How about either moving the tank level buttons/lights close to where the tank dump valves are or have a redundant set?

Our fix for this has been to put a bead of caulking on the seam. It fixes the drip.

The bathroom fan is a no starter for short people. The crank to open the cover and the on/off pushbutton switch are not reachable for shorter folks. The same thing can be said for pancake lights that include an on/off switch that are mounted on the ceiling.

The chassis heating/ventilation controls leave the outside air vent open unless you set the mode switch to "Max AC" which closes the outside vent to recirculate inside air. This is a big problem in the winter when there's a cold draft entering the RV from under the dashboard on the passenger side.

That is now resolved with my latest mod.

Then you have floor plans that have the dinette and couch next to each other. A big row of seating. Then the visions on these dinettes and jackknife sofas are very uncomfortable. The could design or make them more comfy.

X2 on the placement of the TV, all though I really don't know where else it could go. I guess it's just more reason not to sit inside the trailer and enjoy the outdoors unless the weather is bad.

On our 2902ss Rockwood they placed a heater vent right under this lousy table, making it a pain in the butt to move each time someone has to sit.

Another design non thought is the fresh water drain is way under trailer under axel that you have to crawl under camper to drain and get wet. Next mod on list to divert this closer to edge of camper.

Our design flaw is one grey drain sits farther back then the grey/black drain. Why not bring both closer to the edge of the trailer? DH has to crawl up underneath the trailer at the dump station.

Same with ours. Why not connect them together. At the RV show we saw a Rockwood trailer where they had connected them,

Thumbs down FLRB Living room dual sofas...

Does anyone own a Front Living room 5th wheel? We have the two sofas across from each other each in it's own slide out...they are both tri fold sofas and the camper is supposed to sleep 6. This is one of the reasons we chose this model...

Last weekend, I went to unfold the second sofa so that our guests each had comfortable sleeping quarters....

Wellllllll, I opened the one on the left....and then started to unfold the one to the right...ummm it hit the bottom of the left one with about a 4 inch overhang, thereby, making the sofa bed un-usuable! How in anyone's mind would this be an acceptable design? Yes, I trusted too much and did not open it up at the dealership, simply taking for granted that it did what it advertised, I fully take that blame. And yes, before anyone asks, both slide outs are completely extended.

This is the 4th or 5th item that is not correct on this Sabre 36FLRB
