Robert,
Interesting that you were able to get the toilet shut off valve. I was told "not possible on the 19". Maybe it has to do with your floor flush model?

Hey Robert,
Just wondering why you went to the 19? You seemed to have your mind pretty fixed on the 17?

I worked with Reace on this request for mine. You cannot put a toilet shut off in a 19' because the toilet is too close to the wall, what we had installed is a cold water shut off to the bathroom, the valve is located under the bed and shuts off all the cold water to the bathroom I am sure this is what Robert had installed.

Thanks, Robert, and we thought we were finished with our build sheet :-)
Our 19 build sheet is due Nov. 1 for a Jan. 27 finish date. We won't pick it up until March though.

Yessir, you are correct.

Yeah Chapi, we were set on the 17. But, nothing beats spending a little time in each one to make sure.
The bed was the biggest factor. 60" wide vs 49". Once we were actually in the trailer, we knew. We pretty much decided to switch before I went to ETI, after Steve and Cynthia let us look at their 19 here in San Antonio. And, as I mentioned before, ETI was nice enough to let us keep our original build date, and we had already sent enough fabric for either model.

I also like the tandem axles, and of course there is a larger dinette, but like I say, it was mainly the bed.

The MaxxFan line has
  • standard (no hood) and deluxe (with hood) versions
  • smoked or white tops (in both standard and deluxe versions)
  • manual opening and powered & remote control versions
That's eight combinations.

This suggests that the standard equipment from ETI would be a Deluxe model of MaxxFan, presumably manual opening, maybe white: MaxxFan Deluxe (Manual Opening) Right?

Jim, I think you're saying that the optional choice from ETI is a different Deluxe MaxxFan: MaxxFan Deluxe (Remote Opening) Right?

It appears that no Escape (standard equipment or with options) has the Standard (no rain hood) MaxxFan (manual or power/remote).

Thanks for the info. I don't know why the option doesn't appear in the ETI list for any model. I don't know why the smoked cover would only be available from ETI with the power/remote version, or why the power/remote version would only be available from ETI in smoked.

I'll try to enlighten you Brian, the stock install is the deluxe MaxxFan with translucent cover which is manually opened/closed with 10 speeds. This is the one I had on my 19' Escape. I ordered from the MaxxFan factory a smoke lens and installed such on my 19', the original cover I still have. The cost of the smoke upgrade was $80 plus shipping. When ordering BlackJack I inquired about the MaxxFan remote model which came with the smoke lens, Reace said it would be $100. I added that to my build list and it also has the remote, motorized opening cover and everything else the deluxe model has. The standard models are like the Fantastic Fans and do not operate in the rain without optional covers. See here for the 2 different types: Airxcel | Maxxair | Maxxfan

Thanks for the confirmation, Jim, and the addition of the smoked cover price. Your smoked cover was an additional part; choosing smoked instead of white might not cost anything additional. Your link is the one which I previously posted.
