Here are a couple of pictures with the table legs in the storage position.  We have a 2012 2551 but wanted the couch with the drawer.  The legs were a little long with this couch so we cut a couple of inches off and then pressure fitted them into the spider legs.  Works really great.

Deena,

    Once we saw the spider legs we decided they worked fine so did not go with the gate legged table.  They do collaspe and we store them either in the drawer under the couch or the floor of the closest.  If I get a chance I will post a picture of them collasped. If we did not pressure fit the poles into the spider legs they would not be as easy to use.  Now I just set the legs up and add the table top--very easy.

Deena,
   We had a couple of these personal tables from Walmart (as seen in the link) http://www.walmart.com/ip/Lifetime-Personal-Table-in-Almond/13449271.  We paid under $20 for them.  We took the legs off of one of them and installed them on the bottom of the table top.  Worked great.  With the new PC 2012 we are using the spider legs supplied by Phoenix.  They work just as good, if not better. Here is a picture of the table with the new spider legs. 

We have seem them for sale at a couple of RV stores.  What has made it work really great for us is that we pressure fitted the legs into the spider portion so they are now all one piece.  They store really nice and are very sturdy.

In the warm weather we usually turn ours on a few hours before or the night before, on electric.  If you are not plugged in and you want to use propane on the frig then the battery needs to be on.

Another thing that works to clean the tanks is to purchase some Calgon water softerner in the Grocery store.  It is sold in the detergent aisle.  We just put a capful in the black tank, fill it with water, let it sit and then rinse it out.  You would be surprised how dirty the water is at first and then crystal clear when your are done.  We also have the black tank cleaner from another trailer we had that is basically a hose with holes in it that you put down the toilet and run water.  It always did a fine job but with the sani-con we haven't had a need for it.

I had 35 feet of rope and I was always taught not to waste anything.  Also, I never want to explain why freshly washed clothes are on the ground.

Tom,

  That is what was required for our warranty issue.  The installation manuals and owners manuals are not considered "proof of purchase".  We too keep the PC-USA receipt for the RV that shows date and VIN.

Just in case you have to deal with warranty issues on the road - always carry a proof of purchase of the RV with you.  One of the igniters on our cooktop has been sticky since day one.  Yesterday it finally became inoperable so I called Atwood and the first thing they told me I needed was proof of purchase.  We've always carried ours with us so no problem but I just thought that maybe anyone new to the RV world might not think of it so hopefully this will be helpful to someone else.

Thought I'd share with you the clothes dryer I use when we are in the PC and I need to air dry my clothes.  It is shown here from amazon:

Login and you can see it set up at St. Lucie COE in Stuart Florida.  Since it is meant for mainly indoor use we either bungee it to the ground or tie it to a poll as shown in this picture.  It works great and folds up so that it can fit in either the drawer under the couch or the bottom of the closet.

Mike;

We use a Blue Ox tow bar and it works great and is easy to use.  As far as the harness goes buy a 7 pin connector for the PC and a 4 or 6 pin connector for the car plus a little cable and make your own.  If you need a diagram let me know.

Call the factory (574-266-2020) and speak with Kermit.  They may be able to do something if you are at the factory.

Hopefully this picture will answer the question as to what the spider legs look like.

We go from a picnic table to eating off of our laps to a nicely set dinner table.  Here's a pic of how we set the table tonight.  It was just too hot to eat outside at 81 degrees and the full sun shining down (lol).   Eat
