Fonts... My go to site for fonts is font squirrel. There are many sites though. Not sure what file type the ETI graphics place requires though. You could also get it done locally after sale.


Outlet by sink.... Depending on what you mean for placement, just use a stubby extension cord.


Consider an extension table off the end of counter by sink, I use mine often. Some one can point you to a pic.

I thought "exterior" was an auto correct typo. So now I have to ask is there only one standard exterior hatch? Under the bed? And there is nowhere to put another and increase storage accessibility from outside?

Thanks Jim

Hi Bruce
We are making our own counter extensions or flip up tables. We are bringing them all with us to pick up as we always travel with a cordless drill and a small tool box. We will get them installed on our long trip home.

Are they going to match the rest of the counter, like ETI install?

Has any one added a 120 volt outlet to the left of the sink? Does it get much use there?


Thanks

For a long stay in Big Bend I needed to power phones and chargers galore, so I added an additional 120 volt outlet under the side dinette seat for those chargers that never needed attention but would otherwise have added to clutter underfoot. I don't know if Escape will do that for you but I am really glad I put in the effort.

We added one towards the back, street side (same side as the one under the bed). Haven't used it yet, because I want to partition that cubby first, so anything stashed in there won't get tangled with our electric cord (you won't have that problem) OR bump into the water pump.

Kinda wish we'd had one put towards the back on the curb side, too; even though the batteries are in that compartment, there's storage for other things, and it's a pain to access if our dinette is being used as a bed (happens on occasion).

I think that one would be able to use the hair dryer there and be use the bathroom mirror at the same time with the door open.
Yes to that extra access door. I stash my "overnight" bag in there, which makes it super handy while I'm taming my hair, etc., with the bath door open so I can use the mirror with plenty of elbow room and fairly decent light.

That's a good idea for an extra outlet placement (or you could even move the one in the galley center), but I like Jim's suggestion to put the extra outlet beneath the bed, between the two accesss doors that you will have. YMMV.

Yes Glen the flip ups will match the ones ETI puts in. I don't much like T mold and may make them out of Baltic birch so I don't have to use the T molding which would mean that the edge would be different but I would still be able to put a slight round over on it. For sure I'll use the same laminate.

Did a dinette table out of "Baltic birch". It was a shelf in the cabinet over our fridge at home and is much better quality than home depot. It is plywood though, and while some like the look of the edge, the cheaper stuff will have a lot of voids. We did have ETI put T-mold on and it serves as a bumper when the fridge door hits it or your dinette table swings into a flip up with that great range of motion with the Springfield pedestal.
