Put a TV up there, might not be such a good idea. I thought about that too, until I mounted the TV... Does look really nice though, what is the link for the lights on Amazon?

Look back a few post I moved my tv back to the back of trailer so I am looking straight on instead of kinking and turning my neck.

I also did not want to look across whole trailer to see tv

The space behind the fake rock wall will soon be more storage. With that storage and new cabinet I'm installing next week I will have plenty of storage for our stuff

Hey Ron,
I did not know that was you who did that, I considered that myself, it looks nice!
Thanks for link to the lights, going to buy a few, great price!

How much of a problem did you have running wires in the overhead? I want to run some wires and was going to try to run them thru the roof. I like the curved roof and the room we now have to run lines, rather than the solid roofs like they used to build. Not to mention that rain runs off rather than pooling.
I removed the fake rock too, I noticed the newer units they got rid of that cavity and have the mount at the back, and got rid of the frame as well, which I might do myself. And they put a shelf in the cabinet! Much better setup now. They also got rid of the Oven and put in a big drawer. I need to stop looking at newer units! lol

The biggest problem was the waste insulation that was in the roof. I used a wire snake to fish wires through the roof for both the TV and the lights. I cheated and used the speaker holes as bridges for the run. Such as for tv pulled down first two speakers ran snake from original tv connection to first speaker. Then went to second speaker and ran snake from that speaker to the other. Then ran snake from new hole in cabinet to second speaker and pulled wires rest of the way. Took som regular insulation and put up holes in back of speakers where insulation fell out after throwing what fell out back up in. If you do run your wire snake make sure you electric tape your hook when you fish it through the ceiling because if you need to pull it back any before hooking and taping wires to it it's a pain because that hook will catch everything. Lots of wires in ceiling.

My last mods left to do is battery switch for the two batteries, my new cabinet, (should be installed this week), and the fence post sewer hose holder, and the storage behind the fake wall.

Do they have a burner top and a combo convection microwave now? The oven is almost useless any ways half is taken up with the burner.

I wonder if that is a dealer add on. Most 2017s I still see pics online still have oven. Love to see pic if you have one. I had to take oven out and reposition because they had it in crooked.

Yeah the dealer can order from factory with different things. Like my 2016 limited came with aluminum rims and the back screen door and the higher sink faucet that some other people's that bought same time as I did that theirs did not have, and theirs were limited also.
