I do have to say one good thing about our color choice.  It surely hides the dirt well.  rolling on the floor
Our rig was a total mess when I took this picture, but it doesn't stand out much.  The back wall looks clean but it was horrible.

Thanks RVCamping for all those details.  It is very interesting.

Back in 2006 when shopping for a new rig, the Carrigo was initially on my short list.  I too noticed how it's B+ front cap is the same used on PCs.  I also noticed the optional front bumper cover on our PC is also on other brands of motor homes of that time period.  But the Phoenix rear wall with integrated spare tire compartment is a Phoenix exclusive item.

I read long ago, a good grease for potable water valves is uncontaminated Vaseline.  It does not last forever though.  I use it on the drain valve of my fresh water tank and also the shower head water cut-off button.

Me too.  But if you don't know which end of a screwdriver to hold, maybe the warranty will be of value.

I agree with everyone's comments.

Our PC is now 11 years old with only the standard materials in the cab area.  We never give a thought about the noise level while cruising.  We find it to be just fine.  BUT when climbing and engine braking, when the engine rev's up under those conditions, Irene and I have to raise our voices to communicate with each other.  Also, a common complaint, the floor gets hot near the passenger.  SO, I would think if Phoenix has an option to increase insulation/sound deadening on the cab floor and engine housing, to consider the upgrade.

I found the noise level on the high side in both of my PC's.  I did extensive additional insulating of the cab area on my 3100.  Did the doors, floor, additional dog house, and the hood area.  I think I reduced the cab noise by upwards of 45%.  I would order any additional insulation you can get.  I never had any heat issues in the cab area (passenger) that some owners claim.

Hi Cats.  Don't know which company(s) you've spoken to, but I have full-timer coverage through National General (1/888/293-5108).  I never thought to ask for those kinds of details that you speak of and simply have been going along on the understanding that they replace for the dollar value of my rig.  I thought that I would get the money and shop for whatever I wanted for a replacement.  Thanks for the heads-up as renewal is coming soon and I would probably do well to understand just what I do and do not have along those lines.

Hoping anyone out there could share their thoughts and opinion on the EasyCare Service Contract offered by PC.  DO you think it's worth purchasing for a new PC or do you think it would be a waste of money considering the quality of the coaches? 

Thank you !!

fandj - that is a big OUCH.  I had heard from Dave Ponder that the new version might be in May 1st - they are supposed to send me one.  He did say they keep moving the date so he was not certain about it being in 5/1.
