I couldn't understand what the airbag problem was.  I recently learned for my own curiosity that the explosive material inside would become more explosive with humidity.  The explosion becomes so strong that the airbag housing breaks apart, turning into a grenade of flying shrapnel.

I am glad you got the slide-out pulled in fine.  I agree that it was most likely an unused screw left behind during the construction of the rig, as we all have had a few extra screws and such found in strange places.  I advise to make sure nothing else foreign is in the area that could cause damage.  I have heard of wood and metal shavings laying around from drilled holes, that debris getting into places that later cause damage.  Not necessarily on Phoenix Cruisers, but on motor home slide-outs in-general.

We don't have a slide-out.  Is there access to the space in between the slide-out and main floor & walls to inspect and clean?  That would be the ideal time to make sure everything is assembled properly, screws are properly tightened, and all that.  I suppose it wouldn't hurt to check/tighten screws every so many miles.  Our rig needed a good going through after around 25,000 miles.  Screws get loose from all the road vibrations.

If there is anyone in the Peoria area that would be willing to let us take at look at your motorhome we sure would appreciate it.  
Hi Randy and Charlene,

We are a far drive, 2.5 hours away from you in Dundee, IL and our PC is now 8 years old.  We are half way to the factory.  Though the differences are very minor from 2007 to today, I would assume you'd want to see a rig and maybe a particular model that is more current.  Our rig is a 2350 on the older Ford chassis as seen HERE.  You are welcome to come over and pick through it.  We could review the differences to a new 2015.

I've had a pile of rattles to fix over the years, most recently involving the cabinets in the B+ cap area.  Like many others, my list of fixes would be very long if I documented them.  They are so easy to fix.  What to fix is the challenge.  The most irritating one was the crank-up Winegard antenna on the roof that took so many years to figure out.

Interesting fix there Dick.

Thanks Jim.

I got the same reply when asking the seller directly.  I think the seller does not have the rig near him.  I wanted to know dimensions without the mattress.  And he leaves out the depth.

It could be used as a dog kennel for the right size dog (s), lifting your dog up there.  A cat might get there on their own.  I always read about people wanting "Pet Space".  That would be their own, happy to see around being up high and you happy to have some walking room.  Cat or dog (pending size), there should still be some decent space for bulk storage.

I know there are women out there who travel the country quilting and such.  They love the over-head bed area of most motor homes for their light weight bulk.

I am trying to get the dimensions from the seller to see how big a child it can accommodate.

Hey, I finally found a PC with the bed in the B+ cap, a very rare find.
It's a 2002 2350 but called a 23RB.  So I finally got to see one.  Some people need the over-head bulk storage or the sleeping quarters for a child or pet(s).
I understand the factory can still do this upon request.  I would request it to be 100% fabric up there, no wood and a thinner memory foam mattress.

You will find that sitting on a mattress is going to be very uncomfortable compared to leather covered memory foam dinette base cushion material.  You will be fighting it with every move you make.   Our dinette initially had cloth-covered standard foam which would be better than sitting on a regular mattress.  That had issues we resolved by replacing the cushions with leather covered memory foam cushions.  Laying on our dinette setup as a bed is quite comfortable for me who appreciates a tight firm mattress.  But if you love a soft cradling mattress, then the mem-foam will be an issue.

I suppose you could always order it later, but then it gets complicated and expensive.  Your best deal will be right now before you take delivery.

Call the factory and you will get the right answer.

There are so many beautiful roads in our country.  It is this type of road that I really enjoy our suspension upgrades so I can enjoy the scenery rather than concentrate on the double yellow line.

Thank You for sharing!

I wonder if you could order one of the beds with a special thinner memory foam mattress, the same used in dinette seats base cushions, and have special backrest & side cushions to make it a couch/day-bed.  This way you have a nice place to sit and relax during the day with a huge ottoman across.  When it's bed time, simply toss those cushions up front.

Just a thought for a low cost option.
27  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Rear view monitor position on: May 29, 2015, 12:51:58 pm
The only issue I have is when I get the monitor just right the next time I get up to go to the back of the coach it never fails I "whack" my head very hard on the screen!  That is life!
Oh Yes!  That was my problem which was my primary reason to move the monitor to the mirror position.  No more head whacks since.  The change works out real well.  Also, in the original position I could not pivot the screen to the driver adequately.  I still can't get it exactly perpendicular, but so much better than before.  I also have a less obstructed view out the windshield because the 5" monitor is smaller than the original mirror.

In this picture, you can see where the monitor was originally mounted into the headliner.  Note the hole and flattened material.  I'd like to make a shallow sunglasses tray up there but have yet to get to it using some old kitchen cabinet drawer material left from my reconfiguration project HERE.  I need to be sure I don't hit my head on that either.  I was even thinking of exploring a junk yard to find a headliner sunglasses tray from another vehicle.

Given that Sparky stated "Red" marker lights with black round rings, the only ones I have on our 2350 are recessed into the rear wall.  The only way the fixtures/lenses could break is if they get pierced by something while backing up.  I also wonder if he is describing his low rear tail lights.  Hopefully Sparky will reply to clarify exactly which lights have stopped working.  Whether high up or down low, the lights are LEDs that don't burn out.  It sounds like a wiring problem to the lights.  Maybe water got inside them and they failed internally which can be easily tested.

The only time I would not tow our Liberty is a trip like Alaska where I think we would be on the move most of the time, where a base camp wouldn't see much use.  Alaska is a place where you spend the night wherever you happen to be at the time.  Move on after you are done with sleep & breakfast.

If the lights them self are faulty, I am sure the factory would be happy to sell you what you need at a reasonable price.  But Sparky mentioned that more than one light went dead, that makes the wiring suspicious, not the LED light fixtures.

Other than looking below, I would also consider dismounting all 5 lights and see if you can inspect the wiring in between them.  They could share common switched power and ground wires.  You can't rule out the possibility that the mounting screws for the ladder and back-up camera have damaged the wires.
