 LOL  The construction video got interrupted by the Hershey show and the Goshen show.  Hopefully they'll get another opportunity soon to finish it up.  I think eventually they'll do ones for each model.  Fingers crossed!

You get the first view on Part 1 of the new Phoenix Construction Tour!  Days 1-6.  It's a long video, but if you get your geek on by things like this like I do, it'll be worth the watch!

Earl walks you through to day 6 of construction, as we see the transformation from bare chassis through welding, flooring, electrical, plumbing and rough walls/cabinetry.

Thank you for checking on this.  We were having the problem, but now think it was because we are located on the far edge of an RV Park with Wifi.  The connection is slow out there, so that must be why we could only connect to the main PC site but not the Forum some times.
All is good here next to the park office.

Thanks for troubleshooting this for me, Bruce!  It is probably that your computer has the main site cached in the browser, but the forum isn't cached because content on it changes daily.

We had a report that someone had trouble accessing the forum intermittently over the past few days.  The information I have was that the main site was able to be accessed, but the forum was down intermittently.  I show activity was steady and spread pretty even throughout the day during the past few days.  Did any of you have problems?

Thanks, Judi!  You're a real lifesaver!  I just forwarded your info on to them.   ThankYou

I know for a fact that Earl from Phoenix Cruiser travels with a super sweet cat that will love on you if you happen to find yourself inside his Phoenix Cruiser at a campground.  LOL

Thanks, Judi!  I passed the info along and I'll be in touch to see if any of those locations would work.  ThankYou

OK, Thank you guys for your offers of help.  The person did end up finding a used PC at a local dealer and made their purchase.  Hopefully they'll be joining us here soon once their new unit has been delivered.   Cheer

Now I'm needing:

Someone to show a unit in the Sparks, NV area.  They aren't looking to take delivery until April or May of next year, so any referral fee would be a while waiting. I believe they are most interested in a 2350 Ford.

Someone in LA, California interested in a 2910T

Someone in Omaha NE / Council Bluffs IA area interested in looking at any model.

Someone in Central Florida (think: The Villages, Ocala, Orlanda, Tampa, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Gainesville) interested in a 2100 but would be willing to look at anything. They are not looking to buy until January, so any referral fee would also be a while waiting, not that any of you have ever been concerned about the referral fee.

I was trying to hold off until I had the add-on done for the owners/referral part of the site, but they're coming in too fast for me to wait.

Let me know!

Thanks, Holly and Ron!  I'll pass the word along, and get back with you guys to let you know what is going on.

Hey, y'all!

I have a potential buyer very interested in ordering a 2350 in the next week or two, but they really need to walk through a 2350.  Are any of you in the vicinity?  He mentioned being able to travel as far as Rapid City, SD.  Anyone have a 2350 that will be in the area soon?

That is a brilliant idea, Ron!  I know you've done a ton of walkthroughs and I appreciate the insight your experience brings to the issue.

I'm concerned about the weight of the download and the use of the ink for the whole brochure, but what about this:

4 printer-friendly pages (can duplex print or not):

1. Features and Popular Options
2-3. Floorplans
4. lined for note-taking

Would that be helpful?

Holly passed this one to me because I speak Geek.

Nice job Aimee. What follows are my comments.

1. I recommend segregating PC owners from visitors. The two groups are very different. Some owners may be more willing to meet other owners than with non-owners.
2. I'm assuming the back and forth between the owner and visitor would be similar to Craigslist where both parties' e-mail addresses are anonymous.
3. All communications between the owner and visitor should remain anonymous until both parties agree to direct communication.
4. I'm not sure how hard it would be to search for owners within a certain distance of a vistors location. I'm not sure how you'd pinpoint the owner's and visitor's locations.
5. I recommend that visitors be required to submit a survey before being allowed to schedule another visit.
6. I recommend that owners be required to submit a survey before receiving a referral fee.
7. Will there be a process or procedure for removing a visitor from the list? What about an owner?
8. Will this be a separate portal from the forum?

I'd be interested in looking at the database schema for this project.

I'd also be willing to communicate with the developer. However, as a programmer myself I know programmers can be a little sensitive about other programmers sticking their noses into someone else's business.

OK.  Here are the developer's answers with my own replies mixed in (my replies are in yellow)

1. We will have the option for owners to contact other owners. We can certainly identify any contact requests as being from an existing PC owner. Would a walk thru with an existing PC owner qualify as a referral? No it would not.  It would, however, be fun. Those who are only interested in meeting up with other owners are free to continue to find one another through the forum and arrange meetings in that way.

Limiting contact requests to 'other owners only' would mean:
- marking some search results as "other PC owners only" which may be a turn off (appear exclusionary) for non-owner website visitors.
- only having the availability for "other PC owners only" appear when someone is logged in and is a verified owner (which requires them to already be a member of the website). I might be willing to revisit this in one of the next phases, but not phase 1.

2. We're currently reviewing how we're going to handle the anominimity of the owner. It may be similar to the method Craig's List uses, or through PM's with email notification similar to how some forums work.

3. It will be up to the owner when to disclose any, and how much, personal information. We will always encourage the owners to be cautious.
- The owner may chose not to disclose anything more than their first name(s).
- The owner may chose to only use the website's notification system (everything in writing).
- The owner may chose to always initiate any phone calls and use *67 before dialing.
- The owner may chose to have the walk thru take palce in a very public parking lot of a local shopping center rather than at a campground or their home.

I'm sure that the owners on the forum can come up with a list of precautions to take that I could never think of.

4. In 'Phase II' we're going to implement a zipcode based geo-location database. I don't anticipate the initial rollout having enough search results to require finer granularity. For now I think a date search is really all that will be needed. As no search will ever return more than 10-20 result, it would just be up to the visitor to see who is closest to them at any given time.

5. This would be up to Aime, but I'm all for making people fill out forms ;-) Lord, have mercy.  Is he ever all for making people fill out forms! Years ago he could ply with sweet talk such as, "but, Aime, you make such beautiful and creative forms! It would fit so nicely!"  Now I know he's just an information junkie.  This does bring up the point, however, of a visitor wanting to make the rounds across several owners, and the question of how a referral fee is dispersed in that case. My preference is that they visit with one owner. If they need more information or to see more models my preference would be for them to visit the factory.

6. This would be how the referral would be verified. The extent of the required responses would be up to Aime.

I'm all for not requiring owners to fill out forms.  We generally take the word of the person who comes in to purchase a unit.  If they tell us during their purchase that they were referred by someone, then we take their word on it. Certainly it would help to make sure that the visitor doesn't forget the owner, but I don't think it should be required. You've opened your homes and given of your time and hospitality. I do not want to then add on "paperwork" to the end of the process (but they'd be welcomed to if they wanted to)

7. Yes. We are reviewing our options regarding reporting a bad experience with either party. 

8. Yes. This will be completely separate. I don't foresee any direct link between the forum and this service (once again, to protect the owners).

The database hasn't been layed out yet, but I can provide a rough outline.

He didn't answer last sentence, so I have to assume he's off marking a tree somewhere. Wink
