In fact my first weekend out I pulled up to the dual sided dump station and I believe a guy was doing that. Letting it fill through the toilet. He was there two campers before me and was still there when I dumped and left.

So a connection with a check valve that runs straight to the top of the tank. Would greatly speed up filling for a rinse dump.

Not to me argumentative my friend just curious...you have a rinse hose hookup but it does not spray your black tank? That is odd!

It does spray the black tank. But the sprayer doesn't fill the tank very quickly. What I'm talking about is a straight on 1/2" hose that could fill the tank in a few minutes.

I'm in full agreement on this one. Our design "consultant" in years past is now fully in charge of our interior design. Margie (a full time interior designer) does a great job for us and we've been hearing many positive remarks from customers about her improvements in the last year! While there's always room for more improvement, I feel very good about the direct Wildcat is heading in for interior design...

I agree, the owners manuals -- while an improved collection of information (My last RV was just a pile of OEM stuff that was mostly worthless) -- should pertain to each model. So I opened up mine and found all sorts of information on systems I don't even have on the RV -- extremely confusing. I see progress, but its still pretty awful when its an "all in one" manual, which basically means worthless for everyone.

I really like the 4 steps on our new 2015 wildcat. My dog is old and it made it a lot easier for her. We also love the real backsplash in the kitchen. The solar port is a cool surprise, just need to figure out how to utilize it. Love the trash system on the 337fb and the smaller outdoor kitchen. Don't love the RVQ but it did cook nicely but the igniter was horrible. Love the LED lights everywhere. Love the on/off master power cutoff. This RV has so many things I could only have dreamt of on my old RV ... and honestly most other current day units don't have these things, so Wildcat, your doing good, keep it up!

How about a site where we can put in the VIN number and get all the data about the RV. Which would help for upgrades, parts and weight.

I LIKE THAT ,

like downloading the window sticker for a vehicle or a build sheet.
But then, a good manufacturer should reply fairly quickly to a customer inquiry.
I e-mailed a question to Dynamax C/S once with the sn of our 5th wheel included and received a satisfactory answer within 5 minutes incl. his direct phone number. I was floored.

Thanks for the kind words about the new Wildcat features! We're trying hard to listen to the feedback from consumers and push the bar a bit higher.

Here's some information on the new Furrion solar port:
FSPP95SA-BL - Solar power - RV Camp Power - Electrical

The folding panel can be ordered from Forest River's part department as well:

The access door under BR slide should be larger AND swing left or right; not raise up - current access is too limited.
Access door on entry side should be moved forward, not mounted at very back of the opening.

I have the samething and it works great, Rockwood has been doing that for awhile, being mine is 2 years older then yours......But remember we have Rockwoods/ Flagstaff, best trailer FR makes in my opinion.....

12v jacks near wheel wells to support 12v air compressor and 12v impact wrench for servicing and changing tires (both sides).

Winegard SensarPro upgrade to standard wall plate for easier hunting of TV stations.

Shock absorber upgrade along with TrailAir Equa-flex equalizers to smooth the ride.

Interesting idea about the 12V outlet near the wheel wells…

On the "smooth the ride" discussion, every Wildcat comes standard with a MOR/ryde CRE-3000 suspension system. More info here:
