Just push against the wall with your thumb. As you go along, you should be able to "feel" where the backer board is. Or, you could use a stud sensor. Another trick is to remove the cable connection plate from the wall, then use a mirror to look back there to see it.

Almost positive there isn't one.

I'm not close to being Wildcat Chris or a Wildcat factory rep so I there's no warranty expressed or implied by this answer............ but I found this pic doing a Bing search for 295RSX and looked through Images. It has been my experience that the backer board is indeed behind the TV in this pic - just left of the outlets for power and coax. It is also my experience that one can feel said backer board by pounding lightly on the wall about where this TV is mounted. At that point, the wall does not flex and vibrate as the rest of the wall does!!

Agree. Found the water pump, finally, no sign of a filter (is that a cost cutting measure?). I always use disposable filters on my city water connection so that will have to suffice. Sometimes I think it's better not to go looking around too much, as seeing how things are put together behind the wall can be disappointing.

OK< Chris Here's a easy one: I just found a nice 2006 Wildwood T26. Yes it's older but it's so fine!
The data plates in those days didn't show what the allowable cargo weight was/is. I have the VIN number and the gvwr of 7515. If I provide you with the VIN number can you tell me why the allowable cargo weight is?

Tow it empty to the CAT scale and weigh it. Subtract that weight from the GVWR to find your payload.

Once the VIN leaves the lot, payload moves all over the place based on options added by the dealer and the owner.

Chris works for Wildcat, NOT Wildwood.

Having said all that, once located, very accessible. just returned from a lengthy road trip which entailed driving thru very heavy thunderstorms. Only a minor leak under one of the slides. In the camp site all systems worked as advertised and the floor plan is very satisfactory for our purposes. Things are looking up !

Hey Chris. Did you ever hear back from production and engineering about the floor joists.
