1) The load range of the tires on trailers should be one grade higher than trailer manufacturers usually put on lighter trailers (ie, "D" instead of "C", "E" instead of "D". I believe that an extra weight margin makes tires less likely to fail.

2) My trailer did not come with a battery cut-off switch, which I believe should be on all trailers that have a battery and a converter.

Excellent suggestion! I wish there were a little more room between the top of the battery box and the nose of the trailer. It's a real pain to get the battery covers on, and a true nail-biter to undo the battery; I have to be very careful so the socket doesn't touch the diamond-plate while loosening the + terminal. Don't ask me how I know. . .

Changes on our Pinnacle:
Hand rail on inside steps.
Rain sensor on LR fan or cover on roof. Current one only has thermostat control and manual control is 9' in air.
Need 12volt source by the sat cable hook up on outside.

Something minor for the whitehawk 28dsbh is it would be nice to have a second vent in the bedroom. That way you could draw a nice quiet breeze through the trailer at night. just put a black vent cover over it and boom... no bright sun light.

Here is probably my biggest pet peeve of our trailer, and i am sure all others, it needs to have better placement of inside electrical outlets. There should be one above the counter in he kitchen area like you would have in your house. we have one in our lower cupboard that requires an extension cord to plug anything into so it isn't on the edge of the counter. Another is under the dinette and the third is in the bedroom 4' up the wall for a TV outlet. Not one is in a convenient place to use it. It may be in a convenient place to install it though.

Sorry guys, but our 320RLDS has one a foot or so off the floor between the swivel chairs, one same height at dining table, one by light over counter near sink, one under the TV, one at the bathroom sink near GFI, one on each side of the bed, one on the vanity under that TV which I use for my Dish receiver and ac powered hard drive and a final one in the ceiling over the bedroom TV. Couldn't have asked for more.
