On our 2008 5.0 that is exactly what we have to do. The curb side hatch is directly behind the awning leg so we have to release the awning leg to access the hatch. Just means you need to think about what you want to put in there and plan your usage if you are not planning to have the awning deployed!

Maybe you could keep the awning in the hatch .

Hi: FMLNM... I always use the hatch behind the awning arm for jugs of Maguiar's Deep Crystal wax/wash. WalMart Canada $9.95 WalMart US $3.95. Extra jugs of LA's Awesome cleaner Dollar General US. $1.00... Canada N/A. Toys for the grands if they fit thru the door. Alf

I was slithering under bed installing vinyl carpet runner to protect the refletix (?) insulation from the inevitable bouncing storage containers. I noticed there is a large storage space where the shore power cord would go. We have the detachable power cord. This space is basically inaccessible without the crawling gymnastics and container removal. I wonder if Reace can position the water fill and the removable power cord connector so a exterior access hatch can be installed to utilize this space.
