Marilyn, remember that if you have a problem on the roof in a campground, there will be someone around that would be willing to climb up your ladder to help you out if you give a big smile. On ladder means no help. One time I was driving to Myrtle Beach for the Christmas break and to get away from the snow and ice around here. I was on a two lane road with a car coming at me when I spotted at pine tree branch hanging low over my lane because it was full of ice. Well we hit it and it with a loud bang. When I was able to pull over, several miles later, I inched up my ladder and looked around. I too dislike heights and only get on my roof when really needed. I found that the branch had knocked off the cover of the satellite dish, leaving the rest of the dish exposed. When I got to the campground, I was able to tape a plastic bag over the dish until I could get a replacement cover shipped in.

When you go to pick up your new baby, besides the check, you will need to bring with you a couple of things. The first being towel bars and a toilet paper holder. They will mount these where ever you want them. You will see a lot of options on here as to where folks have mounted theirs. On our 2350 we had the towel bars mounted in the shower and the toilet paper holder across from the toilet. On the 2552 we had the towel bars mounted to the back of the sliding door. I mounted a Bears head toilet paper holder on the back of the wardrobe door using command hook and loop tape. In the heat this year the tape came unglued and the bears head fell and broke. I then mounted a holder that matched the towel bars on the back of the sliding door. If you have them mount one towel bar near the top of the door and the other below where the top towel will end, as far left on the door as possible, there will be room for the toilet paper holder on the far right side about three feet up from the floor. I sit down on the toilet and close the door and the paper is now right in front of me. This spot is working for us.

Another thing you might want to bring is vent covers for you Fantastic fans. When we are not running the A/C, we like to leave the vents open with the fan on whenever we leave the dog in the camper. With the cover we don't have to worry about rain. Also during the summer I always leave the vent cracked open to allow some of the heat out. Fantastic has just come out with a cover that allows the Maxim amount of air flow, even better than the Maxxair II that I have. You can go to the Fantastic site and see a Utube of how well their cover works compared to the other ones. Again Phoenix Doug will install them for free.

I am sure there are other things that I am forgetting right now, so when I remember them I will post them. I am sure that others will post there delivery experiences.

Those sound like some cool mods. We got the ladder but not the roof rack. One never knows when you might need to get on the roof to clean it or remove tree branches.

One other thing we have found has to do with the overhead lights. The new switch by the door turns on the light by the kitchen and we would have preferred it turn on the light by the door. We also wish they have taken one of the two bedroom overhead lights and put it up front near the front cabinets. Those cabinets can be kind of dark inside at night. I really don't need four lights and two reading lights in the bedroom.

Are you going to get the front shades from Amanda? They are kind of expensive but work really well at keeping people from seeing in during the day, keeping the sun/heat out and at night keeping the outside light from lighting up the front curtains.

Might I suggest that you go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and get the 3" memory form matters pad. You might want to put a blanket or two under the form, which you could store in the sofa in place of the air bed. You would have to roll up the form and put it behind the sofa for storage. Forget the air bed, none of them seem to hold air very long.

The sofa has two seat belts = 3th & 4th passenger can be belted.
816  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Euro Chair Questions on: August 15, 2012, 05:06:54 pm
No seat belt. I use a small dog collar in place of the clamp. I put the screw through the d ring and snap the collar around the base. I got this trick on here.
817  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Euro Chair Questions on: August 15, 2012, 03:47:14 pm
Yes it is clamped to the floor. The clamp is in the back and clamps over the base of the chair. The clamp is more than strong enough to hold the chair. The screw goes into the frame of the floor. It can be easily removed to move the chair where you want it. Phoenix normal way of building things, over built.

The ""SERVICE ENGINE SOON" indicator light." will come on if the gas cap is not screwed down all the way. When the driver filled the tank before delivery, he/she might not of gotten it tight. Most manuals will tell you to tighten the cap and drive it. The light will go out after three to five restarts of the engine. The system checks are done when restarting. If the light does not reset, then take it in for service. No need to drive a hundred miles for that.

Aimee, I live in Western Howard county, Maryland. That is just about in the middle of the state. Thank you for putting me on the list. How do you plan on contacting us when someone wants to see our PC?

Aimee,
    Sorry, I did not mean to cause a problem about the incentive program. I was told about it when we got our first PC and I thought everyone was told about it. I was just trying to remind you about it. I guess I could have worded it better.

Ron,
    I hope you get a reward from Phoenix. Be it money or something else. I like the idea of allowing the owner the choice of something else or money. I think a lot of folks would opt for the windshield shades if given the option. The owner gets what they want and Phoenix saves some money, a win/win.

There is already a map in the Phoenix HQ with pins for where the owner live. There is already a $500 reward for referring someone to Phoenix when they buy a unit. At least there was when we bought our PC. You might want to call Stuart about this whole thing. 

I showed our PC to SA Johnson when he was looking and asking a lot of question on here. All of a sudden he disappeared from this forum. I don't know what he ended up doing. I even sent him a private message and never heard from him.   

I would still be willing to show my PC again.

OK Bob are you taking into account the what is playing. I would be sure my mileage goes way down when I listen to 50's music over a talk radio station. Now hill billy music makes me drive really fast, just trying to get away from it. rolling on the floor
823  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Errors in speedometer and trip meter on: August 07, 2012, 12:30:32 pm
Is that with or without the radio on?

 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.
