Hi Bill,

    Have you been to Beacon Hill campground? It is a small campground on a very steep hill. We stopped going there as we got older and walking the dog up the hill got to be a real trying ordeal. With so many other nicer campgrounds in that area we just stopped going there. We now go to Flory's campground because of its location.

    The "Gast Classic Cars exhibit" closed several years ago and is now an Amish furniture store. The train museum and the toy train museum are still great places to go and riding on the Strasburg railroad is a lot of fun.

    We are thinking about going but right now we are thinking about our upcoming trip to Myrtle Beach starting this Friday. Will let you know what we decided.

Holly, I think the factory is now removing the bar if you request shelves. I bet one could ask for both as we did.

Do you think that safety step tape would help. I have see it in the auto stores in black and yellow strips. It just tapes to the step and makes it much easier for my dog to see our electric step.

We might be interested depending on where and when.  Smile

You might want to call Earl and ask him if any owners live near you that are willing to show their unit.

I bought my 2010 from the internet price and my 2012 from a show using the internet price. In both cases they used the NADA book for my trade in. This was before Earl came onboard, so you would have to call him to find out.
One nice thing about paying the internet price is you know you got a fair deal, without any the hassle.  ThumbsUp

I think your fingers were on the wrong numbers.  Your post refers to a 2550 and 2551.  I think you meant 2551 and 2552.


Thanks Sue you are correct. That is what I get for typing on my ipad with my pea brain.

It depends when in 2011 your unit was made. Phoenix started making the 2551 in the middle of 2011, so if it has the euro chair behind the passengers seat, it is a 2551, otherwise it is most likely a 2550. We saw the 2551 at the Hershey RV show in September 2011. The 2551 started as a model year 2012.

Hi Lakedog, welcome to our merry little band.

If it was me in your circumstances I would condsider the 2400 that is already built because the wheel base is 6 inches longer, better ride and handling, while the coach is only 2 inches longer than the 2350. I would have the factory remove the front euro chair and put the dogs bed there. I would leave the table and rear chair for working and eating at. I would ask them to make a drop down floor to cover the step. Hinged to the wall with a rope to pull it back up. Some type of latch to hold it up.

I know making up a bed every night can a sob, but the bed in the 2350 we had was a real SOB to make.

For a short while Phoenix used a fixture that had the two fluorescent tubes and a single dome light bulb in it. I bought seven of these from Carol and replaced the lights over the beds, in the bath room, under cabinets in the living room and one spare. I left the main ceiling lights the old two tube. Now if I want a lot of light I turn on the tubes and a night when I want just a little light the dome lights come on. I don't know if Carol still can get these fixtures or not. The new fixtures are slightly narrower and thinner but I was able to make them work. I Replaced the hotter than hell reading lights with LED bulbs I found on the internet. They are bight enough to read by but don't give off the heat. No more burnt fingers.

I just stuck them between a couple of things like the battery and the fender, any where away from heat.  One bag Under each hood and one in outside draw.

When we had mice under the hood of our cars, i read about a product called "Freah Cal". I found it at my local Ace hardware store. I put one bag under the hood of each car and the PC. No more mice. It has a stong but fresh smell that rodents don't like.

When one is as lazy as I am, this might be the solution otherwise use 2F's solution above.

Before you start replacing your batteries take a picture of the wiring. You can refer to this picture when rewiring to insure you have it correct. Wink

Remove the negative/ground wire first. Replace the that wire last. This will prevent sparking, which can be a bad thing.

About 8 mpg maybe a little more or a little less depending on conditions and you way of driving.
