I am thankful to all who gave us the "heads up" on operating the slides so as not to tear off any doors etc. Have a few questions:
1) how is the stability after set up and camping?
2) Is master ac unit bothersome/loud being directly over master bed at night?
3) Is it wired for TV in kids bed room? outside compartment under awning?
4)Did you opt for the 7 year ext. warranty (not by forest river)? If so which one? cost?
5) The built in stereo says "DVD" on front. Does this mean it is connected to the TV above to watch DVD's? sounds like a dumb question but my buddy has same 2012 and his does not play DVD's on the TV.
You will love your 376 BHOK. I'll try to answer your questions.
1) Stability for us seemed really good. We did add some supports under the steps though and that helped a lot with movement from people coming in and out of the camper.
2) The master bedroom AC does make noise, but I don't think it interferes with sleeping. It's really good to have the AC there, so it's worth the fan noise.
3) The spot for the TV in the bunk room and in the outside compartment under the awning both have outlets to connect the TVs to the antenna, plus a place to plug in for power. I wish the spot in the bunk room was a little larger though for a bigger TV. I think ours is 28 or 29 inches. It was an odd size, but I bought the biggest I could that would fit the spot. We attached a mounting bracket for the TV to hang on. You can fit a 46 inch TV in the outside compartment. Bought that size and keep it in the master bedroom, but can move it outside if we want. We really end up all piling in the king bed in the master and watching movies. With the big TV in there it makes for great movie nights.
4) We didn't buy the extended 7 year warranty, but did buy the extra year from Forest River for $250.
5) The DVD player under the TV in the living area does play DVDs on the TV. Works like a charm, but you sometimes have to play around with buttons a bit to get it going.
Hope that helps. Feel free to ask questions any time. You will probably want to do something different for your tables because they are very wobbly. Just a heads up on that.
