General Discussion / Terrible Weather
« on: January 08, 2014, 06:11:34 pm »
We were wondering how all you guys who haven't gone to warmer climes this winter are faring during this last week's weather? Two or three weeks ago we had a terrible ice storm here in the DFW area but the last few days have just been low temperatures (teens and twenties) with no precipitation. Hope you're all ok!

Stay warm.  kumbaya

General Discussion / Awning Recall
« on: May 08, 2013, 08:54:38 pm »
Has anyone heard about a Dometic awning recall? RV Travel website posted the following:
    "In the most recent release of vehicle recall information, the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that several models of Dometic’s WeatherPro motor powered awnings could have an assembly problem that could cause these awnings to “unfurl unexpectedly,” at any time, with the RV at rest, or on the road. To that end, NHTSA is telling anyone who owns one of the awnings not to take the RV out on the road until the unit is repaired." There is a lot more info about specific models but we haven't had time to look up the model on our Cruiser. Don't remember if the Cruiser awnings are Dometic or not. Hopefully not.  :beg

General Discussion / Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all our Cruiser friends. Have a wonderful day! H-E-L-L-O
Marilyn & Paul

The reunion was held in Kerrville, Texas, September 6-11, and we got home September 12th. We've been meaning to send a post since we got back but haven't had the time. We had a great time and met lots of great Cruiser owners. The worst thing about the event was the 104° temperature the first couple of days but then it cooled off and was pleasant. The reunion will be held next year on September 5th - 10th in Petoskey, Michigan. Great location to combine a trip to Elkhart with the reunion. We recommend it highly.

While there we had a bad, bad news event but then very good news. About the second day we decided to dump using the Sani-Con. As soon as we turned the pump on, black water began pouring out! We turned off the pump as fast as possible but had a mess.  :help We couldn't determine what was happening and didn't know how we could find out. We hadn't taken a 3" hose (cleverly thinking we wouldn't need one). We went to the office to see if they had a hose and connectors. They had a hose but no connectors. The manager called the maintenance man who spent quite a while, and a few trips back to his rig, trying to help us out.

Then the good news! One of our Cruiser neighbors came by and mentioned that Kermit was just across the road working on another Cruiser. We didn't realize he was over there. We knew he was at the reunion but assumed he was just there for PR work. We found out his joining the reunions are definitely working trips for him. He spent all day (and maybe more) working on various problems people had. Paul went over to ask if he could help us. It turned out our neighbor had the same problem we did, broken bayonets that attach the pump to the rest of the system. When he finished hers he came over, crawled under our rig and proceeded to remove the pump. He told us to call the office when we got home and they would send a new pump part. He showed Paul how to install the new one. We still can't believe our good luck. Of all the places to find out our Sani-Con was leaking what better place than just across the road from Kermit!  heartshower

We called the office when we returned and Carol sent a new part. Paul installed it and so far it works like a charm. Hurray! Other than the pump problem everything else worked fine and we had a great trip.

We're leaving next week for a few days in Cloudcroft, New Mexico for their AspenFest. We've been there several times and always have fun, and the Aspens are beautiful.

General Discussion / Our new 2100!!!

Reporting in!! We picked up our 2013 2100 on Monday! Yeahhhhhh!  heartshower
We love it. As everyone has said all the folks at Phoenix have been super with explaining things and giving us the information we need. Have been back a couple of times for very small tweaks and they have taken care of them immediately. e.g. We asked for a narrow shelf in the bathroom behind the toilet going from the cabinet top over to the shower. They did a beautiful job. The lid would stay up which was fine with Marilyn but the toilet seat wouldn't stay up.   (WH) Oops. They shaved off a curved sliver so they both stay up. No problem! We weren't expecting a porcelain toilet with a foot flush but it has one and it's great. The latest models have a pull-down shade (with no interval stops) on the kitchen door and they had installed one. We asked for a venetian blind and they changed that without a problem. The passenger seatback in the 2100 is normally a bit straight up. They hinged the dining seatback to tip toward the table and that lets the passenger seat recline to be more comfortable.

It has the 32" TV, which is bigger than the our biggest TV at home!. The local reception is great even without the antennae up. Amanda said she thinks the only things new so far for the 2013 models are the 32" TV, the pin-hole finish ceiling material (looks good), and the option of wood floors. The wood floors are pretty but we stayed with the vinyl flooring. We like the maple finish of the cabinetry. The smaller space needs the lighter color to open it up. We got the cab screens from Amanda and love them. Well worth it.

We chose the standard paint finish with a Sterling swoosh and we really like it. We've had several people here at the campground compliment us on the Cruiser and we even gave a guy a brochure in the WalMart parking lot yesterday. Amanda gave us a few brochures for give-away.

We've probably forgotten some important details to relate but what it boils down to is "WE LOVE OUR CRUISER!!".
Thanks for all the helpful info we've gotten from the Forum these past months and for all your good wishes. tymote
Hope to see you all at the reunion in Kerrville, TX in Septemter.

General Discussion / Stormy Weather

We know folks on the Forum are located all over the U.S. We hope that none of you or your family or friends have been affected by the tornadoes that tore across several states the last couple of days. Take care, all of you!

Polls / Any pets travel with you?
« on: February 19, 2012, 05:54:18 pm »
How many of you have pets who regularly travel with you? What kind are they? What are the joys (and/or sorrows) of traveling with them? Do any of you have unusual pets? We met a couple last summer who regularly travel with their two parrots.

We have two Chihuahuas, Pepper and Ginger, who have been on several trips with us. They're very good travelers. We also have a cat, Mikey, who years ago, when he was too little to leave at home, went with us as far as Niagara Falls and back and did very well. Now we leave him at home with our daughter checking on him regularly.

We're looking forward to the Cruiser since the dogs can move back and forth between the cab and the rest of the rv easily. Now, we have to move them back and forth from the cab to the Lance and that's a lot of trouble.

General Discussion / Towing Dinghys
« on: February 16, 2012, 04:47:55 pm »
We know that towing dinghys or toads has been discussed on the Forum before but we need a little more information. When we get our new Cruiser (you hear that positive note?) we've been toying with the idea of getting a dinghy. Haven't had one before.

The Q & A's on the Forum have been interesting and helpful. We've also done a good bit of research on our own, mainly on the internet. We have a list of 15 vehicles based on low curb weight (2293 to 2877 lbs.). This was taken from the Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Towing Guide.

We haven't found any specific information that lets us know what makes one vehicle better than another. We know from Forum discussions that some of you have the Jeep Liberty. If anybody has any opinions on what really matters in selecting a dinghy we would appreciate hearing from you.
Paul & Marilyn  :)

General Discussion / Happy Valentines Day!
« on: February 13, 2012, 01:10:55 pm »
Just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Valentines Day tomorrow! We're still learning from all your posts. Have been going through them again and can now see all the photos we couldn't see before we officially got on the forum.
   We just got a BOGO coupon from IHop on-line so we're going there for lunch tomorrow to celebrate (you can tell we're big-time spenders!). What are you doing for the big day?
