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.

Call Carol at the factory, she has bunches of the little spigot. They stopped installing them because of the breaking problem. She is an early bird, so call her in the AM up until about 2:30pm.

I would suggest you call the factory and ask them what they are attached to. The folks at the factory are always very helpful with helping their customers, be it orignal owners or second owners. The number is 877-754-8535.

    If you did not have a battery problem with your PW then you should not have a problem with your PC. The PC has newer technology so it will be better than the PW. Save your money or put it into the gas tank and enjoy your PC.

As the Australian say "No worries, mate".

    When you hook up your 40 amp charger while running the generator, do you disconnect the house batteries first to prevent back feeding into the converter? My understanding is that on the newer converters, back feeding can cause them to over heat and possibly cause a fire. You would then have a pile of ashes where your PC was sitting.

I followed Billy's example and replaced most of my screws behind the slide. I found that #8 1" SS worked for me. I started by using brass but way to soft and striped four of them so bad I can not get them back out. I did not have any problems with the SS screws. I could not reach under the slide's awning so they are still the original screws.

Hi George,

    Did you give any thought to flipping over the top door so that it opens the same way the bottom two doors open? I did that to several doors in our first PC so they opened the way I liked. It was a pretty easy task. Looking at your pictures has me thinking I want to flip that door in our current PC.

Everyone might want to check out this national park service web site about park passes. There are passes for the seniors-$10, military-free, volunteers-free with 250 hours and everyone else-$80. At $80 a year and major parks charging $25 a week it would not take long to start saving.
