I don't have a problem with the display. It's the joystick for it that is in a stupid position. It's at the bottom of the dash right in front of the steering column. I have to lean all the way forward against the steering wheel and reach down to operate it. I bought a new joystick to remote it on the side arm console, but it's another item that I just haven't gotten around to yet.

I needed to check a fuse on my Winnebago Adventurer. I lift the dash and find the fuses on full display. However, the sticker description for the circuits are affixed to the inside of the dash 90 degrees from your ability to actually read them with no room to get your head in there. It is a bit like trying to read a manual by looking at the edge of a page. Of course I could always use a mirror and read it backwards.

our stove is 6" lower then the capinets and with a pot heating on the stove the flame burns the counter top. Just stupid. Its a three burner and we can only use the middle burner.

Actually I think it was not a bad move. The lowest thing across the frame is the black pipe. If that gets cracked on a road obstruction you will be spewing sewage all over the place. Also worth noting that pulling the gate valve on the street side gets a couple of gallons of extra tank capacity in an emergency. ;-)

I realized that after thinking about it for awhile. The thing is, there is no indication anywhere of the second valve. It is completely hidden, no mention in the manual that I can find, and no indication on any stickers. You have to get your head almost on the ground to see it. The service manager at the RV dealer has fielded several calls from customers complaining that they cannot dump the black tank. Some indication of the location of the valve would help.

The other night I was looking at the electrical outlet in the bedroom on the right hand side of the bed that was located down near the floor. I sleep on the left side and was wondering why they didn't put one on that side. While I was standing there scratching my head I happened to look up and guess what was located on the ceiling about 6' up from the bed. There is no room on the right hand side for a night stand where you could logically have a table lamp and use the conveniently located outlet. There is room on the left for a small night stand that I use but I wouldn't want a table lamp there unless I wanted a cord to swing on from the ceiling...LOL
