We have the fancy pendant lights over island but no room for bedside lamp..maybe someday they will combine all the good points from units and make one perfect one 😉

I would remove the little metal 'clips' that affix the curtains in the bedroom along the bottom as sooner or later you'll hit up against them and just rip them out of the wall. After one got torn out I removed the other and let the curtains just hang which works fine.

Good idea about the curtain clips because I've hot my hip on those more than once and got a nice bruise!

We are replacing the light over the island with a light weight pendant light too! Working on that right now.

To the op the fridge will be on gas if you turn off the auto switch (light off). To adjust fridge temp there is a slider on the fin of the big heat sink at the back of the top shelf. Slide up for more cold and down for less. Also a small batt powered fan helps cool down faster (most Rv places sell these) as does keeping things away from the wall so air can circulate.

I'd love to see the replacement light ideas for over the island. My wife would love more light in that area.

I believe My 325 Res has a light switch on the bathroom wall inside the bedroom... weird. My biggest complaint is no AM/FM antenna on the roof. Absolutely terrible reception. The antenna for the radio in the sound bar is rolled up inside the entertainment center cabinet.

When we shopped units that was a deal breaker for the her.

Have you installed them yet? I'd be keen to see how they retrofit in place of the existing fixtures.
