Very nice pics and informative  do they allow walk-ins at the factory????   If so might do a drop in one if in the area,,,, I like seeing that kind of stuff anyway,  I'm always amazed at how they make stuff,  anyone involved in making things you be proud of what they do or did in their life.

Ron I 100% disagree with your analysis, you must be thinking about ???,,, how could you think that the ???
 dad come it I'm so funny,,, haha,,,,   by 2cents,   we first need to ask the design guys at PC,,, I'm betting the whole piece is two parts and funnels down to where the window is.... I also bet when the make the end piece it's all one piece, they then cut the rear piece where the rear storage locker is,(would not take a bet on that one though),, door is different material...   going from memory, but are not most of the PC's the same in the rear... Now I have to look at tires for cracking, rear caps on Rv's and see how they are designed,, thks ron more jobs for me haha

Sue    well said,,, purpose of the forum is for us to DISCUSS, GIVE IDEALS, OPINIONS  to help each other,    example I have stolen many of Ron D.'s  tips and made them much better haha, just kidding,,, I take a lot of the tips, maybe copy them exact, or modify them... now when we discuss beds, size of vehicles etc, we are getting into personal preferences,,,  I like the smallest RV possible, why, wife loves to drive, easier for her, easier to drive, a little better mpg, overall cost cheaper,,,,, do I give up some things absolutely... I don't mind buying a used unit, I'm handy, do not mind fixing things,  some people are not,,,,
    Lots of people say things on the forum I do not agree to or would never do,,,, I respect their opinion, and if I want to comment,, I do not start out with I disagree,,, I state t We like to,, Or I use this method,    A lot of the questions that are asked are very good, a lot or dumb, but that's the price you pay.... Aimee does a great job moderating our forum.. I have been on some that talk politics and junk, I do a quick unsubscribe    Ron speaking of a picture,,, the dumbest thing is on the back of the PC   PHOENIXCRUISER.COM   I have had two people where I rented this unit from haha  any way have great day,,, summer drawing to an end tired of the heat.

  Ron,
    I guess someone zinged you haha,, why???? your just giving an opinion.. we also have the corner bed, yes, it is a little pain in the rear, especially when you throw in our 105lb puppy dog. Now let me say one thing when we RV we move around a lot,,from place to place.  We stay up late, get up early, so the comfort of the bed is to sleep.. .now maybe in the future when we plan some extended stops, the bed might make a difference, but I doubt it,  Heck if I wanted to sleep I just would stay home

    when I first started Rving,,, we had a roadtrek,,, I got on the RT forum and asked for a couple of guys to mentor me,, got two people who I could write directly via email and ask all the so called "dumb" newbie questions to them directly,   Most of the PC's are the same just different lengths,,  why don't you get on the forum and ask someone to mentor you.  I'm sure someone would be glad to do that,,  I will be glad to answer any questions if you want to write me via email. I do not consider myself an expert YET haha,,, but I love to help out,,, lots of people have helped me.

   BTW,  you live in Cali,,,, are you picking up at the factory??

Wow  lots of stuff,,,, and some good points,,,,   

alignment-  maybe/maybe not   you need to drive your unit to see how it handles,,, if it's    IFFY, yes then maybe all you need is an alignment... or maybe some more suspension help... again each unit is different,

break-in-- if you picking up in Indiana  I have mentioned this before,, I would stay in the area ( go visit some places, set up, pack up good practice) for a least a week go camping use everything as much as possible and be ready to drive back and get stuff fixed, nuch easier if you at the factory.

when I  got our PC   I ready nearly every message on this forum especially tips and general,,,,tons and tons of good stuff to learn

Your tips were good but very long,,, I would try and break it down more into subjects.   lots of the things you talked about are in the forum you can do a search for topics,, if you can not find an answer do not hesitate for a minute to ask,,, their are good people on this forum and we love to give out 2cents worth haha,, and do not forget all of us were newbies at one time,, some longer ago than others
welcome and congrats on your new baby

Bob
   couple questions,,,   you did say  you were on converter,,,correct,,, not inverter,,,,,,, what were the  charging level lights showing at the time this happen,,, 100%   75% ets,,,   if your levels got to low the unit may have shut down or went in another mode,        if you were on converter not sure what to do,,,   inverters sometimes get  screwy and you need to  turn off everything and hit the reset button    also are you still having the problem   hopefully some others will have some suggestions

I thought they were add-ons,,, they just did not do a good job on the arms.  It will be interesting to see if others have had the same problem,  like I said I did, never mentioned it, just fixed it.

same problem,,, using a razor blade and small piece of sandpaper,  get rid of the peeling parts very carefully to the edges where the paint is holding ok,,, carefully sand the bare spots and the edges of the good paint,,, take some acrylic touch up paint I would suggest white haha paint, in the area, let dry and do 2/3 coats,,, take a bottle of touch up clear coat and cover the newly painted area,, again 2/3 coats,,,   I f the area is large that say a silver dollar you might have to go tape and spray paint, you would then need to mask the area is you use spray paint of course if your going to use spray, go ahead and buy a primer base to spray on first,,,
   When I fixed mind I notice that the primer on the mirror arms was bad I did about 50cent size repair  has held up find.. I think these mirrors are an addition to the unit, so not made by ford
