Furnace works fine for me. I used it in extreme cold weather in VT. Not that taxing for propane either.

The couple times we used the furnace it did really well. Forest River told me there is also a vent in the water bay somewhere. We had the furnace going on a 25 degree night and it felt pretty warm in that bay. Coach seems to be insulated half decent for a motorhome and with the double pane windows does pretty well.

I would consider adding the heat pump when one of my units fail.

Just ordered the Polk soundbar. Just curious, where did you put the sub (it needs power) and how did you secure it so that it does not move around while driving?

The rock guard I got from futuresalesrv online. Kind of pricey but it is heavy duty. Definitely minimizes debris and I have confidence it would prevent major damage from a large object like a truck tire blowout on the highway. Seems to reduce road spray on the back of coach and toad as well.

Some other things I have done are add storage shelving to def compartment, holds extra def jugs and wheel chocks. Added a 15 foot coil exterior shower hose, paper towel holder and soap dispenser to wet bay.

Added a nice polk audio sound bar and wireless sub to dinette area, what a difference. It has Bluetooth for music as well. Can really crank it up now! Lol!


Trying to think what else I've done..... It's endless but fun

The Polk soundbar is amazing and this in my opinion is a must do mod if you like music and movies.

I tried to squeeze it under the sofa but couldn't quite get in in the opening with seat lifted, it will fit under there though.

Second idea was under dinette but no good source for power nearby.

We settled on right next to sofa behind passenger seat tucked in corner. Out of way and doesn't slide aft because of sofa or forward with rubber feet on it. Power outlet right there as well.

Fyi... If you need more power in the cockpit for accessories forest river is putting dual USB ports in the dash of the 2015's. Our dealer gave me one for free when coach was in for service last month.

Couple other minor mods

Installed the profill rv battery watering system and makes maintenance simple, this is a must have item.

got sick of wrangling with 25-30 feet of cable wire every time we hooked up to cable. Campers friend cable reel is installed in power cord bay by coax jack and works great. Just pull however much wire I need through the hole with power cord. Simple but works!

Now if I can find some sort of low profile power cord reel that will fit as well!

Also rigged up a 50 ft air hose and chuck for airing up coach and toad tires from onboard air system, works great!

Added a weather station, remote sensor is mounted to backside of framing for propane tank. Protected location from debris but shaded open air area. Pretty accurate readings.

you are thinking like im thinking. My first hunch was to put it under the sofa cause there is a power outlet on the side of the armrest for the passenger. Bummer it did not fit. But where you put it was my second option. My third option was going to be in the basement right by the entry way. Was trying to save those outlets as Im going to put in a Dirt Devil Central vac and need that outlet to mount it. There is an outlet there, but Im not sure if you could hear it there. Good to know, that is where Im going to put it.

I gotta see your install on the dirt devil. This is something that is on my wish list, I'll be curious to see how it turns out! Hopefully you install it soon, lol!

Anyone know if we have power behind our exterior handle?

Over on the Berkshire forum people are installing a small led and apparently the wiring is behind the handle and not being used. Controlled from the aisle switch which we have as well.

This would be a nice feature to have and only costs $11 for the part.

I put in the profill watering system as well. Works great unless the temp is consistently below freezing. In that case, the line freezes and you have to pop the caps to water the batteries (as I did this year) but it is AWESOME for battery maintenance. Just carry your distilled water jug and the feeder hose and you are in business. I keep mine in the house unless im going on a long trip for more than a month, then I would take it. would like a dream.

Good tip for the cable wire, however, I have Direct TV with a King Dome so Im good to go for TV. I also use Fire TV stick which is very cool for programming. plugs right in to the side of the dinette tv and use the power outlet behind it. Good times.

I have ordered an air hose and a adjustable regulator with an air chuck as well. Where do you store the hose? in the basement or did you create a mount next to the generator?
