They are one of the better options to get.

I like the two different colors between the sofa and the chairs. I looks like you got carpet also. All in all a very homely feel about it all. ThumbsUp

Nice list with every thing one could possibly want.
I was wondering where you live and where you plan on going camping. What with the insulated windows, and upgraded AC. You might want to update your profile to include where you live.

My 5 year old full paint PC still looks like new. It has never been indoors since leaving the factory and during oil changes at Jiffy Lube.

If the diamond shield has changed color to a light brown I can't tell because my full paint in those areas is light brown.

We had double pane windows in our Winnebago before getting the PC. Several of the windows were fogging up when we traded it in. So we did not get double pane in either of our two PCs. We find the white MCD shade will keep some, a lot of the cold out when pulled all the way down. I don't know if I would get double pane windows in our next motorhome, if there is a next motorhome. We don't do any winter camping after Thanksgiving.

We tow a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Like Mike, Our auxiliary braking system is the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo, with the remote radio baking lights/signal in the PC cab. We use the Blue Ox tow bar system also. Last month on the way to Myrtle Beach, SC I bent my 13 year old tow bar and ended up replacing it with the new Blue Ox Aventa tow bar which is 2 inches longer. It works even better than the old bar when turning.

Some people have had a problem towing the Cherokee. It goes into a bad shaking until you stop.  Jeep has a fix for this, but we have not as of yet so have not had the fix done. I have towed it from Maryland to South Dakota and down to Myrtle beach at the maximum highway posted speed limit, (read up to 80 MPH). We have found that the older Liberty and the Cherokee are better if you want to take another couple with you, say like out shopping or to dinner than the Wrangler. My buddy has one and every time we go out I get to drive.

I use WD40 heavy dute water proof silicone spray. It does not atract dirt like regular WD40. In the past I would use regular WD40 then wash the them every spring and re-spray. I still wash every spring but I find less dirt now.

Ron have you sprayed the rod with silcone spray? I had to repair my black water tank valve because the gear wheel broke in half. The biggest problem I had was that there is no, l mean NO, slack in the electric wires. I ended up splicing in about 6" of wire in order to have something to work with. You might be able to remove the whole motor and valve in one piece with out having to disconnect the wires. Good luck and let us know how it goes for you.

Welcome to both our new Texans.

Sandy the pump is mounted to the fame underneath on the drivers side. It is a real pain to get to it in order to check the fluid level. You will need a mirror as the hole is on top of the box. You will see led lights on the front of the box. What is your problem? Have you cleaned and sprayed the jacks and springs?

I do what is said above plus I add Sta bil to the gas tank. Then I fill the gas tank, drive around to mix it up. Then I run the generator for 15 to 30 miniutes to get the mixed gas into it.

Barry/Sue, congrads on becoming the third PCPC. 1000 post.  Cheers

I don't know about you guys, but I get a lot of dead bugs on my wings when traveling. I don't need to look out a window covered in dead bugs. I would think a small rock throw up might bounce off a thick window shield or maybe put a hole in it would break the thinner side window in a wing.
Just my thoughts.

My Euro chair is started to flake also. I haven't decided when and what I will do about it yet.
Maybe we can get the FEDS to issue a recall on this ultra leather.  rolling on the floor
