Sierra 365SAQ PDI

Well, the boys and I went to the dealer to complete the PDI on our 2014. A few issues were identified from an initial walk through... all but one thing was addressed. A few additional small items were identified and will also be addressed by the May 1 delivery.

The one thing I had them do was changing the kitchen light switch location. To me it didn't make sense to open the cabinet to turn on the kitchen lights. The double switch to the right of the TV controlled the light in the hall outside the master bath and the accent light above the TV. How FR wired that makes absolutely no sense. So I had them re-wire to have the accent light switch in the cabinet and the kitchen light to be on the wall.

Additionally, they are installing the awning rafter and center pole and the 2nd A/C in the front bedroom (Dometic low-profile 13.5K Penguin being installed). I HATE being hot when sleeping.... so the investment was worth it to me.

They also noticed one of the slide awnings was torn and have ordered a new one.

Other than that, it was a successful PDI.

May 1st cannot come fast enough.

This rig is a beast... the camper next to it was 30' TT!

X2 on the congrats! When they changed the bathroom design, they changed the location of the central vac and of the switch panel. The vac went where the panel was and the panel went into the cabinet. That is ok, with the exception of the light switches. I'm sure next years will be rectified. Our 2012 outside awning outlet doesn't have a switch, in 2013 they do. I have a wireless adapter for it now but will change the outlet out when I get home to a wireless outlet with a wall mounted switch.

The boys noticed there were not enough wall plugs in the BH to charge their electronics. The dealer suggested I pick up USB/12v wall plate and jump the power from the light in the bunk. The walls in the slides are too thin to flush mount so I will need to come up with a design that is clean and effective. Thinking using a standard electric box and wrapping it with some wall board for aesthetics.

Have you dealt with this another way?

Monty. I noticed you have the second ac. I assume it keeps the place cold!
