I just came in from washing the front of my PC. I used a brush on an 8 foot pole. I used wash and wax. The bottom half of the top has the 3M plastic protector on it, so it does not need waxing. For the top half wash and wax will have to do.  Grin

When we had a 2350, we had the factory put two bath towel bars on the drivers side wall. Took the towels down while showering then put them back. Work for us.

We had the same problem while traveling in Florida.  Called Norcold.  They shipped a new door to the nearest repair shop.  The shop replaced the door, all at no cost to us.  Thumbs up to Norcold for customer service, but a thumbs down for design.

Ditto from me, two doors in two different motorhomes.

I have not had any problems with my tires but I don't have very many miles on them yet.
What is the date on your tires? The date can be found stamped on the side of the tire after the DOT "nn" "nn". The first "nn" is the week of the year and the second "nn" is the year.

I just ran out and looked at my chair. It has a  black plastic ring, like Bob said, on the floor that runs through six ball bearing clamps which are attached to a wood base ring. We have never seen any scratch marks on the floor from sliding the chair. But we have the older fake stone look floor, not the wood look. I would guess one could remove the plastic ring and clamps in a couple of minutes. Then get six wheels and install them into the wood ring. One would still have to tie down the chair for travel.

The switch in my 2012 2552 is in the bathroom on the wall by the wardrobe and back window.

Just under the helpful count it says "Mark helpful". Just click one time on that.

The problem we found here in Maryland was that the sun's heat is already inside the vehicle by the time the shades are trying to reflect it back outside. I have not seen this type of shade in years. It may work in a cooler area but not so well here. The outside shades that Amanda sold are black and they seem to keep the heat on the outside of our PC. Amanda sold them to me for $400. Ordering them direct might be cheaper. I have tried the white cover that Camping World sells and it did a nice job of keeping the heat out but it glowed a nice off white at night if there are any outside lights. I use the black shades.

Ron, any shade will work if you keep your car in the garage.

Hi Ron,

    I have seen clear/white plastic vinyl bumpers in Home Depot next to the felt ones. They seem like they would not be effected by the rain like felt might be. I have used them inside my PC to stop cabinet doors from hitting walls and the toilet, but have not used them outside yet.

If you can get to the Indiana dealer, do it. They are much more accustom to dealing with motorhomes than most of the dealer here in Maryland. I think the closes dealer that will work on motorhomes to where you live is in Frederick. The ford dealer in Mt. Airy worked on my 2350 and said they might be able to work on my 2552 but they have not seen it yet. Besides their parking lot is so packed with cars that it scars me to drive into the dealer lot. Not all Ford dealers will work on motorhomes, even our little PCs.

Camping World sells a lock that clamps around the outlet plug of the surge protector.  I thought about getting one because I had thoughts of someone stealing mine.  Then I realized the thief could simply cut the power cord or unplug the surge protector and take everything.  I decided to just relax and enjoy the campsite/area.

Why cut a good cord when all you have to do is unplug both ends?  Cry sad rolling on the floor LOL

The best story I have was down at Myrtle Beach where the coolers left out overnight seem to make their way down to the beach. The kids seem to think it is party time in the evenings and they need something to drink. The security goes to the beach the first thing in the morning and anyone missing a cooler goes to them to claim it. Kids will be kids.

A friend of mine had a fifth wheel with 30 amp service and I had a class A with 50 amp service. He bought a bigger fifth wheel with 50 amp service and I down sized to the PC with 30 amp. I had always kept the 50 amp protector in the electric compartment out of the weather and sight. I asked him to swap with me and he was more than happy to. After his first trip he showed me a 50 amp protector that was well weathered looking, all cracked and split at the seems. Our guess is that someone ran over their protector and saw his nice shiny one. A quick swap must have been in order. So I can understand Holly's concern about her new protector.

    Having owned both a 2350 and now the 2552, we agree with Sue about the storage and the bathroom. One thing that was a problem in our 2350, and I don't know if it is in all the 2350's, was that the toilet was higher than a normal toilet. It was so high that my wife (5'7") had problems sitting on it and touching the floor.

    We bought the 2350 over the 2551 because of the smaller size and the mobility it provided and the 2551 did not have a chair to sit in and watch the main TV. When Phoenix came out with the modified 2551 which they named 2552 we went with it. It gave me the euro chair and my wife got an pantry. The added foot in the living area was a bonus in making it feel much larger inside. When driving or parking it I can not tell the difference between the 2551 and the 2552. I guess to some people the foot does make a difference as Phoenix still makes and sells both models. By the way, the 2551 and 2552 are the best driving and riding models that Phoenix makes according to Kermit. After having driven both I have to agree with him as far as the 2350 and the 2552 go.

    After owning the 2552 for over a year I have final ordered the Bilstein HD shocks for it because I prefer the sports car like handling they provide. Fed-ex will deliver them this tomorrow and after I have them installed and a test drive I will report on them. I have not really felt that the HD shocks are required, it is just something I like doing, and it might help a little.
