This may be the ultimate solution to the incident....redundant switches controlling those two valves from inside.

I wish I could blend our tanks from inside the motor home because I always find the need to blend the tanks while taking a shower  rolling on the floor

Hey Bill!

I was as our local Walmart the other evening, walking through their clearance section and found this for $3.  I bought it.  Maybe I will try it on our next trip.  My only concern is if it could damage the paint or Diamond Shield.

Anyone here have experience with this type of bug screen?

I love to read the excitement of new owners ordering their PC "Just Right" for them.  Enjoy your research Thomas!

To PC owners with the latest non-spare tire compartment.
I have the new non-spare trunk, no idea about the chairs yet but I don't think I could get any in mine.  I have enough trouble fitting the two fresh water hoses, power cord and water filter in there.

That is unfortunate.  Phoenix seems to have missed the opportunity to provide good storage specifically for folding chairs and loungers.  That would have been a real nice PC-exclusive feature.  That non-spare-tire compartment would have been a great place for such items which have no good place on nearly every class B+/C motor home.  Hanging chairs and loungers on the back of the rig works, but it wouldn't compare to such a weather tight, secure, easy access storage compartment.

I have a pair of these (' not sure which) picked up in store from Target.  They're a little heavy but comfortable and fold to a pretty thin cross-section:

Check weight limits on all chairs.
I like them a lot and wished I could justify them.  I would surely buy them if we stayed in one place long enough like snow birds do.  Unfortunately they don't store in our PC like the bag chairs do.  They'd end up in our tow vehicle along with the zero gravity chairs.

To PC owners with the latest non-spare tire compartment.  Do such chairs store in there?  How about gravity chairs?  I wished we had the option to remove our spare tire & mount, and store such chairs in the round compartment, pending the type of trip planned.

Just for the record for people who wonder about the 2350 with no slide-out.  The standard a/c unit works great in over 100 degree temps, but you have to do well at blocking out the sun in the cab area, and use your awnings to keep the sun off the thermal pane windows.  Depending on how bad the heat is, you may have to sacrifice the bathroom.  Keep that door closed and let it cook in there.

And don't be opening the entry door all the time.   Smile

This is an interesting subject.

Years ago we bought a pair of nice bag chairs with arm rests which work well for sitting upright.  They happen to store perfectly in the outdoor storage compartment, out of the way of everything else in the upper shelf areas of our older design 2350.  We recently bought zero gravity chairs.  Like Barry-Sue, we store them in the tow vehicle.  We appreciate the zero gravity chairs for star gazing.

Or just don't back up onto the blocks.  Figure out where you want them, position the rig a little back from that, place the blocks, then pull onto them forwards. Cheer
Ditto, exactly what I do. DW stands up front where I can see her clearly and guides me on the blocks.
You would think that makes sense, but I want the wheel chocks on the down-hill side of the equation so gravity rests the tires against them.

I removed one hook to store our 2x4 folding table as shown.


Last year after I polished out all the markings off the fiberglass, I decided to add outdoor carpet.
I made two of them, one is for sale on Ebay, very expensive at $8.95
I keep it in place with carpet tape.  If any water got inside, it would go right through the carpet, keeping things on top of it dry.
It matches the PC-installed carpet walls, like it was made that way all along.

Will,

We still have our original braided stainless extenders on our 2007.  I never did anything with them except to add in some air at the beginning of each RVing season.  I figure any disturbance after 10 years will warrant disposing of them.

Either we've been lucky, or you've been unlucky.

Some people may not be aware that you can mix/match interior and exterior colors.  We have Sunlit exterior and Cafe interior.

  - Mike
Not just mixing inside/outside, but inside/inside.  We have a sagemint green interior but went with the gray front seats to go better with our morning mist gray exterior.

I have good mudflap clearance to the tires as well.

My mudflap issue is only when backing up onto Lynx blocks, the mudflap hangs so low that it gets pinched between the Lynx components and tires.  I like the low hanging mudflaps so I would never consider trimming them shorter so I work around the problem by hand which is not the safest method.  As I mentioned before, to do it right I need to come up with a simple hook system to hold the mudflap up and out of the way when driving up on the leveling blocks.  This way everyone can stand clear.

Ron, I heard you stopped to visit Don Keller,  and there I was a few miles down the road.  
Yes we stopped by Don to meet for the first time.  We bought our PC through East Acres back in 2007 but was never out that way until this past fall.  We just had to get off the expressway to drop in.  I forget how old Don is but he's no young pup, yet sharp for his age.  It was a great visit.

I mapped Bellingham and wonder if we drove through your town to get back onto the expressway.
