I've used a few dri-wash products in the past and really liked them for both polishing and protecting the RV.  But I've hesitated to use these on our Phoenix Cruiser so far because the instructions that came from the factory regarding the Diamond Shield Protection says not to use any dri-wash product on it.  I guess I could use it on other parts of the coach (that is, most of it) and avoid using it on the Diamond Shield.   I'm afraid that I'll get careless when getting near the Diamond Shield with the dry-wash.
I'm looking forward to reading here what other Forum members have to say about this issue.

I never got that message and so far all is well and feel confident that the mh is okay.   It really shines and feels great and smooth.  It is a little late to find this out. So I will go with it..

A few years ago when I had my other motor home I attended a rally in Vermont and purchased this dri-wash product and gave it a try. Well It is the best. I have used it many times and works great.  Don't have to wash mh before and  it comes out shiny.  Don't know if members have tried it but it is call DWG Ultra-ion Dri-wash and is made by DWG International.com
  It is a little pricey but well worth it.  I did my Phoenix yesterday and the finish looks like glass.   My MH was not that soiled but it still needed it to be done.  It provides UV protection and is an outstanding product.   Just wipe on and wipe off . No need to wait after applying to wipe off.   It has an spray applicator with a pump that sprays a little at a time so you don't waste the liquid.  You can get many applications with the bottle.  No need to rub hard except to wipe off the buggies.  It does a great job. Their phone number is 800, 820-6893.  the dealer who originally sold the product to me was Terry and Pam Seamans from Factory Pa. Their pin # is 275105 but you can buy directly from the factory. They will ask you for the dealers name as I guess they get credit for the sale.   They have many other great products as well.  Just wanted to share.
Product NO. is #1641 for $32.95 for a 32Oz refill.  At first you need to purchase the kit with the special pump spray and the solution  I had to purchase the refill as I had the pump sprayer.

About 2 exits east of the Junction City, KS exit on I-70 is highway 177. Go south  on 177 about 25 miles to the Council Grove, KS ACOE Campgrounds. There are 3 entrances off 177; Richey Cove, Kit Carson Cove Park and Kansa View Park.
Have lunch or dinner at Hays House, downtown Council Grove. As best I know, there are over 20 historic landmarks in that little town. Very quaint and we liked it a lot.

You'd be smart to Google better directions.

Enjoy your adventure and be safe (there are a lot of crazies on the roads).
thanks. gathering information as the time goes by.

Recommend Army Corp of Engineer campground on the south shore of Lake Wilson Kansas.  Just 7 miles off I70 and great sites with views of lake.
thanks. I will look it up. appreciate it

Since I have never travel west before, thinking of travelling out on Interstate 70 eventually  from Pa thru the states and don't know what there is to see on the way.  Planning on coming back via I-40 to PA.  It all depends on the weather also as the best way.   How much time should I allow.  I was thinking to leaving the last week of August and taking my time.   So any suggestions from seasoned campers who might have travelled this way.

Turned on the switch for electric hot water heater and get warm water.  It work great last season.
Thanks for advice and that was the problem when it was dewinterized.  We have hot water now.  Kermit from Phoenix suggested I give that a try and so we did.  so dumb.  So many things to remember. Senior moments....

Did you have to dewinterize before this trip?

My niece had the same problem and they forgot to close the by pass valve during the dewinterizing process thus allowing cold and hot water to mix prior to coming out of the faucet thus the water was just always warm.  Once they closed the by pass valve all was back to normal - nice hot water.

Here is a diagram that shows how the valves should be positioned when using the hot water heater.  The center valve (by pass valve is closed) so only hot water is coming from the hot water heater.  On our 2012 2551 the by pass valve and other two valves are located under the three drawers in the kitchen.  You have to remove the bottom drawer to get to the valves.  Make sure the water inlet and outlet valves are open and the by pass (center valve) is closed.  When the RV is winterized the valves will be put in the opposite configuration (the inlet and outlet valves are closed and the by pass valve is open).

It sounds like the thermostat on the hot water heater is faulty.  All I can suggest is to make sure all connections that are accessed from the outside panel are tight and corrosion-free.  I think most or all connections are those push-on type.  If one is very loose, take a pliers and squeeze it slightly for a snug fit.
Called Phoenix and talked to Kermit.  When de winterized the valves were not switched over. So we have hot water.  Dahhh!

Does the heater work on LP?
kevin
yes but water never gets hot, just warm and it takes a long time.

Might also check the breaker.  Could have tripped after starting to heat the water leaving it only warm.
checked the breaker and it was not tripped.

Turned on the switch for electric hot water heater and get warm water.  It work great last season.   Is there an adjustment outside.   On my second leg of my trip on my way to Shipshewanna IN.  Going back to the old way of boiling water for needs and using campground showers.  WE stayed in the KOA in Gettysburg and it was a great camp.  All sites are level and just the right size.   WE are in KOA in Bellfonte PA and it is also a very nice camp with level sites and cement pads.  We have been spoiled in not having to level the MH.  l
 Hope to go to the factory and see if we can't solve this problem while we are near by...... Cheer

Just on my first trip out and still having problems with switching over to gas when off shore power.  Before it would switch over (last season) but as I traveled it gave an error message. now it doesn't even turn on to gas.   I will be near the factory and thought it best to make an appointment. We will be staying in Shipshewanna and Elkhart is not that far. We are traveling short distances so the food does stay cold but it is frustrating not knowing how to fix it myself.   Any suggestions.   
Thanks for the info. Also the electric hot water is giving me problems but the propane hot water works ok. Prefer the electric hot water but will use what I have. Will try to work with refer on gas again. I have senior moments and forgot to turn the switch on at the bottom of steps for refer.   Dahh!!!

Just wondering how many are going to the reunion. I still have to send in my reservation. Could not due it before the deadline.  Wish it was a little closer as I have never traveled west before.  Hope there are spaces left. We had so much fun in Petoskey.  Plan to travel back to Shipshewana Indiana in the next few weeks. Hope to attend a quilt show and meander thru the flea market. Looking forward to another camping season.

I replaced my wipers with 22" blades last season and they are fine. Since the motor home is stored in the Pole barn they do not weather.  I had 20" and replaced them with the 22". Can't remember the brand but they work fine and clear a large area.
  Looking forward to getting the MH out and getting it ready for the season.  Hooray for Spring.
