I do not quite follow the "plastic bar" that attaches the tent to the bunks.
Yes. My HW256 had the openings around the slide out. I sure noticed it during Columbus day weekend with the temps hit 30. I can feel the cold coming in under the dinette.
Does the sewer hose pipe extend to the full width of the camper? I just figured it went from one side to the next to allow access on both sides. I need to learn this whole black tank, hose, fitting stuff. But the sewer hoses look accordion type where they can be stored more compact and then stretched if needed. Is a 15' sewer hose 15' long stored? I would think it should be shorter. Like 10' maybe.
For my unit on the toilet side of the trailer there is a black water vent on the side wall and black water vent on the roof. I replaced my roof vent with a Camco cyclone (proper plumbing parts were hard to find).
On the opposite side of the trailer I have fresh water vent and gray water vents. The fresh water vent is small and built into the hardware where the hose goes into. The gray water vent is on the wall roughly behind the sink.
At the very end of the bunk end the tent is nicely sewn to a plastic bar. This bar is loosely attached to the metal/wood bed slide by a screw every 18 inches. When you are underneath the bed and look up the gap is obvious.
On the slide, the Velcro is nicely attached to the canvas. On the perimeter of the slide walls is a rigid Velcro strip for attachment. This rigid Velcro strip is not flush to the slide hard walls as there are screws underneath. This gap is pretty bad and I'm still thinking about how to fix this.
I have 15" and 10" lengths of Rhinoflex. I'm new to this product so I'm guesstimating the 15" length is about 3" when compressed. The storage tube under the trailer is not the whole width of the trailer, it's about 6-8 inches short on each side. The storage tube has doors where suit case style pad locks can be used. This may be a good place for fishing poles, rolled up rug, etc. A slightly different OEM replacement that is the proper width is about $57 with free delivery.
