Putting the control center inside the pantry cabinet with the main cabin light switch inside.

My 2009 Flagstaff 26RLSS Super Lite had a furnace exhaust that would be covered up by the rear entry door if the door rested on the side of the camper after opening. After melting 2 doors (1 during the pdi) FR attached a shock so the door can only open up 3/4 of the way. I noticed on the current 26rlss and rockwood 2604's they still have the exhaust by the rear entry door with a shock on the door.

My Wildcat has the roof water drip spouts. Problem is the one on the front drivers side drips on top of the bedroom slide. We hear a lot of complains of leaky bedroom slides on the Wildcats. This spout placement sure does not help!

not liking the height of the new 5er - new one is 13'5, old wildcat was 12'5
pushing more wind ie less mileage.top cabnits are hard to access without a ladder.
Also water filter hidden behind the fireplace- 4 screws to remove fp but just saying

My door opens the other way. Maybe you should get your's swapped to open from the other side.

Pop up tv leaves remote sensor below table level.

I guess this is just something to live with. Our new Rockwood Signature 5er has a great tv with good reception, but to use the remote control you need to get up and point it down into the cabinet to hit the sensor. Any mods for that??? I couldn't find a way to adjust it higher.

Try bouncing it off the ceiling.

LCI control boards and slide control boxes mounted behind stapled panels in places you would never think to look for them. I asked the dealer (should have ask my dog) no luck there. Finally found them using the remote control and listening for the relay click. Two days.

On my Rockwood all the trim and lighting and acessories are held on with steel screws. It would probably cost an extra $20 to use stainless.
