Black Water Tank E19

Just looking at a pic inside the driver's dinette from another owner of a 2nd Gen E19. What I saw was a removable plate on the top plywood cover of the black water tank box. On my tank plywood box there is only the solid piece of plywood with the corner tank vent pipe exiting. My question is has ETI placed an inspection cover on some tanks and not others?

I also saw that some controllers, inverters were attached to plywood cover. Is there safe clearance between the plywood and black water tank in case screw tips penetrate plywood thickness.

On both of mine the plywood was solid w/no inspection hole, probably an owner change to verify thickness when installing items. Yes one has to be aware of what is underneath anything in an Escape trailer.

if you mean 1/2” as safe clearance then yes. The Ply is 1/2”

Must be a reason, can someone take a picture of the access panel and open also?

I noticed that access panel on the new 19 videos . I was wondering if it was for tank monitor repair
