Thank you so much for your helpful thoughts. LoL on the camera. I did have a question about the generator. When it is on, and due to the bath being in the front, how much do you hear the generator when you are in the bedroom? Living Room? I assume that this model is much more noise friendly than having your bedroom right above the generator. Your thoughts?

You can't really hear it at all in the living room, and barely if any in the bedroom.
Our other unit had the bedroom right over the genset compartment and it was just a low hum.

One more question. I assume that you have opted for the Residential refrigerator. When we rented a fifth wheel we had the elec/gas option on the refrigerator and we never had to worry that it would not be working if we did not have power. I guess this is really now a moot point with the geny, but wanted to know if you had any thoughts one way or the other. Have you ever had an occasion when the refrig ran down the battery?

The only time I ran the fridge on the inverter for any length of time was the 6hr drive back after we picked it up. My truck was charging the TT batteries also. I've never had a need to run it straight off the batteries only, our tech at the dealer told me it should run at least 2 days off just the battery/inverter power.
We also have dual batteries. That's the reason I like having a genset, everything should always be covered.

We just finished being on the road for 2 months in our new 36FBTS. Picked it up in Indiana, drove down to Florida and then back home to Southern California. Its now in service for warranty work. The layout is awesome and we are really enjoying the huge bathroom and the washer/dryer. We did not put in a generator, but opted for solar panels and 4 six volt batteries which seems to be working great with the refer, but haven't put it to a 3-5 day dry camping test yet. Our door lock had to be replaced as well as the bedroom AC unit. We had some issues with the 6 point leveling, as the middle stabilizers were unreliable. When we took it to the dealer, they worked. Glad that it is under a 2 year warranty! I think we did very well in ordering the options we chose and so far there is nothing we would have changed. We opted for the queen size bed instead of the king size and it gives us more room to make the bed and also has 2 nightstands. Love the theater seating, very comfy.
Ready to pick it up a dealer and head out again soon.
