Why FW did not include a ceiling vent is beyond me, but after owning the Coach for about 6mos. I'm not surprised, chock it up on another poor designed RV.
Do any of you other Bunkhouse owners have a ladder to get up into your bunk ? because I don't, did FW forget that we can't fly ?
My outdoor TV does not run off the Inverter???????????? Why ? did it not get hooked up ?
I have to run my generator all day while dry camping Really?????
Don't tell me it's too much of a load on the inverter, because that would be a LOAD.
My patients are running thin with this thing.
Please provide a wiring diagram for the Inverter Circuit.
I need a ceiling Diagram to see if there is a framed opening between the roof and ceiling in the rear bedroom.
Halla is correct and I think I have posted it before, it is against code for us to provide a screened, openable rear window in a motorhome. I hope at some point in my life, we'll get the benefit of the doubt that we have some inkling of what we're doing and everything doesn't just get chalked up to "poor design". We have enough poor design choices I can admit to, that I'd rather not pile on the "not our fault ones"
Having said that...any time I walk into a bedroom, the first thing I ask about is ventilation and we are looking for a way to provide that. The rear window is out (unless done by a retail customer and it is their liability). We talked about a roof vent, but with dual AC and the duct work, we run out of room quickly and an openable window is still the best scenario. On another model, we are testing out a wide, but short window above the headboard, if that works we could feed it into other models. We could do a window in that wardrobe wall, but then that takes away from storage (catch 22). Something has to give, but we are looking at it.
As for the inverter. I can say in 12 years, this is the first time I have gotten a complaint that an outside TV was not connected to the inverter. That could be because we just don't hear it, or as we see, the bulk of our buyers are plugged in. Or maybe people just figure it out on their own. Frankly its been standard practice to connect the inside TV, bedroom (CPAP) and fridge, which seems to have covered everyone to this point. Now that we've had this complaint, I'll have engineering look at connecting all TV's and let the customer balance loads.
Ladder, I think there was some confusion for a bit, but no reason we can't get one shipped out. I see that was on your original list a while back..did you let the dealer know? If need be just email parts directly with your VIN and we can get one out.
one minor note....we don't show our RV parked by a meadow...we show it in the middle of a rather bland paved lot. To be fair, we show no power cord in the picture though...so your point is still valid.
The batteries unfortunately, we cannot control how the dealer maintains them, but we keep them plugged in during the entire production process (other than being in the paint booth). We also don't, (as Philos3 mentioned) use basic batteries. Not sure when your unit was built, but we run pretty expensive AGM batteries that can be depleted further (than flooded) without damage (although no battery should be completely drained). I tasked engineering a while back into researching 6V. Many mfg's don't because 12v is so readily available and of course can operate even with a bad cell,or when one goes down. 6V not so much. But I am glad to see that your (4) 6v have performed well and we'll be looking at the pros and cons for future builds.
Might I ask what the Freightliner was in for? I know with the DEF systems of today, it seems to have added complexity to system that used to run pretty trouble free. Those Freightliners are commercial trucks designed for tons of miles and reliability. We rarely see those in for anything other than minor issues.
The last thing we want is a frustrated customer. While I appreciate the leeway, I also don't agree that "you should be happy, others have it worse". From our REV price point all the way up to our Dynaquest XL, it is our goal to build a reliable product that performs as expected. There are some challenges because people have different exceptions of how they are supposed to perform...but certainly they should "work". And we're here, ready and willing to walk you through getting it fine tuned to your specific usage.
I have attached a list of the circuits that are inverted. I have posted wiring schematics in a previous post (i'll see if I can link to that post). I have also posted some roof prints. If you need anything further, please let me know.
