rick, we have the tankless water heater and camp almost exclusively dry camp. it is great as it saves on water. what we do is use a water jug to catch the water while it is running water thru the system until the hot gets up to the shower head or sink faucet, same as what we did with our old system. then we dump that water back in the tank or use it for dog water or flush the toilet etc. the thing to remember on the system is to not turn it up very far to start, I suggest that you experiment with it at home before you leave on a trip so you get used to where to turn the hot water faucet to on all of the faucets.
the shower is the hottest showers I have ever had in a camper, they are great. we use the low setting on the switch for showers only, auto for the rest. it takes practice till you get used to it.
hope this helps!

I have not seen an air bed in any 323QB trailers with 1/2 bath, they all have the jack knife sofa. I just wanted to make sure it will work cause i bought the air bed already.Also it comes with Cable TV w/Satillite hook up. What does this mean?? Can i just bring on of my dish recivers and plug it in or do i need to buy a dish/anntena for up top roof??
Chris you have any info on this?? Thanks

I'll have to check with engineering -- I haven't been in a half-bath 323QB for a while now...

I was just told (via text, I'm on the road) that it will indeed open! I was fairly certain it could, but your question got me thinking too...

Chris, I may have missed it, but I looked through the new brochure and didnít find anything about a battery cutoff switch. Does Wildcat or Sterling have a battery cutoff switch and if not, are there any future plans for one?

We do not feature a battery cut off switch at this time. It's always a possibility that this will be added to our build in the future, especially if there's strong demand...

Are you using one now? Will it influence your next RV buying decision? What kind of switch are you looking for (some are more elaborate than others)?

Actually the cutoff switch is one of the things that I definitely want in my next fifth wheel. Wildcat offers some great features and Iíve always been surprised that the convenience feature of a battery cutoff switch hasnít been included. Iím really surprised that the more upscale Sterling edition doesnít offer it.

After most camping trips I have to get under the front of the fifth wheel, unscrew the top of the battery box, and disconnect the negative battery cable. The only time I donít bother with this procedure is when I know I will be taking the Wildcat out again within the next week and a half. When we prepare for our next trip I have to reconnect the battery and reattach the top of the battery box. It might not sound like much, but it would be so much nicer to just flip a switch in the central docking station to shut down power to the trailer, especially after a 300 or 400 mile trip back home. BTW, you would be surprised how fast those 24/7 parasitic draws drain power from the battery.

Many of Forest Riverís RV line already offer this feature like the Sierra/Sandpiper, Sabre, Cedar Creek, to name a few.

The funny thing is, the cutoff switch would be a non-issue for RVíers who full time, yet most RVís built for full timers have this feature. Kinda ironic.
