On the 5.0 TA there is a loop of water line in the hatch that has the landing gear switches, on the driver’s side. That is where I installed my cut off valve for the toilet. Scott

Thanks, I'll double check on the toilet valve. The one I saw on Peanut was located outside in an existing hatch area. I can't recall now what else was in that hatch....perhaps Padlin can help clarify...the valve was inserted into the water line going to the toilet so if there was a plumbing problem with the bathroom, the water supply to just that area could be isolated. Perhaps memory fails. The quote of $25 is from Escape.

I really like having a switch by the door for one of the inside lights, but others will disagree.
Thanks for the info! I figured the closet would be a pretty penny but it was a request of my Dear One. The cost of rotating the stove top is a quote from Sarah at Escape soo I guess it's not standard for the 5.0TA. The light switch will be worth it so I'm not stumbling around in the dark (well at least outside of my mind...)

Seems to me one would want 2 shut off valves, one inside protected, one outside exposed to the cold in the hatch which is unheated.

The ceiling light switch is a good idea in the 5.0 as the ceiling is a lot higher than in the conventional models.

Correct, it's inside the hatched area, accessible from outside.

Mine is located in the hatch with the switches that control the front jacks.

That small run of water line is the Achilles heel of the 5.0 TA for shoulder season camping. I covered that section with pipe foam, wrapped with fiberglass insulation with a rubber gasket duct taped against the back side of the bathroom wall. With on board water we have camped in the mid-teens at night, with above freezing temps during the day with no freezing issues. Scott
