The vinyl flooring at Home Depot is very nice and is hard to tell the difference between the wood laminate or vinyl on some of them.

Our 2013 2350 has the new wood laminate floor. It is very nice looking, but if you walk around in socks be prepared to slide to your destination, it is slipery, and we have the darker color that shows every spec of everything on the floor.

Thanks everyone for all the great tips and ideas ... I now have to "SIT DOWN"  rolling on the floor  and try to visualize everyone's options and figure where to go from here ... and Yes Tom I agree that eight more screws are not the end of the world when it comes to making things work easier .... I just have to get past the putting holes in stuff phobia  Smile

Sue:

Thanks for all the neat pictures. I remember looking back through older pictures and seeing the counter extension and thinking what a great idea that was ... now I know who it belonged to Smile

The basket you have underneath the tp holder .. you said that was for storage (?)  where is your trash basket ?

I have the towel bar that you had over the sink cabinet door for my hand towel  and that works great.( also from your previous pictures) I also like the hook on the side of the medicine cabinet and I think we had one in our last 2350.

The towel bar behind the bathroom door looks really nice "BUT" seems like you could catch yourself on that when trying to enter the bathroom through that somewhat tight door opening (for me anyway).

I had the sink drain basket in our last 2350 ..  from viewing your pictures on the PC site  ThumbsUp .  The stopper in our last 2350 would not stay up in the sink. This one works fine but I will put another  strainer basket in again becuase I am the queen of dropping things Smile.

Also found out that the walls under the bathroom sink cabinet did not go all the way up and had to have Vince pulls the drawers out under the closet area in the hall and fish around to find the things that fell behind that I stacked up to high .... oops ... learning experience.

Love the towels from JC Penny ... just bought a few to match the 2350's colors and now that we have her back with her new beautiful shower pan I can load her up and get ready for another short PC discovery trip.

Thank You for all the pictures, which were a big help in our last 2350 ..... and to Judi and Ron for the butcher block replacement basket ... that I finally get to load up today Smile

When we had the 2350 here is what we did to add a little more storage in the bathroom.

Bathroom Counter Extension (Image Bath-1)

Matching corian cut to size and fitted in place.  The step down design allowed for a cleaner look and no need to try and match the sink edge pattern.  The extension provides a place for the tissue both top and bottom.

Additional Storage For Tall/Bulky Items (Images Bath -2 & Bath-3)

Located between the shower and the sink cabinet this area was perfect for tall items like curly irons and bulky hair dryers.  Image Bath-2 shows the top in place and Image Bath-3 shows the top removed for easy access.

Keep Rings Out Of The Trap (Image Bath-4)

A simple sink strainer from Home Depot can save hours of work and that priceless ring

Just One More Hook (Image Bath-5)

Another trip to Home Deport for a matching hook.  Use existing screw in side of medicine cabinet to attach hook.

We had the 2012 - 2350 with the air mattress couch bed and when we were going through my problems with the mattress on our main bed .... I tried the couch air mattress but Vince said that if either of us got up we would shoot the other one off the bed  Grin. It wasn't to terribly comfortable but it was better then our corner bed .. until we fixed it.

Our 2013 - 2350 has the electric memory foam couch/bed.  Could not be more easy to open up and I guess the bed doesn't seem bad ... but I think with the shape of the cushions when they come down ... looks like you would still need a top foam to make it smooth and comfortable ... but I agree that it beats the air mattress hands down.

But shhhhhh we don't want anyone to know that we have an extra bed  Smile Smile

Frecklesweety:

THE MATTRESS .... oh yes .... there is a top and bottom. And it is not the most comfortable mattress in the world anyway... not even close.

You can feel the difference .. one side is soft and the other side is harder.

We wents to Sam's club when we brought our 2013 - 2350 home and bought a 2-1/2" thick memory foam pad for the top of the mattress and cut it down to follow our matress. We have only taken her out once but it seemed ok.

On our last 2350 we purchased a new inner spring mattress from camping world which was wonderful but it wasn't angled off and it made the squeeze into the bathroom that much harder .... but it was soooo comfy !

I have lower back problems so I am not a happy camper if the bed isn't comfortable .

Good Luck,
Carol  Smile

Sue:

We don't have a shower door ... just the cloth pleated slide.

Where did you attach them on your 2350 ?
Carol

Carol,

These are the ones we use http://www.amazon.com/Towel-Bar-Self-Adhesive-Clear-12/dp/B001I024IC

We put one near the top of the shower door and the other about midway down.  They work good but if I were doing it again I would just go to a hardware store and buy the cheap towel bars that allow you to cut the bar down to the size you need.  I would then attach the two ends to the front of the shower door with a heavy duty two-sided tape.

With these that we bought we attached with a heavy duty two sided tape (didn't use the adhesive that it came with).  We used these same ones in our 2350 so 4 years and no problems plus no holes in the walls.

Marilyn: The picture came through perfect. I like the look of those and I have seen them before someplace but wasn't thinking about a towel holder at the time.  Are they wide enough to hold a bath towel ?

I will certainly research them .... they may just work .... just dreading holes ... but guess we can't go forever without putting a hole in the wall someplace  Cry

Carol, these are our towel racks, on the inside of the bathroom door (there are holes under the end that swivels). They're paper towel holders that fold down flat if nothing is in them. We used the same racks in our last rv and liked them. We got these at the Container Store but don't remember the brand name. If you don't have a Container Store near you you could research with them online and then find out who else sells them.

Am attaching a photo but haven't done that before so don't know if it will work.  LOL

I have the command hooks with a metal hook on the end .... but the towels don't air out very well. We have draped or hung the towels from cabinet knobs over the cab but knew that there had to be a better way.
 
I also thought about the tension rods being as I have gone wild with those in the refrigerator and across the top of our trash can in the bathroom which keeps the trash can from moving or falling and I have studied the walls in the shower but come up empty.

Carol,
We use the large size of Command Hooks--not optimal but they work. I have often thought of those tension rods (the 24" size) to hang stuff on (towels or whatever) but we haven't got to that issue yet.

After showers, we drape the towels over our chairs or the awning. Hate it but maybe there is a better way that others on the Forum can help us with.

Took our 2350 in today for a new shower pan .... it was cracked when we brought her home ... but those things happen .... just drained in more then one place when we took her out for the shake down trip !  Smile

Has anyone designed or added a bath towel holder to the shower  ... I hate the thought of holes anywhere.

Thought about one that is retractable and putting it in the shower somehow and I see some people hanging their wet towels out on the arms of the awnings  Blush but I figure there must be a better way ... help !

Ohhhhhh life is so hard  rolling on the floor

25  Main Forum / General Discussion / Heat Strip or Furnace on: February 15, 2013, 02:13:13 pm
Question ... being from Florida and being as we are pretty new to the RV thing (2nd Year), we took our 2350 out last week for a shake down trip to Ocala (Central Florida). Well in the middle of the night I woke up and felt like an ice cube !!!

Being as we rarely use out heat at home and being as we are not real familiar with a heat strip or furnace, "Vince" has a couple of questions:
#1 Do you only use the furnace if you are dry camping ... and does it only work off the propane ??
#2 The heat strip on the a/c thermostat is used only when you are connected in a park with electric ???

I ended up just putting a heavy blanket on. It was only in the mid to high 40's but for these two Florida transplants since childhood,  it was pretty eye opening in the middle of the night !!

I could feel the cold soaking through the wall and window "ON MY SIDE" of the bed .... While Mr. Sunshine next to me snored away totally unaware of anything  Hug2 !!!

Hopefully this cold stuff will go away soon and we won't have to deal with it, but just in case .... HELP !!

I think a bad thing is this ... if you look at an RV trader and try to enter in Phoenix Cruiser it does not exist. When we sold our first 2350 I had to put in "Class B" on RV trader and then it showed up but if I put in Phoenix anything, nothing happened.
We had to take our new unit in to our local RV repair station and they tried to looked up Phoenix Cruiser, nothing came up on their computers .... although that could be a good thing, that they are so excellent and have no problems so they don't pop up .... but any site I go on or in the RV magazines and in our case have the class B or even under B plus .... Phoenix Cruiser doesn't exist under the list of RV's. That is sad becuase it is an execellent coach and it is not getting exposed on any of the large sites  Cry  under any class that I could see.
