Title: Because I love y'all the mostest
Post by: aimee on September 26, 2013, 10:15:20 am
You get the first view on Part 1 of the new Phoenix Construction Tour!  Days 1-6.  It's a long video, but if you get your geek on by things like this like I do, it'll be worth the watch!

Earl walks you through to day 6 of construction, as we see the transformation from bare chassis through welding, flooring, electrical, plumbing and rough walls/cabinetry.

Fantastic! I can hardly wait to see the next installment. I don't know of any other company that is so open to showing how their product is made.

Excellent video!!!!!!!!!!  It was easy to see many of the components that we have talked about on this forum.  Most recently the trasnsfer switch was shown very nicely.  2o2

Nicely done!  I would have liked to have seen the walls go up....

Very Nice!

If you are taking requests, I would love to see actual assembly of...

- the pre-assembly of a PC floor, laying of underbelly corregated plastic, block foam insulation, adhesives, and the fastening of the plywood.  Is that a vacu-bonded pre-assembly, then laid on the Ford chassis frame?
- the assembly of the PC floor to the Ford framing
- the pre-assembly of a side wall showing studs, window framing, and how the vacu-bond process is done there
- the same for the roof
- walls and roof assembly to the chassis and specific views on fastening
- B+ cap and wing wall assembly
- one window & the door installation
- fiberglass roof-to-wall assembly

I know they are not particularly selling points to someone shopping, but it would be great to see the assembling of the structural house.

As I was watching the video, my wife came into my office.  I showed the part of the video I was watching which included the wiring.  She said, “Oh Lord, I don’t even want to know!” and left.  :lol

 :lol  The construction video got interrupted by the Hershey show and the Goshen show.  Hopefully they'll get another opportunity soon to finish it up.  I think eventually they'll do ones for each model.  Fingers crossed!

Outstanding,,, and wow,,, as I have stated before,,, these babies are complicated, did you see all those wires laying up by the dash,, unreal Ron would love to put that mess back together haha.. if I ever buy a new one (fingers crossed someday)  will make sure to stay up in Indiana for a couple of days to get debugged...   that's not a criticism, any new Rv will have problems,,,and I have read way to many responses of new owners and the service they get from Phoenix and that's why people love this company so much.

  Question,,, anyone that has been RVing a long time,,, did you notice the copper joints, anyone know why??  Do all the mfers do that and why?  Just curious.

    I agree with Ron would love to see them put the walls and the caps on...

I agree. I have been to the factory four times, twice for each PC. First was to see it being built and the second to pick it up. Now my DW will not let me close to there again.:'(

You better be carefull or you will be out shopping for one.  ;)

We try to stay away from the PC's at the Tampa RV Show---I might just want another, newer model. The good thing is that since we now have the 2910, there is only the 3100.

NOW, if they made a MH with the 2910 front (two Euro chairs and the galley beside the sofa) and the 3100 with the bath in the rear there would be #4 PC in our future. Unfortunately (or fortunately for George), Kermit says that it cannot be built pyho

Tom, You are so funny.

It's a good thing you live many miles from the factory or you'd have first-hand experience with every model.  :)

Ron I keep telling her it is ONLY a 10 hour drive.

Ah, Tom, we thought you were being extra nice when you offered to drive us to the factory to pick up our PC. Now I know it was a secret plan to get around your wife's "NO FACTORY" rule.

 :lol  My daughter is already pushing for a 2910T to drive to competitions around the state and country.  As I'm just in my 30's, and a single self-employed mom, it's probably going to be awhile before I bring home a PC.  ;)  But they are lovely. I know I post about all the finishing details a lot, and I put it on the website and in the brochure, but seeing it firsthand was really impressive.  And they totally didn't even know I was coming in. I was up visiting Earl and stopped in for a surprise visit on my way home Monday morning.

  Just say the word (and your spending budget) Aimee and we'll find something affordable.  Likely not a 2910T, but something that will work well for you and your daughter.  Most women who go solo with a pet or child prefer a short rig.

Then again, just tell that info to Earl, and he'll take best care of you.  But you already know that.
