I think that someone was told that the table is actually supposed to be put down in place for a bed when traveling. We did not and it was fine. We kept it from moving back and forth.

Escape delivers the trailers to Sumas with the table up. We left it up when towing also and never had a problem. I suppose with the front to back slide we could secure it with a bungee cord but we haven't had any issues without it.

Love the bold fabric, we used a similar Jonny bahama pattern, and went with a butter colored Formica. We have a 2014 19, with solar, inverter, extra insulation, extra windows and standard dinette. The standard table is barely large enough as it is. The U shaped diner was too small for the two of us to use for much. Defiantly go with three burner stove, think about the oven, we miss having one. Our solar keeps the trailer constantly at full power, we boondocks mostly. Wouldn't have bought the microwave if I did it again since only works when plugged in.

Kam,
Try your microwave on the inverter sometime. If you have the 1500W inverter, it should power the modest microwave fine, assuming yours is wired the same as ours. We use our microwave whenever we stop mid-day or boondock.

Thanks Bill, that's what I thought I could do when we bought it. Not sure how to turn inverter on, thought was always on. But the 110 sockets don't work when we aren't connected to land line. The 12 volts do. We got the USB ports under the table as well to charge smart phones. The microwave wasn't on even when we plugged in at our brothers right after picking up. Will investigate. Thanks!

You should see a push button in the front of the drivers side bench. Push that to turn on inverter.

I really like your fabric, too! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Ok we figured it out. We have 600 watt inverter, and it is turned on with a switch under the drivers side bench. It does not stick out into the cabin, but rather is under the seat. We turned it on and the microwave worked! Thanks to you folks for helping us figure out how the darn thing worked. Cheers
