The fridge goes "woosh" ? Do you mean the hot water tank? Never heard the fridge go woosh. And the hot water tank isn't on overnight so all's quiet except for the furnace of heater sometimes. I like the light from the fridge, perfect night light.

We got captains lights on both sides as we weren’t sure which way we would sleep in our 19. After trying it both ways we prefer heads on passenger side, in part because we also had a stooge table installed on the fridge (driver side) wall (Escape wouldn’t put one on the passenger side) and we put small stuff on it at night, phone, book, CPAP etc. The captains lights provide very nice indirect light if you aim them at the walls/corners, and we use them regularly all round the bed.

Passenger side.
Escape puts tv mount driver side
also installed extra shelf (1/2 as wide) driver side
Works well
Although I'm not sure it matters a whole lot if no tv or shelf...

The fridge is very quiet, but when on propane and lit it makes a woosh sound.. which I can only hear it if I sleep next to it.. it's not very loud.. I think maybe once or twice overnight, not frequent tho. The furnace is louder (fan) but I'm used to that sound (just like at home) so it doesn't bother me.

The fridge light makes good night light indeed.

If the TV mount is on drivers side can you turn it to see from dinette?

The TV when mounted on DS in the 19using the ETI supplied mount can definitely be swung to view from dinette. I would recommend a blue tooth speaker for the TV for the times you want to watch from the dinette.

I think the photo that I posted pretty much answers that. The answer is no.

Well, you can see it from the dinette, just not if you're seated on the driver's side. You'd have that problem anyway, although to a lesser extent, even if the tv mount was on then passenger side. That's because the view of the person sitting on the driver's side will be obstructed by the bathroom wall.

Very cool 'Paw Patrol' pillow cases there Myron!

I only know about them because my 2 year old grandson is addicted to anything related to the show.

Some long time back I seem to remember --maybe CPHarley, I think it was, suggesting sleeping with heads on street side was a better idea because it gave you a better heads up for grabbing a baseball bat (or the like) in case you heard someone trying to break in during the night.

Yes we can . The problem is the sound from the tv . Sometimes we just move tv to the kitchen counter to better hear . We do also have external Bluetooth , wireless Sony speaker . Pat
