We had our rear shocks replaced by our local CW on our 2008 2350.  At the time they were running a special on the installation, it was buy two shocks and get installation free on one of them, it was a very good price.  We were very pleased with the work that our local CW did purchasing and installing the Bilstein shocks.

On our 2012 2551 we had all four shocks replaced by a local frame shop.  The front shocks (especially the front passenger shock) were in need of replacement at about 22,500 mileage. 

We were very pleased with the ride on both vehicles after the shocks were changed.

Frecklestweety...I am not a big fan of CW and find that they run high from the price perspective but to be honest I do not think $450 is out of line.  If you have the dollars I would invest in front shocks as well, the weight on the front end of the E-450 takes its toll on the front end.  I might suggest you all so check all other fluid change schedules....I just changed all of my fluids on my 2012...... transmission, radiator, and rear end simply because of the time elapsed and  not mileage (14,000). My vehicle sits out all winter so temperature change causes moisture build up and lubricant fatigue.  best of luck

Hi everyone
A short introduction. We are Gordon & Lois James, we live in Grandville Michigan. We are supposed to take delivery of our new 2552 in mid Aug. Can hardly wait. We previously owned a fifth wheel and decided to downsize, after a year of looking decided on the Phoenix Cruiser. Looking forward to being part of this forum.

Almost an hour walking through side by side a Phoenix Cruiser with a typical production unit.  Earl and Kyle knocked it out of the park!!!

Excellent Job Earl.   This is why I own a PC.  It might not be the latest but it is well build and enjoy having it.  Wish I could update it .

we are replacing the carpet in the main living area with vinyl  (not the cab nor the bedroom containing the slide), and are kinda stumped on what to do in the stairwell? Wonder if other peeps have done anything similar and have ideas on how to handle that area? Thanks in advance!

There has been many discussions on these Bilstein Shocks on the forum and recently visited my Camping World for other items.  I stopped by the service/parts desk and inquire about them and what they would cost for my 2010 2551 PC.  Total investment would be approximately be $450 for two rear shocks installed.   Need some input from the forum if anyone has had CW purchase from them and had them installed by them.  Is there anything else I need to know.  Motor home rides okay on nice flat roads but on washboard country roads it finds the bumps and all shakes.  Don't know what Phoenix Cruiser original shocks are used.
       I  am second owner and don't know past history of my PC.   Other than the shocks, Only thing I just found out is that the air filter was changed in 2009 and it was real dirty and will be changing it out this weekend.  Oil filter and oil was changed this April along with the oil in generator. So is it worth changing the shocks on the rear?
   Going to FMCA rally in Massachusetts beginning of August and hope all goes well. Any input is appreciated as always. Cheer

Thanks for all the good suggestions!  Dale checked out that little switch on the roof to see if it was stuck or something, and it seemed to be working, that is it wasn't sticking in the closed position.  Also, the house batteries are still strong and the coach ceiling lights were working.  The electrical troubleshooting that Joe R suggested will be the next step.

Gail, you had a good suggestion regarding the small Vornado fan.  We will be bringing ours along with us on this trip for sure.

And randallandchris, thanks for the tips regarding the Maritime Provinces! I printed off your message and put it with our travel guide material that we are taking with us.

Welcome Rosy and Gordon!

You'll have questions so when they come, just ask.  There are no stupid questions.  All of us are here to help in our various areas of knowledge and even lack thereof.  In answering a question, I continue to learn too from the response from others correcting my answer.  My point is.....nobody here has it 100% together.  But we try our best to help each other as best we can.

Ron

Dale & Cindy,
Were just there, don't miss Campobello.  If in N Rustico PEI the Blue Mussel Cafe is great, Lobster Supper buffet just ok.  Cabot Trail at Cape Breton lots of construction and little disappointing.  Nova Scotia discourages overnight parking so spent a lot on campgrounds.  Anne & Gilbert musical in Charlottetown worthwhile.  Enjoy.
