Were 'dat pole come from?

Got notified to pick up the new rear bumper for the '14 Itasca. First time I backed the new unit by myself, misjudged the location and backed into a 3 inch x 3 ft high gate pole.

Suggest you consider investing in a quality rear camera. Cheaper than another new rear bumper.

The embarrassing part is that I have one, just didn't pick up on the low pole due to the angle I have it set to cover pulling the dolly and toad.

No need to be embarrassed. You are not alone.
I made a similar maneuver with our new 2009 MH during the steeper part of the "learning curve" while getting accustomed to taking full advantage of the view/perspective provided by the rear camera. While backing up in our yard, just grazed the water wellhead. I was more fortunate and just scraped off a wee bit of paint. Sure have used that rear camera consistently since that experience!
May I take the liberty of suggesting that the camera angle be set to include the outermost edge of the rear bumper or at least the hitch receiver as an indicator of bumper position, if at all possible...

Yesterday I installed the King Controls Jack Antenna. Took about three hours. I am in Idaho - near American Falls. With the Wineguard batwing we could receive two channels - but not very well. Now, with the Jack, we cannot get anything. In my opinion, do not waste your money.

Just replaced my porch light with a new LED version

I cheated, though.........

Camping World has an LED version of the typical porch for $42.99.
I bought the standard version, with switch, for $9.99
Then bought the led replacement bulb for $18.99.

Our latest purchases were a Rand McNally TripMaker 7710 from another WIT member at the Winnebago GNR.
We also purchased a Fabulous Fan for our stove vent. Love it. It has three speeds the slowest for venting while cooking, the fastest for whole coach venting. As a bonus, it has an LED light, bright and nightlight.

A new roof! Just had RVroof replace our entire roof. They did a fabulous job and I highly recommend them. If you are in need and will be in Florida, Green Cove Springs, give them a call.

You left a few things out. Which RV Center in Green Cove Springs - Reveles, Baker, ? What kind of roof - rubber, spray, glass ? Cost ? Length of Warrantee on new roof ? How much time to complete from date of drop off ?

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

We bought a Vista Shade from ShadePro. Seems like we always get a site with the afternoon sun. Now it won't matter! I love the zipper feature on this one. You can leave the shorter section attached and roll it up with the awning. Then, when you need more shade, just zip the longer section on!

Dicor sealant, anode for my hot water heater, and a fitting for my hose to flush out the heater.

New 3 way valve, for the water pump, to replace the one that was improperly installed.
