My favorite thing would be gas struts (shocks) on every
flip up cabinet door. Which mind you none of mine have.
Maybe FR should manufacture more of these.

HDTV and long DVD movie air turned down nice and cool shades pulled and my favorite blanke pulled up over me on the couch, while I'm checking for holes in my EYE lids. Snoooooooooze priceless. Happy camping.

How do you switch from Gas to electric on the hot water heater?

You have to go outside and open the WH cover. On the body of the heater you will see a rather small rocker switch. It will probably have a safety clip through it to keep it from accidently being turned on empty and burning up your WH element.

Electric is cheaper, gas is faster. I run gas and turn it off at night to save money.

So far the things I like better than I thought I would:

All the appliances and systems work really well.
The frige has a freezer that really freezes.
The amount of control you have of the stove top eyes beats the crap out of the gas stove in my house!
The table and chairs instead of the booth dinette
The ceiling fan. Moves more air than I thought it would but I don't like the lights they put on it.
2 "medicine cabinets" in the bathroom.
Black tank flusher.
Pantry
TV runs on 12 vdc! What a surprise!
Create a breeze fan in bathroom. Wow. It will suck your hair off your head if you're not careful.
Lights in the storage area!

Things I like less than I had hoped:

Day/Night shades. Would prefer blinds at the kitchen table and the picture window.
There is not one 12 vdc outlet (cigarette lighter style) in this entire trailer.
Toilet seat is uncomfortable. Sadisticly so.
The counter extension will seldom get used. But when you need it, it's there!

Did your camper come with a gas grill that hangs on the out side of the camper with a gas connection and did come with a small portable shelf that hangs in the same area that matches the kitchen counter?

No. That was an option we declined.

This floorplan has an abundace of counter space. The only use we see in the counter top extention is to seat extra people on stools and they can eat there. That's the only reason we got the thing.

As to grill, we picked up the Coleman Road Trip Sport for $100 at CW. It's OK I guess, but the jury is still sort of out on that. I guess there's kind of a learning curve as to how to cook on the thing.

Most normal accessories have been listed but MY favorite is the little lady sitting under the awning beside me in a cool breeze talking about nothing and enjoying each others company. THAT is MY favorite accessory.

My tag line in my sig on "that other forum" reads:

It's not the rig, it's where you go and who you go there with.
