Now that's a good idea and would be perfect for the cupboard over my dinette.It's a disorganized mess.

I bought a shoebox size plastic bin at Dollar General that I use in the kitchen sink (fits perfectly in the small side) to catch all the water from washing dishes and hands. I use it to water the plants outside the TT, at the same time preventing my grey water tank from filling too quickly.

An incomplete list:
  1. Roofs that don't leak
  2. Windows that don't leak
  3. Exterior plastic parts that don't get brittle
  4. Frames that don't crack
  5. Tires that don't fall apart
  6. Spring hangers that don't break
  7. Water lines that don't thump when the pump is on
  8. Tank gauges that work

You sure expect a lot for your $3X,XXX.00 Next thing you'll expect is for them to put locks with unique keys on the doors.

I think Seam sealer/ Roof coatings should be standard.

When shopping for used RV's the past year, the amount of ones with water damage from the roof not being treated was rampant. There would be a LOT more quality used RV's out there had it been done from the factory.

My friend in the repair biz says he has seen plenty that are missing screws from the factory in order for the Mfg to save a buck. After he replaces a roof/wall/floor he has added boxes of screws to spots that never had one.

Eventually I imagine all the lights will be LED, but what are we waiting for? Their available! The aftermarket units are extremely expensive!! It would be like 5 G's to replace them all in my TT! If you're trying to be "green" then equipping the units with bulbs that use the least power is probably a good way to go.
