For a short while Phoenix used a fixture that had the two fluorescent tubes and a single dome light bulb in it. I bought seven of these from Carol and replaced the lights over the beds, in the bath room, under cabinets in the living room and one spare. I left the main ceiling lights the old two tube. Now if I want a lot of light I turn on the tubes and a night when I want just a little light the dome lights come on. I don't know if Carol still can get these fixtures or not. The new fixtures are slightly narrower and thinner but I was able to make them work. I Replaced the hotter than hell reading lights with LED bulbs I found on the internet. They are bight enough to read by but don't give off the heat. No more burnt fingers.

I just stuck them between a couple of things like the battery and the fender, any where away from heat.  One bag Under each hood and one in outside draw.

When we had mice under the hood of our cars, i read about a product called "Freah Cal". I found it at my local Ace hardware store. I put one bag under the hood of each car and the PC. No more mice. It has a stong but fresh smell that rodents don't like.

When one is as lazy as I am, this might be the solution otherwise use 2F's solution above.

Before you start replacing your batteries take a picture of the wiring. You can refer to this picture when rewiring to insure you have it correct. Wink

Remove the negative/ground wire first. Replace the that wire last. This will prevent sparking, which can be a bad thing.

About 8 mpg maybe a little more or a little less depending on conditions and you way of driving.

Go to the Phoenix home page. Look for "Phoenix Owner's Club"  about 2/3 the way down and click on it. That page we tell you all about the club and allow you to print the latest newsletter. In the newsletter is the current information about the reunion.

This year the reunion will be at the Nashville KOA in September.

We went to our first reunion last year and had a great time. Normally I don't join manufactures clubs because I switch motorhome brands to often, except now I think I have found a home with Phoenix.

Sometimes we run with just the windows open, sometimes just the cab A/C, sometimes with both the cab and roof A/C. It has to be pretty hot for me to use both A/Cs, but I do it for the dog in the back.

Yes the generator runs off the gas tank until the tank get below about 1/3 empty, then it shuts down. That way the generator will not run you out of gas, you have to do that yourself.  LOL

I have walked on it but the roof is slightly rounded, so I would not be partying up there. But then maybe you are the one fan that does not drink, so you could sit on the roof.

    I totally agree with Ron, go to the factory. They will show you new units and how they are built, which is far better than a showroom with completed models only. I drove 10 hours to see it and felt it was worth the time. I have bought two PCs since then.

    Another option is to call the factory and ask if anyone that lives near you can show you theirs. There is a program where if you show your PC to someone and that person buys one, they get a small reward.

    As for the larger models on the Ford E450 cutaway van, it is just that, normal V10 with normal baking system. Last Sept. 2014 we went from Maryland over the mountains in western Maryland and Pennsylvania and on to Estes Park, Colorado then down to Colorado Springs for the Phoenix club reunion. We were towing a 2004 Jeep Liberty at the time. We did not have any problems going up or down the mountains.   

    I would not own and motorhome without HWH leveling jacks. There are just to many camp sites that are not level and I will not sleep with my feet above my head. Besides who wants their drink to slide off the table?

The Phoenix Cruiser owners club will be holding its reunion at the Nashville KOA this Sept. 10-15, 2015. What is there to see and do in and around Nashville?

I know about the Grand Ole Opry and the night clubs for the evenings, but what about during the day time. My wife likes country music but I am not musically inclined. I will sit through 2 1/2 hours of the Opry if she really wants to go. I saw on the internet that the Tennessee State fair will be happening during the reunion time. The reunion will include an afternoon boat trip on the river.

Have you been to Nashville? What did you see or do that you liked? What is not worth the time or money to see and do?
If you have not been to Nashville, have you heard of anything that we should consider seeing or doing?

Thank you in advance for the information.

You could get back on the roof with a garden hose and slowly run water over the areas that you think might leak. Then check inside to see if the water came in. If you have a helper that can be inside watching while you water, all the better. It may take a few minutes for the water to run into where you see it.

Some RV dealers can do a pressure test and find all you leaks for you. It used to cost about $100. They pump air into the motorhome and spray a soap solution on the outside looking for bubbles.

Even here in Maryland I leave one of the roof vents cracked and the kitchen window cracked. I have vent covers over the vents to keep the rain out.

There are no water lines forward of the kitchen and no lines run in the ceiling.
You might want to check the five yellow running lights on the front of the roof. Make sure they are sealed around the base and the covers are snapped in good.
