Got us a water cooler. The kind that the 5 gallon water bottle sits upright in the bottom of the unit. Dispenses hot/cold/norm temp water. My Doctor told Peg I should drink only purified water, and she took it to heart. We fill the 5 gallon water bottles for $1.00, and that beats the Hell out of those little bottles.

It doesn't take up much floor space, maybe a square foot. Water is hot enough for tea, cold enough for kool-aid, and easy source to fill the coffee pot. We love it.

I bought a Japanese chef's knife for my motorhome's galley. I had bought one for my roommate (a culinary student) last year from Kamaasa in Tokyo and decided to get one for my motorhome.

Here's a goofy one. . . .

Installed a small dog bed. It's not what you think.
On the way to Charleston, SC last week the roads were causing my small laptop, which I use for GPS tracking and routing, to jump all over the shelf to the point where I didn't even want to look at it anymore. Made a couple changes to my route so I really needed to watch it. With about 50 miles left on the trip the DW puts a folded blanket underneath the laptop and WAHLA, it stops bouncing all over! Kept checking it to make sure it didn't overheat with the blanket blocking all of the circulation. Saw the little dog bed at a wally world and the bottom had tufts as well as there being sides around the whole thing. The 700+ mile ride home was great!

Just ordered a carburetor for the 4KY generator in my 31C. It's getting expensive getting this old girl fixed up.

A new Lift Pump, Coolant Valve Shutoff and a section of heater hose that split open while traveling to the Cummins Northwest Shop in Coburg Oregon.

Tow was paid for by Coach-Net and I paid for everything else to get fixed at the Cummins shop.

Don't ask me how much it cost!

I plan to do a post of my towing experience with Coach-net in a different category including photos.

I bought an ash tray since they don't include those anymore (what's up with that). Well actually it was a free paper coffee cup from the local gas station half filled with water. But I did buy a cigarette lighter (disposal).

We have a case for two water filters but didn't have a stand for them. DH went to the local Ace and got two 4" sewer T sections and set each filter in one. It works perfectly and they are very stable.
