Patricia,

Keep playing with those curtains, they will get easier.  I also took the plastic rods off and just pull each side by holding onto the curtain.

The EMS is designed to monitor the incoming voltage and protect the electric devices within the PC.  The transfer switch is just a relay that operates when the generator is running and does not require any type of protection.

Here is a link to the Transfer Switch Operation Manual: http://progressivedyn.com/pdfs/110538A-English.pdf

The installation can easily be done after the fact.  The 10AWG wire is stiff but is manageable.

That is the great thing about Phoenix Cruiser.  You can negotiate with them on anything.  They will do their best to please you.  If they can't do it they will tell you.

We met a PC owner recently and they wanted full body paint without any swirls or swashes and that's what they got.  It also did not have any name on the cap.  So don't be afraid to ask.

I don't sew....although, I guess you could sew a few hook tabs by hand down one of the strips

You could check with a local tailor.  This would be a two minute job and they might do it very cheap.

Henry,

I actually moved the plastic straps to the bottom of the curtains.  There is a screw there just like in the center.  It is much easier to reclose them with the plastic straps at the bottom.  I also sewed in an extra piece of curtain since our seats both rotate and I wanted to use the seats at night with the curtains closed.  Even with that extra piece of curtain it is still easy to reclose with the plastic straps. 

I also like the way they look with the straps at the bottom.  It keeps them very neat from top to bottom.

The EMS can be installed before the transfer switch (monitors only shore power) or after the transfer switch (monitors shore power and generator power).  I installed after the transfer switch so that both shore and generator power are monitored.

I did not like the constant flashing light so I mounted the monitor under the passenger bed.  I need to lift just the corner of my mattress to see the monitor but it is no big deal.  I am thinking about moving the monitor to the inside of the cabinet below the sink but it has not gone beyond the thinking stage.

I have taken our curtains off and worked on them.  I would remove one side and sew some new Velcro on them.  The curtains are very easy to remove and put back up and many stores sell the same Velcro that was originally used.

Here are the links to two previous postings on the P.I. EMS:

In our 2012 2551 I mounted our EMS under the passenger bed and connected it to the input of the breaker panel.  This is after the transfer switch.

We had the same type of leak in our upper cabinet in our slide.  What we found to be the cause was some missing sealant in one corner of the slide out roof.  The fix was to recaulk that area with self leveling sealant.  It's been four years and no leak.

When I saw your post the first thing that came to mind was a hair dryer might create enough heat to make the glue pliable enough to move the cover back into place.  I have used a hair dryer several times to loosen epoxy and some types of construction glues.  Might be worth a try.

Have you talked to your local post office?  They may be wiling to hold it for you longer then the 30 days.  Fortunately my sister lives on the same block as we do so she takes in our mail.  I too feel it is an imposition and talked to our mail carrier.  He told me to fill out more then one mail hold and he would submit it for us every 30 days.  I haven't tried that yet and would feel more comfortable talking to the local post master and see how they could accommodate us.

We are gone three months at a time and I do not miss any bills.  Those that need to be paid via US Mail (because I can't trust auto payment with them) I generally make copies of a prior statement, address envelopes, call them for the current amount and then mail as necessary.

Rosy,

Our units were a 2008 and 2012.  Neither had the upholstery stapled to the slide out wall.  I would call the factory and ask them what the purpose was.  They should be able to tell you if it was just for looks or it had some structural purpose.  I'm wondering if it was just to fill in the gap between the wall and couch when the couch is opened for a bed.
