Do you have stock in those suction cup "do jobbies", or something.

But, nonetheless a good idea.

Re: TV Option

Back to AC and DC. I know nothing electrical, but I do know that I plug my laptop into AC outlet to charge it and that works when I have shore power and when I only have the battery. So, there is an inverter, although I could have the term wrong.

Re: TV Option

Glen, it sure sounds like you must have an inverter if you can plug your laptop in when not hooked to the grid. You bought new from Escape, didn't you?

Re: TV Option


Yes. Mine was new from Escape. Might just dig out the instruction manual so I know what the heck I'm talking about.

Re: TV Option

From the escape site on the "standard equipment" for the 17" it says that it has a 45 amp converter/battery charger..
I "think" we had an inverter a 300w(??)one in our Boler--but it seems to me that the "newer" trailers all had converters.....

Or am I just plain confused now

Re: TV Option

It does all get confusing, but I believe.....
A converter goes from 120V AC to 12V DC.
An inverter goes from 12V DC to 120V AC.

Wheither it's magnetic or not stands to be seen. Depending on the composition of some stainless, it may or may not. I hope it is. Heh Alf, will your's hold a magnet?
Thanks for the information. I am wondering if I should do something similar (although I am getting the window over the sink option), to keep the area easier and safer to clean. I don't think an extended backsplash made out of the countertop material is available. ,
I was trying to think of something that is practical.

Re: TV Option

Hi Sandra
I think the vinyl wall covering should be fairly easy to keep clean
as it is none porous.
