Here in southwestern Ohio, we had a wind storm about three years ago, 70 mph winds, which had power out for five days over a wide region.  We were the only ones on our block with lights, TV and a working refrigerator.  Just ran an extension cord from the PC and ran the generator a few hours each day, alternating what was plugged into it.

Incidentally, the storm also caused the magnetic corners of the vinyl windshield cover to flap, damaging the paint.  Have never have used that type of cover again.

Also, the 2010 air mattress sofa/bed has a large drawer under it that we find very useful.  We too have the large drawer under our sofa in our 2011 Model 3100. We only have occasional guests but they think the air mattress is good.  Sure wouldn't want to do without the drawer (pic).  Its great for storing the computer, printer, and longer items without having to accessing the storage under the drivers side twin bed. It holds a lot of stuff.

We have the ladder and wouldnt want to be without it. Sometimes staying weeks at a time, it makes for easy cleaning of the roof. The jacks are great.  Not only do they level, but they make it stable very little movement of the coach when moving around inside or when someone enters or leaves via the step.  We have not encountered a problem with antenna.  Never noticed any noise from it when traveling, get good reception, and a great HD picture.  Also, the home theater system is great for volume when the AC is on or in heavy rain when the TV volume is not enough.

And recommend the insulated windows: no sweating (accept the windshield), warmer, quieter.  The only option I might reconsider is getting the swivel drivers seat rather than the power seat, although I do like to raise it as high as it will go when travelling.  The very best decision was no carpet.  The second best was a light over the bathroom sink (pic).  Its pretty much the only light we use in the bathroom.

A solution that has been posted by someone else: I always type my posts/replies in a word processor first then copy and paste.  If its lost trying to post, youve still got the message and its easy to repost. Plus it checks my spelling and typing which desperately need!

Ron, appreciate the explanation, but for whatever reason, I couldn't get it to work when trying to edit an existing post. Printed it and will try on a new post later.

Sorry to get off topic again, but Ron, how do you add a hyperlink to a word or group of words?  I manage four websites, but for the life of me, can't make it work here on this forum.  Thanks.   Help

As for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the official website says peak blossoms are expected to be March 2431 this year.  So we expect there not to be blossom one when we get there. sad Were going to the Adventure Caravans 11 Day Spring Mega Rally - Washington DC:  Weve been to two other Adventure Caravans events and have really been impressed.  Everything is absolutely first class. Talking to folks at the events, they fall all over themselves talking up the other events theyve been to.  You end up doing many things you would have never done on your own, often would have never considered doing or would even know to do.  One person had been to nearly 30 rallies and caravans!  One guy came to visit our PC three times; swore he was headed to Elkhart to visit the factory.  Dont know if he ever did.

But even if we miss the cherry blossoms, we are still anxious to see D.C. again, a place that you cant really see too often.  If you havent been there, go!!  Every American should absolutely see it at least once.

We are also going in the 32 Day Great River Road & Fall Colors Caravan:  It starts in Bemidji, MN where you can step across the Mississippi River and then follows the Mighty Mississippi all the way the other end in New Orleans.  It would be fun to have another PC in the group

Were headed home from Florida to Ohio.  Delayed leaving a day due to the weather, but still had some tense moments yesterday in central Georgia.  Youre right about having NOAA weather channels on the CB.  Constant updates as you drive.  And like you, a second weather radio when setup.  Have to winterize today. Cry  But leaving for the National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. in April.  Smile

Billy, thanks for the pics. I saved them.

Yes, it would make a good space for that. Im going to make you guys jealous though: my wife hates to shop. As for not seeing the outlet before now, she suggested it was because of my 68 year-old eyes. But Im sure that isn't it.  Grin

Well, Kevin, youre right. I had to pull harder that I was initially willing to pull. A Helpful vote for your Helpful Rating. But its only about six inches deep, and even carpeted!  Considering the effort to get it out and back in place, I would only want to put something there that I would not expect to need very often. But that left a lot of space under that, so what could it be? When I showed by very smart wife, she said she knew what it was. So, I said, what? After her answer, I said, Duh.  Her answer: the mechanics for the slide.  shrug

Yes, it has two sets of seatbelts on that forward facing seat only. Dont know positively where theyre anchored, but apparently on the floor by feeling a slot behind the seat. Still, it would be nice to access any additional space if there is any.  But have to assume the space pretty much used by something.

My two cents worth on a brake system: We have an older Brake Buddy without proportional braking. (Fleetwood paid half the cost to settle a federal complaint against them for misstating towing capability on our Class A.)  I can tell when its working because I can feel it, plus the indicator on the dash.  But with very careful driving, it rarely comes on. The point being that if I had to replace it, I personally wouldnt pay extra for proportional braking with the lighter weight toad we have.

The front dinette seat has a very large drawer under it to utilize the space. But the space under the rear dinette seat, where the outlet is, is not accessible. The cushion is not removable (kind of wish it was reversible). Nothing inside or out would seem to utilize that space. But there must be something important in there no space seems to be wasted.

Well, what do you know?  Probably other 3100 owners knew this, but we didnt, even after we have owned it for a year and a half.  Theres an additional electrical outlet far back under the forward facing dinette seat.  Probably for a computer.  All the times weve cleaned, weve have never noticed it.  We set up a small Christmas tree on the table in December.  Christmas the first time in Florida still seems a little strange for a northerner.  With no outlet available (we thought), we unfolded the sofa bed in order to access the outlet for the Aerobed and used an extension cord.

So my outlet count is 12, including what must be one in the compartment above the pantry for the microwave, which is screwed shut. Living/cab, 4 (no Aerobed; 3?); kitchen 3; bedroom, 3; bath, 1; exterior, 1.  First class . . . as always.
