Thanks Phil -- since we are still in the shopping phase, I am at a disadvantage of not having a Birkie parked outside to check
Thanks for the info on slide switch location. I was already thinking Data Closet
So, the bottom line is, Berkies all come with Slide Locks. I can remove that bullet from the list.

A bit confused - central storage door locking? As in an electronic lock?
(if so, ya betcha that would be expensive!
With the exception of the larger tanks and smart wheel (I have no idea what a smart wheel costs but could it be that much?) most of the other things are re-wickering floorplan layouts and fluid intake ports. The Emergency Exit Door could be made by re-purposing a medium-size storage door.
The TPMS, WasteMaster, Keyless Door, Power Reels & HDTV Antenna all retail for a total of @ $1800 (so FR cost would be @ $900)
The larger tanks they could obtain from the product line used by XLR or Vengeance (assuming they would fit the frame) so the cost should not be that signifiant.
I know one Berkshire owner that "insulated" their manifold by putting in a small infared heater - so I would imagine strategically placed XX Watt infared lamps in the manifold & some beefed up insulation would take care of the cold weather insulation of the manifold.
So, given that the mods could all be done for less than probably $2K, they would probably boost the MSRP $10K
