2017 4x4 Phoenix Cruiser for sale with 32,250 miles. In the last year I have replaced the awning, the batteries with AGM 6volt, the mattress with one that is firm, the water connection with a new brass valve system and  I have removed the dinette, which will go with the coach, with two lazy boy rocker recliners. I am in the process of reupholstering the drivers and passengers seats. The coach has spent its down time stored in doors. It is located in Montgomery,Texas.

Please contact gregcowart1951@gmail.com

Thanks for looking and the price is negotiable.

A clear hose allows you to see if there is any water in the drain line. It also allows you to observe any remaining solids when flushing the black tank. But I agree the hose lift is the way to make sure all the water is out of the tube.

If your charge controller is further away from the batteries like parkgt, make sure you use a large wire size from there to the batteries. You want very little voltage drop.

It is a good idea to have an air gap under the panels, it helps to keep them cooler and prolong their life.  Mine are mounted to unistruls that are screw to the roof.  Wiring comes through the roof above the front most compartment on the drivers side.  My Victron charge controller is mounted there and the wiring runs down behind the bulkhead, then under the van and back to my lithium batteries.  Used this gland with 3M VHB tape and screws covered with Dicor.

I don't see how a clear hose "solves" the issue?  IMO it just lets you confirm whether you have one or not.  I also do the hose lift.

The 2018 2552 I bought last year had some minor roof issues.  Rather than worrying about my roof I had it coated with Flex Armor.  Covered the skylight in the bathroom that does little except turn the bathroom into a hot house and it is an area prone to leaks.  It goes from the back to the front and down onto the fiberglass cab cap. On the sides it covers the screws and molding. The edge visible from below is dark grey to match the paint scheme and the top is bright white.  Tough stuff with a life time warranty.  Can even walk over the skylight.  It is cooler and quieter than before.  The piece of mind and no maintenance make it well worth it.

General Discussion / Re: Inverter "Remote" Madness

Evidently, Phoenix has used varied locations for placing the electrical components.  In my rig, I found the Inverter under the wall cabinet and storage area that are adjacent to the refrigerator.  The location places the Inverter / Converter / Electrical Panel in contiguous spaces.

When first confirming the existing inverter was defective, using various contortions, I wriggled access to the front panel of the Xantrex Inverter.  Physically inserting the Remote Control device in the accommodating front panel receptacle, I confirmed the combination doesnít work.  I am content thinking it is failed.  Seemingly not uncommon, others report they have experienced abbreviated usage from theirs.

Although I havenít had the opportunity to replace the old unit, I am traveling early next month to return to the project and complete the exchange before continuing on a cross country vacation.  The inverter location presents a challenge requiring the cabinetry be disassembled for unobstructed access.

I have considered the risks of ordering a rival product.  Wiggle room and compartment space limitations reduce my range of selection array.  In the interest of making the DIY project simple, I am planning to order a Xantrex 807-2000 Freedom XI Inverter.  Footprint is essentially the same size.

I've owned 3 Phoenix Cruisers over the past 8 years. Every one was an upgrade in size and age. They all had similar issues with areas of the fiberglass roof separating from the roof substrate board. But none proved to be an issue. The worst one I owned was a 2005 2351 that came from Texas. Very little of the fiberglass remained glued down. I think the separation is caused from the adhesive breaking down from heat/sun. But never a leak.

Thanks for the insight. I've looked back through the archives and I don't see a lot of concerns about this issue, so I'm assuming the roof will be fine.
