2 frazzled, Carol at the factory said they no longer have the green available, so I must consider an accent color.  Carol shipped me color sample of which the Sonora is the winner.

One thing that has me hesitant is that the Corian counter extensions are square.  Our wood extension has rounded corners as shown which allow me to get in and out of the PC while the extension is in-use.  I wonder if I loose that ability with the square Corian.  Here is our wood one with rounded corners.  It is already a very tight fit for me but I am able to do it, and do so often.

My actuator black tank valve got sluggish a year ago.  But I did as swiftboot Larry is suggesting and the valve has been working as it should this year.  It has me thinking that Larry might have a good tip for you to try.  Fill your black tank to the tippy top (preferably with hot water) and then let it drain with a rush while opening and closing the tank valve until the water stops coming out.  Then it might close better, hopfully solving your LED blinking problem.

The Phoenix Cruiser Travel Club is a club with a great spirit of friendship, so much so that we feel that we are a family. The club was originally formed for the owners of Falcon and Horizon campervans manufactured by the former International Vehicles Corporation. That company is no longer in business but the club has continued and is now open to owners of any motor home.

We are the official club for motor homes manufactured by Phoenix USA Inc.

Our annual members’ reunion (rally) is held in September. It is a five-day event and locations are varied to encourage our members to see the United States. Recent reunions have been held in Williamsburg, Mackinaw City, Colorado Springs, Branson, Gettysburg, Danforth Bay, Kerrville, Petoskey, Colorado Springs, Washington DC and the 2017 rally was held in Sisters, Oregon.  

The 2018 reunion is scheduled for September 6th through 11th to be held at Buffalo Valley Campground, Duluth, MN.  

The club website is:

I have started this thread as a place for questions and updates for the 2018 rally.  The site selection committee is working hard on the details and I will post new information here as it becomes available.

Sure, glad to.  I'm in Oregon so it's always raining anyway.

You might want to verify those numbers with the factory though.  I see you are looking at a 2551 and the 2018 model so there might be some differences.  Note that the 2017 trunk is different than earlier years because the spare tire was removed and the rear panel re-done.  I believe the old style is still available as an option if you want the spare but again you would need to verify that with the factory.

UPDATE.   Mats installed. They fit well... And only cover 1 level so the side areas that are a different level are not included. THey are a big improvement  and will save the carpeted floor.
Jim is doing better today. Will soon be bandage change time. And I am "nurse" Patricia then. I am a fake nurse. Price is right however. Patricia
Great, thanks for the update!

Glad to hear your husband is improving!

Don't know if it will be a fix but I would suggest putting several gallons of water in the black tank and dump with the manual dump system.  Theory being if something is jammed in the valve, the rush of water would wash it away.  Just guessing.

The light on the valve for the black tank continues to blink even after you can hear the valve close. Suggestions needed.

We did have it done when the rig was made. We also have a New Horizons 5th wheel we keep on the Texas coast in the winter and knew from experince the corinan extention was worth the $. Have found it essential with the much smaller kitchen area in the PC.

Thank you! We've added that to our custom order list for our 3100.

Ron, I wasn't sure if your comment meant Phoenix wasn't using your color or Corian discontinued it so I don't know if this is pertinent. When we bought our rig in 2013, we saw booklets and samples of tons of colors of Corian in the customer lounge at Phoenix. I would ask about a color match before spending time picking an accent color.

We purchased two "Sofa Butlers" which are similar. We love them. I see you have a 2552 like us so you can use them on your bed also. It takes a little trial and error to find the sweet spot where you can reach your stuff but not hit it with your knees when laying down.
