1. We admitted we were powerless over RV gadgets and modifications... that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a LCD modification could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowes...
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our RV.
5. Admitted to many a store clerk, to ourselves and to the individuals on this forum the exact nature of our addiction.
6. Were entirely ready to have someone remove all these defects in our RV's.
7. Humbly asked a repair person to help me.
8. Made a list of all sales persons we had angered, and became willing to make amends to them all. (Well maybe)
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible. (Said screw it, and moved on to next step)
10. Continued to take inventory and made a list of further projects.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve my skills, praying only for knowledge to complete the task of the moment and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other gadget and modification freaks, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I love it!

But, being a perfectionist and compulsive/obsessive I'll have to work on tweaking the wording before it's voted on.

I too am a hopeless tinker-er. I have been at it so long, I can now claim "what were once vices, are now habits!". I noticed the other day that there is not one cabinet, bay, or corner that I haven't modified in some way. I love them all, and each one makes this home a little bit more user friendly.

After looking at SCVJeff's mods, I see my next mod waiting for me. I like the on/off switch for the FRS radios. What a great idea!

Resistence is futile....... surrender to the force.....

Hi Finhawk,
Me thinks your mods will increase, not decrease, with a new coach. For me, this is how it is. Once I have about 5 years with a coach the mods seem to slack off quite a bit. It seems it takes me about 5 years to get the coach the way I want it.

Naw, I'm sure I didn't need the SteerSafe system, the Pressure Pro setup, the air tank system for airing up the tires that I purchased from the PP guys. That's not a budding addiction, is it??
By the way, I have no DW to criticize or keep track of my toys. Guess I'm lost!

You might want to test your existing shower head before buying the Oxygenics. I just purchased one in order to save water while boondocking. They are rated at 2.5 gpm, but it probably depends on your source inlet water pressure. I first tested my existing shower hear under all of the spray pattern conditions and while using cold water only, then a 50%/50% setting of cold vs hot water. The existing shower head allowed about 3.0 gpm water flow max using the mixed water setting. This is exactly what the Oxygenics measured. Higher than the stated allowable and no better than what I already have. Mine is being returned today.

I bought a new Motorcycle last year and paid $9K, so far I have $7K in do-dads. It is a personality defect and only therapy will help. Then again with this particular personality defect, when you start therapy with one session a week, before you know it, you will be up to 7 sessions a week!, So hence, no cure!
