Ours broke 2 days ago, and we are in Alaska. Carol is forwarding the parts to a campground for us.

I've been on the Alaska HWY for the last week or so - During this time I've seem daily, multiple power errors. The errors range from high or low frequency and/or high or low voltage. The PI EMS RW50 has performed as advertised, shutting down the power until the error clears.  Most of the campgrounds with power are off the grid and operate on generators.  Really glad I have the system.  I am also carrying a Hughes Autoformer, which I had to use numerous times in southern Canada campgrounds during an unusual 2 week heatwave.  With everyone running AC (in an area where AC is rarely used) park power in most campgrounds, was stressed and very low voltage was the norm.

My tax bill last April was $9000 in Knoxville, TN on our new 2552.

It works great,  We have been using it everyday for the last 4 weeks.  It's now a 3 way valve, no need to turn the valve when switching from city to internal.  I like it

I made a stop in Elkhart last week to get an initial oil change and have a few minor issues fixed before heading north to Alaska. Because I had a small leak when hooked to city water, Dave Ponsler had Doug replace the 4 way valve with one of the brand new brass valves. It took about an hour to install. It’s different- the new valve looks very substantial and only has three positions: Fill at 9 o’clock, winterize at 3 o’clock,  and city/dry camp at 12 o’clock.  This means you no longer have to switch from City to Normal !!!!!!  So far the new valve seems to be working perfectly.  If we have any problems I’ll be sure to  post.  All I can say is customer service at Phoenix is phenomenal

We are on the road with our new 2552 purchased in April 2018.  I am using both the Sanicon and the manual dump systems.  If we have a septic connection at the campsite I usually hook up the old school 3 inch hose, open the manual valve at the back and the grey water electric valve.  This allows us to take leisurely showers. I don't dump the black tank util it at least 2/3's full.  Last night we pulled into a campground with only electric and water, so, before parking,  I drove through the central dump station and dumped both tanks using  the Sanicon system. The Sanicon is fast, clean and convenient.
I had Phoenix install an old school 3 ' hose storage tube under the coach as part of our delivery package.  Earl thought it was overkill, but I like it!!!.

During our walk through two weeks ago we were told the macerator/pump is positioned slightly above the floor of the tank.  I verified this by running the black tank dry using the Sanicon.  I then hooked up an old school 3 inch hose with a see thru elbow and dumped again using the electric and manual valve.  There was clearly additional waste water in the black tank, so I suspect it's possible for sludge to build up in the black tank if not properly flushed. Besides flushing the tank I intend to occasionally use the old school hose.

Scan guage 2,   I have a dash rug and simply used Velcro to mount the gauge just under the handle on the drivers side.  I pushed the wire under the rubber seal on the cab side of the door.  It works vert well

You are correct.  I have 2 backup cameras (one pointed down so I can see the hitch, the other looks behind) and they are both on the monitor above the rear-view mirror.  I do have to switch feeds on the backup monitor to change cameras.  I'm using a stand alone Garmen GPS, that I currently have on a windshield suction mount.  Although the side cameras display on the pioneer monitor I'm really only using that monitor for the radio and Bluetooth. I like my current setup, and if I had to do it over I would skip the side cameras.

Our new 2552 (2 weeks old), has the pioneer system, with Bluetooth and no navigation.  We opted to display the side cameras on the Pioneer system and the 2 backup cameras on the monitor. We had the option of reversing the displays but I'm glad we set it up the way we did. There is some glare on the pioneer screen with the side cameras).  Additionally, due to the location of the cameras on the side of the cab, the wider body of the camper box interferes with full camera side visibility. The side mirrors are the best I've ever owned, providing exceptional side visibility.  Additionally, the cameras have  a slight delay after engaging the turn signals which i found annoying. In hindsight I should have skipped the side cameras.   As a side note we purchased the new JBL surround sound system and it's totally awesome, well worth the money if you like music!  P.S. We are still ecstatic with the quality and workmanship!!!!!

We picked up our new 2552 last week.  After a couple of days, we noticed the refrigerator door was not locking (with a lot of stuff in the door).  Bob at Phoenix fixed the issue in about 5 minutes by adding a couple of washers on the bottom hinge pin - works great now.  When he was fixing it, he pointed out that the newer Norcold models have steel hinges - they fixed the earlier problem with the plastic lower hinges.  I thought the refrig worked very well, at least for over the 2 weeks we used it.
