Update one the pantry door! “No” they didn’t fix the issue. When I brought it up to the guy who did my walk through he was well aware of it and just shook his head. Myself, I’m not going to let it get to me.

Here’s what gets to me:
1) Why is it that in 2017 I can’t get a radio with Bluetooth capability?
2) Why can’t I shut any of my A/C supply vents off so that I can get more air pushed to certain areas if I want? Like say the bedroom which gets almost no air at all.

Oh, and they also did away with the central vac system. Over-all we are pleased. I believe I can fix the items above myself and get everything working like I want.

You can get a Bluetooth transmitter and make your radio Bluetooth capable. I recently bought one from Amazon for $28 from Tao Tronics and it works great to Bluetooth some speakers in my bedroom TV with a noisy AC.

Good ideas! Hopefully some RV manufacturers are reading these posts. After all, why put 2017 on a new trailer if its identical to a 2016, or even 2015?

I like the idea of being able to close vents, our bathroom is cold early in the AM.

Bluetooth is nice but I don't use the radio that much. Speakers in the bedroom would be nice thou. Also have you used the radio for your TV speakers? Had to turn the radio up to 30 to hear them over the AC on low fan.

A 120 outlet in the kitchen (not in the appliance garage) would be nice too.

Uncle Buck, did you check for 120v outlets on the bottom side of your overhead kitchen cabinets? Mine has 2 outlets, one on each side of the window.

Haven't experienced any overhead kitchen cabinet doors opening while traveling, but the wife puts a small bungie cord thru the cabinet handles "just in case". So what if the top pantry door doesn't open wide completely, it stores any and everything we use. If you need a door opening larger than what's provided, that is what the pass thru storage bay is for!

No outlets over the counter below the cabinets so I made a hole from the appliance garage and ran a surge strip through it.

As far as the pantry door, not sure what they could do except modify the cap molding on the slide. There is only so much you can fit in the width of a rectangle. It doesn't seem to be a issue with us but that outlet in the cabinet on the rear countertop is pretty useless.
