THE PACE ARROW DP just wasn't working out so I traded it in on this 2019 Winnebago....ford v-10 so lots of power
picked it up Monday... brought it home and went to work...first thing wrong..... they made the dinette 64'' long.... that's is supposed to be a sleeper for guests ,.. who has 5'4'' guests??? so I ripped it out, took out the wall behind, and moved the other side to where it's now 72'' as normal,..next, it has the swivel buckets in the front....but they raised the floor , so when you spin them around... your feet dangle...so I stripped every thing out of the front and I'm extending the floor back 9.5 inches....shit everywhere...and now it's raining...one of my plans is to put a double layer of rebound pad, and then carpet the raised floor...should be a lot quieter and keep warmer than the vinyl

Loving these new class A's with the overhead bunks. Does the driving quarters feel claustrophobic with it being fixed like that or does it retract like the Fleetwood Flair's?

As you can see, I got a fuc'n mess going, rain turned into a hurricane...but, rain just quit...winds blowing dry'n up everything...
on the rv, if you look at the pic , the one that shows the door, the new floor will go right about to the fire extinguisher … the dinette is moved already,.. but need to order one piece of trim to finish...

so when I bought this,... every thing worked but the gen was hard to start,.. they got the service guy over and he said what I thought... the carb is shot... so he said we'll take it in back and put one on, come back at four...came back and alls good.... but,... I get home and turn on the fridge with the inverter.... no power...wtf....so when I took the dinette apart, there the inverter.....under the dinette...another wtf...the battery's are right below the other side... and theres a sliding door for access.....

so what I found is the gfi tripped and won't reset....I tried all the things that magnum said... but no go... but I did move it to the other side… from what they say, all it runs is the fridge... but it's a 1000 watt pure sine...I would like to also run the tv's... so I might bump it up to a 2000 watt..

Steve, what was inside that little pony Wall behind the dinette besides the heater duct?

Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
nothing...what was weird was they ran both ducts next to each other... I took the one that was back there and faced it where it blows under the table... be nice on cold mornings drinking coffee...the cool thing is they put the dinette on the camp side,.. make it nice when you are in parks not having to look at the neighbors

Interesting. I REALLY like the layout of that model. Very useable and plwnty of sleeping. Whats the actual overall exterior length on it?

the out door kitchen looks like a bunch of waisted space and added weight...don't see it getting much use

for the outdoor fridge to run you have to be on shore power or plugged in..

You are the only person I know (and I dont even know you!) who spends over $100K on a brand new set up and pulls it apart to fix the stupid stuff!!

2FF I wish I had your money :), your motivation, your energy and your ability to see things outside of the box and your desire to finish something all the way through!! You are awesome!

He should be an RV design consultant with the upgrades he thinks of and implements

you can see in this pic where both heater ducts were side by side, and the pont wall I took out,.. also had to move the other side about 3'' to get to 72'' bed,... the cushions fit perfect now..

Don’t agree with that design. Camped next to someone with one of those setups. They pulled everything and use it for storage
on our pace arrow , there was a tv out side... but it was on the inverter...when we were camped at orangeland I watched it a few times drinking coffee and beer...I keep looking at the outdoor set up and think, damn that's a waist....so it'll probley go next...

That mini fridge isnt on an inverter? When i was looking at trailers a couple years ago the salesmen (I know, they know about as much as most Stanford students know about powersports) at many dealerships we went to all said they run off the inverters and are sized so the solar panels will run them during the day.

ever think about starting your own RV company with all you've learned about them over the years? or are people mainly concerned about price point and not functionality/quality/design

My 29 A C E is exactly the same, Did you move the bathroom wall ? How did you make the space bigger ?

I think i see what you did, did you just open the little wall that is between the dinette and bathroom, My little stupid wall is on the front side. I like your idea.
