There is also some good info here:



It's a 5 part series of video on the Roo and basically how I learned about the one I just bought (2010 21SS).

I think your pull out system on the 2015 is simpler than the older models so I'm not sure how this will apply.

I should have showed all the straps in the video as well.
I was really interested in showing how well the fans pulled the fabric in on the newer bunks as many were asking about it at the time.

I have a 2015 palomino solaire and it doesn't have any straps for the matress to attach to the bed floor. But there are long straps that go from the ceiling down to by where the hinges are. So either way I fold it holds everything from falling into the camper. But I'd like to see if the fan trick works in my unit

Jim101, On the front bunk get the mattress off the Velcro, slide it in so it is on the inside edge of the hinge cloth (closest to you) We let the hoop fall down on top of the mattress on the front. In the back, we fold the mattress and stand it up, hoop lays on the door. You can do what you want with the shepherd staffs we usually put them in the fold of the mattress. And then shut all the windows and doors open both vents and turn them on high.

I did not see him put any PVC on the camper. That is an older model has a drip gutter above the door. Newer models do not have that and the newer models also have permanently attached tenting. Someone came up with a modification to add PVC across the top for storage. With attention to detail concerning the door gaskets and the door area that meets them are kept clean you should n0t have water intrusion problems

It's in the video with the canvas showing, at the end of the video he slides a white piece of pvc piping on the top of the door and says this is a piece of Pvc pipe with a slit in it.

i have seen others on here do that, its to help prevent water from getting in through the top of the door as there is some space between the top of the door and the gutter above.

Here's the link with the pvc drawing if anyone is interested. Many are also using a piece of rubber hose or clear tubing from HD or Lowes with a slit in it. Works just as well and easier to store while camping.

I was concerned about leakage past the top bunk seal while driving in a rainstorm. So far, so good....

My selling dealer installed a gutter system above both bunk ends. He said FR used to put them on hybrids but discontinued them. Work like a charm. Recommend
