We have no leakage at this point. We wanted to let anyone know, who maybe did not know, of this possible problem. As a part of the claim, we now have a 3 year extended warranty for this. We will be checking the fridge more often now for that yellow/green powdered substance.
The only problem that we ever had was the propane ignition. The igniter was not calibrated correctly. Oh yeah, and the door falling off!!!!

Thanks for the info. We are looking forward to spending time at Schoodic Woods. I didn't like that the other two National Park Campgrounds in Acadia didn't have water and electric at the sites but Schoodic is new and does. And from what I understand, the free bus into Bar Harbor stops at the campground--it's an hour into Bar Harbor. We shall see!

We received notification that there is a Class Action against Norcold. It pertains to the fridge--our Model N6 manufactured from January 2009 to December 2013. The Class Action also includes the N8 and the 1200 Series.

The problem is in the cooling unit. There is a safety related defect in the cooling unit. If you observe yellow or green residue at the cooling unit, immediately turn off the unit.

The website is WWW. NorcoldClassAction.Com. To join the Class Action, if you have one of these units, you must join by Aug. 26, 2016. You can submit a claim online.

It looks as if we won't be in the same area. We leave FL June 10-3 weeks in MA then on to Boothbay Harbor Maine for 3 weeks. After that, we head to the new National Park Campground on the Schoodic Peninsula  (across from Bar Harbor) for 2 weeks and then on to the  Canadian Maritimes. We plan to be in NH the last week in August.

I have seen MH with a window in the slide. It could probably be done--cost may be prohibitive though.

BTW, Joey, where will you be in NH. We are going to spend a week at the Bluffs (Danforth Bay) to check out the CG for possible seasonal next year.

. I ran an 8 guage wire from the coach plug to the toad battery and installed a 20 Amp fuse at the battery end. The material cost all of $15 (in Key West). Our  Honda Fit battery died on the way to The Keys. Ever since, have had no problems with a dead battery.

On our first PC, the 2350 Sprinter, we had the factory install an Armstrong vinyl flooring that replicates wood flooring. We ordered it from Home Depot and had it shipped to the factory for installation. It really looked good. That was before they offered wood flooring as an option.

We did not have it installed in our 2551 or the 2910 due to the additional cost.

I don't like the look of the standard vinyl as compared with the wood but we cover it with throw rugs so it is not all that offensive.

We have a 2910 with one slide (sofa). We wanted twin beds as well as the larger windows and those wonderful Euro chairs. Phoenix accommodated us by building the 2910 with one slide and the twin beds. We did not need the dinette and did not want the slide with the bed. PC will build what the customer wants if at all possible. They just delivered another 2910 with one slide a couple of weeks ago.

We have never had a problem fitting into a site at any campground--state, national or private. Our length is 31' 5".

For what it's worth--- and welcome to the Forum.

Welcome to the Forum HelloBalloons. We have had 3 PC's starting with the 2350, no slide. We were new to the RV world at the time and did not see the need for a slide. What a mistake!! Two PC's without and now the 2910 with the slide. I understand that everyone's needs are different and there are those that swear by the no slide option. Not us. The slide offers so much more living space. My advice is to think carefully what you want/need and how you plan to use the RV now and in the future.

I tapped into the wiring for the light fixture  that is in the Sanicon discharge cabinet when we had the Carry-out.  I wired in a 12V receptacle which I mounted on the back wall of the Sanicon compartment. The receptacle was about $25 plus the wiring.

If you need more info, send us an Email.

They are wonderful. The same thing happened to us when we were in Maine and Carol shipped one out immediately. I will rave about the Phoenix customer service to anyone who will listen.

another one of our mistakes. Living in Florida and not being able to store the rig under cover, we bought an Adco cover for our 2551 (now we have a 2910). It was expensive and we never put it on the rig. Too much hassle. Now we do not have it covered but we do put tire covers on and put plywood under the tires when we store it. We envy those who have their rigs garaged.

We use Mequiers Flagship Premium Marine Wax. It has UV protection in it. We also use 303 Aerospace Protectant on the tires and the Diamondshield. It was recommended by Diamondshield.

We have a cabinet behind the driver's seat in our 2910. We had it built when we ordered the 2910. It was not standard on the 2910. It holds small items. We posted a picture on our post titled: New Cabinet behind drivers seat in our 2910. It was posted on 10/6/2012.

Initially, the factory did not want to do it because they said that it would impede the reclining of the driver's seat but we never recline the driver's seat! George had to reposition the guages. Check it out.

Welcome!!! You made the correct decision with the slide in the 2351. Our first PC, the 2350 on the Sprinter chassis, did not have a slide. Knowing now--what we did not then--we certainly would have ordered ours with the slide. It gives so much extra room. It took us 3 tries to get it right---2350 no slide, 2551 no slide!!! Custom 2910 with one slide is perfect for the tow of us. We generally are away from home for 4 months so we have the living space that we need.

If you get to Florida next winter, give us a shout. And again, congrats and welcome. Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate

On top of the Honda Fit that we tow.
