Good luck with the repair, but if I turns out to be something else please let us all know.

We had the same issue with our 2552 right after taking delivery.  I spoke to Kermit and he said they had received a batch of bad inlet valves and sent us a new one right off. As you may have determined its filling the fresh water tank and once full draining out the overflow.  On our 2552 it's a fairly easy replacement through the storage compartment under the driver side bed. As I recall on on our 2350 access to the valve assembly would require taking out the vanity shelves.

Hi Barb,
Not a direct answer to your question but our 2350 like yours also lacked an aux plug.  We enjoy audiobooks while traveling so purchased a wireless blue tooth speaker which we could use with our iPad.  We found both the sound quality and volume met our needs.

I have a telescoping windshield cleaning pole that I purchased at our local RV dealer , one of the brushes that it came with has a plastic  sponge type surface that a microfiber cloth sticks to very well. With this I am able to reach all the upper areas for cleaning and its sturdy enough that it does a very good job.  I haven't tried it for waxing  yet. On our 2350 I used the belly method of hanging over the top to wax, not sure iam still up to that. Read on a forum someplace, maybe here, about using a youngster, hold his feet  and give them a rag and can of wax. My grandson would be up for it, but my daughter would probably never leave me alone with him again.

We have Direct TV and take our receiver from home for use in the PC.  As Tom said you lose your local programing when traveling.  We generally stay in one place for a week or so, once set up we call Direct  TV, customer service and provide our location to receive the local programing. This past winter I think we called 4 or 5 times. Depending on the techs experience level they may not know what your talking about so you may have to push them to ask for help. One time this winter I called to change and they apologized, thinking I was having a technical issue and gave me 3 months of HBO free for the inconvience. Surprisingly they don't charge for the location changes.
We use a carry out dish and not all of there receivers are compatible with it, I don't know if this is an issue with the fixed dishes.
Almost forgot there are setting changes that you have to make to the receiver, this is done both when you take the dish out to be used with the portable and when it's returned to the house.  Customer service walked me through the steps which are straight forward.

George,
I will have the wire and fuse on hand when we see you in August.

We have towed our 2014 CRV for 10000 plus miles and haven't noticed any handling issues. 
As discussed in an earlier posting we have run the battery down several times, particularly
when towing for more than one day. I have installed a trickle charger under the hood and now plug it in over night when we will be towing on multille days. The "Toad Charger" device looks like it's worth pursuing.

In addition to the good suggestions above you will want to check that the appropriate systems work on the different power sources, i.e., generator, battery and shore power, both inside and out.  Check all external lights and the outlets.  Having been on the forum for several years and reading it religiously I was aware of issues others had had with new units, such as mounting issues with the TV and bathroom door. A great resource for what to look for if you haven't already.
On ours which we have had for 4 months we have had a problem with the water distribution valves and the frig is not automatically switching from electric to gas. I do some wood working and have an issue with the way some of detailing has been finished off, specifically inside closet doors, which I need to address this summer.
Considering the number of systems involved and the countless vendors who are furnishing your new unit its to PC's credit that we we encounter so few issues.
Good luck and enjoy

Adding to what Paul mentioned about the sourcing of materials, we have noted a few things we feel we're of a better grade on our 2012 PC then on our  new 2016.   They are minor, at least we hope, but the improvements made over the years more than make up for these changes.  One of the things we picked up right off is the rear ladder and roof rack are not as substantial as previously installed, so Ron the one in your basement maybe increasing in value.

We've had our new PC for 3 months now and have been living in it since pick up, so it got a fast break in. The only significant issue so far is with the water distribution box, the new type. One morning I found water running out the overflow hole while hooked up to city water. Called and talked to Kermit who said they had a bad batch and immediately sent a new one. Incidentally any one with this style might want to check the vent hole in it as mine is open to the inside, nice bug entry,, the actual vent is on the drivers side.
Other than that were good.

We also depend on Allstays.  We also find " Inroute" great for time and distant planning.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Your correct about not being able to connect directly to the cable hookup.  Winegard sells an adaptor for doing it, but it's pricey. I looked quickly the other day for some knockouts under the hood without success, am heading off now to do that and will begin to pursue your other suggestions.

Used the awning lights last night and in my opinion they provide plenty of lighting.  They are LED's and run the entire length of the awning on the inboard side.
We traded our 2350 for a unit already completed and have a couple of small things we would have done differently, one is exterior covers for the vents which we missed immediately and will install when we get back home. The other thing is wiring for our satellite dish. We have a carry out one and have to run the cable through the passenger window which is less than desirable. Still working on just how to devise a better system.

We have the new awning lights and I have only turned them on to make sure they work, my first impression was that they provide nice lighting.  Will give them another try tonight and report back.

Phoenix Crusiers appear to be active and on the move in central Florida. Since heading south just after Christmas we have seen at least 5 including 3 today at Hillsborough River state park near Tampa.  We have also been fortunate this winter to meet Sue and Barry as well as George and Judi.
Phoenix ownership has opened up immediate conversations and friendships, even if I can't always remember the names of those we've met.  These encounters have been great in the sharing of ideas and knowledge and generating a to do list when we return home this spring.
