Thanks Gary, I will look for the email. Just thought that we could have somethings in common since we lived in Salisbury. If nothing else just to share travel information. We have traveled the USA except for the Northeast. Thanks again, Chuck

I have tried the search engine without success. Looking to make contact with Gary & Kristy Burleyson from Salisbury, NC. If you get this message please contact me. We lived in Salisbury {High Rock Lake area) for about 20 years. Email at cew1945@myglnc.com or text to 910-264-9224. Saw your post about BBQ in the news letter. Chuck :)

General Discussion / Re: Roadside Assistance Plans
« on: January 04, 2022, 10:16:05 pm »
I'm sure there are as many different opinions about roadside assistance plans as their are about motorhome brands. Having had many rv types, I'll share my experience with roadside service. We had no roadside assistance with our pull trailers or fifthwheels. No assistance with our first class c or first class a. One year of Coach Net came with the purchase of our 2018 Tiffin. This was our first experience with roadside assistance. Never had to use Coach Net but the reviews on the Tiffin Network were excellent. We have also had Saferide through FMCA (Family Motor Coach Assc). Flat tire service not that great because they will not repair a tire on the road. If you can get contracted company to bring a new tire, it most likely not be the same brand or tread pattern. They will tow you to the nearest repair service within their agreement. We now have Good Sam Assist on our cars & PC. They have been excellent for our cars. Haven't used them for PC. The Good, Bad & Ugly of Roadside Plans are many. The reviews are all over the board. My advice is to read the fine print for tire service. At my age, I'm not going to be changing tires, front or back. I'm only concerned about flat tire service. Not really concerned about the PC breaking down.  AAA was excellent for our cars but didn't offer RV service in our area when we decided to purchase a plan. I will check AAA when our Good Sam Roadside Assist expires. Chuck :)

Hank, first of all, you live in one of our favorite areas of the good old USA. I would not try to force the awning. It could very well be the cold weather. I traveled the Dakotas for 38 years out of Sioux Falls and have seen many strange happenings because of cold weather. I mean SD cold weather! If you aren't going to need it, I would wait for warmer days. I don't think the problem will get worse while you wait.  :) Chuck

After owning 9 rv's over the years, half bought from dealers & half from owners I recommend: Don't buy from a dealer & expect them to service it in a timely manner or at all. Ok to buy from a dealer but don't expect to much. I learned long ago to buy rv's that had quality factory service as a back up. I bought our PC knowing that if I couldn't fix the problem, with tech help from PC, we would drive the 725 miles to Elk Hart. My best experiences have been buying from a previous owner. Experienced owners can be very helpful explaining the systems & where things are located. Experienced owners would have fixed most, if not all, problems with their unit. Of course, if buying new, that can't happen. Learn all you can about the floor plan you intend to buy. Watching utube PC videos & reading reviews will be a big help. Tina's video on the 2552 is very good.  Most dealerships have huge turnovers in sales. You will probably know more than the dealer sales person. If buying from a individual, be prepared to travel & have your money in order. Good used PC's don't stay on the market long. Winter is a good time buy. Great luck to you & enjoy the ride. :) Chuck

Adding this statement: Having owned 9 rv's over the years, I can say that all manufactures could learn from Phoenix Cruiser USA. The build quality of our motor home surpasses all previous rv's. Considering supply chain problems, I wouldn't want to build anything that required hundreds of parts. From what I hear, PC is doing better than most. Just my 2 cents, Chuck

General Discussion / Re: Roof Maintenance
« on: November 04, 2021, 07:25:48 pm »
Thanks for the replies. I have used Rejex polymer wax & 303 protectant for years on all my rv's. 303 doesn't last as long but is very easy to use. When using Rejex, only do small areas at a time. If the wax is allowed to dry for more than a few minutes, it is very hard to buff out. I use both on all surfaces, paint, glass & diamond sheild. Using Rejex on the front makes removing bugs easy. Both products leave a very slick surface. On the roof, apply from front to back & down the ladder. Do not walk on the roof after applying 303.  :) Chuck

General Discussion / Roof Maintenance
« on: November 03, 2021, 05:21:53 pm »
I wash my PC often & always wash the roof. I use a liquid RV soap/wax to wash & hand wax twice a year. What are ya'll using on the roof for protection. I have two AC units, 360 antenna, two solar panels, three vents & the shower dome on the roof. My class a had a smooth vinyl roof that was easy to wax. The PC roof is textured & not easy to wax. I guess I could use a liquid wax but it would still be hard to hand buff out. Our PC stays outside in the North Carolina weather so I try my best to keep it looking new. Thanks for your replies, Chuck :)

My first experience with Campers Inn service: After purchasing a new Tiffin Class A ($176000.00) I tried to make a appointment for warranty work. I was told to bring it in. When I inquired about the time table to repair two simple items----the response was they had no idea. Could be months before they could look into our problems. My response, you expect me to leave our motorhome with no end date to be fixed? We have only had it for a month & you are going to let it sit on your lot until???? Long story short----I drove 725 miles to Red Bay, Ala. I made two trips to Red Bay over three & a half years knowing that our motorhome would be fixed right the first time. Tiffin built their business on thier ability to service what they sold. They didn't rely on the dealer network. You can call Tiffin & speak with a technician during business hours, same day service. If I can't fix my PC, I will drive to the factory before I would let Campers Inn touch it. I am not picking on Campers Inn----they just happen to be the dealer for Tiffin & PC in NC. As far as I know, out of four location in North Carolina, Campers Inn has no PC inventory. Sounds like a one sided agreement to me. I have had three occasion to call PC, only once did I get a call back. Have tried their contact service with no response.  UTube has been my go to for how to fix many problems. Still love traveling this great country. Chuck :)

Well said Mike. We just down sized from a Tiffin Class A. I have always done my homework before writing a big check. Studied 2 years before buying the Tiffin. Did the same before buying our PC. The Tiffin rv network has about 10,000 members. I still read the post nightly.  There is always a problem with the electric  Lippert slides. According to Lippert, in order to keep the system in sync, you should hold the in/out button for 3 or 4 seconds after the slide is in or out. Never stop half way. Love our PC! After 40 yrs rving, this will be our last. I do all maintenance & fix 90% of failures. Would like to see PC expand there service center. Can't rely on dealer network for service. Subject probably should be another post. Chuck
