I have this same gap on my 2400, when the slide is out there's an opening on the slide floor that allows cold and critters access to the inside of the coach. We camp in freezing temps, the opening is below the closet, when we open the closet it feels like a freezer in there. We boondock in the desert, last winter I saw a man put a 5 foot rattlesnake in a barrel, I couldn't help but think how easily that snake could crawl into my PC. The opening allows the slide to go out without interfering with an electrical post that is mounted solid, I've seen this on cheap trailers. A man told me to cut a pool noodle to fit in the opening but I'd have to remember to take it out when I put the slide in. I asked the factory if they could eliminate that opening and they didn't think so. No one seems to be too concerned about this. Any ideas.

Custerhawk you're singing to the wrong choir, not only are the Phoenix Cruiser tank capacities small but they're also incorrect. I complained about this same thing on this forum but was told Phoenix Cruiser doesn't have to give the correct tank capacities.

Thanks for the replies, I think all is well. 

General Discussion / AGM/SLA Batteries
« on: December 31, 2020, 09:09:50 am »
I've replaced my flooded lead acid batteries with SLA (Sealed Lead Acid Batteries). As I understand, SLA batteries and AGM batteries have pretty much the same charge rates. I have the multi stage converter which is SLA/AGM compatible for charging, my solar controller is set for SLA/AGM charging, but my 2017 Ford E350 alternator is charging the batteries at a constant 14.4 volts. Is that a little high? I don't think there's any adjustment on the engine alternator? The factory offers both flooded lead acid and agm batteries but I don't think they make any adjustments for charging the different batteries. The only adjusting I think that can be done is on the back of the solar controller.

Garmp, I can't help you on those new gauges but here's what I do. My 2400 has the 23 gal black tank which is actually less than that, we find with the two of us we can go 5 days before dumping.  We have the 35 gal grey tank so that always out lasts our black tank. I write down in my journal every time I dump, so if I need to I can look back and count the days. Plus I have a pretty good feel of when the tanks are getting close to full. Beer drinkers need to reduce the number of days between dumps. Your gray tank is smaller so you'd have to experiment. I never have trusted those idiot lights. Your 2351D sure looks like it has a lot of open space, I think you were smart trading up to a roomier floor plan.

Thor has bought Tiffin Motorhome Company, I tried to post the thread but it wouldn't take.

Would it be to much for a new purchaser of a 150,000 dollar Phoenix Cruiser to ask the company to please test all systems to make sure everything is working properly upon delivery?

My previous 2 rv's were Winnebago's, there quality isn't as good as it once was, how ever, every Winnebago is run through Big Bertha. it's a power washer that covers the whole motorhome and is equivalent to a 2 inch rain. Winnebago's have there share of problems but it's rare to fine one that leaks.

What's the difference between an Absorbed Glass Matt (AGM) battery and a Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery?

I have the Progressive Dynamics  PD 4560 3 stag converter. I gave them a call and that converter is set up for both wet cell and AGM batteries, no adjustments necessary. My solar controller is Samlex scc-30AB, I called them and they said there are settings on the back of the display, I took out the display and there are 5 tiny switches, looking at the manual they were set for AGM batteries. The only difference is the AGM setting charges at a lower rate. There are no adjustments for the chassis alternator. Thanks all for your replies.

I haven't either.

I have my inverter, converter turned around. It's the converter charger that I was wondering if there was an adjustment for AMG batteries. I don't think there is.

You can get a PC with flooded wet cell batteries or AGM batteries, I got the wet cell and am replacing them with AGM. A friend said I'll have to change settings on the chassis alternator, the inverter, and solar controller. I can find nothing about this in my manuals. I called the factory and was basically told the settings were the same for both batteries. Does anyone know?


Carol, miy PC had a leak on the cab floor drivers side. PC ran wires through the firewall (that's behind the brake pedal) and did not caulk where the wires came threw. My Ford dealer found the problem.

The slide leaks when it is in, you are correct about the seal around the slide. I've actually had 6 leaks, 3 in the slide. I pointed out to the last repair shop that it was the main seal across the top of the slide, It stopped leaking in steady rain but still leaks a little in a down pour.
 My last motorhome, a 2011 Winnebago View had 239,000 miles when I sold it. Last I heard it had 260,000 miles and still going strong. It never had a leak.
