We just completed an RV caravan down the Great River Road: from southern Ohio to Bemidji, Minnesota to New Orleans, back to Ohio via the Natchez Trace, 3600 miles.  Didnt see another PC.  However, one campground owner, seeing all of the caravan RVs parked in a row, said Youve got the best rig here.  Pic on the Natchez Trace attached.

We noticed the indentations too.  While at the factory, they cut some 8 x 8 Plexiglas squares that we use.  Theyre 1/8 thick.

The mattresses in our 2011 are much better than in our 2008 but still a little too firm for us. We bought Twin Down Alternative Mattress Toppers: http://www.finewebstores.com/Twin-Down-Alternative-Mattress-Topper-Approximately-5-Inches-Thick_p_26098.html#

$120 each. They are very comfortable.  Like a pillow, though, they have to fluffed occasionally.  And at 39 inches wide x 75 inches, they fit perfectly.

Aime, I changed our location to our specific city.  Would be glad to show our 3100.

An air compressor is handy.  On an Alaska trip, we stayed overnight in a large gas station parking area (miles from any campground).  Start out next morning: thump, thump, thump.  After two flat tires and now a third one!  But careful inspection showed no flat tire.  Started off a second time and again: thump, thump, thump.  Doing a real detailed inspection revealed a fist-sized rock between the drivers side duals.  A nearby trucker came over with a very large crowbar.  The rock wouldnt budge.  Solution: let the air out of one tire, remove the rock, fire up the generator, plug in the air pump, pump up the tire, and on our way.

I bought a Class C cover, the size recommended by Camping World for my previous 29ft PC.  It looked like my overcoat on my 10 year-old grandson.  Went with it anyway, strapping it down as tightly as possible.  After a very windy storm, it was torn and basically useless.  Fortunately, Camping World took it back for a full refund.  If you really want one, Id special order it.

I went to the doctor because my wife said I had water on the knee.  The doctor said my aim was bad.
128  Main Forum / General Discussion / funkified on: June 05, 2012, 04:15:56 pm
Just got an e-mail from Phoenix Cruiser with links to inventory, appearances and the Good Sam Louisville Rally, etc.  It starts off with the phrase: Something look funkified in this email? View it on the web.  I had never have seen that word finkified, so  I looked it up.  Google has never heard of it either.  Actually the word sounds like something my wife would say; she makes up words to suit the occasion.  Shes from Kentucky.  Seems like Aimes from Kentucky also and does the advertising for PC.  If so, must be a Kentucky girl thing.  Grin

No problem in our 3100, but never really thought much about it.  However we always have the two interior doors open accept in the morning.  The bathroom door can only be in the open position when travelling in the 3100 (unless someone locks themselves in!).  You can see from the exterior picture that the AC is centered over the coach area.

At a PC owners club rally, the couple next door spent winters in Texas on the Rio Grande.  They had two ACs installed in their 3100 with 50 amp.  Dont know if that was really necessary.  He seemed a little obsessive and had many, many other changes built in.  shrug

Yes, the AC noise can be a problem at times.  We overcome it by running the TV sound through the surround sound system.  Wont help with the conversation, but with five speakers running, the TV is much easier to hear.

My daughter got upset with this problem with guests when she hosted a party. So she put up a sign above the commode.  Dont know if it helped.  The sign was something like this:

So glad that helped.  Arent I smart? Embarrassed Well, not really.  I had the same problem and The Grand Poobah (Kermit) clued me in.  Great to have this forum to share problems small and big that can be solved.

We have taken three tours through Mexico with Adventure Caravans. We liked the flat car tour so much. We then took the top and bottom copper canyon tour and I think it was even better.  That was in 2009. Felt very safe.   Very good trips

Thanks for the info on the tours.  We too like Adventure Caravans.  The PC makes a great RV to caravan in.  We were at the Spring Mega Rally in Washington D.C. this year.  At the rallies, they have the wagon masters give a PowerPoint travel log on 18 to 20 of their trips.  Mexico was one of them.  Id really like to go, but I dont think I can convince my travel partner.  I was hoping to get some testimonials to gradually change her mind.  We were already signed up for the 32 Day Great River Road and Fall Colors, 9/25/12: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=32USMIS2012977.

At the rallies they give discounts on any trip and some really good discounts on select trips. We signed up for two more:
41 Day Southern Exposure, 2/28/13: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=41USSE2012979, and the
49 Day Atlantic Provinces, 07/13/13 http://www.adventurecaravans.com/canada/avc_canada_tours.asp?TCC=49CN2012965

Weve been to many of these places, but the caravans are really great.  All the camping reservations are already made, the pace is mostly leisurely, you see places (especially events) you wouldnt necessarily choose on your own (always great), and do and see things you wouldnt even know to do.  Itd be great to have another PC along on one or more these trips

Hopefully Ill eventually wear down my wife at least maybe if only the Baja trip.

On this thread of maps and where youve been, theres a place I always wanted to go but never made it, Mexico.  We were signed up for the railroad flat car tour through the Cooper Canyon several years ago, but had to cancel.  Now they dont run it any more at all.  My wife now refuses due to the violence wont even go to southern Texas.  I know tour companies are still running caravans to Mexico.  Anyone been there recently, any experience?

DJM, yep, went to Castaway Cay on a Disney Cruise.  As you obviously know, its Disneys private island just for their cruise line.  Its great and didnt really get to spend all the time there we would have liked to.  Took the grandkids one of our best trips.  And they still talk about the trip and want to see the pictures over and over.  ThumbsUp
