Rock guard for I5

We went to the Pomona show this year (mostly to see what, if anything changed between the 2018 and the 2019, and I'm happy to say not much beyond the sound bar in place of the sub woofer and ceiling speakers) and ran into Joey Eash. We asked him about a rock guard for the I5 and he said they are available. Was wondering if anyone with an I5 (we have the 30FW) has gotten one. If so, did you order from Dynamax? The dealer? Who did you talk to, the service rep or sales rep? Brian, are they available for the I5? We "need" one!!

Have you installed on your I5?

The ones I have seen are designed for the Freightliner chassis.

I have not ordered one for my Isata 5 yet but I did purchase one for my previous Thor motorhome. I was very satisfied with the look and high quality, plus it was easy to install.

FutureSales is the rock guard vendor that does the ones for Dynamax.

The sub woofer is in the cabinet just behind the driver's seat. In the 2019, that cabinet is gone and there is a sound bar. We use that shelf and counter space so I'm glad we have it. We have one of the first 30FWs off the line, but you got that show model so maybe they didn't put it in. Do you have the cabinet?

Yes, we have the cabinet and shelf. I found the removable panel shortly after realizing the surround sound was missing something. The wire for the subwoofer was in the compartment and everything. I was a little tired of going back to the dealer (4 1/2) hours away at that point so I just bought one and put it in.

Does yours have two A/C units? Mine just has one....

Yes, we have 2 AC. We didnt buy it that way, when we bought it at the Pomona show it was the same as yours, one AC, 6k generator but before they built it they changed the those 2 things to standard to include 2 AC and 8k gen. I wonder if they refunded people some $ who paid extra for those upgrades. We actually didnt think we needed 2 AC and didn't want the extra weight but didnt know they changed it until it was done. We wd rather have had another maxx air fan in that spot. But after being in 100 degree heat this summer we were glad we had it. Truth be told we hardly use that 2nd AC. The front one is usually enough.

That's good to know. I like the two maxx air fans. We did get the 8kw generator. It would be nice to visit with you outside of the public forum. If you would like to contact me via email I have a few other questions I'd like to pester you with... tom.muhl@gmail.com If not...no big deal.
