The wall slide isn't really all that heavy...its all the stuff that the wall slide allows you to add. Full wall slide means only one slide mechanism...where a 2nd slide adds the weight of a 2nd slide mechanism and you end up with just about the same amount of framing/wall material.

It's heavy because its a 31' motorhome with a 12 cubic foot fridge (in most cases) and a good size kitchen, big vanity and nightstands. The 3170/71 is about the same weight in a double slide. We're just trying to cram in all the stuff people ask us for.

Thks in advance
So far we been getting the inside ready for items in it. One dumb thing was we have a 40 tv in front but we added a Dome on the roof but the outlet to plug it in is behind that TV, so you have to take 6screws out to move the Tv to plug in anything. The best thing when you have to do this is PLUG in a power strip then you have it in the cabnet to the right.
There is no LOW DRAIN hoses under the unit, at lest I did not find one yet.

Low point drains are behind the panel where the water filter/water pump are.

Just open the black ABS cover to expose that area (inside the storage compartment). Should see a red & blue right there.

Lots of good storage outside, great fridge. My wife was not with me, but I'm SURE she'd have liked it.
I am a bit concerned over such a long slider; and asked some questions. Apparently they upgraded the slider rollers from original design based on what they learned on the first unit they'd self tested.
They have 9 rollers for that slide out,it does very good

On our 3051S we wanted to take out our screen's out for we are getting the windows tinted, it there a easy way cause they are very tight in the track and will not even budge to get out of the track. Thank you, raydee66

We like ours, just had it out for a "shakedown" last weekend. Our dealer did a poor job on going over on items. Thanks for the frog forumn, that help a lot. My problem now is getting DVD to our 40" TV, it looks like I will put a Blu-Ray in. It is not fun to get that Tv out to hook up cables.
One stupid thing was they put a electric box behind the TV, Ihad to run a power strip from that box through the small hole for future items. We have the entertainment up front.
