Front window - NEVER use it.

Can't think of anything I don't use other than the frosted window in the bedroom door. It's had a foil cover thingy on it from day 1.

10 gallon water heater is the BOMB!

must have add ons
Fantastic fans and vent covers or a combined vent with built in cover for every vent location. three speeds with in and out.

Hooks in the bottom of a cabinet for hanging all the keys.

Thermo for the fridge.

We dont use the Oven.....whoops, we dont have one!!! I have to agree with the previous posted about over the air TV antenna's and the new digital age. If your anywheres close to a City, there are so many channels available. We normally tune the bedroom TV to loacl digital channels and use the other TV's for SAT.

I know that I carry way too much stuff with me and of course, I organize about twice a year, sometimes removing items never used but most times just moving things from one bin to another.

I use my outdoor shower to wash my hands after dumping my tanks. That is all it has ever been used for.

The only things that come to mind that we haven't used in our current rig is the spare tire and some of the tools in my toolbox. Everything else does get used from time to time, including the outside shower that actually gets used for showers sometimes when boondocking, as well as for dog washing, hose rinsing, and hand washing.

We never use the oven, would rather have cabinet space.

The jack knife sofa is uncomfortable. May take it out and put down a mattress that fits with some big pillows on it like a day bed.

I have not used the holding tank heater pads,phone jack, the inverter,or the built in sewer pipe holder. The holder is only about a foot deep and the circumference is too narrow for the attachments to fit in. We use the sewer pipe compartment as a safe for our valuables, what thief would look for jewels and money in there!
We actually use our oven all the time. I use the outside shower occasionally, but usually hook up a y joint with an extra hose and nozzle because I get better water pressure to wash off items.
Don't use the satellite TV connection. Just use cable or antenna.
Don't use Sirius Radio.
Rarely use the speaker on the rear camera I just turn the volume off, wife's yelling can be heard for miles!

Outdoor kitchen. Why be out with the bugs when there is a better kitchen inside?

TT came with television, never used it or the antenna. We like to read, and there is rarely anything on TV worth watching, even assuming we knew it was on, could figure out how to aim the antenna, and knew how the fancy TV worked.

Dinette. Threw it away and installed a recliner. Much more comfortable, especially with vibrator and heat options. TV trays work fine to eat on.

Docking lights. What a waste!
