One thing I noticed today, the kitchen Blinds are COMPLETELY different then every single blind in the rig. All the other blinds are no string pleaded night shades. The one in the kitchen is the old school plastic regular blinds (with a string by the stove). Anyone else have a RockWood (FR) with that?

Thanks!
They are all like that in the kitchen windows. This allows a the kitchen blinds to be a cleanable surface that won't stain/mildew from water splash or cooking mishaps.

It's a good thing. You can just wipe them down with a damp cloth.

We replaced all the day/nite shades in our 5er with venetian blinds. Like the blinds much better.

I would love to get the roller Blinds that Shasta Phoenix models have, they roll up and down and either come in Dark Brown or Black, they are made of a rubber material like a Pool Liner, so nice. My Roo cloth night shades are hard to pull down and push up, always afraid I am going to rip them.

This is what I use. Keeps rain and bugs out. Up under the tongue jack motor and in front of the battery box.

I made this today , some of the places we go you can't drive a stake in the ground so I made a piece of wood with a dowel in it as a base then put it under the hitch jack to hold it in place.

Appreciate the light on that; how so many forget the light.

Either put a light or bring the flag in you have to do one or the other.
