Does this measurement include the hitch?

I have measured the body of my unit and found it to be approximately 39'6" not including the bumper or the bike rack. I think that I included the King Pin. Mine has an Aire Glide which I think extends it a bit.

With the bike rack extended, it is longer

Hope that helps.

My wife has changed her mind. We have some wood cherry TV tables. We are going to use one in the space to the left of the door to the bunkhouse for the coffee maker. When the grandkids are with us, we will probably have to put it in a different spot. (They are 5, 6, 7, & 10.)

We have decided that the space between the sink and the TV is too small to add the table as she originally wanted. I'm 6'4" and my wife is 6'.

I had thought of doing that as well. There is a plug on that wall by the bunkhouse, correct?

Thanks! My insurance company was asking and since we don't get ours until Sept 8th, I didn't know!

Yes. There are also plugs on either end of the center island. The bunkhouse has a number of outlets as well.

We are also using the space above the kitchen slide for storage (chips, cereal boxes) as well as the space above the cabinets over the sofa in the living area. Again, light things. My wife needs a step stool to reach these things but I don't.

The only problem with the chairs is that the golden dogter and the jack russell dogson have claimed them. We finally gave up and put doggie blanket over them. The do rule the house and rv.

Be careful the 1st time you plug something into a 120VAC outlet. On my Columbus the new outlets are very tight (as new ones always are). However, the interior walls are thin so the outlet housing flexes.

You know how it is when your rig is new. Baby it too much I suppose. Better to be on the safe side, especially when you are far away from home/dealer.
