PDI went quite well, with no issues found. However, I was not able to drill down to the depth of detail I would have liked, and I'm going to test some of the systems here in my driveway at this point. If anything turns up it will require a trip back to the dealer before we head out for our first time in late April or early May. The one issue we had noticed during the initial sales process - a storage drawer not mounted right - had been corrected by the dealer already.

My F-150 handled it with ease, and it surprised me by being MUCH easier to back it into my driveway/parking pad than it was with my previous smaller TT. My wife and are are trying to get used to this behemoth out there: It's about 8' longer, a foot wider, and 2' higher than our old SLX 165BH.

rkresge, Misspoke on your TV. It's TxTwoSome who has the Hemi. Just noticed it. Wireman

We bought ours right from the dealer's lot. No TV but we want to add one for sure. No stickers or tags to indicate where the mount should be installed in the indented space for it but I would imagine the bracing is there? How big a TV could you go in that space?
All we can do right now is make plans until we see it again in spring.

I installed a 32" TV in mine with room to spare. Don't watch much TV while camping but I like to watch the news in the evenings.

I just used the stand that came with the TV and installed straps over the legs. It stays put with no problems.

Yep we have the Hemi it pulls just fine I defiantly notice the difference from our small 18QB StarCraft we had but it is much bigger.

But pulls nice and steady no problems.

Hareec, I took measurements on a unit on the dealers lot. The opening is 32" wide, 23 1/4" tall and the diagonal is 39". Looking at various TV's, a 32" will fit which is a factory option, but a 40" will not fit.


It would protrude beyond the front edge of the opening. Might interfere with the slide. Couldn't really find anything in between. Wireman

Thanks. That helps. Was actually looking at a 28" but didn't want to buy it because I wanted to get maximum out of the space and was unsure. Didn't realize the factory option was a 32"

Sorry to drag this post from 1 subject to another but my questions are about the 23RLSW. If I remember right in the bedroom there are 2, 110 volt outlets mounted in the base of the bed.


When I get my unit I was thinking of putting in a outlet at each base cabinet along side of the bed. For those of you who have the 23RLSW already, do you see any problem extending wiring off the existing outlets to this area.


Seems to me it would have been a better position for them originally. Or is there issues getting wire to there because of the storage area underneath? Wireman

Wireman, I took a pretty close look at that area and have a few thoughts, but unfortunately my nice new 23RLSW is snowed in following our 30" blizzard, so I can't investigate further. First, you're right, the outlets are on either side of the storage area under the bed. There is a piece of Luann mounted behind each one to protect the wiring. Second, it seems to if you put a an outlet on the base cabinet, won't that put it in the outside storage space? You would have to mount an 'work' box at the very least in order to protect the wiring.

I think it could be done, but it may not be a real good idea.

Roger

rkresge. I think your right. It could be done but not necessarily worth the effort. I did go look at a unit at a dealer and you would have to go through the storage area to do this.


The wire would have to be in conduit and the outlet box protected. Just brain storming idea's to pass the time with. If your like me, anything I get with wheels I have to tinker with.


More food for thought. Why the heck did they make the storage door's so small in relation to the actual size of the storage area? It looks like they could have been at least another 6" higher and a few inches wider. Sure does limit the size of containers and ease of access. Thanks. Wireman
