General Discussion / Re: Water in Outside Storage Drawer
« on: August 28, 2018, 03:57:06 pm »
Never had the problem with my 2006 2100 but did get water in the drawer on my 2015 2552 this year.  We had some hard blowing rains so I thought it was a rare occurrence and not alarmed.  I would like to learn if there is a way to avoid in the future so letís hope an expert has a cure.

OK Forum Fans, here is the update and conclusion
Update, dropped the tank and found that a critter ( read mouse ) chewed through the elbow gas line fitting above the gas tank.  Also found another spot on the gas line had been chewed.
Conclusion, new fitting and gas line and generator runs fine.
Lessons, all critters love to chew on stuff!  In future I will run stabil in every tank that will sit for two months or more to avoid ethenal gumming of the carborator.  I will start and run the generator every thirty days.  I will get the RV out on the road every thirty days to shake the mouse out of the house.  I will put mouse bait and traps outside the coach as well as inside.  I will use peppermint oil as a spray above the gas tank and other places as my Tennessee advisors tell me that Tennessee mice do not like peppermint.
I will hope for the best.
That is about it.  Let me know if questions.  I guess wonít be buying that new set of golf clubs for awhile longer.
Happy travels and best Regards,  2travel

General Discussion / Re: 3100 slide out topper

No metal cover on slide out topper?  I noticed after 4 years of ownership and rotting fabric I have none and was told by Factory they order metal covered ones for coaches with full body paint but not for those with lower paint.  Bad news.  Lesson I learned is be more observant and overtreat cover with armor all in hopes of getting more than 4 years out of the replacement.  400 dollar repair

Dave said Ford has the gas tank mounted on the frame with two straps and four bolts and the tank is mounted before Phoenix receives it so if it is to be dropped, best to have ford do it.  Stay tuned, I talk to the ford truck dealer today, August 1st, 2018.

Hi all, thanks for your input.  Still working on problem. Update is runs great out of a gallon gas can.  Vacuum draws no gas from main tank.  Blowing in gas line does not bubble in tank or pressurize gas line due to check valve operation so thought is line has a crack above tank.  May need to have local Ford truck dealer drop tank and replace gas line to generator. I talked to Phoenix today, spoke with General Manager Dave Ponsler, he was terrific, I felt like I was talking with Kermit.  Dave may be coming to the Club meeting in Deluth in September. I will post further developments and progress or lack of.  I almost never use the generator so I am wondering why spend any time or money on it.
I wondered about just switching to solar but have been told solar would not generate enough power to start my standard air conditioner.

Is it possible to install a fuel line shut off valve on the generator fuel line?  Where would be a good spot?
Generator fails to start.  Runs fine with alternate fuel source so fuel is not getting to the generator.  I think I have a faulty fuel line.  Have any of you had this problem?  Any suggestions?  Do I need to drop the tank and replace the fuel line?
Unit is a 2552 new in 2015.
Thanks for any advice.

I am curious, what do you paint experts think of clear coat versus FBP?  Is there a difference, if so what?  Thanks for the education.  2travel

I second the question.  Who uses a cover and what kind can you recommend?

I started with a 2100.  It did fine but I found that big rigs blowing by me on the interstate tended to push me around a bit.  I added the safetyplus as a safety feature in case of a tire blow out. ( Check out the safety plus web site and demonstration videos. )  I added helwig rear stabilizer and helper springs to reduce lean and improve on exit and entrance ramps.  All made it more fun, easier and safer to drive.  I now have a 2552 and like the 2100 it does fine.  After two years I added the safety plus, makes it safer and easier to drive.  I don't get pushed around as much by the big rigs because I am bigger.   I have also added the mobil-eye, acts as my co-pilot if I get too close to the vehicle in front of me or if I wander in my lane.  Makes me a safer driver with less fatigue just like the safety plus and any suspension improvements.  Be safe and enjoy your journey.  If any of you all have not heard of the mobile eye, ask Kyle at the factory.  PS The manga shades are a great addition to and easy to put on and take off.  Wishing you All the best,  Steve Bowser

Hitch,
Don't despair.  Go to the camp ground during the rally time if you can and I am sure Phoenix owners will be pleased to show their units and talk with you.  I attended the 2016 event as a club member.  I am not attending this year but plan to next year.  Try again to contact the club.  The factory can probably give you contact information as they provide a one year membership to each new owner.
Good luck, Steve
