Also , I personally don't usually mind hearing others music , I'd rather hear that than screaming whining kids & barking dogs

Have never switched plumbing valves to winterize, or used the TV shelf in the bedroom. Can remember using the heated mirrors one time when it was frosty outside. I paid extra for the fantastic fan but rarely ever use it. Everything else gets used every time we go out. Back up camera stays on since we usually tow the boat and carry the bikes back there.

Even if we had it, i would not use outside entertainment. We don't expect, or want, to hear a TV/stereo playing from the next campsite. Unfortunately, many people care less about being respectful towards others and play there's too loud.

We've never used the slide supports that came with our coach. The side view cameras are a bit of a distraction ... I'd prefer the rear camera stay on when I put the turn signal on. We use the exterior TV maybe once a year ... usually for a "big game" of some sort, typically it's on in the background as we do other stuff (rarely is anybody watching it intently...) - and virtually always with the sound off. Everything else gets used regularly ... we have no reservations about using the washer, the convection oven, the toilets and/or the shower.

We leave the coach "packed" between trips - including pantry items (boxed goods, canned goods, etc.) When it's time to load up - we're loading refrigerated stuff, spoilables (bread, potatoes, onions, etc.), clothing and personal items (books, personal electronics, etc.) We've gotten in the habit of going thru every drawer and storage compartment once or twice a year to clean, examine and repack the contents. Stuff that may have been inadvertently "mis-filed" gets put in the right spot - stuff that we clearly haven't used/needed gets removed as part of the process.

What we don't use

Tried the shower a few times. It is small and the shower curtain is clingy to your body. We just go around smelling!! Flip flops and you can shower anywhere. I use the bathtub for storage and put a thick piece of exterior plywood stained and finished for an additional storage shelf. We don't have a television. Never used the fire extinguisher.

We're full-time so we use almost everything. Exceptions are the bedroom TV, and the emergency battery start switch ( so far at least).

Our RV is our home, therefor everything we paid for is being used, with the exception of the outdoor entertainment system mostly out of courtesy to our 'neighbours'.

Heck yea Crank yours up and I'll turn mine down, some of my favorites are Metallica, Megadeth, Alice In Chains, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Black Sabath, Judas Priest. Not everyone who RV's is 80 years old and only listens to Paul Harvey, good day...

Only thing I can think of is a switch in the bedroom that turns on a pair of ceiling speakers from the dash stereo.

Seems like the only we don't or have not used is the spare tire and the fire extinguishers. We use the stove almost daily, we do eat, and we even bake in the oven. I winterize and then re-winterize multiple times a year after our mid winter trips. We live in Santa Fe. Omitted the bedroom TV, never liked TVs there anyhow. Otherwise, there's very little we don't use.
