In talking to Earl last week; I asked how sales were going. He told me that he had three new units built for the upcoming FMCA show in Indiana and had to hide them out behind the factory so customers wouldn't get mad at him for not being to sell them. Our 2552X is in the paint shop. Grin

My repair guy was up to the challenge. He cut out the old seal (except for about a foot at each end) and attached a new seal to the slide opening, inside the coach under the slide. Now when the slide is in, it seals against the seals on the outside. When it's out, it seals against the new seal and the seals that surround the slide. Only $600 too.

Try "sanding" the Corian with Bon Ami.  It works on our LG brand solid surface counter top for stains and a couple of raised areas caused by hot lids from the oven.  They say you can use really find sandpaper but we haven't needed that.

We just picked up our first PC 2552 and are learning the fixes we need to make.  Thank you for all the discussion. 

Can someone send a picture of the changes they've made to keep the hose from rubbing on the opening?

Thanks - Don and Belinda

My brother had the same thing with his Starflyte motor home.  The hold-down bolts became loose.  Once tightened up, the a/c unit quieted down to the normal amount of extremely loud noise.

It seems to me that tightening them could be a very easy thing to do.  As others mentioned, call Kermit.  He might be able to verbally walk you through the process so you don't breaking something along the way.

To isolate the problem does it  vibrate only when the compressor runs? If it still vibrates after the MH temp. reaches  set point and the compressor shuts off it could be the circulation fan motor or its blades. If the vibration happens only when the compressor runs. It could be the rubber vibration dampeners that are on the hold down bolts. but the worst case could be the springs that suspend the motor inside the can. If one loosens or breaks the motor tips enough to touch the sealed case and will transfer a bad and noisy vibration through the whole unit. If it is the latter the compressor will have to be replaced.

Used my new 2552 for the first time this weekend. After the AC   has run for about six hours it started to vibrate with a minor vibration.  By the end of the day the vibration was bad enough that you could feel it throughout the whole coach. It blows cold and does it's job other than the vibration. Anybody have any suggestions 

Definately call Kermit.  Probably loose hold down bolts.

That was a good article; thanks for sharing.  As more industry consolidation means more of the expected low quality that results from labor conditions nearly rivaling 19th century sweatshops, I wonder if manufacturers figure potential repeat business no longer matters because after the next economic downturn Baby Boomers will be so  decimated by 401K declines as to not buy another one anyway, and so few Generation X and Millennials will have the interest, leisure time, or money to buy?  Of the latter group it seems for every young family in an RV there are twenty others who'd rather fly to a resort if they didn't have crushing student loan debt and a job with little more security to take a vacation than an RV plant worker.  So, is today's RV boom the last one and corporations wisely think they'd best appease shareholders while they can, or is it just boardroom short-sighted myopia and stupidity?  Meanwhile, we can all subsidize this system with tax dollars to try and repair damaged worker bodies with Medicaid or, for those permanently damaged, Social Security Disability.  Would unionization help them?  That's an even more touchy subject but if like mine, the union heads would push to accept an offer worse than the initial offer, have their board vote the heads a $100,000 bonus each, declare "victory",  and leave me working two years longer than planned so no 4x4 Phoenix Cruiser or Provan Tiger in sight, yet.  Grrrrrr on multiple counts!
