Thank you all very  much! I'll try each method until one works :)

I have a 2018 2552 PC. I recently removed the drawer in the kitchen that guards the hot water heater bypass valves. When I try to insert the drawer, I get a hard stop about the point where the black plastic levers are half way in. Lift both, push both, push one lift other, nothing seems to work.

Anyone have a detailed set of instructions on how to do this in a fool (me) proof manner? Thanks a lot!  John

General Discussion / PI EMS-HW30C Error code E 9
« on: July 07, 2018, 05:01:06 pm »
While hooked up at the factory in mid-May, my Progressive Industries surge suppressor unit read "E 0" - everything normal. After a 600+ mile drive home and connected to a dedicated 120VAC 15A line at home, I get an error code "E 9". The manual says this is a datalink error and to call PI Tech Support.

Has anyone experienced this? Is this a difficult fix? Thanks a lot - John (2018 2552)

One grab bar picture; identical one on other side. Sorry, no Duluth this year. Hopefully rally next year.

General Discussion / 2552 Delivery Day at the Factory Monday May 14
« on: May 20, 2018, 11:42:53 am »
Highlights of Delivery Day at the factory:

•   Meeting Lee and Diane Ingold from Ohio, who were having repairs and maintenance done on their newly purchased used 2552. We hope to camp with them in the future.
•   Walk through with Barry Hyser, George Tschida, with cameos from Bobby on the shop floor.
•   Final finances with Keith Kinder, which went well.
•   Factory tour, after walk through, with Barry
•   Camping on the factory lot 1st night, with 30A service and filled freshwater tank

Walkthrough (video taped on a GoPro with chestie harness)
•   Arrived at 09:30am for 11am appointment; Barry appeared and asked if we were ready to start walk through – so we did.
•   George Tschida, a talented hands-on engineer who performs the PDI, joined us for the walk through. He gave me a copy of his PDI checklist and showed me that he had printed a copy of my “2552 Test Plan” spreadsheet in his clip board.
•   4 Way valve had raised black letters for the functions against a black valve assembly – hard to read. Barry arranged for someone to print out labels with a label maker for all four functions – problem solved.
•   Chuck (co-owner) came over and introduced himself and said PC was considering adding a pair of grab bars just inside the side entrance – were we interested? Yes was our answer – he gave us two, and Bobby found the right hardware and installed them for us, one on each side. They helped us a lot getting in and out of the coach.
•   Bobby drilled a hole and added a gasket in over bed compartment for my wife’s CPAP machine – a custom installation! Bobby also installed my two brackets for the mag light flashlight, just above the fire extinguisher.
•   Barry was incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and engaged – quite a positive experience for us!

Factory Tour (reinforced why we bought from PC)
•   PC uses rubber pucks or pads to reduce the vibration and noise between the foundation and the flooring of the rig – the same technique the US Navy does to reduce noise and vibrations on our submarines.
•   I learned that PC’s design and assembly of the ‘house’ to the foundation precludes torqueing of the house – torqueing caused a major window leak in my previous Class C RV
•   Phoenix Cruiser pays incredible attention to detail and fit and finish. I recommend you ask for a factory tour as part of your delivery day if you haven’t had one yet.

Features on our new 2552 of immediate benefit
•   Steering Stabilizer Plus for driving down the road
•   Cab window tinting and eyebrow across windshield
•   Mobileye Safety Awareness system
•   Side turn signal cameras
•   Additional outside lights over water panel and rear of coach.

We had an exceptional delivery day at PC in Elkhart! Everyone from tippy top management down to the shop floor was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We did not expect to meet an owner – and there he was on the shop floor talking to us. PC has an incredible culture and attitude – we were blown away by the experience and hope that yours goes as well.

I'm an old test engineer who along with my wife Madonna will be taking delivery on Monday the 14th of our 2552. I am sharing the test plan I created - a spreadsheet - that is derived from our build list, change orders, and watching Earl and Kyle run through their videos. Hopefully, this will help some of you in planning and checking out your new rig. You may not have all that we ordered, but it should help with some ideas. The spreadsheet has 3 tabs:  Inside, sorted from front to rear of rig; Outside, sorted from front to rear of rig; and my original list prior to sorting.

We ordered our 2552 in the 1st week of January 2018. With full body paint - seems we were "in paint" at least 5 weeks,

Very little info on warranty other than a spiffy video on line. I may elect something from Good Sam after one year.

For our highly customized 2552, ordered at the beginning of January 2018, delivery is now May 14 2018. So, roughly 4 1/2 months.

We just spoke with Keith Kinder, and we will meet him at the factory on Monday May 14 at 11am! Madonna and I are so excited!//BTW:  Keith is away from the office all next week, so we are to talk to Barry if we need anything.

Madonna and I ordered our 2552 at the beginning of January. We ordered just about every option imaginable, including full paint. We were in paint, from what I can tell, about 5 weeks. We're waiting for the call to schedule delivery. Don't know if the flooding in Elkhart slowed the paint process (off-site) down. Good luck!
