Hey all, after countless hours on this site I've finally decided on doing some modifications to my used 2012 Hawk found on Craigslist recently! I previously owned a finch on my taco and upgraded to hawk/tundra when I found the hawk on CL. My Finch was dialed in with no need to change anything, 3 way fridge and atwood heater worked great!
On the other hand, my new hawk has the ice box and no heater...deal breaker for the wife. After my research I'm reluctantly deciding to install an engel sr70 where the ice box is myself. I'm hoping it's not too difficult to do but any suggestions from people who have done this would be amazing! My reason for the Engel is that I don't want to deal with adding vents to the exterior. Same reason for choosing the wave 3...that and the new atwood require some cabinet modification I don't want to mess with.
My wife has safety concerns about the wave 3 being that we have a dog and 1 yr old....thoughts on this?
If we do go with the wave 3, is this an easy install? Best spot to mount knowing that the dog sleeps below? Could it be placed on the countertop/on top of stove with added legs when in use and stored away when not? Any help on these mods I plan to take on with zero experience with this stuff is much appreciated!!!
Also, I haven't purchased anything yet so if you have a reason/suggestion for going another route then I'm open if it makes sense!
Thanks in advance and looking forward to some valuable advice...this website is gold for it!
