2552 here, not 2351 but mine is hardwired.  Came that way from the factory but does not seem to be a difficult project.  Mine is located under the drawer of my rear dinette which would be under the driver's side bed on a standard 2552.  It is installed just inside from the exterior shore power plug.

As Keelhauler notes, if retrofitting, it might be easier to wire it in just before the converter.  Both would work depending on where you have space and access.

You just disconnect wires going into the converter and hook the 3 wires from EMS to it and reconnect the wires that were going to the converter to the EMS input.
Run the phone wire to a convenient location where you can surface mount the read-out/override.
See if sketch helps.

That's terrific news!  Now I won't have to give something up to get a bed to fit my 78" frame into.  I'll still have to go kitty corner but that's no big deal.  Does that mean both beds will be 80" or are they just adding 6" to each bed?

Considering hardwiring the Progressive Industries surge protector/EMS in 2351.  Wondering about location and difficulty of retro fitting.  Many thanks.

Never been there but online info looks nice. My usual method for checking out campground is: allstays.com Here is the link to ALL Florida parks, zoom in to outside of bay near Tamps and you'll see the little "C" in a circle, hover over it and you'll see the park name, click for info and links https://www.allstays.com/Campgrounds/Florida-campground-map.htm. It looks like the bath houses are close and convenient, there is water and electric at every site and there might be only two dump stations, one near the entrance and the second near the causeway connecting the two islands/keys.

Next I usually choose the RVparkreviews to see what people say. Keep in mind people camp differently so when I see a negative review that says nothing close by, I'm happy if all I want is a quiet place to camp. I just make sure we have everything we need on board before we go. Note the cell service comments. If you are trying to keep in touch with the family group, this might be important to you. http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/florida/tierra-verde/fort-de-soto-campground. I also use Google maps to zoom in to the campground then change it to satellite view so I can see the tree cover, spacing between sites, etc. And last, I Googled "fort desoto campground pictures" and looked at images where I can see large, flat campsites, most with gorgeous water views.

You will have a long drive to anywhere but it looks like a beautiful place to stay. Enjoy!

Another ? About this. How difficult is it to keep the Corian sink clean? I thought it was easy to scrub out stains, but I know the one we have in our bathroom the entire sink has discolored some. It's over ten years old.
I know stainless cleans easy but also scratches.  Help
The white sink does get stains on it but it cleans easily with a pasty mix of baking soda and bleach. I do it periodically. Our stains are mostly coffee. We use small shallow TubTrugs as wash bins when we don't have full hookups (most of the time) so not a lot of water goes into the sink bowl and food bits settle and sometimes leave marks. John is a coffee addict so lots of coffee gets dumped in there but not rinsed out right away. Most stains wash off and the tough ones get the baking soda and bleach treatment. After that it looks like new. I am sensitive to chemicals so our cleaning agents are primarily baking soda, white vinegar and bleach (with windows open to vent bleach fumes). We use little windex wipes on the mirrors and windows, Liquid Gold wipes or lemon oil on the wood and Simple Green on the vinyl floor.

As an added item, I use the same baking soda/bleach method to clean that white plate in the microwave. We bought a round silicone mat that fits it so it isn't often an issue and we NEVER bake directly on it anymore like it recommends in the manual/cookbook. The silicone lifts off for cleaning and the plate stays white.

I don't think the sinks inside the Corian counter tops are Corian.  I believe they are some kind of plastic.  They will stain but add some bleach into a sink full of water gets ours looking like brand new effortlessly.  I add the bleach into the sinks and toilet, then drain them into the holding tanks as part of my fall disinfecting/deodorizing for winter storage in our garage.  I don't want any bad odors making their way upstairs.

I think in general quite easy to keep clean, but it can stain.  The bathroom counter in our house has a round 'dull' mark about 4" in diameter on it.  I think the previous owner had something on the counter there that marked the corian.  Or maybe a candle dish that got too hot.  Anyway, it is possible to stain corian, but not easy.  I would not be too concerned about stains if you want the corian.

Anyone familiar with or even been to Fort De Soto Campground, Pinellas County? Got reservations for first part of June, due to a family gathering thing and was wandering about the sites as far as being level, proximity to dump stations and just general info on the campground and the area from your point of view. Don't have a toad, but do want to tour the area in our 2100. Need ideas on local eateries, sights, tourist stuff, etc.
Thanks all
