I also wish the soap/shampoo holders actually held something. Maybe have something with a bar to hold it in place?

Thank you for your request It's nice to be heard
Clancy, the OP, a Columbus rep, was asking for ideas for Columbus 5th wheels, not the Roo line, if you didn't know.

On the 365RL, the black/grey water discharge pipe is too low to the ground. If it could be raised to same height as the kitchen sink water discharge pipe would be big improvement. Also sliding door in bedroom needs cushion between door and wall as there is scratching occurring to the bottom section of the door due to opening and closing door. Have better quality control at factory before units depart would be a big plus.

How about a standard wet bolt kit for the suspension?

Or, at least the lifetime bushings in the springs....most people never check these, and they do wear out after a year or two. The factory vinyl inserts are crap, either worn through or crack and fall out. Use the bronze inserts and wet bolts so we can grease them.


Best upgrade I ever did on the Wildcat....

We have a 2013 340rk and are pretty happy so far. Few things I'd like changed though.

Sky light in the shower should be moved so it is directly over the shower head area where a person stands. I'm 6'3" so the few inches would be nice.

Several of the cupboard doors hit things when opened. I installed clear stoppers to protect the finish.

The temp sensor for the electric fireplace is inside the cabinet and there is a heat duct in said cabinet. When the furnace runs the fireplace shuts off. I rerouted the temp sensor out into the room.

The light switches could be located in a more user friendly spot than in a low cabinet and labeled.

Heat vents with adjusters on them to balance out the air flow. Gets blazing hot in the bathroom, bedroom, basment and just slightly warm air finds its way out of the kitchen vent

Doors to the propane storage area large enough to accept 30 # cylinders.

Super nice big kitchen but a larger range/oven would be nice.

Electrical outlets on both sides of the bed and the light switch for the bedroom on the inside of the bedroom instead of in the hall.

After spending a week in our 320RS, I found one thing I would change. The location of the overhead LED light in the bathroom. When standing in front of the mirror to shave, the light is shining behind me which makes it difficult to see my face to shave, etc. Relocate the light so it is closer to the medicine cabinet.
I also think a Blu Ray player should be used instead of the DVD player.

Question for the Palomino company representative...
There are many great ideas /recommendations I see people posting. How often are these reviewed and how long does it take before any of them are implemented?

Living area floor, remote, & bike rack information

We picked up our 320RS last week. I have three suggestions so far:

1. The living area floor surface is very prone to denting from the movable island and other things. Use a harder pad under the flooring to prevent or reduce the dent issue.

2. Provide better instruction manuals for the accessories, e.g. the bike rack. We visited several dealers and not one could explain how to mount bicycles on the bike rack. There is no information in any of the user material that I can find. I've found a few ideas on this forum, but someone who designed the rack should have an idea as to how to use it.

3. Provide a remote for the slide out and awning operation.

4. Provide more customer instructional videos on your website.

All in all, this is a great RV.

Thanks!

The bike rack does not hold a standard 26 inch bike!!!

We don't have a Columbus so don't know if applies, but our fifth wheeler LR-Dining slide out has two overhead skylights....when looking at rvs thought we would like them but they let an extreme amount of heat in from the sun on a hot summer day. Now I would not want them if repurchasing new camper.
