General Discussion / New PC TRX Twin Bed
« on: January 11, 2024, 10:00:39 pm »
Just saw this on FB.  I have been waiting for a twin bed model. 

“Heading to the Tampa Rv Show! Stop by and see us to get a sneak peek at our new Phoenix Trx twin bed floor plan with new decor.”

I also saw liquid spring option will be available of new PC F-Series model (Super C??). 

I like PC new models.

General Discussion / PC Value Just Went Up - Lazy Daze Closes Shop
« on: June 28, 2022, 09:42:51 am »
Lazy Daze RV is permanently closed per reports on the LD Forum.  LD was a family business that made quality RVs.  So now PC and Coach House are two remaining “small” RV manufactures remaining.  Result is your PC value has now increased for those looking for a quality RV!

General Discussion / Sold our PC
« on: March 25, 2021, 10:42:22 am »
With sadness I write that Linda and I sold our PC.  We loved our PC 2551 but with the kids producing grandkids like rabbits we will be looking to go back to a travel trailer with bunk beds so they can camp with us. 

Love this forum.  Thanks for all the helpful information provided to us.  PC owners and the factory support are the best!! 

Till we meet again!

Congrats Ron on your new ride!  That is top of the line stuff there.  I don’t know anything about the water heater system.  Sorry I can’t help there.  My slide is different as well.  Did you try to talk through troubleshooting over the phone with PC?  Perhaps it could save you a trip. 

Love that color too!!  PCers are the sharpest on the road!

Thanks Mike for the info.  Also the Blix Vika+ is 10 lbs heavier than the Lectric.  The Lectric has thicker tires too.   

I wonder on your Blix Vika+ when you pedal without assist/dead battery is it hard to pedal?  Or is it as easy as a normal bike?

Happy New Year!

"Game changer" for me as well.  When I decided to buy the RV, I knew that I needed a way to "cover ground" in many areas without extensive walking (the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak).  I thought about various solutions--motorbike, regular bicycles, even maybe a Segway?  Not being a regular bike rider, I vaguely knew that e-bikes existed but they didn't surface initially.  When they finally did, and I took a look, I knew I'd found the most logical solution to my quandary.
As I always do, when faced with a new arena and no expertise, I spent a lot of time online learning about e-bikes and the best options for me.  Experience is by far the best teacher, but the internet is not too far behind!

I did opt for a step through model, and one with 20-inch wheels, because any "macho pride" I may have left these days has been well tempered with experience and pragmatism.  As mentioned earlier in this thread, I decided a folding model would fit my needs best--as a single traveler most of the time, I can just pitch it in the back of the Jeep and have it in and out almost instantly without dealing with the bike rack questions.  There are several good models--I went with the Blix Vika+ based on solid quality at an entry price ($1700).  Partially due to careful research (and maybe partially due to beginner's luck), the bike turned out to be perfect for my needs.  After a year and half of experience, I really can't think of a thing I'd want to change.

Thanks for sharing.  I am considering an e-bike for the wife.  I like the folding ones too. I will add the Blix to the list.  DId you consider the Lectric folding e-bike?  If you did just wondering what your thoughts were on it.  It seems to be a good value for the price.

Thanks for that info.  There must must some kind of back flow valve near the city connection.  If not, the system would not seal.  I like putting the blowout plug and quick connect at the city water input.  Much easier than crawling around inside and assures one gets all water out.  Our 2010 2551 PCs are some much simpler than newer models.  I like that a lot.

Do you know where the city connection ties into the water system?  By the pump? By the shower?...

You Colorado guys come through again!!  Thanks much!!

Once again thanks for sharing all your knowledge regarding PC items. 

I already have the bypass kit installed on the water pump.  So I just need to buy a blow out plug.  I will consider this method next year.  But I have to investigate how my city water connection is tapped into the plumbing system.  We have not used the city water connection yet.  We just fill the water tank and use the pump.  I have not looked for any type of 3-4way valve on the city water connection nor do I remember seeing any under the driver side bed storage area.   This info is important to clear the city connection line of water with the compressed air.

Where do you attach to blow out lines?
Every year I consider blowing out lines.  I just worry something will go wrong.  I used to blow my pool lines every year.  Hated that because I was never satisfied I got everything out. Never had a problem though. My brother in law recently damaged his pump blowing out lines at his cottage. Things happen. I might consider blowing out lines if we used water to drink. But we always bring separate water to drink.

Every method is good as long as it works!

My rule of thumb with RVs is error on the side of caution.  Control what you can control.  Prepare for what you can’t control.  Blowing out lines and/or added pink antifreeze are good suggestions.  Personally, I would use pink antifreeze only. It is easy to do and low cost.  Never had a problem with freezing over twenty years of RVing.  The one and only Earl has some good videos on winterizing that may help, if needed.

Thank you SARZ272000!  :)(:

The strap over the front hood I see it in your photo and Jim's, does it come with the cover or something you added?

Strap was added to keep front down on windy days.

I have a 2551 and use the Goldline cover as well.  I like it.  I use fun noodles in areas where a hole could develop.  I tape noodles down with blue painters tape.  I also place a yoga ball on the roof near the ladder to better facilitate water runoff, otherwise water pools in back due to the railing.

2 Lucky explained how to fold it. His note is shown below.  Very helpful!

2 LUCKY:
Follow their instructions for installation after the first time, which you will need to do to determine front and outside. Hopefully they are now using the method I describe below to pack the cover, which I have shared with them when I got my latest cover.

To remove the cover, unzip the back panel, fold in up over the top. Climb on top and pull the sides up and as neatly as possible fold the sides to the center to about 3 ft wide. Climb down and go to the front and start tightly rolling the folded cover in on itself on top of the hood, which should be clean because that is the way you had it before you put the cover on, I hope.

Now the next time you want to put the cover on, just hoist it to the roof, ( I use a step ladder in addition to the RV ladder) get on top of the RV and unroll the cover to the front over the AC and vents. Start flopping the sides down as you work your way back to the ladder, being careful not to step on accessories up there, but most of all careful not to challenge gravity. You will lose.  This works for any RV or trailer, but is really easy with the Goldline since the back flap unzips in both corners to nearly the top. Be glad you have PC because you can actually walk on the roof.

“The city water hookup goes to the cold water plumbing AFTER the water pump.and pressurizes all water lines.“

Didn't know that.  That explains a lot.  Thanks for that tip.  On my 2010 2551 the pump is directly below the access hole.  On occasion I feel around it checking for any leaks.   But, I agree removing the board is the easiest access and doesn't take long.  It also allows access to where the plumbing goes back into the closet.

Just be careful removing the board because the power center is under the bed as well.  Don’t drop any of those screws!!!

Could you identify what gutter extensions you installed?  Can’t seem to find them.  I like that idea.  Thanks for sharing.

Update; Are these the ones?

I wish the slide topper was a little wide so rain does not get underneath it.
