Ron, I have been looking all over for a towel rack similar to the one you used in your 2350's bathroom and can't find one.  May I ask what brand it is and where you might have bought it?  We love many of the improvements you have done to your motorhome.  We picked up our 2350S late in October and love it but are trying to make some improvemets.

Hi Margie,
I asked my wife where she bought it from, but she couldn't say for certian.  She said it was either Walmart, Target, or Meijers, but could not completely rule out a dollar store either.  Brand is unknown.

Thanks for the compliments.  This post has been a huge hit with PC owners.

Ron, What's the deal with Dancing with the stars?  Judi
My wife and I had been taking ballroom dance lessons at a Fred Astaire dance studio for 1.5 years, ending last August.  Our neighbors found out about it, and we suddenly found ourselves competing in a fund raising event for PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) of Elgin, IL.  It is a homeless shelter in our community, here:  www.padsofelgin.org

We are competing against 5 other couples.  Each couple is assigned a dance instructor (also volunteering) who coreagraphs a dance routine to a particular song.  We are doing the Rumba.

The dance competition is the evening's entertainment.  But our mission is to seek sponsors too....basically everyday people donating to the homeless shelter, through a website using their credit or debit card, tax deductible of coarse.  They select which dance team they support with their donation.  My wife Irene and I are dance team #5.  Details of the event are here:  http://www.padsofelgin.org/news_events.html

It has been very intense training.  We are amatures trying to perform as professionals.  In our early 50s, we are being tested in a few different ways, physically and psycologically.  The Rumba we are doing has a mid-lift, a long dip, and a few sexy moves.  It will be very interesting to see how it turns out.

We will post the dance on You Tube afterwards.

Thanks Ron.  I will just keep looking to see what I can find for a lightweight towel rack.  Must be something out there for us.  Happy New Year to you.  We are looking forward to lots of trips in our new Phoenix Cruiser in 2010.

Those were great ideas you had for the compartments in the front.  I copied them in my 2010 2400 and they came out great. I would really like to add the water pressure tank and would appreciate it if you either post or send me the instructions.  My email is serenitymotel@hotmail.com.  Thanks for all your great postings.  John, Vermont

John, Vermont

I emailed you a WORD document and 7 pictures on how I installed the water pressure tank.

I don't know where your water pump is located on your 2400, but understand the pressure tank could be mounted anywhere along the cold water high pressure side of the pump.  It doesn't have to be next to the pump, though it is nice to have the mechanics all together.

On-line, there are companies that sell a real nice stainless steel version with nice mounting feet.  If you have the money to spend, they make the installation much easier including a place to mount the pump itself to the tank if so desired.  This allows for vertical stack up of the pump on top of the tank to use less floor space.

Here is what I am describing.  http://www.amazon.com/Pre-Charged-Stainless-Steel-Accumulator-Gallon/dp/B002MBORYU/ref=sr_1_4/182-9098293-1198113?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1262704002&sr=8-4

I went with the cheap $30 Home Depot version because I didn't know what to expect from it, and didn't want to spend a lot of money with the thought of removing it soon thereafter.  During our following trip, I knew the tank was there to stay.  So my point here is, I would have spent the big money on a tank with mounting feet.

Those forward cabinet shelves & vertical slots really make that space work for us.  I am glad to read of someone else utilizing that idea.  You are the first that mentioned it.  It isn't an easy project if you want it to look like a professional installation.

Ron

those are very nice improvements. Could you please e-mail me the details on the construction of the water pressure tank? Pictures will be very helpful as well.  My e-mail address is donaldip59@gmail.com. Thanks in advance

Attached is an image of "custom" tank installation I saw on a PC-2350 at the Phoenix factory in October.

It is great to see the factory implementing some of my improvements along the way, though I am sure they would find them without my help.

I don't yet have pictures of this to share, but it is pretty easy to imagine.

From the day we bought our 2350, when driving our rig on bumpy roads, we would get this strange banging noise in the area around the DVD player.  It drove me nuts, nuts, nuts.  I had my wife look high and low, but we never could find the culprit until this past trip.

What is it?  The roof top antenna.

When we got home this past week, I got up there and added stick-on felt pads, the kind you use to slide chairs on wooden floors.  I added them to the feet of the antenna and also on the edges of the wings.  I have not driven the RV on bumpy roads since so I cannot say for certian that I resolved the problem.  But it's a good prognosis.

I just replaced my barrel chair with a 3rd captain seat.  It takes less than 10 minutes, a 1/2" deep socket, and a 3/4" standard socket.  Super easy to swap them.

Ron:

Looks GREAT!!!  BTW, got the sway bars problems worked out, --- Roadmaster admitted they sent the wrong fittings for the rear bar, sent the correct, all installed, and ready to go.  Makes a BIG difference while stopped, and I am going to see what improvement whe we go south in a few weeks.

JackD,

Yep, it's great when parked.  Just wait when you are on the open road.  You'll be saying....."Why isn't the factory offering these as an option?"
