Took delivery one week ago, everything we asked for (a long list) was installed with no issues.  We are still in Elkhart and after a week have only found two issues 1.  They forgot to install the fire extinguisher and 2. the refrigerator door needed a minor adjustment. I am very impressed with their workmanship, quality and customer service.

I'm parked next to a couple who purchased a NEXUS Wraith super class C (base price $195k) two weeks ago. In a conversation this morning, he told me he has spent  the last 10 days, getting electrical, plumbing and trim issues fixed. He was headed back to the factory again today. obviously very frustrated and disappointed - I didn't have the heart to tell him he should have purchased a Phoenix Cruiser.

Just a short update on our 2552 delivery.  I don't want to jinx the delivery, but so far we have not found a single issue.  Worked on the unit all day today,  packing and testing all of the systems.  Last night's temperature was in the low 20's, I set the furnace at 60 degrees and used the tank heaters - no problems.  It's raining today and it's supposed to warm up later this week,thank goodness!!!

Very impressed with all of the employees (Keith Kinder, Bob Butler, Dave Ponsler) involved in our 2552 delivery today. The walk through was conducted on the shop floor in an extremely thorough and professional manner. So far, we have not not found a single issue.  The unit is gorgeous and the quality is second to none. We will get a good test tonight as the temperature is supposed to be down around 25.  Since it's sooooo cold up here, Dave Ponsler let us move our pickup onto the shop floor for a couple of hours to load the camper.  To answer the question regarding delivery notification - we were told by Dave 2 weeks ago to expect delivery on the 16th.  During their final quality inspection, Phoenix found an issue involving a scratched window that took an extra day to fix. Overall, we couldn't be happier!!!!!!

Today we are taking delivery of our 2552, one day later than planned because PCís careful inspection found a scratch on the driverís window last Thursday. New window was installed Friday and tinted yesterday.  Itís clear from yesterdayís visit that the staff is working hard to meet customer needs and wants.  Iíd advise patience with response time from the small staff of front office folks. We were told yesterday that Earl is coming in today to do our walkthrough. More info tonight.

General Discussion / Re: Thetford toss ins (drop ins)
« on: March 12, 2018, 10:14:44 am »
We just performed a simple experiment with a Thetford toss in.  We simply dropped one in a mason jar full of water to see how well it dissolved.  With a little shaking the pod dissolved quickly, but the pod casing left an undissolved slimy residue. My wife captured the residue on a spoon and let it dry. After a few hours the residue turned into a thin flexible solid film similar to plastic.  It's a cool idea, but I will never use this product in my holding tank !!!!!!!!!

My wife and I have ordered a 2552, which we expect to receive in April.  We're both retired, and after spending ten years traveling overseas, have decided to upsize from a Lance camper to the PC and start traveling in North America again.  Since we have no children/grandchildren to consider, we were able to configure our Cruiser to meet our needs alone.  We took the Lance camper on a 3-month trip to Canada and Alaska in 2007 and had no problems living in that confined space, so expect to enjoy the larger size of the 2552.  On our ordering trip to Elkhart, we worked with Earl to create our "own" PC.  Here's what we hope to see in April:
-- No slide.  Earl showed us a 32" dinette being built in another coach, which will only fit the two of us.
-- Without the slide, the driver's side bed will be lengthened and a pocket door installed.
-- Insulated glass, window tint, full body paint (toast), desert sand interior, cherry cabinets, wood floor, Eurochair
-- JBL sound system and surround sound with DVD player
-- Dash Pioneer system without navigation
-- Undercoating, integrated brake controller
-- 17-foot electric awning
-- MagneShades
-- Premium convenience package
-- 6-way power seat Driverís side only
-- HWH leveling jacks
-- Mirror with compass and outside temp
-- 2 solar panels
-- 50-amp electrical service with additional AC unit
-- Moved the vent/fan from the bedroom to the bathroom, added Ultra Breeze cover
-- Upgraded the front AC unit to 15K with heat pump
-- Added second Fantastic fan in the living room, upgraded to 7500 series with remote control
-- Real leather Eurochair and dinette seats
-- Surge protector -- Progressive Dynamics 9260
-- Side cameras and second rear camera (one for close-up and one for distance)
-- Porch lights on rear cap and drivers side (switches by entry door)
-- Trimetic battery monitor
-- Extra 110 outlet and 12-volt outlet over kitchen sink between the light and outside wall
-- 12-volt outlet next to the 110 outlet at dinette
-- 110 and 12-volt outlets under the overhead cabinets at the head of both beds
-- Drawer in the rear dinette bench
-- Door in the front dinette bench
-- Reversed hinge on driver's side shirt closet
-- Adjustable shelves in both shirt closets
-- Shelves over the head of both beds (15 inches wide x 8 inches deep with 1 ď lip)
-- No headboards
-- Corian on countertop extension
-- Backer board 6 inches wide all the way across the rear wall trunk

We are planning a 5-month trip to Canada and Alaska this summer, so are excited to be able to drive our new Phoenix Cruiser.
