Yes!!!  Hopefully you have made the right decision and will not need/want to purchase 2nd or even a third pc like some of us slow learners..

Gradgal, you must be on your way to Nova Scotia again.  Promised land state park is about a half hour away from our home as are Bob and Peg. What a nice state park.  Enjoy your trip.

We just returned from a three week trip out west.  On July 4th outside St Louis I had a flat tire. It was on the drivers side and was the inside dually. I noticed it at a rest stop.  I drove to the next exit and pulled into a Pilot.  When I pulled in, there was an a guy changing a tire on a tractor trailer.  I walked over to him and said If I take my spare off and I pay you cash will you change it after you are done?  A little while later I was on the road and 70 bucks lighter.  I think someone was looking out for me.  Turns out I had a nail in the tire. 3000 miles on the tire too...

I will tell you that getting the old tire on the back of the Cruiser is a pain and putting that cover on is not an easy task.  That cover looks pretty but the design on the locking mechanism needs some improvement.  It is hard to line up mechanism with the hole in the metal post to get it to lock on.  If Cruiser had some marks that lined up with arrows or something that would be an improvement.

Slime and a compressor would have worked, but it was 110 and this was a much easier solution.

Us too.  Last year we traveled the Bear tooth in our 2350 without a toad. We had the same results.

We also loved the bighorn mountain area.  Hope to get back there someday.

I guess I am the odd man out on this forum.  I use our Cruiser to camp/rv with our family of four.  Two adults and two kids, so space is a premium for us. 

We had a 2010 2350 with slide with a really really really really crappy air bed/couch.  If it had not been for that thing I would have kept that unit.  My wife and I slept on it and every morning woke up without air in the bed...Last fall we upgraded to the 2552 mainly for the electric couch that converts to a bed.  What a major improvement.  It has memory foam in it and is comfortable.  It also converts to a lazy boy type chair while at  the campground.  If you or your sister are over 5.5 tall it probably is not long enough.  Plenty of room for the dog to sleep with you.  I think if you are going to use that bed for months on end such as Barry-Sue I would have Paul's seating add more memory foam.

The back bed in the 2350 was on the small side, if the dog is not too big you would be fine.  If it is lab sized, I don't think it would work well.

I did love the fact the 2350 was small. I almost never used a toad. My 2552 requires that I use a toad lots.  I hate that.  I got away from towing a rv because I did not like to tow.  Now here I am again towing and almost 40 feet long in total. What a pain.  Uses more gas, requires more time hooking up, have to plan gas stops, goes much slower up hills etc..Not a fan...

The slide is great for our family, that extra room gives us more breathing room so to speak.  I think with 2 adults and 2 animals the 2350 would get very crowded without the slide.  I think if your dogs are over 35 lbs than a unit like Ron's would not suit you. It would be like squeezing 4 lbs of junk in a 2lb bag....If you get me drift...We just returned from a three week trip out west and I think without the slide I might have had to scream..

The bathroom in the 2350 is also very small.  My wife is 5 fee 4 and always said about that bathroom" there is not enough room to change your mind in there." 

Well, there you have my 2 pennies, for what it is worth.  Good luck and safe travels.

Hi All:

My children have tv shows and movies stored on the laptop computer.  They want to watch the videos on the tv using the computer. Has anyone done this?  If so, what cable do you use?  I can see a trip to best buy is in my future.

Thanks.

I suggested the sit down method and obviously that was met with resistance.  I may have to make that mandatory.  I do however like classacts ideas.  May have to try them. 

This problem though obviously shows that the Phoenix crew does not test all things before they put models into production.  I often wonder why manufacturing companies do not put their products through real world tests.  Obviously the toilet company did not do this either.....Oh well......

Thanks all.

Hi All:

Oh how to begin??  I have three males using our commode.  Naturally they stand when they feel the need to go.  My wife and I have found that in our new 2552 with the porcelain toilet that there is um how shall I say this "bounce spray off the toilet ."  The bounce  sprays on the mirror on the closet door and of course leaves residue.  Has anyone noticed this and if so how have you addressed this other than making the male gender sit when they go?    rolling on the floor

I know this may sound minor but we are leaving on a month long trip in the near future and my wife/me/kids do not feel like cleaning the doors all the time...Oh dear God???!!!*&^%$##

 Cheers  to GOPhoenix.  That was the ticket.  We used the mh last weekend and as you guessed, the fan was on low.  We turned it to auto and the system worked like a charm..

Well that explains much.  I pulled my mh out last week to go on a weekend trip.  I must have left the lights on, because the enigne battery died. Amyway I tried to start the mh using that switch.  I held that switch for 30 seconds or so and it did nothing so out came the battery charger.  I started the generator and plugged the charger into the outside recepticle and charged the battery. Two minutes later it was running.  Anyway, I thought that switch was bad, guess not. I will have to give Barry's method a try.
