Just a quick question, new to AI 19 here.What does the red kill switch do? Does it disconnect all electronics from the battery? Both start and house battery ? Should I switch it to OFF before I leave the coach at night? to prevent the generator to start up? Any answer would be greatly appreciated.

That is what worries me. Will update.

PREEDTX - Wow! Thats high praise from you considering the full range of rv's you have owned. Congrats on the new toy & a succesful maiden voyage. There are hundreds of big or small tweaks you can do to make it even better, just search away. Having an enclosed air conditioned workshop while doing mods makes it soooo nice. Mine is inside garage too but not air conditioned. But it is insulated and still big help in summer. It is cooler this weekend, only 106 vs. 112 last week Welcome to the forum.

I'm curious too. Did the faucet handle work itself on, or did the spout work it's way out?

Did anyone here consider a Winnebago Revel?

https://winnebagoind.com/binaries/co...-digital.x.pdf
AF Revel mentions: https://www.google.com/search?q=Winn...com&gws_rd=ssl

One mention in the other 19' thread:

Looks pretty nice IMO.

OTRA15 - last year right after I attended the Pomona CA rv show, I posted that I thought the Revel had some nice & interesting ideas for those seeking a shorty-semi-off-roader. Only response was negative. So I did not post any more beyond the few words & 1 pic

There have been a few reports in this forum of the bath faucet handle being bumped on or not totally turned off, usually during a late night visit. It sticks out away from the faucet/sink. Drips/slow run can either overflow the sink if plugged. the shower bottom if plugged or even worst case fill up the gray tank and overflow the shower area into the aisle floor. I have seen a post of someone trying to swivel the faucet mount toward the sink wall but with little success. I have not seen a post of a complete solution except the work around.

We are in the habit of turning the pump on/off each time we use either sink or use the shower or flush the toilet. I am sure that sounds like a pain to most of you, but it is now second nature to us and it avoids any possibility of flooding.

Ditto with the inside LPG switch: Turn it on just before using the furnace, stove, water heater, or generator and off just after usage.

There was a previous mention of the sliding door rattling. I have found that there are cover plates under each side sofa that are visible when the cushions are slid out that rattle badly on my unit. Have added pieces of foam in places to quiet. I tried to figure out how one easily gets to the water pump filter to check it as the manual suggests. I called AS customer service to ask if it was necessary to remove the seat mechanism and this cover plate. The rep was not sure but would get back to me. Didn't say when. Ha.

2020 Seatbelt Question

Does anyone know how many seatbelts are in the new 2020 19? Also are their rear head rests? In the pictures / videos I no longer see them.

We were hoping with the new MB frame changes, we could use the 19' as a day tripper for up to 6 or 7 passengers (3 children). I "think" the side seats by the bed could each fit another passenger as the design is similar to its bigger brothers. Does anyone know?

It would be great to use this like a mini-van that could hold 7 for a day trip, and then with the Cabbunk bunk bed design take along 2 kids over-night on the rare occasion :-)

Thanks!!

JASPERKINS - Unfortunately, if transporting 7 people will require the AI EXT. I have the Lounge floorplan with 9 legal seatbelts. But it is really only comfortable for 7 people for any trip longer than a trip to the local grocery or park. We use ours all the time as a local people mover and have only put 9 on a trip from home to local restaurant.

The Nineteen is a 4 seater as of todays posted brochure (this & other specs can be downloaded from their website). I also attach latest pics of rear sofa showing the seatbelts where it attaches to rear floor storage area. Taken from my dealer inventory a few weeks ago.

I watched the video below last night and found it very interesting when the CEO Dean Rumpel of PleasureWay spoke about MB chassis. He said that some of the MB chassis options that his family owned business ordered from MB were not being delivered as ordered. He even used the MBUX as an example of how they ordered them with the 10.25" screen but sometimes they get the 7" screen. He also mentioned that PleasureWay isn't accepting dealer special orders due to not knowing exactly what options will arrive in a unit.

I've always done that.
It takes an additional 2 seconds? Why supply power to a pump that's trying to force water through a line with only a faucet to hold it back? Give it a rest!

I'm assuming you don't have the new improved method of the multi-screen CZONE control panels for the water pump located more than an arms length from the bathroom door but have a simple perfectly adequate on/off switch or two. But i agree still worth the effort.

TITUS - now that we are in our 2nd yr, we finally in this habit. It is not a pain (never was), we just plain forget at times. But now, entire fam knows which screen & button on Firefly screen to activate. Even 4 yr. old grandson points to Firefly main panel (not the secondary panels) and yells "water bump" (yes, Bump not Pump) before asking to use the toilet. Training them early to minimize flood risk.
