Shelves in closet - are these removable or fixed in place? Anybody know the height of the closet without shelves in place?

Counter extensions - I'm thinking one by the sink and one on the drawer stack and none in the dinette. Not really asking a question here just made asking for an opinion.

Inverter - not planning on getting the microwave and can't think of a reason to add the inverter since almost everything else will be 12V. But our laptops need 120VAC to charge (does anybody make a 12v charger for Macbook Pros?). Hate to spend $550 for that but it's always good to have options and it would be difficult to add later I suppose. I do have a small 400 watt portable inverter that would probably handle the charging task.

Wireless temp gauge for fridge $32. Sounds like a good idea so you can check temp without opening fridge but is it decent or should I shop around?

That's about it except for formica, fabric and flooring. Still trying to decide on those items.

Been in weather up to 100F lately with two-door 2015 refrigerator working fine. No fans. Have the one Ross showed but have not used it.

We use the closet for shirts and jackets, no shelves, and really like it that way.

We have the counter extension at the drawer stack. We usually do not use it with both staying in the trailer but when only one is in the Escape, the extra counter works well.

An inverter, at least 1500w, can be used for a hairdryer and some other items but you may not need it.

We don't have a wireless gauge and that would be good to get.

We got one closet shelf 10 inches from the bottom and wish we had gotten one more another 10 inches up. As for spacing, they will place it where you want it. Loren

My understanding from ETI is that the $21 fridge fan is just a little fan that sits inside the fridge to circulate the cold air throughout the inside of the fridge to help keep all areas inside the fridge at the same temperature. I'm sure other fans can be bought off the web, but we figure ETI has settled on a pretty good one, so if we decide to get one (waiting to here reports back on the new fridge once it's out there), we'll probably just go with ETI's.

From post #98 on the thread on the new 2nd Gen 2017 21' trailer:

"Cabinet under the microwave cabinet: 17.75 side (doesn't have hinges on both sides) by 34" high by 23" deep"

The photo is flipped sideways, so it's kind of hard to figure out exactly what all is being shown. Measurement doesn't include the door latch/hinge as I wanted to know the size for shoving a solid object inside each cabinet.

ETI is going to add 2 shelves in that cabinet for us, equidistant from each other. Any clothes that needs hanging will go on the coat hook that will be attached on the bathroom wall above the bed. Which means coats as nothing else needs to be hung up.

I was asked what spacing I wanted for the two shelves that were added to the cabinet in my trailer; I assume that still applies as a buyer's choice.

We have the same Accurite wireless thermometer set and find it works well, even from the trailer to our TV while traveling. We use lithium batteries in the sensor that goes in the freezer so it can handle the cold.

Hi Donna,

Do you have any photos of your dinette table you can share. I too don't use the stock table since we eat outside. However, a small counter space in the dining area is nice for snacks and a drink (beer bottle).

No, Rich I don't. But I'll be going over later today and can take a few. Remember, I don't have a dinette table. Just the two Stooge tables. Is that what you want to see?
