Sounds like Iím being sold a bill of something based on your findings. It does look like you were taken for a soaking just the same. Even on Amazon 10 motorcraft coil packs are $380.

I was just inquiring if anyone had done their plug and coil service.  Ford quick lane quoted me just over 500 for plugs snd coil pack service.  I thought it sounded high.. guess not. When I get mine done I think Iíll save the old coil packs

Mike. Good info thank you.  Being Ron and others apparently have read of increasing problems with a new design I canít help but wonder why or when it will be addressed? It seems to take forever before a manufacturer steps up and corrects a problem design.

Ron, I get it. My main point is for those that donít want a slide but want a quality unit like PC there is the option of simply not using the slide. And you are not likely to lose much if any on resale. There are rigs where you canít really use the rig unless the slide is out, fortunately PC has units where thatís not the case.

Ron, ok so tens of thousands of units with slides, some whole side slides. I have yet to read where the roof couldnít support the weight of the ac units.  Weight of the slide on a 2552 loaded as an example is a non issue. We drag more crap along that we never use and are never close to max. Heck we pack so heavy I usually place a case or more of wine under the bathroom sink. I have a dinette so thatís a nine issue as well. I havenít had any leaks in 74,000+ miles and itís now 10 years old.

Now onto the price difference. You said itís 5 grand more.  I have no idea if the exact amount but we will use your example. Being the market calls for more units with than with out how much of that 5 grand do you think youíll lose when you sell? I donít know if itís possible to find but I wonder what the price difference would be on say 2 exact 2552 units with same mileage (say 50K) when one has a a slide and one does not. Which sells faster as well and for more? Just how much do you lose? And letís not forget if you bought the rig to save money on vacation you made a very bad decision to begin with.

And for Peteís sake they can flat bed 45í rigs if need be or simply disconnect the drive shaft and use a traditional tow.

I get it your anti slide but many of your reasons have minimal  validity.

Ron, even being a downer thereís an easy work around. Just donít use the slide if your worried about it failing.  Thereís no weight issue and having the slide in does not take away from the rigs use. One of my friends would  always special orders cars with no ac because of his asthma. Said it was a waste of money because he couldnít use it. It took me years to get him to stop that, just donít use it and keep the resale value and ease of selling as well.

Iím betting offering deviations other than paint slows the assembly line considerably. So like you mentioned with the business cycles of the industry, once it slows again they very well open up to mods.

General Discussion / Spark plug service
« on: October 01, 2021, 01:48:05 pm »
Iím at about 74,000 miles. They claim plug service is due at 60,000 from what I can find on the net. A plug and coil pack service runs $500 give or take a few bucks in my area. Has anyone here had this service completed and if so at what mileage? How did the plugs look?

I would have thought theyíd be good for 100,000 miles but a mechanic I am not.

How strong are the metal latches? Wondering if plastic is better in that they would break rather than doing damage?

General Discussion / Re: Custom RV Mattresses, anyone bought one for 2551?
« on: September 30, 2021, 09:32:46 am »
A couple of options.

https://www.militarysupplyhouse.com/

https://www.foambymail.com/ 

Both places offer custom cuts. I believe foam by mail also offers generic sizes that you can cut yourself.  Both places offer several options in thickness and firmness.

Iíve purchased from foam by mail for rebuilding some seat cushions. Quality products but I have not purchased mattresses from either.

Don, does the 2551 have the euro recliner? Iím wondering what the price difference is between the two models. Could be itís not enough that most just go for the 2552. I bought used so itís what was out there at the time but I will say we use the Euro chair all the time. Other than that I doubt Iíd notice the 1 less foot.

RVrunner, canít say Iím surprised now that they no longer sell factory direct. The majority of buyers want a slide so itís a gamble sending out units to lots without.

KEB , never thought about the oem being metric and no idea if HF offers it in metric. In my instance this was the second set of shocks so no metric.
