hi folks Chris Anderson with Mount comfort RV today a Phaeton just rolled in this is a 2017 48h in the Rustic Canyon exterior and. I wanted to just since it's already parked out front we haven't had a chance to wash it yet or anything, but.
So, it's got low road grime on it, but, but it was parked in a good spot to do a quick video and let's do just that. So, beautiful exterior from Tiffin as always just as we'd expect this is like. I said the 48h floor plans we have a 40 foot coach 380 horsepower Cummins engine in this and it does have hydronic heating.
So, we've got an aqua hot system in it as well. So, that's unlimited hot water nice quiet heating no propane to mess with on the heating side of things, if you're not fully familiar with aqua hot please give me a call be glad to walk you through the all the benefits of that. So, let's take a look in some of these compartments of course you'll have dual fuel fill you would expect that on a coach of the silk inside here we can see our hydraulic pump and a nice deep storage Bay straight back okay under this way we actually have our pullout tray these work pretty smoothly they shipped us some extra porcelain tiles from the same batch and you can see our two folding chairs there that go with the dinette another huge storage Bay now we didn't put a tray in this one you know there's differing opinions and we never know what the next customer through the door is going to want, but you know in one sense it's nice to have another tray here which you can do and another sense you'll lose some height when when you put the trays in.
So, you've actually got a little more storage without the tray not quite as accessible, but more. So, pluses and minuses like everything in the RV world it's a trade off now check that out nice big screen LG that's got to be about a 40 inch TV. I didn't see that in writing, but that's my my guesstimate there with an LG sound bar above right out here under your main awning that's that's obviously pretty pretty slick setup great place to have it our main awning right here at the carefree box style awning it does have an LED light built into it.
So, that's nice let's see back up a little bit not a ton of storage, but as our viewers know you'll use every single spot we give you. So, nice little compartment here these are our chassis batteries and a chassis battery disconnect so, if you do put the coach into storage you can disconnect that and that takes care of the batteries running down at least though they won't drain quickly let's put it that way some more chassis electronics here another little storage compartment okay we have a rear radiator coach our tow hitch down below get a good shot of that it's all prepped for towing back up camera way up high molded into the cap instead of something that kind of bolts on this coach does have a ladder on it as well a lot of the high-end diesel products are going away from the ladders and. I understand that from an aesthetics point of view, but boy having a ladder built in sure is a nice thing to have too so.
I'm not sure exactly how. I feel about that, but this one does have the ladder again they give you even though it's a small compartment back here by the engine they do give you the storage compartment because we know you will use it there's a 50 amp Shore power cord on a power reel anybody that's ever wrestled one of these short power cords knows the reel is a very good thing our de F tank hit is here this is diesel exhaust fluid this is just after treatment for the engine this is just part of the emissions program all diesels have these today again, if you're not familiar this is another one there's a wonderful explanation. I'd be glad to get into it with you, if you need more information on de F that's please give me a call at our phone number right here say we did that all right we have our wet Bay everything is very well labeled in here as you can see your knife valves are easy to get to in there inside of this heated compartment which is nice.
So, you don't have to worry about the cold temperatures we have a whole house water filtration system our water hose is on a reel as well to even they throw in the first bottle of hand sanitizer for you hot and cold water out here got a black tank flush out here very well insulated doors as always from Tiffany. So, moving right along there's our aqua hot you get a good shot of that this supply this is the main heating system of the coach and it is also the water heating system of the coach and it is fired primarily by diesel fuel it does work off of electric as well, but primarily fired by diesel fuel. So, you're not having to deal with propane there's the other half of that huge storage bay we talked about on the other side here's the other half of the pull out tray this tray does pull either direction ok and then it will get a good shot here you can see all of your house battery now the house batteries have a disconnect of their own again we can shut this coach off when we put it in storage this is on a pullout tray.
So, battery maintenance is very very easy even battery replacement years down the road is very very easy with this okay moving on here's some of the chassis electronics that you see in here and then there's a little release up here in the corner there we go oh look what happened here it's raring to go we have a 10k Onan diesel generator on a pull-out slide how slick is that that's a big generator for 40-footer most 40-foot coaches are going to have six or eight thousand generators in them pack up to ten thousand generator alright we'll shut that. I know what we really want to see is on the inside. So, without further ado let's go in okay let's check out the cockpit area we're on a Freightliner chassis first of all.
So, we have smartwheel built in that's not not just because it's a Freightliner doesn't mean you get smart well that's still an option, but in this case we have it so. I can do my wipers my brights my cruise control my hands never have to leave the wheel. So, that's nice over here did the drivers left we're going to have a few things let's start way back here we have an H WH hydraulic leveling system that's all auto level.
So, literally to level this coach you do it while your engines still running you pull in ya pop the parking brake put it in neutral on your transmission pad and then hit Auto level it will dump the air out of the coach automatically the jacks come down they level the coach it's really pretty seamless good spot for the cup holder right here that would be a very comfortable spot to have it controls for the air horn the exhaust brake the mirrors this adjust your mirror that's the heat for the mirror this is a little toggle that controls your trip tech computer which is actually built-in right up here that's going to do things like tell you how many hours on the generator it tells you you know engine hours and all types of little basic chassis Diagnostics this is like your mouse, if this was a computer this is the mouse controls for headlights here these are adjustable pedals that's actually a good thing to get into because at this price point a lot of coaches have truck style pedals in them these are adjustable. I have have lost sales because we'll have the right customer on the right coach, but the because it has the truck style pedals, if one of them a lot of times, if the lady is really short she's 5 foot tall or something she can't reach these pedals because they're not adjustable in their the truck style and you're reaching way up there with these number one they're easier to reach number two they are adjustable. So, that's nice of course you have tilt and telescoping wheel all of our gauge cluster up here move over we have radio back up camera heat controls the step cover your steps won't normally be exposed like that going down the road you just press the step cover switch look at that.
So, that takes the steps out of the equation. So, whoever's in the passenger seat their feet aren't dangling and it comes up flush with the floor and yes you can stand on that all right in the middle. I wish more manufactures did this they bring the wood up into the dash area a lot of times everything's plastic up here and.
I think that kind of looks cheap sometimes and let's face it at this price point we don't need to be looking cheap we've brought some of the cabinetry up here with a nice grab handle as you're coming in of course the passenger seat reclines okay. So, you're sitting in the passenger seat you want to have a laptop or just a place to set your sandwich it's there one of the things. I like about the Tiffin coach is.
I'm going to do this kind of across the board they're multiplex lighting systems are very nice, but when you walk in the coach you can just take and hit one, button here and find the right, button now. I've got my thumb on it and boom everything lights up. So, one master light switch you you enter this coach at night it's dark you don't have to worry about, if the boogeyman hiding somewhere just hit one, button and she's all lit up.
So, let me get my jacket off and we'll take another look around alright here we are we're inside our 2017 Tiffin Phaeton for tah English chestnut on the cabinets. So, and. I believe they call this yes vintage interior have some nice kind of textured pattern almost looks like an alligator suitcase or something on the window treatments here very cool it's got a very cool look to it.
I like it we option this in with the sectional which is nice gives you a nice wraparound seating for the family a very comfortable chair over here on the driver's side, if you will on the passenger side we have our dinette a lot of people really like having the dinette on the passenger side or on the door side of the coach just because that's always where your patio is in a campground scenario. So, that window would have your family and friends outside relaxing. So, you can kind of keep an eye on things there you do have a nice little pull up here that you get two USB ports down here and two 110.
So, plug in any and all the toys to to recharge Tiffin's really tough to beat when it comes to the amount of stories they give you how well they like their coaches up and the fact that all their cabinetry is all solid wood all the time. So, any of the wood you see in here this is not wrapped wood this is not particle board some plywood it's the real thing. So, when you first walk into a Tiffin coach it's one of the very striking things that you notice probably next on the list would be the porcelain tile floor gorgeous floor all the way back we used a really light floor in here gives good contrast with the cabinetry and just makes the coach feel that much bigger the more lighter tones we can use coming forward here or technically we're heading backwards got to pull out here wonderful solid surface countertops throughout and a lot of cat look at your countertop space in this kitchen.
So, nice setup there three drawers of course they're full extension ball bearing goes out all that stuff you hear again and again my job to say it okay true induction cooktop, if you don't have one of these. I'll bet you like it when you try it these are the ones that do take the special pans they need to be a steel pan or magnetic pan as opposed to an aluminum pan, but. I have one of these at home and.
I really enjoy it they heat very very fast not by really getting this this cook surface really hot it uses magnetic energy to do it and it's some sort of magic. I don't fully understand it. I'm not going to lie, but it works.
I will tell you that and heats water just really really fast and then the burner is cool almost instantly to the touch. So, that's kind of nice compared to other electric cook tops our backsplash is gorgeous in this coach and there's one thing that. I think Tiffin does better than anybody else and that is putting outlets in smart places most coaches put the outlets up under you know on the bottom side of our cabinetry that's not really a great place for it when you have the toaster sitting there the cord won't quite reach up or you can always see the cord dangling in this case you can have your blender your toaster your margarita maker all right in front of the plugs easy access easy to get to the plugs you don't have to stand on your head looking for a plug that's a little thing, but.
I will tell you it's one of those little annoyances that make you happy when you don't have to deal with them. So, take a look at our sink here that is huge obviously we have a pulldown sprayer and check that out. So, the biggest things.
I've ever seen an RV that is residential multiplex lighting switch is over here to turn on your fans your lights they tucked three more little drawers in right over here and let that one's all get the dividers in it. I like that stuff big residential refrigerator no more dealing with the gas and electric that's kind of a thing of the past or it's quickly becoming a thing of the past in high-end motor homes these are adjustable shelves just a wonderful wonderful pantry alright sure Tony's getting a good shot of the TV there. I don't think we really hit on that midship TV location we also have a front TV in this as well in fact maybe that's a new thing we can kind of do on the video.
I'll have Tony kind of just do a 360 of the coach from standing in the middle of it. I'll try to get out of the way a little bit now he's facing forward okay. So, that's standing right in the middle the living room area kind of gives you an idea of the entire coach let's check out the bathroom this style bathroom Tiffin has been using it for a few years now it's really caught on it's just a huge huge bathroom a lot of manufacturers like the bath and a half style because it gives you such a nice bathroom this is another way of doing it you don't have to have a 43-foot coach to do it this gives gives you kind of the same amount of bathroom space only in a 40-footer instead of a 43.
So, big shower big residential shower with the seat built-in nice little cubby hole for the shampoos and such all kinds of different showerheads in there you'll like that that's plenty big enough for anybody toilets got plenty of room around it not one of the more pleasant things we talked about, but truth is we need some space we've all seen those RVs which you didn't have any any room jack-and-jill sinks his-and-her sinks however we want to do it hers and hers isn't his we have lots of countertop space in here. I know my wife uses a ton of space for lotions and potions and all that. So, lots of space for that.
I you know pretty much have a razor and a toothbrush and the rest is first three drawers right down the middle and cabinetry on both sides the good storage there and then check out the medicine cabinet oops let's go make room for the camera. I'll put the biggest medicine cabinet. I think.
I've ever seen stuff to cellar there's a nice towel bar here more storage up top. So, again Tiffin's really really tough to beat when it comes to the amount of storage they give you all right let's head to the bedroom the bathroom was obviously a walk through. So, this bedroom has two entrances you can come in kind of over in front of the refrigerator there's a hallway into the bedroom or come through the bathroom like.
I just did now we're in here we have king-size bed another beautiful LG television cabinetry everywhere now we have storage up here and big drawers okay under here we actually have the entertainment system for the coach your home theater system your DirecTV box already built in check this out we have a hamper built in more drawers all right controls the next to the bed to control different lighting and all that cabinets next to the bed USB charges next to the bed. I don't have this good of a set up at home. So, that's a that's pretty sharp and then.
I'm going to walk in closet and a 40 foot motorhome that's what we've done here obviously hanging space all the way across from this goes all the way back into there you'll have to take my word for it we'll never get the camera back that far safe built in this is nice because, if you do have clothes here nobody would even know the safe is there it's completely obscured more storage and this comes these baskets come with it these are the little cubbies that people love okay about four drawers just like this one and then we're not done yet tack it down stackable splendide washer and dryer and then want to have more storage nope not storage this time fooled me these are our circuit breakers house fuses okay. I think that's pretty good walk around on those coats let me step down here so. I'm gonna trip any questions don't hesitate my name is Chris Anderson.
I'm with mount comfort RV we do appreciate you watching and hope to see you soon thanks Oh.
