That is so cool-I would love to know why it can't happen?

I had one of those on my '92 Four Winds. A solid sheet of aluminum across the entire roof. Had it ten years and no maintenance. No doubt a caulk check and re-do in 30 years, but still better than cleaning and UV protecting rubber every year.

Ask and you shall receive...The grill isn't a Wolf, but I'm sure Thor will entertain an upgrade request

Gene Roddenberry was a genius and an incredible writer. I miss he and Majel. The eposides Gene was in charge of were all unique and absolutely astounding. Berman was good too, but no Gene.

I'd like to see power couplings like the new gadgets out that charge cell phones and remotes without plugging them in.....just lay them on the pad and power is transferred..... Would be so nice to just have a code at the CG for your power transfer.....enter it and pull your lightweight panel out of the side of the coach and set it on the charge panel from the CG. The biggest pain in my drain is threading that shore cord (I put a good Camco plug on it, so it barely fits through the hole) through the hole in the bottom of the bay and out to the plug in.

Something like this.....

Duracell Powermat WiCC could bring wireless charging to any smartphone, we go hands-on (video) -- Engadget

But, you still would have something that had to detach from the coach and hook up.

Something to make the waste water in the black and gray water tank magically disappear.
