New owners of 2017 Phoenix 34RD

So, my wife and I just bit the bullet and brought home a used 1 year old Phoenix 34RD five and promptly turned into "FROGS". We upgraded from a 2010 Conquest Lite 269BHL. Our new unit seems to be in pretty good condition with minor trim issues. No real problem there. Except for a 3" drop on connection (to be taken care of shortly) we had no issue s towing.
My main worry is that the unit has the second A/C in the bedroom and the dealer was not able to tell me how tall this thing really is. Once I get the truck leveled up, I'm going to loose that 3 inches. Can anyone give me an idea? We got home from Hanover,PA to Harrisburg ok but it still makes me nervous.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Best way to find out height is to climb up on top and run a tape down the side then you know for sure.

Thanks SeaDog. I'm trying to stay out of the cold, wet conditions we're having here in central PA. Getting up on the roof in these conditions is not my idea of "fun"...

Looks like you bought the unit I traded. It was ordered I March of 2016 and probably was the last production run of that model. The Shasta killed it so you wont find many references to a 2017. Figure its a 2016 on a 2017 frame. Anyway, specs are something like 152 inches as the published height. (Double check that). The dealer said published height included 2nd a/c. I asked Shasta the same question and they gave the same answer. FYI the black and grey valves are labeled backwards. If you need anything else feel free to PM me.
