Phoenix 33CK

Is there any problem changing out normal light bulbs to LED? Including the tail/stop lights?

no problem a lot of folks have done that. they are much brighter tail lights. The cost is higher being you have to buy the tail light. Can't just change the bulb.

I was concerned mainly with the tail lights. Walmart and farm and fleet at starting to stock plug in LEDs. I tried the change with my old 2004 gmc/trail lite, and they wouldn't work.

I'm having a concern now with the on-air antenna system. To best describe the experience, it sucks. At first it would not work at all, and the dealer said that some outlets were not hooked up, and crossed with the satellite. Now, the picture quality is so bad because of pixilation, it's hard to watch. The booster on/off does not seem to change anything. Anybody else having these problems?

Its been a few months since my last post. J and J Camper has diligently took my list of fixes after a trip from Illinois to North Carolina and back, then to Washington State and back. It was l long list of annoying little things, but all is good when they put it to bed. They even fixed (as good as they could) the antenna by taking it apart and putting it back together again, I got twice the number of channels. I would like to hear from other Phoenix owners and how they are using there 5vers.

We just bought a 2016 Phoenix 33CK. I will definitely check out the antenna situation when picking it up. Anything (besides everything) we should be on the look out for?

Just look at my threads. Main thing to look for is the ends of the flex pipe when filling the fresh tank thst there are no holes in it feom a heat gun. Next make sure the all the fittings on the hot water heater are soldered ( mine wasnt on the output side, and flooded the basement). Make sure the two small windows on the rear side are installed properly and dont leak. Check all the 75 ohm cable hook ups. Some were on wrong connections, some were not hooked ip at all. Extend the awning and look at the wire covers on the front leg that it is secured. Try to pull the bottom plug and of it comes off you will have to silicon in back in, otherwise you will loose them. Be careful of the unfinished cdx stran board on the bed (the splinters are huge). Check the light switches in the slides. Last thing i can think of off hand, if you use the clothes bar in the front, you need to devise a support rod. It will pull out.

I have to say, i make several trips back the dealer, whom fixed everything. Last summer we went from Illinois to North Carolina and back, then illinois to washington (seattle) and back, with no problems. Im planning on a Coos Bay Ore trip this year. Get the bugs out and you will enjoy it.
