1  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Converting Interior Lighting To Low Power Warm LED Lighting, Very Affordable on: December 13, 2017, 09:45:19 pm
Ron, Just finished converting all of my fixtures. Thankyou for your engineering skills and putting together this info.
I couldn't find the leds or switches as they were off the market by now.
But found what appeared to be similar.
I did maybe almost 4 different configurations. All dependent on its location.
Example... Bathroom I wanted lots of lighting for the MRS's and a possible night light.
Well, the nite light (one string set, of 3 led's) is certainly too much for a night light. So will cut some resistors to fix that.
I did wire each fixture, so it could be reverse engineered. (although, this will not happen as far as I can see)

End result... Yes, as you mentioned, a softer, less obtrusive lighting. And.... cannot forget Dry-Camping batteries will love them.

Thanks
Denny

1. Does your Phoenix Cruiser have a slide out? -- Yes, one slide with fridge and couch on it

2. If you have a slide out, do you have any problems with it? --NO... operates fine, but makes some unusual clunking sounds I have now figured out where it's coming from.

3. If you were to get another new Phoenix Cruiser, would you or would not get the slide out? -- Yes ...  definitely.. Lots more room

4. I you where to get any new motorhome, would you or would not get a slide out? -- WITH slide ... Yes... again definitely

I didn't get an extinguisher in my 2014 2350. Was I supposed to or is this thread about owners installing their own?

John, I simply ran coax's to the dash wherever I could hide them the best. Once under dash , went towards door leaving a bit of slack and exited the cables through the door where mirror is mounted to door. I will try a pic for ya.

This is Denny, k9aeg
is a picture of where my Yaesu FT-857/(sometimes FT-817 below it) is located just behind passenger seat. So from top to bottom, the hanging cluster is Clock, ft-856, Winlink Modem, with sometimes ft815 hanging below that.  Just use valcro for modem and 817. 

Antenna's Yaesu ATAS HF screwdriver mounted on Left Mirror, and 2m/440 on right mirror.

Kenwood D-700 remotely mounted passenger side under dash. Control head dash mounted drivers side.

hope this help a bit.  73's
10  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: The fake leather on my seats and sofa is falling apart on: October 07, 2017, 10:40:44 am
OK....I called PC and they said that they would "sell" me replacement covers for my seats at a tad above what they paid$245.00. Hmmmmm..I found a spot shop4seats.com and found new seats at a reasonable cost. $245x2= $490 + take the seat out/take to an upholster /pay $110.00 per seat to cover/pick up said seat and return to motorhome/reinstall. shop4seats, offers fabric or leather and for $90.00 will upgrade foam! Their sofas/ tvrecliners  kinda costly so, I will be buying one from Amazon=reasonable. I will be replacing the "euro" cars with 2 recliners from shop4seats. Its a real shame that this faux leather crap was used in an otherwise great motorhome...but, thats what you have to expect when you use inferior products from CHINA!....and don't bother calling pauls, unless you want to spend the grand kids inheritance.


Thanks for the updates. I was going to pursue those avenues. Guess we're on our own. PC doesn't want to help us.
Sad, because it's not our faults their Chinese fabrics are failing.  Anyone have any other comments on what other avenues we can pursue?

Yes sadly, I have to agree things may be going south over there at PC. 


Case in point; I was in communication with Kermit to find a solution for my peeling fake leather on some of my seats.  He wanted a photo of them. i sent him the required photo's.  No have not heard from him since, after numerous email attempts.

So believe things are not going well there. Very sad, as I cannot show my coach off to perspective shoppers as am embarrassed by the fake leather problems.  But maybe, the new owners don't really care  about future sales. This would be sad, and not good for us owners.

Denny, and Barb
12  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Time for a new 2350 mattress after 10 years. Any recommendations? on: September 28, 2017, 07:39:18 pm
We simply ordered a similar sized 10"thick memory foam plus 2 other foams, mattress from Walmart. Took it out of it's cover, then placed the original mattress on top. Mark size with black marker. Cut to size with large sharp knife. Replacement cover, and place in coach.

Ok guys and gals... I went with the "real" ceramic for the backsplash.   Maybe an overkill, but it is REAL...  OK? 

As far as raising the REAR... I went with the Firestone (recommended from other RV sites), AIR BAGS.   Ok?  Lots of positive and negative stuff about Air Bags, but hey... Nothing is perfect. They work, and yes the ride is a bit harsher. But again... this is a TRUCK we are driving. Not a SUV. (although it seems like one and I need to remember this, while driving). But seriously folks... the air bag does give you the flexibility to adjust to what you want. I personally like it.  My 2 cents worth.....
