Escape 19 modifications

I finished off several open projects today and here are some photos. I installed 'night lights' inside several factory light fixtures, all on a switch that can be illuminated at night. Also a outside step light. Installed a water heater "on" light.

Converted my "weather locater" to 12v, found an old cell phone charger that coverts 12v to 6v output, seems to work now in lieu of a/c plug in which was nothing but a converter. This item, made by Bushnell, picks up local Accuweather channels so when you travel you can always have local weather displayed. It has something like 150 cities for all 48 states.

Jim, Nice work. I will have to drop off my casita for you to do some work on.... I have some projects in mind but not the time right now. I will be asking you questions though for lots of the electrical stuff.

Nice work! Love the idea of closet lights. At the Fiberglass Roundup I saw my first Escape! Fell in Love with the room that 2 extra feet provide. Fell totally in love with the quality of the Escape and all those lil extras. At some point I will place an order for one! I have Escape envy! Beautiful trailer!

Thanks Jim I appreciate the link, that looks like just what I need. I have a nice Davis here at home but am always thinking about putting something in the camper.

Added a teak floor to the bath today, I feel the wooden slats allow dirt to easy fall thru and keeps the bath cleaner and more hygienic.

I'll need to put the teak in my Scamp shower to firm things up. Every time I walk into there I feel like I'm breaking something.

Also, I love that tongue and groove cedar. I built drawers for my Trillium and used that for the bottoms. Best mod I ever did and smelled sooooo nice.
