Our loading is roughly equivalent to others reporting.
I had the faulty Michelins replaced with Michelin XPS Ribs. After approx. 7500 miles, I can see the edges are not always in complete contact with the ground as they exhibit a distinct difference at the edges.
Generally, I inflate the rears to 75-80 PSI and the fronts 70-75 PSI.
Judging from just the wear pattern, I believe I'm over inflating the tires by at least 5 PSI, probably closer to 10 PSI.
Consequently, it is entirely possible 65-70 PSI all around might be a better choice, which I'll use next season while watching the wear.
Summary: 80 PSI is clearly not appropriate for my unit.

A very good point I was not aware of.

From what I've seen of them while in Europe, it will take a lot of doing to build the larger PC units on them. I see F450 and/or F550 chassis in the class B+ and C futures. Personally, I wish PC had them available now.

I am in NEPA and will be happy to show you our rig. It'll give you some insight.

Without an escape route, that foam can be very destructive.

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.

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.
