Mods to Rubicon

I put this list of mods together for another forum member so figured I would share it here. The trailer is a 2010 19 that was bought used so we worked with what we got, but have made it even more enjoyable and capable than stock. The nice thing is that ETI listens to its customers and new Escapes either have most of these things stock now or available as an option.

-Added bath window (available as an option from ETI)
Bathroom Window Add-on

-Recessed medicine cabinet (the new 19 comes with a stock version over the toilet)
Bathroom Medicine Cabinet Retrofit

-Electrical Management System (can be ordered from ETI as optional "Surge Protector")
Power line monitor?

-Recessed Dickinson Marine stove (depending on model this can now be installed if sent to ETI)
New Stove Install

-Adhesive back splash (not an option, but an easy DIY for around $100)
Backsplash

-Under bed storage drawer (not an option, but a worthy DIY if you are handy)
Storage solutions for 19'

-Bath fan upgrade (this is now stock from ETI)
Adding The Power Bathroom Vent to a 17B

-Galley retractable receptacle
Galley retractable receptacle

-SAM-1 range hood upgrade (not an ETI option but highly recommended)
Range Hood

-Exterior 12V outlet (available ETI option)
Added exterior 12V outlet

-WFCO converter upgrade with WildKat main board (this is a DIY but depending on your style of camping this might be worthwhile)
Progressive Dynamics 14.8v Charging Rate

-Fujitsu mini-split heat pump
This provides quiet cooling, dehumidifying and heating.
Custom Air Conditioning Retrofit
