Walt you may want to add a cooling T-stat and axial fan. Pulls air thru gaps around doors of center cabinet and pushes air out of the left cabinet.

Cummins, Thank you for the picture and idea. I take it you had to cut a hole through the divider wall? What kind of T-stat is that? I thought about putting some kind of fan in the cabinet as my Dish Network DVR puts out a lot of heat. In fact when I've forgotten to turn on the AC in very hot weather, and leave the RV for the day, the DVR shuts down. I'm getting anxious to get the new trailer so I can start doing some of these things. If it's not too much trouble could you take some pictures of the entertainment center cabinets with the doors opened up. I'm curious to see how DRV is stacking the components. Do you have a satellite receiver in the left cabinet? Thank you and have a nice day! Walt

Cummins, Sorry to bother you with more questions. Is there enough space in the left entertainment cabinet to fit the Dish Network DVR? Which cabinet does the satellite cables come in. I had DRV add an extra HDMI cable, to my new trailer, from the TV to the entertainment center cabinet, don't know which cabinet they'll pick, so I can hook the TV directly to the Dish receiver. I did this in my present trailer to bypass the switch box they used to use. Thank you, Walt

No not enough room is left of center cabinet for Dish receiver. Personally like all the components in one location. Good call on the HDMI, I had to fish one in for my Dish setup.My cables come into bottom back center cabinet then into left cabinet to distribution points. I fished my HDMI down thru the left cabinet to the TV.
