I could never remember nor figure out (without the owners manual) how to change the time on the dash radio in my motorhome. It only displayed the correct time when we were on DST.

Yuck. I HATE the time changes. Does anyone actually benefit from it? I wish they would just leave it alone.

One of the nice things about living in most of AZ is not having to horse with DST (Darned Stupid Time).

Doesn 't AZ get penalized for that?

Thought I heard something to that effect long ago.

Actually, their days are the same length as anywhere else, if you don't look at the clock!
