Interesting out of fourteen items

1-10.. Got (Well the weather band is on several other radios ONE of which is at the cockpit 2 of which are in the "Radio Room)

13 (kindle for co-pilot) Co-polit is a computer phob... Kindle is a computer, Now I might like one... But I'm busy driving.

Android tablit.... The more I read about Smart Phones and Android.. (And I=Phone) the less I want one.

I have a Grill I like and wife has a Vaccum she understands.. I'm sure the central vac would be a akin to a computer to her.

I always thought I wanted an onboard vacuum, until I got one. The hose reaches, barely, all of the floor areas. If you want to vacuum the basement, get the portable vacuum out. If you want to vacuum the toad, get the portable vacuum out. If you're going to carry a portable vacuum why are you taking up basement space (albeit on the ceiling) on an onboard unit and carrying a bulky heavy hose? Get a good cannister vacuum with the beater bar for the carpet and floor attachment for tile. It'll also have a crevice tool for furniture and those narrow spaces. Much more useful.

Hmmm. I love our central vacuum. It reaches everywhere in the 40-foot RV. To do the basement or the car, there is a connection in the basement (or I could run it out the window). I don't have to store a portable vacuum and carry it around.

Still, you make a good point. It probably a toss up.
