Structural support

I have a 302fk and in the living room there is a stereo mounted in a cabinet on the floor. Any issues removing that cabinet or any others with regard to structural support?

My guess would be that it wouldn't affect anything from a structural support unless the cabinet runs from floor to ceiling.

I have the same model, year and all and I see no reason why you couldn't remove that entertainment cabinet. Also, where did you manage to place three tv's, I can only think of spots for two?

We keep a third tv to set outside. We are planning a little interior makeover. We want to remove the back half of the dinette and that cabinet, put in new floor covering.

Two years ago I replaced the terrible factory radio and I seem to recall that the wires for the radio 12v and speaker wires come out of the wall. I also just remembered that the LP detector is mounted in the cabinet that you are thinking about removing. On a side note, I would love to see pics of your camper, I don't run into too many people who have the same model as me.

I think we are the only two with them. My camper looks just like it did off the assembly line right now. Have not tried to post pictures on here yet.

We actually bought this for me to stay I durning the week while I was working out of town, two months after purchase I was promoted back to my hometown...in the last 2 years I bet I have towed this thing 5000 miles.

Good note on the wires for,the radio...I can hide those easy.

How does the Honda generator do for you. Was thinking of getting one just to run air conditioner....it's not in fl in the summer

The Honda does really well running everything in the camper, the only thing that I ensure is that the water heater in on propane not 110v when I am running the a/c unit. I did add a hard start capacitor to the a/c unit to make things run a bit smoother since it really bogged down the genny when running in eco mode, not it starts up effortlessly. I generally use it camping at race tracks where there is no electricity and I run it nearly 24 hours a day when there, hasn't skipped a beat since I purchased it. It sips fuel and it is super quiet, if I place it behind the camper I can't hear it over the fan running on the a/c.
