Some time back a member posted a picture of a cabinet door that when opened-did so directly into the ceiling fan.

Ummmm.....a ceiling fan whose blades strike the top front facings of both opposing living area slideouts as they are being retracted? One has to bring in a slideout part way, push the ceiling fan blades above it with a broomstick to get them started and then bring it the rest of the way in; repeat the procedure with the other slideout.

I've already replaced one set of fan blades when this procedure wasn't followed. To beat that, the ceiling fan is mounted in a recessed mount so close to the ceiling that it doesn't move any noticeable amount of air anyway.

My 5er came with two 30# propane tanks. One for the propane generator and the other for everything else. So, if one ran out, you're screwed. I installed an auto-switch-over regulator big enough to handle everything.

My Breeze came with two water pump switches. One on the control panel and the other not 4' away, next to the lavatory sink. Duh! How about one in the kitchen and/or in the bathroom?

However, I would rather have too many than too few. Also, there are none that are placed in awkward locations like the one you demonstrated in your pic. Someone at the factory should have thought before installing that outlet in such a poor location.

Good luck!

I have an Itasca 2004 Suncruiser and was wondering how you tell the difference in the 110 vs 12 volt outlets? I assume the 12 volt are used with battery power? New to this and apologies if this is a stupid question!

There are no stupid questions - only the ones that don't get asked and end up costing you a bundle.

120V outlets look like the ones in your home. They have a wall plate and usually have 2 receptacles (duplex). The 12V outlets may or may not also have a rectangular wall plate, but the outlet itself is round and looks like the socket for the cigarette lighter they used to put in cars. Cars now have 12V outlets for accessories, but no more cigarette lighters.

Saw an ad a few day ago for a new MH in FMCA mag that had a flatscreen mounted on the bathroom wall.

This MH had 2 sofas and you would have to set sideways on either to see the screen and the front seats swiveled but was at least 20 feet from the screen.

My neck won't swivel that far for long and my old eyes are not that sharp any longer.

Guess I would have to pass on that one.

Just read the same article ( 36 Journey ) and thought the same .

There's also the classic multi - manufacturer stupidity regarding the driver's seat back and slide out proximity? That problem seemed to take everyone quite a while to find - the one where 6' + drivers were smashing the seat backs into the slideouts trying to find room for their knees? That one has quite a few still paying their dues for that boondoggle!

Dumb to me is Class A units where the floor plan is an obstacle course to get to the bathroom when the slides are closed.

Speaking of magazines, can anybody tell me what is wrong with the MB ad on page 5 of the recent MotorHome magazines? If you guess right, you win a... Well, you just win.

I pulled together a document of these kinds of things in the camper I ordered and I sent it to my dealer who sent it on to his factory rep. I received a follow-up letter from Gulf Stream, thanking me for my thoughtful feedback and informing me that several of the things I mentioned had been tended to in a minor redesign of my floor plan. I have a 2007 and I was able to look at a 2009 when it was on a lot and sure enough, some of my suggested improvements were there! Perhaps I influenced the changes, perhaps they were already in the works when my information was passed on...either way, the product is now a better product. I encourage you all to communicate directly with the company. If they ignore you, ignore them the next time you go shopping for a new RV.
