Looks Great everyone!

Donna, what sink is that? We have the production date of our 5er now and getting the build list together. Looks like End of January 2015!

Looking at new Tugs now.

Donna, did you also delete the table mounts?

Ron, I have three switches now at the door jam. One to turn all the interior lights on, one for all exterior lights and one for just the porch light. All the lights continue to work independently too.

It should be noted that these are not the same three-way switches like in my house (at least not the interior lights in my trailer), i.e., the switch at the light source has to be "on" for the door switch to work. So leaving the trailer with the interior lights on and turning them all off at the door works, but entering the trailer and hitting the switch will only light the fixtures that already have the source light switch in the "on" position. I would assume that this applies to the exterior lights as well, but I could very well be wrong.

It applies to the exterior lights.

You are correct Karen. In order for all switches to work at the door jam, they need to all be in the same position. Otherwise, only some will turn on and off. The exterior lights are easy. I just didn't want to need to step inside the trailer to fumble for a light. If only some come on when I step inside in the dark, that works for me.

I once owned a nearly 100 y/o home that was wired like this.

Hi: Donna D... If you have the Std. Jensen Audio system put in... you don't need to turn on a light when coming back in the dark. Matter of fact you won't need a night light either!!! It's quite like "The house of blue light". Alf

When you say exterior lights, are you referring to the porch type lights on all sides?

I ask, because I saw a couple trailers at the Escape Rally that had their running lights on, which to me seems really strange, as I don't understand the purpose, as they are meant for travel. Maybe in case you get lost?

BTW, your trailer is sure looking fine, Donna. After touring Reace and Alf's at the rally, I do have a tinge of jealousy, though truth be told, our 19 really is working great for us, for now.
