I wonder why PC leaves that under pantry space void?

The 50 amp appears to be the same size box as the 30 amp, plenty of room under the curb side bed as shown in my picture. Any place upstream from the inverter/converter is after the transfer switch...why would you not want to protect from the generator output also?

Here is where I put my 30 amp Progressive Ind. EMS located under curb side bed 2551, even room for a small expansion tank.
It just needs to go anywhere inline after the transfer switch. The orange wire is coming into it from the rear of the coach.

Insurance regs make sense. I never thought of that. It would be nice if the RV parks would inform us of this when asking for the RVIA number. I guess that could be the same thing for no older than 10 years rules?

There are several threads on this forum about electric management systems, either built in or plug in, each with their own advantages. They not only protect from surge, but also under and over voltage (a real and damaging danger) reverse polarity, improper ground, frequency, etc. Here's a link to a popular provider that has both types:

Mine doesn't have one either. I  looked it up and it is the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) seal. RVIA is a national association representing RV manufacturers and parts suppliers who together produce more than 95% of all RVs manufactured in the United States. Some campgrounds think that it means something relating to quality (LOL.)  Supposedly RVIA approved rigs are constructed better. They use this to keep conversions out of their parks. Like the RV parks that don't want 10 year old rigs in their snooty places.  Pretty hard to tell my 2010 2551 from a 2020.
Fun to read what people think of it online...

As it has been said i'm sure before...why would I want to go to a place that would allow people like me in?

Don't forget that it is unwise to run your tank below 1/4 full.  This is because as the fuel level lowers further, the fuel pump inside the tank is no longer submerged in fuel.  It then runs hotter reducing it's life expectancy.  This rule applies in any vehicle with the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.  And that is almost every vehicle made since the 80's.
I did not know this fact, but it does make sense...why is this not mentioned in the owners manual, or is it mentioned and I missed it?

This is how my 2010 2551 is and I was assured when I asked that this is how it is, not to worry. I avoid walking that close to the edge anyway.

Thanks for sharing your clever storage ideas.  I especially like the storage behind the toilet. Never would have thought about that.  I bet PC could make that an option!

Now can you figure a way to extend my passenger side PC 2551 twin bed a couple inches? It is currently 74 inches and I am about 74 inches long and shrinking!  I figure if I wait long enough things will work out.

If you are shrinking as fast as I am you won't need to wait long...
And I've discovered that a little Single Malt after dinner makes any bed more comfortable. :)(:

The warning could be for speed, sharp curves or steep hills, school zones, slower speed limits ahead or even for weather warnings.  Depends on what features are built into the radio/GPS.

Did you get any manuals with the unit?
The operating manuals should be found online, google make and model number.

General Discussion / Re: Southco Cabinet Latches
« on: December 14, 2019, 09:40:58 am »
I'd sure like to find a latch that didn't sound like a firecracker every time you open and close a cabinet door.  In a campground you can even hear your neighbors operating their cabinet latches.

Has anyone tried eliminating latches and replacing the hinges with self-closing hinges?  Will they stay closed and quiet en route?

If I can get parked perfectly level the cabinet doors will stay closed without latching and we do just that. Maybe I'll try self closing hinges and just not latch them while stationary.

General Discussion / 5 Star Performance Tune on Sale
« on: December 05, 2019, 12:51:39 pm »
After reading all of the great reviews I finally went for the 5 Star Performance Tune kit. As luck would have it the price was a holiday special of $499 instead of the retail $549. Bonus surprise, as in the box was a coupon for a $40 rebate in the form of a pre-paid Visa card. Looks like the deal runs thru Dec.

https://5startuning.com/product/7015fs/

If you've not been too naughty Santa might be persuaded to slip one down your chimney.  ;)

I installed it per the directions in about 10 minutes with no problems on our 2010 2551...can't wait to give it a thorough test!

Their test demo video on their website uses a 2016 Allegro beast coming in at 23000 lbs, ( a monster with the same 6.8L V10!!! no wonder we pass them up all the time!) ;) registering a 10% improvement from stock across the board.   All reviewers seem to be impressed with the far better shifting patterns and power curves they experienced.

Does anyone out there have real experience in performance and economy with the 5star?

Peace on Earth would be an even nicer gift...(exactly)...Happy Holidays

I'd check all of the chassis ground cables first and also battery cables, remove , clean, reassemble...with fingers crossed.

Costco or any reputable dealer would not install tires that are under-rated for the vehicle.   The tire pressures on the door jamb are correct. Weighing is important to be sure you are not exceeding the load limit of the tire installed. Just stop at any weight station when you start on your trip. You can always jettison water, the food, the dog, the kids, (anything but the beer) if needed.
