Help needed with Greyhawk 29MV

I just took delivery of a 2017 Greyhawk 29MV. I hope some of you guys can answer a couple of questions for me.
I want to install a hardwired Progressive Industries electrical management system. Im just guessing it would go under the foot of the bed behind the breaker box. Is the switch over box for the generator under there also?

Next: There are metal valve stem extenders on the inside duells which will make it easy to air up. For some reason they don't look heavy enough to carry monitors sufficiently. Perhaps I'm just borrowing trouble Any thoughts?

Next: I would also like to install Slide Covers on the two slides. I would like those that are cover when closed. Have been told that they will have to remove the rain gutter in order to install them. Has anyone had them installed on theirs and is it noticeable that the gutter has been removed?

Thanks very much and would appreciate any opinions and ideas. I will probably have more questions soon. Just picked the unit up last Thursday and need to get started rigging out like I want it

I have slide out toppers on mine; now I know where the rain gutter went.

Transfer Relay

The automatic transfer relay IS under the bed, but unless you are concerned about a voltage surge from your generator I see no need to install it there.
I would put it on the end of your shore cord in the outside storage compartment.

I just grabbed the portable one. I plug it in upside down in the compartment and leave the male end hanging out the bottom access hole. If it ever fails, my trip isn't ruined.

Our 2015 Greyhawk has TPO roof and slide covers (mounting bracket) were installed under the gutter (intact). Maybe different setup for 2016+ fiberglass roofs.Click image for larger version

As for Progressive Industries electrical management system, I have read mixed comments regarding a slight hum noise when powered. Some say not, some said definitely yes (read on Amazon comments area). You may want to install this in one of the exterior luggage bays in case the hum is a real issue. We already notice a slight noise from circuit box fan under bed.

Went back to look at my toppers. It seems that CW did NOT have to remove my gutters! Anyway, here's some pictures...(previously shared).
