I finally found mine this morning. For some reason it was separated from the Owners Package and found it under some other documents in the glove box.

I also found several YouTube Video's showing how to set this up. It's really quite easy but to get it working properly proper placement of the "sticker" is critical.

But I like your use of that space as well. Caution, however, is advised when moving objects like that table (or ours) in/out of that area. I've found that it's possible to inadvertently hit the battery-USE/STORE switch to the OFF position by accident when hitting it with the table-legs. This will remove your battery from it's charge/maintaining circuit.

Thanks for the heads up.

Added a 12v socket to the trunk so I can run my air compressor w/o having to use the truck. Wired to the light.

Is the wire gauge back there adequate to handle the start up load of the compressor? I guess if the fuse does not blow you are OK!

I wired a 12 V in the storage area to run my cooler. The battery (new) lasted about 6 hours. The battery was a Interstate deep discharge. The trailer was on shore power.
I was able to recharge the battery.
I purchased the Viair compressor that runs DIRECTLY from the battery.

It is! I haven't measured the draw from the compressor, but it's not a monster. I just needed enough PSI to blow out the water when I winterize on the road.

The very expensive, very heavy vault hitch lock. Makes me nervous there is no way to get it of!

from the 20-' thread
BTW, I didn't mention it in the thread but Sunday night after all but 3 couples had left it started to drop in temp at dinner time so we fit 4 at the dinette, one one on the edge of the bed and one sitting in the isle on this from LLBean.

https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/63565?moe=ordhistory

Table for 6 in a 20!!!

My wife found this last Christmas thinking it may work for something different when watching TV or others joining us when eating in the trailer.

I found it to be very stable and comfortable

We have a Viair 450P compressor system and the label plate says it can draw up to 23 amps at 13.8 Vdc. We installed a two pole twist-lok outlet in the 23D refrigerator space just inside the access door and wired directly to the new 12Vdc bus in the trailer with a 30 amp fuse. We put the mating plug on a pigtail so we can switch the unit from the plug to the battery clamps. We have had no issues.

The wiring needs to be #10 for current draws exceeding 20 amps.

Yesterday I finished the front mounted 50 amp plug in and transfer switch with all cabling to operate my 7000 watt Honda generator which will completely run my 30' classic with power to spare.
