We can go 5 without any problem in a 2350 - with the 2552 you can probably do better - take Navy showers!!!

Hey Ron -

We took 3 months for the entire trip -- about 6 weeks in Alaska. including a week and a half in Denali (the furtherest you can drive to, dry camping for one week, and more modern for 4 days.  It took 24 days (kind of liesurely from here DE to Whitehorse, YT (which I HIGHLY recommend), via the Trans Canada Hwy.  Instead of returning right away, we went down the OR coast & visited my daughter in CA, which added 3 weeks.  In all, when you retire, DO THE TRIP!!!  I've learned enough about you on this forum (and seeing you in Glacier NP) that you will love it.  As was said, Provincial parks in Canada are wonderful, as well as those in Alaska.

Ron...
Any idea regarding the chassis length? I'm wondering if the length will increase - if it would create a Sprinter with a 2552 layout, it would appeal to a large group, I would think.

Hi Pappy:
We just completed a 3 month trip to Alaska, the coast of Oregon, and Northern California this summer. I have a "standard" (if there is such a thing!) 2017, 2350 Sprinter with one solar panel that Phoenix installed. and standard refrigerator.  We dry camped for a week at the furtherest campground in Denali, and only ran the generator once to used the microwave.  The rest of the time (coffee pot, etc.,) we had plenty of power. I would guess 1/3 of the other nights involved dry camping as well.  Of course Alaska had a lot of sun, and, for much of the trip we were driving 200 miles or so, so the batteries stayed up.  In short, I'm very happy with the solar, and, while I would have preferred 2 panels, 1 seems to get us by.

Thanks -- I'll try that as well as the 1000 other things!!! Currently, the electronic things throughout on the inside, and Irish Spring soap underneath...Next will be the peppermint oil!!!  Yes, I store the rigs at the farm I sold to the kids - they feed the cats, so plenty of mice around....

I had a problem with mice chewing the wires at the inverter (mine is under the bed), and thought that solved it, then found they had also chewed the wire running from the inverter to the panel.  Believe me, I don't wish the same for you, but it might help,,,

When I picked up my coach at the factory, there was water in the bottom - Bob drilled a couple holes in the bottom so no more water.  I just had a new cap installed on the back (long story[), and i will keep a close eye on the hatch - if I get water, I'll do the same.

They do some work in Elkhart, and I would suggest you call them.  They might be able to trouble shoot over the phone, and, in addition, there are several videos on adjusting yourself.  I have talked to the customer service folks on various items with my 5th wheel, and found them helpful.  I don't know the number off hand, but you can get ti on the internet.

Good luck,
Jack

I will echo Holly's post about service under the new ownership.  Although I have a delay due to an extended time in the paint shop, Dave has been fantastic in seeing that warranty issues were taken care of, and Doug has been exceptional in getting work done - even stayed after hours one day to take care of an emergency issue while I was on my way to Alaska.  These two, along with Carol, have gone over and above to provide the good service we have always enjoyed at Phoenix,

You BOTH know the Marines is a department of the navy....   The MEN'S department!   roflol


Hooah!  10th MT INF US Army    :)(:



I love that story, and have used it many times.  My wife is also retired military, the United States Navy Nurse Corps.  She just rolls her eyes when I make the "men's department" comment.  We all know it's true.  I suppose this is getting off topic, BUT, the "wooing sound" has been resolved. 

Had the original poster indicated a "whirring sound" instead of "wooing sound", I could have instantly diagnosed the problem.  I am very familiar with the sound of a roof mounted dish searching for signal.  :cool

Cheers..... :)(:

How about the pressure relief valve on the hot water heater?  As the water gets hot, pressure increases, etc.
