Have there been problems with freezing?

Not that I'm aware of. I just know that me being here in Iowa during the winterI do not want to find out in the winter thatthe insulation is inadequate.

Did you bring this up while you were at the factory? What was their response?

I brought it up and there was no response but lets face it they probably think that if you a Redwod you are going to be in warmer climates.

I just picked up my RL today and I'm staying in it at Cherry Hill RV Park near DC - which was 20 mins from the dealer. Yeay! It was almost perfect when we picked it up and for sure, the dealer makes all the difference in cleaning, testing and correcting cosmetic issues.

Two small design problems you RL "waiters" will want to be aware of. First, the bathroom door handle bangs into the glass shower door when you open it all the way. If you have not leveled yet and are leaning curbside, the handle may break or scratch the shower door. Second, there is no bumper to stop the outside door from swinging into the side of your paint - especially if the wind is blowing. Be careful! Need some creative solution for both of these.

Overall, the quality, detail and finish exceeds even the pictures in the brochure. We love it andare completely impressed so far.

I added a magnetic door stop on the bottom of the bedroom door, as there was nothing on that door and the door could swing during travel. I also put down a clear runner on the carpeted steps because this is probably our highest traffic area over the carpet - outside to bathroom. This is especially true on margaritas nights.

5th_Time,

Congratulations!

Question, on your RL, is the hall door to the bedroom hinged on the bathroom side, or is it on the slide? I think it would be more convenient to use the washer/dryer if it was hinged to the bathroom wall, but I have seen it both ways in looking at different models (on line).

Just curious...

Keith

We have a 36FL and the next thing I plan to address is to add an A/B switch behind the bedroom television. When you switch from satellite to OTA you have to physically remove the tv from the wall and swap the cable connection... a pita as you might guess.
I already added some shims behind the top of the mounting bracket on that tv because the angle wasn't good for watching tv in bed, which is the whole point of having a tv in the bedroom.

Take couple of Advil before you start the task, that will help relieve your PITA.

Redwood needs to step up to the plate and change the whole coach over to LED lighting. It would extend battery life substantially. Halogens and neons are a huge drain. Someone had mentioned a doorbell, Walmart has wireless plug in or battery operated DB's for as low as $14. I don't think the factory would do it that cheap.

Some of you have mentioned LED replacement bulbs. Can you forward me where get the exact ones for those ceiling pan lights. Your right too much heat and energy. Also I have heard through the grape vine that the kitchen swag lamps don't last very long either. LED sounds like the way to go. Thank you for you for all your help.

LED lights also don't draw bugs....which tend to piss me off while buzzing around the lights

I did not know that. This Forum is not only fun but we have some well informed folks here. Thanks for that tidbit. Now if only they could repel Mosquitos.

The factory rep told me that the leds were just to expensive and most people thought the light was to blue in color but they are looking into alternative lighting options.Edited by: KR2011

Lanny, thanks for that tid bit. That means ours will be about the same height as our current Montana.
