I believe the power cord should run up under the RV into an access port and connect inside a compartment to vertical mounted plug. Much less strain on the cord, doesn't hang off the side where I'm likely to walk into it, and out of the rain. I don't know much about RVs but we like the 295RL and looking to make it our first RV

When we are ready to move up into a 5th wheel, we have a favorite floorplan. But once looking inside the door of any 5th wheel, my wife checks out how steep the stairs are going up into the bedroom area. Rockwoods are steep, and we'd like to see Columbus models have a more gradual, smaller steps with nice railing. My wife suffers from arthritis and can have good and bad days.

I would like to have a separate temperature control for those that have two air conditioners. Being in a warm climate, some times I like to just cool down the bed room area at night, but if I have the bed room door closed, the thermostat is on the other side of the door and does not see the cooler temperature and thus the AC keeps running. Also the frame-less windows on the Columbus look great, but the amount they open is not enough to let a good air flow in when it is cooler outside. The windows that lift up to open are very difficult to open. If you do not open evenly on both sides they tend to bind or get stuck.

Surge protection with remote monitoring would be perfect.

We love our 295, and do not regret the investment.

Clean up your dealer network!!!!

Do follow up stories to how people with problems were taken care of and now they are happy.

To constantly read how it takes months to get an new RV fixed is unacceptable. It seems like this is the norm in the RV industry. Old people are used to waiting to get things. The next generation wants things NOW. If they have to wait, you just lost a customer.

Remember, Columbus is a luxury brand. Buyers have high expectations. Figure it out or this brand will die as fast as it was born.
This is a great suggestion!!!!

My understanding is that my Columbus on order has a separate thermostat in the bedroom, for the second air.
