Are there any exterior plastic components that don't yellow when exposed to the sun? That would be a great addition.
I agree with better documentation when it comes to wiring runs and areas available for modifications. I have always had to spend most of my time making sure I am not drilling or cutting the wrong thing when installing a modification. This would help the weekend handymen.
I think some manufacturers are going with upgraded power systems, but I would think it would be a great selling point to have the power system that everyone talks about on the forums already installed in your unit. I always ask myself "If we are all talking about it, why do they just include it in the first place?"
Pre wire for solar and possibly other additions. What does it cost to plan ahead for an inverter installation? Maybe that could be a selling point for dealers, "this baby is per wired for an inverter! We can get you that installed for just $$$$ additional."
I could probably come up with a couple more and I will think about it. Thanks for asking the question, it's a great communication tool and even though I own another brand, I'll remember that you asked if I ever purchase again.
You have touched on one of my personal "pet peeves". The quick answer is NO, there are no plastic exterior components that won't yellow. However, most of these components can be replaced with fiberglass, metal or other materials. It comes back to the old weight and cost formula, how much would you pay to get rid of the plastic?
What upgraded power system are you speaking of?
We do prewire for solar. The inverter is another story. All inverters have different installation specifications, hence the problem with a pre-wire.
Thank you for your comments. I try to always remind myself... it is not what we don't know, it is what we don't know we don't know. So I keep asking the questions.
