Same here, the UPS just delivered 3 boxes "stuff I need for the new trailer." Now I'm going to have to sit looking at it for another 4 months. By the way, the Oxygenics did not fit in my 19', too tall. I found a smaller model. I still have the Oxygenics, hoping it may fit in the 21'
Maybe we need a list of things not to buy

Jim, too tall? I assume that u are too tall for the length of the hose. My wife and I are short, so hopefully it'll work for us.

It will not fit in the holder on the wall once attached, the stock one is shorter and works fine. In addition it is a lot heavier, I was afraid it may pull the shower holder attachment off the wall.

You can always remove the Oxygenics head while traveling and just hook it up while showering, that is an alternative.

Maybe just call it an outside fresh water rinse..lol.. when your coming back to the trailer from a swim in salt water and covered in beach sand, a warm rinse off and a dry towel sure beats those cold showers in the beach change houses or tracking red PEI beach sand into the trailer. I just put my bath tiles outside for the duration of the visit, flip the water heater on when I go down to the beach. Heaven, when you get back. Lug a few gallons of fresh water every once and a while.

My brain is a bit fuzzy this morning, but I SWEAR I read somewhere in the last two weeks, that someone wanted to go from a single battery to the dual 6volt. They talked with Tammy, it's obviously doable, but that meant a trip to the factory and $400... which I'm assuming included the cost of the new batteries.

I can't find the post! It was either here or FiberglassRV. Does anyone remember reading it?

Donna, I couldn't figure out how to post the link, but the thread was: Furnace/Battery & post #35.

Thanks kstock11 and Jim. I knew I had read it!! For those of us currently working on build sheets these kinds of decisions need to be made. I ALWAYS think about decisions that affect the future. $200 now or $400 in the future... no brainer.

In that discussion is was not clear whether or not batteries were included. I assume not, because that would leave very little for a large battery box and significant labour.

A pair of roughly similar batteries at Canadian Tire cost about $360... for the batteries alone.
