Hello Tom,

Sorry I missed you, I'm glad our children were able to meet you and that you enjoyed your visit. If you are ever in the area again look me up I would enjoy meeting another Phoenix Cruiser owner!

Thank you for visiting us.
Have a nice weekend,

Took some not so great pics while our coach was in for the leak repairs. Note that after several attempts to fix the leak with extra rubber strips, a little gutter on the sidewall, caulk, etc., Phoenix finally pulled off the entire slide, replaced the rubber strips and spent several days layering up the caulk you see in the photos. They gooped that puppy up with massive amounts of caulk. They let each layer set up and added another. She hasn't leaked since but it was a major repair. To remove the slide, we had to empty everything so they could pull the refrigerator, disassemble and remove the pull out pantry, unbolt and remove the couch pieces, remove all the nice wood trim, disconnect the slide awning and the scissor arms and disconnect all the electrical components. After they sealed and resealed everything they possibly could, they put it all back together. NOT a quick fix but you may be able to get a bunch of caulk in there to stop the leak without removing the slide. The idea is to build up a wall as high as you can without interfering with the slide mechanisms.

Hope the pictures help.

Note that if you are tilted far to the side opposite the slide during a heavy rainstorm, the water will most likely go up and over anything you have in there. It hits the slide side wall, rolls down into that flat area and fills up. It drains out the first place it overflows. The idea is to make sure that place makes it head OUT of the motorhome. Ours used to flow inside even when level or slightly tipped to the left. Now it flows out. If you expect torrential rain and cannot get level and KNOW it is going to leak in, pull in the slide.

We just got back from a great lunch at the September Farm. I had the toasted ham and cheese and my wife had the toasted roast beef and cheese. Both sandwichs were great. We split an small order of cheese fries which were good also. We sampled seveal cheeses and some of the baked goods. Ended up buying way more than we should have but now we are stocked up for the winter.

We did not get to meet Dave because he and his wife were visiting a sick relative. We did get to meet  A J and Mary Kate two of his childern. They are both very nice and made us feel very welcome.

If you are ever in this area this is a must stop.  ThumbsUp ThumbsUp

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I wanted to add that we cooked our first Thanksgiving dinner in the PC and it went really well. It takes a little staging but with John as chef and me as the assistant, we pulled off the full meal in our kitchen... except the pumpkin pie. We didn't shop early enough so we had an alternate dessert and the pie will be made in the next day or so. Oh, not only did we cook the meal but the leftovers fit in the fridge!

We love our house!

We had that problem. I'll try to describe what needs done. If the slide room was removed, you would see a base board area along the edge of the coach. This board is tilted slightly toward the outside so that any water that hits the side walls of the slide room should roll right out. However, the first six inches or so on either side are not sloped because that is where those brackets go that scissor in and out with the slide. Water can fill up the flat area and overflow into the coach. Phoenix builds an additional wall of caulk around the inside corners of this flat area to keep the water out. First watch the bottom front edge while you are putting your slide out. Stand inside while pushing the button and watch the floor under the scissor bars. You can see your caulk wall there when your slide is part way out. You most likely need to add to or repair that caulk.

If you are on the road, you can tip the coach slightly to the side that is leaking to keep water out until you can fix it.

Hope this helps,

 WE are getting water on the floor under our living room slide when it rains.  Are there supposed to be seals under the bottom of the slide? I can see plywood edges of the floor when the slide is extended?
