I completely understand Aimee's feelings in banning an individual.  If I were an administrator, I too would find it a difficult task.

Forums are places for people to discuss common interest, and in this forum's case, the Phoenix Cruiser is the focus.  When the topics or responses to topics become unruley and/or vulgar or chronically insulting of other peoples' thoughts, ideas, and opinions, it becomes a sensitive matter to the administrator.  If the perpetrator does not respond appropriately to administration warnings, then more drastic measures are required, hence a ban of that individual.

It is unfortunate when it must be done.  I can't celebrate, but rather share in Aimee's feelings and humbly thank her for keeping this forum clean and friendly.
1817  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: white water drain valve on my 2008 29ft PC is BROKEN! on: June 01, 2012, 06:18:04 pm
Thanx Ron!! It DID pop out but not without some effort. I slightly damaged the housing and now the valve leaks a bit but at least it turns freely. Any idea what I could use to increase friction and tighten the spigot a bit? I could jerry-rig something but sure hate to further damage the housing.
The valve does snap in to seal.  With the thin film of Vaseline, I am able to get the turn-part to snap back in to seal good.  Vaseline is safe for drinking water.

Be sure it's all the way in to a "snap".

Adding for reference, This is the type I am referring to.  Not the entire assembly, just the spigot itself.

The fresh water drain on my 2007 is the same generic type used on an insulated water jug.  Assuming you have the same, you should be able to pop off the turning handle portion from the rest, and snap the new one in.  I would leave the rest alone unless it leaks or the parts are not compatible.

If the valve is hard to turn or is leaky, on my favorite water jug I simply clean it well and then smear a light film of Vaseline that keeps it turning easy and seal well for about 3 years which then I'll repeat.

My father was in WW2, stationed in Hawaii after Pearl Harbor, a Navy Postmaster sargent.  He never saw any action.
His older brother in WW2, was infantry in Europe, stories of hidding in foxholes with shells going off all around.
My father-in-law in WW2 was infantry in France....stories of bullets wizzing past his ears, and then there were the ladies.
My father's younger brother was infantry in the Korean war.
My cousin retired from USAF, a chaplin.  He served in Vietnam.

On my mother's side, they were the eneny in Europe in WW2.
My mother's brother was a German sniper, for all we know shooting those wizzing bullets at my father-in-law.  After his second war wound, he was sent back injured and never heard from again.
My mother's brother-in-law was a radio repairman for the Luftwaffe, POW'd on the US side and made donuts for US troups till the end of the war.

My Mom's family were German farmers in WW2, living pretty much in isolation.  They never learned much about the war until long after it was over.  They scrammed when the Russians invaded.  They eventually came to the USA where my mother and father met in the mid 50's when their parents, my grandparents from both sides reunited from a pre-WW2 relationship in Germany.

My siblings and I never served in the Armed Forces.

I never had the honor of serving our country in that manner.  I turned 18 in 1976, a few years after the draft was over.  As a young man in love, I quickly got married, worked a job, and bought a house, never considering to serve our country.  As the years have passed, I have paid more attention to the world around me, the history of mankind, and especially US history and it's contribution in maintaining order in this world, During my adulthood I have grown to appreciate...Greatly Appreciate what our veterans have contributed so that I could raise a family and live out my life in the greatest place in all the world, in peace.

To Me Every Day Is Memorial Day.  To Every Veteran, I Thank You.

Wow #3 ???  Gradygal, what are you doing for next year?  Something totally custom?   rolling on the floor
I love reading these posts.  It's good to see our PC family enjoying life in so many different ways.
BTW:  PC-USA offered the 2950 the rear twin bed, no rear slide, last year or maybe 2 years ago.  What length will yours be?
I always thought it would be cool to have one like that made to the longest length of 30.5 feet, but have a walk-around queen bed with the pillows against the rear wall.
I can't consider it because of storage & financial limitations at home, but I can dream.

Here is the older 2950 shown with the old style front slide out.  The slideout today would inclide the fridge.


Here is the 2910 graygal references.

Shshsh......... Quiet.........If my wife finds out I am the #1 poster here, my laptop will get confiscated.  No posting czar decals, no unexplainable money.  Nothing that can track me back here.

He gives good advice too, just like you.
But not all my advise is good.

Barry, you bring up a very good point about mixing different battery types during a shore-power charge.....or any charging source for that matter.
1826  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Battery Switch next to streering wheel question? on: May 23, 2012, 06:12:54 pm
keelhauler,

Just be sure there is not a current drain when leaving that switch on.  If left unattended/unmonitored, it could draw more amperage than a solar collector can surpass.  Especially on days where the collector does little, and then evenings combined.  The relay it trips does consume power.  But you probably have learned that already.  Just making sure.

That constant-on switch would be ideal when plugged into shore power.

The few times I mentioned we don't poop in our motor home, I always end up regretting that I brought it up.  I have to learn to keep quiet about that one.
Well, we don't poop in our motor home either, we use the toilet in the back; we also pee in the toilet instead of somewhere else in the motor home.   Grin  Grin  Grin
Really, we love ya Ron!

Bob, you just kill me.   Smile

Ron, after looking at all the models, we (read DW) have made up our mind on a 2552 or a 2910D, and we've started to make a list of things we would like to have and things we would like to have taken out.
Good for you.

We selected the 2350 back in 2007 for two reasons.
1) It is the biggest thing that can fit in our garage, with only inches to spare in all 3 dimensions.
2) It offers a permanent double bed so my wife and I can sleep together.

Everyone has different priorities.  Also it seems most people with motor homes in general, stay in private or state run places where almost any size rig works well.  We camp most often in more primatve places like BLMs, national forests and national parks & monuments, all where camp sites can be more challenging for the largest rigs.

I have to say that a longer walk-around double or queen bed model would be ideal for us, if it would fit in our garage.  And PC never made such a thing without a slide out.

Ron, since we always dump before heading home and keep water in the bottom of the bowl, we do not need to worry about gas build up. Does the 2007 PC have the clean out spray for the tanks like the current models?
Yes our 2007 2350 has the flush hookup for both tanks.

The few times I mentioned we don't poop in our motor home, I always end up regretting that I brought it up.  I have to learn to keep quiet about that one.

And Ron, you know some stuff, but in my and my wife's case, one of the main reasons we like RV travel is NOT having to walk to a campground bath house on a dark rainy night to poop.
 I realize many people think we are nuts when it comes to this one.  I never strongly advise anyone follow our method, only sharing our method as an alternative.  I wonder if our method works for us because nature calls in that manner to both of us just once or twice per day (never night) so it's easy to incorporate our twisted ways.
