I thought it was just our trash can slide that was misaligned or installed incorrectly, it will slide about 80% of the way out, (not enough to get the waste basket out) give it a little tug and it comes all the way out.

I think it would be great for the door to the basement on the passenger side to be a double door like on the drivers side, seems ridiculous to continually have to bend down to keep from bumping your head on this door. As I heard earlier, move the receptacle out from behind the door. A switch for the red led lights on the front would be real handy inside the coach. My biggest complaint (currently) is the location of the sewer storage pipe, why should you have to get down on your hands and knees to get back under the coach to stow a hose in a tube that is really not long enough to hold two hoses, this is a wrestling match that I lost the last time I tried to stow it.

You bump your head on the passenger side cabinet? Are the struts weak? Mine opens well out of the way.

I do bump mine on the swing up television, though. Do you?

Ya, and I also hit that TV a lot when loading. I got a cover for it which is kind of saving the screen a little better.

It's still my preference to have it there rather than in the slide, just based on how we lay out our campground.

I wish they would have put the double door on the right side also. I moved the inside strut mounts up on the right side and it still will not hold the door open. I requested CW fix or change the struts when they worked on ours, but they did nothing. I guess RW would not let them change the struts.
I agree about the sewer hose storage. Too far under, hate getting on my knees to get the end cap on. Looking at options to make one now.

They put weaker struts on after all the hinges the where using on 2013 models broke just don't make sense you put a bad hinge design in and they break so you change the struts

I tried to chase down the changes by Redwood by looking at different model years on the Dealer lots and got dizzy. Even the Dealer service rep went with me.

My theory was that when they went to the piano style hinge vendor, that they went to the stronger struts, but they were a mix. Sometimes one side was the stronger strut and the other side of the door was the weaker. Sometimes both weak, sometimes both strong. The Dealer and I settled on a custom design of the medium weight tri-hinge and a strong strut on the left and weak strut on the right. So far it is working and the door swings up out of my way.

I would be guessing, but I think the complete door assemblies come with struts designed for that specific door, but they may get all mixed up in production, or else the door supplier themselves are just throwing on what they have. I don't know.

They went from a full width hinge to the three piece and they started breaking thru the holes so they put softer struts on and they still broke them they went back to the full hinge and I bet stayed with the soft struts

I wish it was that simple, but between 2 Dealers we found no rhyme or reason with the changes between year and model. There were 3 door vendors they were (or are) dealing with, and it almost seems like they pull whatever is in stock at the time.

One person wished for a galley grey tank that was hooked up to the bath grey tank so they could share grey storage. The dealer at the Dallas RV show told me it did and the pamphlet stated "90 gallon grey water storage", but when we got ours they were two independent 45 gallon tanks. That would be at the top of my wish list. We could go without dumping for a long time.

Re: 'place to put a glass of wine between the recliners'....we bought two Lazyboy recliners and gained about 3 inches of extra room between the recliners. We ordered the same table that are on each end of the sofa and put it between the recliners and it works well. $100 at Crossroads RV 574-266-2136

Our RW galley and gray tanks can be merged creating a 90 gal. system. The dealer carried a twist on dump valve. To merge tanks just assure that the twist on valve is closed then open both the grey and galley tank valves. This merges the two tanks.

This is a great thread.
We would love to see some kind of built in area for shoes inside the front door. Doesn't have to be a big deal: We were thinking that (for example) in the 38RL you might be able to leave a 10" or so space under the entry cabinet so that shoes could be tucked in there. For those that didn't want that, you could put baskets or something. Really hate having shoes in the doorway all the time. :-) Just a little thing but would be nice. Maybe 4 or 5 pair.

We would like to see RW attempt to address the BIGGEST struggle for fulltimers: Getting service (in or out of warranty) when they are in an unfamiliar place (which is OFTEN that is the whole idea behind fulltiming!!). Maybe they already are, but what about a phone number/webpage you could access that dispatches you to the nearest resource to get help. Very much like Triple A (AAA) does for their customers. I realize it would take some building, but the ROG could help with this. A "voice in the dark" help line. Sometimes the hardest part is knowing who to call. Redwood is in a unique position to know their product and what it needs.
