Firebird,
    Our 2350 (2010) had a dinette with no slide out and the dinette had seatbelts, if I recall correctly, on both sides.  Our 2552 with a slide and couch has seatbelts for the couch.
156  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Another question/Dinette on: January 02, 2011, 05:56:41 pm
Billy,
   Just a few thoughts on the dinette.  The table goes up and down very easily.  Lift the aisle end up, fold the table leg up and lift off the brackets on the wall.  Then lower the table to the support brackets on the edge of the seats.  We found the dinette was not very comfortable to sit and relax on as it is very upright seating and to sit with your back against the wall, not too comfortable with the window shade brackets behind you.  Also, one person has their back to the TV.  We also found the table makes a lot of noise when on the road from road vibrations and that is why we left it down and covered with the cushions while on the road.  We had the dinette in our 2350 and in our 2552 we opted for the couch.  We will get a pair of short table legs for the table, my wife will make a cushion for its top and we will use it as an ottoman.  That way we can sit together and relax.  Just my thoughts.

Ron,
   I checked all the obvious, gasket and enlarged the drain hole, but the water appears to be starting closer to the spare tire side.  Will let all know when I figure it out.

In the compartment where you store your electrical cord, has anyone found water in the compartment?  Twice I have found a lot of water and so far have not been able to locate a leak.  Rather difficult now as it appears to be when the snow melts and finds a way into the compartment. I have not taken the spare tire off to check, but that is my next area to look in.

I don't know for sure, but I believe traffic and other items are options you have to pay for through Tom Tom.  I was having problems trying to use this unit and went on the Eclipse web site and found some help.  This is probably why PC has stopped using these units.  They are not listed on the site for estimating the cost of  a new unit like they used to be.  Love my Garmins.

I went out to check my 2011 PC 2552 and found the fire and smoke detector mounted on the ceiling where it should be.  I also found my carbon monoxide and propane detector mounted in the bed area about a foot off the floor where it should be.  The carbon monoxide and propane detector are integrated in one unit and mine is white in color.

After dumping your holding tanks and your gate valves are closed, I add some anti-freeze to the grey water side through one of the sinks.  Then I open the grey tank dump valve and allow anti-freeze to flow to the Sani-con to prevent it freezing.  Then I close the valve and add anti-freeze to both the grey and black tanks through the toilet and a sink.  This, I find, allows me to use my Coach in the winter and still be able to dump. Our dump station here in N. Idaho is open all year.   Anyways, it works for me.

Billy,
    We have the first 2552 which was a 2551 that we needed an extra length to add a third automotive seat behind the passenger seat.  PC came up with the solution to add one foot to the length of the coach.  On our 2552 we have a slide with a sofa and between the sofa and refrig. is a slideout pantry, all part of the overall slideout.  Can not answer the confusion on the dinette and sofa situation.  A call to Stuart would easily clarify the situation.  On the other items, I would recommend the insul. glass, the mirror compass and outside temp., and the backup monitor.  As far as the Satellite Dish, I believe that would be a personal preference.  For us, most parks have cable TV and if not then it gives us more time to read or go for a walk.  Just my thoughts.

Checked with PC about the frame lengthening.  They do have to modify the frames, but it is done by an outside Ford authorized company.  To modify the frame in lengthening the wheelbase you would need to have a fixture to insure frame alignment.  Also, you would have to modify all your wiring harnesses, brake lines and drive line.

164  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2552 vs. 2350 Roadability on: December 12, 2010, 12:13:05 am
The wheelbase is a fixed Ford chassis. PC could not lengthen the wheelbase, but they can use a different Ford chassis with a longer wheelbase.  As you can see on the PC spec. sheet there are several available wheelbase lengths.  They can extend the chassis length by welding extensions on the frame.  I believe they have any extensions to the frame done by an outside source.  Did not see any equipment at the factory to do this type of work.  So, the wheelbase on the 2552 is probably the same as the 2551, but I would have to measure it be positive.

Bob A.,
     We paid PC to have a Ford rep. come to the PC Factory and program two remotes for our unit.  We also had it done on the 2350 we had.  It cost $250 including the remotes and is well worth it.
