2014 Forest River Cherokee 254Q

In the process of buying the above and was wondering if there are any owners of this model out there with any advice or personal info that might be of interest.

I've never seen a power bunk system like this and first thought is what if the motor quits or no power, is there a way to crank this thing up manually?

One thing I did see and don't like is where the water heater by-pass valves are located as in under the master bed, not real easy to get to. Other than those thoughts does anyone else have any input on pros/cons of this trailer?

Any help is appreciated.

Picked up Saturday and after the walk through, there is no way to manually crank the bunks or the slide out, don't know if this is good or not. 1st week of November will be the test as we are going out for a week.

In the bed room of this camper there are two Wards - Closets if you may. 12.5 inch opening. What is the best way to organize these for packing clothes in there?

Some ideas are greatly appreciated.

When we had a cherokee, 28bh, I added wire shelving in the wardrobes. Just folded clothes and layed in there. Always needed a flashlight to really digg, but it worked ok for us
