My house has exposed plumbing to the toilet. Not sure how else you can do it.
I guess the issue with exposed RV plumbing is they run it in the weirdest ways and usually with blue PEX. Not very clean looking.

You know though, I don't think the blue pex looks any worse than the white/braided extension hoses you use from the water valve to any other faucet/toilet in a house really - and they're in all of them. Sort of like...if you want water there's a faucet whether you think they're cool or not. If you don't want it then what??

Sounds like a weekend modification waiting to happen to me! Think of all the fun that could be had.

Loved the floorplan and opted to move forward but other vendors in the same class deliver a product that goes that extra step. It gets me even more that in 2019 the new steps are in use and even have the blue Keystone nameplate on them yet a 2 dollar blue tube can't be concealed.

Obviously not going to make me retract an order but honestly, seriously, exposed plumbing on a 30k investment ???

Well now Miquel, good luck on finding a color coordinated sewer hose. Really this water supply is bothering you? Maybe you should motor on over to a Airstream dealer. You can get a "operating room look" for only 3X the cost with no slide outs. Not trying to be cynical (no need to try as it comes naturally to me) but before you go whining and crying about this take the time to read the posts of many new owners that have MAJOR issues with their campers. Maybe this will help.

I was astonished with the fit and finish when we started looking for ours. Then I found some informative videos on YouTube that told what to expect and why. As a cabinet/ furniture maker it is a big pill to swallow but there is plenty we can do to spice things up. Just yesterday, while evaluating my "free space" in the bathroom vanity I took some zip ties and tied all that extra tubing to the drain pipe and doubled my "free space". Some fixes can be that simple.


Enjoy your modifications!

A new member (longtime TT owner by the way) puts up a post about an irritation. Some responses commiserated and suggested modifications while others grabbed the baseball bat with nails. Had I received some of those aggressive responses when I joined up I'd have run for the hills and found a more receptive group. I get it, an exposed supply line is a minor irritation and we all know how TT's are slammed out at the factory and don't we all complain about it at one point or another? I've read many posts about "Where's the switch"? or "I'm confused on grey and black water valves" that seem like they could easily be self diagnosed, but the responses are always helpful. Let's keep this forum fun and informative. You've all been very helpful with my questions and I'm thankful for the overall tone of 99% of posts. Stepping off the soapbox now.

I thought I was answering his question.

I'm not new to forums, I ran one of the largest computer bulletin board systems in Florida back in the mid-80s and am all too familiar that I was setting myself up for a backlash of being unrealistic but the reality is that if 1 person from manufacturing read that post and takes it back to production and asks the same question and it leads to a change it was worth it.

BTW thanks for your response, very classy

Cheers!
Miguel
