Bingo, Where is your dishwasher? Does it sit on the counter or is it in a cupboard? I went online and looked at the dishwasher and it looks really nice. Do you like it?

We sit the dishwasher on the 3400's wrap around counter (one of the primary reasons we selected this model). There is someone on the forum who actually did an installation in the island cabinet. It should be noted that our model (I do not know if this has been improved upon), does not have a drying cycle. It washes a 4 person place setting and we are very happy with it. The drying cycle is simply opening the door slightly and letting the dishes air dry. I must say the dishwasher works better than we ever expected. In one of my previous posts, I stated that we are hoping to have a countertop cabinet constructed for it that will match the OEM cabinets, but we have not had this done yet.

Our 2008 3665RE has the wrap around countertop also. I like the idea of having a dishwasher (other than myself LOL). Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the list, Art. This thread is for the people attending the mid-atlantic rally in August so we can see each others mods. Are you planning to be there? We'd love to see your mods.

Our Modifications:
Shut off valve at the end of the sewer which gives extra storage for grey water.








A previous owner removed the toilet and closet wall partition creating one large bathroom. Works well for us.

On edit: another mod was simply the W/D sitting openly in the BR which you can see in the photo below. It was relatively easy since it didn't have to go inside the closet. I have it fastened to the floor with four leg clamps that have worked well so far. Having it turn over was a reason to re-consider securing it to the floor.





Our most recent modification is a new camping buddy! Of course he is growing fast he may reach a full 5--6 lbs when fully grown. I had him to the vet not long ago and he weighed a whopping 2.8 lbs.





Photo just taken this morning.






Here is a link to a TV modification I just completed on 06/15/09.



On Edit: Shur-Flo fan installation in the bath room. Loved it when it was working! Had a problem on our first camping trip, called Shur-Flo and they sent a new motor and circuit board to me.


07/27/09: I received the Shur-Flo fan and circuit board and I have replaced them. I’m not sure that the fan was bad so I possibly have a spare fan now. The circuit board appeared to be what was bad. I went ahead and changed both of them out just in case and everything is working properly once again.
