I put in two soap dishes in our shower and they are still there three and half years later. They are the 3M Command product using the "bath" tape that came with them. Last month I added a plastic holder (4l x 2w x 2h) for holding small bottles of shampoo, etc. I used the "bath" tape again and have not had any problems yet. We even left the bottles in there for the trip home from Myrtle Beach to Maryland. I used rubbing alcohol to clean the wall first.

Is your tow bar level or within two inches of level? I had to add a four inch risher on the back of the PC to get level. We also tow a Trailhawk, my wifes daily driver. I drive the Grand Cherokee. Have had mostly Jeeps since 1993. Most of the time I don't know it is back there but sometimes it does cause tail wag on bad roads. I use a Blue Ox tow bar and base plates with locking pins. A invisable brake system with radio signal to the PC dash. Also use the Blue Ox light kit for the tail lights. Had a charging wire run to the Jeep battery so it stays charge. We have run from Colorado Springs back to Maryland with out having to unhook.

The valve is not hidden, it is behind the new water hook up door. Your PC probably does not have one. I don't have one either. I sure wish we did as it is a major improvment that was added later, i think in 2014. You can see it on some of the videos and pictures of the new PCs.

Did you down size or is this your first RV?

I looked at the Tire Shops website and they recommend replacing the rubber gasket every five years. This would mean removing the tires again at a cost of another $80 besides not being very good for the tires.

I wonder about removing the current extenders, putting a drop of removable Locktite on the valve stem and putting the original extenders back on. It would be a whole lot cheaper.

Very interesting. You two are putting less presure in the rear than in the front. Are you sure you don't have this backward? shrug

My E450 calls for 75 front and 80 rear. I run about 5 lbs less because I weighted the coach and used the Michelin charts.

It really shows what Phoenix can do for its customers request. You captured how beautiful it is on the outside while her pictures show the inside.

Hi Sue,

    When you need to reset a breaker, push it all the way to the off position before turning it back on. It may look like it is off and still move to the on position but it has not been reset unit you push it all the way off. See if this helps.

"Next question, which might be best answered via a call to P.C., can jacks be added, retrofitted, to a unit at the factory?"

Phoenix sends the unit down the road about two miles to HWH for the jacks to be installed. It does not matter if the unit is new or used. Many RV dealer, including Camping World, can and do install the jacks on most motorhomes.

I have jacks and have had them on every one of the seven motorhomes I have owned. I would not buy a motorhome without them. I hate having to sleep with my feet higher than my head. On our way home from our last trip that would of been the case if I had not had them. Just my 2 cents worth, as they say.

A lot of you are looking at this post but no one is saying anything. I sure hope some one at the factory see it and can help us out.

I cannot begin to tell you how many latches we have broken. I am always prying the latch with a flat screw driver also. We just got back from a three week trip and we only broke one latch. Before we left I sprayed all the latches with WD40. Just a little bit of WD40 into each latch. So far it is working. When I got my first PC I sprayed them with silicone. That was a big mistake as they melted together. I had to replace all of them. The last time I order new one from Carol at the factory, I asked her about this and she told me that some people have problems while others don't. She does not know why this is so. I guess we are just the lucky ones that have problems.

Does anyone know what RV shows/rallies Phoenix Cruiser will be at this year?

I wonder why they don't post this information as a sticky. It seems like potential buyers would like to know and us old time owner would like to stop by and say hi.

I like the new one better. The Liberty did not have aux. brakes while the Trailhawk has SMI plug and play brakes. The tow bars are spread a little wider on the Trailhawk but it does not seen to make much difference when towing it just doesn't sway as much.
