We have a 2013 2910 (custom with twin beds) and one slide (with the sofa in it). Since new, we have left FL in June and returned home in Sept. so 3 1/2 to 4 months living in it with no issues. This year, we have reserved a seasonal site in Maine. The CG opens in May and closes Columbus Day so we have the opportunity to spend 5 months in it--we shall see!

We had Phoenix put some insulation under the floor in the cab to reduce the heat but that is all we have done.

Others have added new shocks, sway bars etc, We have not added anything.

Our Ford dealer has taken care of a few things but they don't have lift capable of lifting the PC so I guess if it came to that we would have to take it to a Ford Truck dealership for work, So far we haven't had to do that.

Oh year, I forgot--Welcome to the Forum

That is really nice. I like that better than the cabinet that we put in. It looks as if it has more storage. We bring a collapsible hassock with us to store stuff behind the driver's seat.

Might have to get George to redo our cabinet before we head to Maine for 5 months this coming summer.

We have had a 2350, 2552 and now we have a 2910 with twin beds (custom because we wanted the 2910 but wanted twin beds). I agree with Barry and Sue on every point. I see that you are interested in the 2910 so I will direct my comments to that model:
We had Phoenix install a beveled mirror behind the sink. It is much easier to wipe the mirror off than having to deal with water spots on the wood surface that is standard behind the sink. The mirror also opens up the living area to give it a larger appearance.
We also had them build a cabinet (like the one in the 3100) behind the driver's seat. Because of that cabinet, we are not able to recline the driver's seat but we never did that anyway. We would rather have a little more storage.
I do not like the new full body paint schematic either. Our 2013 2910 has the same paint as both of our other PCs. They will do whatever you want within reason. If we were to order another, we would still have the same full body paint schematic.
We have posted pics of our 2910 on the Forum. If you are interested, just search our postings from 2012. If you can't find them, let me know and I will send you some pictures of what we did.

Our thoughts and prayers will be with you and all of the others on the East Coast. We rode out Hurricane Charley in the house in 2004 Cat 3 and NOT FUN!

We have reservations at Sebastian Inlet SP on 10/23 for 5 days. That might not happen!

If you need to evacuate, our driveway will be available for you guys and the PC. We are in a Tropical Storm Watch here in Punta Gorda. Take care.

Have you been evacuated?

Ron, Best wishes from us as well. We enjoyed reading your comments on the Forum.

We love our PC; however, there are times when we are looking at other options. Next summer we have made seasonal reservations at Gray Homestead on Southport Island Maine (Boothbay Harbor area). The season is from May 15 to Oct 15 (we won't stay there that long). I hope that our 2910 will continue to be comfortable for a longer period of time. If not, then we will have to explore other options--although, would hate to leave the Phoenix family.

As you said "life changes".

We took the auto road to the top of Mt. Washington last month (in the Fit). It's a 45 minute ascent--8 miles with many turns and No guard rails! Once at the summit, the views are incredible.

The road is privately owned. The fee is $29 for car and driver and $9 for each additional person. At the summit is the Mt. Washington State Park and the Mt. Washington Weather Observatory. When we were there in August the temp. was 43 at the summit with snow in the forecast for the next day.

The only warning is that if you or Irene are afraid of heights, don't go up! I hate heights and I was scared ****less!

E-Trailer sells a Roadmaster park light diode ,RM-690 At $10.99.

We had the problem with our Fit. Solved the problem by running 8 gauge wire with a fuse from the battery to the PC's tow plug.

We just got back home to Florida after having spent 2 months in Maine. If you have the time, take the one hour drive over to the Schoodic Peninsula which is part of Acadia but on the other side of Frenchmen's Bay. We spent 2 weeks there and thoroughly enjoyed it (except for the time George fell on the rocks and hurt his back).

On the older models, there were two keys to open the entry door on the coach. On the newer PC's, there is one key to open the entry door.

we will be right behind you if Kermit ever expands the line with a 33 or 34' PC.

I have been up on the roof many times and on each side, there is an 8-10" section that flexes when walking on it. I understood that it is designed to flex. Do you have bubbles??? Do you have pictures.

I have never pressure washed my roof. I do get up there with a hose, brush and cleaner.

We agree with you 100%! We will never have DiamondShield on the front of the coach again.

We are in Florida, as well, and our rig is stored outside.

I agree with you, Gail.

We had an Armstrong wood look vinyl sent to Phoenix to be installed in our 2551 and it looked great. When we ordered the 2910, we accepted the standard vinyl flooring due to the added cost of the Armstrong.

When we got to the factory to pick up our 2910, the first PC with the wood flooring was just being finished.
