Ron,

We think you will find these reinforcement kits worth the effort, since we posted this in April http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,2087.0.html, we have traveled over 2,000 miles, on some very, very rough roads and our refrigerator door has not had any issues.

I can confirm that a locked up strut could cause the problem you described.

I had a similar problem a few years ago.  The front shocks were adjustable and due to an error on my part I had them set at different damping rates.  Under normal driving conditions this did not cause a problem but under heavy acceleration it caused the car to swerve violently to the left.  Finally checked the shocks and found the problem. After fixing the problem the car ran true and straight again.

Judi,

Have you ever been to Highlands Hammock State Park?  It is about 70 miles from WP.

Our memories are not what they used to be so we use checklists to make sure we don't forget to do something before we leave a camp site.  Here is one of our checklists on the inside of a cabinet door.  It is out of sight when not needed but we know right where to find it.

I had the same problem Bruce had but my faucet handle did not have an access cap.  I spent several days trying to find some reference on how to remove the handle.  Today, I called the factory and spoke to Kermit and within 5 minutes I had my answer.  PC uses two styles of handles those with and those without an access cap.  

When there is no access cap the handle assemble is made up of 2 pieces, a base and a handle.  The round handle ( parallel to counter top) is screwed into the faucet and holds the base in place.  

Here are the steps I used to lubricate the squeaking stem in the hot water bathroom faucet:

1.  Unscrew handle and remove

2. Remove base

3. Remove screw from top of stem assemble

4.  Remove handle attachment point

5.  Remove large nut

6. Remove stem assemble from valve

7.  Pull stem assemble apart to gain access to stem

8.  Lubricate stem

9.  Push stem assemble together

10. Reassemble faucet

John,

   Yeah!!!!  Congrats.  Did you get site 8?  I say that since it is the only site that was taken for two weeks today.   Very, very nice site.

    We leave WP 1/26 so will not see you.  Hope to be back there at the end of Feb.

    Enjoy

Bruce,

Ours doesn't have a cap like yours.  But I think I found a good you tube video on how you can fix yours.  Check this out https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=08QFK2dGrgg

Hope it will solve your problem.

I have the same problems and need some help.

I do not see a cap.  How did you get the handle off, really don't want to break anything.

Janey,

WP is WP Franklin, the COE park in Alva, FL.  Very nice, with 30 sites, water and electric.

John,

Yes, we do it online.  I use the clock on my Verizon phone.  Sometimes we get in, sometimes we do not.  It all depends on how many people are going for the sites.  Also, at WP go for the higher number sites.  People tend to like the lower number sites especially sites  7 - 11, so we tend to go for sites in the 20s.

Remember, look for cancellations, especially as it gets closer to the date.

I just got 8 days at Highlands Hammock state park for the end of January.  Someone must have cancelled.  It is about 70 miles north of WP.

Prayer and Luck.

We usually get in but not always the dates we want.  You need to be diligent and try everyday.  The other thing to do is look everyday for cancellations.  We have friends that do not make reservations and somehow always find a site.  Also, you cannot get in if calling the call center because the sites are gone so fast.

We are booked for 14 days beginning 1/12.  Hope to see you there.  If you're in the area stop by.

Don

Thanks for a simple and accurate explanation of the A/C noise issue.  There is a work around for the Dometic thermostat AUTOFAN issue.  In AUTOFAN mode the fan will cycle on and off and when it is on  it will remain on low speed if the set temperature is within 4 of the room temperature.

Bob,

You are not the only one to forget about that switch.  I have told Barry a few times that the light in the ceiling in front of the microwave is not working and he just reminds me that this light is controlled by the switch at the entry door. 

Our 2008 did not have this so I always left a light on when we were going to return to the RV late at night.  What I do like about this switch is I do not have to leave a light on and now just open the door and flip that switch and I can now see to enter the RV without tripping on anything.  A nice feature added by PC.

Mike,

  Yes, the standard PC AC has the front and rear fins that can be adjusted left/right and up/down.  The fins are separated in half on both the front and rear so you can adjust the left/right  sides of the coach separately. Or you can close off a section if you so desire.
