Ok, I have to ask: why the surge protector? Are electrical surges at campgrounds common?

Shower switchover: the Oxygenics head?

A quality surge protector like the Progressive Industries EMS series will protect you from both power spikes during storms, and low power situations in busy campgrounds when everyone is cranking up their A/C. Those are both good features to protect all of the electrical system on the RV.
But it will also protect you from mis-wired power poles and it shows you how much power you are currently drawing so you don't go over 30amps and trip a breaker.
It was one of the first mods I did and it gives me great peace of mind.

X2 on the peace of mind. We've been camping in trailers for over 20 years. Started in pups and upgraded to htts. Never had one until I put the Progressive hw in our trailer this spring. Seen a lot of shady hookups. Poles lying on the ground to plug in. Even a 5 star MA cg where 5 sites connected to the same pole (and they only had one 30 amp outlet and 2 duplex 15 amp outlet).

We took them out. Took out.the one under the bathroom sink too. Well put some type of barrier up eventually, but those are a waste. Never stayed up anyway.

My only concern so far is the lack of a roof vent for the fridge because of the slide. We never heard a peep from the Dometic on our old 183 from 2008 to date. The upper side vent design is already making noise. Will have to update per threads on this forum. Love the heated bunks. On a cool night with dew, makes a big difference. I think you were wise to pass on the thermopane windows. Take a look at your ceiling (where the heat goes). 2 plastic skylights, 2 plastic vents and
I don't know what leaks out the A/C.

Google "noisy fridge." Fix is to replace the stock fans with ball bearing computer fans.

Mine spun off twice too. Only installed the filter on our second trip (first trip was fall last year so I didn't put the filter in just for storage). We had finished setting up at the cg and went for a walk with the dog and kids. Came back to water pouring out of the camper door and running down the steps like a waterfall. Found the canister had spun off and lying on the floor. Next trip is not until the 4th but next mod is to get rid of that filter. (Nice idea to add a filter, too bad they are expensive.) Was planning only to use it this first year only and go back to the camco external.
