I've bought some of the swim noodles, cut them lengthwise and put them on the edge of the slide, they stand out nice and if you still hit one, it's not so bad

All the mods installed except the vent covers and Maxxair fan. I also ordered and installed a 90degree "clear" (kind of clear but not) elbow and put it on the black/grey tanks dump outlet. Probably will leave it there with a cap on the bottom so it doesn't leak...
Two problems thus far: two of storage area doors have water leaks and the caps on the tops of the rear slide are not secured but they are not likely to fall unless knocked off. Not a biggie

We ordered our 24R with the swing arm factory installed but without the TV. The factory also ran the component audio/video from the back of the dash unit to the swing arm. I installed a 32" Samsung SMART TV which fit with the help of a TV wall mount that I picked up at Target. You can see the TV very well from the rear bed. I also had the dealer mount a 22" Visio SMART TV in the rear bedroom when I picked up the unit. Works very well. I'll post some pics if anyone's interested.

Thanks for the pics!
Do you have audio through the magnadyne speaker system?
Our tv is a Toshiba 24" ; no audio out...... Frustrating, seem that the audio jacks are there.... Added a swing-out extension

Ours is a Jensen system. I think FR switched to Jensen on the 2015. Not sure if our TV has any Audio outs. The factory only ran one set of component outs.

As it turns out, only a few TV's have the RCA type audio-out jacks! ( this is how my 2012r is wired)

If shopping for a new TV, be sure to check.
Note: there are HDMI to RCA converter cables or adaptor boxes.
