I just completed the American Safety Council Safe Motorist Course. It is an online course that costs $14.95. It must be taken once every 3 years and it qualifies me for a discount on my RV insurance as well as my auto insurance.

The National Safety Council also has a course. I took the National Safety Council course 3 years ago but this time I took the American Safety Council course because the fee was cheaper.

I don't know if all insurance companies will issue a discount, but Geico and Hartford do.

Linda,
We have used the OTA antenna in all of our PCs and have NEVER had a problem. Once you get used to the way it works and remember to put on the booster, it's easy to use if you are in range of the tv stations.

Now if you are in the boonies, then you should have a satellite receiver like Dish. We bought a carryout unit, paid $600 and never used it. We sold it for $200 last year.

Most private campgrounds have cable. We stayed in a private campground in Maine that did not have cable, used the OTA and got Portland Maine stations--NBC< CBS<ABC as well as PBS. That's all we need,

John,
When will you be at WP Franklin? We will be there 2/18. 2/19, 2/20 leaving on the 21. Barry and Sue will be there as well. It would be cool if we were all there at the same time.

My bed sizes were wrong. The driver's side bed is 34x74, the passenger side bed was 32x74. I just got a new mattress for my side and it is now 34x74. So both beds are 34x74.

The twin beds are the same size as the twins on the 2551(i believe) 34x68 and 34x74. I'll check with George when he gets home and edit the sizes if that is not correct.

We posted pictures of what we did to the 2910 on the Forum. If you search Our 2910 Single slide, posted on 6/30/2012, you will see pictures. There is also a post New shelf in 2910 posted on 2/5/2013 and New cabinet behind driver's seat posted on 10/6/2102. If you can't find these on the Forum, PM me you Email address and I will forward them to you.

This was our 3rd PC. It took us 3 tries to get it right. We had never had a Motorhome before--actually, we had sailboats so PC's were our first MH's and Rving. Glad we found Phoenix Cruisers.

We have a Custom 2910. Twin beds in the rear with a nightstand between the beds. This nightstand has the Corian top that matches
 the Corian in the galley. We use the bottom to store our shoes and the top shelf for misc. stuff. We have storage all around the top of the bedroom area and a shirt closet on each side . The only negative is that we don't have a full wardrobe as we had in the 2551. I really miss that.
The way to close off the shower/bathroom is to open the bathroom door all the way.

We only have one slide that has the sofa, stove and microwave in it.

The blackwater tank is 23 gal. and the gray 35 gal.

We also had a cabinet built for behind the driver's seat. It is similar to the cabinet in the 3100 behind the passenger seat.

Really, the only negative is that wardrobe. Other than that, we find the rig, as we have it, suits our needs for 4 months on the road in the summer.

We use regular twin sheets and tuck them in. No problems!

Ron G. I just ordered and received a new mattress from a small company in town that does custom size . They build mattresses for boats as well as mattresses for the home and Rvs. I got to try the firmness in the shop. It was finished in 4 days. I love it. The price was $299. We only ordered one 'cause George likes his mattress.

I bet there are Co. in NH/ME that build custom mattresses.

Greg;

You said, you ran the generator but did not get power to the outlets.
 I check the microwave after starting the generator because the light will blink when the generator starts producing power. When there is no light blinking in the microwave after a minute, I know I have tripped the the generator reset on the control panel at the generator.  You may want to check the reset switch.

Ron,
We agree with everything in your comments. We could not deal with the corner bed in the 2350. The 2551 was a good unit but we wanted more room--the creature comforts during our 4 month exodus out of Florida. The 2910, for us, fits the bill. And yes, the slide is a must have!

We tow a Honda Fit--kayaks on top and assorted beach chairs, beach umbrellas etc. in the back. We have the freedom to take day trips without breaking up camp.

Now if PC built a little larger unit as you outlined, we would probably be the owners of our 4th PC!

We have our insurance with Geico. It is $635 a year. I took the National Safety Council Driving Course (on line) and received a credit on the RV insurance as well as my auto insurance. We have not had to use it so we have no experience with their claims. We have never had any extended warranty on ahything!

Welcome to the Forum Jim.

Much like you, we had never considered an RV 'til 7 years ago. We always had sailboats so we thought we would be comfortable travelling in a Class B Sprinter. Too small! Then we discovered PC's and have never looked back--2350 Sprinter, 2551 and now the 2910.

No matter which model you choose, you could not find a better RV--from the fit and finish to the after purchase customer service--PhoenixUSA is the best company that we have ever done business with.

I certainly hope your research leads you to a new Phoenix Cruiser. I doubt that you will regret it!

Last year, I found a similar issue while inspecting the roof. I posted what I found last November on the Forum.  I used Dicor which was recommended by Kermit. Dicor has instructional videos on how to clean and apply the product.

Kfrog,
We have a 2013 2910 that the factory customized at our request (twin beds, one slide and a bank of cabinets behind the driver's seat). We have been travelling in it seasonally for 4 years now. This past summer, we were in New England for four months. We have never had a problem with fitting into sites at either state or national parks with the 2910.

We love it. We have owned a 2350, a 2551 and this 2910. For us the 2910 is the best fit.
