What Bob? Are you saying that the UVW of your Wind River 250RDSW is 8100 pounds? It says 6900 on the suite.

Yes. You have me thinking about this...

So, we also have a heavier mattress than stock with an electric blanket. We have 4 place settings of dishes, beverage glasses (VERY important), various pots and pans, larger (40" main television, a satellite TV receiver, some weather electronics, a bedroom television, a pass-through storage compartment that is pretty full of "stuff" (leveling blocks, chocks, electric power adaptors, broom, washing brush, US flag, water hoses and fittings, a few cans of various lubricants, Equalizer hitch bars, torque wrench, two sewer hoses and fittings, a couple kinds of bug spray, etc.), some miscellaneous repair supplies, a few hand tools, a computer printer, Kleenex boxes, toilet paper and paper towels, a small ottoman, a small cocktail table, some office type supplies, a bud vase, a digital clock, a few books and videos, a first aid kit, a couple of board games, two small air circulating fans, 3 surge suppressors, two additional towel rings, two so called "hook bars" for coats and jackets, 4 dish towels, two bath towels, two hand towels, some bath and dish soap, miscellaneous kitchen and bathroom cleaning supplies, an extra pillow or two, two Maxx-Air vent covers, a slide top awning, a tire pressure monitoring system, portable vacuum cleaner, a Dustbuster and charger, two coffee pots, an electric toaster, a couple of extra blankets, two trash cans, self-defense "equipment", and I am sure I missed a few things.

This list kinda reminds me of the old saw, "Time flies when you are having fun." Maybe in RV terms, "Rig weight adds up when you are having fun."

And this weekend, after the weigh-in, I added new shelves in the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom...

Bob

Nope, no gen. But we do have several inverters, flashlights, and matches.

Our batteries (6v) take care of our rare boondocking urges. But we try to keep that under control...

I actually did that once! Somewhere I have a list of how much all that "stuff" weighs. One pair of jockey shorts weighs 3.6 oz. During our next all day rainstorm, I will find that list and refresh my memory.

Link threads?

Anybody,

Is there a way to link related iRV2 threads? There is this thread discussing Outdoors RV products and another thread for Outdoors RV products. Folks monitoring one might not be aware of the other.

Bob
