Most of the other items are usually standard items so wasnt sure if they would want those included in this list - if so - Hot Water Heater would be # 4
Really? You think someone would actually contaminate your water supply?

It's funny. That thought had never occurred to me before his post. Now I have a new worry. Yes, perhaps somewhere down on the list near zombie attacks- but still a worry.

I just read a discussion about people being concerned about power cables being stolen, so nothing is impossible.

I would add an outside comparment that provides external access to the water pump, filter and winterization bypass. This could also house the outside shower and tank cleaners and the fresh water fill and city water connections.
This is a standard on motorhomes that could easily and inexpensively be incorporated into the TT/5T lines.

The kid was in his 20's and his parents claimed that he was not responsible for his actions because he was in a motorcycle accident without a helmet, and had a head injury. This was when we lived in a mobile home park and the kids parents where the managers of it.
yes some people out there think it is "funny" to relieve themselves anywhere they want......SO SAD.

Well someone must be listening. We have battery disconnect. Slides open independently, 2 switches. Bus style basement doors (side opening inside of pull up)with slam latch. Ours is rear kitchen, yet we can get into the fridge when slide is closed, couldn't do that on the old RK. I'd say I'm happier with this one but we only got it in Dec and have not used it.

Thank you for the kind words! You don't know how pleasing it is to hear the results of the product line from a customers prospective. Positives sometimes are hard to come by as you an imagine. Normally a person posts on problems and that's ok but how refreshing thank you.
Yes, those were customer point that we have heard before and then directed back into the product. We do work hard to produce the best Wildcat products and it is a team I am very proud of. Thank you for your business.

Safe travels,

Tomcat

Wildcat is Forest River's #1 fifth wheel 11 years in a row! Thank you.
