We couldn't make up our minds so we put TV swing arms in two locations, one in the dinette and one on the wardrobe. The swing arms we mounted allows our 23" TV to be viewed from both the front and back of the trailer, although the passenger side dinette has issues with the wardrobe location. We had ports for the Jack antenna, Cable TV, and AC outlets installed at both locations. The TV is easily relocated using the swing arms we chose, and the DVD player is no issue either. It works at home, we'll see on the road.

Jim, could you expand on the LED lights? How do you control the kitchen overhead lights? Put in a switch or . . .? Also on the cubby hole lighting, looks like one string, correct? Did you happen to take any pictures of the installation, especially of the cubby hole?

They are battery operated, control is in overhead. The cubby hole, you remove the caps and there are screws holding each cubby, 4 each. If you remove only one side, left or right, you have some wiggle room to pass the wire down from the top, there are no barriers between to prevent easy install. Just do not remove more than 3 screws, the cubbies are only plastic and flimsy while free hanging…...

Now that it is finally above freezing, I have about 90 days of planned modifications to do in the next 30 days before the first extended trip in April. Now where do I begin...

I, for one, would be interested in a list. Your modifications are a good source of ideas.

Running a 12v line either from the battery inside or the 12v outlet overhead to the kitchen side cabinet by the door and adding a 12v monitor and a switch to outside step light. Installing my Jensen am/fm weather radio with blue tooth speakers, installing 2 lights under the bed, installing 2 led dimmable lights over the kitchen area, adding red led to bathroom for nightlight, adding coiled breakaway wire and 2 coiled safety chains, 7 way plug protector/holder, tire cover install. Installing gutters along the roof line for water run off.
This is a start.

Broan heater install

Jim

Did you have ETI leave out an access door under your bed where you installed your Broan electric heater? I have seen some pictures on some others where there is a door there. Thanks again.
