p.s. Awning should have been gray but I think dealer was out of stock on gray.

Getting a little crowded under there now. Stole Doug Kleven's idea for a coffee station under the sink, but the V is a little tighter than his J. I used two single shelf slide out units from Lowe's and welded supports on the glides to get the right height and stacked storage.

So about that split/adjustable bed in the 24J...do most of you pretend it has a solid head and just use a regular sheet on it?

Or have some of you clever folks figured out how to make one so that you don't lose the function of adjustable head?

We have found that we can use the bed with slight variations in height between the two sides. For sheets we bought them from AB Lifestyles, located at AB Lifestyles USA Made Bedding for Home and RV. They make sheets and mattress pads cut specifically for the curved mattress in the J model.

We use a conventional sheet
over thee inches of memory foam. We also really like our Travasaks which go over the memory foam. Beige in color.

Another question. Regarding the Dometic Midi Heki Skylight that was installed as a factory option...obviously there is no fan. Do any of you know if there is the option for a fan version. I do not see one at the Dometic site. We have been big fans of the Fantastic Fans since our first RV, a TT!

Do you have the 3" memory foam over the stock mattress cushion? We're thinking of doing it this way with our Navion but thinking 3" might be too much, maybe 2 1/2 or 2 inch.

We actually ordered the skylight rather than the fan. Big mistake! Skylight has popped open twice while driving - must stop to close. We never use it - it just lets in too much sun. Usually, we have reflecting insulation in it. Really wish we had ordered the fan option.

For another issue, we ordered a generator. But we only run it 30 minutes a month for the warranty. Do we really need a generator? Would we be better off using that space for more storage?

2016 View with skylight

We just love the skylight, because it brightens up the unit while you can leave the window shades closed for privacy.... Also there are two shades with the skyline. A light mesh that blocks some if not most of the light and acts as a bug screen when the skylight is open. The other built in shade totally blocks all sunlight. If the skylight does open by error, it opens from the rear with no danger of coming off. The exhaust fan in the ceiling by the bathroom works well with very little noise....just another observation....

I agree, concerning the skylight...my best girl liked it, and, because we were going to resell in 2 years , I agreed. It was a good decision...the rig sold relatively easily after 23 months.

The generator is pretty much a necessity for, resale purposes. And, what is harder to do is pay the extra $3K for the diesel option on the gen. But, that pays off in the resale market, as well.

We opted out of the opening skylight, due to concerns of the unit heating up on hot, sunny days. We had the dealer remove the bathroom fan and replace it with a wireless Fantastic Vent. Both the front and rear fans are covered with Maxx Air's so they can continue to run even if it's raining. We like having a generator, if for no other reason than to keep the dog comfortable while we're at rest stops in the middle of the day. Propane is fine and a lot less smelly than a diesel generator.

Personally, I like the electric exhaust fan in the bathroom for noise cancelling feature, if you know what I mean!

Diesel generator is more desirable for dry camping and brings big time resell value!

Just purchased a 2016 View24j and I have a question about the water pump.
Our pump pulses on and off during operation, is this normal? On our other RV the pump only comes on and off with the water being turned on.

We had a 2014 View. And, YES, our water pump cycled (without water usage).

It did not cycle often, I always thought the culprit was the outside shower, (hard to completely shut down) or the toilet.

We have a new 2016 View 24V, our water pump only cycles when we're using water. I did fix 2 areas where the hoses were kinked from the factory, one was on the suction side of the pump, the other was at the kitchen faucet. You may to look for any other plumbing issues that may be causing the problem as the attention to detail at the factory with the plumbing in my rig was not good.

What kind of dingy are any of you towing and have you had any issues? I am thinking about a Jeep Wrangler, Road Master tow bar and Road Master invisibrake system.
