Drawers under the driver side bed? What happened to the Gray Water tank?

Both gray and black tanks are outside under the floor on all the Ford models. I don't know about the sprinter. Depending on the model, the drivers side tank is the black water or the gray water. It all comes down to where the toilet is. It must be over the black tank for a better drop when flushing.

I for one am not a fan of the new bed, but to each his own. The advantage of the twins is you can get into the bathroom without climbing over a bed. Those big pillows on the side would be in the house. I might slide the passengers side out so I could hang my feet over the end of the bed. My wife does not need to do that. The other down side is finding sheets that fit it when out and another set for when it is in. I would not want to make the bed when it is out.

Looking at the rear, it looks like the trunk might be wider than the current trunk. A big plus to me.

I wish they would come up with a new paint scheme that does not have all those swirls.

Nope, only the house batteries charge when plugged in. One of the things I wish Phoenix would change.

On the 2552 passengers side bed there are about a dozen screws that have to be removed in order to lift the bed board off. A cordless screw driver and about three mintes is all it takes to gain access. I have only needed to be under there once in the last five years in order to have a water pump replaced. I felt it was not worth the effort, time or money to rebuild the bed and add a hinge.  You have to add another brace to attach the hinge to, not a small task.

Don't worry about it until you need to, just have fun.

Soap, water and a brush on a long handle.

We had them on a class A. They did help a little with the heat but they made it so dark inside we did not use them very much. They also cut the view so much that I had to lean over to see outside. We have had five motorhomes sine that one and none of them got window shades.

Call onan. I lost a door once and the replacement cost me $100. You have to make sure the bottom of thr door is in the track before locking it in.

For our first time we were there we stayed at Eby's Pines campground.  Just down the road from the factory, kinda out in the country. There were only a few level sites. For the second second time we stayed at Shipshewana South. Most of the sites were level and very wide. It is very close to the Amish market and shopping. Lots of good places to eat. It took about 20 minutes to get to the factory but was well worth the drive. It allowed me to check out how the PC drove and handled. My wife listened for wind noise and any rattles that should not be there.

I would strongly suggest you camp where there are full hookups in order to check out all the features and functions of the new motorhome. Without full hookups, how will you know that the dump valves work? Open and close every door, drawer, roof vent, and all outside compartments. Turn on every light. Take an electric plug tester and plug it into every plug both while hooked up to shore power and when not hooked up, turn on the inverter and check the plugs in the wings, under the kitchen sink and the outside plug. If you get the jacks, make sure you put them down even if you don't need them. I drove three hours in a storm to Indianapolis before I camped and found out they forgot to put them on. I had to drive back the next day. Try the TV, DVD (take a DVD with you when you go to pick it up), the surround sound and if you get a satellite dish, that also. I know that is a lot to check out and may take more than one day. So I would suggest if you have the time to spend two nights at the campground. You can also tour the Amish stuff if you get done checking things out the first day.

Let us know how it goes and what you think of this life style. and most of all, have fun.

If both sides are the fuzzy part of the velcro then you have a defective set of curtains. Call the factory and tell them what you have. Yes I know you bought used and the PC is already out of warranty but they can help you get a new set or tell you how to fix the old set.

I try to keep the slide side lower than the other side. That way any water that does get on the top runs away from the body and not into it.

I also checked my ignition switch and one click counter clockwise is the acc position. The radio works on it. Remember to turn it off and not run down the engine battery. The white switch on the dash must be held in for several minutes in order to start a dead engine battery

Welcome to the PC world. I am sorry you are having problems right out the door.

What happens if you turn the ignition switch to run but not all the way to start? Will the Radio/GPS work then? I don't understand what the TV signal has to do with the GPS. Can you explain it to me?

Hair dryer or heat gun from underneath, or a knife and pry bar, or a wire saw (boy scout days) to cut the glue. Or wait for another very hot day, one coming next week.
