We are in a 2017 model but love ours. A couple of cautions slide stopped working when wire dropped into leaf springs and grounded out. Keep an eye on outside kitchen for water intrusion. Other than that have fun and enjoy

Out on our madden voyage ! guess what, The coaxial cable connecter is not even hooked up! I could not get any channels from the parks cable connection. so I started tracing wires, found the splitter under the rear bed. What a damn mess of wires and connections under there. I am an elevator constructor and wire up equipment almost daily. guessing I'm going to be doing some cleaning up of wiring ad connections. I'm planning on redoing the TV cable distribution. thinking about a HDMI switch of some type. then I can have one satellite receiver and send it to all TV locations.

For your future plans, remember the Sat receiver needs a cable connection directly to it without any splitter or other device prior it.

Yes I just ordered a HDMI splitter. Plan is to run 2 HDMI cables to each TV location, then put my equipment in 1 central location. And yes a special coax connector for my satilite dish.

Well the appeared splitter worked great. So I will order another splitter and start gathering HDMI cables and get a game plan going.
1 more thing do these MH's not come with a spare tire and wheel! I just glanced under it and no tire or wheel to be found.

Wheel and tire, about $275. Mount extra. I carry mine in the large storage area. Hint, wear a truss to lift it up and put it in there.

That sucks that there is not at least an extra wheel included.
Well I guess I'll find one and figure out a mounting place. There's a lot of room in the rear in front of the receiver hitch.

I use the road master hitch spare tire mount which also allows me to flat tow - expensive but worth it to me. Available on Amazon and etrailer
