Water tank is the biggest problem and cost if you freeze it. I have seen one that split on the back of the tank and the whole thing needed to be replaced. Drain it no matter what you do. I winterize my motorhome after thanksgiving, then just before we go away for the Christmas break I flush the lines and put water into the fresh water tank, 3/4 full. I place a heater in the coach and open the lower cabinet doors so heat can get to the lines. I will let the motorhome sit of two or three days this way without any problems. The day we depart, I turn on the water pump and fill the water heater. I have never had any problems. I never gets below zero here and hardly gets much below upper twenties. Where you live might be different.

Then again you could do like Ron D. does and put the PC in a heated garage.

We did the same thing but I got one that allows for two outside sensors and the time. One sensor goes in the outside cabinet by the door and the other in the refer. That way i can make sure my beer is cold and it is not to hot to take it outside. Cheers

One trick I use is to look at the roof of other RVs near me and see which way the antenna is pointing. I then point mine in the same direction, turn on the booster button (red light), check air or cable setting on the TV, then scan for channels. I hope someone near me has been watching TV or has paid the big bucks for the direction finder.

When I owned a Chinook we had a "serious vibration " in the A/C one time. It rattled the whole camper. Cry I called service at Camping world and they knew right away what it was.  nod They told me to remove the cover and look at the fan. So I did that and found a small brown mud darter (bee) nest. I cleaned it out and all was well again. ThumbsUp Live and learn. rolling on the floor

Ladies, ladies please don't take me wrong. I am not saying not to go, just expect that in some parts of Florida, which is a really big state, you might run into some crowds. We have been down to Florida many times at different times of the year and always have a good time. There have been some hard times, like the week between Christmas and New Years that we went to WDW only to find out that is the busiest week of the year. Besides it seemed like everyone was calling me "Mate". I guess it is their summer break time down under at that time of year.

Yes Judi, you will not stand in any lines at restaurants if you eat in your PC. rolling on the floor We like to eat out at least once a day to sample the local food. Ever since I got out of the Navy many years ago, I have tried not to stand in a line to eat if at all possible. Grin

Camping in Florida in January is like shopping in Time Square the week before Christmas. Not the same as normal, maybe fun but not normal. Wink

Are you saying it is difficult to find open sites without reservations?   Are you also saying it is like shopping on Black Friday?   

We were maybe thinking of Florida instead of the SW for 2014... Maybe not a good idea?


Denny, yes it will be like shopping on Black Friday with respect to the long lines everywhere and the large crowds everywhere you go.  It will be worth the trip if you keep in mind that you will have to wait in lines to do just about everything from seeing the tourist traps to getting a seat in a restaurant. One of the nice things about owning a PC is that it is small enough to fit in just about any available campsite, not like a bigger class A. Reservations are good if you know when and where you want to be, but most camp grounds will have a site or two that you can fit into. At least that has been my experience. I like to travel in the shoulder seasons, before the snowbirds take flight or after they return back home to the roost. September, November, or April, May time frame.

Welcome jmosier,

Which shades are you talking about, the inside window shades or the outside windshield shade that Amanda at Phoenix sells. If you are talking about Amanda's shades, yes I bought them last year and find they work really well. I can see out during the day and no one can see in. At night I can bearly see out and everyone can see in. I just pull the curtains across when I don't wants anyone seeing in. They help keep the sun out and the motorhome stays a lot cooler during the day. At night they help keep the campground lights out. The white shades I bought at Camping World just help light up inside. The curtains kind of glow at night without the black shades. The shades are easy to put on and take off. I am a six footer and don't need the wand that came with them. If you do a search, you will find that several owners have bought them and all seem to like them. They are costly but they work. I guess you get what you pay for. Cheers

You might want to complete filling out your profile as this information is helpful went answering some of your question. ThankYou

Phoenix does not provide TP holder or towel bars. You have to provide your own and they will install them.
We had the towel bars installed on the sliding door as far left as possible. One near the top and the other about midway down the door. Then I installed the TP holder on the same door as far right as possible just below eye level when sitting. I installed it because I wasn't sure of where I wanted it while at the factory during pickup. Sorry I don't have any pictures of this set up. 2Frazzled might have a picture that they can post. They took a lot of pictures inside my PC, when they toured it. I don't have any problems with them posting any of the pictures they took. They are nice folks and will be a great addition to our happy family.

Do a search on cover and you will find several post about how some of the folks are working around the overhead part of the cover. As far as we know no one makes a cover for a B+, just class Cs.
