511  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Travelling With Cats on: May 11, 2010, 01:51:25 pm
I have transported many cats for rescue groups on multi-day trips across the country. If you crate them for travel, you can use a disposable 8x8 aluminum baking pan for litter.  I prefer feline pine--put in just enough to cover the bottom completely, and either toss the sawdust at stops, or toss and replace the whole baking pan if needed. If you aren't crating, I would recommend a litter pan in the shower, and locking the cats in the bathroom during travel. If you put their normal bed in the bathroom, they probably won't mind curling up and napping the trip away.

I do not have experience with cats and the electric sofa or slide, so I will defer to others on that issue.

Happy Traveling!

If you had one feature of your cruiser that you love, but isn't advertised on the site or in the brochure, what would it be?
I'm working on the brochure, and I'd love to try to work in real-world comments or experience.

So what's the feature you love, but you have to explain to people yourself because it isn't available in the literature?

Thanks, Ron and everyone.

I really appreciate the feedback. I love the idea of previous years' info, and I'm going to see if I can get that info to put on the main site after we finish up the new brochure this week.

I also love the idea of a 'Kermit's Corner' or something along those lines, and I'm going to try to get that approved as well.

Obviously, I don't have any deciding vote on implementing a feature like that, but I am going to make an attempt to convince them.

As for my personal tastes, and the main site, well...I won't say it fits my tastes, or my previous knowledge about marketing, but I will say that it has definitely worked here, and I have had to eat my words more than once because the excellent team at Phoenix clearly knew their market better than I did.  Angry   LOL

Cheers!

I tend to agree with Ron that all the fancy pictures are a pain and a distraction from the real info. 
In spite of that, I would like to have an easier way to post pictures like Ron and I were doing about a year ago.
Is there an easy way to search for items?  I remember a posting about the inverters running down the battery about a year ago but I wouldn't want to try to find it now - afraid it would take too long.


The process for posting pictures is industry standard, and has not changed on this forum. Unfortunately, there is no easier way to post pictures to the internet than either linking to them or uploading them. If it was easier last year when you did it, can you please let me know what has changed?

You have made 11 posts in the year that you've been with us.  You can see them all by clicking on your username next to any post of yours, and selecting the option to see recent posts. That's the same for reading anyone's posts. I love this feature. Smile

Also, there is quite a sophisticated search feature that can be accessed by clicking 'search' above. You can search by keyword, subject line, username, etc. Can you let me know what problems you encountered when trying to search? I did a search on inverter, and in less than 5 seconds, had a page of results sorted by topic. You can narrow it down by user/poster too if you know who posted it.

Hope this helps.

As far as the marketing ends of things, without getting into any specifics, I will just say that although the design is not my aesthetic (any of you who've visited the main street faces site can see it doesn't look like anything else I've ever done), I cannot argue with the results of listening to the client (Phoenix) and producing something for the RV market.  To say that people's positive response has increased significantly would be a gross understatement.  As mind boggling as it is, the stats tell the story, and it's been such a dramatic (over 100x) increase in activity that I am fairly confident we will not be seeing any "tone-down" of things beyond what I did back in the Fall.

What I would like to know from you all are:

Features you would like to see added to the site
Features you would like to see added to the forum
Features you would not like to see be lost in any changes

I have been vying for a "Kermit's Corner" kind of thing since we started the forum. I'm glad to see others have an interest in that as well. No promises, but we'll see what we can do.

the "notify" button will allow you to be notified according to the settings you select---category, new topic, reply to that topic, etc.

These are great suggestions!  Keep them coming!  Right now I'm working on a couple of projects, so I'll probably keep taking suggestions here until the end of April at least.

OK, those are both very good points.  I'd love to have a rep from the company hang out and answer questions sometimes.  I can't answer any of those types of questions.  If anyone has suggestions for more information you'd like to see on the actual site, and not just the forums. Go ahead and include them here. I maintain the site too, so this is your chance to have my ear!    Cheers

I'm going to be updating the forum over the next few weeks, and I'd like to get some input from those of you who use it.

So here's your chance to let me know what you think.

Are there any new categories you'd like to see?

Will you be heartbroken if we change the colors/freshen it up a bit from time to time?

Is there anything you don't want changed?

I can't promise that I can implement everyone's suggestions, but I would like to hear from those who use the forum before I change anything.

I love hearing happy pick-up stories. Smile

I hope the trip home is a great one!

;)When you have a problem with you Phoenix regardless if you are in or out of warranty you should call Kermit at the plant.  574-266-2020.  He knows more about anything on these motor homes than anybody else including most of the time the people that manufacture the parts.  If he cant help you on the spot he will be the first to tell you.  (probably will never happen as if he does not have the answer he probably wont sleep until he does).
   

exactly!

I'll just repeat what he said.  I absolutely understand the inclination to try to solve the problem yourself with the manufacturer of the item, but I've found that Kermit is so knowledgeable and willing to find solutions, that I have never heard someone say they weren't glad they called him.

 ThumbsUp What a relief!  Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us.

I'm so sorry to hear that Aerobed gave you such poor customer service.     I'm going to forward this on to some people at Phoenix and I'll see what I can find out.

Thanks so much for letting us know!
