Rock, we added the generator also. I had the same concerns you mentioned. I also added a carbon monoxide detector in the bedroom. Mounted it below the height of our heads, so hopefully it would sound before it was too late. There is a propane/carbon monoxide detector on FBTS between the 1/2 bath and pantry doors.

We haven't made it home yet from our trip last week. When we got back to the 5'er today a 2016 FBTS was in the site next to us @ Maumelle C.O.E. In Little Rock, Arkansas. Had California tags on the truck. Didn't have the opportunity to visit other than say "hello" and find out they had a FBTS. Hopefully , see them in the morning.

I guess I have to ask, why didn't you opt for a diesel genset?

There was no option listed but this one. It was either prewired for gen or generator option. Did the 2015 models have that option? I will be pissed if it was something I could of got and was not told. Dealer went over all options and they were the same as Jayco web site. He had an FBTS on lot that was prewired and it had the same tank in place.
Going to be taking my second trip over Christmas and stay at Tyndall AFB Raptor Park. I love that area and when up there turkey week looked at some lots.

Welcome and congrats on your new coach.
Our 1/2 bath doesn't drain completely, but it will drain. Probably drains 80-90 percent. I haven't looked into it much yet.

Just heard from Jayco. They said it meets Rv national standards the way the exhaust is. He told me he agrees that there should be a CO detector in bedroom and said he was shooting an email to design recommending it. I told him I added one and adding a smoke CO combo also. I also told him they should do same since there is only one smoke in main living room. With doors closed you gave no protection

Good deal, maybe they will start installing them.
We probably all saw the "meets RV national standards the way the exhaust is" statement coming.

I have an extra battery operated CO2 detector here at the house. May just have to install it in the bed room.
