I'm going to research that approach a bit, or look in the lower area. The small interior step light is pretty close to the wall. I might even make a piece of matching molding and bury a wire in it. Did a similar thing for my CB coax and it looks nice.

No more little green propane bottles! Anyone using this?

So, I am still shopping since my RV hasn't come in yet! I found this product and will order today! Imagine no more little green propane bottles since you can just tap right into the onboard propane tank for outside cooking! Amazon.com: Camco 59103 Propane Brass Tee with 3 Port and 12' Hose: Automotive
What do you think?

Polk soundbar

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.
IROB/PSW,
What model sound bar did you buy? The one I'm looking at has a wireless sub woofer that wouldn't require a power supply. It's the 5500. Is the one you ordered a slimmer design that fits better?

I have used these before on other rigs, they work great if you don't want to deal with an extra portable tank.

Haven't checked it out yet, but I will build some support up if need be to mount it to. It should not be that hard at first glance. Its my next project after the central vac install. On hold from this weekend as we got more snow on Sat. Ugh!

Polk 5500. You can get it delivered from Bonanza for about 250.00. Looking at it, pretty straight forward and should a very easy swap..everything you need is in the box.

you are going to be hard pressed to find a sub that is wireless that does not require a power supply. The 5500 has a power cord...

I have the Polk 5000 and had no issues at all with it fitting. system sounds great with music and tv and subwoofer can put out some pretty good low end sound.

Where did you get the chain from and what size did you get? Mine just came in the mail and I got 2 locking D rings and a bracket (which I assume I don't need to attach it to the coach). What size rings and how many did you have to swap out to get it to work?

I installed the rock guard myself. It wasn't difficult just a bit of trial and error initially to get the correct size rings and amount of chain to hang and have around 5-5.5 inches clearance off road when suspension is aired up.

Yep, that makes sense....not sure what I thought would power it! Batteries? Ha Ha! Yes, I'm a woman, usually extremely detailed but I blew that one! I know a lot more about RVs than sound systems! So really it sounds like the 5000 or 5500 will work fine as a replacement.
