Billy,

Just buy an inflatable Skyrest.
You could then refer to your "Restroom" more accurately.
And you'll have accomodation for one additional overnight guest.

Dick and Trish,

When we are hooked up to city water, the pressure is real good.  When we are running independant, the water pressure is significantly less, but still generous enough to meet our needs including the shower.

Is your problem when on city hookup, when independant, or both?

If both, maybe the shower faucet or Hose-With-Shower-Head has sucked in something creating a partial blockage.

If only when being independant, I heard that some motor homes (all brands, not just Phoenix Crusiers) the fresh water tank is not cleaned out adequately from the scrap left behind from drilling holes into the tank for the filler tube, drain tube, outlet pipe, and gauge sensor.  The loose tank plastic can get sucked through the tank's outlet port into the interior plumbing, clogging or restricting something.  Back pressure can usually force the debris out.  You would have to disconnect the plumbing at the pump to dislodge it from the system.

There may also be a restriction in the tank itself blocking the outlet port at that point in the tank.  It can be a challenge to remove any such bebris.

So I take it, the horizontal stripes in the screen door isn't meeting the visual aid required for some of us.

Maybe the factory could send the screen doors out to a local shop to have the full body paint pattern flowing through the screen door.  But then we would not be able to find the door.   LOL

Billy, I cannot show my wife your floor mat or I will be spending more money.   ThumbsUp

We go from a picnic table to eating off of our laps to a nicely set dinner table.  Here's a pic of how we set the table tonight.  It was just too hot to eat outside at 81 degrees and the full sun shining down (lol).   Eat
Sue, you and my wife would get along well with your "At Home" table settings.   rolling on the floor

Trudy, I could easily manage with your indoor eating arrangement as it seems to be setup well and quite comfortable for two people.

But for my wife Irene, eating on separate tables would not fly with her.  It has to do with how we used to eat separately in our old motor home.  She is lovin us eating together at a regular table again.  Like most of you, Irene does prefer to eat outside, but quite often we are brought indoors due to weather or temperature, mosquitoes, or early night fall.  When we do eat in, Irene enjoys table settings done just right.  It's got to look right to her or she won't be feeling right about it.

A benefit to the dining table that I appreciate more is how the two of us sit across from eachother to play cards or a game like Scrabble.  I only wish the seating was more comfortable for longer periods.  Denser foam cushions and angled back rests (like you did Trudy) would both help.

Just for reference to other readers, not to address the situation in-full.

A couple years ago I bought affordable silver reflecting "Made For Ford Econoline" pop-open sun shades from Wal-Mart.  They cover just the inside of the windshield, blocking out the sun and cannot be looked through into the rig at night.  They store nicely in a seat back pocket.  The van door glass is not considered.  They work great for the quick daily no-fuss application, but for extended stays or storage in hot climates, this is not as good as what you people are using.

We bought similar material by the foot off a roll at a home improvement store.  I cut it to size for the main entry door step and also in the outdoor storage compartment.  In this picture, it is the brown mat in the foreground.  It protects the fiberglass surface and eliminates rattling noises too.

Oh now that is "Tops".  If I had a slideout like you have Trudy, I'd be looking into this.  You basically made a day bed with a real nice pull-up table.  ThumbsUp

Has anyone considered putting the paper towel holder over the entry door?  I considered it until my wife brought home a beautiful "God Bless Our Home" decal for over the entry way.  No way would I cover over that.

What a good looking bunch of people.  Wink

It is great to see you getting together.  Maybe one day my wife and I would join a gathering, but my limited vacation time says it would be very unlikley.

Another suggestion - Don't limit yourself with the existing floor plans.  Phoenix Cruiser is very willing to work with the customer to give them what they want.  Check out what  George and Judi designed for themselves http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,434.0.html

.......everyone is different, everyones needs are different and you need to consider what is going to work best for you.
Barry-Sue, I agree completely with your statements.  What works fine for one couple, can be disasterous for another couple.

I really like gradygal's dinette no-slide alternative which is ideal for two people.  As much as we appreciate the bench storage, the single bed, and seating for four with our booth dinette, it sure can be quite uncomfortable after a while.  I have to get up every half hour or so to get my self straightened out.  More dense foam with angled backs would make a huge improvement.
