No the access door is on the side facing the main aisle, some people install them in both places, but if you are planning on doing a heater install then order only one door, facing the main aisle/nightstand.

Is this monitor to see who is at the door? Or battery level? Or... ? ? ?

Did not know LEDs are dimmable. That should make a nice ambiance.

Well this weekend's weather was so nice and I managed to make some more changes. I installed some plastic shelves in the microwave cabinet. Two difference sizes but I had to replace the electrical outlet cover to a smaller one to make them fit. In addition I had ordered the "warm" color LED's for the captain lights, really makes a difference. Installed a little wooden self unit by door, similar to one over the night stand. Bought a new "campfire style lamp" at our last cg, it has some type of animal horns. Got around to installing my Jensen am/fm/wb/ipod blue tooth radio. Attached are some pictures.

In the top picture of post 106 I'm showing 2 different lights. I had ETI prewire under the bed and they sent me 2 stock LED lights to install. I'm thinking of putting one in the bed area under the overhead cabinet, amidships and in stead use of one my "adjustable" lights that you turn a knob to adjust the LED light output. Can't make up my mind. I'm leaning toward using the ETI one in the visible area since it will match all the other ones and just using a regular non led under the bed since it will not be used much. Anyone want to purchase 2 adjustable LED lights, real cheap?

BlackJack now has "night lights" and under bed illumination. I also switched out the stove vent light to led and moved the lamp so it points down.

Here is another view of the "warm" captain light bulb switch. In addition I'm a weather nut and I have one of the weather prognosticators that allows you to pick up the local weather as you travel. It picks up the closest Accuweather forecast for your area.

Nice add-ons. Very much liking that weather station and the radio.
