None of the above. We have a dealer here in Regina that I like dealing with. Unfortunately he doesn't handle Outdoors RV products so I take mine over to show him what quality looks like for winterizing etc. It's a family business 2 sons, a daughter and dad (they have others in there as well). To keep them in business I buy everything but trailers from them as I've had their main line before and it's junk (you know the product Coops). This on/off Sharkbite is very streamline and compact. Love-it!

Lac, where did u get the repair kit? I looked at "Ace is the place hardware store" and they had nothing that looked like that!! I need one.

Before we had to remove the seat cushions to access the storage space. Now with new door it is easier to access the storage space for items not that often needed like toilet paper and paper towels and such.

Nice mod! On our WR with the rear dinette, there are three "difficult to access" spaces (i.e under cushions) that I am still trying to figure out how to improve. Sure wish ORV Mfg. had provided exterior access doors to those spaces!

I moved that chest to the front bedroom, passenger side next to the bed. Then I turned the table lengthwise. I took the back pad and the top pad for the chest out and leave them at home. The dinette area feels more open now. I can still fit 3 on each side if needed (never needed). It's very easy to access the chest contents now and If there were some doors on the rear dinette seats, that area would be easy to get to also. But I'll just carry stuff back there I seldom need, extra dog food, DEF, and clean underwear.

I would starve if my TT didn't have a microwave. But now your TT is a little lighter.

We camp mostly at places without power. Our microwave would be used for popcorn. Jiffy pop for us.

Articulated TV wall mount bracket

The factory installed wall fixed mounted TV bracket was ok..it did the job. When we do watch the Telly which is rare..one of us likes to watch it relaxing on the couch.So we bought and installed this great articulated arm wall mounted TV mount. The TV swings out, up or down and closes right to the wall when traveling. Have a look.

Sani rinse

When we have full service ( water,power and sewer) I like to use the sani rinse after I dump both my holding tanks. For convenience I use a Y valve hose connector. One side goes to the city water inlet. The other side of the Y is connected to the sani rinse. After I dump the black tank I open the Y valve that feeds the sani rinse and close the city side. The main supply valve at the water faucet stays open. Nice and easy.

In our last trailer we had the same setup that you have here with the tv bracket. To stop the tv from moving while travelling I pinched a long piece of double sided velcro behind the bracket, stuck a piece of foam between the tv and the wall and then secured it all up there with the velcro. Sorry I can't show you a picture, but that rv is gone.
