I'm Rick Leddon. I bought a 2910, 2012. I am 65 years old and have wanted a rv since I was 22 years old. Took all these years to finally get it done. I decide on the Phenix Cruiser 3 years ago, researched it to death and shopping for the right one. Finally found it in Tampa at a Camping World lot. It had 36000 miles on it. We flew to Tampa from Dallas and drove it back. Spent the first night at the rv lot and the second night at a Walmart parking lot in Hattiesburg MS. I then parked the rv and didn't use it for 15 months. It needed some work to get ready, but we jumped in and started prepping it. New batteries, new carb for generator, some wiring damage due to mice (I hope they were mice. We were off to a vintage dune buggy event in Nevada, with a stop in Arizona. Had a great time, but still on a learning curve. Second trip, four months later, off to the Smoky Mountains for another dune buggy event. 5 days then to Florida, where my wife had a 4 day convention. Parked the rv and checked in to the Marriott in Orlando. From there to the panhandle of Florida and a stop in Vicksburg Ms. Next trip Outer banks and maybe New England. I have a number of questions and will start posting and asking for advise. At some point I hope to be the one giving advise to the new guys. This seems to be a great group of people and I look forward to being involved.
So - that's the plan. The question is, where is the bypass for the water heater on a 2014 2551? Thank you.Lee Anne
Have been strongly considering the 2551 model , like the 2552 but the wheelbase concerns me some for getting around some tighter spots , it being about a foot longer yet. Drove big trucks a long time and some smaller ones too , maneuvering around too much isn't much fun anymore . Seeing too that Ford will be dropping the V-10 next year might be a worthwhile wait too, 7.? V-8 with a couple more gears in trans maybe rear gears a little lower should improve MPG , maybe not much but a little better .If the 2551 crowd would throw a shout back, that'd be cool , even though a lot of similarities between models..I'm about utubed out too ! Outside storage is probably my first concern , amazing what we can fit now , wouldn't want to loose any part of that at least when upgrading and really surprised there isn't that much info out there on that , opportunity for utubers to make an appearance here ! What can you fit in there ?? Thanks for the space here and reading up , looks to be a really helpful And fun group here , happy motoring , Pappy T
Thanks again Mike ! Compared dimensions to what we have and it definitely takes a load off my mind . Now onto the next phase of research ! I asked about and never got a reply back from P , and that was regarding insulated windows . Are they acrylic or glass ?? Saw others advertised online with them but they didn't show how they looked, some have a big white frame inside that wasn't exactly good looking . So , if anyone would be kind enough to chime in on this one I can move on to another part of research !
