The front half of a 2552 is identical to a 2350-E350 as we own.  Like gl1500, we have a 3rd captain seat in lieu of the euro chair.  Our first grand child is due in late June so when it comes time, we plan to do as Bob Mahon did and bolt a "D" ring like this to the floor under the seat, to use as a tether point for a child seat.

OH! I see gl1500's pictures show a "D" ring on the floor, next to the base plate of the pedestal, opposite the cab.

The sound deadening seems to be a spray on similar to an undercoating. The price is $40 per running foot.

Here are pictures of the first 2552 and the additional Captains Chair installation.  Worked great as an additional seat when only the two of us, also.  Put the back of the front chair down and sit in the add-on chair with a place to put your legs.  Also, nice when you want to sit and relax in complete shade.  Granddaughter loved the seat and she would watch videos while on the road.

Welcome to the Forum and congrats on your 2910.

We have a 2910 (it is our 3rd PC). As the others have stated, I have never heard of that option. It must be new. We do have thermopane windows. I find the rig quiet. Let us know when you find out what it is.

When we had our rig built, we added some upgrades. We had a beveled mirror installed behind the sink and on the wall to the left of the stove. One of the best things we did. Water splashes when doing the dishes and my concern was that it would sit on the wood paneling behind the sink and spot the wood. Not an issue now. I just wipe it with glass cleaner and we are good to go. It also has the added advantage of making the living space seem larger.

We put some photos of what we did on the Forum. You can search and find them. If you have any other questions, PM me.

Bruce and Sharon, thank you. Palm Desert is a beautiful area.  We live off of Jefferson and miles (Indian Springs Country club).
I'm happy to hear you have no regrets downsizing. Some of my friends are going the other route 30 foot to 40 and are not full timers just weekends here and there and a vacation period for 2 people. So hearing from someone who went the other route makes me feel better about not going large. This sounds like a impossibility but we're attempting to do it once and get it right the first time. All too many tell me it can't be done.  I guess only time will tell.

PURCHASE  AWAY FROM HOME  welcome,,   We purchased our PC2350 out of Seattle (we live in Houston)  I think you could get someone from the forum to go check out a vehicle in the area. I went and checked out a 2551 at our local Camping World for someone,, they sent me a $50 gift card from Starbucks,,,  covered my gas..  time was no problem was fun.     Both RV's I have purchased  were used... The first one I paid a local  RV shop to inspect I did not have enough experience....  There are some dealers who will pay you to fly in and purchase... you can really get some good deals on used,, I would love to buy a brand new unit but money rules haha

Mike, I hope you are able to resolve this. I was browsing the internet and saw the letter requirement but thought that might be old info. Is the data you are looking at current? I also saw a lot of trucks for sale with that switch in them so it hopefully isn't too difficult to get done.

For anyone unfamiliar, the 2552 was created as an extended 2551 to resolve this same problem. However, the original mod was to put a fully anchored, auto seat style captain's chair behind the passenger seat so a baby or young child could be properly fastened in. Since most people don't need that, the subsequent 2552s came with the movable Euro chair which we personally love. While I'm sure you can get the captain's chair if you order it during the factory build, I don't know if you can have it added later. That's a question for Earl. And to swap back the other way would leave multiple holes and marks in the flooring.

Ron Ditmer has pics on the forum of his captain's chair in his 2350 which has the same space in that area. It is fully functional and swivels and reclines. It just can't be moved around the coach like the euro chair can.

Welcome Joseph and Maria,
We're almost neighbors to you as we live about one-half year in Palm Desert Greens.  We recently "right-sized" to our 2552 from a 37' diesel pusher and have no regrets about that decision.  We love our PC.

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.
