Congratulations on your new PC!  Being able to make so many custom changes to a new motorhome is really a treat and the folks at the factory are great when it comes to that.  Having this forum to share all our ideas really comes in handy when it comes time to buy our next model. 

Happy camping!

Mike,

Thanks for the information on the replacement shower head.  I've checked Camping World's webpage and could not find much selection for shower heads.  I used "handheld shower head" for my search.  Is there something else I should use to find what I want and what you described?

My PC was winterized at the factory prior to my purchase, but when I de-winterized it pink stuff did flow from the shower head that is cracked.

When I de-winterized my PC a week ago I discovered water spraying from the base of the shower head in the indoor shower.  At first I thought it was caused by a loose connection so I added plumber's tape to the joint, but the spray continued.  When I looked closer I saw about a 1" crack in the base of the shower head. 

Since this is my first time to use the shower in my used 2010 PC I don't know if it is original equipment or not.  My question to the forum is "What do you recommend for a replacement shower head?"  I was told today by a clerk at Ace Hardware that RV shower heads have the same 1/2" standard threaded connections as those in homes, but in looking on-line at Menard's, Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, Camping World, and Bed, Bath & Beyond I have not found one hand-held shower head with the shut-off on the head that all RV shower heads seem to have.  Mine is chrome with a chrome-wrapped hose.  Is that what came on your PC's? 

Thanks for any help you can offer.

My surround sound works on whatever TV channels I can get on the Batwing antenna.  With the TV set to "external speakers" and the surround sound on "Aux 2" there is no sound from the TV, but only from the four surround sound speakers.  If I try to use the TV remote to change the volune I get the message "Not available."  I use the surround sound remote to change that volume for the TV in that setup. 

Hope this helps someone.

Does anyone with a model 2350 PC have a good place to store an "emergency" sewer hose?  Do you think a 10' section of hose would be adequate for emergency use?  Any possibility it could share the macerator hose compartment?  I wouldn't feel good about storing it in the rear or side storage compartments unless it was securely sealed against leaks, but I agree that it would be a good idea to carry one of those in case of problems with the macerator pump.

Your timing was perfect for getting a new RV just as the weather is turning warmer and conducive to travel and camping.  I add my congratulations on the acquisition of a new Phoenix Cruiser.  I, too, have a 2350 non-slide PC as you can see in my profile.  Unlike you I have been patiently waiting since January to be able to use my new toy.  I'm planning my first campout at the lake near where I live in the first week of May at a Corp of Engineers facility. 

I'm sure you are going to love your motorhome!    ThumbsUp

My motorhome is in storage still, but I seem to recall using the remote to lock the doors also turns off those lights.

I'm a new owner here, but on my walk-thru I was told that that emergency start switch on the dash was to be turned on and left for about 30 minutes before it would be able to work with the engine battery to start the vehicle motor.  I stress that I am NEW to this, but thought I'd offer you what I could on the subject.

Those tire pressure recommendations should be located inside the driver's door frame.

Does anyone use an electric grill?  I suppose that would work best for those who use electical hookups as opposed to boondocking so as not to drain the batteries.  So far I haven't purchased a grill and would be interested in hearing your ideas comparing gas vs. electric grills.  My first thought is that the electric grills would be less bulky and could be more flexible in where they were set up at the camp site.

Thanks for all the good ideas, guys!  I hadn't thought about the high gasoline prices causing some people to forgo camping this year.  I like that idea!   LOL  It could affect my travel too, but I enjoy the experience no matter how far away from home I go so I'm sure I'll have lots of fun this first year even if I'm at the lake just five miles from home.

I see some campgrounds have "walk-in" only sites that cannot be reserved, but are the sites that can be reserved available for walk-ins too (if not reserved. or course)?

I'm new at all this and with the weather turning warmer here in the Midwest I'm beginning to think about going camping.  I've registered with both ReserveAmerica.com and Recreation.gov, but my idea of traveling in an RV doesn't include being on a tight schedule.  Am I naive to think I can find an available campsite by just driving into a campground and registering for the night, week, or month?  I can understand how those expectations would be unrealistic on a holiday weekend or maybe even on any weekend in some popular tourist areas. 

How do you all handle finding a place to stay for the night without planning your trips well in advance and making reservations?  Maybe that's why Walmart parking lots are so popular.   Grin

As always, thanks for your help.
