Boy, I am getting old and stupid sometimes. I mailed Aimee and even replied to her before I remembered to google "ieSpell". There it was, a free download that can be used anywhere in IE. It works great

    A while back I found a way to add a spell checker to this board and did so on my desktop computer. I rank up near the top of the "worlds worst spellers" list. On my last trip, I was using my laptop and wanted to spell check, but it was not there. Now I can not find how to install the spell checker. What I have on my desktop is now under tools as iespell or I can right click on this block and pic  "check spelling". Can anyone help me find a way to add it to my laptop?  Help

The roof air is not putting out any cold air. uThe fan runs and even the heat strip works, but no cold air. I checked the 110v circut breakers. Help.

Yesterday we were in Tampa and saw two Phoenix motorhomes, One was the Phoenix Cruiser but the other was a Phoenex Sport. It looked to be several years old but in great condition. I was not able to talk to the owner. So I am wondering how many different models has Phoenix made over the years?

Billy, The drain valves in all PCs are in the same place, under the Kitchen sink. You remove the left bottom draw. To get the draw out you have to push down on the black trangle on one side and pull up on the other side, while sliding the draw out. You will see three valve, one in a cross pipe, you need to turn all three valves to bypass the water heater.

Everything but the roof air. I would only run the microwave, TV and any other large draw item like a coffee maker one at a time. You might be able to start the roof air as it draws 16 amps at startup and then 12 amps running but you might burn up the motor if you run anything else. Thankfully the days where campgrounds only have 15 amp circuits is pretty much gone. Now a days most have 30 amp or 30/50 amp in all the sites except the tent sites. If someone tried to assign me a 15 amp site, I would thank them for their time, then leave and go to another campground.

I have to agree with George, call the factory! If you start messing around with it, you could void your warrenty. If it is more than just a little thing, like you said, then the repair would be on you. Give Kermit a chance to address the issue first.

Barry, the person that will know is Carol at the factory. She can even tell you what your cost would be, including shipping. Have your Vin number handy when you call her. The other option would be to go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and buy the air mattress and use it on top of your sofa. May not be as convent but might work.

I am sorry but I do not understand what you are talking about when you say "extension to the sony monitor". Could you please explain what you are looking at. Also which 2551 did you see it in? I looked at the first few and they all have Samsung TVs. The only thing I saw that might be what you are talking about was the Tom-Tom GPS/radio/backup monitor. Thank you

Welcome Gordon,

    What you might want to do is to go to the PhoenixUSA.com home page and look at the different models and their floor plans. Then look at the inventory, both new and used. Then call Stuart at the factory and ask him what he has coming in this month or early April. I see a used 2350 already listed. It does not seem to have a TV, but it has the antenna. You could ask Stuart what it would cost for them to add the TV. Stuart is very up front with all of us and a great guy to work with.

    As for telling you which floor plan you need, that is impossible because we all think differently. I can not make up my own mind about what size is the best. The best is the one I have right now. I have had six motorhomes, 26', 34', 28', 21', 35' and now Phoenix (2350) 23', both class A, B+ & C. For parking and long term living in them the larger ones are better, for touring and being able to go anywhere the shorter the better. You will even see a lively discussion about slide outs on here. It is up to you. You do not say what the special needs, the breed or size of your pup is, it could make a difference on floor plans. We travel with two large dogs (85lbs lab & 125lbs German Shepard) and need the slide for the floor space for them. We use both the rear bed and the sofa bed at night, much like we would do if we had twin beds.

    Good luck on your hunt and if you have any more questions, please ask away. The folks on here are all very nice and more than willing to help each other.  ThumbsUp
928  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Leveling jacks and weight limits? on: February 28, 2011, 05:02:08 pm
I have the HWH leveling jacks (6000 lbs) on my PC. The factory uses HWH when you have them installed when your PC is being built. What you might want to do is to call HWH and talk to them. They are very nice people to work with. They will level your PC without the need for blocks, you just sit in the drivers seat and push a couple of buttons depending on which lights are lit on the control panel. I would not own a motorhome without leveling jacks. They will stop about 90 percent of the rocking when parked. Look at this website http://www.hwhcorp.com/straightpivoting3.html Also if you ever have any problems, and we all know we will have a problem some day no matter how good the product, just call them. The guy that posted he has a problem with the valves should call them also as this is generally an easy fix that they can walk you though.

The very best modification in my humble option is to replace the standard shocks with Bilstein HD shocks (http://www.eshocks.com/) and local install. It will improve your handling and stop a lot of the rocking when parked. Remember this is a mobile home not a house built on concrete, so you will never get it to stop rocking 100 percent.

Good find Billy. The way every thing is explained should be very helpful in this discussion. This meter is similar to the Winegard signal strength meter I referenced in an earlier post in this tread, but at half the price. Now I just have to find out which would be more accurate, One has four LEDs and the other a scale of 1-99.

Which magazine did you find this in? I looked through the "Motorhome" that I got yesterday and could not find it.

I just found the "installation and Operation instructions" here: http://www.winegard.com/kbase/upload/2452217.pdf After reading them I have a better understanding of what they are talking about. I am thinking that I may just stick with what I do now. I look to see which direction the other antennas in the campground are pointed and point mine in that same general direction. It is so much simpler than what they want me to do.

"Or, for that matter, do you know what I ought to do with that mirror?  It's got a couple of alan wrench bolts in the base that look like they ought to tighten it down, but they feel like they've already been tightened by The Terminator.  I don't think human hands are going to improve matters there... at least, not mine.  So I don't know what to do."

You are correct about the mirror, the Hex bolts do tighten the mirror. You may need to losen it, move the ball around a little and retighten the bolts. You should of gotten a wench with the PC for this, but any allen wrench of the correct size will do. It helps to insert the short end into the bolt to break the bolt lose.

I can't help you on the camera as this has never happened to me. I would just check the connections on the back of the monitor, then wait to see if it ever happens again.
