New 28DBUD Owner - Some Questions

Hey guys and Girls

My 28DBUD yesterday - as others have mentioned its not as well finished off as one would expect but the dealer told me that its normal "they all look like that". Started cleaning up the leftovers the technicians so kindly left for me, screws, wood filler, wood chips, dust etc.

First question, i want to mount a 32" LEd TV, which brackets do i use to accomplish this?

In the interim i`m going to look through some of the mods and upgrades many of you have already posted!

Pic attached of my new ride!

Nice rig. Congrats. Does your TV mount on the pivoting board between the living room and the bedroom or are you mounting somewhere else?

There is another post on this. Even has pictures. We have exact same TT and followed their advice on 32" TV with a wall mount from Camping World. Let me see if I can find the post.

Eyeguy - yes, i wanted to install it in the pivoting board. Which i did.

Emerald, thank you for that link, had i seen that before i definately would have used a different bracket, allowing the doors to be open while watching in the bedroom. Oh well, something i`m going to need to get used to. Thanks for getting back to me guys! I managed to squeeze a 32" into the cabinet and it still has about 1mm clearance on each side to rotate.

My other issue so far is that the DVD player only outputs to the surround speakers, if you want anything else like a media player, xbox etc it has to be plugged into the front aux of the media center, which is dumb. But happy thus far!!

What model is the player? If it's one of the Jensen's 4 screws and rewire that. You will have to get some RCA splitter cables and run them so you can play through the AUX input. We ran ours that way so we could plug in IPODS, Phones, and other items that we wanted to stream through our system. Feel free to ask if you have questions...

Mboatright - i`ll take a closer look next week while i pack and get ready for or vacay down to FL for 6 weeks - yes please!!!! Figure i`m going to need to get that sorted out so it works. I just managed to get to grip with having Internet in the TT while away - some members assisted in another post and i got "fixed up".

I`ll put up some photos of the upgrades thus far - still have so much to do!!!

One of the best things that my wife and I did was to upgrade our shower head. If yours is like ours was bone stock, the head was anything but desirable. We put one of those pressure boosting "oxygen" shower heads in there. Makes a HUGE difference.

Hey Guys - so mine is almost a month old - on my first trip out - will post some of the upgrades in a bit but first i need to make mention of the fact that this must be the worst RV i have ever gotten myself into - either the guys putting this one together were partying the night before or they`re just plain dumb - also, questionable quality control is what i might add is lacking at the Forest River Plant. So far, this has gone wrong - ill post pics up a little later.

First time i turn the water on in the sink its came out under the cabinet and all over the floor, being 6'3 it wasnt easy climbing in under the sink to do the repair work. Cabinet swole a little, they will need to replace it.

Drove screws into bath tub and cracked the tub against the wall.

Main bedroom, entire roof lining has come loose from the roof ?????? What? yes.

Two of the power outlets dont work.

One of the external doors wont take the key given to unlock it, the key wont even go in, no signs of damage or forced entry.

Cold water tap in shower howls like a banshee when turned on.

Bathroom door hinges held together by 3 screws. Holes were never made for the additional screws, door was hanging upon my first overnight stop.

Toilet water leaking from toilet, yes, toilet water.

1200miles away from the aholes that sold it to me and repairs can only be done by them.

Other than all the issues i enjoy my RV - dont however think they will be getting my business again anytime soon.
