We also got the 5 aluminum wheels for rotation purposes.
That's been changed Ian. They do now install a toilet shut off valve on the 19. Its under the driver side dinette bench directly behind the toilet. When I asked to have the cold water shutoff installed similar to yours, I was informed they could do a shutoff just for the toilet in the new location.

Cool, guess I have to wait to see what mine has

I have a light on the drivers side to aid with nighttime hookups and exterior showers. That is in addition to the front light for getting hitched in the dark, and the standard street side light. All can be switched on/off from a switch inside the trailer.

Top switch turns the light inside on the ceiling right inside the door. Middle switch turns on the porch light. Bottom switch turns on all the other outside lights (under loft, drivers side, back (added option). Hitting the middle switch and bottom switch turns on all lights all the way around Ten Forward (landing strip!). As a single traveler, I consider the exterior lighting to be a matter of safety. YMMV

Is this the standard configuration for switches?

Escape will instal a dimable, remote controlled LED string of lights under the awning that you may want to consider.

No. I asked for these as an option. Kim... now Crystal helped me during the "build sheet" days. Someplace there's got to be a "three switch at the door" template at ETI. If you're interested, ask ETI for it... if they don't know what you're talking about... just say you want the same switch configuration at the door that Donna D. got Just make certain you have all exterior LEDs and got that extra lamp at the rear of the trailer.

So glad we have those 3 switches; thank you Donna! The other non listed options we're so glad we have are the electric tongue jack, the led hot water heater light, toilet shut-off valve, foot-flush toilet, and front & rear outside lights.

Standard switch config on mine was just the one for the outside porch light. There's a notation and charge on my build sheet for the interior light switch and the one for the drivers side light switch. I believe the primary purpose of the one on the drivers side is for working with the utilities, hooking up the electric, dumping holding tanks and so forth.
