Question for owner of a recent 17B

I have a 17B on order and I'm looking for some help finding a location for a 120v outlet in the kitchen area. It's hard to know what locations might be possible, without actually seeing one.
If you have a recent one and can give me some ideas I'd greatly appreciate it.

Walt

Walt, have you contacted ETI to get the diagram showing where all the standard locations for all the various outlets are? Having it makes a good starting point for knowing where you might put additional ones or ask for the standard ones to be moved.

Attached is a photo from our new 17B, under the kitchen counter extension. We also elected to put in an additional 12v/USB plug-in, which you just see hiding behind the vertical cushion. It allows us to charge our phones at night time.

We have a 17B with a plug under the counter extension as shown in the picture already posted. I use a short 3 prong flat plug extension cord in that outlet so the counter extension can be down and you can still access a plug. When not being used, the extension cord just dangles between the bench and the front of the kitchen cabinet.

Also the solar display (if you get solar) have a USB outlet above the sink.

I just picked up my 17B and I had an extra plug put on the front of the lower cabinets just below the countertop. I had this in my last trailer and found it worked well. I believe ETI said that was really the only place they could put an additional plug in the kitchen.
