The dealer submitted a warranty claim on it. We will see if they cover it. If not, the price they are talking about, a shower curtain is sounding real good.

We purchased ours earlier this year at an RV show from a local dealer. I searched the country and found other dealers with much cheaper price and told my dealer to match or I was taking a road trip. They matched and even included a hitch! We walked out the door with it for under $38K. I also use a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 Crew cab 4x4 diesel 6.7L. Have had no issues yet and travel safe.

Questions I have are as follows:
1. Anyone have a picture of their double sewer lines joined into one single dump line? Seems most sewer hoses are not long enough to reach both when at full hook up sites. Anyone done this with a "Y"?

2. Remote stopped working after the first time. No longer will operate anything in the coach? Is a fuse blown or something? I am at a loss for this.

3. Anyone have a handy "fix" for the issue of the water running off the tub in the rear bathroom and onto the floor?

4. Anyone have issues with the outdoor fridge staying cold while camping? Mine is very mediocre at best.

5. Anyone installed a washer and dryer up front? Vent less or vented?

Thank you for your input! Happy Camping!

Near the dump hole, use a Y with single hose going into the hole. Use a long hose from the front to the Y and a short hose from the rear. Also, use clear joints so you can see the liquids. That has helped me a lot

2. Remote stopped working after the first time. No longer will operate anything in the coach? Is a fuse blown or something? I am at a loss for this.

Don't know....But my front landing gear switch broke, and I now use the remote to control it. The code is 0000

3. Anyone have a handy "fix" for the issue of the water running off the tub in the rear bathroom and onto the floor?

Don't know about this issue.?

4. Anyone have issues with the outdoor fridge staying cold while camping? Mine is very mediocre at best.
Leave the outside door slightly open (not latched) I had same problem until I did this. You need air circulating in that kitchen area or the fridge will not cool, plus it will wear out the fridge faster.

5. Anyone installed a washer and dryer up front? Vent less or vented?
Haven't done it yet. I was told you have to cut a hole in the bottom of the front cap or vent it down to the bottom of the 5er.

1. I do it the same way as moodman.

2. There is a fuse panel behind the large wood panel in the basement. I cut a hole in mine for easier access later if need be. I'll get a pic this weekend.

3. Shower curtain goes inside the tub.

4. Haven't noticed. But will look into it.

5. Nope.

The issue with the rear tub edge water running off on the floor I fixed with tub edge guards in the corners placed with the end draining into the tub. I will try to get a picture tomorrow.

Here is the pic of what I did to solve the water running on the floor. This tub is a terrible design but this worked. Unfortunately they only come in white and clear if you can find them. I painted mine but wish I could have come closer in the color.

Thank you for the picture. I will look into those. If only the spout was a little bit longer and got out away from the edge.

I appreciate the feedback. I will try keeping the outdoor kitchen door open some and maybe a fan.

Owners of a 356QBS, what have you come up with for sewer hose storage? Do you store 3 so all outlets can be connected at once or do you just store and use one? Any pictures would be appreciated too. Thanks in advance.
