One is threaded to accept a hose fitting from the "city" water source and would be pressurized. The other is just an access hole to dump water in from a hose or water jug or whatever.

1. Bathroom sink and the all important covered TP holder!

2. Bathroom door. Note how it's a bit shorter than the frame. This will allow some air circulation. CPAHarley, I suspect the 19 footer was the same way and I just didn't get it in any of my photos. and you can take that comment to the bank and cash it in for whatever you want.

3. Part of the kitchen area. Note the raised area to the back dinette. I measured it with my finger - very accurate, but later I measured that bit of finger and it's appx 3". I also know that cuz it was posted by someone else.

I was quite pleased to find that I did not trip over it or stumble over it going down from the dinette area. We'll see how that comment holds up once we get our new trailer and I'm racing to the cat box to clean it out as Spike just left a stinky one. Um, yeah.

4. Here's a better, longer view of that raised area. The table doesn't slide from side to side, so it was a bit tricky getting my big butt in there. Fortunately I won't have that problem in our trailer - the table isn't getting installed!

Gotcha, thanks for that clarification. When I had the motorhome rental last year I only used the city water hook ups.

1. Another general view, looking towards the back of the trailer. Note the mirrored door on the left.

2. Did you note it? Cuz now it's open and you can see inside it. It's too fuzzy, but the sticker above the outlet says it's only for microwave use. Dirk says they probably ran a lower voltage outlet there as the microwave doesn't use as much as other stuff. Least I think that's what he said, but I can't ask as he's gone to bed. He's not a night owl like I am.

3. Inside of the door of the frig. Those white finger thingies are there to catch your hand on as you're trying to put stuff in there and so you can teach your cat new swear words once that happens.

Or, they're there to keep your stuff in place while bouncing down the road. Take your pick. I know which one I'll pick (the potty mouth that I am).

4. The all important view of the inside of the frig. Also note the clear, plastic cover over the frig controls. Kind of neat they did that.

1. A much better view of the controls, with the protective cover flipped up. I know some concern had been expressed about hitting the controls as you walk by and this will solve that problem. Too bad the style in the 19 footer didn't have this cover. But, it is a wider trailer, so maybe that won't be a concern.

(We won't mention a pair of big butts crossing paths, will we? Not that I know anything about that!)

2. Now this is a very interesting shot and I wish I knew for sure what was going on. Dirk speculated that wood cover is over where the awning is attached, but heck if I know. This is inside the cabinet. Maybe it's from something that was there already, but since I've never really looked at the 17B with any great attention to detail, I could not tell ya. But someone with one probably could and hopefully will!

Oh yeah, note the rottie in the background in his pen. He barked at every single thing going on outside. I know, he's a guard dog, but you'd think he'd be used to the forklift zipping around by now.

3. Rottie on full alert!

Oh wait, I think I'm showing the opened window here. But, yeah that dog has jumped up and is looking at something. His next snack, maybe?

4. Photo of the rear dinette table and the area it hooks on to. Plus, the split windows. And the new 19 footer that will be hauled out of there soon (way in the background). And the back end of my FJ! (That's the best part of this photo!)

1. One of the rear windows opened. Heck if I know how that happened? Very nice airflow of the cooler air outside came in once windows were opened up.

2. A better shot of the table hinge thingies. Yep, multiple thingies in this photo!

3. And now both rear windows are open! Gremlins at work.

4. Safety escape window. I did not open that window you'll note.

Come on now, that's a rite of passage that one!

edit: ooops, meant removing screen, not opening window.

1. Cabinet over the back of the rear dinette. Note the smooth application of the vinyl up there.

Also note I'm not including measurements of anything, other than the lip on the floor. Measuring stuff was not part of my remit for going up there. A nice, huge amount in a Good Fund Me would be needed for that to be added to my remit. I'm just saying.

2. Cabinet on the street side. The white thingie you see in there is actually a small flip up counter/table. Heck if I know why it was in there. To whop intruders over the head that get past the guard rottie? I dunno. Obviously I'm just guessing here.

3. And the small kitchen counter. It would be tricky preparing a 5 course meal here. I guess that's why many of you use an outside grill and table, you think? Anyway, note the stove top is turned to a different orientation than on the 19 footer I posted about earlier today. I do not know if this is the standard orientation due to how small (length and width challenged to be properly PC-ish, I guess) this area is. Someone with far more knowledge of this size trailer can answer that. I just found it nice to see both orientations in the same day.

4. Darn those gremlins. They flipped up this side table, but at least you folks can see what it looks like flipped up. More counter space for that 5 course meal you're gonna fix.

I removed my screen permanently as there are plenty of other windows to open for ventilation. It is amazing how much light those screens cut out.

Well, yeah, but there was also the issue of the screen that was very loosely attached (and I mean loosely!) and the issue of said screen coming off in my hand. And said screen not going back on very easily. So, yeah, I avoided that window. Plus, I know that latch is a bugger to use and I didn't feel like breaking a nail. Yeah, that's it.

but I guess I passed that rite of passage by removing the screen that I think the previous passage person didn't put back in properly.
