My wife likes the matress lol, i can sleep on anything. We did add a foam topper, prolly add something thicker in time.

I have a 18v makita blower which i use to blow the slide off, just gotta figure out a better way to get up there, might get one of those ladders that fit in the bumper.

DVD plays over all speakers just not TV...

I'm not sure if this has been answered yet or not, but for ours we had to out the TV on "music mode" for the sound to play on the stereo speakers.

We used a standard queen... it fits snug into the space... and no need to extend the base. You just have to make sure you buy a mattress that can flex... not a solid frame. Most are flex these days, but some still have the wooden frame. Went in through the door pretty easy... It took a little bit of forcing to get it in between the closets... but went without too much effort... those extra few inches are golden.

Here's the one we picked up... we have a 3" memory foam on top of this...

Thanks for the info! I assume it's under settings somewhere... Connection wise I didn't see anything coming FROM the TV to the stereo.

Yes, in the menu on the TV you access with the remote control.

Distance between wheels?

I am looking to do a DIY wheel chock system that would behave similar to the X-Chock and I am not near our 2014 288BHS trailer.

Can anyone comment on if they have done this one themselves (and what size they built), or at least be able to tell me how far apart the trailer wheels are from one another at their narrowest point?

As far apart as the wheels are, it will have to be big!
