Does a GFI outlet not come standard with the trailer? Our trailer came with one on the end of the galley and we did not order it extra.
Maybe because of the exterior outlet and proximity to the sink one is required?

Good question. I'll ask when we finalize the build sheet. Many of these things come out in the wash.

US Codes require the GFI at the end of the wire run; might be the same in Canada these days.

Our external 120V outlet next to the rear storage hatch is a GFCI. I suspect that all 120V outlets are supported by it. We had a 12V outlet put next to it for boon docking (and for a little compressor to inflate the tires when necessary).

I would call it the beginning of the run as it covers all of the other outlets down the line. Our 15 has two because our wiring is on two separate runs, one on the outside and one in the sink area.

Donna, we are considering the same sink and have a couple of questions if you don't mind. 1) The sink appears to only be available with 2 holes. Assuming you used a single-hole faucet, what did you put in the second hole? A soap dispenser? 2) Also assuming the single-hole faucet, did you install the type with a pull-out spray? If so, how did you (or Reace) handle the extra length of flex hose? 3) Did Reace have any comments or suggestions - like "never again" or "piece of cake"?

Thanks!
Alan

So far it looks like we'll add the extra insulation/thermal windows, the 2 way hot water heater, and go with the equalizer hitch.

So, the newest options sheet:

2 Burner Stainless Stove/Hood - (turned sideways to max counter space)
4.3 CF Fridge
A/C
Digital thermostat
Dual 6V Batts
Dual Propane Package
Equalizer Hitch
2 way hot water tank
Microwave (we can live with white I guess)
Bathroom window
Storage Box
Stainless Sink
Prewire for stereo
Prewire for solar
Thermal windows/insulation
TV Antenna w/power amplifier

any input on:

High lift axle - pros/cons?
Water filter - assuming it's an inline cartridge type?
Is the screen room worth the $400.00 price tag?

You have to have your awning in it's highest position to use the screen room, something that is not always desirable. All Escapes now have the same axle. Water filter i can be purchased at wallyworld.

Got mosquitoes? Got horse flies or deer flies, wasps, hornets?
It's well made with quality materials.
That said, I've only used mine a couple times.
It is fastened to the trailer at the awning and with snaps to the trailer itself.
