Sorry Berry, I should of said " I never did get to adding trac bars like Barry did or upgrading the steering stablizer like some of the others did." At least I was thinking of you.  Wink

Hi Denny and Barb,

Congrads on the new PC. Our first PC was a 2010 2350 also. I traded it in on a 2012 2552 for the extra sleeping room. My wife does not like tight places like the bed in the rear of the 2350 or when the sofa was extended into a bed, so the twin beds work better for her. I loved the ability to go anywhere in the smaller 2350, but as they say "a happy wife means a happy life". Our 2350 was sold to someone in Illinois and has since been traded in on a 2552 again. It is now somewhere in Cali. It is the one on the Ford E450 with the third captains chair. So who ever owned it or owns it now might jump in here. I replaced all four shocks with Bilstein HD shocks. The front where the newer silver ones while the rear was the older yellow ones. At first (about 5K miles) the ride was harsh then is smoothed out. I replaced the rear anti-sway bar with Roadmaster bar. To tell the truth, I could not tell that much difference in the handling, so I would not do that again.  I never did get to adding trac bars or upgrading the steering stablizer like Barry did.

I have yet to replace the shocks on the 2552. I am waiting to see if Koni comes out with the FSD for the Ford E-450 which I have heard is smoother riding than the Bilsteins, at least the class A guys think so. Also Bilstein has replaced the front shocks with the silver ones used on Emergence vehicles and may soon (I hope) replace the rear ones.

995  Main Forum / Polls / Do you attend rallies in a PC? on: May 27, 2012, 04:33:01 pm
Does anyone attend rallies that last 4 or 5 days in a PC? We had attended a couple of FMCA rallies when we had a class A but am not sure about doing it in a PC. Mostly concerned about the size of the holding tanks, fresh, gray and black being much smaller than we had in the class A.

There is a FMCA rally coming up in Aug. 2012 at the Indiana state fairgrounds, Indianapolis, In. I know that PC will have a booth there. Is anyone thinking about or planning to attend it?

Shut your mouth girl, we don't want to hear about stopping to drink. Now you are sounding like a doctor, taking all the fun of of life.

Way to go. I guess it is like eating potato chips, you just can't stop at one or two.  rolling on the floor

What is the difference between what you are getting and the 2950 being talked about in the tread "Phoenix ad"?

If you poop down a small hole like in the bottom of the toilet and let it just sit there it will get hard. Then if you do it again and again, it starts to build up into a cone shape. Once the cone reaches up to the bottom of the hole and plugs the hole you are in deep trouble. If you keep water in the bottom of the tank the poop will float around and out of the way of the next load. Some people put ice in the tank and drive around to break up any poop stuck to the bottom of the tank. When I worked at the RV dealer, the new tech in the shop always got the job of removing this cone when a customer showed up with a plugged toilet. He had to take a long pole to chip away at the cone while trying to get water on it to dissolve it. The cost to the customer was about $75 an hour and it could take two or three hours.  exactly!

Ron, since we always dump before heading home and keep water in the bottom of the bowl, we do not need to worry about gas build up. Does the 2007 PC have the clean out spray for the tanks like the current models?

while looking on different sites and reading different forums I have seen people saying that the more water you have in the black tank, the better it is to drain.
What I haven't seen though is how much water to have in there, I can't see having a 23-35 gal. cap. and having most of that with just water, how much do you guys use and what do you use to brake down the ...............well crap.
Boy this tread is sure jumping around to many different subjects. In regards to the amount of water in the black tank, everything I have read/heard is that it is best to be 3/4 full before dumping. When out for extended time I try to follow this rule, but for weekend trips I dump just before heading home. With the new flushout connections, I also flush both tanks. I always leave about a bowl full of water in the black tank. The one thing you do not want is the "dreaded cone" forming under the bowl in the black tank. The water moving around the bottom of the tank as I travel helps to insure a clean tank.

As for the chemicals, I use a good name brand "GREEN" chemical, no formaldehyde. Odorless is one of the top brands and it helps to control the oder also.

1002  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Coach step on: May 15, 2012, 03:20:18 pm
I did a search and didn't see anything on this.  Is there a way to manually extend the step from the coach?  Took the PC out for a drive just to check it out before a short trip this weekend, and when we returned, the step would no longer extend.  The light comes on, just no step movement.  It looks to me as if the step motor is between the retracted step and the under-chassis, so I can't get to it to check it out.

Any thoughts or do I need to take it in somewhere to let more professional eyes take a look at it?

TIA - George
You said the light comes on, therefore I would think that you have power to the step. Fuse probly not the problem. I suggest you call Phoenix before they close for the day.

OK I found the load charts on the Michelin web site and looked up what they say for my weight divided by 2 to get each tire. Based on that I should put 65 PSI in both front and rear. I then called Michelin and talked to them. They want each wheel weighted by it self because there could be a big difference between each side based on the layout of the motorhome. So they say to put what ever the door sticker says in each tire. My door sticker for both Ford and Phoenix says 75 front and 80 rear.
1005  Main Forum / General Discussion / 2552 weighted on: May 14, 2012, 09:45:10 am
Was on a four day trip this past weekend and on the way out I stopped at a truck stop that had a Cat scale. So I got the PC weighted. I had 3/4 tank of fresh water, and LPG, both black and gray tanks were empty, Myself at 240 lbs, my wife, she would say her weight but she is 5'7'' and just slightly over weight and our 120 lb German Shepherd dog in the motorhome while being weighted.

The results are:
              Door sticker       Cat scale      difference
Steer axle    5000                4640            360
Drive axle    9600                 8140          1460
Gross        14,500              12,780         1720

How I need to call Michelin and find out what PSI to set the tires at. My guess is what it says on the door sticker.
Just thought some of you might like to know.
