Yes, a great group of people on this forum. I knew the answer was simple and I was missing it. When digging in the cabinet housing the RED LIGHT I discovered a note I had taped to the cable connection, but somewhere since the last use of cable, it had fallen off.  Guess I will now write the instructions on the wall plate with a felt tip.

Thank you all!

In my 2100 the panel that is stapled to the wall floats free when the couch opens/shuts to fill the gap from the wall to the mattress.  Lift it up and it allows access to the motors/wiring for the bed.  I made a custom sheet that goes on the actual couch/mattress part and then kind of a a giant pillow slip that covers the top panel. I do leave the sheets/blankets on when closed and put a nice throw over it all. We are short so length is not an issue. Not sure you can make current bed longer.

The RED LIGHT and BUTTON!!!  Of course. You people are the best. Thank you all for your help and jogging my old brain. Now the cable is working fine. We are not big TV people--OBVIOUSLY since we have not used the cable in some time. We will still be on the road when the first Presidential debates take place and wanted to be able to watch them.

Also a good idea to keep the antenna off when not in use.

Thanks again, Nicki

We are rarely in a regular RV park with cable TV. When we were in the past, plugged the cable in and it worked fine.
We are in California and have not been able to get it to work effectively. We will  get a couple channels and they are fuzzy.  Have checked all the connection we can see without removing TV or opening walls with no luck.  Decided a new cable might be the solution.  Just tried that with no luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, Nicki

My 2013 PC2100 has gray leather seats exactly like the ones in the picture Ron posted of the 2017. Over 20,000 miles and they and the front seats are holding up great. Can't imagine how you ever got the ones in your original photo.

Do what makes you comfortable. That is different for everyone. 
I saw one used PC bigger than I wanted. Don't remember specific model but design and finishes impressed me. Was really looking for a used RV (down to 3 manufacturers) when a killer deal was offered on a new custom ordered PC 2100. The original purchaser cancelled. Took the measurements and made an outline on my garage floor. Walked it for a day and bought it. My one concern was the tight space between the end of the bed (when couch is open) and table. It was solved by giving my husband who rarely gets up in the night the far side of the bed.

I was also very luck that we had very few minor problems that were quickly fixed after i returned to Colorado. Have had it for four years and only problems have been self-inflicted, not manufacturing defects.

Almost....Welcome to the Phoenix family. The few years until retirement will fly past and give you a few years to customize your rig and figure out what works best for you. ENJOY!!

When you pass through Colorado we are in Glenwood Springs--according to a Rand McNally survey, the funnest little town in America. Stop by and say hi.

I color coded all those darn keys with nail polish.  Lots on each key and a large dot by or on each lock.

I have the 2100 and have the automatic levelers.  Love them! There is a learning curve to master them. They are not meant to raise the rig off the ground to make it level (like a car jack) but rather stabilize and fine tune the leveling. We do lots of BLM and national forest camping and spots are rarely level. We sometimes have to use our leveling blocks first to get close to level and then fine tune with the automatic levelers. Even when our spot is level, we put them down to stabilize the unit and are glad for them.

Bottom line....what kind of camper will you be? Out in the wilds or usually in RV parks? Where there are crazy winds (like Utah) or where that is the exception not the rule?

Will update on use of the travel trailer cover on our 2100.
It has worked great for two winters. No scraping or other damage from wind. Easy on/off and there is a zipper that falls at the rear door. Our PC is now parked under a carport roof so cover should last much longer.

Like Gail said, some people don't like being zipped in and that would be me. I made some custom sheets. Hard to describe but will try. Have a memory foam layer (helps mask the cracks and armrest), mattress pad, and bottom sheet that kind of work together and go on like a contour sheet. Then we (husband and me) have separate top sheet and blanket. These are zipped on at the end of the bottom sheet with separating jacket zippers. I have made a cover for the "board" at the top as well. We just undo the bottom corner pockets, throw a sheet over it and fold it up leaving the sheets on. Can't use the arm rest but have not ever missed it. The pillows are stored either on top of the couch in front of the window or if the slide is in I put them up there. When it is laundry day, I just unzip, launder, rezip and put back on. The most difficult part is getting the top contour pockets over the corners. I am my own handy dandy seamstress and did do some experimenting on design. If you are not good with a sewing machine, it would be hard to find a seamstress to create custom sheets.

Like most...a combination. 
Lived in our 2100 for over a month between houses and it worked great. Once done skiing may repeat in a warmer climate during the winter.
Heading to California (from Colorado) and will do combo of daily moves and several days in one place.

I also removed the rods and just use my hands. Like everyone said, takes a little working with them, but once mastered you will be glad for them. We also use a sunshade to keep the heat out. We use one of the insulated aluminum fold up ones.
As to the Velcro problem.....Since there isn't a lot of pressure, you can quickly hand stitch on some loop Velcro without taking the curtain off.  Or, as a stop gap measure, just use a couple binder clips.

Good to know. There are times that "generic" does not cut it.
I checked my paperwork and called the shop. They assured me it was OEM and that is why it took a week to get it in.

     We had the windshield replace by our little local business. The PC has been on two trips, one with serious rain, and all is well. No leaks and no sign it has been replaced. Our one mishap is that when I was removing the magnets for our Magne Shade sunscreens, one dropped in the crack, attached to the frame and will never be retrieved. Magne Shade shipped me another ($15 includes shipping) and sticky pads to attach them.
     Thanks to all for your advice and input.
