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

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.

Welcome.

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.

Yep, both our 2350 and the 2552 have the same issue. After a while you kind of get use to it. Like living next to the railroad tracks or in the flight path of a major airport. At 6:25 am every morning the biggest, nosiest plane takes off and fly right over our house. The air port is about 20 miles away and this is the only time we hear planes.

I agree with Berry's posting. That being said I have a nine year old Blue Ox tow bar that stays on the motorhome when not towing. When I get home I remove it and store it inside. My only complain is that sucker is heavy when I have to carry it. I understand that the newer models don't weight as much and the Roadmasters are also lighter.

I would suggest you get three locking pins so your toad is locked to the motorhome when towing/parked. You will most likely have to leave the key in the toad in order to tow it. If it is locked to the motorhome than no one can steal it without taking both the car and the motorhome. Just make sure you get locks with the same key number. I use the Blue Ox pins.

You may want to check the other end of the extenders also. I had one come loose on my other PC and the rear tire was flat before I noticed it. My tire guy told me they gets lots of flat tires from the extenders.

The outside walls are 1 3/8 inches thick. Be carefull when using long screws that you do not go all the way through the wall to the outside, It will make you say bad words.

I have two suggestions in addition to Ron's comments.

The first is that most RV factories give free tours of their plants that explain how an RV is made. If you live close to a manufacture, or are going by one, call them and ask about their tours. It is very interesting and informative. Also there used to be a three part video on "You Tube" showing Phoenix factory making a PC. I think it was made about the time your PC was made. I just searched You Tube for Phoenix Cruiser and found several videos, including one by Nexus. Now I will need to send some time watching them.

The second suggestion would be to remove one of the screws used by the factory to see what they think works. I believe you will find that now a days they are using self tapping 1 inch screws for most of their work. I don't know if they have changed the inside wall board since Ron's and your PC were made or not.
