RE: Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Just a quick update. Went out to the same state park the past week and proved that it was indeed the 2 minute delay at work - got E0 but zero ampere right after plugging in, then full power after waiting for a few minutes. Thanks much for the help, I love this forum!

RE: Winnebago Trend - First Drive Impressions

Con’s - Generator and coach battery only accessible from underneath :) I also raised this as a potential concern to a salesperson when I test drove a Trend. His response was: "why do you want to access them?". How important is this issue to some of you?

RE: Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Thanks, everyone! I have totally forgotten about the 2:16 delay thing. Most of the time, after plugging in the PI30 and connecting the power cable, I would go about doing other set up chores before entering the TT to turn on the A/C or other appliances. That takes a lot longer than 2 minutes. For the couple occasions that I described above, I think I probably had entered the TT right away after plugging in the PI30 (yes, it is a portable one) and cable trying to turn on something and found out that there's no power. Hopefully, that's what it was. I will definitely check this out the next time when I am out there camping. I might also get one of these polarity testers. It appears to be a very handy item to have around as an additional insurance thing or for checking against the PI30. S.K.

Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Following was a recent posting by me responding to another thread related to surge protectors: During a camping trip at a state park last year, we got no power to the TT when the PI 30 amp was connected. Once the PI 30 amp was removed, however, full power was flowing to the TT. We waited for a while, tried a couple more times and got the same result. It appeared that there was a fault with the power source and that the PI 30 amp was doing its job. So we were facing a dilemma: camping without power or taking a risk and connecting to the pedestal without using the PI, thus defeating the purpose of owning a PI 30 amp. What would you have done? Well, the same thing happened again at the same state park this week. When I connected my PI 30 Amp unit to the power pedestal, it read 116 V, E0 (which means "normal"). However, when I entered into the TT, there was no power - a separate meter that I had plugged into one of the receptacles in the TT read zero volt and zero amp. But as soon as I removed the PI 30 amp, I immediately got full power. Can anyone suggest what the problem was? Btw, I decided to take the risk and connected to the power pedestal directly. We used the ac, fridge, microwave, water heater...for the entire three days when we were there with no issues. Were we just lucky or that my PI 30 amp unit was not working properly?

RE: Loose Screw on the ProPride Hitch Head

Thanks everyone for responding, that's what I tend to think too. But I just wanted to be on the safe side by asking for advice from people like you. As a Hensley owner, I seriously doubt that has anything to do with your hitch. However, I would send that picture to the ProPride folks and ask them just to be on the safe side. Mike Good suggestion! I did email the picture to ProPride. Sean Woodruff, as usual, responded very quickly and confirmed that the screw was not a part of the ProPride hitch. He also suggested that it might have come from the electric tongue jack. I will go to the storage yard in a day or two to check this out.

Loose Screw on the ProPride Hitch Head

Just got back from our first camping trip of this season. As usual, the ProPride hitch performed admirably in making the towing experience a very comfortable one, However, after unhitching, I noticed that there's a 3/4" long stainless bolt/screw sitting on the top of the hitch head (please see photo below). I have no idea where did this screw come from nor how long it has been sitting there. Could anyone who has a ProPride tell whether there is a possibility that this was something worked loose from the ProPride hitch or that it was completely unrelated to the hitch (for example, from the electric jack)? I did examine the hitch carefully and couldn't see any obvious indication that this was a part of the hitch. It also appears to be too small for being part of the ProPride, but I thought I better be careful when there is any possibility of a potential safety issue. Thanks! http://i.imgur.com/0A2diE3l.jpg

RE: NeXus Phantom 25P

I am looking at possibly purchasing a Nexus Phantom 25P with the full wall slideout. This would be my first RV, so wondering if there is anyone out there who currently has one and if so, what do they think of it. I would be bringing an inflatable kayak, a bike and a dog and a cat with me. :-) Looking for something relatively easy to drive anywhere. I'm not particularly handy, so would like something that is easy to operate. This would be my first RV. Thank you! You might be interested in the following thread that I started not long ago on this particular model. Nexus 25P Discussion

RE: New Nexus Phantom 25P With Walk-Around Bed

Just so everyone knows... I too am interested in this model, although my purchase date would be late next year. I was following this thread about how useful is it when the slide is closed. I emailed Claude Donati President of NeXus Rv about shooting a quick video about putting the slide in and how the bed was and could you open the bathroom to use it.... I also sent him a link to this thread so he could see people are interested in the closed up functioning of the unit. 1st of all here's a BIG thumbs up for him to put his email out there for direct contact! I emailed him at 5:45 Monday night, 7:50 this morning I received the following from him: "Thank you for your interest in the 25P, it is a great floorplan. I have forwarded your request and we are preparing the video and the photos for your review. Thanks again for the opportunity to earn you business. claude" So as soon as it's posted, or I receive a link to the video I will post it for all to see I find this kind of thing to be excellent customer service!! As the OP of this thread, I would like to thank Gocntry for contacting Nexus on everyone's behalf and Hope for sharing the link. I couldn't belief that Nexus has already shot and posted the video that they had promised Gocntry only this morning. What a company in responding to customer needs! You have to watch the video to appreciate the ingenuity of the Nexus engineers - what an innovative design! The beauty of it is that it also appears to be a rather robust design as well. I like it very much and will serious consider getting such an unit. BTW, did I say that I like the company too? Here is another question, how does the outside storage look like for this model?

RE: New Nexus Phantom 25P With Walk-Around Bed

Interesting concept. I wonder how well a mattess topper or replacement mattress would work out. I'd like to see video of slide being retracted. I wonder if you have to push down and guide mattress into place. Still, as mentioned, an innovative concept! Thanks for reporting back on your conversation with Nexus! I called and spoke to a salesman. He says it is a foam mattress, and the foot of the bed is hinged to fold down when the slide comes in..... A "down" bed must mean it's a regular floor level bed, not up in the cabover? Yes, thanks for providing the insight, Snowman. A hinged-bed? This is indeed an ingenious design by Nexus! Agree, Hotbyte, I would like to see a video on how the bed operates too. Also, for those of you who have had a foam mattress, how do you like it vs a regular mattress?

RE: New Nexus Phantom 25P With Walk-Around Bed

If I had heard it correctly, I think the term "a down walk-around bed" was used twice in the video to describe the bed. So what is a "down" walk-around bed? OH...he was saying "down" not da.... :) Yes, that's what I thought I had heard....wondering what others think when listening to that video.:h

RE: New Nexus Phantom 25P With Walk-Around Bed

The Nexus RV website (www.nexusrv.com) now has the videos up for the two new models; The Phantom 25P as well as the Phantom 32SC. YouTube has the same videos with better quality: Phantom 25P Phantom 32SC Thanks for the video. If I had heard it correctly, I think the term "a down walk-around bed" was used twice in the video to describe the bed. So what is a "down" walk-around bed? Could it mean that the bed is actually stored in the vertical position when the slide is in and then drops down when it is in use (like a Murphy bed)? I still tend to guess that it is either a two-piece mattress or a "Murphy bed like" arrangement. The length of the bed just somehow appears to be longer than the available space when the slide is in. But again, this is only from me eye-balling it from the floor plan schematic on their website and also from the video. Just curious.

New Nexus Phantom 25P With Walk-Around Bed

Has anyone seen this new Nexus model at the Hersey Show? Looks like a very attractive unit - less than 25 ft but with a walk-around bed and a full wall slide. However, couldn't figure out how the bed actually works as it appears from the floor plan on their website that the length of the mattress is longer than the space available when the slide is in. Does anyone know whether it uses a two-piece mattress like a number of other small Cs such as the Navion 24G or that the mattress is stored in a upright position?
