Perhaps I should have described the "gables" as "millwork" or something, rather than "cabinetry". Whatever the correct term - certainly not "woodwork" - they're interior finishing bits rather than part of the shell.

Jim, your fiberglass door frame is probably about the same as in the first Escape I saw, a 17' (the only model back then) in 2006 - I don't recall where the switches were:

LOL... Just what I was going to say. There are no switches other than the ones on the lights.

We did not have switches even on our 2011. Was glad to get them in 2015. Now those are changed due to the new design apparently. Glad we have ours. They are nice switches, too.

Well, that explains why I don't remember them!

I am lucky--we have a switch for the outdoor light behind our folding screen door on the wall by our fridge..We have a 2008

Must have been something the previous owners asked for--wish they would have gotten the tinted windows!!!

The first Escape that I saw was a 17B with a switch for the porch light on the fridge cabinet...so I just assumed that they came that way. So when I ordered mine, and added 3 more exterior lights (front , back, drivers side), I asked that one switch control the porch and a second adjacent switch to control the rest. I have since exchanged the driver's side light to one with a switch, so it can remain off if need be.

New egg hatching this month

Long awaited Escape 19 started production this last week. We have a June 29 due date and are scheduled to pick up on July 15th. Only problem is our truck engine started to make a noise. Hopefully we can get it taken care of before then.
