Yes, one on both sides and one up front.....three exterior lights?
I plan on being in places that'll be well below freezing and up to 112F-115F also and we want to be comfortable in our retirement. We plan to full time at least for a couple years after we retire so we have to make this trailer as comfortable as possible. I'd rather just get it all done at the factory. So I have a few.......OK, a lot....of questions for you and the others that have some real fiberglass experience.
I've read concerns about UV damage to the gelcoat over time. Is there a brand of protectant or coating that will guard against this more than another brand? I'm kind of anal about my vehices looking better than most others but the products I use on my motorcycles, cars and trucks can't be used on plastic or fiberglass. I'd think the fiberglass protectants have a UV or SPF protectant rating the same as other products.....which one is closest to 100%?
Are the Escape trailers a true gelcoat or are they a filon fiberglass?
Hoakie, Alf, anybody else with a 5.0......do I need a Maxx Fan over the bed or is the stock "vent" enough?
We will be plugged in when we're hosting however, when we're not hosting we'll be doing a lot of boondocking far from civilization. Being technology challeneged.....should I be looking for AC tv or 12V (we will have the solor panel from the factory)?
Also (I'm sure we're not the only two) we have no common interest in our TV programs so we plan on two TVs using headphones. Would it be practical to have one mounted over the stairs where Alf has his (on a swivel braket) and one on the shower wall? They'd pretty much be side by side in that configuration. Or should we have one over the dinette area (and fight over whose going to sit up and watch TV......we both like to watch TV until we get sleepy. At our age, sometimes that's nearly all night long for one or the other of us).
Being technology challenged and knowing that we plan on doing an equal amount of being plugged in as well as boondocking and needing headphone jacks in the TV as well as needing to be mounted on swivel wall mounts, is this a good candidate to fit our needs? http://www.jensenrvdirect.com/jensen...stand-407.html
