Glad to hear you had such a good experience with Phoenix.  We have been equally pleased with them from the very beginning.  Hope you enjoy your PC as much as we do ours.  Happy Camping.

General Discussion / Re: Water pressure regulator

Just as others have said, we use one at the spigot, at every campground we visit, regardless of the claimed pressure of the owners.  We always carry an extra regulator with us in case we screw up and leave the regulator by mistake.  Only has happened twice in 20 years of camping, but it saves having to run out and get one while camping.

That replacement appears to be a lot more comfortable, ideal as long as you do NOT need the biggest possbible bed there.
Nope, we don't need that bed there.....we ever used it for that. We found that "reclining" that old set-up was way too much hassle and it really wasn't very comfy. We, and the dog, love the new recliners.

Looks great! I've been procrastinating on that upgrade for a while now!
Thank you. We have no regrets. If you have questions, just ask.

We replaced our leather loveseat with the RecPro Charles 58" electric dual recliners. We couldn't be happier! They are so comfortable and give us much nicer and easier reclining options. We added an oak 2" deep board in front, underneath, to give us better placement front-to-back. It gave us the allowance needed for wall clearance in the back and a better securing option for the front portion. The color matches nicely with the second color (light beige) in the valences. We have a 2018 Phoenix Cruiser 3100.

Paul's Seating in Elkhart made the original sofas, you may want to check with them.
Thank you. Yes, we did check their website. Unfortunately, they don't have the style that we like, nor will their options fit our PC. Maybe they could do something  custom, but we will hold off considering  that until we see what other options are out there.

General Discussion / Dual Reclining Sofa Options

We are considering replacing the sofa in our 2018 3100 and found this option....


Has anyone purchased this for their PC, or are there any other options for us to consider for a dual reclining sofa?

Just curious, what did he attach the cover to?  Looks like an interesting idea, just can't figure out the attachment method.

General Discussion / Re: PC3100 Slide Leaks while driving.
« on: June 25, 2022, 05:16:15 am »
We have a 2018, 3100 also and we have not had any problems with water getting inside with the slide open or closed.  Have you checked the top of your slide before you close it to see if water has gotten on top of it while it is open?  We have found that the slide awning topper that PC uses on the 3100 is barely long enough to cover the top of the slide and if there is any wind blowing when it is raining, water can accumulate on top of the slide.  Also, when it is raining, a small amount of water can accumulate on the awning topper itself and when the slide is brought in, it is possible for some of that water to run off the end of the slide awning topper and get on the slide's top or end panels.

As a result of experiencing similar issues on an earlier RV, we purchased a collapsible ladder and an extendable handled squeegee that we use to remove any water that has accumulated on the top of the slide awning topper AND/OR on top of the slide before we close the slide on our PC.  It is just one of our steps in our closing procedures that we check if we have had rain while we have the slide open.  An option for you to try if you are unable to check the slide's top before closing is to have towels ready when you close the slide and lay them on the top of the slide to absorb any water that may have accumulated on the top of the slide as you bring it in. 

The only way to prevent water from accumulating on the top of the slide is to replace the slide awning topper with one that it approximately 6" longer that will hang over each end 3" which would prevent water from getting on the slide's top.  We did this on an earlier RV and the problem was resolved.

Hope this idea helps.

General Discussion / Re: Heat Pump Fan Cycling
« on: June 09, 2022, 05:30:11 am »
Bobkbusch, I think your conclusion is correct for the reason your heat pump is starting and stopping.  We have the same issue on A/C with ours when it is very humid.  The unit goes into a defrost mode, starting and stopping with changes to the fan speed when it does it.  Our research determined that it was to defrost the cooling coils of the A/C.  They say it is designed to do that and not to worry about it.  I suspect the same is true for the heat pump because ours did the same as yours when we used the heat pump in "cool" weather. 
We ended up getting a ceramic heater and using it at night and it keeps the unit very comfortable instead of having the furnace run.  We set ours on the floor in front of the kitchen cupboards and plug it into the power tower outlets on the kitchen counter.

General Discussion / Re: Insurance (again)
« on: January 24, 2022, 06:03:06 pm »
We had National General for 11 years on all our vehicles, including our RV's.  Then in 2015 we finally had an insurance claim on our car as a result of an accident with a deer.  We then learned that National General did not have any insurance adjusters in Michigan and we would have to wait for them to contract with a third-party adjuster to check out our insurance claim.  It was over 2 weeks, and several calls by us to National General, before a third-party adjuster was hired.  As a result, a repair that should have taken 2, maybe three weeks, took 5 weeks to get done.  The repair shop said that they had never seen a company take so long to review and approve an accident claim as National General had taken.

Needless to say, we switched insurance carriers as soon as they had paid for our repair job.
