Trudy,

I too had the threaded stems punture the carton.  Fortunately for me, there was no damage to anything.

It is interesting to read that Billy finds the original captain seats uncomfortable.  I recall someone else saying the same, but for us, we find the earlier style ones in our 2007 to be "Very" comfortable.

BTW:  Sorry, but I do have something in the brew......  As Billy is creating with a fence post, I bought a storage tube to store a sewer hose.  But mine is made for the application with mounting brackets.  $25 for the thing, but shipping was $35.  I didn't want to share until after I mounted it.  I wanted a backup to the maserator pump, in-case the pump gives trouble during a trip, and also for an extended stay where we'd want something that drains the waste as we create it.

Replacing the barrel chair with a 3rd captain seat in a 2350 is so very easy.  Youll be done in 15-20 minutes after you gather your tools together.

BTW:  That's not my idea.  I only provided some good pics of the "After".

We have a Roadmaster Falcon-II tow bar.  It folds and stores easy as seen here.  It also folds more compact, collapsing the triangle, then folded horizontally, though I've never did that as I never had a need to do so.  I also like it's ease of hooking to the tow because the tow bar expands and contracts to help in aligning it to the tow vehicle.  Once latched, I roll or dirve the tow backwards to lock the bar in the extended position, then do all the cables and wire harness at that point.

Tow bar shown collapsed, folded & latched vertically.


Shown hooked up to my previous tow vehicle with bar fully extended, ready to leave.
My new tow Jeep Liberty looks exactly the same except my wire cable today is thicker and coily with more wires for the braking system I use, a Unified by US Gear.


I know nothing about the Blue Ox.  Maybe it has the same types of features.

It looks interesting Tom.  I wish I could make your picture bigger.

BTW:  Our 2350 does have the fresh water tank and water pump in that rear compartment under the bed, just like all 2350s.  The other items you mentioned are mounted as follows.
- subwoofer under front dinette bench
- inverter under the main clothes closet
- furnace under the inverter or fridge....I can't recall which one.

Okay, a question......What is the "maid's quarters" ?

I think you who have the inverter under the bed, have some nice drawers under the main closet.  We don't have drawers there.  Just a venting cabinet door with the inverter inside.

The reason I ask this is that I have not really found a good spot to stash 4 chairs without taking up lots of space. David
I understand.  It's just us two with a model 2350, so two chair sacks are no issue with the large outdoor storage compartment.

I've noticed a 2350 with a slide these days has a much smaller outdoor storage compartment.  What did they do, place the furnace or inverter under the bed?  Between that and the outdoor drawer, the under-bed exterior storage got significantly smaller.

Dayum, I would have bet a hundred bucks my '07 hood was steel without going to look. Just did......L. G.
I heard the hood went fiberglass long before I ever owned a PC.  I think the fiberglass hood goes back many years.

My dad owned an 87 Ford Econoline van and his hood rusted from the inside out fairly quickly.  It was a common problem on many.  Maybe Ford changed to fiberglass for that reason.

At least bugs and hail bounce off it better  Smile

The Ford hood is fiberglass.  At least my 2007 is.  So a magnetic antenna would not work anywhere on a Ford PC.

I'd opt for a hand held CB radio too.  You could then take it other places and switch vehicles too, ideal for a tow vehicle situation.

Bob,

It looks like a great enhancement for the Xantrex.

The older Tripp-Lite has this feature sort-of built-in with very a little mod I did explained here.

We have two of these camoflash, purchased from Aldi's on clearance, I think I paid $7 each.

The Tripp-Lite inverter in my 2007 also drove us nuts at night so we shut it off when we don't need 110v power.  Not just because of the noise, but also for the huge power savings (12 amp hours).  There is a little switch on the front of it.  If you pull the head phone jack from the back side of the main control switch, then that will kill 95% of the power to the inverter (then drawing only 1 amp hour), putting it in a sleep or stand-by mode of some sort.

I understand newer models have a different brand inverter, so this may not apply to you.

About the a/c, like Tom said, putting it on low helps a lot with the noise factor.  Also drawing the bedroom privacy curtain, leaving iit about 6" open helps a little too.

Told your wife????   faint That's going to significantly cut down on your personal options for spending the Grand Prize! There There   Wink
Funny you say that becasue my wife and I had a laugh over the prize money after I mentioned it to her.  Just before I told her about it, she was explaining a purchase she was thinking of, some kind of girly thing for the house.  I said after the prize money discussion....."So my prize money is already spent then?".  We did laugh hard over it.

Money is always a nice prize   Cheer  but in my case I wished PC-USA would have offered a PC related gift item.  Maybe something like one of their zippered matress covers or a leather upgrade to my cloth dinette bench seats.  At least the prize would further enhance a my PC, instead of help in paying a bill on some dust collecting decorative thingy for the main house.  Cry

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.
