I've got an Atwood on my 21, not nearly as noisy as on my last trailer (unless you hit the limit, when it clutches and makes the rachety noise.)

I almost bought one at Princess Auto for $100, regular $250, but gave my head a shake. Why fix it, if it ain't broke.
Exactly.

Some people raise the tongue which makes it easier to install the bars un bent, so to speak. Others install the bars and then tighten them down, causing a slight bend which is the bars working.

tongue jack option

With the 19 I just used the hand crank, on the 21 I also went that way until my shoulder started to bother me with the stabilizers and tongue cranking. During the trip I ordered the largest Amazon jack, 4500# as I do use the jack for attaching the Andersen chains. Amazon delivered the jack the next day to Candle Stick RV park and I installed it in the parking space. I love it and it is very quiet.
Jack

Can anybody tell me if the extra 12 volt outlet had a dedicated/single line or is it spliced with other lines?
I am thinking of wiring a 12 volt outlet after the build, once I know where I want them.
Are there wires accessible under the rear bed of the 19?
Thanks

ETI will install 12V "drops" where you specify, I think it was $25 per. They loop around 3 ft of wire and fasten it in the area you want. I had drops put in under our bed and in the overhead cabinet areas for future lighting. Might want to make sure the drops are hot though, one of ours was crimped into the supplies for the tank sensors instead of 12V that would be on all the time.

Charlie, I think they do not connect drops on purpose but I am not exactly into electrical.
