I bought the best tires Goodyear offered and they unzipped on me. The tread came off with only 8K miles on them. Goodyear replaced all four of them and they where fine. When I bought my PC it came with Michelin tires. Four thousand miles later I got a recall notice from Michelin. They replaced all 7 tires. Now have 20K miles without any problems. I have bought cars that came with either Goodyear or Michelin. Both have served me well.

You win some, you lose some.

I agree with Ron, Phoenix installed mine. On my first PC it came with wood grain. The second PC was to get the carbon fiber, but I asked and got wood grain installed.

It used to be the tires were put on by Ford. Phoenix did not have any say about which brand was used. I don't know if it is still that way.

My Onan generator has a built in delay between when it starts and when it provides current to any thing. My surge protector has the same feature. It takes 2 1/2 minutes to supply current to the PC. 

I turn off the a/c and any other things before disconnecting from the post or turning off the generator.

Renotse you are correct about a real heat pump, such as I have at home, but what was advertised as a heat pump on my PC has the coil. I was surprised when the tech show me the coil. He was checking the a/c when he showed me the coil. He said most RV a/c s are like that. I can't say myself but am just passing along what I saw.

If you pick up a new PC when it is cold or just cool outside, ask if you can take it inside to test the a/c. Test the heat outside. You can move your stuff while inside as well.

My heat pump has a heating coil that the air blows over. The compressor does nothing for heating.

The only QC I saw was when I looked into the bathroom mirror. Oh, it was me.  That was back in 2011, things might have changed since then.

Airstreams are to rounded to put a slide into if they wanted to. They even need a special awning arm that is bent to fit the sides.  sad

LazyDaze are know for being stuck in the 1950's. Try getting them to customize their motorhome, not going to happen. 

Some folks resist change now matter what, while others embrace changes and improvements. Wink

This site is not run or monitored by Phoenix USA. They pay to allow us, their owners and would be owner to use it. Do not expect anyone from Phoenix to post or reply on here.

"quirks of the MB Sprinter" I am wondering what quirks you have heard about. The MB Sprinter is used by Phoenix as well as many other companies. If Ford drops the E350/E450, I may have to go to the MB Sprinter in the future as the Dodge and the Transit don't seem to be a  good fit for a motorhome to me.

If you have a plastic plug, you will not have an anode rod to replace. Cleaning is only need once a year when you winterize in most parts of the country, but it never hurts to do it.

I had the same thing happen on an another motorhome. I took it to an RV repair shop. They replaced a $25 part. They didn't need to even bring it inside to fix it. I can't remember the part name, sorry.

Bobby mounted our towel bars to the door. One up high the other in the middle. I mounted the toilet paper holder bar on the right most side of the door. When I close the door it slides right in front of me.

Who ever owns our PC after us will get the bars already mounted, just like most RVs come from the factory.

Did you ask him about changing to automatic leveler over the standard PC has installed? Have you asked the same question of Earl?
