     I understand, I retires 15 years ago and the started working part time doing what I did before, but I put in a conduction on my contract, that if I wanted to going RVing then I could go without any problems, Been with the save company for 14 years  and they still are OK with the agreement we made. So good luch on getting more travel time. I live in Peoria, so if you ever find yourself near by let me know and we can meet.

Hi Guys,

I will write something in Tips & Tricks and include pictures.  When finished, I will post the link to it here on this thread.  I am short on time this morning or I would have dome it right away.  Stay tuned.

To prepare you, the solution was fairly simple and effective.

  LOL Beat me to it. After reading that thread last night I performed the 'Cap Screw Test' Ron mentioned. All well.  ThumbsUp

Exercised the camper this morning with a run down to the DMV to 'renew my rolling life'.   I was reminded..

I also have a squeaky passenger side upper cabinet.  sad

The driver's side will 'speak' once in a while when the coach is going over unequal surfaces. I accept that as 'nature of the beast'. 

The squeak from the upper passenger area will speak out when driving quite often. The rest of the coach is so quiet, it stands out.

Will be watching this thread .

Ron wrote in another thread about leaking in the front cap:

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 have the squeak but no leak and started this thread so as not to change the subject on the water leaks which is much more important than a squeak noise.  I have a sometimes squeak that seems to come from the front cabinets above the passengers seat.   Ron, can you share with us what Kermit's advise was?   I have looked and looked and pushed and pushed and can't seem to find it.   I checked the antenna on the roof which is just above this area and it was down tight and not causing the problem.

Thank you Jim for your reply.  It is good to read that people find my Tips & Tricks useful.

I have never attended a gathering of PC owners......I am so "itching" to attend one.

The trouble with Irene and me is that it is so hard to get out with our PC.  We average one 3 to 4 week RV trip a year that is squeezed into our busy lives.  I thought retirement would open up opportunities of which it has with our other vacationing methods like cruise ships and world travel.  I did end up maintaining my profession on a part-time contract basis which further complicates trip-scheduling.  At least my work has been funding our travels so far.

Maybe one of our RV trips will one day fall within a PC gathering, both schedule and location.  It would be awesome to meet fellow PC owners.

Greetings To The Phoenix Cruiser Family and To Those Considering A Phoenix Cruiser

Here is my compilation of Tips and Tricks I have written since Phoenix started the forum in early 2009.  I put this together to make it easier for myself and others to find them.  Maybe you will find some interesting and applicable to your PC or other motorhome.

Keep in-mind that my Tips and Tricks apply directly to a 2007 PC built on a 2007 Ford E350, model 2350 with no slide out.  Some will not be applicable to different models and more recent models.  Also understand that I am a miser by nature, always trying an affordable alternative to repair or improve things.  They are not necessarily the easiest method and in some cases, not the best method.  They are simply a low cost method that worked for me.

If you plan to purchase a brand new PC and you wished a new one had something I modified on my rig, ask the factory.  They can accommodate various special requests.

John knocked that rubber boot loose once when scrubbing the roof. He checks it now every time he is up there and it hasn't come loose again.

     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.
