It's hard to tell from the picture, but it appears that you are in the fresh water tank and water pump compartment. Recommend removing the black plastic cover to gain better access. They probably changed things a little bit since in ours, in that exact location where the valve is, we have a three way valve. It allows the pump to draw from the water tank or a hose extension that is used to suck up antifreeze for winterization. The kinked hose could be that extension for winterization.

If you take the cover off and snap a picture we can better tell.

Edit: Just took another look at your picture and saw that it is the three way valve. The kinked hose is in fact your extension.

Just curious, on the 2015 did they correct the dinette cushion problem or do you still have to request the cushion from FR if you want to make the dinette into a bed?

I raised this issue to FR. Initially I was told to "live with it"! Then to my surprise a couple of weeks later, I got an email telling me they were sending a cushion. Haven't seen it yet.

I did not see one when we were poking around yesterday, but wasn't really looking either (although we did open practically every drawer) so I didn't see an extra cushion. I will add it to my walk thru questions and let you know.

Garren, I like the slide out tray in the large compartment. Wish I had one on the 2014 GT. I had to get one of those grabber tools that Walmart sells to retrieve something small that got loose. Big Thumbs Up to FR on that one.

My 2014 came with LED awning lights and wondering it was because we got the Pomona show model? I like the slide tray but looks like space is lost in the large storage bay.

Yours is probably the only one with stock LEDs. I bought a yellow set for ours for around 12 bucks.

Same here with the basement slide. Originally, I thought really cool but then you are stuck storing things that will fit in the slide only. However, if it works out for someone without a lot of stuff back there it's great. If not, you could just remove it.

My favorite in the 15s is the carpet delete. My only concern would be with the engine's access cover. It appears to be covered in vinyl or something. If so, it could easily get ripped.

Like the looks of the coach over all, but I'm wondering about a couple of things. First, the rear storage area with the slide looks like it has less space than what I have in my 328. Could just be a difference between the 351 and 328 models. Second, I'm wondering how lack of carpet up front will impact noise in the cockpit while you're driving. The dealer has mine listed as a 2014, but it was built in 2013......

Yes, I was actually surprised at the amount of space difference in the basement - we hadn't seen the 351 in person when we ordered it (just the 328) and there is a difference - the slide on the passenger side is in the bedroom, and makes the compartment door half-size only, so anything large would have to go in on the driver side. The dealer threw this slidely thing in as a bonus, so for free, I'll take it!
I think it probably does reduce what you can put in there, but I'm thinking flat things (like the folding ladder and a folding table) can fit along the sides (there is plenty of room since the slide is only as wide as the compartment door) Plus, it's incentive to take less with us.

The Ford chassis is a 2014, but the coach build is a 2015 model........

I'll let you know for sure once we pack it with all the stuff in our garage....

Yes, it's that fake pleathery stuff that the dash is covered in. It is padded, but was wondering on the longevity myself. I guess if it rips I could always recover with something more sturdy!!! Easy, since it's just the cover.

Not sure on the noise thing, as I said, there is still padding under it so I'm not sure if the carpet was any more sound dampening than the pleather.
