So I finally got around to several modifications.
I had originally intended to do a lot of these on our 5000 mile maiden voyage home in th "Full Quiver".
What a laugh! No time to do anything but drive and learn systems.http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/at...1&d=1568469148
Lagun table mount,battery monitor, and 12 volt fan replacing a factory installed captains light.

More mods to our 2019 Escape 19

Last comes an idea from the forums with a simple stainless push through lock, not very secure, but we are just talking about PVC fence post and caps (5"x5")

No harm, no foul. Not many Escapes around DELMARVAPA- Are you planning on attending any rallies?

Would love to, we are still learning where they are.
I am still pre retirement so have limited vacation, but we are looking for one close enough and with the right timing. Is there a thread that shows all the Rallies?

I looked at current draw of the different Maradyne fans and opted for lower , it is very nice and pushes loads of air even on low.

Marine stores carry lots of 12V fans. West Marine usually has a display of all their fans with switches so you can turn them on to feel the air movement. We personally like the Caframo.

Love the mods, and - slightly off the "mod" topic - where did you get that nice looking ladder?!

Fan noise

Not too bad.
I like a little white noise at night and when combined with the Fantastic fan, it is a good balance.
Certainly much quieter than the AC fan! especially on low.
It really helps with overall circulation as well.
