I lived in MI for 15 years and was able to hunt the UP a lot.

I-75 north of Saginaw gets pretty nice and making the trip through the UP is much nicer than taking I-94 West to I-80 or I-75 South to I-80. AND you can go from St. Ignace to Mackinac Island on the Ferry.
We stayed at the KOA on US 2 West (Lake Michigan Scenic Highway) about 4 miles from the Ferry when we were there in 2008 (they run a shuttle to the Ferry).
However, US 2 west of there was closed for a short stretch and we had to go around the Cut River Ravine. The detour (Cut River Rd.) was no trouble for a 36-foot Alpine towing an Edge so a PC can do it with no worries.

Above all, have a safe, trouble-free trip. You'll probably want to do it again.

OK Mark.

Happy to help.

I suggest you make a stop at Crazy Horse. It's pretty darn neat when you consider it's being made by a single family.

As for CGs; we've not had any bad luck with KOA.

The Driving lights I received are an exact match of the PC OEM lights and bolted into the existing brackets.

I also removed the Coffee maker in favor of a trash bin. Probably a good thing too. I-80 between Tahoe and Reno is absolutely horrible and it shook everything terribly.

It sounds like Im a long way from you but if you have a problem getting a replacement; you may want to consider sending me the door. I'm reasonably certain I can repair it (I have a complete wood-working shop and am passably proficient at this stuff).

This topic may have been discussed many times but it's always easier to have a refresher. No one is forced to read them.

I've changed these before and have used a wet/dry vacuum from the outside to scavenge all the water in the tank before removing the heating element, as I'll do when winterizing the heater. I prefer to drain the water system rather than use the pink stuff anywhere other than the traps.
As for 1500 Watts (13.6 Amps) being a bit much; many hair dryers pull that kind of load without problem. However, it is the safe max I'd consider.

Have a really good trip and, as always, stay safe.

Good luck to the kids......................

Thanks for the help but I found a set (after I posted), which will be shipped today.

We are planning a trip to the Maritimes. Please post any information you think worthy. I'm sure we'll find benefit from your experiences.

Stay safe and watch out for the crazies.

2007 (on a 2006 chassis) 2350 PC.
The interior of one of my driving lights flaked off and the entire light must be replaced.
Unfortunately, although I looked and searched many places, I did not find replacements that will properly fit the mounting brackets.
Does anybody know what brand they are and where I can get a replacement (or a set)?

Any help will be appreciated.

I also have a leaking problem with mine but it's primarily when I open the valves to dump.
Consequently, I'll use a sheet of thin rubber to make a new gasket/seal, which will hopefully solve that issue. rolling on the floor

However, if I ever have a problem with the valves, I'll revert to the manual valves, stinky-slinky and gravity drain.
Macerators are not new to me as I've had bigger boats with them. They don't work any more reliably on them either.

Thanks for the update.

Why did I say Harrisburg?
I know it's Hershey.

Must be getting older than I feel.

Does anybody know if Phoenix will be at the Harrisburg, PA RV show?

We are seriously considering a trip to the Maritimes.
Any narrative of your trip you can give me will be appreciated.

Also, we like to travel U. S. highways and just off U. S. 11 near I-81 in Staunton, VA there is a KOA we like a lot. You may want to give that a try in your travels.

Peg and I just completed a 7-week, 10,000-plus mile trip in our 2007 2350. The Phoenix doesn't have the all the amenities or ability to tow our previous Alpine did but it sure was a more enjoyable, worry-free trip. Except for the Head, which I barely fit into if standing on 1 leg and don't raise my arms to wash my head, it was a good move for us (now, if I could just figure out a way to get a new 2551).

Safe travels and watch for the crazies out there.

Now that's what I expected but haven't looked at it yet. Sounds like a simple fix. Thanks for that.

BTW, we just returned from a 7-week 10,565 mile trip that included PA to CA then north on 1 & 101 to OR & WA.
We meandered back and did a lot of incidental touring.

Aside from new tires (which are terrific), a new steering damper (busted by the tire installer) and loose battery connectors, all was good except for that darned step problem.

We're having fun.............................
