I don't think ours has plastic at the bottom. We only flipped it once to look at what was scraping but I think it is a ring of wood with bare metal on the bottom. The bare metal ring is what scrapes across the floor. I'll have to look a little closer this weekend.

There are other recliners with that flip out footrest but I don't think they put rollers on them - probably something about that "object in motion tends to stay in motion" theory -- sit down with your beer, kick that baby into recline, and AWAY YOU GO... could be great entertainment for the spouse... Maybe John's chair WOULD benefit from wheels.

Our new PC came with built in tank sprayers for both tanks. We haven't checked them out yet but it looks like you hook a hose up to the inlet located near the macerator controls then turn them on and they spray inside the tanks. Is this a new addition or is it on the older PC's? If it is on the older ones, does it help and how often do you use them to hose down the inside of your tanks?

The macerator instructions also tell us to dump the black then close the valve; Open the grey, let the water flow into the black and equalize the tanks; close the grey and dump the black again. Open the grey, let the water equalize; close the grey and dump the black yet again; finally, you dump the grey and it rinses your hose. It says this gets the soapy water from the grey into the black to coat the tank. It takes a while this way but John and I thought it was so cool the first time we dumped. Sure beats the stinky slinky that wouldn't hook up right on the rental rig.

Billy, not exactly. Amazon has 12x12 sheets but it is thicker. I found description of something called "slick strips" at eplastics.com that comes as a tape product but not sure if it is the same material. Amazon carries slick strips in rolls. I have to check some things but tape and slide sure sounds like the way to go.

 Thank you, I will track it down.

Where did you buy the Delrin, how did you attach it and how many and how long are the strips? We figure you have to have enough strips to keep it stable. From what I found on the web, it sounds like Delrin is almost industrial strength Teflon - smooth and slick.

Has anyone put felt pads or something else on the bottom of the euro chair? Ours is very difficult to move and the bare metal base makes a scraping noise that tells me it isn't good for the chair or the vinyl floor. I'm looking at little round stick on felt pads - possibly stuck on with a bit of gorilla glue to assist the adhesive they already have on there.

I know the pads will make it more likely that the chair will wander while driving if we forget to clamp it down but we figure one sliding chair incident should reinforce our memory for future trips. John likes having the chair dead center in front of the TV so we'll be dragging it out and back a lot. (He's such a happy man in his new castle with his new throne - the euro chair, not that other one in the back of the coach.)

We are sincerely hoping we aren't in the recall but timing is right for us to be one of the unlucky ones. We are waiting for the wind to die down enough to open the awning and find the numbers. We drove up to her nap spot this weekend but the gusts were wicked and we figured it would be best to wait. We rented a storage space with about 4' between rigs on either side. We REALLY hope our awning doesn't open up and smack the guy next door. Besides the cost, we'd probably get evicted.

 ThumbsUp Awesome! Thank you - now that we know the secrets, nothing will ever break right? (That's how it SHOULD work). As soon as I figure out how to do it, I'm giving you a helpful.

No clue on electronics but factory advised us to spray the tracks of the screen and bathroom door with silicone spray.

- buy one of those expensive shade thingys that you place outside over the windshield.  We don't own one of those.

I believe the expensive shade thingys mentioned by Ron are the MagneShades sold at magneshade.com. When Amanda worked at Phoenix, she sold them to PC owners but she has moved on so they recommend you order direct from the manufacturer. I haven't ordered yet so I don't know the price. Besides blocking the sun, they give you a little privacy during the day with the ability to see out BUT it is like one way glass. Whichever side has more light is visible. If you are in at night with lights on, you want to close your privacy curtains as now they can see in but you can't see out very well.

We finally made it out of Indiana! We spent yesterday at the Ford dealer in Mishawaka or something. At first they said it sounded like something was loose in the bell housing - not the transmission itself but a loose screw or bolt or metal plate. So their transmission guy took it for a ride and said no, he thinks it is outside the housing and sounds like possibly a bolt or something loose between the heat shield and engine or just a loose shield altogether. Once it gets to a certain RPM (cruising speed) it gets going.  They could not get us in for service until next Thursday so the final diagnosis was they believe it to be safe to drive but it will be annoying as hell (their words).

So we just finished our first leg of the return trip and are stuck finding someone closer to home to work on it. John is driving for now and seemed moderately sane after 5 hours of engine song so we are somewhat good to go.

Signing off: STILL 2 Frazzled but now with a couple of screws loose.

P.S. We LOVE our PC!

Sue and Tom, we are going with your suggestions and are waiting for Phoenix to open to make the call. We might roll out and sit on the doorstep again. We'll do whatever is needed but I hope they don't have to keep it for days. We've already become quite attached to it.

HELP!!!! As we left the factory yesterday we discovered the truck/cab had no AC. The guys had already gone for the day so we rolled back to the factory this morning and they were able to fix it. However, half way back to Shipshewana, right about the time we hit 50 mph,we started getting a vibrating noise from the lower dash area. We pushed, pulled and checked what we  would could, then called the factory... and headed back again. Bobby confirmed the problem, checked everything and pulled the engine cover console thing and finally decided it was probably the engine.The Ford rep they work with said we should take it to a dealer. It seems to run fine so we are hoping to wait until we get back to Maryland.

Has anyone had a similar problem? It starts vibrating a bit then gets louder then hits its stride and stays there. Turning the radio up does not cover the noise.

About the on-board hard-wired surge suppressor/power management system -Kermit said yes, they can install them after the build BUT it is much more difficult and they would have to get up under the coach to wire it in.
