If thereís nothing much needing to be fixed after your PDI you should be able to take it home the same day. If thereís lots of work youíd be well advised to have them fix it before you pay for it. Itís not likely but it might need parts from the factory which could take a while. But Iíd plan on picking it up on the first day.

Great job Jay, you have been one busy guy. Can you post how you hooked up the microwave to the inverter? I would like to do that to one outlet if possible to make coffee when at a camp site and cant turn on gen.

I hesitate to give electrical advice because I wouldn't want someone to get hurt by doing it wrong, so I will answer your question but I urge you to get help from an electrician if you're not 100% confident that you can do it safely yourself.

The inverter has hard-wired output terminals that are connected to the outlet behind the TV. I ran a new length of Romex from those output terminals to inside the main power center, where I disconnected the two branch circuits for the microwave and GFCI outlets and connected them to the inverter instead. It's crucial to do that with both the hot AND neutral lines of those circuits, and I did so with the ground as well although it's less crucial. These effectively become a single new branch circuit that is protected by the 16A output breaker on the inverter, so for example one might not be able to run a coffee maker and the microwave at the same time even on shore power but I'm okay with that. The inverter output has no connections to the main distribution panel but it was easier to rewire the branches there than pulling them out and joining them elsewhere. I labeled everything clearly so they won't be mistaken for something else.

If one only wanted a single outlet from the inverter on the kitchen side, I would just run Romex from the inverter outputs to a new outlet and skip the power center entirely. Or for the simplest possible approach, just set a coffee maker on the table and plug it into the outlet behind the TV which is already on the inverter.

I probably wouldn't fit in the bathroom.

I was hoping this would be awesome ... Mercedes, 4x4, small b class, with bathroom ... sounds great ... but alas the layout just was not very well thought out making this very cramped. The other layout is a bit better.

We had it on our 40'Searay. It is awesome and lasts a very long time.

We sleep with our heads pretty close to the rear doors, which puts our hips on the main "couch" cushion and well aft of the folding seat brackets. I'm a 6' tall side sleeper and my 5'4" wife sleeps on her back but neither of us notice the brackets under our legs, just not much pressure there plus we use a pillow-top (but not all that thick) mattress cover under us. Hope that helps.
jay would you be able to give me step by step on how to pull the JBL speaker

The clip on the right is spring-loaded BUT mine came with a security-head screw in that clip that was tightened all the way down so it was immovable. Why? Beats me. I just removed that screw as shown in the first photo and the spring is plenty strong enough to hold the speaker (we tested that on some pretty rough trails).

With the screw removed you can squeeze the clip to release or re-insert the speaker as in the second photo.
