 A big congratulations on your new 2552.

Having lived with two big dogs in a 2350 and now having a 2552 with one large 100 lb German Shepherd Dog, I think you will be happy with your choice. We had half a page of modifications to our 2552, like shelves in both shirt closets, no roof vent in the bedroom (the one in the bathroom was close enough to do the job), two fantastic fans (bathroom and living room) and jacks to level the PC when camped. What mods have you requested? You will see a lot of factory mods and a lot of owner mods on here. Pick and chose what you like and ask Stuart about them. One of the best things about Phoenix is their willingness to work with the customer to get just what the customer wants.

First check the wiring to the valve and the switch.  Make sure all the connections are tight and clean. The problem is most likely the electric valve, which is not really part of the sani-con, just needed to make everything work. Camping World sells a similar valve, but I would call the factory on Monday and talk to Carol, in order to get the right part. With PC it does not matter how old you motorhome is or even if you are or are not the original owner, they know what the right parts are and can help with finding out what really needs to be fixed. What a great company.

Don't forget that the weight of the dolly counts as part of how much you can tow.

I paid to have a toilet and plan on using it to the fullest. I guess to each his own.

I am still trying to figure out how Ron goes dry camping for two or three days and never poops in his PC. Is he doing the old army style of digging a hole and using it? thinking

We have had three motorhomes with slide outs since December 2002 and have NEVER had any problems with the slide. The extra room inside is well worth the extra weight of the side out. You will not even notice the extra weight. It seems that those that don't have a slide are the ones that like to complain about them while those that do always get them on their next motorhome. Stuart loves to sell the 2350 without the slide outs because he gets to sell them again and again. Ask him. My first PC, a 2010 2350 which had a slide out has already been sold twice in the last year because of the size and the bed, that I know about. Do a search on here for slide outs and see how few are reporting problems.

The 2350 gave us the ability to go just about anywhere and to park in most parking spaces if I could hang the back end over the edge of the grass. The bed was a real nightmare to make up. I slept on the bed while my wife would sleep on the sofa. She did not like putting the sofa out into the full bed because we had two large dogs back then and it took away a lot of room for them. In 2010 the PC had the air bed, which was not that good for sleeping on. Can you picture legs and arms hanging everywhere? Now PC has a better sofa that looking like it would be OK. We now have a 2012 2552 and love the extra room of the larger slide out and the twin beds. The beds are easy to make up as you just pull the mattress away from the wall and put the sheets on the backside. No more climbing on the bed to make it up. We originally looked at the 2551 when we bought the 2350 but felt the chair up front was needed for watching TV. It can be hard to watch the TV from the front of the sofa with out leaning forward all the time. When they came out with the 2552 with the chair and the added pantry, we where hooked again. It does require two parking spaces, front and back type but that has not been a problem for us yet. I made several suspenion changes to the 2350 (I had it built on the E450) to make it handle better but as of yet have not felt the need to make any to the longer wheel base of the 2552.

PC moved the valve from the outside to the inside because of the chance of it getting hit with something and broken off and/or kids playing around and opening it while you are not looking. That is what they told me.

In the end of August 2010 we drove to Red Lodge, spent the night and started up the Beartooth hwy only to find a sign saying the road was closed 12 miles ahead. Went to the visitors center and they said it snow last night and didn't know when the road would reopen. Told us how to get to Cody, Wy and then take the Chief Joseph hwy to Cooke City and on to Yellowstone.  It was a great ride with real nice roads. We camped in Gardiner, Mt for the labor day weekend. The next day we found out the Beartooth had reopened two hours later. We drove our Jeep up to the Top of the World store and back. Very pretty. Someday I hope to do the full Beartooth Hwy.

Based on your picture the valve is in the open position. Mine came from the factory that way also. One way to drain the tank is by that valve. another is to use the pump into a sink and drain the gray water tank when you are done. Be careful as the fresh water tank holds more water than the gray tank, so dump a couple of times. You should be able to lift one side of the mattress and open the hole without having to remake the bed each time.

The two valves under the sink are the low point drains for draining the cold water and the hot water lines in the fall. The fresh water tank in under the bed on the passengers side. The drain valve is on the aft end of the tank. The clear plastic hose is the suction hose for the RV anti-freeze. Hope this helps you.

Our smoke detector is a First Alert model # SA720 with a date of 2011 May 23. It has a test/silence button and a light on it. I don't remember how much I paid for it but I think it was under $25.

Push down on one side (I believe it is the right side) while pulling up on the other side and pulling out the drawer. I marked my drawer after finding which was up and which was down.

I went to Walmart and bought a Kitchen type smoke detector with the silence button. I removed the one PC installed behind the A/C and placed the new one up front in the ceiling in line with the DVD player. Every time my wife would cook on the stove the original one would go off and it did not have the silence button. Now she has to burn something to get it to go off and the button stops the alarm for a few minutes. LOL
 
The CO2 is build into the LP detector under the passenger side bed. CO2 can be mounted either on the ceiling or the near the floor. Smoke on the ceiling and LP near the floor. Stuart should have told you this.

This is a request from those who have experience with slides. Since, this is the first slide that we have had, we need guidance  about maintenance recommendations.
Do you use slide supports?
Never have and never had any problems with the slides.

How do you maintain the rubber seals?
I have used spray silicone on the rubber to help keep it flexible. It makes me feel like I am doing good if nothing else.

Do you add insulation to the underside?
No the walls, roof and floor already have insulation in them. The outer wall is the cut out from the PC wall.

How do you keep out bugs, mice or toads? 
Never been a problem.
