General Discussion / Re: Wood floors
« on: May 11, 2016, 04:23:07 pm »
We have the Pergo wood floors in our 2016 2351. We have a 12 year old Beagle. We use three area rugs on the floor for trapping dirt  and dog hair in the summer and to keep yours toes from curling when hitting the floor in the winter. Guess who gets to shake the rugs. But the DW vacuums with a small hand held. This works well for us and no sign of wear but have only had our Phoenix six months. :)

General Discussion / Factory visit

After having my leveling jacks repaired nearby, I stopped at the factory. Had a metallic rattle in the microwave. They told me to pull it in and started working on it. There are four Quigley 4X4 units on the line, two nearly finished. One had a huge front bumper installed and one had a top and bottom two tone paint job. Both were 2552 type and very nice. If one of these are yours, they are nearly finished. I tried to get Earl to swap me even but he wouldn'the go for it. Also, a new Dolly Varden was pulling out for delivery to Japan. And, no more rattle.  :-D

General Discussion / Leveling jacks
« on: May 06, 2016, 05:40:13 pm »
While driving down I-88, heard a loud bang, more banging and scraping. Found that the leveling jack pump assembly mounted under the unit broke the mounting bracket and was dragging on the road. Called Kermit and sent photos. Kermit called back and told me that they do not install the jacks and had sent photos to Stuarts Service who called me within an hour.  They install the jacks and we made an appointment for today.  Chuck Stuart repaired the unit and upgraded it to a full auto style for free  and paid for my trip from PA.. Now that's service.  tymote

 While back at the factory for other work, I told Bob, the production manager about the leak. He had someone recaulk the seams between the passenger door and entry door. No more leaks. 2o2

General Discussion / Dolly Varden
« on: April 13, 2016, 10:20:54 am »
Many know that Dolly Varden are a northern fish like trout. I walked into the PC factory and there were two Dolly Varden being prepend for shipment. Nope, not the fish kind, but Dolly Varden RV's. Huh. Come to find out that PC builds Dolly Varden RV 's for shipment to Japan .  It is a true Class C on Ford chassis, sleeps six, not a bad looking unit.  They are to be used for RV rentals. While wandering around the plant, found three Quigley 4X4 units under construction, all presold units. They do sit higher (5 inches).  They are so busy they are short of chassis. Only one MB on the line. Several couples touring the plant with  Earl. All seems well. 2o2

I couldn't believe it when I read your entry. I am sitting in my pc 2351 in a campground 15 miles from the factory. I just picked up my unit after having the rear cap replaced from a self inflicted crunch. I also had them do warranty work on some squeaks and rattles but also included gasoline smell while refueling and two flat tires. I picked up our new 2016 unit in December and left for two weeks in Florida. First morning on the road, I did my walk around and found a flat tire. Changed it (6 below) and drove on. Next morning another flat same location. Was of course a bad valve extender. PC changed out all extenders. Must have gotten a bad batch. I checked units under construction for problems with the fuel fill. It is all Ford. Plant manager (Bob) thinks the fill door compartment wasn'the sealed well enough. They  revealed it. I still think it is one of the best brands out there.

I have a 2016 2351 on an F-450 chassis. I have a Safe-t-steer and a trac bar from a previous unit. I have found no reason to install either on the new PC. It does not sway nor wander and is very stable. The ride is very good (for a F450)

Same as above. We do use two area carpets. Guess who gets to shake them out.  Anyway, we have a small handheld vacuum and that duster thingy and that is all we need. As for heat pumps. We had two in our previous DP. They were not very effective for heat. On a recent trip to Florida, we got to use the a/c twice and heat almost every morning.  :'(

We took delivery of our 2351 in mid December. Left for three weeks in Florida Jan 4th in 6 degree weather. As to the small bathroom; yep, it is small but it gets the job done. We had a taller dome installed in the shower as I'm 6'3" and that works well. Other than extra towel racks and a TP rack, there is not much else you can do with it. We find it a very minor problem. We also have insulated windows, extended kitchen counter, euro chair, but have a double recliner instead of the dinette. Wife sleeps on recliner and finds it comfortable. We had dash GPS,Radio, and back up camera installed. If you are having a back up camera installed up between the sunvisors, I think that is the best way. My unit is at the factory and is having the back up camera changed over. We came down from a Newmar DP and so far like our PC better for traveling.

Our 2016 2351 is at the factory having some work done. I wonder if you got to the factory and if they may have shown you our unit. (Montana plates) If so, what did you think. Honestly!!

I think repositioning the back up camera is a personal choice. As I have not gotten our unit back from the factory yet, I cannot tell you if I made the right choice. I can tell you that while driving down the road and having to lean into the center of the cab to see the gps, or the back up camera is a royal pain. Also the radio is a bit complicated to operate but plays nicely. We shall see.

Interesting bath setup. We also have a 2351. Took possession in Dec/2015. We also deleted the kitchen pantry and extended the kitchen counter and have same drawer setup. We have a bed/couch in the slide which works well for us. The only thing I would advise against is the dash radio/gps/cam. It is unusable in sunlight because of a reflection of the passenger in the face of unit and small for us (old eyes) I am having the back up camera installed above the rear view mirror (no longer a Sony)

We took possession of our 2351 in December. First trip out (two weeks in Florida) we also had water on the floor behind the passenger seat after a hard rain. Our unit is presently back at the factory getting self inflicted damaged rear cap replaced. Will let you know what they found when I get the unit back.
