We just returned home to St Augustine from traveling to Maine. In one of the campgrounds Brattleboro, VT KOA North, we found ourselves parked right in front of a PC. Nice couple. Didn't get their names. They are from just outside of Savannah,GA. She used to own a flower shop and her husband is trying to complete a bucket list item of bicycle riding 50 miles in 50 states before their 50th anniversary.
Was nice to see a PC in the wild!!

I see that Born free now uses the F series on their units that are 27' and longer. They really look good

Well, well, well.  I weighed our rig empty today during lunch time.

I had removed everything not considered "original-ish"  I did not remove the two TVs I had added after we bought the rig, and our 3rd captain seat did replace the original barrel chair.  My redesigned kitchen cabinet 3-drawer system is surely heavier than the original 5, and I had added an accumulator tank & wooden literature organizer, and a few other light weight items like the bathroom towel rack for example.  But I did remove everything not nailed down with exception to the dinette cushions & table, and the mattress....they stayed in for the weighing.  I even removed the 30amp cord, 6-ton jack, tire iron, even the door-stored coffee maker.  I also removed myself.  The spare tire remained mounted as I feel it should for the weigh-in.

Here is our weight empty (full tank of gasoline, 1/4 full of propane, no water of any kind in any container including the hot water & accumulator tanks).

I will take a picture of our PC weight sticker tonight and post it tomorrow.  I need to pay closer attention to what we take along on trips (including passengers) for we have just under 1600 pounds to work with.  Not what I thought was nearly 2300 pounds.

Had we gotten the optional slide-out (adding 400 pounds) we would have that much less to work with.

I've got to do a bit more research as to where the house fuses are located.
My rig is two years older than yours, but my "house" fuses are located under the fridge as shown here.  They are in the black thingy on the left side with the name IOTA on it.  The 110V circuit breakers are on the left.  The colorful 12V fuses are on the right.  The plexi-glass covers pop off to access them.  But as 9X David mentioned, you might have a resetable fuse/relay located elsewhere.  Phoenix does change things from one year to the next in an effort to improve them.  Lots changed when they placed the fridge in the slide out in 2010.

For those that live in the DC area or are passing through, this Saturday is also a free open house at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. Tons of stuff going on with free tours and activities and access to some of the techs.

If you are not in the area now but this sounds good, it might be something to hit next year... especially if you plan to be in the area already for the Intervec/Phoenix Reunion.

Our AAA magazine had an article on Smithsonian's Free Museum Day. The Smithsonian museums are always free but once a year they get other museums to let people in for free. You have to register with your name and email and print your ticket, good for free admission for two people to one museum that day. The free museums are all over the country and you don't have to be local so even those on the road can enjoy. John and I plan to hit the Newseum down in DC that day. We've been meaning to go and this will save us around $46.00. Museums are so expensive - living near DC we are seriously spoiled with all the excellent free museums so it is hard to cough up the cash for the ones that charge. Check out the website, search the list or the interactive map and see if it works for you.

Hi Ron,
I did see your post on the macerator, sadly I purchased a complete unit from Phoenix last year at the factory.  'Twas a whopping  $300.00 for pump and hose.  But, I must have spare parts on hand.

I forgot to mention that as i recall Kermit told me that the macerator is protected by a self resetting relay not a fuse.  I don't recall where he said it was located, but his first guess was that the switch was bad.

He did say that our pumps will continue to be manufactured and parts will be available. 
Bill G..... Grin
Then there are the Seaflow pumps for $70 a piece compared to the Sanicon pump at $400 a piece.  With minor effort, one replaces the other.
