Possible Bounder mods

Bounder mods: About four months ago we bought a new 2019 35K. On the whole we are pleased, but we are considering a few changes: One) We really hate the booth dinette. It looks like a freestanding table and chairs is an option. It might be possible to purchase the ( factory unit and install. Pricey, I would guess. Another thought would be to cut down the side bolsters by 2-3", making entry and exit easier (and eliminating the bed conversion, no loss to us). Two) My wife complains about the noise of the Vacuflush system every day. I wonder if it could be converted to use one or two macerator pumps instead, would likely entail changing the toilets as well. Three) Units with the drop down bed option have a TV in the center fo the ujpper dash cabinets. We the wiring is 't have the bed, but would like to have the TV. It wold be an easy mod if the wiring is already run forward from the electronics cabinet. Anybody know if this is so?
Before I tackle these, feedback would be appreciated.

We have a 2017 Bounder, and also had the loud toilet. The dealer was able to make some adjustment that made it quieter for us. Not sure what it was, but you might want to ask before you replace.


It still makes noise, but not nearly as bad as it was.

It is unlikely that there is wiring for the TV in the front if there is no tv there now. There would have to be an hdmi cord as well as a 120 volt outlet.

If there is an hdmi cord already run then the other end should come out at the tv control box, maybe behind the bedroom tv. Mine has the drop down bed and there is a 120 volt outlet behind the passenger side cabinet door.

There is a 120 outlet in one of the front upper cabinets. The mtrix switcher has wiring attached to the 4th TV location, which is labelled supplemental TV. ??? Where does that terminate -- I don't know.

I am not sure about yours, but check in the hole in the wall behind your control center, there may be an extra HDMI cable with no label on it, mine is behind the bedroom TV, not sure about yours.
