Congrats Kevin on the order, we're hoping to order a 19 or 5.0 for late fall delivery. Need a TV as well, had not considered the Acadia. I know you've only had it five days but how is it? We were just in your state a couple of weeks ago, visiting in Hope Mills, it's really beautiful there, just wish the weather had been nicer - especially at the beach - really winter and chilly!

Good for you, Kevin! Those aluminum rims look nice.

Don't know if I'd get foam for hot weather. It adds a lot of weight so that is a consideration. Could be 90 lbs.

An EMS will protect the A/C when everyone is running it at the campground at the same time. I am not aware that the surge protector does that.

I did not see EMS listed under options. Does the factory converter come with Electrical Management System built in?

Spray foam complements the insulation package, warm walls, warm floor. If cold is not an issue I'd skip both of those options. I's also skip the dual 6 volts and go with single 12v until you determine your needs. Assuming you will be hooked with with a/c means your non electric needs are minimal. Not familiar with factory Escape's surge protector, here is the one I am familiar with
Progressive Industries 30 Amp Electrical Management System - Hardwire from tweetys.com
it does a lot more than surge protection, read on.

Since your tow vehicle is not a truck, you might want to consider the front storage box for those messy things you don't want to put in the trailer or tow vehicle.

If the surge protector Escape installs is the Progressive EMS-HW30C, it detects reverse polarity, under/over voltages, open ground, etc. It does not correct for low voltages like a autoformer, but just shuts down the power. I added one to my 17B and it has shut down the power to the trailer 3 times so far.

Yes Jon, that is the surge protector that escape using in my 19.
I had to get the alloy rims too! I have ordered the insulation pkg but not the spray foam. A friend in Santa Fe has a 17 and the insulation really works well for heat. So far he hasn't needed a/c.

So far the car seems really good. The basic SLE-1 model had all the options that we needed. The Arcadia is rated 5200 # while the Terrain is rated for 3500#, but EPA mileage is a little better. I had $3200 off for GM bucks, so it made sense to go with GM.

And finally our build has begun. Saw Jim's 19 at Eggscursion in April, purchased the Tow Vehicle 2 weeks later and ordered our Escape 19' on May 13th. Week 1 pictures to follow.[IMG][/IMG]
