Energy must go somewhere and heat is very often the result.

How I envy you. The snow-load here would kill that instantly (we had 4 feet of snow on the roof and I was watching the ceiling like a hawk).

Look at it from the hitch. It may be there and be upstream of the Sani-con (as best I know, it only became standard on 2012 & later units - I had the factory install one on my 2011 after I took delivery).
If you don't have one, you'll have to remove the Sani-Con pump to install a "Stinky-Slinky" hose (make sure the valves are shut before you do that).

As Phoenix Cruiser seems to be more a mindset and perhaps passion than the word "Brand" would advance, I'd suggest "Phoenix Cruiser Ambassador" rather than "Brand Ambassador".

Good info, Barry.  ThumbsUp
I'll be attending the Irv2 gathering in Myrtle Beach and have the Blue Ox team perform any needed service on my 7 year old Aventa II. The cost is published as $30.00, which is a great deal.  Cheers

You did good by not getting the stick-on graphics, which will eventually crack and peel. Removing them also leaves a ghost outline where they were, even after a short time.
Nice looking unit.

Suggestion:
Put your keys on a ring large enough to fit over the antenna crank handle and hang the keys there when the antenna is up.
A little sign placed on the Driver's seat won't hurt either.

About 2 exits east of the Junction City, KS exit on I-70 is highway 177. Go south  on 177 about 25 miles to the Council Grove, KS ACOE Campgrounds. There are 3 entrances off 177; Richey Cove, Kit Carson Cove Park and Kansa View Park.
Have lunch or dinner at Hays House, downtown Council Grove. As best I know, there are over 20 historic landmarks in that little town. Very quaint and we liked it a lot.

You'd be smart to Google better directions.

Enjoy your adventure and be safe (there are a lot of crazies on the roads).

We also have and like the jacks but wish each of them could be individually controlled.
I stress that you NEVER, EVER lift the rear wheels off the ground under any circumstances. I've seen too many rigs either bend or kick the jacks up when they started to roll.

We drove the Ouray to Silverton length both ways in our 2350 back in 2009. Stay in good control of your speed and you'll have no trouble at all (use 3rd gear and stab the brakes when needed on the downhills). We stayed at the KOA in Ouray and rented one of their JEEPs for a day to do a few rough trails. Make sure you get to Telluride and take the the Tram too.
27  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Incorrect heading indicated on mirror compass? on: May 18, 2014, 10:44:59 pm
I've not had good results with a mirror compass of any manufacture because it relies on magnetic lines of flux, which change depending on where you are. Consequently, I installed a GPS on the dash using a north up setting and can see my heading and how that relates to my position.

Update:
The XPS Rib 225/75R16 (LRE) tires are made in Germany (date code 4712) and 7 were installed yesterday. On the 46 mile return home, I was able to form a preliminary opinion, which is favorable. The Ribs are definitely quieter (not that the original were very noisy) and the ride seems to have improved somewhat. Tracking is at least as good and perhaps slightly better.

NOTE: The XPS Rib 225/75R16 (LRE) are summer tires and as we have never driven our unit in snow or mud, I don't forsee any issues. They are, however, rated better in rain, which we see frequently.

Evidently, the XPS Rib tires are slightly larger as they are listed as 706 revs per mile vs. the 710 revs per mile for the original LT225 75R16 tires.

So far, so good.

I'd go with the Triplett's suggestion. Too many tight places to use the Cruiser unless you use the L.L. Bean or Oli's Trolley transport. Even then you'll not get to all the neat places.
Also, do the Bar Harbor Whale Watch and Puffin cruises.

Good luck, safe travels and God bless.

Check out Oli's Trolley in Bar Harbor. They run from May through October.
We were very happy with the tours.
