The bathroom: The hose from the shower head not coming from the tap of the sink any more? Where is it coming from?
I removed the shower hose and put it away until needed.

I believe you turn it on and it is thermostatically controlled, but I'll try it tomorrow and see if it comes on, it is getting close to supper time for now.

It did not come open while towing. Finally, the smoke lens is see thru, except it is a cloudy day.
when the new 2017 ETI 19 first came out it was reported that the medicine cabinet door in the bath when opened hit the ceiling vent handle and did not open correctly. ETI indicated this was going to be fixed by changing the height of the cabinet or something. Since your is one of the new 2017 ETI 19 trailers has this been resolved on yours?
thanks

Meat and potatoes pictures! Now your talking. Like that fridge and those bath door hinges. I always wondered by there was not a 3rd door on the lower kitchen cabinets and now there is.

I see Amazon has delivered.

probably some dumb newbie questions...
Why is the ventilator fan switch accessible from the outside rather than the inside of the trailer?

In the picture it appears to be OFF..do you leave this in the ON position when using the trailer?

Is it 120vac or 12vdc fan?

To clarify, this is the optional external fridge fan on the build sheet?

Freespirit,
The medicine cabinet does not hit the vent fan and the optional refer fan is 12v. I plan to use it when the temperatures get above 80.....I believe it is thermostatically controlled, will verify.

thanks for the info and the pics!

someone also mentioned that the black and grey water tank dump releases are different?

solar panel mount now glued to roof and/or bolted?
Solar cable entry where?

Yes, the grey is now accessible from the location of the black tank valve, right next to it versus in the rear of it. Also there is a 45 degree discharge angle now. The solar info will have to wait till I get a ladder.

may be just the angle and/or not a big deal, but in your pic of the rear of your trailer in post #21..the outer lights left and right at the top appear to not be mounted to a continuous flat surface but rather one screw on each looks like it is mounted thru the fiberglass in the recessed area. If it really is like this, hopefully this doesn't present a sealing issue between the light and the fiberglass....
