Really didn't do all that much:

Battery watering system
2 upgrades to the inverter (better control panel and BMK)
Surge protection (plus bad power detection) in main shore power line coming in
Outside TV
Better Surround Sound
40 " mid-ship TV
See level Gauges
All LED lights.
Winegard (on the roof) satellite dish.
Tire pressure monitoring system.
Additional slide out tray in basement.
Tire/front airbags upgrade (courtesy of FR).
Tire covers, of course (since I'm full time).

Two ladders (not attached, but I wouldn't have bought them is I hadn't bought the coach) one 16 foot collapsible straight ladder and one 7 foot collapsible step ladder (total cost of two right at $600. OUCH!!! )

Rand McNally 7720 GPS (same comment about not buying it if I didn't have a coach)

And finally (drum roll please) covers for slide topper rollers. I make a big deal out of this because when I bought them, I had no idea they would be $1400!!! Didn't ask ahead of time; biggest dumb S*** thing I done of that year.

Wait a sec..... That's more that I thought.... Damn money pit!!!

Boowho??

You got that right, brother.... I just started adding it all up; I've got to take this list to my insurance agent just to make sure it's all covered.

Still, Phil has out-spent me, I believe. Those full aluminum wheels ain't cheap!! BTW, his and my coaches are six numbers apart on serial number.

Boowho??

How many do you want? Make me an offer and I will bring to Goshen. I can also bring another rack if you want it. I removed mine. I think I have seven baskets.

We have not been to Brad And Hall do they have a lot of couches and recliners ? We have had our motor home 2 years now but want something different .
