Where are you getting those nice metal outlet covers? I like those, also did you eliminate the heater switch with just an outlet? Can't tell. is there flanges on side to keep accidental on/off to a minimum?

Lowes has them they are not pricey pretty basic but I like the look better then the ultra white look at me covers and outlets. No I just changed the switch to a deco one that is also lighted, yes the flanges will prevent accidental on / off. I changed out two of the original metal boxes with deeper ones to fit the USB outlets.

Those are not only super cool looking but very practical with the USB. Unless I can persuade ETI to put them in they will likely be a first mod. Did you paint your heater vent black?

Yes I did paint the , ETI heater black, the Aux Electric one CPAHarley put in and changed out the outlets to Deco style had to order the USB ones if you want the part numbers let me know. ETI will have to use deeper then the ones they normally use to facilitate the install of the USB style outlet as they are fairly deep.

Yes please; part numbers and type of hi-temp paint on vent. Looks gloss-or is that just the flash? Also like that towel rack- Lowe's also?

Feel like a pregnant mom nesting, waiting for the chick to hatch...got a word document going with all the stuff I need/want before heading up to ETI end of September. At this rate we may be towing a one-way uhaul(-;

I just used Rust-Oleum Gloss Black on my heater vent. I was not concerned about it being a high-temp paint.

Cypher,

No problem, I also have the original hot water heater plate I made a new one the switches just pop out. When Fishbio decides which she wants done I will bring it along so no drilling required.

Cypher - I like the lighted rocker switch you swapped out for your water heater propane switch. Do you know where you got it? I know I can get a whole replacement switch at Store | Little House Customs, but if I can just pop out the rocker switch and pop in a lighted one, I'd rather do that.
