I to have this configuration in my 2014 hemisphere 282 RK . What I did was put the two bigger cushions together at and angle and push down . Don't know if its the right way but it worked . First time it popped out. I received mine in April and am still in the learning process of where everything is. Still not sure where water pump and bi-pass valve are . Have done a few little mods on things I thought should have been done. Put 48 Led stick on light on rangehood, Built shelf above sink in Out door kitchen , screen door bar was a must with grand children. Would like to hear of any mods you have done thanks.

Typically, you need all 4 cushions flat to make a bed. Either the seat bottom pads can be slid together in the middle or the 2 seat back cushions can be put in the middle (top edge against top edge) with the seat bottom pads on the outside. We place the foot and head cushions first and then, like bsmurphy does, the cushions going in the middle have to be leaned against each other and pressed down flat.

If your bottom cushions won't go back into the seat back area, use them in the middle position.

Ours don't pop up after they are pushed flat but that could be because we put it down to a bed every time we travel and use it as a bed on every trip.

Itat is your TT a 282rk with the same curved back rest cushions?

Thats what is throwing it all off.

We are going out next weekend and I will do some pics of what is happening and try what both of you guys have talked about.

If you have pics of it laid out post them up. There isn't many 282s out there that have the dinette. It seems all the dealers were getting the free standing table w/4 chairs. We hade to order ours because of that.

BSMURPHY I think the water bypass valve is with the water heater in the wardrobe cabinet in the bedroom, opposite wall of the bathroom. You have to pull out the lower drawer to access it.

The water pump is under the kitchen sink to the right behind the divider wall. You can get to it from the cabinet.

I would like to see the mods you've done. Start a new thread in mods and post the pics of what you've added and how you did them.

Yes mine has the curved back cushions. It really doesn't look right but I don't know of any other way. It is a tight fit. Maybe the cushions have to soften from use. When I get to my camper in a couple of weeks I will take a picture. I may have some questions for you later. Thanks Bill

Hello again, you also might want to pull your drawers clear out on the dinette and check the stops on the bottom. They are held on with very short staples. I took mine off and glued and screwed them back on . One fell off is why I did this.

Greetings, we too havre a Hemi 282RK, got ours in April and love it, although a litle more room in the bedroom would have been nice.

Your water pump is under the kitchen sink, there's a panel to the right in the cabinet, you can look over that and behind that panel is the water pump. It's a good idea to look behind there with a flashlight to make sure the fittings are tight. Check for water drips.

The heater and bypass valve are in the bedroom, under the bureau. You have to remove both slide drawers to get to it, kind of a pain. The drawer slides have little black plastic locks that have to be depressed once the drawer is fully extended. To remove them, you have to lift the bed compartment up so you have enough room.

We opted to order without the outdoor kitchen, it afforded additional stowage. But it's only the 3 of us and we're semi permanent in a campground, so there was really no need for another kitchen.

Good Camping.

We have a 2010 Roo 23SS but it has the same type of dinette, not the U-shaped version. It looks like yours should convert to a bed the same way ours does.


The only difference is your seat cushions are somewhat rounded on the short side where ours are rectangular. The seat back cushions on ours are rounded on the top edge but that doesn't make any difference when they are squashed together when laid flat.
