Been there, done that. The rear end was really low and I was raising it when the rear wheels lifted off the ground and the motorhome rolled back about two feet. The jacks folded forward and when the wheels hit the ground the parking brake stopped it from rolling any more. No harm to the jacks. I retracted the jacks and everything was ok. Now I am a lot more carefull about how high the rear is being lifted. It did scare me at the time, but a good drink fixed that also.  Grin

Go ahead and lower the jacks. They are self lubricating, so you should lower and raise them a few times. Then you should be aok.

On the model page for the 2012 2350, the pictures show the Euro recliner chair. I think this is the new standard chair, replacing the old barrel chair. You might want to call Stuart on Monday and ask him to be sure.

Thanks Gradygal for the pictures, they help a lot. The best part is that earlier today we went to home depot and bought towel bars and tp holder. The towel bars are the same as in your picture. We got the 18" size. What size is yours.

Now we are trying to figure out the sheets from two different companys. Amanda sent us to and this forum sent us to We are looking for custom sheets to fit thses new beds. Can anyone help us here?

I have on order a new 2552 with the rear bathroom. We are trying to figure out where the best places are to place the towel bars and the toilet paper holder.  We ordered ours without the mirrors on the bathroom closet doors, so this might be a place for the towel bars. Where did you place yours?

Also wondering if anyone put and kind of shelf/night stand near the beds.

What other mods should I consider on our new PC that you found useful?

Hi Mary, we have the aero bed that cost $200 and it works fine. If you get the double thick, remember to check how thick it is when you fold it into the sofa. Is there room under the sofa for it or where will you store it?

We got just about all the options except Insulated glass and the satellite dish. We got the leather euro chair and sofa. My daddy always said if it is free or cheap, grab for it. Since Stuart was almost giving this motorhome away I when for everything. As for mods, mostly We just eliminated some thing, No mirrors on bathroom door, plan on putting towel bars there, No vent in the bedroom, move the fantastic fan to the bathroom and add one in the living room, shelves in the shirt closets, no roof rack and wood grain dash, didn't like to black dash.

Judi and George, I am a big fan of Bilstein HD shocks with a tire air pressure of 70 lbs. Ride is not as hard with the lower 70 lbs pressure but is still very well controlled. If Koni made the FSD for the E-450, I might try them but they don't at this time. So shortly after I get the new 2552, I will have Bilsteins put all the way around. It takes about 8000 miles for the Bilsteins to break in but after that they are the best IMO. I got the shocks from and had them put on the 2350 locally.

Yesterday we went to the RV show in Hershey, Pa. It was senior day, buy one ticket and get one free. I took my wife with me, nice of me huh. After walking around and seeing a lot of the new motorhomes, we stopped at the Phoenix booth to see the 2012 models and colors. I guess, at least I am going to blame it on, the new motorhome smell got to us and we could not control ourselves. We really like the new 2552 model. As much as we like out 2350, the 2552 kept calling our name. Since Stuart was almost "giving them away", we jumped in with both feet and ordered an new 2552 in full paint cafe. So now the long wait to get it begins. I sure hope we are doing to right thing, giving up mobility for inside space.

We did meet several other PC owners there and it was great to meet them. Hi again everyone.

Ron that is a nice looking vet you have there. Two questions about your picture. One did you paint the doors to match the vet or buy the vet to match the doors?. Two is what is that black wire looking thing on the side of your house?

David, I use the Rhino hose kit, which comes with end caps that seal the stink in the hose. I moved the bungee cords in the truck about two inches forward at the bottom. I can now lay the Rhino hose on the floor of the trunk. Works for me. I have not been able to find a good place to mount a hose holder under the motorhome like I did on my previous motorhomes.

I have gone back to using the old 3" hose as it seems faster and a whole lot quieter than that blankly blank pump. Besides I can leave the gray water valve open while taking showers and don't have to worry about filling the tank. The sani-con never seems to drain the gray correctly.
I know I will get a lot of heat about this but it is just my way.

Patience Tom....

That brings me to my next question Tom>  Why are retired people so impatient?? rolling on the floor


Because we have nothing better to do, except gripe about everything. ThumbsUp

I just got my Cabela's catalog and it is full of the QR codes. They are the latest hot thing.

Aimee, we are waiting to find out why you asked about the QR codes? Are you planning something?
