17B owners - your thoughts on...

1. Do you have a 2 or 3-burner stove? Loss of counter space with 3-burner? Would you do differently if reordering (2 to 3 or 3 to 2)?

2. If you have the jack antennae - where is your tv mount located? Where is the interior cable for connecting to tv?

3. If you have the stereo/dvd player - how is it wired to the tv?

We took the 3 burner as ther is more separation between the large burner and the front small burner, allows a 12" frypan and an 8" pot to be on the stove at the same time. Gained workspace by trimming a plastic cutting board such that it just fits in the cabinet below the sink. I glued four small pieces of cutting board on the underside of the main board piece such that it just fits into the sink, stabalizing the cutting board and turning the sink into a meal prep space.

I don't think the two-burner stove takes up much less usable counter space than the three-burner. I also don't think I've ever used all three burners and rarely use two. Mostly cook outside with a BBQ and two one-burner butane stoves.

My house had a Jenn-Air two-burner stove (plus grill) when I moved in 35+ years ago. This will never do was my first thought so I went out and bought a plug-in burner...used it twice in all those years. One can always make do with two burners.

We have the three burner stove but would do just fine with two. We do miss an oven though, and will be getting one in our forthcoming 19. Of course the oven only comes with a three burner cooktop...

Yup. Need photos. How is that different than the sink cover that comes with the trailer? Or, do you mean the cutting board fits over the stove burners?

Two burners here which are fine for me. Both gas knobs show some degree of melting, I'm assuming a large pan covered the knobs causing the damage. I bought my 2015 17B used.

I have the standard position 2 burner stove, and wouldn't want anything larger (I'm ordering an oven in my 21, so I will have a 3 burner stove in it). I rarely use the stove, preferring to cook outside on a combined grill/1 burner Coleman. The only time I use the inside stove is when weather prevents cooking outdoors.

1, I opted and paid extra for a 3 burner stove top and have yet to use it, even once, so I wouldn't recommend the upgrade. We do all our camping during the warm season so BBQing is our usual practice.
2. We've got the power antenna. I would recommend placing the TV, the power cable input, and the interior cable all together to eliminate exposed cords on the drivers side rear bed.
3. no interior stereo or DVD player. Our stereo is a portable DeWALT shop radio with AC/DC, a battery charger and a low volume control.
