Just got our 154BH a week ago. We already had the front window leaking problem others mentionned... Dealer re-sealled it. They litterally removed the window, add some grey stuff then put it back in place then add silicone. Seems to be better than the black foam that was originally there. Hopefully the problem is solved...

Other than that we're very pleased with the unit. The Odyssey is doing well pulling it with WDH, feel safe about it. We used to camp in a small pup-up, so the 154BH is pure luxury for us! Kids love the bunk beds! Already have the front levelling jacks in the front and the bathroom fan installed by the dealer (Thanks to this forum for information before bying!). I built a ladder for the upper bunk. Now things I plan to do:

-Add drawers Under the sink. Anyone have some tips for that? Not sure where I can fix the rails on the right side...
-Add the bar to help fold down the table (nice idea!)
-Order and install LED lights

Can't wait to go camping with our new trailer!

Congratulations... after 3 years we had to sell ours - but thoroughly enjoyed the ownership experience.

What is it with the microwave ovens in the 184 BH? First time I took the (almost) new TT camping, I discovered that the magnetron wasn't working in the microwave. Since I opted out on buying the warranty insurance, I replaced it with a Magic Chef. It is the same, exact configuration as the unit it came with, and I was able to use the same surround panels and exhaust diverter. I took the housing partially off the old one to make sure I didn't drill into vital parts when installing the surround panels. I wanted to just switch the housing on the units, but the front housing seam is machined bent/pressed around the top front of the microwave oven, so drilling holes became my only option. It works great and only cost me $58.00 to replace. The only difference between the two microwaves is the location of the top exhaust vent. The dedicated RV version microwave would have cost me $200.00. I wanted to put in a convection microwave, but they require more wattage, are larger and generate more exhaust heat, so I stuck with the 900 watt microwave.

Sheet size?

Hi all,

We just purchased a used 2014 184BH from PPL in Houston (we're super excited!), can anyone help us with what size sheets to get for the beds? The dinette bed seems to be about 56x80, but I can't seem to find sheets that size. Any advice on where to buy the sheets from?

For the bunks, I bought some of these from Amazon

We just use the fitted one on the bottom and our boys are not big enough yet for a top sheet. Our plan though is a thin top blanket or sleeping blanket eventually when it gets cold. I doubt in Houston it gets too chilly.

Perhaps a "Queen sofa sleeper" fitted might work, or perhaps a flat for the dinette?
