What a timely question!
For the first time in three years of ownership, I had to access the spare tire compartment today (with great hopes in my heart that the tire was indeed in there).
Horizontal is locked.  So, yes, turn to unlock it.
Then pull the handle out and, yes, turn it lefty-loosey like a screw and it will gradually loosen the cap to the point where you can lift it off.  The trick is to keep turning until the cap is free.

 Help OK clearly a newbee question...trying to take the spare tire cover off it is so tight I'm concerned I'm trying to break something. So when the cover is unlocked..the key slot is vertical orientation like the key slots to the back hatch?...and horizontal when locked? Turn handle counter-clockwise to loosen?

I was going to stash a sewer hose in with tire as others have done..I guessing no need to tie it down someway but if needed...any suggestions welcome.

Thanks!

..Mike

I have a 29' - 2015 Cruiser and the front slide has leaked since the day I bought my rig!  I have been back to Elkhart 4 times and they have "fixed" it each and every time - the last time completely taking that slide room off, resealing it, and putting it back on.  The darned thing still leaks like a sieve!!  I am on my way back yet again in Sept. - until then I have to put that slide in whenever it rains ,or have a half dozen very wet towels!  Anyone else with similar issues?

Hope this doesn't send this too off topic, but I've found these mini flashlights (Blocklites) to be very handy....

Oh, I really like them.  I wonder how long they last.
I went shopping for an LED Maglight today but went home empty-handed.  Later in the day I decided to order a particular 9V Blocklight 3-pack on Ebay HERE which have interesting 2-4-6 LED light intensity settings.  It has great reviews saying they emit a lot of light (a few say "too much light") so having 3 intensity settings could be very useful when camping.

When we were in Glacier NP in 2013, we set out on a late afternoon hike to a mountain lake.  We opted to watch the sun set there knowing the return hike would be much in the dark.  We relied on our cell phone lights which worked marginally.  Something like an easy-to-carry Blocklight would have been so much better and offer much peace of mind.

I'd like to keep a Blocklight by the entry door as jatrax did with his Maglight.  It's a great place to keep a flashlight handy.

Thank you Pax for the tip on the Blocklight.  I never knew such a thing existed.

It's rare I buy a vehicle new and I doubt I'd ever consider buying a new motorhome. We bought our 2011 2552 three years ago with 19,000 miles on it and now has 30,000. I wanted a 34/35 foot super C diesel and my better half wanted smaller. Her concern was she would be too intimidated to drive it. Now in hind site I think she wishes we had gotten the super C after seeing some.  I retire in 5 days so its going to start getting some miles on it now.

 Would I ever consider upsizing or upgrading. I doubt it unless this one starts costing me too much to keep on the road. We tend to keep vehicles a long time or high mileage. I.E. my 2012 Victory cross country motorcycle is coming up on 187,000 miles. I'm not one to trade just because of having to have the latest features.

When we ordered our 2016 2351, Earl suggested that we have it built on the E-450 chassis. I checked the weights and thought it was a good idea. He was right. We have had zero issues with the heavier chassis and it handles and rides very well.

Hello PC Family,
Well at 76 yrs of age I plan to hold onto my PC rig. 2010 27ft and has served me well. Downsized from a 33' after my Paul passed in 2012 and have enjoyed my PC. Now travel solo and it is just the right size.  Would love to have a 30' but at my age don't want to have the expense or monthly payments. So if isn't broken why try to fix it as the expression goes. Take each year as it comes and decide at the end of the camping season ask myself will I continue to the next season since  I don't have a "camping partner" anymore. But joining FMCA Penn Coachmen Chapter has helped a lot making new friends! 
I thought this question will spark some interesting conversation.

Question #1 - Just before buying your Phoenix Cruiser (your first PC for you on #2 or more), how long did you think it would serve you?
Question #2 - Now that you owned it a while, do you feel the same?
Question #3 - How long have you owned your PC so far?
Question #4 - If you sold your first PC, how long did you own it for?

A few people here are on their second or even third PC.  One person might be buying his fourth PC.  For those people, feel free to answer the 4 questions on each one you've owned.

As for Irene and me, our original plan was to own our PC until we are too old and dangerous to drive it.  That was 10 years ago and we are still on-track.  We both turned 59 this year so we hope we have a long way to go.  Keeping any rig that long seems achievable for us given it is garage-kept, and we've been averaging only 3500 miles a year.  I could see one day far far away selling our brick-&-mortar house of which it might be beneficial to throw our PC into the deal to get our price, given the PC fit's inside the house.....one fancy appliance included.  Smile

Thanks Ron,
Thinking the wife has hidden hoards of collected rocks somewhere as Lucy did in the old movie The Long Long Trailer.
If I'd known of the 2351 would have been a better choice for weight distribution but still marginal on E350.  Ford does sell a softened sprung E450 derated 300# would add capacity.
Probably should just go ahead with a helper spring and forget about carrying anything on the back.
