Help with 19' build

I am trying to finalize my build for a 19' escape. Below is an image with my selected options. Please review and let me know if there are other options I should consider.

Thank you!

additional 12v drops in cabinets for interior LED lighting?

outside hatch?? (no idea on that one)

heating pads for tanks are generally not popular here, but if you get the under foam, you lose your chance to install later on. --- Also any third party tank monitoring system.


Looks like you have a great trailer coming!

I see you're getting the three burner stove. Have you seen a picture of the 19' with this stove? You are going to have almost zero counter space if that's important to you. I've only seen the two burner in a 19'. I love the fact I had the two burner in Ten Forward changed to portrait. I wanted to gain back as much counter space as I could. Needed a place for a water pitcher and Mr. Coffee... YMMV

You've got a much of nice options!

I will think about the stove. Thanks for input! Very valid point.

That looks pretty complete. As for the heat pads, it depends on how late or early in the season you will be out and if you are plugged in. And have you noticed the latest currency exchange rate? Loren

Some buyers have added a light centrally over the dining room table. Although the current lights are ok, a central light would definitely be an improvement.

I had a senior moment there, but now I remember what I was going to ask. Two way hot water tank? Loren

Is this in the roof? What is the cost? I think it might be good option, eyes are getting older too!
