I wonder if either sofa bed would fit through the entry door.

Have either of you looked into indoor storage?  I am sure it's costly, but if it's only for a portion of the year, it may be worth the expense to protect your investment.

We keep our 2007 indoors when not traveling, and it really does still look brand new.  Even the roof caulk stays clean and soft.

Well stated!

If the roof is in-fact sagging, you are right to contact the factory.  See what  they say.  The phone number is on their website.  Don't call Stuart's number, but the other one posted I think is the number 574-266-2020 and ask to speak with Kermit.

One bit of with Kermit, not against him.  There is a PC owner (Tom & Betsy on SmugMug)  who was a real son of a gun with Kermit to the point Kermit couldn't communicate with the fellow.  That fellow Tom wouldn't give Kermit a change to help, instead put together a Phoenix bashing website and all.  He burned himself instead of getting help.  That was not smart at all.

Just me thinking here, I would expect Kermit to tell you to take your PC to your local RV fix-it shop for an inspection on what happened, then go from there.  In the mean time to protect your rig until then, I would get ductape or something removable to temporarily seal it.

I would say that is definitely a problem.  It appears the factory failed to apply enough caulk at the seam there.  Being that you own a 2011 model year, it would be covered under warranty, and you should be able to take the RV to your local RV repair center and get refunded for the expense.  But call the factory first after you email them your pictures.

I myself would email the pictures to the factory and ask for a tube of that exact same caulk, clean the area real good with laquer thinner and apply the right amount myself.  Done quicker than taking it in, and done right too.  Plus you'd have more caulk for later after the warranty, and also knowing what caulk to get later if it gets too old to use.

But to get a PC with a queen size bed you can walk around means at least a 29 footer, right?   Or are there other options we need to look for?
Hi GordonH,  If you are very good at floorplan design, I advise you sketch something up, a short motorhome with a walk-around queen bed, present it to Kermit Fisher (the fellow who owns Phoenix USA) and see if they can make you something special.  They have done that before, just recently, creating model 2552 for someone at a cost premium over the standard 2551 of $3000.  The factory is more creative during the November/December time of year as that is their slowest time in filling orders.

I do think the shortest walk-around queen bed offered today is 29'-8".

I've wondered if they could make a short rear queen bed model, starting with a 2700, delete the rear slide, and place a queen bed in the space of the double bed.  Yes the one person would have to climb over the other like is done in the 2350, but at least offering a huge open area to easily manuver in.  That takes off 2'-7" in over-all length, getting it down to 27'-1" long.

Model 2700

If nobody gives you the answer you are looking for with your model 3100, try this.  If you are nimble enough to crawl under your rig, look for a pair of rubber or plastic drain tubes that come out from the floor and hang down maybe 6" or so.  That would help you figure out where the drain valves, are as the tubes hang directly below the valves inside.

Don't confuse the pair with the single tube that drains the fresh water tank.

Hi GordonH, Welcome to the PC forum,

Gradygal makes a very good point regarding your selection of floorplan.  As is easily understood, there are trade-offs with each model/floorplan.  I see you input a 2100 model in your profile, assuming that means you are leaning toward that one for starters.

We special ordered a new 2350 in 2007 seen by CLICKING HERE.  My wife and I both agree, the double bed is not ideal for getting in and out from.  A walk-around double or queen bed would be ideal but then it wouldn't fit in our garage.  For us, sleeping in separate beds is not an option, but others have different priorities, which is why the easy access twin bed floor plans are most popular.

If the length of the motor home didn't trouble me, I'd have the factory make something special for us......a no-slide rear walk-around queen bed.  I don't think that special request would cost much extra.  The factory is very good at accomodating special requests, especially if it does not greatly affect plumbing and other primary essentials.

Yes, it's the wingman--feeble mind couldn't recall the name so I fudged.
Thanks for the clarity!

The digital addition to the antenna on my current PC and on my previous 2007 2700 PC did make a significant difference.
Could you clarify what you mean by "digital addition"?  Are you referring to the add-on Wingman?

We bought our 2007 2350 with Winegard antenna and signal booster during the time of analog, but no TV's.  I installed digital TV's later.  I bought a Wingman but have not yet installed it.  I will before our first excursion this year.

Ron, the tv does not have the "where to point the antenna" feature.
So how is everyone doing it them.....just point in the general direction of where you "think" the signal is coming from?

Here at my house, because of the long distance and poor landscape circumstances (I live in a valley), the slightest change in direction of the antenna, makes a huge difference in signal strength.

In my analog to digital converter box at home, it has that "Signal Strength" feature I mentioned earlier, there to assist in directing the house antenna on the roof.  I wonder if I should somehow work that into my Winegard antenna in the motor home, just to aid in where to point the antenna, before I start scanning for channels.

That sounds great.  I look forward to see the pictures and also how the top lifts, etc.  I wonder if I have seen your cabinet before, but it didn't sink in.

Okay Tom, I will have to install my wingman, then drive my PC out from the valley I live in, up to where I have a better chance in getting a signal from Willis Tower (Sears Tower), then experiment from there.

I know about scanning for stations.  I thought the feature was scanning to identify the best place to point the antenna, prior to scanning for stations.

My analog to digital converter at home is set up with a "where to point the antenna" feature, prior to scanning for stations.  I wondered if my TV in the motor home has that extra feature as well.  Do any of you have what I describe?

run an auto search and turn the antenna for best results. billy
Autosearch?  I got to find that on my TV.  That would help so very much.  I hope all my "wineing" about this has a happy ending for me.

That is a "TV Driven" feature, right?
