New 344QB Owner w/ Major Dilemma
Just picked up my 2012 344QB from Lakeside in Anderson, SC. The gang at Lakeside is great and this floorplan is outstanding. There are a couple minor issues like a breaker panel that is inaccessible when the slides are in, and the gas assist pistons on the outdoor kitchen hatch are so strong they could launch a small circus performer clear over the rig.
But there is one issue that I'm sure you'll all agree is a MAJOR design flaw: there is no safe place inside to make coffee in the morning! There is only one accessible 120V outlet in the kitchen/living area: in the main entryway on the side of the sink cabinet. There is no counterspace there to support any small appliance.
The unit comes with a nifty little rolling kitchen island that we have been using for the coffee pot because it offers the only usable counterspace in the entire kitchen, but this is not ideal. You either have a cord stretched from the island to the plug or you move the island and block access to the sink. And I don't even want to picture what happens the first time someone bumps into the rolling island with a full pot of hot coffee on it.
I've been considering adding a little flip-up counter near the existing plug or providing safe power to the island through the floor. If anyone else has any ideas or just wants to praise or rant, let 'er rip!
