    Power cord hatch mod

    Why does the hatch door open in the up position instead of just dropping down. Holding the hatch while attempting to guide the cord makes for an awkward/comperson experience. If the hatch just dropped down then would eliminate the hassle Dumboldles

    To my DW and I the king sized bed took up way to much room in the bedroom; we had the dealer (Desert RV St George, UT) modifie the frame to fit a queen. Found a queen madras at a local store and works great. I'm not sure what the appeal is for king sized beds in rvs. Dumboldles
