Hey, I finally get to see your solar panel. I am so jealous.

Ron, I'm pretty sure the microwave is lower when it is on the slide as it is in the 2910. This reduces the space between cook top and the bottom of the microwave though.

Kermit always brings a beautiful, new PC and welcomes one and all to check it out. His hope is to have to drive home in his tow vehicle after selling that baby. Dangerous, indeed.
349  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Frig or Surge Guard Issue? on: April 29, 2015, 09:36:44 am
We have a 30 amp Progressive Industries surge guard that is NOT hard wired. We plug it into the campground power post each time. We've spent a year and a half full time in our 2552 with lots of moves and power hook ups and never had that problem. We have tripped it several times for bad wiring at the campground or running too many electrical components. Example: air conditioner, coffee pot and microwave and POOF - no power. That scenario is called user error. I'd like to be able to say we learn from our mistakes and only did this once... but I can't.

I wonder if it could be a different model refrigerator that can't handle the delay or only tries to switch over once. Our baby is in temporary storage so I can't check which model fridge we have to compare.

Earl has spare time? In the spring when everyone wants their Phoenix right away? I think that testimonial will have to get spit out by a computer and posted on the bulletin board... or added to the web site. I hope it makes it to the bulletin board so all the factory employees can see it and know they are appreciated by the owners.

Welcome Jim and Wendy!
I'm sure you're going to love your new Phoenix. The hardest part of picking her up is arriving home. You just want to drive right past and keep adventuring. Enjoy!

When we use the TV in our 2552 John pulls his Euro chair to the center of the coach and I lounge sideways on the couch with a pillow behind me. We both can watch fairly comfortably. I recline my seat a bit and sometimes pull out the footrest on one side or the other depending on my level of "lounging" for the night.

Our TV doesn't swivel, it is the basic mount but it works fine for us.

After about a year on the road I figured out you can pull out the footrest on the couch, snap it up into position, then activate the release and roll it back in until it touches the couch seat. This gives you extra lounge space without taking so much floor space. I use it this way frequently even when not watching TV.

As added info, that transfer switch is mounted up on a block of wood. You can probably see this in some of the build photos on the web page. This prevented ours from getting wet when we got water in that corner. So if you dump you beer or are an overly enthusiastic mopper, you don't have to worry about shorting it out.

There are pros and cons either way as the bar can get in the way when using the top shelf but I like the option of having it in there. I slide our floppy sun hats between the bar and ceiling so the one side is actually in use all the time. I imagine it is better for resale also as many people want more hanging space. They can swap back to a shirt closet in minutes.

Hey Mike, I didn't realize you put in your own shelves. Something occurred to me when looking at the pics, Phoenix did our shelves because we are NOT tool guys. Ours have a little lip across the front, maybe a one inch piece of wood added on with matching cherry laminate. This can get in the way if you are putting things in and out that are as high as the shelf space but they also keep a lot of the stuff from sliding and slamming into the cabinet door on turns. Rubber shelf liner helps with that also.

A note for those trying to decide - the shelves come out so you can drop them in the bottom of the cabinet and be back to having hanging space again. The clothing bar is still in there. You can decide trip by trip which function those cabinets will serve.

Congratulations Greg, and welcome to the PC Family! You should be very comfy and happy in the 2350. Don't worry about your abbreviated training. There are video walk throughs and how-to videos both here and on the main website plus this Forum Community is awesome for giving help. Also don't worry about asking what you think are "dumb" questions. These guys have heard and helped with most of them before... I know because I asked them.

We had a very elderly cat and she adapted quickly. It's amazing how fast they realize they rule their little domain. Their human is usually within sight, responds quickly to their demands, and takes them along on most of their adventures. No more sitting home alone waited for you. Add in the doggie bonus of extra walks and lots of new friends and you should have a happy dog. Happy human, happy dog... happy trails!

Would the fact that you're is a four wheel drive make a difference? My logic says no but it has been wrong before (don't tell John I admitted to that).

We're new to rv'ing and have a 2350.  Would be interested.  Mabey a group visit to the factory in Elkhart?? 
I don't know about that factory visit. While I enjoy seeing all the awesome people there, visiting it is always a dangerous thing to do. They let you check out all the cool things they are putting in the current models - the new flooring and paint and counters and nifty water valves. I expect Kermit and Earl and Kyle would line up all the finished units then just wait and smile... and offer a nice trade in deal. SOMEBODY is bound to go home with a new baby, maybe several somebodies.

Hello Greg,
I scrolled back through your posts and don't think this subject was covered so I wanted to toss one more thing out for consideration - 4 wheel drive. Phoenix offers that option and it might be worthwhile for someone that truly wanders the back roads of our national parks and forests. We have the standard E-450 chassis and have been fine but we tow a Subaru so all our creek crossings and trips down rutted dirt roads have been in that instead of the Phoenix. I know that option would probably require a wait as there aren't that many used ones out there but it's such a thrill to have your perfect house presented to you at the end. Good luck on your search and decision making.

If we are in the area we would be interested.

Holy cow, Kyle!  (say that three times fast...  rolling on the floor )

Ahhh, Carol, you may have just doomed Kyle to a lifelong nickname. I know with the company I used to work for, nicknames stuck like glue, like them or not. We had "Love Muffin" "Fat Boy" "Beer B#@#h" and so on. I can picture Kyle arriving in the morning to be treated with "Holy cow, Kyle! What did you think of that traffic?" Followed later by "Holy cow, Kyle! That's an awesome idea" and so on throughout the day... and all the days to follow.

Since this type of playful teasing can wear on a person, I'll make an attempt to use the power of words for the good of Kyle, I'll toss in one more catch phrase for the subconscious mind to consider: "Holy cow, Kyle! You've done such a great job that you deserve a raise!"
