Which is always possible.


Just as soon as your wife turns on her blow dryer, while the WH is running, the coffee maker is running and your youngest just dropped a couple EGGO's in the toaster, you will understand.

LOL

Bear in mind that, if you do use both outlets, you can potentially draw up to 50A for your one campsite--when the campground is expecting you to draw at most 30. That could cause issues.

Someone on the FROG forum related a story about a site that had three pedestals being supplied by a 100A breakered box behind a lock. 30 + 30 + 50 = 110. When the circuit blew, three sites down, and no way to fix it until the AM.

Has anyone removed the sink from the wet bath in the 178/179?  Is the same wall material behind it with just screw holes to fill?  Would be simple and add some room.

I have not removed it, but there is a hole under the sink where the P trap for the sink drain and the fittings for the black water flush reside in the 179. The sink skirt covers this hole so that it is not visible. Some people have ordered a kit from Forest River that provides a panel to cover the hole. I would not mind removing the sink in ours to gain the additional room, but the wife has vetoed that idea. She wants to keep the sink.

This goes for all rv manufacturers and Forest River is definitely no exception.   My wish list consists of only two words.  "Quality construction"
