    Dust Storms??

    We finally made it to the great southwest.  On the way we hit a "dust devil" head on, almost hit a tumble weed the size of a VW and we learned that "RV friendly" means the station has diesel not necessarily a good spot to fill up a gasser. But I do have a question for you long time southwest...

I would say," I saw it!" ... sometimes I would not...

    Has anyone tried the Carefree Travel?r 12-Volt Patio Awning Conversion?  The information says you can convert your existing awning to one that will deploy by electric motors ... the cost would appear half of the cost of a total replacement.
