1021  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Deinstall Coffee Maker from Cupboard door on: October 12, 2010, 04:17:57 pm
    We did not get the PC coffee maker. I told them to keep it as I wanted the space for a trash can. Instead my wife and I went to Sears and bought a 5 cup coffee maker for $25. She stores it in the cabinet over the drivers seat during the day. There is plent of height for it or maybe even a larger coffee maker. At night she sits it on the counter over the stove, under the hood ready for the morning. Seem to work for us and have not had any problems with it yet. Five cups is great as I don't have to wait as long for that first cup and it doesn't take that long to brew the second pot when needed.

I just went out to the motorhome to check the door screws. I did not find any broken screws but there were several that I could tighten. They were in the door frame to the body and the door handle/lock and latch. The screws in the door all were tight. Thanks for the tip. It could be embarrassing to have the door fall out going down the road. LOL

Bob, thank you for the clarifcation on what you said about the mirrors. I still do not understand about seeing 200' behind you. Starting at what point? Anyway, I am happy with the shorter arms. I believe that everyone has the right to their choice of short or long arms. I guess that is why they make both sizes. I don't want to have this issue go on and on, so I have said how I feel and I will leave it at that. No more about mirrors from me.

You wrote "One other subject.  The width of your outside mirrors.  The mirrors are designed a certain width as the law in most states requires your rear visibility to be able to see a point a specific distance directly behind your vehicle.  If you shorten the arms, that point will move much farther aft of your vehicle, thereby creating a very large blind spot. " Where did you get this information from?

The shorter arm mirrors we are talking about are made by Remco, the same manufacture that makes the longer arm mirrors. They are made for motorhomes that are 93' to 96" wide, like ours. The long arms are for motorhomes that are greater than 96" up to 102".  Coach House has been using these short arm mirrors for years. I would have to think that they are legal in all states, but I am not a lawyer. I understand that Phoenix USA is now using the short arm mirrors as standard equipment for 2011.  Please clear up your statement for me.

mciai2000 Acturally it was LG that brough up the sani-con, not me. He saved my bacon as well as yours.

On my 2350 with slide, the water pump is under the rear bed, about half way between the top and bottom. The factory put the bypass in before putting the bed plywood down and putting the mattress in place. They then cut a 4" wide by 6" high hole in the wall into the outside cabinet. Looking from the outside, the hole is in the right hand rear corner. I put the bottle jack in front of it and you can not even see the hole. I have to reach into this hole to get the hose and to turn the valve. I put a longer hose on the bypass to give me a little more reach to work with when putting the hose into the anti-freeze bottle.

    If you look at the sani-con pump from under the motorhome, you will see a 2" section of clear hose or the black hose connecting to the output side of the pump. I removed the hose clamp and the hose, took it to my local Ace hardware store (they have all the little odd things the big stores don't stock) and bought a 2 foot section of clear hose of the same size. I also bought a "T" and a water valve and two stainless steel hose clamps. I put the water value into the top of the upside down "T". After I pulled the old back hose through the wall I connected it to one end of the "T", and put the new clear hose on the other end of the "T". Put your two new clamps on the hoses connected to the "T". I pushed the clear hose through the wall leaving about four or five inches showing. Going back under the motorhome I connected the new clear hose where the old hose connected to the pump, again using a hose clamp. I had to cut off some of the clear hose to make it fit, but I would rather have too much hose than not enough. I tightened all the hose clamps. All done, that simple.

    Now when I use the hose, I remove the screw-on cap from the end of the hose and put it on the new water valve for storage. When back flushing, I can see what is flowing through the clear hose and I flush until it runs clear. After dumping, I remove the cap, open the valve, lift and shake the hose to get all the water out of the hose. THEN I CLOSE THE VALVE. This last step is very important, otherwise next time you turn on the pump, well you guess where the water is going.  rolling on the floor

    I hope this helps you.

I found it. It is under and behind the lower left hand drawer. I pulled the drawer open and could see the crossover hose with three valves. When it comes time to use it, I will have to get the drawer out, and switch the valves. I know that I have to push down on one sides lever while lifting the other sides to remove the drawer. It did not want to come out this time, but next time it will, one way or another.

Ron, just remeber to close the spicket after each and every use, otherwise the next time the waste water will come out the top. This happened to me one time.  rolling on the floor

L.G. Thanks about the sani-con warning, I would not have thought of the pump needing anti-freeze. I did one of my many mods to the hose. I put a longer clear hose that runs up into the compartment, then I added a "T" with a spicket that I can open to allow air into the hose. It helps to drain the hose after using the system. The clear part allows me to see when the back flushing has flushed everything out. So I guess this mod will save me from having to put anti-freeze in the hose. Again thanks for the tip.  ThankYou

Does anyone know if the 2010 2350s have a water heater bypass? The water heater is under the kitchen sink behind a wooden wall. Could it be hiding in there?  Help

When we went to the Hershey show, Stuart from the factory had some windshield/window shades that let the light in, but people could not see in. You can even get a picture printed on them. Since I already have the kind that is solid with the roll down sections that let the light in, I had to pass on his. You might want to call Stuart about the cost of his shades. You can see mine here .

I do both, blow out the lines and then add anti-freeze. Sometimes I am one very big chicken. First I drain all the lines, fresh water tank and the water heater. Then I put my air plug into the water line input and blow out the lines, by opening and closing one faucet (cold, then hot) at a time. I then turn the hot water bypass and using the anti-freeze pickup tube, I add the anti-freeze. This will be my first year with this motorhome but this is what I have done for the last five motorhomes. I had the anti-freeze pickup tube put in when it was built. Come to think about it, I don't know if there is a water heater bypass and where it would be. Can anyone help me out here? I would hate to have to buy six gallons of anti-freeze just to fill the water heater and one for all the lines.

Hi Roni, nice to meet you. If you want and I wish everyone would, you can go into your profile and add your name and which motorhome you have. It will then be posted with all your messages. See the the bottom of this message for an example. HiThere

Ron, I believe you are right about the 2010 slide with the reefer in it being the change point. There is nothing under the reefer because there is a 4" hump for the slide.

Echo11, do you have a name? I feel silly calling you Echo11 all the time.

    My short arm mirrors in no way impeade my viewing the lanes next to me or changing lanes. The only issue with them is the cars that are hiding behind me just outside the camera view. If either of us shifts left or right in the lane, or we go around a curve, I can see them. If the sun is to the side of us, I can see their shadow. I have not had any problems keeping track of them. I know Ron and some others pefer the wider arms for seeing behind themseleves, and I respect them for that, but I don't feel their need. You have to know that Ron is from Chicago and we all know how they drive up there. Just kidding you Ron.  I took a picture of my PC headon before the rains started, but it does not really show you how good or bad the mirrors work.  I will try and post it here, but I have never done that before now. You can see my rig at Yellowstone in the "Adventure anywhere" page off the home page. It is the brown one. I will try the Insert image button above now, here goes nothing. Well that didn't work. Sorry.

    There are several changes to the 2011 besides the windows, They changed the TV speakers, the monitor panel is now behind the driver's seat and the Microwave has changed. There maybe other changes that I have missed or that are done during the model year. Phoenix does not seem to make any major changes from year to year unless the bring out a new model like the 2910. They just seem to keep improving the current model with upgrades. That is one of the reason I like this brand. Also it will help if and when I go to sell it, the buyer knowing that they are getting close to the same thing that is currently offered.

    I had three different people tell me how much they like our motorhome this weekend. One was when I was in traffic in downtown Gettysburg. He was walking down the street and stop to tell me how much he liked it. He then asked if I would sell it to him. Of course I told him "no way", he would have to get his own. The size, shape and the full body paint really turns people on the this motorhome. This was another time I was glad I had the short arm mirrors as the road was very narrow with lots of traffic. We like to sit inside and watch the people walking by in the campgrounds and how they point at the rig.

    Got to go for now.
