677  Main Forum / General Discussion / How do you Boon dock? on: December 24, 2011, 09:23:30 am
I have always stayed in regular private campgrounds or state parks when camping. I have even stayed in a Walmart parking lot a few times. Traveling out west I have seen campers parked out in a field like they are camping but have never try it myself. So you guys and gals that do really boon dock, how do you find places to do it and what rules do you follow?  Do you get permission from the land owner before staying or do you just know that it is public land and it would be OK? What would be real helpful for me and I assume others that have not boon docked would be some sort of guide lines to follow.  What is your take on this subject?

Yes, a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.

I Plan on eating everything I see that looks good. After all on a holiday all food is non fatting and is good for you. That goes for drink also.

Welcome Vern and Kay,

Glad to have you with our merry little band of PC owners. Our current and second PC is the same as you have, the 2552. I guess you have already found out how well balanced this motorhome is and how well it handles and rides. We all seem to make some changes or additions to make it ours. Be sure to post your modifications for all to see.

I wish we could winter in sunny Florida but my DW still is working for a living.  Wink

Trudy, IMO before you go man handling your awning, take Sue's advise and go to their web site and call them. They list their phone number on the FAQ page as the last question. If you bend it to much or you break it you will not be able to get any help from the manufacture. They may advise you to try bending it or not. There may be an adjustment you can make to the arms to pull it into the box better.  A phone call can be done without having to move the motorhome, saving you time. This is just what I think you should do, but it is up to you.
682  Main Forum / General Discussion / LED replacement lights on: December 11, 2011, 09:29:20 am
  Help My new 2552 came with four reading lights, two over the sofa and one over each of the twin beds. The lights use a regular bulb, number 1139IF 12v 12w. After it is on for a few minutes, it gets very hot. I would like to replace it with an LED bulb or as a last resort an LED fixture. I have looked all over the internet including the Camping World site and can not find any reference to a 1139IF bulb. Camping World has one 4 inch fixture that looks like it might be replacement for what I have but they cost $50 each. shrug



Does anyone know where I might find a replacement LED bulb?


P.S. If you have this reading light, don't take the bulb out. I just spent 15 minutes in the cold trying to put it back in and could not. There is not enough room between the bulb and the housing to push the bulb in and turn it. I will have to try again another time. Be warned.

I don't see any hole. What is with the silver eject button on the bottom of the bed? Are you that hard to get up in the morning?

Nice job of hidding the hole.

Berry, very nice table. i was wondering if it would store behind the drivers sit and the slide when traveling? A friend gave us a small table and that is where we are storing it. Just have to remember to make sure the slide does not collect it when putting it out. These 2500 series ride so smooth that it has never even fallen over.

Hi Barry and Sue

    When we had ordered our new PC 2552 you sent me the list of your options also. My wife and I went over the list and chose what was right for us, a lot of your items we had already requested. The one item that sparked a lot of conversation between us was the bathroom sink cover. She said it would be a good thing to have but could live without it. I thought it would be more trouble than it was worth, having to remove it every time I wanted to use the sink. Kind of like how women insist on putting the toilet cover down, just so we have to lift it up all the time. Just another thing us men learn to live with. Also it would be one more thing to have to check before hitting the road. Anyway I did call the factory and asked if they could find one for us and that I already knew ours had been cut and long gone. When we picked up the rig at the factory we forgot all about it and never asked again. I am pretty sure if I persured it I could get one from the factory.
    My questions is; do you use it and how do you feel about it now that you have had it for awhile?

Ron does but I live in Howard County Maryland. I think we meet at the Hershey show last September. I was sitting in the 2552. Ended up ordering one that day.

We waited until we got down near Wheeling, WV at a campground before putting water into the fresh tank. Ran a few test to test the pump and then hooked up to city water. By morning the fresh water tank was empty. The factory had left the drain valve open on the tank. So I knew that worked also. LOL

The RV hall of fame is just about two miles from the factory if you want to visit it.

Mike, I would strongly recommend that you spend the first night after picking up your new baby at Eby's. I spent four years working at an RV dealer selling RV and helping to check them in when they arrived at the dealer from the manufacture. When I picked up my current PC, I spent two hours going over it checking every little thing. We did not put water in it because the water in Elkhart is so bad and full of iron. When we were ready to leave the weather had turned bad, heavy rain and even thunder storms, so we decided to head south out of the rain. We ended up driving through the worst storms Indiana had seen in years down to Indianapolis, some 170 miles. By the time we got to a campground it was dark and raining pretty hard. I parked in the site and reached down to put the jacks down. Oh boy, you should have hear me talking to my self, like a drunken sailor. NO JACKS. How could I have missed that? I called Stuart and left a message for him. In the morning I called Carol at the factory and she arranged to have jacks installed as soon as I could get back there, a three hour drive. It turns of that at least five people missed the jacks on the check off list and I missed it on delivery. Everyone was very sorry for the mistake and even paid for my gas and troubles. When we picked up our first PC, we did stay locally and only found one small thing wrong. A quick swing by the factory the next day had it fixed in five minutes.  I should have spend the first night near the factory like I have recommended in the past. I laugh at this now but it wasn't so funny then.

I would recommend that you try to pickup the new PC on Monday through Thursday and leave Friday for a return to get anything fixed. Most likely you will not need to return to the factory but it is better safe than sorry. I bet that Stuart will not like me staying this here but it is how I feel.

PS. if these post are helpful, please press the "mark helpful" button on the left under my name. I am trying to keep up with Ron D. on being helpful. Thank you
