Another alternative is aftermarket driving/fog lights. We chose aftermarket Driving Force lights mounted on a Go Rhino Grille Guard. We had ford driving and fog lights on earlier vehicles that were more for show than functional. We are very satisfied with our current setup. There are different lenses for driving (clear), fog (yellow), and snow (blue). We use the fog lenses mostly on our motorhome, but move the lights to our F150 pickup truck in the winter for use when driving in the snow or our long Alaskan nights. We have been using them for 3 years and are very happy with them.

Our 2012 has 48,000 miles and we are leaving soon on a trip east that should bring our total to 60,000. We live in Alaska  and we have driven the Alaska Highway multiple times to visit family and the attractions in the lower 48.

We have 2 Euro chairs that we move in and out thru the passenger door. Extraction and  insertion of the chairs is a bit awkward but gets easier with practice. We make decisions on use/not use based on where we are headed and for how long. Most of the time we leave one at home. The wife prefers the couch and I use the other one to work at the desk/table that comes with the 2400. We keep the chair firmly secured when traveling using the Phoenix provided bolt clamp. I am of the opinion based on a close call with a chair that had not been secured that it is much safer to clamp the chair down securely when the coach is in motion. We clamp it in as part of the pre departure checklist and unclamp it when we set up for the night. Full use of the chair features is not practical while the chair is secured to the floor at least in the 2400 configuration.

This forum has been very helpful in helping to identify and control coach noises. This weekend I implemented the solution outlined earlier in this topic stream. I have yet to attempt to address the noise from the engine cover (lack of noise insulation) and I've given up on the A/C and generator noises; otherwise lots of squeaks are now quieted thanks to the creative solutions others have shared.

We have the same problem and have tried multiple fixes without success, so we are cautiously excited about your posting. How about a photo to help clarify positioning of the added fasteners. Thanks.

A similar flip up table is supplied by Phoenix between the Euro Chairs in the 2400. That might be a factory option for people who aren't handy enough to make their own.

This issue has been discussed in the forum several times in the last couple of years. My wife has made the same observation about the heat. The consensus is that the cause is the catalytic converter. I do not think there is a good solution. Likewise I don't think there is any danger, just discomfort.

Very nice, well done on all the custom touches!  Taking notes for our next PC.

It is a 20 amp fuse located behind the plastic kick panel that houses the hood release (Ford).
40  Main Forum / General Discussion / Slippery Upper Cabinets on: May 10, 2015, 02:18:38 am
Suggestions would be appreciated on how to keep stuff from sliding around in the upper cabinets that run along the ceiling  on each side toward the front of the  coach. Each night when we camp we find stuff has moved forward and back as well as everywhere in between. We have tried all sorts of liners which seem to slip and slide as much as the stuff being stored. Has anyone had any success with either a commercially available or custom solution. Thanks.

I contacted Kermit who quickly pointed me in the right direction. It ended up being a blown fuse up front where the Phoenix installed accessories tie into the Ford electrical system. Replaced the fuse and all is well.
42  Main Forum / General Discussion / Rear view mirror / Camera monitor on: March 23, 2015, 09:57:36 pm
We took advantage of temps in the 40's to begin the process of getting our PC ready for camping. We noticed that the rear view mirror and rear camera  Sony display were not getting power. I pulled the  kick panel near the emergency brake and checked all the fuses assuming the wiring passes thru that area. There did not appear to be any blown fuses  and even after changing several there was no change. Does anyone know if both the Sony display monitor and the  rear view mirror with temperature and compass both run off the same fuse and where that fuse is located? Does anyone have any other ideas what might be causing this issue? And yes, I did try pushing the power button on each unit .... My wife kept bugging me to keep trying!

90 inches on the passenger side from the refrigerator wall to the passenger side drop off. 84 inches on the drivers side from the wardrobe wall to the driver side drop off. Our unit has the slide on the drivers side that has the queen size couch/bed and the wardrobe.measurements made with shaking hands; it is still cold and snowing, but it is light.

We own a 4x4 model 2400 PC. Four wheel drive on a motor home has its advantages and disadvantages. Keep in mind it weighs in over 12,000 lbs and has a fairly high center of gravity. It is not a Jeep Wrangler. We love our PC and it is really good on snow covered roads and ok on mud as long as there is a solid base, but I would not classify it as a off road vehicle.

We have a 2012 2400 and would be happy to provide the requested measurements. Right now it is dark and cold and snowing so it will be a few hours. My only caution would be that when we were researching PC's we looked at a 2010 model 2400 the finishes and therefore the dimensions were somewhat different than the unit we had built. It might be worthwhile to call Earl or someone at the plant to get the measurements on the current build platform and see what they can suggest to meet your specific needs.
