Drilled hole for power pedestal, has 2 x15amp outlets and 2x USB ports. Also notched the bottom curb side cushion so that it will fit flat against the wall.

Someone asked about the new lights, they have no bulbs but a light strip, very bright and the cover just snaps bob and on.....installed new shelf and spice rack.

Ah, yah, the good old 2e with dual disk drives Did a ton of stuff with them. The hardware we have now was just a distant dream then.

Neat installation and a very handy location. Much better than trying to reach down and use the one on the face of the dinette seat.

I'll be interested to hear how your heater works out in that location. I've considered that location but haven't permanently installed one yet.

The heater is a Broan 750/1500 watt wall heater, I have installed this model in both of my prior Escapes. When hooked up this heater will keep the trailer warm without making it too hot. You have a choice of keeping it 1500 or disconnecting one grid and making it 750 watts, which is what I did. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

In the 21 Escape I mounted it right next to the bath door for heat in the bath, here in the 19 it is opposite the bath door, how much goes into the bath is yet to be determined. I have thought of tapping into the heater vent which runs behind the bath wall, perhaps in the future.
