Jim, you mention an insulated door and window in your build sheet. I take it from this that ordering the extra insulation and windows doesn't include the door? Did they agree to this, and what did they charge? Did they let you know what it would look like? When is your trailer scheduled for delivery?

Yes, all the doors are standard insulated, I specifically asked for it in the new build since my 2012 Escape19 did not have it, it just had the double pane thermal window.

Reading these build sheets is making me rethink the Group 29 battery thing and I'm searching with limited success for threads where it is compared to the two 6 volt. We'll have the larger frig and tend to stay in national parks with no hookups for up to two weeks. We'll also have the solar panel and we can be frugal with electrical use -- Any thoughts?

Ruthe,
Check out post #6 in Standard Battery with Solar. It gives amp hours of standard 12 volt, Group 29 12 volt and 2 - 6 volts.
