Love how you mounted that. I think I might just copy your design I am curious where the best place is going to be to cut a hole for a dual or tri band radio setup. I'd like to tie the audio into the stereo system direct (without using an AUX cable). Don't care if it's tied to the control panel but just something to feed the audio over the speaker network would suffice.

The newer models use a different stereo than my 2011, so I can't speak of the connections available. My unit has an Aux2 jack on the back--had to take the unit out of the cabinet to get to it.

As to mounting rigs, think about making a removable cabinet that would straddle the gap between the front dinette seats. Lots of folks--myself included--have made or bought smaller tables; that would make some room for a radio setup.

You probably will not need a 50A adapter. I've never seen a 50A post at a site that didn't also have receptacles for 30A and 20A.

20A can be handy for home if you say want to run the fridge the night before leaving, just keep in mind you can't/shouldn't run the CoolCat A/C on a 20A extension cord. The cord will get very hot and more importantly, it will stress your household wiring risking failure or fire.
