Giving the dealer name might help it find a new home. All we can tell is that it is somewhere in the Oregon Mountains based on your profile location. If it when away for a week or so, they might of used it to go the dealer RV show in Louisville, Ky.

My wife and I have always seemed to collect strays.  Not to excess really but we have rarely gone and looked for a 'pet', mostly they have found us.  I think 4 cats and 2 dogs was our max and we are at 1 dog and 2 cats at the moment.  Anyway, it's not like we are saving the world but we do have a soft spot for a critter just looking for a good home.

Anyway, about 4 times a week we drive past our local RV dealer.  And sitting in the front lot since August I think is a Phoenix Cruiser 2400.  We even went so far as to stop in and ask about it, but oddly that day it was missing from the lot and neither the salesperson nor his manager could tell us where it was.  But a week later it was back, and we did stop in and take a tour.  In great shape considering it is 2010 model, but by that time we had a visit to the factory scheduled and have now ordered a 2552.

But every time we drive past that poor stray is sitting there in the lot.  Front and center and right by the road.  So sad, just looking for a loving owner who will take it home and give it the care and attention it deserves.  So far we have resisted, but I feel so bad driving past...............  I don't have any room I say, the only spot in the driveway is reserved for a new 2552.  But it looks so sad..........

Surely someone wants a stray that I know will be loyal and loving?

Our 2552 had no fan in the forward vent. I had my local RV guy replace the vent with a Fantastic Fan and he picked up power from the ceiling light just forward of the vent. I think he had to dig a trench from the light to the vent.

Last project for me for a while, saw this on another coach and liked the way it looked.

Solved my problem. Talked with PC this morning. My unit, which I purchased in Oct., was up-graded to a 15K unit. At that time only 13.5K units had heat strips. I'm good with that. A small ceramic heater will be just fine, as others have mentioned. Many thanks for your help and responses.

We recently replaced the two MCD shades in our living area with Pleated day night shades. Although the MCD are easy to use and practical we did not like the way they looked with our new wood valences.
We have owned coaches in the past with Day Night shades and really like the look. With that said I've had to replace the strings twice in the past, not very enjoyable but it was after several years of use.
We're keeping the MCD shades and hardware just in case.............

Hello Sandy,

We use a small space heater as supplemental heat. It's very quiet and does a good job keeping the living area warm.
Last night it was snowing with the outside temp around freezing and it was nice and warm in our 2910.

We don't have friends with a big yard in the Key's but we do have friends that spend a month and sometimes two at Sunshine Key in Big Pine Key.

I think it is an Encore Park.   They offer a special rate at the Tampa RV Show for the months of October and November.  I think our friends have purchased this special for the past 4 years.  They plan on going again in 2017.

We have not been to this park but they love it.

I know you are trying to sort out why the heating elements in your AC do not work but we found out in a previous camper a portable electric heater is capable of putting out the same amount of heat as the AC heating coils.  The small portable heaters are typically much quieter and allow you to move the heat to where you need it most.  These are relatively cheap and available from many sources including Walmart.
I totally agree.  Heat from below, placed in front of where the cold comes in from worst which is the cab area, does a much better job and so quietly too.

Still, it would be nice to have the roof heater working, assuming you have one.  If you don't have one, I don't think you are missing much at all.  As I recall, our heat strip was optional.  Back in 2007, I think we paid extra for it, but it might have been part of the "Premium Convenience Package" back then.

Your A/C unit comments had me laughing out loud.  I figured someone would chine in and say something like you did.  But I didn't expect it to be so entertaining.  When my brother told me about his, I wondered how loud his was before, because like yourself I too find it ridiculously loud when it is mounted properly.

My brother has an Onan 3000 in his little 21' rig and he just bought a 1000 watt Honda so he can watch TV in peace and quiet.  I think every motor home with an Onan and roof A/C should also include one of these mounted on the wall.

And a Very Merry Christmas to you too!
