I see the fresh water tank at 36 gallons. Does that include the water heater. If it does, that is kind of small / average if you plan on taking showers more than a weekend. Is the "LP/Electric Water Heater w/DSI" included. If not, that is a nice option to have. Most companies are doing the DSI as standard now a days. I notice not much counter space.

Not sure what you mean by DSI

The 36 gal. does not include the hot water tank.

Direct spark ignition, this way you would have two buttons for the hot water heater. One for running it on electric and the other for gas. Nice and easy....just flick a switch. There are times when a campground will have poor power, in that case you can use the water heater on gas. It sure beats going out and having to light it manually.

I found out that the water heater does have the Direct spark ignition, it will also run on AC.

We are picking it up tomorrow.

Update!

We went and picked the Coachmen up yesterday, we traded in a brand new 2012 Jayco Swift that we got close to the end of last year, we had not use the swift at all. The Coachmen has a lot and I mean a lot better workmanship than the Jayco Swift that we had, before I make someone mad I'm not saying that jayco is bad, I'm just saying the one we traded back in had very poor workmanship.
