Light over dinette in a 19?

Somewhere on one of these threads someone installed a ceiling c light centered over the dinette on a 19. Does anyone remember where I can find that thread?

maybe not, I just checked and did not see one. I'm getting a captain light installed on the shelf over the dinette but do not see one in the ceiling.

I apologize, I thought you were getting the newer model and confused your 2016 trailer with the 2017 models. Sorry. Still not sure if it is standard in the 2017 models either, have to ask myself.

light

Also I was told the small led lights are standard in the 21 over the bed .I was going to have ETI put a 12 v wire up there but they said it's standard on the 2017's?
2017 items that are now standard
1-Flat door with screen door (Much better design for replacement or to fix ) The classic look a lot better IMHO
2-S/S sink and faucet
3-bathroom medicine cabinet
4-LED light now standard although I think that started in 2014?
5-Different awning (Remains to be seen how it holds up ?)
6-better insulated windows that open on bottom for better ventilation Hehr windows
7-more outside lights ?
8- more options then before

9- $4000 cd more dollars but only $3100 US as of today

Let me know if I missed some

Heck, I did a whole write-up on installing mine and for the life of me I can't find it.

Definitely worth doing, it's our # 1 light for usage.

RickM started a thread in 2012 with his installation - Adding a Ceiling Light to the Escape 19 - and Ron showed his in that thread starting at post #28.

Thanks Brian, I wondered where it was hiding.

I still think it was one of the most worthwhile mods. We use it more than any other light.

And for what it is worth, I described adding one to a 17 on my Trailer Modifications page 2014. If you have a trailer built before they added them, it is a worth wild modification.
