I wish Escape Trailer Industries could....

Install an electric outlet right under the front window above the table on the front wall in the 19' or 17' front dinette models. Ease of use would result. The stock one under the seat is awkward with those who know Arthur Ites.
Also insulate the door if you order the extra insulation package. It feels colder compared to the rest of the interior. Perhaps spray foam between the inner and out panels would help.

Any other suggestions for the factory you can think of

never in doubt, often wrong

Re: I wish Escape Trailer Industries could....

I had an outlet installed under our front window, in the dinette seat out of the way, along with a DC and coax outlet. I did think the AC outlet was standard though. One could likely be mounted in the shelf above the window too, but then cords would be in the way. Really have only used it for the laptop though, as we don't have many things to plug in.

I had suggested to Reace that the fridge come stocked with beer, but alas, I had to do so myself.

x2 on the electric outlet. I could even live with it on the angled wood near the floor, if there was enough room. Something to look into over a week-end!

Re: I wish Escape Trailer Industries could....

As Jim B says, there is an AC outlet under the table on the wall below the cushions. We added two 12V outlets there although I know the 19 now has at least one standard 12V somewhere. I would not add any outlets above the table as the cords would be in the way, as Jim mentioned, and the outlets would not be hidden as they are now.

Re: I wish Escape Trailer Industries could....

I have both a 120v & a 12v receptacle on the front facing side of the closet just below the countertop. They are easy to reach when using the table, and are both handy for plugging chargers, etc. I've added one of these, although mine does not have surge protection. It is probably my most used receptacle...
