Sanibel 3801 & EMS

Hello all, this is my first time on the forum. Been creeping around it for a year and have picked up on some good ideas and found I am not alone with quite a few issues we have had. We brought our Sanibel home in June,2017 but due to health issues were unable to use it for the first year. Had to take unit back to dealer 2x for warranty fixes. Some were fixed, some not. Currently waiting to hear if kitchen slide will be addressed. Wrinkling & tearing of linoleum. Anyway as we near the closing on sale of our house (going fulltime)I have a couple projects to complete in the Sanibel today. One is swapping out the toilet for a Dometic 320 and the other is installing a Progressive EMS. My question is location for EMS. It sounds like behind the breaker panel may be the spot. Any other 3801 owners that have done this install ?

The kitchen slide because of what's installed in it (refrigerator, stove, pantry etc.) is very heavy. Even if you get it adjusted, it will eventually (because of the fridge located on that corner) start to make contact with the floor linoleum.

LCI (Lippert Components) makes a "slider kit" which are nothing more than a pair of thin vinyl sheets/planks approx. 40" long X 6" wide with anti-skid tape on the underside. Just lay them on the floor prior to bringing in the slide and the corners of the slide will glide on top of the "sliders" instead of gouging into the floor. Before getting the "kit" I used a thin (1/4" thick) cutting board on the floor where the slide was gouging into the floor.

Behind the power panel is probably the best and most common place that EMS units are installed.

Hope my info/suggestions are useful.
