Things that still make me lol about the design of my ACE.

Whoever decided to place the rear head unit right next to the bed? I am still after all these years trying to understand the value of the placement.
Whenever in use, I need to lay across the bed to adjust it. And at night the display is so bright I need to place a pillow in front of it to sleep. In the hallway near the control panel would've been such a better placement. Kinda common sense, no?

The pet tie down point- on the roadside opposite of where everyone is sitting. Likewise on the same side as the sewage, water, and electrical hookups. ????

Whoever placed the t.p. holder where it is at obviously does not have teenage boys. Lets say the toilet paper needs to be stored higher to keep it dry. Same with the towel holder and mirror. I'm all for equal rights. But the bathroom was designed more for someone 4'10" than 6'3". Well except for the toilet. That's when it is nice to be 6'3". I'm the only one whose feet touches when seated. My wife prefers to use the campground facilities.

Another sidenote- with the massive dash why not design some cupholders, bins, cellphone holders as most modern SUV's currently have? It would be nice to be able to keep sunglasses, cellphones, spare change, drinks, etc up on the dash and not down low on the floor where ones needs to take their eyes off the road to access.

These are a few things we all notice while camping each time. I know there are other small points of irritation. But we always comment that those are the small magical nuances that makes our ACE an ACE.

We do receive a lot of enjoyment out of ours and so far she has been pretty darn good to us though.

I couldn't agree more with the remarks about the Ace I have a Ace 30.1 2015 and know what you mean . I do know you can turn the blue light from the radio off. I've done it after getting tried of putting a pillow to block the blue LED a few nights .

lucky I only have girls but have had the issue with myself...and fixed it before they noticed....

my wife's biggest complain is the bathroom fan not having a switch.. she is on the shorter side..I will be modifying this soon....
