You're going from one well-built rig to another.  Those Road Treks are sweet!  Good luck and happy trails to both of you on the road ahead

My backpack go-to bag has cash and checkbook in it.  If needed, then I will throw in the PC, address book, purse, wi-fi with charger, and cell phone with charger.  If I know bad weather is in the area, I keep everything handy to stuff into the bag.  I also try to keep everything close to fully charged.  If something comes up unexpectedly, I'll be happy to get at least the backpack, phone, and doggy to a safer spot.

Bruce and Sharon,
Extending my deepest sympathies for your huge loss.  What a blessing that you had little Sparky to share such joy and unconditional love for the years you had with him.  May the void in your hearts gradually be filled with comforting, happy memories and the very real sense that his love will ever live on.
Carol and Dawny

Posting this a bit late because of trouble logging into the forum this past week (which Aimee and her team helped with tremendously!). 

I wanted to put something on the forum for the record regarding Phoenix's after-sales support.  I had my rig into their shop last Friday so they could take care of fixing things that went awry over the past year.  They did a fantastic job.  Bob took three hours working on everything from my house door handle/lock, which broke the previous week and needed to be replaced, to trying to diagnose an odd electrical hookup problem I've been having.  We weren't able to figure out the electrical problem (mostly because we could not replicate the problem while in the shop--things decided to behave!), but I have a workaround so it's not going to be an issue.  He also checked my roof and resealed the seams, fixed the hinge on the drop-leaf table (that is built into the bottom section of the closet behind the passenger seat), checked the plumbing, provided me with equipment and instructions on how to bypass the built-in SurgeGuard should that ever be necessary, and gave me a fresh supply of those cabinet latches that seem to only last so long.

For anyone considering buying a Phoenix, or anyone who has one but isn't aware of this, once you are out of your warranty period, the shop is happy to continue to work on your rig at a super reasonable rate ($50/hour).  I've found many RV shops easily charge double that, and do not have the same level of expertise and knowledge that we can get from Phoenix itself.

Bottom line, it's pretty great when you drive out from the factory with a lovely, quality-built RV.  It's even more awesome when you can drive back in and be treated with the kind of respect, care, and competency found at PhoenixUSA!

I'm not a 2400 owner, but will take a stab at your question about the fresh tank capacity.  It probably depends on the type of camping you do.  Lots and lots of people hook up to fresh water when they get a site, in which case, their FW tank capacity is sort of a mute point.  Personally, I always operate off of my tanks, even if W hookup is available.  For one person, my 38 gallons gets me two weeks when I act conservatively.  Then its no big deal to simply fill up the tank when I'm at a campground with water.  Hope that helps, at least a little!

Edit:  I just realized that my response may be misleading without giving you more info.  I am able to go two weeks before filling up the FW tank largely because I use campground showers and drink bottled water.  I am only using the FW tank for toilet flushes and dish washing.  So I'm using 2g or so per day (6g is in the water heater and not counted towards the 38g total).

Thanks for the tip!  While we're on the subject, does anyone know if there is anything else we should be aware of that is not turned off by the battery disconnect switch?

Can't address #1&2.
#3.  The side mirrors have been quite sufficient for me, so I've never missed having side cameras.
#4.  I think the patio light just outside the house door is a standard feature.  I didn't know Phoenix was offering the awning lights now, too.  I guess it depends what kind of camping you like to do as far as how much light you're going to want out there.

Welcome, Byron.
Between this post and your other one, it sounds like you have lots of experience already with RV'ing.  That'll give you a tremendous advantage in figuring out just what will work best for you. 
You've made a great choice in going with PC for your downsizing move.  Their willingness to make customized changes to their basic units is a tremendous advantage.
I've been in my 2351, no slide, for 20 months now and love it.
Best of luck and don't be shy with your questions and offering your own experience.

Heya Janey,
Nice to see you're enjoying the sun and fun.
Re your question, go to the main website page and scroll down to the floor plan part.  Click on the floor plan of the unit you have questions on.  The specs, including holding tank sizes, will be on that page.
Safe travels!

This is my 3rd attempt to reply so if it ends up being a repeat I apologize and will erase duplicates when I come back.
Tried to attach a photo, but it wouldn't work.  Photos of my exterior are somewhere in the photos thread (2450 non-slide).
I have a Sterling exterior (not on your list).  Simplified, but still full-body paint job.  Only one wave along the bottom and no swirlies.  Phoenix was so accommodating that they didn't even put their name on it.  I love the lighter grays in this color scheme as they don't absorb the summer sun and they do a good job of wearing the road dirt.

I mixed my interior colors.  It is Greystone (I liked that pattern and color of the fabrics) with Sterling leather (lighter than the greystone).  Very happy with it a year and a half later, living with it every day.

Hi KatLin--
Just wanted to welcome you to the forum, though I can't personally answer your question.  At least this will bump your question back up to today's date and maybe someone will come along and find it who does have an answer.  Good luck!

Depending on where you will generally be camping, the antenna that currently comes with the PC is either just fine or lacking.  Once I got used to how to find the most stations, it's not a big deal to use at all.  That said, an awful lot of camping and campgrounds are away from city life.  That's sort of the point  LOL.  So it's pretty much a crap shoot as to how many, if any, stations I pick up from one campground to the next.  There are times when I can only get PBS.  The advantage to that is fewer of my brain cells die off on those days.
As for PC considering the install of something else, they would be the best ones to ask that.  They bend over backwards on other mods, so I would guess that they'd give your ideas some serious consideration, if they could see the sense in them.
