Bob, thanks for the report on ride and fuel milage. I had my 2350 built on the F450 in order to get the larger/heavier duty suspenion. The one thing I have done is to put HD bilstein shocks on it. Boy did that really help the handling, but the ride is just a little harsher on the bumps.

I just figured out this morning that in my old class A Winnie with the 70 gal tank at 6.5 mpg I could go 455 miles. The PC with the 55 gal tank at 9 mpg will go 495 miles, or 40 miles farther between fill ups. I normally try to fill up when the tank get between 1/4 and 1/2. Several years ago I was crossing northern Montana and was not watching the fuel and almost run out of gas before I could find a gas station. Now I am more careful as being older and wiser I don't think I can push one of these things very far.  rolling on the floor

Ron, I would bet that the "S" stands for slideout like on the 2551/2551S. From looking at the picture one can clearly see that it is on a Ford. Grin What I want to know is what got smaller to allow the door to be moved toward the rear, allowing for the chair.

I hope Aimee puts the picture on the home page.

The values (both gray and black) are before the 3" pipe that runs from the tanks toward the sani-con and the 3" clean out. On ours you can see a cap on the back end under the bumper. If you remove this cap, this is where you can hook up the normal style stinky slinky hose and dump. You would open the black value first, then the after it has dumped, open the gray and allow it to dump and wash out your hose. This way you do not need to use the sani-con pump. Hope this helps.

Gradygal, we order our 2350 with the ladder but told them to keep the roof rack. I hated climing over them and they do add more holes to the roof. Like you I don't always have a ladder with me and it seems I need to get on the roof while out on a trip. I am always checking something up there.

Ron, you might want to get the winegard wingman to improve your TV. I added it to my last motorhome and it really did help put in the digital signals. Very easy to install and does not add to your roof height.

The heated holding tanks are the black and the gray water tanks. I believe they are 12V so you can use them while going down the road. They would not be of much help if you could only use them when plugged in at night. You might want to call the factory to confirm this as I have been wrong before. The fresh water is kept from freezing by having heat in the living area.

Congrats on your new motorhome.  Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate

I would like more details about your new motorhome also. Is this the one, the 2551 with the two barrel chairs? Did they replace the sofa? Do you have a slide out? What color did you get? Please fill us in on all the details.

While you are at it, how about filling in your profile.  Smile

Ron, any update on the status of your new chair? I am hoping to see some of your great pictures of the change over to the new chair.  Wink

Judi, thanks for the parking tip, I will do that the first day. If you had not taken the trolly tour, was there any place to park an RV? I may need this for any additional days we stay there.

    We have been to Myrtle beach and north Myrtle beach many many times over the years. We like staying in North Myrtle beach at the Travel Park. It is close to a lot of the shopping and resturants and is on the ocean.  It does seem that when we stay in the north, we are running down to the south a lot and when we stay in the south, we are running up to the north end a lot. Since we think the Travel Park is the nices campground, we generaly stay there. We have not been to the Outer Banks in many years, so i can't be of much help there.

    On Saturday Nov. 20 we plan to head down to Savannah, Ga., spend a couple of days and then start back north, stopping along the way at different shore places. We have to be home on Sunday Nov. 28. We have never been to Savannah, so I am asking anyone that knows the area for hints on what to do and see this time of year. Friends of ours have suggested taking one or more of the tours and doing River street. They also said that Tybee Island's campground would be a nice place to stay. Resturants as well as places to see would be great.  I have never had Truducken and Thanksgiving is that week, so if you know of a place to get it, let me know. Please lay your suggestion on me.

    Depending on how long we spend in Savannah, the next stop might be Hilton Head, then Charleston, SC, and maybe our old favorite stop of North Myrtle Beach, if time permits.  Suggestions at these stops would be helpful also.

    We could spend the whole week in Savannah. Who knows how it will play out. The best part of owning a small Phoenix Cruiser 2350. Go anywhere, do any thing.

 ThankYou

Ron, I totally agree with you about leaving the lights on is in the category of campground edicate. I will not ask that Kermit add barking dogs, loud music and generator noise or three times the amount of light that is already on most motorhomes.

Also I wonder about where you came up with putting a light by the propane tank? I was talking about a light that would light up the hookups. My Winniebago had one that was mounted high up on the side that lite up the hookups on the post and the area I was working in. If I am just stopping late at night, I do not hookup the sani-con or even open the compartment, which is where the light is hidden, but I do hookup the electric and the water. I try to do just the minium as to keep the noise down.

I am sorry but I would hate to see these on any camper, Motorhome or trailer. The large scare lights on some of the larger 5th wheels and campers are bad enough. When some people go to bed, they leave their lights on, with little reguard for where they are shinning or into the rig next to them. I have had to go to bed wishing the sun would come up and it would get darker in my motorhome. Sorry to disagree with you wanting all these lights. The new LED lights worry me as they are much brighter than the old bulbs. If you need more light in the evenings, you can always buy some patio lights or a rope light. Please unplug them when you go in for the night.

I am a country boy and the only light around here at night was made by God himself, the moon and stars. When I go camping I would prefer only his light.

What I would like to see is a light near the hookups that I can turn on from inside for when I am hooking/unhooking in the dark. It does not need to be a big brite light, just something so I can find the hookups.

DJM, the billy club/bat is used by hitting the top of the tire on the tread. You listen for the sound. If it is hollow sounding, the tire has air. If you hear a thud, the tire does not have air. I can use my knuckles to hit the tire and hear the sound. IMHO one must be very luckey to test it between when the tire is going low and the tire is flat.    I still knock them at each stop during my pre-departure walk around.

In the forty plus years of camping and four years selling RVs, I have only heard of one motorhome that had a flat and that was because he had 12 year old tires. The tire blew on him. He had checked the tires before starting out that day. The tread you see on the highways is from truck tires that have been retreaded and they can come apart under heavy loads and low presure. The tires today on these motorhomes are really very good. About the only way to hurt them is to run over something sharp and puncture it. Trailer tires are not quite as strong. Buses, the big desiel pusher motorhomes and some of the gas powered class A motorhomes with the 22.5 inch tires do not come from the manufacture with a spare tire.

When was the last time you heard of or had a tire problem?  thinking
