Thanks bartts. I couldn't find anything about how to manually lower the Tv if we aren't able to get the electric panel working. Any ideas on that? I really appreciate the manual. Now I'll always have it.

"Bart,

Folding chair $500.36/each. Plus S/H. When you are ready to place your order, please give me a call. 4-5 week manufacture time.

jwaustin, I noticed on the new Journey model 40J which has the same bedroom bath configuration that there is a cut out at the vanity for the feet. Might be something we could have done to our model.

Good thinking. I did take a peek at what is behind the vanity and it seemed there is a metal compartment that is back there....top of the engine compartment I assume. a hold might help with the kickspace but if the panel is there it won't allow a very deep hole.

I've even wondered about "extending the vanity top" somehow to make the kickspace be better.

Are you referring to the remote controls and the wires attached? I'm thinking so. Ours are outside of the bed and I always make sure to pull them on top of the bed and sort of entwine them so they don't slide off during travel. I wish the bed had cordless remotes because the cords/wires are a bit of a pain and I'm always concerned one of us is going to trip on them in the middle of the night. Thinking of putting up a Command hook on the wall to hang them on to keep them out of the way.

Bill, it might not be necessary to do anything other than replace the kick space at the bottom with the one on the new Journey. The part could be ordered I'm sure. I didn't look at the new Tours to see if it's on them yet but I bet it will be since the Journey and Tour owners probably feel the same as we do about the space. I have gotten used to it but still....

That's sort of what I did with ours. I threaded the cords though the opening on one side of the bed just above the velcro strip that holds the bed skirt on the wood frame. I then velcroed the bed controls side by side to the "night stand" right near the bed tilt up/down switch. I have not had any problems with the wires with this configuration. It also can be done of course with a control on (each) side night stand.

I never take the controls down. I just push the buttons etc and leave 'em velcroed in place.
Regards,
W.D.

Great idea! I was thinking about drilling a hole through the side wall of the bed frame, running the wires through there, one on each side. I was also wondering if the mAnufacturer of the pump sells an add on wireless controller...
as an aside, had anyone replaced the dimpled fireplace with the log model? Any ideas there?

I should have said below the velcro strip for the skirting. The skirting is mounted on the bed mattress platform edge on our coach. There's a gap between it and the top of the wood surround that rests on the floor. There's enough gap there to leave plenty slack for the wires. Sorry for my mis-speak, here's a picture.....

Regards,
W.D.

Yeah TB,
Maybe that's worth looking into. That would be easier than some other alternatives. Do you know if the existing panel we have just snaps out or has some screws?

If you get a chance to take a photo of it that would help...or if anyone else out there has a 40U or some similar WB unit they could take one.

Bill, haven't seen one in person yet. Only on the WB website on the video for the new floorplan Journey 40J. I asked about it at our service dept. and was told if it has a part number on it then it could be ordered and installed. If it fits. Don't see why it wouldn't.

Great idea! Simple and effective. Thanks for the common-sense tip.

We're coming to the end of our first year under warranty so considering getting Extended Warranty on the coach. Any ideas about who to go to? This is for the coach and not roadside assistance, although we want to extend that as well.
Just saw an email this morning from Winnebago Industries announcing their 3 year or 100,000 mile warranty for anyone purchasing a Diesel pusher from March 1 to Aug 31 of this year. Guess it's just for new purchases. Did anyone else see it?
