X215WSK Bedroom extension
Hi, I'm a newbie here and to RVs. Just purchased a 2013 X215WSK looks to be totally stock and only lightly used, still had the factory tires on it and they still had some of the molding nubbies on them. I changed them due to their age of course. I searched the form but did not see a thread with this MOD. I'm sure it must have been done before as its a no cost , easy to do MOD that makes a big difference for anyone >6
Anyway Im 6'3" tall 235lbs and thought I could make the bed work for me. Well once the S.O. and pooch were in the bed too I found it just was not going to work.
So I moved the center wall with the TV back into the main Living Room 3.5". It was very easy to do, just removed the decorative inside top plywood that was just stapled up there and removed the 6 wood screws screwed into the ceiling. Then I removed the 6 exposed wood screws in the bottom. That's all that held the wall in place. I then moved the top of that cabinet towards the LR, then the bottom. I ended up moving it 3.5" and now my feet can rest over the edge of the bed unincumbered There is a hole in the ceiling where the TV coax is routed to the TV that may be partially exposed in the bedroom but its easy to cover with a bit of trim. Screwed all the screws back in top and bottom, stapled the top plywood back in, then the trim.
Took about 30min to complete the task including cutting and installing trim.
Slide still closes fine, wont be able to squeezed past the slide into the bedroom on the slide side when the slide is closed, not that I could have before.
