Here are the questions:
  1. Is the 2nd bedroom AC on this model ducted?
  2. If I order now, will the 282RKX have the new NXG Frame? The rep said that it should.
  3. Do the models coming from the factory have the TV on a swing/swivel arm? The one at the show didn't.
  4. Does the utility area have the water heater bypass/winterization valves in it? The one in the show didn't.

Thanks again!
Matt
1. The 2nd AC location is dual-ducted. All Wildcats are setup this way!
2. Current 282RKX models have the NXG frame now (made by BAL)! New 282RKX orders will also now include our exclusive drop frame build (like the 295RSX)!
3. All Wildcat models being built today have a lockable swing arm on the main TV.
4. The docking station changes took place in late fall. ALL newly built Wildcat units have the new setup!

Does that mean that the 282rkx has a 60 gallon tank or a 50 gallon tank with a 10 gallon water heater?

All fresh water tanks on current Wildcat production is 50 gallon capacity. A 10 gallon water heater is standard too. Total fresh water capacity is 60 gallons (this is industry standard for fresh water capacity measurements: FRESH + WATER HEATER).

wildcat 293REX TV mount

I have a 2013 293REX. The TV mount in the living area has broken for a second time. The first time I did not look at any of it. I just took it back to the dealership to fix it. This was our first outing in it. The mount has broken for a second time. This time I took a closer look at what happened. On the inside of the entertainment center I found part of one of the gears that raises and lowers the TV. I noticed the gear is plastic. Can this gear be replaced with a metal one so I won't have to go through this again?

Please send me a private message with your complete contact information and Wildcat VIN#. I'll ask my service team to look into this for you!

Chris,
Closing a deal on a 2014 Wildcat 327ck this week. We have been looking at it since Goshen. Now I need to find a truck to pull it.
Does the washer/dryer combo set up have a dryer vent? I didn't see any pics of a vent.

Congrats! Welcome to the Wildcat family!

I believe there is vent access through the floor -- I know they put a sticker on the underside of the bedroom deck showing the intended location. Please let me know if you need more information and I'll get with my crew here...

Wildcat Chris,

My wife and I are in the process of moving from a 2013 Rockwood to a 2014 317RLS. My quest is concerning the slides. This model does not offer the ability to lock out one slide or another like some of the FR products do. Can you tell me if it would be possible and affordable to add an ICR valve similar to the Silver Back?

Thanks
