The water at the factory used to be really bad. So bad that back in 2011 they would not put it in any of the new campers. I went into the bathroom and saw the rust in the sinks. I was glad they did not put that water in my tank.

Elkhart campground is just a few miles away and is nice but close to the interstate. Just a few miles farther (about 20 minute drive from the factory) is Shipshewana south. We liked it better than Elkhart. It is very near the armish restaurants and shopping. If it were me again, I would go to a full hookup camp site and test everything including dumping. On the last PC I skipped this due to the weather and drove all the way down to Indianapolis to camp the first night. I forgot to check the jacks at the factory only to find out they missed installing them. The work sheet was folded in half and they were in the fold. I had to drive back to the factory the next morning. They had me go directly to the HWH installer before going to the factory. They covered my gas and lunch. Very nice of them.

Ron,
A person size does not have any thing to do with wanting slide out. There are many reasons to want the slide out, such as you want the sofa that makes into  a bed so you can take along other people, like maybe grand kids. The sofa is a much better bed than the dinette. Maybe you just like the extra room when parked.
You could use your words to say one does not need the larger dinette you can get without the slide out. A right sized person would not need the larger dinette. Maybe you are just to tall to sleep on the regular size dinette.

I hate to think of what you would say about all those people in the big class A or 5th wheels with four or five slide outs. They must be really really huge people to need that many slide outs. I am just kidding you at this point, but I how you get my point.

Have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

 But my personal thoughts are......If you are NOT traveling with large pets, or are not seriously over-weight people who needs lots of elbow room, the No-Slide with over-size dinette just might be your better choice

Are you saying that those with slide outs are fat? This is the second time you have said this. This kind of remark to justify your reasons is beneath you and this forum.

It took us a long time to get approved for the forum, too.  I asked Kyle about it, and he said the software powering this form can accommodate only so many members and has long been max'd out.  The only way to add a new member is to find an old, inactive member and kick them off.
This is just part of the fun of dealing with a small outfit like Phoenix.  I'd rather have the personal service we get than the formalized efficiency (or, sometimes, the formalized inefficiency) of a big company.

This is the post I was answering, not any thing Patrica said.
I hope no one quits because of over crowding as there are was there are ways to over come that.

Finding members that do not post is easy. Just go to the members tab at the top. Then sort by post, twice. The first page is all members that have zero post. Their join date is right there also. Some one just needs to clean off old unused members.

There is a hot lead in the seven pin connector on the back of your PC. I had my installer run a wire from the same pin on the front of my Jeep to the battery, when he installed the braking system. The braking system turns on the toad brake lights and this runs down the battery. The hot wire recharges the battery from the PC. I hope this helps.

That is the same dash we have in our 2012. They were changing to the black dash for 2012, but one could still ask for and get the wood grain.
It looks in good shape. I would suggest they check the tires (including the spare) because of the Michelin recall. You can search on here and get all the info. Like others suggested have a mechanic check it out. Ask for the original owners name and phone number. They might be willing to talk to you.

I put it back in so I dont forget it next spring. It also keeps the bugs out.

The other day I was leaving with my wife to go shopping but as we we leaving I opened the low point valves and all the facets so they could drain. When we got home a couple of hours later, I removed the water heater plug. To my suprise no water was in the tank. Now I wonder why I need to remove the plug unless I want to flush the tank.

I carry a 20 hose that I use when we are staying more than a couple of days. I leave the gray open until just before I need to dump the black. Then I dump the black real fast, moving all the solids out much better than the slow moving Mercator does. After closing the black, I open the gray again and dont have to think about dumping for several more days. The big hose dumps faster and a lot quieter.
Some people say that allows gas into my RV. Not so as I leave a lower section of the hose between the RV and the ground hole, forming a block like a P trap works. I dont use those slinky ramps. Even if gas was to get into the tank, it would just exhaust out the top vent on the roof.

That is just my way of doing things and I am sticking to my way.

If the flushing doesnt work, then Check the wiring to the light and the tanks valve. It could be a lose ground.

Our sink cover has been cut in half. My wife likes it that way as she leaves half on for more counter space and stll can use the sink, some what. Other wise your idea looks interesting.

You might want to update your profile by clicking on your name. It seems to have gotten messed up some how.
