New 38GK Wish List

1. 1 or 2 keys for all the locks and compartments instead of 4.
2. An external water shut off valve to the ice maker.
3. 2" additional height in the rear cap storage compartment. Standard size tool
box will not fit.
4. Modify dump connection so you don't need to be on your hands and knees to
hookup and unhook. Where everyone else has leaked black water.
5. A swing up coffee table matching the woodwork. There is no place to store or
set up a printer.

For us we use the slide put shelf next to the stairs for the coffee maker. Decided the keurig 550 was a good way to go. Our printer is below that plugged in the same outlet running Bluetooth

We opted to not have the fireplace & they added doors. We then had a good friend build this slide out for our printer. Not an option for everyone, but works great for us.

We also added a top drawer to the pantry & added drawers to the very deep side cabinet next to cook top, it was almost useless before as it was too deep & too dark.

I agree with Ron on the dump problem. I've complained since I purchased my 31SL 2 years ago that a Baby Boomer designed RV should not require us to get on our knees to hook and unhook the sewer line. Apparently the designers haven't RVed in their own product. I would also like to see the batteries and hydraulic shutoff slide out valves placed somewhere where again, I don't have to get on my knees to service or check. Would also like to see independent slide switches instead of the same switch for 2 slides. It is too difficult to isolate one slide if needed and nearly impossible to get to the valves if the fifth wheel is hitched to truck.

Here's my solution to dumping.
Tube on the left is 8' feet long & goes side to side of coach, tube on the right is the original 4' that was up under the coach, relocated for better access, & I added a 14" extension to the piping to get it reachable, no more crawling under the coach.0624151521.jpg

Can you do some pictures of the install of the tubes and what you used for brackets ?
This will be my next project as the factory one is useless for a Rhino hose .......

Where did you pick up the bigger tube ?

Vaughn, I tried a couple pics but they turned out so dark you couldn't tell anything. I found the 8' tube at a small rv dealer & haven't seen one since, it's a Valterra product just like the factory installed. I mounted the long one up against the frame drop down where the short was originally then southern engineered me a bracket from the long tube to support inside/underneath end of the short tube & bolted the ends to the "j" trim of the coach. Hope that's clear as mud to you!!

Just curious as to why your sewer drain is that low. Was there no room to raise it to the same level as your hose tubes. I know you would be higher than the level of the original connecting point if it was raised.
Thanks

It's that low because it's the same angle as original dump, the extension just twist on like the hose. Had it like that for over a year & haven't dragged it off yet.

I also added a 8ft storage tube for the sewer hose. I went to lowes and bought a 6" pvc tube and two end caps. I glued one end cap on using pvc glue/ primer. for the other cap, I bought a handle and drilled two holes in the end cap that matched the handle. I then used plumbers style strap drilled and screwed to frame to hold everything up. Looks pretty good and is very easy to use---simply pull on the end cap handle and the hose is right there. Took me about 1 hour to install
