The shades are not opaque.  That would defeat being able to see out during the day.  With lights on low, you can see shapes from outside at night but no detail, more clearly if well lighted inside.  We close the front curtains at night.  Only takes a minute to close them.

Never a problem and we have had them on months at a time.

We store the shades and the inside sun screen under the sofa.  See pic.

We have the shades.  Heres the PC link with pics shown on our PC:  We like the shades a lot, especially when staying in Florida for several weeks.  They will make a dramatic difference in the inside temperature, especially in the cab area.  The rain wont bother them, but if we are leaving the next day and rain is forecasted, I just remove them the day before so I dont have to deal with putting them away wet.

Unfortunately, we have to store our PC outside.  I hate those wrap around windshield covers they crack, yellow and even tore once in a high wind.  Now I use the side shades on the inside when storing.  They will work with a little coaxing. Then just use this inside the windshield:  Easier than putting on and taking off that wrap around windshield cover.

Then I use foam pipe insulation to protect the wipers, just cut to length:

Easy-peazy.  Grin

Classact (really like that name), I have previously posted pictures:,839.msg5912.html#msg5912.  With the slide in, theres maybe 18 between the chair and sofa, fine when traveling.  Also note the picture of my little side table which is great.

Everyone has their favorite floor plan.  Were certainly happy with the 3100.  We previously had a 29 model with a sofa but no dinette.  The 3100 has both.  And the wall of cabinets behind the passenger seat holds a ton of stuff.  Someone commented they couldnt have a recliner because of those cabinets, but we do.  Works fine.  We bought a Euro chair, but use the swiveled passenger seat as the footrest.  Now in the evenings, I can recline and read or watch TV while my wife naps on the sofa.  LOL  And the full width bathroom in the back is great.

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:

$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.

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
