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.  

Ideas??

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.

Jim
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.
