After we bought our pre-owned PC2400 Sprinter, half to two-thirds of our latches broke or would not let the spring loaded part pop out.  I found that a small squirt of WD-40 SILICONE Spray would help the survivors and I've also used it on the replacements Carol sent.  So far, so good.

We have replaced many of our cabinet latches wth these magnetic catches from lowes. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Richelieu-Black-Cabinet-Catch/3623420

We would never use these on drawers but for the smaller doors they have performed great with over 9,000 miles on road conditions that included some very rough gravel roads. You can actually get different strengths and different colors depending on the manufacturer. 

We have never had any of these pop open while traveling and when you close the door you do not have to force them to close.  They also open much easier.  We have not put them on the large closet doors but mainly on all of the smaller doors.

Yes they all break. You can ask for replacements free from Carol in parts. But my opinion, not hers, is that the ones marked brdsupply suck and all break.

I buy southco latches, who brd copied from. They are more expensive, shop around, but do not break.

Do a search on here and you will find lots of problems like breaking latches. You will also find some fixes.

We have had several of the plastic cabinet latches break and to be honest dont like how much you have to tug to get the  doors and cabinets open and the noise they make. Has anyone had problems with them and if so have you found a better alternative?

I am glad to see an owner threaded added to the Forum and the information that you will be monitoring the posts. I was lucky to be at the rally in Bend and meet you (Jim). I have a question that I don't recall being asked, but if it was, would be good for all to hear an answer.

Have either of the two new owners done any motorhome travel? Do you intended to do some trips in a Phoenix Cruiser to get a real feel for the product of your newly acquired company?

Thanks and welcom......again,
Nicki

We would like to extend our welcome and best wishes for success in taking the reins of this great company.  I had tracked our 2012 PC2400 Sprinter from the second owner to the Florida dealer she had sold it to because my research showed it was reasonably well cared for and a good purchase; and we have not been disappointed in the quality of manufacture of our coach.  We post in Escapees frequently, being long time members and we often praise Phoenix USA as being much like Foretravel Motorcoach in Nacogdoches, TX (having proudly owned one) in your construction methods of not using a typical assembly line but rather, as we describe it, as construction "pods" thus allowing custom and "custom quality" results. 

Many Class A RVers look to Foretravel when they want a coach that's further up the scale from Tiffin and Newmar; and having taken your factory tour prior to our acquiring our 2400 Sprinter, we comfortably encourage Escapees Class B and C forum inquiries to take a look at Phoenix USA, Inc. (usually link provided).

Again, welcome,
Jeff and Suzanne (aka Two Hams in a Can)

I have been a proud owner of a 2006 -2551 and a 2012-2552 PC. I love that your staff is so dedicated and helps in anyway they can. I especially like the parts service from Carol and the complete understanding of every part of the coach and help by Bob. The fact that your  PC can be customized is the biggest plus, I hope that remains the same.
I have been so impressed by your company that I convinced several others to also purchase a PC.
Keep up the good work.
I am always here to answer questions about the many aspects of understanding and maintaining a PC.
