Well Yesterday I found this Chrome bumper cover on my porch, so I decided to install it. I don't really know who sent it, but it surly wasn't my wife. I always wanted one never did like that Black 4x4 they install with the unit. So who ever sent it thank-you all that was on my shipping lable was my name. So who ever sent it THANK-YOU I may never know but I have a good idea. BUT IT SURE LOOKING GOOD>

I took apart the TV mount/cabinet in the front bedroom and wired in an AppleTV so that I can enjoy all of my Netflix and iTunes in the bedroom again like we used to in our house before we sold it. :-)

That EMS-HW50C is basically a hard wired version of our PT50C which I have to say is one of the best investments we ever made in our RV. I sleep a LOT better at night knowing power to our RV is going through it. Great upgrade!

I agree... money well spent!
I used to think ALL RV's should come from the factory with an EMS already installed but then realized if they did it would be a brand el-cheapo.

TOWTA was cracking the whip and made me install her stained glass door window today. Wouldn't even let me rest for a day. She is as bad a slave driver as Mardy was in Anchorage. No rest for the wicked, so I must be one BAD HOMBRE!

Also where can we mount our bike racks, can we do a third tow like my boat behind the trailer?

I doubt it, the weight police would shun such antics. We had to cut the 6 oblong holes and the 2 6" square holes in the 3/8" plate on the back just to lighten the load.

Well, they're not giant redwoods, but they are pretty good sized and extremely plentiful. It truly is, in my opinion, the most beautiful state in the union. When I worked for IH and flew over Lake Tahoe numerous times, I thought God did his best work on Tahoe until we flew into and toured Alaska and I had to change it to God was just practicing on Tahoe, his best work was in Alaska!.

Flew over Tahoe numerous times and visited several times also, not taking anything away from Tahoe, it is indeed beautiful, but pales in comparison to Anchorage, Denali, Kenai, etc. Everything in Alaska is just breathtaking. Went snowmachining (they don't call it snowmobiling) and got within about 5 miles of Denali and no groomed trails. Snow is 15'-20' deep and drifts just about that height. Beyond comprehension!
