Do you use them to protect all the tv's or what? We have never had one, and didn't know exactly what you were protecting.
I can get some measurements for your tomorrow on the bunkhouse drawers. As for surge protectors, most people will put a "whole RV" surge protector and actually more of an electrical management system in their campers. These protect the entire RV against wiring problems at the post, surges, and even more importantly low voltage situations. The low voltage situations can really do a lot more damage and are more common when you are at a campground with power power and everyone decides to run their AC's at the same time.

I have a Progressive Industries on mine that is hardwired with remote display. The remote display actually provides information to me on the voltage, current draw, error codes, frequency, etc. It's not the only one on the market, but it is the only one that I will use.

Here is a link:

X2 on the Progressive Industries model! Just installed it in my unit before we went anywhere! Pretty straight forward install and we have a lot of room and rather easy access to install it in the 36QBOK.

As for the bunkhouse drawers, they are 9 in wide, 23 in long and 8 in deep.

I have a 34TBOK with the platinum package. The fiberglass is colored throughout not painted and the designs are still stick on graphics i believe.
