Here are the lights Amazon.com: Qty 10- LED Lights- 5mm pre wired 12 volt leds- 12V Red: Automotive
and the switches http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and the little collars http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
First you remove the light from the cabinet by removing the 4 screws.
I drilled a small hole in the factory light where you want the led to shine, if you use the right size bit you may not need the collars. Insert the led and then locate a place for the switch, on the side. Carefully select the right size bit and drill that hole, install the switch. Connect the positive from the led to one switch wire and run the other switch wire to the positive feed to the lamp. ETI uses crimp connections and I find inserting the wire into the connection and using stickum to hold it there works. Repeat for the negative feed. Reinstall light and you are done.

The antenna is a Jensen short rubber mast, it is laying inside the upper cabinet behind the radio. If you do not want the blue tooth model you can get the antenna, speakers and radio as a set http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The bamboo floor was from Amazon. The one for the 21' is different than the one I installed in my 19'. The 19' were 2 pieces that I cut to fit, whereas the 21' was one that I trimmed to fit. Here is one Amazon.com - Seville Classics 27.95-Inch by 21.95-Inch Bamboo Floor Mat - Wood Bath Mat, notice it comes in 2 sizes. Here is the one for the 19 which you need 2 and cut. Amazon.com - Creative Bath Eco Styles Bath Mat, Bamboo - Bath Mat Wooden

I went to Amazon where you purchased the bamboo shower floor Jim. In the product description they say bamboo is not intended to be used in high moisture areas, so no to inside shower stalls. We used a washable carpet in our Casita that we removed during shower use, but would like to use something else in our Escape. Any suggestions out there for the shower floor?

Yeah, teak is one of the few woods that would work in a shower. I think they do have mats available, or making one would be real easy too.
