     Had a leak from the Antenna Connection on the roof, the wire cover for the connection came look and the water followed the wire to the front of the head liner, Fill the cover with RTV and putt back in place and let dry. No more leaks.

I can vouch for Jim's comment.  Just this past fall when up on the roof cleaning our PC for winter storage, I noticed the antenna coax rubber boot was not seated properly.  I never seen any water inside, but I could see how it could happen with that boot completely out of place.

I would imagine the coax boot is working it's way out of position when cranking up and down the antenna.

Are there any Phoenix Cruiser owners in Quartzsite now? We've ordered a PC but have never been in one.

Hi jfcaramagno and Volkemon,

Dynadave may be on the right track.

Try performing this exam that Kermit told me years ago of which he said was primarily done when water got in above the windshield.  Get outside your PC and place your two palms under each corner of the B+ cap and try lifting up the B+ cap.  If it separates from the van roof, one or more of the screws that mount the B+ cap to the van roof are broken.  That would be how water is getting in while driving.  The roof resonates creating temporary gaps for wind-driven rain to get inside.  When you stop, it reseals.

I had a squeak in our front cabinets.  Kermit's inspection process concluded "All Was Well" with my B+ cap mounting screws.  He then provided another bit of advise which resolved my front cabinet squeaks.

I hope you guys find your leaks real soon.

Ron

Sorry, know this is late for your question but just got on the board and thought you might be interested in a couple of pics of the ACME dolly behind a 2910. I did not find the width of the dolly as an issue as it can hardly be seen in the mirrors. Not that I wasn't concerned on my first trip last month to Ft. Lauderdale using it. My main concern was getting thru toll booths on the FL turnpike but it turned out to be a non issue.

Thank you so much for the input.  My folks who are longtime RVers (2 class As), will be joining me on delivery.  Dad has gotten me a checklist that is very thorough, but not PC specific.  Advice for brand owners is always good.

Thank you for the reply.  Earl sent a few pictures of my coach under construction, it is exciting to see the progress.  Is there any areas/issues that need extra attention on delivery?

Good for you BlueBlaze!  I am glad it worked well for you.  It sure is a nice place for a voltmeter, isn't it?

I love ours in that location.  The only issue (Irene has) with our voltmeter is that the readout is constant.  At night the green display becomes a night light.   I like that about it, but Irene thinks it is a bit much, and she sleeps against the wall too.  I cannot agree with her.  If we had the light maple cabinetry, maybe it would be a bit much for me but I think it's great with the dark cherry.

We have the full floor Ford rubber mat over the carpet and I worry about moisture under the mat, held in by the carpet, and rusting the cab floor. I don't know if that would happen but I hope to someday take out the seats, remove the mat, and tear out the carpet (I hate carpet.) My original thought was to have a bare floor and get it spray sealed like they do in truck beds. Someone suggested I check with an installer and see if they'd give me a deal if I brought the rig in when they were doing other jobs as they could use the excess goop in our cab. I haven't checked that out yet.

Once we got the rig and experienced the heat, I modified my plan to this: rip out carpet, get floor sealed AND put Ford mat back on top for insulation. Since we went with vinyl throughout, that would leave only the bit of carpet on the stair riser and that should be an easy replacement with vinyl.

well... after finding wet carpet on the passenger floor, plans have shifted again. I am closer to your way of thinking.

The damp carpet was a bit of a disappointment, but glad i found it. Got pics and writeup in my rain leak thread.

good news however. Pulling up the carpet I found that the glue barely sticks to the carpet. Stays on the floor. Carpet peeled up easy to the passenger seat base.  Grin  So carpet is going away.

To compensate for the sound and thermal barrier loss, a two pronged approach.

First the noise abatement. Cab area is figured generously at 30 sq feet (60in x 72 in) and this noise deadening kit is on the way -

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00URUIKAK/ref=psdc_15709561_t1_B003TUNRGM

I went for the kit with roller and tape. I have used similar product, and it works very well.

For the thermal insulation, I already have Metalized Mylar single Foil Bubble Wrap. Over buy from a job. Decent insulator for being so thin, but a great radiant heat barrier. 

https://www.ecofoil.com/Single-Bubble-Foil-Insulation-Foil-Both-Sides-4x125-500-sq-ft?gclid=CjwKCAiAhfzSBRBTEiwAN-ysWKXJfme4aN18HBCg90M-5JAH717_33sZOjZMyvin7WUH6x-vZGXYWxoCDQIQAvD_BwE

""  It is 96% reflective and 4% emmissive, which means the product only allows 4% of radiant heat to pass through it.
 
To put it simple, the insulation does not try to slow the way heat passes through it, the insulation tries to eliminate heat from passing through it.
 
EcoFoil Single Bubble Foil Insulation is constructed of a single layer of polyethylene bubble insulation, bonded to two radiant barrier metalized sheets.

The insulation not only works well to reflect radiant heat, but it also works as a vapor barrier, preventing condensation which can cause mold. ""


 Cheer  I like that!   Cheer



And ordered the PVC sheet to top it with.

Once i find the source of the passenger side moisture, I will be ripping out seats and laying a floor.  ThumbsUp
