We would
add an outside shower
a bathroom window
electric bathroom vent
inside switches for the outside lights
inside switch for the extra reefer fans
transfer switch for the inverter (instead of a couple of wired outlets)
Turn the stove 90 degrees (burners front to back instead of side by side) and put in a deeper wider sink.
Electric front jack

Would like to move the pump switch/tank level panel from over the stove to over the sink, where I might actually notice I left the pump on (again).

We always leave the pump on while we are camping. Why would you want to turn it off? That seems inconvenient.

I keep leaving it on when we stop somewhere and use it. If it was right in my face as I exited the RR it might help me remember.

The standard window in the 21 is a slider in the kitchen, fairly large. The awning window is about 50% smaller, but has the advantage of being used while raining.

I just leave mine open Jim. The kitchen area is well sealed off from moisture so I haven't had a problem as long as I was on top of sideways rain that might overwhelm.

I do have the bathroom window too, so I don't rely on the kitchen for venting.
