Is it 4 or 7 way receiver on the back for tow car.

We are considering the 2552 with the dinette, How hard or easy is it to put the table up or down.

Billy,
   Just a few thoughts on the dinette.  The table goes up and down very easily.  Lift the aisle end up, fold the table leg up and lift off the brackets on the wall.  Then lower the table to the support brackets on the edge of the seats.  We found the dinette was not very comfortable to sit and relax on as it is very upright seating and to sit with your back against the wall, not too comfortable with the window shade brackets behind you.  Also, one person has their back to the TV.  We also found the table makes a lot of noise when on the road from road vibrations and that is why we left it down and covered with the cushions while on the road.  We had the dinette in our 2350 and in our 2552 we opted for the couch.  We will get a pair of short table legs for the table, my wife will make a cushion for its top and we will use it as an ottoman.  That way we can sit together and relax.  Just my thoughts.
    Bob

We are going to try using the dinette as a combo. We've looked at a couple other B+'s and with the two large pillows we have, with the dinette cushions down my wife thinks we could use the two pillows against the frig wall? Not against the window. Just a thought? The 2552 would have a chair opposite the dinette. About now we've looked at so many I'm getting a little rummy   >:(

Does either the dinette or couch in a 2551/2552 have any seat belt positions, or the ability to add them?  Does it make a difference if it has a slide or not?   I don't see any seat belts in the PC pictures, but have seen them in some other brand B+ model pictures.   Thanks.

Firebird,
    Our 2350 (2010) had a dinette with no slide out and the dinette had seatbelts, if I recall correctly, on both sides.  Our 2552 with a slide and couch has seatbelts for the couch.

On our 2007, we have the standard 6 wire, 7 terminal plug.  The center terminal is not utilized in the wiring.

Our old tow vehicle did hot have secondary breaking, so we utilized a 4 pin harness between vehicles.

Our new tow has secondary braking, so we utilize all 6 wires.

Might want to run power from the MH to the toad through that unused center wire.  Keeps the battery in the toad up, from the aux brake system and lights.

One of the six wires already offers that, supplying power to the tow vehicle's battery.
