I was at the Hershey RV show this week and got to see the new 2552 model in person.  Kyle told me that the lack of spare tire has to do with weight ratios and that there is no spare at all for that model.

The new beds have a power switch that controls them.  You can order that for either side or both.  If you get it on one side, you get one larger bed (approx full size) and one twin, but you can walk through to the bathroom.

I met Kyle, Earl and Earl's wife and had nice chats will all of them.  They are such nice, down to earth people.

Added #34 Shallow Shelf In Bathroom Under Medicine Cabinet For Toothbrushes Toothpaste And More

The hooks are brass to match the rest of the interior.  The brushed stainless faucet will always mismatch everything else.  I had thought about painting it.

I really only wanted the two hooks to the right.  The left-most hook is using the hole leftover from the door knob from when the wood was a door.  Maybe my wife Irene will find a purpose for that left hook, like hooking her rings on during her shower and at night.

Hi Bill,

We have the same condition with our tow vehicle, a Jeep Liberty.  When we stop for the night while remaining all hooked up like at a Walmart for example, I have to unplug the umbilical cord as well.  If I don't, the battery in the Jeep powers up something in the PC that I can't recall now.  I seem to recall it is related to the back-up camera and the tow brake system, but not sure.  I'll have to make note of it the next time we tow.

If all the suggestions offered don't make a difference, drive to a site as close to the RV park office as you can and plug into that CATV.  It could be the CATV service to your specific camp site is bad.

Tom has it right.  You also have to program your remote to cable not air.

Good Luck

Hi Folks,

We've had a time with our Honda FIT's battery.  I added a 12V DC line from the Cruiser's battery through the umbilical cord to the FIT, then from the umbilical socket on the FIT to the battery, through a fuse.  The intent was to power the GPS and other accessories in the FIT from the Cruiser, while towing, leaving the FIT's battery relatively unloaded.

The current problem is that, when we arrive someplace for the night, unless we unplug the umbilical when, the FIT battery is dead in the morning.  Diane had the idea to disconnect the umbilical when we arrive.  This prevents the dead battery while sitting in camp.

What seems to happen is that, when we arrive, we turn off the Cruiser's engine, leaving the umbilical plugged in to both the FIT and the Cruiser.  Then somehow, the Cruiser sucks current from the FIT's battery through that extra 12V line we added to the umbilical.

Some company makes a battery charger that will trickle the toad's battery, powered by a  line to the Cruiser, just like we have.  But, I don't want to add equipment (and cost) to the towing rig if I can avoid it.  I think a diode, which will allow current to flow TO the FIT's battery, but not FROM it would work.

Has anybody had such a problem?  How did you solve it?

Tanks in Advance!
Bill

In the cabinet over the copilot seat is the tv antenna connection. There is a button that turns on the antenna power boost and a red light. When using cable, you want the power/light to be off, otherwise you get a fuzzy picture. It is best to leave it off when not using the antenna to save battery power.

We hve a power booster on the roof rather than the run up and hit the tree's arms... And that means there is a button we indeed have to turn off to let cable connection take charge. It seems to work. So far nothing special by any of the tv reception.. That is why I was hoping that the Sirius radio could be used but it is wired funny and that is not an option till we spend the day at Ford and make a financial input to get it all straightened out.
Hope you find the secret... May offer us all the key to better reception.  regards Patrici

I have a 2004 Phoenix cruiser model 2550 (no longer available)! It has a rear bath, kitchen with fixed dinette, and it is wonderful except..... There is a "bedroom" between the galley and the rear bath, but instead of the present twin bed arrangement, there is a queen size (kinda) electric sofa that converts to a bed in the slide out . The problems with this are: 1. The sofa fabric is old and tired and worn as a couch, and very uncomfortable as a bed. 2. When in the bed position, it is only 72" long, so husband doesn't fit well, lol. 3. Also, it folds out as 4 cushions, one of which is stapled to the slide out wall, making it impossible to use any kind of sheets.

So, wondered if anyone else has dealt with this issue? We bought a memory foam topper, but it must be rolled up and moved to "close" the bed when the slide comes in. Additionally had a minor hick-up when we lost battery power and could not hand-crank the slide in because the electric bed cannot be manually folded. I know this is a long post, but know that somewhere out there is a seasoned cruiser with an answer. We will probably remove the thing, ditch the small joke motor that SLOWLY folds the bed (fingers crossed) and start over. The good news is that There are no vents or ductwork or obstacles under this area! THANK YOU!
