Pick Up 35LS Thursday and considering some modifications
We pulled the trigger at a recent RV show here in Salem, Oregon. I had some reservations regarding Coachmen, based upon the RV forums, but less complaints in the last couple of years. We loved the floor plan. The only modification or add I insisted on as part of the sale was a rain sensor Fantastic Fan in the living area. I know the windows are double paned, but I dislike how they open and the inability to open very far, ergo the fantastic fan. No vent cover for the fan because I want it to open as far as possible. Also, no towel holders?!! I purchase what what I want, they install.
I have the 18 cubic foot residential fridge. The salesman told me that since we are not boondockers, the inverter and two 6V batteries should last 18 hours while running down the road between campsites or we can run the generator. If you have this rig, what has your experience been. I initially was going to have two additional 6V batteries installed in the compartment where the inverter sits (under the outside TV compartment), however decided to wait and see how the factory set up works.
I plan to buy a Dish tailgater next spring and will probably make it portable. Can anyone who owns this, or a similar rig advise as to whether I can operate the two inside and one outside tv off of one connection? It appears I can, but will be restricted to having the selected channel on all of the TVs.
Would also enjoy hearing about any modifications you have done to your Mirada that would make our RV experience more enjoyable. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
