Tips and Tricks / Re: Deinstall Coffee Maker from Cupboard door
« on: August 03, 2010, 06:29:41 am »
I also have the same model, and one of the first things I did was to remove the coffee maker from the cupboard.
Plenty of room in the cupboard for more useful items. It would appear I was lucky and avoided your problem.

Hi Ron
The PC is exactly the same as American spec, left hand drive etc. The only alterations we have to have done is the vehicle lights have to be altered to  comply with UK regulations and have in addition to the internal electric 12v and 110v system a number of 240v outlets for UK items (kettles, toaster, TV's etc.)
There are approx 10,000+ American RV's in the UK. Three clubs which specify you have to own an American RV to be a member and attend their Rallies and other club activities. Other motorhome clubs available have mixed European RV's but also accept American RV's as members.
Two of the main problems to owning American RV's in the UK is the lack of servicing and repair facilities available and narrow roads in Europe.
One other big problem for all motorists in the UK is the price of fuel and American engines are very thirsty. Despite the problems it is still a very worhwhile way of enjoying life and I have owned and been driving American RV's for 20 years.

Having the only PC in the United Kingdom (2007 2900 w/two slideouts) I often get asked what is it and where did I get it from. I also have several old and newish brochures to show and distribute when they have a look inside. Most
viewers seem pleasantly surprised at the quality and space available. My previous RV's were one C Class and three
A Class before I downsized.

I had exactly the same problem with my 2007 29'. The wiring at the switch connection was corroded and as you say no power was getting to the switch.
Cleaned and reconnected all OK

The ladder on my 2007 PC 2900 had a manufacturers self adhesive sticker on the bottom rung of the ladder which said there was a 300lb limit. This weight limit I would think strong enough for two bicycles.

General Discussion / Re: Experience with the company

I am sorry to say my experiences with the Company seem different to USA residents.
My 2007 Cruiser 2900 with two slide-outs was imported new to the United Kingdom by Midland International Motorhomes of Coventry.
Although mainly minor problems the importers said they could not obtain the parts required to fix the faults, despite  emails and phone calls to the Company. My most recent experience of lack of Customer Service was a couple of weeks ago when I sent an email directly to Kermit asking for assistance and he did not even have the decency to reply. I still think the Cruiser is good value for the money however its a pity overseas customers do not seem to get any Customer Service at all.
Having owned and had imported four new USA 'A' Class and one new 'C' Class RV's from other manufacturers in the past twenty years with no problems obtaining spares or advice, Phoenix do not seem to care as much as other manufacturers for customers outside the USA.

Hi Bobbie,
We also have a PC 2950 made in 2007 which leaves metal shavings on the carpet at the foot of the bed, the shavings are also corroded. No wood shavings or copper wire have appeared. Lubrication has been done every 6months but it did not increase the amount of shavings, if anything the amount of shavings has gradually got less with time. Our bedroom slide also sounds noisier than the lounge slide which does not leave any shavings. Living in the UK we do not have many RV service centres. The dealer who imported our RV is a 260mile round trip and as our Cruiser is the only one in the UK I do not think they have the facilities to rectify it anyway.
I hope you have more success in the USA and would be interested to hear how you get on if your problems are solved. 
Regards Chris

General Discussion / Auto-Drain Valves on waste tanks
« on: April 21, 2009, 01:47:32 am »
Hi :help
The auto-drain valves for the waste tanks on my 2002 29ft Cruiser are not working :'(
There is no light displayed when the switches are operated. Are there fuses or breakers in the circuit which could possibly be the problem and where are they located? Unfortunately living in the UK there are very few dealers who are able to assist including the company that imported the RV into the country for me!
Thanks in anticipation

I bought my new 2007 Phoenix Cruise 2900 with double slideouts by ordering it through an English Dealer who arranged for its importation and delivery to the United Kingdom (I believe it still is the only PC in the UK).
Previously I have had 4 new RV's from the USA. First was a 'C' Class followed by 3 'A' Class.
A couple of points concerning my downsizing.
First: Getting used to the reduced external locker space. I tow a Suzuki Grand Vitara 4 wheels down which I now use as an extra 'locker'  :lol.
Second: I was surprised how poor the turning circle of the E450 chassis was compared to previous 'A' class Motorhomes owned :beg.
Apart from the above I am very pleased with the Cruiser and would recommended it to anyone wishing to downsize or looking for a good well made reasonably priced B+.
