766  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Selling your 2350 with dinette? Want to buy used. on: October 31, 2011, 07:30:15 am
Over the years Phoenix has change the sofa/bed. Several years ago they used a jack knife sofa, then they went to the Air bed/sofa in 2010 and for 2012 they have a electric memory foam sofa. I have not tried to sleep on the new sofa yet. Each changes seems to have been for the better but none are as good as a real mattress. The air bed was pretty bad until we change the mattress to a better Areo bed mattress.

The dinette in the slide out is just too small for anyone except a small child. In the non-slide model the dinette is larger but still pretty small. The mattress part is the cushions that form the seats and the back. Ron has the non-slide dinette and seems to like it. I bet he will jump in here soon.

I used to sell RVs for about four years after I retired and before the market died. I never found a sofa that I felt was that comfortable and the dinettes where a PITA, IMO.

I am trading in a 2010 PC 2350 in the very near future. My PC has the sofa/air bed not the dinnette. Ron sent me a private message that I responed to. As I told him, I am locked into this deal as it is a very good deal. ThumbsUp

I wish you luck in finding a PC you like.

Roni, I would recommend that you paint the plywood board or polyurethane it. This should stop the splitters. Then add edge guards on the edge. Go to "tips & tricks" section on this forum and look at Sue's "High traffic storage guards". The guards come is several sizes in our local home depot and ace hardware stores.

Mine is to trade in the 2350 and pickup the new 2552. I will put up soap dishes, shower hooks, shower tray and a paper towel holder in the kitchen. The guys at the factory are making most of my wants for me. Doug who will be installing the towel bars and the Maxxair II vent covers for me. Bobby has added his touch with shelves over the headboard in the bedroom and a new compartment between the generator and the LPG tank.  I plan to keep my 3" sewer hose and connectors in it. Arn't the guys at the factory great!  ThumbsUp

Then I plan on having Bilstein HD shocks installed all around. After testing them, I will have to see just what other suspension changes I might want to make.

A new toy to play with.

P.S. The new PC is in the paint shop now, so in about two to three weeks we should get it, hopefully. Grin

Aimee, don't know if this is something you fix or not, but on the website under the "popular options" section there are some repeats.

What am I missing? I don't see any section "popular options"?

Nice job Barry. Do the glass cabinet doors still clear the TV? I was looking at my TV so I could tilt it downward but the doors kept hitting the TV. I did not think about recessing the mount.

Now you need to duck tape the wires in the rear cabinet by your DW new laundry basket. Always another project.

Call Kermit at the factory before you take it to a service center. It might be something simple that he can tell you how to fix. If you are covered under warranty, he will want to approve the fix before you have it done.

David,
We have made a couple of trips to Colorado and one trip to Utah and Arizona in the past. I would suggest that you pick one or the other, not both for a three week trip.  If I wanted to see some of the parks in Utah, I would drive through Colorado on I70. You will get to see the Eisenhower tunnel and Glenwood Canyon from the highway.  That is about all you will have time to see.
   We found that when we got to Arches National Park the road into the park was too steep for me in my 28 class A motorhome. At the time I was not used to mountain driving. What I would do today is either tow my Jeep or rent one in Moab, Utah. The KOA we stayed at rented them but I am sure others do also.  There are so many parks that it is hard to pick just a few but the ones that seem to be the most popular are, Arches, Bryce, Zion and Canyonlands.  We did not see many of the parks in Utah on our trip as we wanted to go to Arizona and the Grand Canyon. On the way south, we stopped at the Four Corners for about half an hour. Kind of neat to stand in four states at one time. We did have to take the picture of me standing in two states leaning over and kissing my wife while she stood in two other states, corny, huh.  Mostly there where Indians selling stuff like T-shirts, art work, rugs and beads etc.  There is a small canyon there also. We saw several arches just off the road from Moab to Four Corners.
   We went on down to the Grand Canyon, went in at the east entrance, stopped at several parking lots to look into the canyon. I had a lot of problems finding a place to park the motorhome and the few I did find were on hills. I was not comfortable leaving the motorhome on such a steep incline, so my wife went to the canyon and took some pictures for me to see later.  We went to the canyon village and had to park across the street, fight the traffic to walk across to the canyon and visitors center. Some people really like the canyon and others think it is just a big hole in the ground. I am of the later group. Maybe if spent a whole day or two watching the rocks change color as the sun moves across the sky it would be better. After leaving the canyon we went south toward Williams and spent the night at a campground called Black Barts. Black Barts is a restaurant where the wait help (collage kids) also sings and performs. We enjoyed the evening there.  http://www.blackbartssteakhouse.com/rv.html. The next day we drove forever to get to Tombstone and the OK Coral. The long drive made us appreciate what it took for the early folks riding horses and wagons to get to Tombstone.  It was a very hot and dry day in May that we spend there.  We missed to gun fight and the Coral is really small. I had to wonder how anyone could miss a shooting a man when they are that close. I dont think the drive was worth the town. 
   I am a tree person that likes the green in the landscape. The southwest is not my cup of tea. That being said, someday we may go back to see some more of it. The picture Ron posted looks kind of interesting, so maybe there is more to it than we saw that I might like. That is the really great thing about this country, there is something for everyone to see and do.

We have a 2552 on order to replace our 2350. Love the size of the 2350 but am willing to go the extra length for the better sleeping arrangements and lower toilet. Overall I don't think you can go wrong with any one of the PCs. Whatever works for you is the right one.

David I know that you bought the 2552 at the show so you would not have to endure this long wait.  LOL

I am glad to hear from you and Berry, whom I talked to last night about his new 2551, how much you two and everyone else likes the 2500s PCs over the 2350.

Berry has some very interesting mods done to his unit. Thank you Berry and Sue for going over them with me and my wife.  ThumbsUp

Aimee, any changes to my last two request? Not trying to push you, just would like an update if possible.
780  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Announcing Our New Arrival on: October 20, 2011, 07:12:48 am
Congrats Berry on your new PC. Can you post more pictures of your changes.

Tuesday morning, I was at the factory looking in on my new 2552, just to see it being build. I understand how hard it is to wait this long to get the new one. Feels like a Christmas eve that is going on for a couple of months. Mine is still about a month away from delivery. I like your changes. You said you had two pages of changes. If you would be so kind as to send them to me so I can look them over and maybe incorporate them into my unit. I had about a dozen changes to the standard unit, but mostly just deleted things. I did not want the roof rack or the roof vent in the bedroom. I had them put Fantastic fans in the living room and the bathroom vents. Ship the coffee pot and the fire ext. loose, and so on.  While I was at the factory, I asked Bobby for another outside cabinet on the drivers side, like the 3100 has. He did not have one that would fit but he said he could put a metal box with a door like the other two doors on that side. Works for me, as I want it to carry the stinky slinky hose in for the 3" dump. He could do this because of the extra foot the 2552 has over the 2551. As you can see my changes are not nearly as imaginative as yours, so please send yours to me.

Thanks
Tom
