Gun Control. It already has started at Cabela's

There was a bit of confusion at the Cabelas Sporting Goods store this morning. When I was ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me.  Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control whackos running amok, I did just as she instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to my credit card.  Embarrassed  I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer!

I STILL DON'T THINK I LOOKED THAT BAD!

Ugh!  Time-Warner just jumped our monthly cable/phone/internet bill over 26%!    Considering satellite.  Is there an advantage between DirecTV and Dish TV for RVers? Assume both offer some way to connect to the internet a cable/phone/internet package?  Is the satellite part a do-it-yourself project to set it up for an RV?

Jim, so happy to hear you took the plunge.  I remember meeting you and showing you our 3100 in Oct. 2011 in Sevierville, TN.  You will love it, I know.  ThumbsUp

I have this thermometer: http://www.amazon.com/AcuRite-00888A2-Outdoor-Digital-Thermometer/dp/B000PAQ32O/ref=pd_sim_hg_1.  Takes a single AA battery, no wireless sensor with another set of batteries to worry about.  Mounted it above the fridge with Velcro, ran the probe down into the freezer.  Works great.  I also have a wireless thermometer for the outside temperature.

I mounted a holder per attached picture - works great.  Easy on/off.  And a matching towel bar on the door.

The shades are not opaque.  That would defeat being able to see out during the day.  With lights on low, you can see shapes from outside at night but no detail, more clearly if well lighted inside.  We close the front curtains at night.  Only takes a minute to close them.

Never a problem and we have had them on months at a time.

We store the shades and the inside sun screen under the sofa.  See pic.

We have the shades.  Heres the PC link with pics shown on our PC: http://www.phoenixusarv.com/announcements.html.  We like the shades a lot, especially when staying in Florida for several weeks.  They will make a dramatic difference in the inside temperature, especially in the cab area.  The rain wont bother them, but if we are leaving the next day and rain is forecasted, I just remove them the day before so I dont have to deal with putting them away wet.

Unfortunately, we have to store our PC outside.  I hate those wrap around windshield covers they crack, yellow and even tore once in a high wind.  Now I use the side shades on the inside when storing.  They will work with a little coaxing. Then just use this inside the windshield: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002L6KQK/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00.  Easier than putting on and taking off that wrap around windshield cover.

Then I use foam pipe insulation to protect the wipers, just cut to length: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202318553/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=foam+pipe+insulation&storeId=10051.

Easy-peazy.  Grin

Classact (really like that name), I have previously posted pictures: http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,839.msg5912.html#msg5912.  With the slide in, theres maybe 18 between the chair and sofa, fine when traveling.  Also note the picture of my little side table which is great.

Everyone has their favorite floor plan.  Were certainly happy with the 3100.  We previously had a 29 model with a sofa but no dinette.  The 3100 has both.  And the wall of cabinets behind the passenger seat holds a ton of stuff.  Someone commented they couldnt have a recliner because of those cabinets, but we do.  Works fine.  We bought a Euro chair, but use the swiveled passenger seat as the footrest.  Now in the evenings, I can recline and read or watch TV while my wife naps on the sofa.  LOL  And the full width bathroom in the back is great.

We just completed an RV caravan down the Great River Road: from southern Ohio to Bemidji, Minnesota to New Orleans, back to Ohio via the Natchez Trace, 3600 miles.  Didnt see another PC.  However, one campground owner, seeing all of the caravan RVs parked in a row, said Youve got the best rig here.  Pic on the Natchez Trace attached.

We noticed the indentations too.  While at the factory, they cut some 8 x 8 Plexiglas squares that we use.  Theyre 1/8 thick.

The mattresses in our 2011 are much better than in our 2008 but still a little too firm for us. We bought Twin Down Alternative Mattress Toppers: http://www.finewebstores.com/Twin-Down-Alternative-Mattress-Topper-Approximately-5-Inches-Thick_p_26098.html#

$120 each. They are very comfortable.  Like a pillow, though, they have to fluffed occasionally.  And at 39 inches wide x 75 inches, they fit perfectly.
