We were hoping you were located in the southwest PA and would be kind enough to let us take a peek at your RV. Oh Well.

The PC leak issue is a little unsettling to a prospective buyer.

Thanks,
SandK

Greg & Jan,
Just as a comparison we ordered our 2552 on November 1, 2016 and took delivery on March 1, 2017.  It will be interesting to see if that time has changed any since then.

I have seen reports from other builders of being booked out well over a year at this point.

The slide leak is I believe one of those things where multiple events combine to cause a problem.  A new slide with slightly different gaskets, combined with a drip spout that has an opening in the rear pointed at the gasket.  All fixed with a small design modification.  I'll admit to being very frustrated with the problem but mostly because I could not figure out what was happening.  Once I saw the connection between the gasket and drip spout, a simple fix and no more leaks.  I believe the factory is also doing the same fix I did so there should be no issues going forward.

No idea on the other issues except that things do break or not work perfectly sometimes.  But the toilet and awnings are just parts installed by Phoenix, and every other builder.

And we should all remember words from Ron: an RV is a house bouncing down a rough road at 70mph.  (I hope I got that close to right Ron)

Picked up our 2552 today. Exhausted but loving it. Hoping to head home (unless back to Phoenix) in the morning.  Heart Shower
May we ask how long from ordering to delivery did it take?

If you live in the Chicago north-west suburbs, my brother swears by an RV repair shop in Elk Grove Village, IL.  He says they do a great job and charge very little, and are fairly prompt too.  I don't recall the name nor the address but can ask my brother if anyone is interested.

We have a 2552 and it requires 4 lanes to make a u-turn without backing up.
Interesting.  I will have to pay closer attention how many lanes it takes for us with a 2350.  It's less than 4 lanes.  Maybe it's 3.9 lanes. Smile

I think I should stop following this forum... New units with bad toilets, awnings that don't open properly, and slide out leaks.... I'm starting to get worried about my decision to order a PC.  Perhaps they are going the way of other companies or close to closing...
I think that the reliability issues seen in recent years are going to be found across all brands of motor homes.  Since the great recession, many manufactures of RV toilets, refrigerators, awnings and such, moved production to China.  Why China cannot consistently make a decent toilet, why lead is occasionally found in the paint on children's toys, why why why is another topic.  But a public forum is not the place to discuss cultural matters.

The failures may be a factor of usage. How someone uses and maintains makes a giant diffarance. Our toilet failure may have been affected by water pressure. So if you dont put a water pressure controller on the hose connection you may get high water pressure from some outside connections. My awning is beautiful.. it needs a little nudge to line up so it opens with the push button. But in spite of my driving too close to a fence post and scraping the arm which has been realigned it works beautifully and the lights under it are great.
We were at the plant the 24th, 25th  and they are not closing down. There is some new help. And they have made some great design changes that are not gigantic but are improvements. I walked all around and watched what they were doing. Love some of the new lights i saw installed.
So dont panic yet. We traded down from an Allegro Bus, now that was an operation you need to panic if you really look, especially when you are paying $350,000. cash for a new unit....
You have to evaluate what you are looking for in a camping unit and find the one that has most of your wishes and is in your price range. You can pay more but you may not get more.
regards, Patricia, and I am the driver... have driven cross country and back a few times.. did my first 50,000   now gotta do it again.
