Billy, If you need to buy an "extra cushion" for the dinnette or want to design a different type of seating, talk to Staurt about what you want.  Phoenix is very good about customizing a new rig while it is being built. I had about twenty things changed on mine, some small like not mounting the coffee pot or fire ext., some not so small, like no rear window or roof rack. I even had them use the E450 instead of the E350, for an additional cost. Phoenix's carpender is very good at making adjustments and Carol can get you just about anything like that "extra cushion". Then it would already be ready when you get the new motorhome.

So Billy, what about all your questions, did they get answered?  Now would be a good time to go back through them and review them if you haven't already. Why are you down sizing and just what are you willing to give up if anything to do it? We went from a 35" Winnebago class A down to the PC 2350 and are amazed at how much it holds. We gave up the dinette and use TV snack trays to eat off of. For formal dinning we set up the PC table in front of the sofa. The smaller size means we can go just about anywhere we want and be able to park it like a crew cab pickup. We really like to smaller size but we also understand that it might be to small for some folks. That is why they make so many different sizes.

Ron, If you want to tape them up, you might want to look into the "Command bathroom tape" by 3M. It is the same tape as used on the Command hooks only for bathroom humitiy.  I used it in the shower to hold two soap dishes on the wall with the shower. Now problem so far and they can be removed cleanly if I ever need to.

Taking out the couch is like removing one of the bedrooms in your house. Both reduce the number of beds, places to sleep. Both would hurt your resale value. If you are trading it in at an RV dealer, the dealer will just look in his book (NADA, blue or black) and get the tradein value. He would most likely not ask about the couch vs to chairs. Phoenix would know the difference and it might, I say might make a difference to them at tradein time. This is how a dealer can quote you a dollar amount for you trade without seeing it. At least this is what the dealer I worked at and the ones on know of used to do. I worked at an RV dealer for the last four years of my working life before really retiring five years ago.

I notice that you have a 2008 PC, which I think has the old jack knife sofa. Have you tried sitting on the newer sofa with the air bed. Ours is very confortable. I am changing out our barrel chair because it is not very confortable for sitting on for more than a few minutes. I would not change out the sofa for the barrel chairs, but I would think about changing the sofas if yours is that unconfortable. This is just my opinion.

"DSC01009-Electric cord w/strip so no wires dangling over counter and plugged into outlet below sink."

Yesterday I went to Home Depot a bought an electric strip with a 8 foot cord by Belkin. It came with the cord coming out the top with an on/off switch also on the top. No lights on the strip, which we think is a good thing as we don't need anymore night lights. I mounted it in the same location as Bob did except I decieded to run the cord up through a hole behind the microwave and plug it into the microwaves plug box. In the end it worked out but drilling the hold large enough for the new swival plug as a bear. I did not have a hole bit, just a 1 3/8" drill bit. Then I pulled the microwave out and plugged into the box. I am sure that Bob's way would have been much easier. Anyway the project is done and my DW is very happy with it.

Thank you Bob for the idear.  ThankYou

yes, she will not be able to look down on the food while it is in the microwave. My wife is the same hieght and she does not have any problems, unless she really wants to go out to eat.  LOL

After using a standup paper towel holder for many months, we just purchased a wall mounted one. I mounted it on the side of the range hood with a couple of bolts and nuts. It is at a 90 degree angle from Bob's mount. I did not think about or have to move the light. Just a different way of mounting it.

Your cup holder is not to be found around here. At least I can not find one. If you know where to get one, please let me know.

Really nice job of the mods. Great pictures also. Thank you.

Now I have at least two new project after the third captains chair, we maybe I will start them before it gets here. I really like the electric in the kitchen and the rails on the wings. I have not been able to find the rails anywhere around Maryland. Some of the others I have already done or had PC do them. What is your feeling about the short legs for the table now that you have lived with it for a while? I have two dogs, a 80lbs lab and an oversized German Shepherd at 125 lbs. So floor space is at a premium for us and taking up that much might be a problem, but it does look interesting. I am guessing it could be used as a footrest for both the sofa and the third captains chair, am I right?

Yippee,  Giddy today i ordered my barrel chair replacment. After seeing Ron's pictures, doing some mesuring and looking at all the other chairs as options, I ordered one that matches my captains chairs. I ordered it with both arms but passed on the lumbar support for additional $60.
    The  distance from the air bed when out and the current barrel chair when all the way back against the wall is 7 inches. With the new chair being about 2 inches deeper, I should still have 5 inches to spare. Since we hardly ever use the air bed this should be fine. Currently when watching TV, I sit in the barrel chair and put my feet up on the driver's seats arm rest, which is one of the advantage of having long legs.
    Now I just have to wait about two weeks before the chair gets here.

Thank you Ron for all your write ups and pictures and Thank you Bob M. for starting all this. If you two want to sent any money to my wife to pay for this chair and keep me out of trouble, please feel free to do so.  rolling on the floor

    It is nice to have an understand and forgiving wife.  Hug2

Really nice job.  ThumbsUp Thank you for all the pictures.  I have the OK to order a new chair tomorrow.  cool
How difficult was it getting the old chair out the door and the new chair in? Any tricks, like turning them on their side or on their back?  Help

Remember to explain to your DW that you get to use it sometimes also.

Sorry to be such a pain in the a__! But the only Cruiser we probably see is Bobs 2551 in Quartzsite. The reason for so many question are the articles in different magazines post on the Cruisers home page. (In the press) I realize most of the things I read have probably been addressed. But here goes, the questions are,

Uneven furnace heat they needed adjustable registers. - How uneven can it be in a space that small with four registers. Adjustable registers are about $10 each. add them later if you want.

1800-Watt inverter had DVD hum.- have never tried the dvd on the inverter, always on electric.

No light under cabinet sink.- my 2350 has 9 dual flor. lights, turn them all on and you will be getting your sunglasses out. we have a flor. light over kitchen sink.

The 2552 at Phoenix in stock has no duel pain windows, are the worth adding or just in the bedroom or? - I did not think the duel pain window are worth the money. did not get them.

Shades between driver and living area were hard to close and stiff. - not hard to close, harder to fold when opening them.

The mirror at the stove, what do yall think? Would it be worth taking out? Order it shipped unmounted and see for yourself. it is glued onto the wall.

Thank you all for your patience, I appreciate all your input, billy you need to take a chil pill and wait until you see a PC. Wouldn't want to lose you from stress before you can join our merry little band.  There There

Billy, the best thing you can do to improve ride, handling and the bouncing when sitting still is to have the Bilstein Heavy duty shocks put on your motorhome, IMHO. I got mine from The Ford shocks are not very strong.

The wingman comes on the new antennas as standard. Between the off the air and the cable at most campgrounds, I do not feel the need for sat. TV. My last motorhome had it and when I parked at a campground the most important thing was not to be under any trees or near anything that would block the sat. Now I don't worry about it, I  park where I want.
