Welcome! We got our 2100 Cruiser in July and love it!
We bought the outside screens and really like them. They're easy to put up, take down and fold up for storage. When on the road we usually just put them on the sofa or at night if we haven't put them up yet, on one of the front seats. We use them just about all the time, when they're up we can see out and nobody can see in. At night we pull the front curtain for privacy. Some folks have said they don't like those but they work fine for us. On the road during the day if we park someplace the sun is shining into the front windshield we just pop up a couple of those fold up sunscreens.
   We paid $399 for ours. We bought them from Amanda and assume she's still taking care of those. We think they're well worth the money.
Enjoy!  Yahoo!

So far not that bad. Even in little Cloudcroft $3.69 is the highest! We've decided there is no place in the U.S. (maybe the world) where roads aren't being worked on or needing to be worked on.   Cry
Travel safely,

Glad your maiden trip is going well so far! We're currently on a short trip to Cloudcroft, NM which is our first trip that wasn't connected to either coming home from Elkhart or going to the Cruiser Reunion in Kerrville. We've also learned a lot from reading the posts like you did. It's a great source of help and information and it's fun, too! We've also found that the folks at Phoenix Cruiser don't seem to mind answering (sometimes dumb) questions.

Fortunately we didn't have any problem driving up here to Cloudcroft at 8,000 ft., however the road is so crooked we could only drive about 45 to 50.

Have fun  Smile

The reunion was held in Kerrville, Texas, September 6-11, and we got home September 12th. We've been meaning to send a post since we got back but haven't had the time. We had a great time and met lots of great Cruiser owners. The worst thing about the event was the 104 temperature the first couple of days but then it cooled off and was pleasant. The reunion will be held next year on September 5th - 10th in Petoskey, Michigan. Great location to combine a trip to Elkhart with the reunion. We recommend it highly.

While there we had a bad, bad news event but then very good news. About the second day we decided to dump using the Sani-Con. As soon as we turned the pump on, black water began pouring out! We turned off the pump as fast as possible but had a mess.  Help We couldn't determine what was happening and didn't know how we could find out. We hadn't taken a 3" hose (cleverly thinking we wouldn't need one). We went to the office to see if they had a hose and connectors. They had a hose but no connectors. The manager called the maintenance man who spent quite a while, and a few trips back to his rig, trying to help us out.

Then the good news! One of our Cruiser neighbors came by and mentioned that Kermit was just across the road working on another Cruiser. We didn't realize he was over there. We knew he was at the reunion but assumed he was just there for PR work. We found out his joining the reunions are definitely working trips for him. He spent all day (and maybe more) working on various problems people had. Paul went over to ask if he could help us. It turned out our neighbor had the same problem we did, broken bayonets that attach the pump to the rest of the system. When he finished hers he came over, crawled under our rig and proceeded to remove the pump. He told us to call the office when we got home and they would send a new pump part. He showed Paul how to install the new one. We still can't believe our good luck. Of all the places to find out our Sani-Con was leaking what better place than just across the road from Kermit!  Heart Shower

We called the office when we returned and Carol sent a new part. Paul installed it and so far it works like a charm. Hurray! Other than the pump problem everything else worked fine and we had a great trip.

We're leaving next week for a few days in Cloudcroft, New Mexico for their AspenFest. We've been there several times and always have fun, and the Aspens are beautiful.

Marilyn, as Tom said, it's very easy to pull out the pins and fold up the ladder. It slips back into its hinges and holds itself up and when you're ready to fold it again you just raise it a bit, fold down and replace the pins. I also worried about how much trouble it would be to get in the back compartment but it's really not.  Smile

Wow! Sent this to our granddaughter who is the brownie maker in the family. Looks like it would be easy to third if you don't have the crew you're feeding. Thanks.

Aimee, we'd love to participate. We really enjoyed showing our Cruiser to Kay and Rodney Richardson from Granbury last week. They loved it. We gave them a brochure with our name on it in case they decide to place an order. As several people have said to us, they're interesting in downsizing. Amanda gave us several brochures when we were there and along the road on the way back from Elkhart we gave away all of them along with a tour. We have one more I'm saving to make copies of in case we run into anyone else who's interested. This sounds like a great program.

Paul says the problem is the unusually high atmospheric temperatures. We have this problem in Texas all the time! The roads actually expand in length and the GPS has no way to know this, so using its old memorized maps it gives the wrong speed calculation. That's why the rest of the country is experiencing the problem this year! It's hot everywhere.

Thanks for an entertaining afternoon! rolling on the floor
