OK, this was good. I'm still trying to find my way around the Forum. Thanks so much jamman!

Oh, I love it -- starting to actually feel what it is like inside. And great to see the solar panel. Very cool name, also!
Thank you, ksitte!

EDarby, ETI installs a larger solar panel now. You can see this 160-watt panel in this photo (taken at Idaho's City of Rocks NR). Other options visible in this view include the the high-lift axle, "air-conditioner ready", additional LED brake lights, front storage box and (barely visible on the back bumper) dual 6-volt batteries and bike-rack-ready.

Great shot and great information. Do you think you will get the air conditioner? Also, do you think it's worth the money to get the front storage box? I read somewhere in the forum that in the 17', some equipment sits in the box and takes up room
Thanks for much for posting!

Hi Ellen,
All I can say I ordered my 19 footer without the front storage box and now i could kick myself for not ordering one. There's are things like the wet dirty RV mat that you don't want to store in your vehicle or your trailer and I think that the front storeage box would be the ideal spot for thing like that.

Good to know. I actually do not even know yet all the things I will be needing for the different systems that are better stored outside the trailer.
Thanks, Mark!

Question Black streaking from rubber window seals

Does anyone have a cure for the constant streaking coming down from the black window seals.

Looking closely, we have black streaking coming down all over, not only below windows. This has been mentioned by someone else who thought it was acid rain or the like and that seems to be the case. We can wash the Escape and immediately have streaks from the roof when it appeared the roof was clean. Not impossible that the roof is just not getting completely clean and dirt is still coming off of there.
