General Discussion / Re: Rear camera problem
« on: October 31, 2014, 10:32:14 am »
I spoke with Kermit earlier this week and when I went to our storage area to check the camera, it worked.  I will check it again the first of the week when we get back in town.  I did move the cable going into the front windshield area so that might have something to do with the problem..............ie:  a loose connection.

General Discussion / Rear camera problem
« on: October 21, 2014, 06:20:09 pm »
Trish and I have a 2011 Model 3100 which we dearly love.  On the way south for the winter, the rear camera stopped working.  It went to a bright blue screen.  After turning it off for a while, I turned it back on and the screen came back on for about 5 minutes in a noticeably weak picture quality.  It then returned to the solid blue screen. 

Any ideas from you fellow crusiers?

When you get real serious about purchasing; take the time and trouble to go visit the PC factory in Elkhart, IN.  They are wonderful people.

Most of the workers have worked there many years.  They are dedicated to building a quality product.  They work together and their product pride shows.   

Start at the 1st point in assembly where the bare chassis comes into the plant.  Take your time and ask questions.  You will get answers, not excuses. 

Also note the plant parking lot is not full of junk cars.  Means the workers are being paid a fair wage.

When you see how they are constructed I'm sure your purchase decision will be much easier.

General Discussion / Noisy ceiling air conditioner.

Have any of you come up with a solution to help curb the loud noise of the ceiling ac/heater unit?  We love our 3100 but hate the overhead noise.

Trish and I are headed to the Brooksville Rally tomorrow (Friday).  We decided to hold off until the rains passed and the weather warmed up a little.  We look forward to possibly meeting some other PC owners. 

We met a great couple from over in Alabama (Larry and Seji) at the Tampa RV Show .  They gave us their contact info and I can't find it anywhere.  Too many pockets.  Hopefully they will email or call us as we want to meet them in Gainesville for the National Drag Races in March.

We hope to meet some of you at the FMCA Rally tomorrow or Saturday.

Trish and I are signed up for the FMCA SEA Rally in Brooksville, FL starting 1/30 thru 2/2 at the Hernando County Airport.  We look forward to meeting some fellow PC owners there  Hope to see you there.  We'll be taking daytime side trips from Brooksville and leaving on Saturday for home in Tavares.

Trish and I made our reservations today.  Hope to meet with you while there.

We will see you in Brookville.  I'm looking forward to meeting other Phoenix Cruiser owners..  We love ours.

General Discussion / Re: MICHELIN TIRE RECALL
« on: January 03, 2014, 12:18:20 pm »
Thanks for the heads-up on the recall.  Had all seven replaced yesterday with 27,000 miles on them.  No charges for balance and nitrogen refill at Boulevard Tires in Mt Dora. FL.  The mechanics pointed out that my alignment was really off according to the tire wear patterns.  I took the RV to Gibson's Alignment Center in Leesburg, FL and they had to replace a alignment part related to the camber of the wheels.  The motorhome drives amazingly better.

General Discussion / Re: Protective Bug Screen for front of PC

We live in Florida and I simply keep some bug off spray and Dawn detergent water in a spray bottle.  If you stay up to date and don't let the bugs get baked on they don't appear to be a big problem down here.  It also helps to keep your vulnerable areas freshly waxed.

I had our mechanic install a fuse disconnect button on our dash.  Roadmaster.com offers a simple kit for $15+_ and it is a easy installation for an experienced mechanic.  Works great.

Trish and I are planning on attending the rally.  We have not definitely committed to being there the full  time.  We will repost when we know for sure.  It would be great if we got several Phoenix owners to attend for a "mini-rally" and fellowship.

We are making our reservations today.

Thank you for the information.  We'll have to see if we can make it.  Trish and I have been up the Cog Railroad to the top of Pikes Peak.  It is a wonderful experience.  Fantastic views.  Be sure and wear some warm winter clothes as the weather on top of Pikes Peak at 14,000 feet plus can be brutal even though it is shorts weather down below.  We'd also recommend that you take a couple of bottles of water as the air gets very thin on top and you need the oxygen from the water to help with breathing.

Can someone tell me when and where the 2014 rally will be held.  Also can you advise me of the costs, how many days it lasts, contact person for reservations and where to monitor for more information on activities etc?

General Discussion / Re: Window tint, driver and passenger side windows
« on: November 18, 2013, 05:18:40 pm »
We had our side windows and windshield tinted last year before heading out to the southwest.  It wasn't too expensive and we felt it was a worthwhile investment.  I'd recommend 3M or Llumar.  The side windows are darker than the windshield as the windshield is covered by law as to how dark it can be.  It helps keep the sun rays from cooking you and your copilot.
