2014 Rockwood 2306 w/Murphy Bed (PICS)

Here's a few pics of our new Rockwood. We had it out for the weekend at a local KOA to test it out. The unit itself passed with flying colors. No issues at all with the camper. The attachment end for the cable TV broke off as we were trying to attach the cable. Thinking that this wouldn't be our last frustrating issue with this TV, we went to Sams and bought a new Vizio.
The Mini towed pretty well behind our Nissan Armada (6500# tow rating). It actually towed better than our previous unit, Rpod 182G. Using the 4-point Equal-i-zer helps, i'm sure.

What do you think about the door. I don't like how it won't open all the way.

We noticed that our satellite and cable jacks on the back of the camper are crosswired. We heard this is common. We have not had any issues with our TV, but we did by a Samsung for the exterior and a seperate swing arm so the kids can watch TV inside and we can watch the game outside at the same time.

That hinge is strong. It keeps the door stationary when open. In fact, our kids have trouble closing it because it's so strong. In time it may loosen up.

I like it and dislike it. I like it for the adults... just pull the lever and it opens on its own... great for when you're carrying stuff (which is often) in our out. Stays open even in the breeze. However... the kids have issues with it. My 6yo daughter really struggles to close it... and both kids have now pinched their fingers in the hinge side because it's so hard to close when pulling it from the inside.
I honestly do not see the necessity of it... fully open, i don't believe it would block the awning or a compartment door?

Heading out to Hershey Park this weekend! Chocolate heaven.
