"Side Effect" Has Been Born

The arrival of your first baby is a special moment.

Soon she'll be ready to come home.

I agree, keep the photos coming. There don't seem to be nearly as many build photos posted as there used to be. Sometimes a previously posted photo is similar but another similar photo shows a hidden detail. Always nice to know what's in hidden spaces before cutting into them.

Here are a series of construction photos. I didn't realize I needed to go the link to see the added ones. Oh Well, it was great to see so many at once.

These two are from 9/27

These four out of the five from today 10/3. They said I won't get any more for a bit until it moves to the next location for cleaning and upholstery.

Yes they are and looking really good. I can't quite put my finger on it but it sort of has a familiar look. Might be the front window.

Here's 3 mods that I've found work very well with our 21C.

1. Underbed pull out storage crates. Number 1 in usefulness.

2. Inside plexiglas front storm window. Since your head is right under the window in cold weather there can be a cold draft on your head and also condensation from your warm moist breath right underneath. The storm window does a great job with that issue, at least as good as the other double glazed windows.

3. Overhead cubbies. A convenient place to easily park little items like glasses and mounting the lights under them makes them much easier to reach and turn on and off.

Maybe I don't know what to look for but I that the controller for the solar panel was in the face of the passenger side bench?

If you're referring to post #9, lower left photo, my guess would be a 110V outlet.

I thought ETI was installing Victron controllers now. If so, there is no need to cut the controller into any bench. It's read using bluetooth on your phone.

Are you getting the 712-BMV battery monitor? If the full 712-BMV I would want the faceplate to be in an upper cabinet. Ours is in the upper cabinet, above the dinette, next to the stove. I installed it myself and didn't want to get on my hands and knees to view that small readout. If just the Smart 712 then it's only read using bluetooth.



Enjoy,

Perry

Escape just confirmed that exact location of the the bluetooth controller and the battery monitor now mounted in the face of the rear passenger side upper cabinet.

"Side Effect" is now out of production and we are scheduled to pick her up in Sumas on October 24th for the journey back to her nest.

Our 17A delivered August 1st has the BMV-712 smart monitor installed. The monitor is mounted in the upper cabinet on the right side (PS of trailer) above the bench seat. it has a cable connected with RJ12 connectors and the other end is connected to the shunt under the bench.
