John, When I was doing the build list for my 5.0TA, I asked that question of ETI via email. They sent me a diagram showing the location of the standard outlets (120v and 12v) and the walls that could be reinforced. It was good to have for reference.

None come reinforced by default, you can however get some done if you so desire. It could prove advantageous if you want to hang your own shelves, tv, and so forth at a later date. The walls you can get done are model specific, you can get a floorplan from ETI that shows such along with the default electrical locations. I only have the one for the fifth wheel.

On edit: Carl beat me to it...

Thanks for the input, I just sent an e-mail to ETI requesting info on this. Thank you all.

We had two walls reinforced Jake, because we planned to add a TV mount and other items which would require additional support. Just remember that reinforcing the walls means adding plywood underneath - and plywood is heavy.

I wasn't sure where I wanted the TV or how I wanted to mount it. I had 2 walls reinforced to cover any possibility.

We weren't sure if we wanted the hanging closet or shelves, so we had the two closet walls reinforced so we could add shelves if we changed our minds, (we did).

"Reinforced " ,in our trailer, is plywood squares placed in the gaps in the top 2/3 (a little less ) of the wall selected. The frame and panel construction remains the same just filler to screw into.

Without it there is pine around the edges and 1/8" oak paper covered softwood panel.
