and the vacu-bonded wall sections.
Ron, I'm not sure that is true anymore.  I was told they used to do them in house but now have them done elsewhere.  When we were there they had a number of wall sections in stock with markings on them that indicated they were just delivered.  That is not definitive but I remember being surprised when we discussed the wall sections at the factory.  The equipment to make those seemed larger and more complicated than a shop the size of Phoenix could have.  But I could be wrong.

Interesting jatrax!

My memory is cloudy on this.  When we were last there 1.5 years ago, I thought I seen a panel laying on a huge table in a vacu-bond bag, in the curing process.  Maybe things have changed since then.  And then again, maybe I just "thought" they were making wall panels.  Maybe they were repairing or modifying a panel on-site.

We dumped the mirror and added a stainless sheet.  It reflects enough light to sort of duplicate the effect of the mirror but also allows us to stick a bunch of magnet held stuff on there.  Works very well for kitchen utensils and so on.

To those of you trying to decide on a color, do a nationwide search on all late model Phoenix Cruisers for sale, check the ads in RV Trader, RVT, Craigslist etc., and look at the colors in the ads; this will give you an idea of what to expect. Be aware that the colors will change or differ depending on the camera, lighting , and other factors, but it should help you decide what you like best.
Your advise is excellent for people deciding on a color for their PC.

Back in 2007 when we were deciding on the full-body exterior color for our PC, we really leaned heavily on the green color offered at the time.  Unfortunately the Phoenix sales brochure did not show one, nor could we find any PC on the internet in that full body green color.  While at the factory, we asked for pictures of the full body green.  The only offering was a printer copy of a copy of a photograph which was impossible to work with.  We did see a lower body green color in-person while there which did not fancy us.  So we decided on the next best color preference which was the gray as shown on the cover of the 2007 brochure.

Maybe 3 years later, nice pictures of the full body green started showing on the internet.  Our hearts sank when we saw them.  We love that color so much.  We should have gone with our instinct.

Our full body gray colored PC which we like.


A full body green colored PC which we love.

Just a short update on our 2552 delivery.  I don't want to jinx the delivery, but so far we have not found a single issue.  Worked on the unit all day today,  packing and testing all of the systems.  Last night's temperature was in the low 20's, I set the furnace at 60 degrees and used the tank heaters - no problems.  It's raining today and it's supposed to warm up later this week,thank goodness!!!

Good news!  Sorry we couldn't connect in Elkhart.

Our 2018 has the fresh water drain accessed through a hatch under the passenger bed. The hatch is just a piece cut out of the plywood. I leave this hatch cover on top of the mattress when the drain is open as a reminder. I drained a full tank while doing other chores so not sure how long it took, hence the visual reminder of "Hey Dummy, the valve is open!"

Also check the position of the battery disconnect switch, located to your left as you enter the coach, near the step well.
