Smart money says not to run the Fridge on 12VDC. Either AC or Propane, which won't kill the charging system/ignition of the engine on the road (which has happened to me more than once).

Probably so, jas. Probably so.

jas,
Try this with the in-dash monitor/GPS:
Take some thin cardboard and tape (Painter's tape) it to the dash just over and around the monitor. If that cuts the reflection and you can easily see the camera inputs or GPS, make another of black and insert it in the small space between the unit and dash cutout.
If you try that let me know if it works for you.

Mice can destroy the cabin air filter and enter through the ventilation ducting if you don't have the system set for 'Max AC', which closes the system to external air intake when the engine is shut down. And be careful with poison; the critters will eat it and crawl into confined interior spaces to die. Then you have the stink to deal with, which, let me tell you, is very difficult to get rid of.

Spend a little less and buy another backup camera tilted higher to see the rear traffic and a separate GPS for directions, etc. Too much in a single system invites everything going down in event of single system failure.
Personally, I like the rear vision monitors where the rear view mirror would normally be.

I've always used a pressure regulator and external filter upstream of the city water connection and recommend it for everyone.

I never had a problem with our 3 PC systems but I did with one of our boats. I replaced the switch and solenoid with a Marine battery isolator and problem solved....forever.

We sold our 2552 and are no longer doing the RV thing.
However, I must say after 30+ years, having high-line Diesel-Pushers and other units in addition to our most recent 3 PC models, I cannot speak more highly of any manufacturer than Kermit and his staff. They have made owning a PC the easiest and most enjoyable experience I/we have ever had.  ThumbsUp
When asked about what RV manufacturer I was most satisfied with, which is fairly often, I'll always tell them to look at Phoenix Cruiser first.
As far as I'm concerned, PC is the bench-mark to which others aspire.  obliged

I had the same problem but solved it with small bits of tissue before pushing the wooden plugs back in.

I'd bet good money it's the switch. The contacts are not sealed against the elements and corrode. Remove the switch, pry the little tabs back from the rear of the switch and remove the sliding part (phenolic bit with copper contacts), sand the contacts clean and reassemble. Voila, the switch will work properly again (until you have to do it again). How do I know this? After almost 30 years of having various motorhomes with the same crappy switches, you learn a few things.

I finally got fed up with this and replaced the switch with a simple toggle switch (use the same leads but remove the bolt so it doesn't smash the new switch the 1st time you close the door).


That in & out stuff ain't all it's cracked up to be. Embarrassed

I only have a FB account to keep up with the Cold War Submarine Veterans and Diesel Boats Forever groups. No interest in anything else because they generally lead to unwanted and bothersome junk.  pulling hair out

Our 2552 handled very well from the factory. Didn't do a thing to it because it didn't need a thing.

For what it's worth, before we towed a car, we'd simply disconnect the electric, water and cable and leave them at the campsite coiled on the ground. In all the time we did that there was never a problem and everything was exactly where and how we'd left it.
BTW, never, ever leave you unit without shutting off the water at the source. I've seen a number of people come back to their unit to be met with a very wet surprise.

We've towed our 2013 Ford Focus and have only gotten one chip on the hood.

I have the same unit as Ron and have used it 3 times. Twice on one of the rears and once on my TOAD. Admittedly, it takes a while but it will get to 75 PSI within 10 minutes. It does get a bit hot but has not let me down. Hint: If you go this way, DON'T use the cigarette lighter. It will blow the fuse and maybe melt the plug. I had to replace both the 1st time I used it on our 2010 2551.
