Thanks all for the nice comments.  I just told my wife of this contest and that one of our pics was voted "best".  She was happy and grateful to all.   Heart Shower

Great Pic, Ron and the one I picked. As a photographer I would make one suggestion - Photoshop out the piece of your red car - it detracts from the overall effect.  Bill
I was going to email Aimee and suggest the same......Photoshop the car and tow bar out from the picture.....and remove my rear licence plate, making the area 100% dark gray.

I picked my "Arches" picture with the orange/red rock behind the motor home, for 3 reasons.
1) The lighting on the motor home was perfect with no reflecting sunlight.
2) It showed that Phoenix Cruisers can tow fun-mobiles for increased fun-factor.
3)  I felt that view of my 2007 rig accurately represents a 2011 because nothing on that side of a no-slide rig changed since 2007.  The winning photo shows the passenger side with my box awning and big single door for rear outdoor storage.  But the awning was replaced a few years ago with a motorized one with those vertical side rails.  And rear storage is a drawer and door combo since 2008.

Just wanting to accurately represent a 2011 model.

PS:  Upon my request, Aimee did Photoshop my wife's feet out from the original picture here.


For reference, here is the picture I voted for.

We are leaving Saturday June 25th, with hopes in staying somewhere around Warren Dunes or South Haven, most likely in a private campground given the weekend.  If private places are full, we'll wing it anywhere legal.

But just wait 'til I get some photos on our next trip running the coast roads of lakes Erie. St. Claire and Michigan, which starts Tuesday morning (you'll be sorry). Cowboy
Bring it on Buddy!  I am up for the challenge, ha, ha.

Hopefully our Lake Michigan trip this summer will present opportunity to compete with all for next time.  Good PC picture moments are hard to come by for me.  Most often, we are pulled off the road to enjoy a scene.....then walking back to the motor home and ...."Ahhhh, I got one".

It is an honor to win this first competition.  Thank you all.   ThankYou

We will be home this Memorial Day weekend, time with local family and working around the house.  But I am "REALLY" itching to get away for a weekend in our PC.

it runs at a fast speed all the time. The only difference I can tell is that the sound changes to a deeper sound as the load increases.
The same with my 2007.

jdw, Your 2011 must be wired differently than my 2007.  My kill switch by the entry door, kills everything "Including" the inverter.

This has always been an interesting subject matter to me.

With our 2007 2350 with the earlier Tripp-Lite inverter, we most often dry camp, so our coach batteries are closely monitored.  Without getting into the nitty-gritty of it all, I always shut the inverter down dead unless we need 110v. ADDING: "This is done by reaching in and flipping the switch on the inverter itself."  If I use the battery disconnect switch by the entry door to conserve battery power, that kills more than the inverter.  It cuts off all 12v as well, which means our fridge goes dead too.  And that is a real bad thing to happen while we are out for the day.

If you own an older PC with the 2000 watt Tripp-Lite inverter, and you dry camp a lot, you may find my topic on this subject of interest.

Agreed!  Thanks for the research.

I always understood the warranty begins when the vehicle gets titled.  There might be a max time allowed after the vehicle production date or year.  For example, a dealer might have a brand new 1965 Corvette in his show room that he intentionally never sold so it never got titled.  I can't imagine GM honoring a new car warranty once it gets sold and titled the first time.

It would be good to know what the law is on this.

Okay, that's different.  I would think now that will fall in the direction of Phoenix USA.

Let us know the outcome.

I am just guessing wildly here.

In the Elkhart area where the PC factory is located, many RV companies went out of business in 2008 with their stock sold at auctions.  I know Kermit bought a bunch of 2008 Sprinter chassis then, and offered those rigs at the same discount he got, to make great offers during very hard RV times.

Maybe Kermit bought more product at auction, not just chassis.  Maybe ovens, fridges, TVs, who knows?

But it really should not matter.  The appliance manufacture should honor the warranty regardless of when it was made.  It is based on when it got sold to the consumer.  The same applies to those Sprinter chassis.

Walmart, Sears, Target, Carsons, Ford, GM, it doesn't matter when the product was manufactured and how long it was stored in a warehouse, the warranty begins when the consumer buys it.

I did a voltage check on my hitch connector and found all wires dead without ignition.  I wired to the orange wire in there which came active with the ignition switch on.  It was quite easy utilizing the same screw terminal in the hitch connector.  To get there, I fished my wire through the same black slinky wire jacket and taped wire bundlings.

I easily pushed the passenger side backup light in toward the RV, then pulled the wires out through that hole, making it very easy on my back to solder and shrink-tube a good splice in place of the crimp connection.  Unlike the driver side, the passenger light had just one hot lead to splice to.

I also utilized the in-place wire hoops in the area to route the wires safely between my switch and lights.  The installation looks factory-like....maybe better because of the solder joint & shrink tubing insulation.

Gordon,

You "DO" have a testimony worth sharing.  I would love to see your unit and also what it tows.  There are not many Sprinter based PCs out there, so I hope you get a website setup on yours.  Then I'd have a place to direct others to see one...... LOL

Welcome Aboard!

I am curious as to the year of your Sprinter chassis.

Ron

One minor disappointment...... I thought I could turn on the backup lights without a key in the ignition but that is NOT the case.  I got power from the hitch connector for convenient fuse protected 12V.  Unfortunately none of the hitch wires offer power all the time, so I settled for ignition controlled power.
