Yes I agree exactly! Not very big but big enough for bug or maybe even mice.

SimchaSabre:

We have a 2020 34IK; took delivery March 21st.

The measurements you asked for:
Closet trim (short red line): 2"
Wall under water hook ups; back to front: 28-1/8"

From the 'water wall' to the outside closet frame is 3-7/8". I know you didn't ask for that measurement, but as a DIY home remodeler, thought you might want that. I didn't measure from the outside frame to the open closet door, but can if you need that, too.

Our first 'mod' was actually a finishing project. The top of the pantry and the cupboard next to it do not have finished tops. We cut a 3/16" birch panel into 2 pieces sized individually for both cabinet tops; sanded, stained, polycrylic'd and attached with wood glue and pin nails. Now we can actually use that space if necessary without exposed cabinet framing.

Happy modding!!

Hi, Daycruiser!
I'll get photos up later this week of the cabinet 'tops'. Trying to get outside garden things done between rainstorms here in the PNW.

Water heater on but no hot water
 
Ok so we took delivery today of our new 2020 34IK. After the move over we're looking forward to a nice hot shower. The water heater is on and it is hot to the touch at the overflow valve. But no hot water.
Any ideas?
Help

Have you checked the valves to make sure you are not in bypass?

The diagram only shows the valves in their open positions. Can't determine which one(s) to close.
Tried both open, both closed and alternately open and closed. Still no hot h2o

Is it possible that both hot and cold shower fawcets are open but the shower head shut off is closed? That causes your symptoms on our Sabre.

The outside shower valves need to be off.

I typically stand at the control area turning valves testing the outside shower. I check cold flow first. Then hot.

Keep looking. It is something simple.

These fivers are getting awfully complicated.

What operating instructions?

X2...if both H &C outside shower valves are open, that would also prevent HW flow to RV fawcets.

I can use my outside shower at the same time I’m using the water faucet inside.

spock123 04-16-2019 10:56 AM

I use the outside shower to flush out my black water tank and DW is using the sink inside. My outside shower is only used for flushing out the black water tank. It stays hooked up all the time.

Daycruiser--here are the photos of the finished cabinet tops in our 2020 34IK. I only added the photo of the top of the entry cabinet. The pantry cabinet looks the same (could only post 5 photos). Used Minwax, 'Dark Walnut' stain; matches pretty darned good! Even though no one would ever see it, I'd know it wasn't finished.

All items used were ‘left overs’ from various projects we’ve used for updating our 50+ year old farm house, so I can’t tell you what the cost would be. For those who are ‘weight conscience’, this project added 2lbs, 2.5 ounces.

Damn that looks nice. Great Job!

Thank you.

Ok we/they finally found it! Very simple indeed. Only have 3 valves and they are bi-directional. Took 5 people from LazyDays to figure it out and now I have a picture of the normal position. It will never get winterized as long as we own it so should never happen again.
Everythingelse was solved during our PDI and we're on the road.
One day I'll share out 3 day pick up experience with the dealer. Will be funny story by then. Right now we aren't laughing!

Hey as long as you can laugh now it will just make for a good story around the campfire :campfire:

Hey tcrossan, glad to hear your issue is fixed and would love to have a copy of your picture for reference purposes. Our 34IK is scheduled to come off the production line at Cedar Creek on May 13! You may be able to save us some frustrations!

SimchaSabre 04-20-2019 10:37 AM

I was just thinking about our 34Ik that we have on order. Ours will have electrically operated theater seating. So how is it powered by 115 VAC or 12 VDC. If they are AC, is there a battery pack for backup??
