Welcome to the forum!
I can't help you with your questions about the XLR. You might get a better response posting your questions in the XLR section under the Toyhauler header. Owners could probably answer your questions, but they may not check the Welcome Mat. We had some initial problems with our Rockwood, but Forest River stood behind their product and got everything fixed.
