Welcome Jim, Winnie, and Puppy!
... and pardon the dumb question, but what exactly is an "apple head chihuahua?"  Some kind of fancy breed or just a fancy name for a special girl?   Grin

Just make sure your tailgate party doesn't get too wild up there ...  Cheers

Welcome Tom and Linda--
I have a different rig than the one you are looking at so can't address #1, but re the leveling jacks I personally find them well worth the cost.  I love the simplicity of setting up camp with them and I use them often.  Re Elkhart, you'd be best off calling them directly and talking to Earl re accommodations for test drives.  They don't have a showroom, per se, but there are lots of rigs around in various states of construction, including some that are finished and I presume as yet unsold.  Also, you could put out word on the forum that you would like to see any PCs that happen to be in your vicinity and forum members who are willing to show theirs will contact you.  Good luck in your search!

Hi Debra, and welcome!
I have a 2351, basically the same coach, just a foot longer.
I weathered several nights in the 20s before coming south, and here are the things that helped me get through:

-- I set my furnace thermostat to 65, though I know many people set theirs as low as 50.
-- Leave the bathroom cabinet open and the bathroom door cracked so that the furnace will heat the pipes leading to your outside shower, which is definitely a vulnerable point.
-- Crack open your kitchen sink cabinet so that heat can filter back to those pipes, too.
-- Anytime it is going to be 32 or below, be sure your water heater is on.
-- Be sure there is at least a few gallons in your gray and black tanks, and if you have the heating pads, turn them on.  If you don't have heating pads, pour some antifreeze down there.
-- If you have a macerator, put some antifreeze in the gray tank then run the macerator just a little bit to get some of the antifreeze mixture in there.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure others can offer more.  It's a start.  Good luck!

Very nice!  I'll have to look that one up before I leave FL in the springtime.

Condensation would be a bummer but sure would beat a leak.  I think I read on another posting thread that those overhead cabinets are not insulated.  Maybe you can test the condensation theory by keeping them cracked at night so some of the house heat can get in there... or would that make it worse?  Either way, it might help with an answer.

Congratulations Betty and Dave!  The wait is the hardest part, but I'm sure it will be well worth it when you get the delivery.  Looking forward to your expertise here, especially from the full-timer angle.  I'm really impressed that you are switching things up to kick yourself out of a "rut" and back onto the open road.  What fun!

I've been dealing with a persistent small leak for a few months now and basically Kermit has approved me having local repair people look at it and try to deal with the situation (from Virginia to Florida).  He also approved work on any water damage that may exist, if the repair facility is confident that it can do it, or I can bring it back to Elkhart in the Spring for them to look at it.  Since the rig is still under a year old, I am being reimbursed for the work as under warranty.  I guess with new rigs (and of course aging ones) something is bound to come up now and then.  I find it comforting that Phoenix Cruiser will work with the customer to get satisfaction.

Apologies if this doesn't apply to someone who isn't exactly a snowbird (since I am full timing), but just slightly flighty. 

1.  Travel from wherever I was just before it gets too cold to stay there
2.  Florida this year
3.  Dec, Jan, Feb
4.  This is the first year
5.  If I come back here next year I will, and they are very nice
6.  Heck no!  I hear you can barely walk outside here in the summer!

I've been dealing with a leak issue for a few months now and it has been at the connections for the shower faucets.  In the 2350/2351, there is a small panel on the back of the shower wall and next to the bed, making it somewhat accessible, although to do any work on it, the mattress and board underneath has to be removed.  Not sure what your model is like but I'm sure others more familiar can direct you if there is an easy way to get to those connections.  I'd say it sure is worth looking for.  I've had the connections back there tightened up three times now, and it seems that they just keep jiggling loose again after driving a bit.  Two repairmen have been involved so far, and both have commented that the setup seems awkward, with more connections than should be necessary.  Taking it in again in a couple of weeks, and they may rebuild the plumbing in that area to simplify it and hopefully fix the issue once and for all.  Good luck and I hope you find your answer soon.  Leaks are a pain!

Thanks Bruce & Sharon.  I will buckle down, use your suggestions, and see if I can fix this for 2015 (my New Year's resolution!)
