Hi Sherman,

It might help you to make up a sheet with a list of your requirements running down the page. Next to each requirement list what you think you would prefer and what you don't want. You seem to be going in circles on your requirement and this may help slow you down so you can make an informed decision. You are the first person I have ever seen that is worried about the weight of the slide out. Two guys lift the side out up and place it into the hole in the wall of the PC. Then the guy inside puts the refer and sofa or dinette in the slide. So how much does the slide weight? Maybe a couple hundred pounds, maybe 500 lbs with the dinette and the refer, both of which you are going to get anyway.

If I didn't tell you when you were here, you are always welcome to come back by to look at my PC and ask any question you have, try it on for size, or if you bring some cold ones and need to share with someone. Just give me a call or send an email. I too am retired so I am home during the day sometimes.

The best thing to do is to call the factory and ask them.

On our first PC, the 2350, it had the three drain lines in the passengers side outside compartment just above the drawer in the right hand wall. The current pictures of the 2910 show a cover in this position. Our current 2552 has the fresh water tank under the passengers side bed and the bed board has a cutout that allows me to reach in and open the valve. The hot and cold drains are under the kitchen sink on the floor. You have to remove the bottom drawer to get to them. Before you ask, to remove a drawer, any of the drawers, you pull the drawer open until it stops, then on each side, at the end of the slider, you will find a pointed plastic part that looks like an arrow. On the right side you push down on the plastic arrow, at the same time on the left you pull up on the arrow and gently pull the drawer forward. I find that I don't have to fully remove the drawer to reach in and turn the valves. I marked one side of the drawer with an arrow to help me remember which side goes which way. When done you just push the drawer back into the closed position.
Kermit told me that to speed up the draining of the fresh water tank, I should open the valve and turn on the water pump. I don't see how this will help on the new 2552 as the drain is separate from the line to the pump. One can always just pump the water into the gray tank via the sinks and then dump the gray, as has been suggested above.

On both of my PCs I found that the water was hardly coming out of the drain. So I took an air hose and put it up the drain hose and blew the line out. When they drill into the tank to put the hoses in sometimes a little of the tank plastic stays in the tank. This can then stop up the drain.

In 2011 Phoenix did put an outside spigot to drain the tank, but there where a lot of complains by the owners so they stopped doing this. I think they call this a running modification. They started late 2010 and and early 2012 I think.

While you have access under the sink, you might want to check the water heater bypass switches. The two outside lines should be open, valve lined up with the line, and the crossover line (bypass) should be closed, valve 90 degrees to the line.  When winterizing you reverse these to bypass the water heater and save on the RV antifreeze.

I hope this helps.

Billy those lights are awesome. ThumbsUp

 I want to do the same but I have a few questions also.

1. I notice that pictures 3 and 4 both look like your running light are off, so I am guessing that you have the brake on. Why is picture 4 so much brighter than picture 3?

2 What do they look like with just the driving lights on?

3. Do the new lights blink with the turn signals? Is the turn signal flasher the stock flash or did you have to install a heavy duty flasher?


I hope Kermit see this tread and starts putting them on the new PCs as standard equipment.

Hi Sherman,

First off, thank you for the nice compliment.

To address some of the remarks made here in the last few days with my two cents worth.

I have had the roof antenna on all my seven motorhomes since 1984 and have never had a leak problem. Ron has the older analog antenna with the upgrade for digital while the newer rigs all come with the turned for digital antenna. So you could see a difference in its ability to pickup distance signals.

Fantastic Fan company is one of the best company's I have ever dealt with. If anything ever goes wrong with the fan regardless of the age of the fan, they just send you new parts for free. One motorhome I bought came with a basic fan without a thermostat and I wanted to upgrade it for my dogs, so I called them and they not only sent me all the parts for free but had me call them when I went to install it so they could walk me thought the install. I will always stick with Fantastic for that reason alone regardless of what else is out there. I have put the Maxxair II vent covers on both my fans but now I understand that Fantastic is coming out with a new and better cover. I can hardly wait to see it.

The plastic underbelly is a good thing and is really strong. It would be very hard to punch a hole in it by accident. I would not worry about water getting into it and have not heard of anyone having any problems with it.

On both of my PCs, I got the ladder and passed on the roof rack. I do not like the looks of the rack, looks old fashion to me and is just something I have to clean around. I don't have the ability to keep my PC in a garage like Ron, so I have to wash it every month or so. When I wash it, I also wash the roof to prevent the "black streaks" on the sides. The ladder makes it easier to get up on the roof without having to get out a ladder. I also feel it is safer than a stand alone ladder that might slip off the motorhome. One time on the way to Myrtle Beach for Christmas break, I hit a low hanging ice covered branch at 50 mph. Really loud bang. I pulled over to the side of the road and used the ladder to climb up on the roof and look for a big hole. No hole but the satellite dish cover was gone. Never overnight a cover, it cost me $200 for the cover and surprise, $300 for the shipping. A ladder can be real handy at times.

Jerry you are 100% correct but if you are sucking the air out of the motorhome where is the air coming from. If you have the windows closed and do not have enough water in all the P-traps and toilet the air might be getting sucked out of the holding tanks. Most of us old timers know to make sure we have enough water there but a newbie might not. So put more water in the P-traps or open a window up front.

About a year ago I read on one of the web sites that a study found that 25% of married couples have separate bedrooms. I guess that they get together at times.
My wife and I don't mind sleeping apart as we are both very loud snorers. We keep our cuddle times for when we are awake, to really enjoy them.

    Looking at the current layouts for the 2910, I think they have discontinued the dinette in the slide option. It says the it now only comes with two slideouts. They must be listenning to your concerns about the side of the dinette in the slideout.

"National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. in April"

I heard on the radio on Friday that the Cherry Blossom will be early this year, maybe even in the end of March. The website should have all the correct information on it. We already have flowers blooming that normally don't bloom until late March or early April. D.C. is about two weeks ahead of use in blooming times.

What weather radio do you recommend for when hooked up?
