So you have at least thought about upgrading again. Our 19 fits our needs rather well but I sure like the look of the new 5 TA. Hopefully I will see one in person someday.

Can one reach the bottom part of the galley kitchen cupboards without a stool - or is it just the higher cabinets above the microwave type?

Thanks for the replies - they are very helpful.

Just a little conflicting opinions about the two compartments at the front on both sides. There is the possibility of
a. both being the electric switch to raise and lower jacks so they would act independently.
OR
b. that the passenger side is a small storage compartment and the drivers side is access to the electric jack switch that runs both jacks in sync at the same time.

Does anyone know which it is for sure (a or b?). And also back to the battery compartment question - does anyone know if that under dinette bench storage has enough room for 2-6Volts?

Thanks

The motors of the jacks are on top of each jack assembly. I believe that a hatch on each side is required for service access (in case that is ever required), regardless of the switch location.

Thanks. That makes sense ... always had manual jacks - I think I get it now. So, really it would seem the only exterior storage is that large one in the front above the propane tanks. That one in it's self looks pretty impressive though.

Build photos from Vicki and Padlin (in post #282 and post #253 of of It's Friday!) show a hatch on the curb side at the rear. I assume that this is the optional "Exterior Access Hatch (Rear Passenger Side)" for access to the area under the dinette seat.

Will 30lb propane tanks fit in the TA without door/storage area modifications? Just need to modify the hold down arrangement?

That would be very nice. But someone mentioned the battery bank is located here - perhaps that is separate and this is extra? That would be sweet!

Correct, I'm under the impression the batteries are on the other side.
