If not I guess I'll just pull over done that enough times. But Key Largo and Miami here we come.
Have a safe trip. Bad stuff hitting here late tonight. Maybe you will make it ahead of the storm as really high winds predicted. Later RJD

Installed 2 new camco roof vent covers, white, to replace the thin, cheap, dry rotted black ones that came on my rockwood. These are much thicker.

How much does it help

Any feedback on how much it helps? We regularly camp at a place where TV reception is really bad, but I have hesitated to commit to antenna change thinking it may not make enough difference to matter.

X2! If nothing else, the visual inside our MH lets us know what kind of signal we have. We have camped a few places with little to no signal, but even with a weak signal (closest tower 50+ miles away, with moderate sized mountains blocking us) we get enough of a digital signal to lock on.

At first glance I though you said " Installed 2 New Camo vent covers" and though you went to the Dark side! The Fac installed MaxAir covers now,were your covers MaxAir or Dealer Installed? Youroo!!

Ha. That's funny. A camo fiver would make a great deer blind.
Not sure about the original covers. They were on the rockwood when we bought it new. Probably from the factory. They were so oxidized and brittle they fell apart on touch. Very thin. One above kitchen and one above sofa. The third in the bath is maxaire power vent. Its still good.

Went to the BMV to process a State to State title transfer to get the hemi plated. But I guess I need to have a BMV employee or a cop do a check on the VIN to make sure its not stolen. - I wasn't aware of this.

Same thing in Florida. Have to bring EVERYTHING to Florida Motor Vehicle Office (aka County Tax Office). In our case, that means truck & 5er just so they can verify the VIN's. Oh, and by the way, they don't go out in the rain. That happened to us last year, We elected to wait & the rain stopped 45 minutes later so, they then the clerk (very nice girl) came out to verify.

Washington is the same...If came from another state, must be inspected....The Cop Shop is about 100 yards from the DMV office.
