I believe they will fit your existing table but a call to the factory to verify is your best bet.

Tom,

   Again Phoenix aims to please its customers.  Many were ordering their PCs without the floor plugs and making up legs for the table (such as we did in 08).  Phoenix now provides the same table and legs but instead of the floor plugs they give you two spider legs.  They are are a fold up type pedastal.  Works really nice.

For those that want a ready made tire guage (a little less accurate) try this website as a start.  Look under TIRE GAUGE FAQ for TIRE GAUGE ACCURACY.  They claim Accu-gage used ANSI grade B pressure gauges.  I would make a call to ACCU-Gage before I ordered.

Here is a list of the piece parts required to make an accurate tire gauge.  I found the pressure gauge on the internet as an example.  Not sure of the company but the quality looks good.  The hose, air chuck and hose clamps can be found at any hardware store.  Pressure gauge and air chuck each have 1/4 inch NPT connections.

Connect with a length of 1/4 inch ID hose and secure with the hose clamps.  You now have an accurate  tire gauge for less than $30.

Just to clarify things a little.  I didn't buy a tire gauge.  I bought an ANSI graded PRESSURE gauge and made a DIY tire gauge.

We have found that the "AERO" bed air mattress is very comfortable.  We tried the air mattress in the  2010 model and it does not compare to an "AERO" bed.  With one of our previous travel trailers we used the AERO bed for five years (2 months at a time).  No complaints about the bed.  We now use it at home when we have guest and they all say how comfortable it is.  You can find good deals on these. We still have the original queen one we bought about 15 years ago.  The full size one we used for five years gave out after continuous use in the trailer and we replaced it with a clearance model for $25 and it is still going strong after 4 years.

We found the couch in the 2010 model very comfortable compared to the electric couch in the 2008 model.  We have sat in the couch in the 2012 model and it is comfortable and very nice but the seat is a little deep for a smaller person.

Tire pressure gauges have one guarantee, no two will read the same.  I needed to have accurate tire pressure in the slicks on my race car so I bought an ANSI Grade A air pressure gauge added a little hose and a connector to attach to the value stem.  This gave me a tire pressure gauge with a midrange accuracy of +/- 1%.  At 10-12 pounds that gave me an accuracy of + or - .1 pound.  You can save a little money by using a Grade B which has a midrange accuracy of +/- 2%.

We've stayed at the Elkhart Campground.  It is just about 10 minutes from the factory so very convienient.  Nice place but water is rusty.  So if you go fill your tanks at home.  Met two other PC owners when we were there.


We've also stayed about 30 minutes away at the Shipshewana South Campground.  Nice place as well and just a 1/2 mile from the flea market.  Water was much better.

I contacted Koni about FSD shocks for the E450 Chassis and according to their representative , "Koni does not have a FSD shock for the Ford E450 but the adjustable shock works just as well".

My understanding is that you only have a few seconds before you burn out the heating element with an empty tank.  This information came from a dealer when we bought our first travel trailer.

I always turn the water heater off at the circuit breaker before I drain the tank for the winter.  Also, I always confirm the breaker label and mark it in red when I get a new RV.

Don't need a senior moment when I'm de-winterizing on the road.

Johnny;

Depending upon the size and weight of your enclosed trailer and motorcycle the Sprinter chassis may have some towing and axle limitations.   A fully loaded Sprinter (GVWR of 11,030 pounds) has a maximum towing capability of 4,220 pounds.  The rear axle has a rating of 7,720 pounds but I'm not sure exactly how the added tongue weight is going the affect the loading of the rear axle.  These represent maximum numbers  and have no margin for error or safety.
Best bet is to contact the PC factory and get their input.  They are very helpful and well informed.
