Idea for a new Standard Feature?

I've read in several places about the sewer connections getting damaged because of ground clearance issues.

Something I didn't really notice until recently, is that the sewer connections on my 19RD are just ahead of the axles.

Unless you attempt to drive over a 10" or higher obstacle, those connections will never suffer damage during normal operation.

How practical is it that we as RV buyers insist that the sewer connections be placed near an axle so that normal up and down movements of the extreme ends of our RV's don't smash those poor, defenseless bits of PVC?

I have noticed that Maxxis 8008 tires are listed as a option on the 2016 fifth wheels. Thats one that I would want std but would choose if I had the option on mine.

I think a standard feature should be an energy management system (EMS)

Given the criticality of an EMS, combined with the difficulty of hardwiring one in after the fact, it would make sense that the manufacturer would install one at the time of build.

Light Switch In 33RLDS

How about a wall light switch in the bedroom of the 33RLDS. The bathroom has one., but the bedroom ceiling light is directly over the bed and has no wall light switch. Poor planning.

Roy, I'm with you Roy. Tell who decided that a master bedroom doesn't need a light switch when you enter
