At the end of the 1950's our beloved Beatniks went the way of the Dinosaurs.
The 60's produced Hippies and Flower Children, as well as Peaceniks.
We were Groovy. As the Rascals song states  "Groovin on a Sunday afternoon".  and yes we are Baby Boomers.
Then came the 70's and Funky people.  Maybe Funk and Wagnalls was taking the place of Webster's Dictionary.
So Funky was in Groovin was out.
All I know the years went by fast.
Now I'm retired, and I'm goin Groovin in my Funky Phoenix.

Totally Funkified

Thanks Folks
Great Ideas.

George, I liked the way you wired the light. Also, liked the idea from Bobander as well, perfectly placed on the cabinet. Good pictures Bob and George.
Again, thanks for the help.

not just during winter storage, but also when I'm parked at park and returning to my site at night. As I said earlier I may go for the battery sticky mounted type, like Kevin mentioned.

A stick up  battery light would do the trick.

My thought was something on the same idea as the courtesy light that turns on like the vehicle entry doors.  But I could use a stick up battery light to save the trouble of wiring.

Thanks to all that replied

During the winter storage months I would go into my MH to inspect it, clean it, etc. Many times it was at night. I found myself fumbling around for the ceiling light switch.

SO, I was wondering if there is a way to mount a light just above the door that would turn on when the door opens.

I'm thinkink of wiring it to the step switch, when the step comes out light goes on, knee caps survive the bang on the cabinets.

Any ideas woud be greatly appreciated.

I failed to mention that most of my driving is done on cruise control at 62 mph.  I get better gas mileage that way.

I just returned from a trip to Virginia. Using a Scan Gauge we averaged 10.6 round trip.  Mass to Va and then returned via the Del Mar Va coast road.
Total miles just around 1200 miles. 10.6 mpg.

One of the best ways of storing these bags, is in the refrigerator.  We use ours as "stuffies" to keep things from falling over or rattling. In the food cabinets in between glass jars, canned goods, any cabinet where items are loose the bags are great. Yup! the dish cabinet as well.

When not using them as stuffies I tuck them in behind the stove top.

Good Morning portadoug

I agree with kevin, try the Phoenix/Intervec Travel group.  You'll meet very nice people, see the different modifications the folks have made to their RVs, and for a bonus, Kermit may show up with one of the newer versions.

We bought our PC 2350 in 08. We went to our first Rally in 2010 held in Branson, MO. We had a great time with the other members.

We became friends with Frank and Dee Jezek of Michigan, and thats why we attended last years Rally in New Hampshire.  Thats right,,,, I met Kevin at that event. Kevin has the Big White Phoenix. (Stealth Mode)

Our travel plans for this year will be a trip thru Ontario, Canada to Michigans Upper Peninsula to visit with the Jezeks.  this is the web site for the group. You can read their newsletters, and get info on this years event in Texas.

Don't be to surprised if at some point in your travels another Phoenix pulls up next to you. Last year I was visiting
Prince Edward Island, and there, out of nowhere another Phoenix appeared. A very nice couple from Florida, George and Judi
also known as gradygal here in the forums. Later in the year we crossed their path again in New Hampshire at the Rally.

Again, this years event will be held in Kerriville Texas. Five nights at the Guadeloupe River RV Resort.    Cowboy

Check out the groups newsletter on their web page. They also list some local events, many of the members will have regional
get togethers.

Safe Travels

I'm so glad that I posted my question to this Forum. So many great replies. I appreciate the help, and suggestions from all.

Classact, you may be hearing from us when the time comes for our trip. Our main interests are tours, Old country musicians, and museums.

I'm a big Skeeter Davis fan, so I'll be seeking out a few of old records.

Thanks again, to all. Our trip will better do to all of you.

Hi Judi

I'm planning our 2012 trips, picking campgrounds, routes and places.

In the Spring we'll be travelling along the Seaway Trail from NY to PA.

In June we're heading to Michigan via Canada.  In September we'll be going to the Great Smoky Mtns and Nashville TN.

Right now, it looks like we'll miss Texas and the Rally.

Say Hi to George for me.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year

Bill and Karen Golden
