Interesting what I found out about this issue.  My initial concern was transporting a grandchild in our PC.  There is technically no 'back seat', like a car.  Our 'back seats' are a EuroLounger with no seat belt (and not solidly mounted to the rig), and our sofa which has seat belts but is not situated to accommodate a child seat facing the rear of the rig.

Anyway, I looked around for info regarding adding an on-off switch for the passenger side air bag and found out that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration needs to authorize it.  There is a brochure which must be read (DOT HS 808 629) and a form that needs to be filled out (DOT HS 603) certifying that I read the brochure.  They then send me an authorization letter that I can take to an authorized dealer or installer.  However, there is no guarantee that the dealer or installer would be willing to install it. [The form and brochure can be found on]

Life would be so much easier if I didn't like kids!   shrug

I suggest contacting Earl to clarify that sound deafening option. It may be something new so we can't weigh in or it could be something many of us have but it was called something different back in the day (remember when vehicles came with radios.... before they became sound systems?) If the option deals with that Ford engine noise then I'd also recommend it.

Never saw that option. We do not have thermopane windows either and out 2552 is very quiet fro outside noise.

Maybe it's sound insulation in the doghouse (Engine compartment) the engine is noisy when driving.

Wow, keelhauler.  If you were here, Id give you a big kiss; well at least firm handshake.  The switch was on (from trying to start the engine).  After turning it off, the compass/thermometer in the rearview mirror, the rearview camera, and the step, all starting working correctly!  I did give you a helpful vote.  Great.   ThumbsUp

Last week I had to replace the engine battery in my 2011 model 2551. It had been in storage for the winter and wouldn't crank. I had to jump start it to bring it the 10 miles to home. When I turned off the engine, I noticed the fuel gauge jumped to beyond full and the back up camera stayed on. The next morning, it just barely started so I took it to a local auto/truck service center where they tested the battery. It was too far gone to hold more than a 10% charge. Replaced it with a new Interstate 750cca battery and my fuel gauge and camera problems disappeared. Evidently, proper the functioning of certain gauges and options in the RV are affected by low battery output. Not sure but it seemed that way in my case.

Hello. We are new to this forum as we have just ordered our new PC 2910. We are downsizing from a 40 foot DP and can't wait to get to try out our new rig. On the option list I was sent was an option for "sound deadening". Is this worth the cost? We would love to hear from others that may have experience with this. I am sure we will have lots of other questions as we prepare for our new home on wheels. We are retired and spend around 4 months a year seeing our great country.

Thank you Mike. Yes there are thousands of motorhomes out here, at least during snow bird season.  Most are huge, many range from $400,000 and up.  We simply don't want a monster to travel in. Matter of fact I found some killer deals on used diesel pushers that were truly elegant but again, huge.

Welcome!  We hope you like yours as much as we like ours!  Joni and I (and our two little dogs) put 9500 miles on our 2552 last year and found it very comfortable, versatile and easy to manage.

Interesting that you are from Palm Springs (with so many RV's and motorhomes around) and settled on a relatively little-known PC.  Good luck and don't hesitate to post your questions, ideas, modifications, etc.!!

Hi, I'm Joseph and my better half and best friend is Maria. We live in Indio Ca (Palm Springs). I will be retiring next year and the search has been on to find a motor home to fit our needs. I've traveled most of the world for my work and in retirement want to spend some time exploring the country we Love.  We have done a lot of travel in the US on two wheels, now it's time for a few more.

In our search I started out looking for an older Dynamax or Born free. One day I spotted a PC on the road that caught my eye. After a little searching on multiple forums PC became a front runner. By the way, a few of you here should be getting rewards points from PC as you've really helped narrow my search.  Ron D. should have his picture on the wall at the factory   Grin.

This past week we placed a deposit on a 2011 PC2551 with 19,000 miles at a dealer in Montana. If it is everything they showed and briefed me on (I'm betting it is) I will be bringing it home next weekend.

The switch next to the steering wheel that allows you to charge your engine battery may still be on, it makes my step go in when it is on and door closed.
