New 2016 Winnebago Sunstar and modifications
I have recently purchased my 7th Winnebago. I now have a 2016 Winnebago Sunstar model 31BE. I love it. It is a well made product. My list of Winnie products started with a class c Warrior, then a class a Brave, followed by 2 class a Adventurers, then a class a diesel, a Journey, followed by a class c, Aspect, and now the class a Sunstar. The Sunstar has a great floor plan, tons of storage for me, and it handles very well on all types of roads. Like many motorhome guys I sometimes feel the need to make some modifications. So, my first question, pertains to the Pioneer radio that came with this unit. Initially, I thought that it had Bluetooth capability that would allow hands fee use of my IPhone. Alas I got the base model that does not have Bluetooth. Should I undertake an upgrade and install myself of a Pioneer BT or leave it in the hands of a competent Winnebago tech? I have done tons of work myself in the past but I try to take care with what I take on. Additionally, the only issue that has frustrated me so far pertains to the compartment where a sewer hose passes down through an opening and out to the sewer. Winnebago hasn't made the p ass through opening big enough to permit either end of my hoses to pass through easily. I am using the Rhino type hoses and connectors presently since the hoses are strong and durable. I am puzzled as to why they don't make the diameter of the pass through port just a tad larger in diameter in order to accommodate most products on the market. I also don!t like the fact that one runs their water hose right alongside the sewer hose in the pass through opening. That is not a good design or idea IMHO. Very good motorhome nonetheless. We got rid of theJourney when my wife became ill in 2013. After her passing last May! I went to the Aspect which I liked in many respects but the floor plan didn't work for me and thus onto the Sunstar. Let me know of your thoughts about the radio or the pass through port. Thanks.
