Ouch! If that "smaller wife" doesn't get you sent to sleep on the couch, then you need to thank her for being a saint.

FYI - being a little slow at times, I just realized I responded with a comment but didn't cast my "vote" on the poll until just now. Sorry. I know the poll was set up to get a nice, quick view count/percentage tracked by the computer. My error has been rectified.

I would unscrew the hour meter panel from the wall and check the connections.  Make sure all connections are good & tight.  I've never had ours out so I don't know how the connection is made.  If it's a snap-on but very loose, gently crimp it with a pliers so there is good resistance getting it back on.

Do it with all power off and the chassis battery disconnected because the starter might get it's power from there.  Work with a flashlight if you have to.  When disconnecting the chassis battery, just disconnect the ground, not the power.  Leave the red connection on and undisturbed.  It is so much safer and reliable doing it that way.

Picked up the new 2552X on August 2nd. Spent the night at KOA checking things out. About the same as out 2016 2351. Then down to southern Ill. Beautiful weather and no chance to check for leaks. Early Sunday morning we headed back to PA in a light rain. Rained across southern Indiana and Ohio. Spent the night in S. Ohio in the rain. No water; no leaks. Cool Cheer In walking around unit at home, something is missing. No skid rollers. Called Earl. Oops. They are coming via UPS. All is well.

We traveled over 3 mos. in 2015, almost 5 mos. last year, and could be 6 mos. this year especially if this heat wave continues, enjoying the cool Oregon coast.  Thinking I could use a larger motorhome or a smaller wife.

Right.  I think the current GVWR of the Transit is a real limitation.  Current makers are talking about an OCC of anywhere from 900-1200 pounds...and that may be a stretch.  We love the Sprinters to drive.  Its the only RV that my wife feels comfortable in driving.  We did test drive a Fuse Transit last April and it handled very well. Noted differences were the cab is much lower to the road, car like, and very little wind effect.  Also it had a little bit more get up and go then the Sprinters.

I think the "quirks" are not related to breakdowns.  I assume that the early years issues with the Sprinter relating to "limp home mode" and DEF issues have long been solved.  The $10K price difference, lack of MB dealers, and cost of maintenance, seems to be sticking points with some folks.  A delivery fleet owner stated that the long term maintenance costs for the Sprinter was .10 a mile and .02 a mile for the Transit??   Will be interesting to see what Ford does in the future,\.
