I love Friday's!!

Okay, I've seen one switch, two switches, now three switches by the door. What are you going to use the third switch for?

I see the Jack option, 2 extra drawers, the foot flush, several extra 12v, extra tail lights, ss sink, radio. I see the digital thermostat, bigger refer. Donna, the extra switch is for the spare tire backup light.

Doug what was the reason you requested 14 gauge wire for your 12 volt outlets? What is the standard wire Escape uses for their outlets. High lighted in your build list.

I'd say with 190 watts and dual 6's, he is planning on doing some heavy duty inverting or found a 12v microwave!

It is highlighted because ETI put it in red - I don't know if the color means anything.

I think the standard is 16 - and 14 gauge will allow higher current draws and/or less voltage drop. Several posters have noted that using small (200 watt?) inverters can be problematic due to voltage drop - 240 watts at 12V is 20 amps. I have no specific 12V appliance in mind but a 12V coffee pot might be doable.

The dual 6V, dual solar, and LED lights are to allow (limited) microwave use on the inverter and indefinite camping without a generator. (Unless it is too hot and I need A/C.)

Donna - I will install 1 or 2 LED backup (flood) lights on the back bumper (or somewhere.)
