I can't answer the mileage question because I don't track mileage. The performance changed dramatically. Seat of the pants tells me more horsepower and more torque. Transmission shift point improvement is most noticeable on my five speed tranny. No more hunting for gears, revving to 4500 RPM and late down shifts. A pleasant improvement for the money. Even my co-pilot noticed the difference!

Tips and Tricks / Re: Lawn chairs on ladder

I figure if the ladder will hold my 225# body it can handle 35# of lawn chairs. I've used the CW ladder rack for 3 years without any problems. I checked again today. No cracks and no loose screws on the ladder.

For your first winter in Florida, I would suggest a few weeks here and a few weeks there. Mix it up and get the feel of the area. Our first year included Sarasota, Orlando, St Augustine and the Panhandle east of Destin. While we were in each area we visited other campgrounds to see what was available. Weather, location, traffic and amenities are considerations. Florida also has some great state parks with some having full hookups. Make your reservations early as campgrounds and resorts fill up fast. Now is the time to book. Typically the warmest weather is south of Tampa. Also the most expensive. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies. I have a pressure regulator set at 45psi. I was hoping to run higher for more pressure. I think I'll stay at 45psi.

The timing for this change could not be worse for Phoenix Cruiser. The reason Kermit went to direct sales was the onset of the recession of 2008. RV dealers and manufacturers were going belly up one after another. Historically a recession occurs every 8-9 years. We are currently in the 10th year of a growing economy. History predicts we're overdue for another recession. Now is not the time for PC to share the pie with a retailer and expand the line. I wish PC the best of luck. If they can sell a new 3100 for $200K that should make my 2012 3100 worth more at resale or trade in.

Lots of posts on water pressure but I can't find a post stating the maximum water pressure that a 2012 PC can handle without damage to the water lines. Anybody know?

I can't log into the travel site so I can't register online or print the damn form. I want to be included in the Charleston Rally. If I'm unable to secure a reservation, I'M DONE with the PC Cruiser Travel Club! Hell I might just throw in the towel now. I think I will. Bye!

A new thermostat is less than $100. Might be worth a try.

It might be written on the hitch. My 2012 3100 is 5000#.

General Discussion / Re: Satellite TV

Headed for Florida on the 15th for 2 to 3 months to let double knee replacement heal. Longest trip ever. We have been thinking of getting satellite TV but have many questions. We see Dish has a program were you can call to turn it on and off. Is Dish or Direct better. How about antennas, roof top or carry out.  I see some info that you can only get local stations on the western satellites; true or false. Any thoughts on systems, equipment, or where to buy. Thanks. :help

If you have Dish or Direct at home, I'd check with them first. You might be able to add a receiver for a small fee.I went with Dish for RV. Easy to turn service on and off either by phone, app or text. Satellite (antenna) can be quite large. They're are not heavy but take up a lot of space. I pull a towed so I just put in there. A roof mount could increase the height of the RV. Many models will recieve western and eastern satellites. That's one reason why I chose the Winegard Pathway X2. A free standing unit with auto search and the ability to hook up two TVs. You'll also need one or two recievers like a Wally or something similar and a length of coax. Hooking it up is simple if you have a two inputs on the outside of your PC. One marked CABLE the other marked SAT. If you just have one input marked CABLE, hookup becomes a bit more complicated. I purchased a Pathway X2 and a Wally package from Amazon Warehouse for $285. This was supposed to be a used or reconditioned unit. When I recieved it, it was in factory packaging and looked new. It works perfectly. I'd post a clicky if I knew how. Go to Amazon homepage. In the search box there's a drop down arrow. Click on it and select Amazon Warehouse. Enter the satellite you want. Hit search. Good luck with those new knees!

Hang in there. I would be pi**ed too if had your coach. I would want things fixed sooner rather than later. My gut feeling is PC WILL make it right. Ron was just relating a previous story about how not to handle a complaint. I don't believe Ron was pointing a finger at you. My Mama always told be "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar". You have well documented your unfortunate situation. I hope and  believe PC will do the right thing. Keep us informed.

General Discussion / Re: Surge protector

I had a similar problem with PI EMS. Mine would just shut down. No error code and it didn't restart until I unplugged it, waited 30 seconds and plugged it back in. Then it would work but I never knew when it would happen again. Called PI and they said rain water would get into the plug receptacle  and cause this problem. Emailed photos and receipt of purchase and PI promptly sent me a new unit at no cost. Fine customer service! New unit has a plastic rain protector over the plug receptacle. So far, So good.

We feel the Oxygenics RV Shower Head made a noticeable difference in the water pressure. In our opinion it's well worth the price.

OK. I think I understand your question.
1. You have the TV connected to the Wally via RCA connecters.
2. Shut off the an antenna booster inside the upper right cabinet.
3. With the TV remote select source.
4. Slowly toggle thru sources until Dish appears. Sometimes takes a second or two to display.
5. Follow on screen instructions.

Good luck.
