Ron I am glad you fixed the problem without having to terrorize the cab. Kermit is so helpfull. How many other companies do you know where the owner is so helpfull? Not many I bet.

My 2350 was built on the E450 instead of the E350 per my request. I did not fined the ride to be rough. I did upgrade the shocks to Bilsteins to reduce the rock and roll. I foolishly upgraded the rear sway bar, which made very little improvment.
My 2552 also got the new Bilstein shocks along with the bilstein steering dampner. I like the way it handles and rides with these changes and don't plan on anymore susoension changes.

You can see in the new video that the cut away comes without any carpet. It is a great video, because Aimee loves us as much as we love her.

Fantastic! I can hardly wait to see the next installment. I don't know of any other company that is so open to showing how their product is made.

How about having John do the glass thing while you drive and take pictures for us? Grin

Anode?   What anode?   I have never had an rv that had a hot water tank that did not use an anode.  I have always replaced them long before most folks do, figuring they are a heck of a lot cheaper than a new tank.    I didn't know that Atwood has no anode.

Has that worked OK for everybody?   Anyone ever just pull that drain plug and put an anode in there?   The plug appears to be 1 inch and I am used to a (as I recall) a 1 1/8 plug on my previous rv with a Suburban.    Maybe I just worry too much!!


Do not put an anode rod in the water heater or you will be buying a new heater real soon. Only use the plastic plug, it works just fine.

Welcome to the family.

We did the same thing with the shades. We really really like them over the old day/night shades we had in our Winne.

If you have auto level, you have either an upgrade to what Phoenix normally installs or the jacks were added later.

When I picked up the 2552 the factory missed installing the jacks. So they had me take it to the HWH shop in Elkhart to have them installed. I saw them mounting the box with the controls on the front. It is the box everyone is talking about. It also contains the hydraulic fluid for the jacks. I sure hope I never have to add fluid or even check it as the plug is on the top of this box.

i believe that the switch in the sani-con compartment is for turning on and off the water pump when you want to use the outside shower. That way when you are outside and don't want to run inside just to turn on the water. Great when dry camping at the beach.

Hey Holly, it might be those little worry worts screaming as they come off you. The more you RV and drive the more worry worts come off.  LOL

You might try taking a glass, turn it upside down and set it on the floor while John is driving. Put your ear on the bottom of the glass and listen for the noise. Next move the glass a couple of inches down the motorhome and listen again. Did the noise get louder or softer? Keep doing this, trying to pin point where the noise is the loudest.  It might help to know where the noise is coming from. Even if it doesn't help someone, I am sure it will have John and the cat in stitches.

I replaced the shocks with the newer silver Bilstein shocks and the ride improved a lot, but the wandering was still there. So I replaced the steering dampener with the Bilstein steering dampener. That was a hugh improvement in handling. It was explained to me that the Bilstein steering dampener helps hold the steering in a straight line where as the safe-t-plus is to prevent the wheel from jerking during a blow out or running off the road. I guess they both do a little of the others job as well.

I was taught that you should push the button to "stop" and hold it until the light comes on, then release it. Next push the button to start and it should start within a few seconds, maybe 10 seconds. Works every time for me. If you are holding the button on stop until the light goes out, you might be flooding it.
