In addition each build may require a slight change, all at ETI's discretion.

Craig, could you post pictures showing your battery location? Did you request them in the rear corner? seems like a better location to me. In talking with ETI today I was told the batteries would be in the pass. side rear dinette! Kevin

Because they're in a sealed battery box and there's a vent to the outside, placement of the batteries may depend on that and where the running lights and awning arm are on the exterior.

Thanks Craig, pics are very helpful. Do you have 2 solar panels on the roof? Also is the battery switch a standard item? That looks good also. Kevin

I have 2 160 watt solar panels. The battery switch installed by ETI is a toggle mounted near the converter/power center. What you see in the photo to the right of the batteries….is my "after market" solar controller and inverter, the red battery switch you see only shuts off the power comming from the solar panel to the controller.

Looks like they put the dual 6V batteries under the rear dinette cushion (u-shape dinette) vs. the curbside side dinette cushion. That makes for more storage. The rear cushion storage access is fairly difficult. Glad to see the change there.
