General Discussion / Double pane window fog
« on: August 17, 2021, 07:37:49 pm »
 ;)Well  one of the small double pane windows  right where I sit at the dinnett table (the lower crank open  forward window) evidently the seal gave way and the argon gas seeped out and moisture got in and fogged the window, annoying
 to say the least. I put up with it for too long . The same problem same type windows shows on this  forum's search back some time ago with some ideas to repair. Such as call the factory, possible warranty,  or purchase a replacement window, heat it with a blow dryer, remove and bake in oven .
So I called the factory  sent photos back in April of this year  talked with Carol at Phoenix in Elkhart, said she will order a replacement  to install myself, gave her my credit card information. Never been charged, Never received the window.  Months of lack of communication I gave up .
Tried a local window repair place in town seamed to have no interest in trying to repair such a small job. So with the help of Google and YouTube,  I drilled between 2 pieces of glass carefully  there is 1/4" seal between the glass  right left and bottom drilled holes and inserted a small  straw in one hole then blew condensed air between the 2 panes of glass, the fog turned to water droplets which I used  a heat gun carefully to dry up the droplets  this took time because I didn't want to melt or burn the glass or seals. Low and behold the glass  perfectly cleared . Now I did not seal the drilled holes to make sure no moisture returns,  when the window is closed the drilled holes are locked in the window frame and not exposed.  Days now weeks gone by ,open  closed rain and shine no fog, no moisture, clear view  not going to seal the drilled holes  see how long this lasts in different environments.  Enjoying the view , hoping for the best.. 2o2

Don't feel left out, the old Grey mare just ain't what it used to be!! Kermit is in the past and so is Phoenix cruiser, the way it used to be.  I've been waiting for answers for parts ordered last May, it is now the middle of August.  Gave up and fixed it myself. As I said"it just ain't what it used to be ". Just my 2 cents.

Yes there is a kit to repair (after market  from e bay)  49.$  But " LIFETIME " Warranty, Free including shipping from Tri Mark ,supposedly the new replacement lock set. Why bother repairing.  Put the 49$ in your tank.

General Discussion / Entrance door locks

In case this happens to you !
This is the second lock set , the first one came from the factory Phoenix Cruiser, Elkhart Indiana.  Tri Mark  dead bolt duel lock and duel keys. This set up is probably on 90 % of all Rv motor homes and if not all Phoenix Cruisers  (check the write ups on YouTube). Well the original Tri Mark entrance door lock on my  PC  locked me in ,had to disassemble the lock to get outside , yes you can climb over the cab seats to get out , to say the least not a good situation  when traveling and camping. Found out there was a flaw in the locking mechanisms  part was made of pot metal that didn't hold up well,Tri Mark new about it so no questions asked sent out a new updated one ,made of steel  ( a magnet verified it was steel ) . ALL WELL AND GOOD! for less than a year latter  on a camping trip got locked out again had to disassemble the lock to get outside, this time noticed  broken pieces of black plastic In the mechanisms,  steel bolt will not slide to open, Now let me say  minimal use no slamming shut, opening and closing normally , this happened.  Called Tri Mark  customer service No questions asked overnighted a 2nd lock set complete with keys , installed this one  because it's easy to install the  same lock because of hole size, paint pattern etc. And no cost to me.
LIFETIME WARRANTY,  excellent customer service,  great looking,  sleek ,heavy duty, entrance door lock ,with  piss poor engineering in the mechanisms.
Three strikes your out!!! Hoping for the best....

General Discussion / Ground cable can cost you $$
« on: June 26, 2021, 10:07:43 pm »
 pyhoBeware of corroded battery cables, not the obvious ones you see in your battery drawer,  the hidden ones under the chassis especially the ground cable connected to the chassis frame. On my 2018 in only a few years that cable really hard see was the culprit. Evidently the factory used a self tapping bolt not very rust proof to the under carriage frame , when trying to remove the bolt it broke and crumbled. 
Now here's where the $$ come in . Not knowing you have a bad ground cable which will indicate electrical problems such as flickering lights,  voltage drops, gauges and battery indicators showing low voltage etc. So easy fixes first,  clean the obvious  battery cables, still the problem existed, replaced a few positive cables, same problem, tested batteries under load ( these happened to be 6v deep cycle golf cart batteries in series) checked ok problem still exists.   Well, tried a 12v portable battery set up in the coach using jumper cables system worked perfectly no voltage drops  no flickering lights No problem  telling me that there was no short in the coach.  By going Back to the golf cart batteries  problem comes back. So figuring the batteries are almost three-years old and the portable battery fixed the problem, let's go for 2 new 6v deep cycle golf cart batteries $$.install them in the battery drawer same as the original in series ,guess what problem still exists. Cables all checked and cleaned some replaced $$ them and until then the hidden ground cable,  the culprit was found cleaned replaced bolt tighten and all is working great.  Simple fix no $$, go figure YOUR  batteries are only as good as YOUR  GROUND..save $$ and go camping.  2o2

So glad to see people getting together and sharing.  Yes, Kermit is by far the most outstanding manufacturer -his appearance at the InterVec Phoenix RV Travel Club reunion is ALWAYS a work time for him.  He is so appreciated by all.  He likes happy customers and is always willing to make it right and not gouge anyone in doing so. 

 2o2  to Kermit and his hard working crew!    tymote

Since I can now rotate my driver seat I added a removable table. I customize it by deco pod epoxy seals the wood and added a photo of a trout which I printed on my printer on regular printer paper on a ink jet printer. ALSO added a fishing lure inbetted in the wood.
Nice added feature , the table is removable and stores easy, the base is flush to to the carpet (no hole only screws) a plastic cap fits in the base when not using it, flush to carpet.
BTW seat rotation clears leg  and I also off set the table bottom so it swings in and away from you while seated. See photos

Replies : Thanks , Cal and Ron, hopefully I can answer some of your questions : yes made a template, then copied that template to 1/8" plywood so that way I can bolt it on the seat and pedistool which made it operational to see if everything cleared. (No I didn't leave the plywood there after everything lined up removed it ) you must have the swivel with the slide . It will not clear by just the swivel (lazy Susan) .The turn and the slide work together  to  clear the 180 * turn with seat back all the way up clearing console, steering wheel with out opening the door even with the arm rest. Yes it makes it easier with an  open door the more you turn the seat you find it easier to do .Yes you can also do the passenger seat which is easier  because  you have more clearance  , my 2100 model has the dinnett so turning the seat does no good. But it makes a world of difference to turn that driver seat and face your guests at the sofa and the dinnett. (I'll post a photo of the removable table I just installed) so even with the installed table it all clears nicely.
Ron the stack does not interfere with the electric pedistool  your stack sits on top bolts on it raises the seat approximately 2"  plenty of head room,  better view over the dashboard  and when turn around better clearance to the slight step up to coach and really not needed the tilt steering wheel adjusts and the electric control seat fine tunes it.So when driving everything is locked in tight and comfortable.
