We have ordered a new Sunnybrook fifth wheel and now my wife has decided that the model we ordered has insufficient 12 volt lighting by the couch for her to do her cross stitching (fine time to think about that). It is scheduled to come off the production line in mid july so we haven't taken delivery yet. Does anyone know if factorys are inclined to add special features (such as adding a wall lamp over the couch) to a standard model? If not, is it possible to fish wires and add an after market lamp?
Thanks
Jerryg

If you want lights added at the factory, I would think the sooner you ask, the more likely they might be able to accommodate...

You can string new wires after the fact, but it would be much easier for them to do it during construction, if possible.

Did you order any up grades? We have 2 lights above the couch and 2 on the wall behind the couch. The 2 on the wall was part of a package that put ends on the couch amd 2 lights in the bedroom and some other stuff.

You haven't replied, so I assume you haven't made a decision yet. If your RV has vacu-bonded walls, forget running wires through the walls after you take delivery, you must surface-mount them, really tacky in a new RV.

You can change out the lights for a more flexable lamp where she does her stiching. They come with long flexable necks so you can adjust as you like.
