Interesting that the factory closed off that bench storage on you.  Like you say, maybe it houses too much infrastructure equipment.

Our front dinette has that power outlet, the power transfer switch, and the subwoofer.  The bench is accessible from the side and above for stuff to be dumped all around and on top of them.  Even with the obstacles, the storage is still well utilized.  BTW: our older model has no drawers.  That came standard a year or two later.

Are there seat belts on the forward facing seat? I would guess that the seat belt laws require that the seat be fixed in place. Any chance I am right?

My dinette has 2 sets of seat belts per bench.  The belts bolt to the floor, not to the bench.

Yes, it has two sets of seatbelts on that forward facing seat only. Donít know positively where theyíre anchored, but apparently on the floor by feeling a slot behind the seat. Still, it would be nice to access any additional space if there is any.  But have to assume the space pretty much used by something.

Hey gophoenix, I thought I had broken my rear dinette seat and found the seatbelts in there.  Push up on the front edge a little bit & see if it pops up.  Or...see if anyone else can also get into theirs.

Well, Kevin, youíre right. I had to pull harder that I was initially willing to pull. A Helpful vote for your Helpful Rating. But itís only about six inches deep, and even carpeted!  Considering the effort to get it out and back in place, I would only want to put something there that I would not expect to need very often. But that left a lot of space under that, so what could it be? When I showed by very smart wife, she said she knew what it was. ďSoĒ, I said, ďwhat?Ē After her answer, I said, ďDuh.Ē  Her answer: the mechanics for the slide.  (WH)

gophoenix.  It seems a good place to store delicate items purchased on trips.  My wife often buys a picture in a frame or cardboard backing, leaving me to wonder how to protect it during the rest of the trip.

Yes, it would make a good space for that. Iím going to make you guys jealous though: my wife hates to shop. As for not seeing the outlet before now, she suggested it was because of my 68 year-old eyes. But Iím sure that isn't it.  :-D

Under the dinette seat facing forward. I installed the blue electric box. The blue line on the wall to the beige board where the seat belts are, are directly under the seat. there is storage there but you would need to raise the seat to get to it.

Okay Now........I am Jealous.

Joking aside, my wife's shopping is most often "gifts" for others.  At least it isn't piling up at home.   :)  And she is frugal in her shopping too.....(sigh of relief)

There is a carpeted board over the wires and stuff. Nice storage just a pain to get to. You very welcome.

Thanks Judi.  Letm me know if Kermit agrees to the floorplan change - sounds like a great option.


>Our take is, given that they are both built on the same chassis, we like the forward part of the 2910 with the 2 Euro chairs with the table between and the rear of the 3100 with the twin beds and the bath in the rear. We do not like dinettes. Would rather sit on the sofa and eat or eat outside.

Saturday, we went over to Eppers RV (the factory dealer in the area) to look at the 2910 again. We like from the kitchen forward but do not like the back with the queen in the rear slide'

A couple of weeks ago, we emailed Amanda to ask Kermit if our layout could be built on the 2910/3100 chassis. She got back to us stating that she asked Kermit and he would have to think about it. That is where it stands now.

If PC built that with the twin beds, bath in the rear and front 2910 layout, we would be the first in line.

.We heard from Amanda and Kermit indicated that the 2910 could be built with the front of the 2910 and the back of the 3100. That is the ideal floor plan. The living area is much more spacious and the twin beds with the bath in the rear is, in our opinion, a better use of the space.

That being said, we are now considering being committed to the mental health facility here in town. We are discussing moving up to the 2910 (operative word discussing-this would be our 3rd PC in 3 years!) and the possibility of trading our 2551. It certainly would be more comfortable for "sunbirding" in the future.
