You did good in making extra storage using closet organizing shelving.  I would not have thought of that.  It seems to do a great job too with the front lip.  Great work there Billy!

My 2007 was the last year of the exterior storage without drawers so I cannot relate to the issue you resolved there.  You might want to share that with the factory.  If they find that to be a chronic problem, they may implement your resolution into the next model year.  

Phoenix does learn & apply from owner input.  Each year gets a little better, some based on owner input to problem resolution, to interesting features and upgrades.  For example the 26" widescreeen TV was introduced in 2009 after I sent Kermit pics of the 26" Samsung I installed in my 2007, saying "It's made for the PC.  You've Got to get this TV in your PCs.  They went out and bought 26" Samsungs and featured it in the next model year.

So I strongly advise everyone share what they have done with the factory.  Some things they will easily consider, others by popular demand.

I wish they would implement the water pressure tank.  Everyone who has installed one, finds it quite remarkable, changing the entire feel of RV opperations.  If you can't stand the loud on/off, on/off moaning and groaning of your water pump, this is the solution.

Here is my low cost home-made version.  I wasn't sure what to expect so I didn't want to invest heavy.  Now that I know better, I wished I bought the one below.


A Cleaner But Much More Expensive Installation.  The Pump Mounts On Top To Further Reduce Pump Noise & Saves Floor Space
