16  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Advice regarding purchasing a PC. We are new to the PC and B+ World on: January 21, 2012, 03:06:35 pm
My wife and I went to the factory a year ago determined to purchase a new Model 2551. We had just sold our 37 foot 1996 Beaver Monterey and wanted to downsize to something more manageable.  We were into the 2551 until we saw the new PC Model 3100.  We love the features and benefits ot the 3100.  I can use the table for computer work and reading while she uses the sofa for reading and tv.  We carry an electric skillet and pots and pans under the sofa in the drawer.  We like Zero Gravity lounge chairs and we carry two behind the drivers seat.  We had custom covers made for them and they stow perfectly.   

I was ashamed of all the excess junk and stuff we had carried for years in our first coach.  We now have close to 17,000 miles on our new home and we still haven't filled all of the storage compartments.

We also love the fact that we do not have to open the slide everytime we stop overnight.  We spend a lot of time on the road dry camping.  We have learned to conserve our resourses and storage tanks so that we can dry camp 5 to 7 days as we travel.

Good luck on your search.  You have come to a great little company in Phoenix Cruiser and family.

We are sitting in our driveway getting ready to head to the Tampa RV Show in the morning.  I'll hook up our city water to double check, but I think the problem is only when using carried water.  I'll check and repost. 

Our in house shower hose is quite flexible and easy to use.  We love it/  I'm going to look at the Tampa show for a solution to the hose issue   Looking forward to seeing Stuart, Amanda and the Phoenix folks. as well as the 2012's.  Gotta check the hoses on the new models.  Maybe Stuart will want to trade them out.  "That is hoses" not RV's.

Trish and I carry two Zero-Gravity chairs.  We stow them behind the driver's seat in our Model 3100.  They fit perfectly.  We had a local boat cover fella make color coordinated covers for the chairs.  He put velcro strips on the sides to hold the chairs together as we travel.  He also put carry straps on the sides for us.  We slide a small folding table in between the two chairs.  It is easily accessible for inside or outside use.  We put our sofa pillows between the chairs and the slide when traveling to cushion their rocking for and aft.  It is a neat set up.

Our shower head only has water running through about half of the holes when showering.   Do any of you know how to increase the pressure?

Also, do any of you know how to get the shower (replacement) hose to be more less rigid and more flexible?.

Trish and I love our sunscreens.  We purchased them through Amanda at the factory.  They are great for air circulation inside the motorhome.  They are very easy to install.  We dry camp a lot so at night we simply raise the side windows high enough to prohibit anyone from reaching inside to open the door.  We roll them up and stow them behind the sofa/bed in our Model 3100.  We highly recommend them.

Why are you not using the grinder/hose assembly that comes standard with the PC?  I find it a joy to use compared to hooking up the 3" hoses.  I painted the cap bright "John Deere" yellow as a reminder to move it after forgetting and blowing sewerage over my shop floor.  I think once was enough, but I will never miss the yellow cap ever again now.

Trish and I have a 3100 PC.  We have two zero gravity chairs that we carry in the area behind the drivers seat and slide out.  We had a local canvas/boat cover shop make storage sleeves to fit over each one.  He installed carry handles on the sides of the sleeves along with velcro ties to lock them together durning transport.  We stow a little foldiing table between them while traveling.  The system is clean, neat, and orderly.

We have a  Direct TV satallite dome on our PC roof.  Do any of you know if Direct TV works in the New Brunswick/PEI/Nova Scotia regions of Canada?

Also, are there any other PC owners that plan to be in the above areas of Canada during the month of August and early September?

We'll be looking for your PC when we get to PEI.  We appreciate all of your feedback to our questions.  You mention to PN you if we have any other questions.  What does tha mean and how do I do it?  Also, we are Verizon cellphone customers.  What are the ramifications of cell phone and internet usage in the Eastern Canadian Provinces?  Any tips to help avoid high charges?  Thanks for your help.  Dick

Trish and I plan to leave Ohio in the not to distant future and head Northeast to the Eastern Canadian Provinces.  We are curious as to whether any of you would be willing to share any info regarding campgrounds, resturants, and activities that you would recommend.  Any travel tips as well as do's and don'ts will be appreciated.

My wife and I plan to go to the New England states and Nova Scotia this summer.  Do any of you have any experience with the best time frame that we should be thinking about ie.:  June, July, August or early September?  We plan to spend about a month on the road.  Have any of you gone by ferry from Maine over to Nova Scotia with your PC's?
27  Main Forum / General Discussion / RV Covers on: March 04, 2011, 01:17:06 pm
We own a 2011 Model 3100.  We spend time in Florida at our home while our RV is parked/stored nearby.  Do any of you have any experience with the RV Covers like Camping World sells.  We'd like to protect our paint job from the intense sun while it is parked in storage.  Any comments or ideas?

We are Florida bound in about 5 weeks and I definitely want to add the sun screens to our 3100.  We had them on our class A and loved them.  Do you have a contact?  About how much should I expect to pay?  Thanks for your input!

I am looking for a folding chair to use when watching TV and the idea of storing it behind the Driver's seat appeals to me.

But before I buy anything, I'd like to know what a "Zero Gravity Chair" is.

Can anyone give me a source?


They look like a folding patio recliner.  We purchased ours at Wal-Mart or Lowe's.  You should pay under $50.00 for one.  They have aluminum frames and webbing from the frame to the seating material.  You can go from a up right position to a totally reclined position by pushing on the foot bar or the arm rests.  Most have a locking mechanism to hold the reclined position.  They are very comfortable.  Good luck on your search............just ask in the patio dept about zero gravity chairs!

I don't know of a drain tube available.  We too get the water run-off from the A/C.  The rain gutter diverts it rearward and then out, but it's a hit or miss if it drips down to the ground or down the side of the RV.  It depends on the angle of the parking pad.

You might want to try a plain old wooden pinch type clothes pin attached to the rain gutter at the approx drip point.  The water will go to the end of the clothes pin and drop off instead of running down your paint job.
