Just ordered the FireBowl fire pit. CW had it for $69 and found it on Best Buy for $49 with free shipping.

Next to purchase is a 4' or 6' folding table, 2 adult director style chairs and a Weber Q grill. Any recommendations?

Yes. You can get a digital converter box from Radio Shack or Best Buy. Ebay or amazon as well I'm sure. Less than $100. First one we got from Radio Shack didn't work, neither did exchange. One from Best Buy works fine. If you upgrade television(s) you may not need box. New flat screens already have digital tuners.

When I was using the convertor boxes there were 2 brands available in my home town. RCA and Magnavox, the RCA was the better unit by far. simple hook up antenna to box, box to TV, need a short coaxial cable for the box to TV, no changes needed on antenna.

Just got an ad in the mail from ACE hardware today and it looks like they are advertising the same fire pit for $29.95 for those that are interested.

My wife and I have the Weber Baby Q Grill and it is a good grill but she went ahead and order yet another grill. She bought the BlackTop 360. When it arrived at the house I wondered why she bought this when we already had a good grill. Well one good feature of this grill is that it has in the center of it a deep fryer. So when we went on our next camping trip we brought it along to test it out. I stopped at the local seafood store and bought a 1 1/2 of scallops, and we then picked up some sweet potatoes. Long story short, we had deep fried scallops with sweet potato french fries that night. How cool was that! It was a nice departure from the standard BBQ fare. BTW, it can cook hamburgers, hot dogs & chicken too. Not to mention it has an infrared high heat burner for searing the aforementioned items plus a unique warming tray. It comes with it's own built in folding legs too.
It weighs about as much as the Weber BBQ, and is a tad cumbersome but its uniqueness sets it apart from any standard grill that's out there. Check it out on You Tube if you like.

I just ordered yesterday from TriMark a new door lock with a steel latch. After being stuck in the motor home with a broken latch was afraid of it happening again. $130.00 for just the outer part of the lock. The origional one has a latch made out of white metal and breaks very easily.

2 cat carriers - leaving for Florida soon and I was worried I wouldn't find something that we all liked
They are very roomy, and at night when we let the cats out, the carriers fold flat to save room. Perfect!

Where do I start?

Since we are new to RVing (we just lived in our first one on our property) there are way too many "THINGS" we had too purchase.

A Baxley wheel chock, tie down straps, lawn chairs, Mac Mini, 1080p 32" TV, fresh water hose, quick connect and water filter, black water hose, 30-50amp dogbone, extra 30gal propane tank. All new stuff for dining.

A 75gal Flowmaster fuel tank for TV. That should cover the first month.

Since we are full timing and not particularly fond of RV parks we purchased a complete solar system. Six 120w panels, Morningstar 60amp charge controller and remote meter, four 232ah 6v batteries and a Sunforce 2500w full sine-wave inverter.

A 2.5" mattress pad, screen door guard and bar, Jetpack for wifi. There's more but my mind is going blank on me.

Rusty

Rusty, you must have a most unusual television.
