It means you should not even use clean clothes in the crock as a basis for soup broth.

It means I will stick with my Splendide. It has been sanitized and I know what goes in it. Others may of course - do differently... and you can learn a lot about doing laundry at the mat...

Thanks Herb and thanks for the call!!

Hopefully Bonita will be ok - she is sitting out at MCD with her new shades. They just called and said I can come and get her... like I'm going out now. But I am worried about her... fingers crossed.

I have done plenty of laundry in a sink, pail or pan. But they were always mine... lol. This really is all in good fun. Believe me - the B Van did not have a washer dryer. Lol. I camped happily in it for 20 years 😎

The estimate is 80 to 100 folks in the circle of contact from the guy here in Dallas. This is serious - but they're saying there isn't a big threat beyond those folks already infected.

It is a little scary to think it is roughly 15 miles down the road from us. And I heard authorities are going to prosecute the guy for lying about his health status or condition.

Regardless - Healing Ommms to all.

The carpenter sent these pics of the command module shades and his woodwork

The old black shades and curtains are gone.. and so is the smoked plexiglass in the doors up front and over the TV components. You can almost see the new aluminum in doors up front.

Double check to see if they wired the front shades so that you can operate them without having to turn on the key. You might need to ask them to do that because the standard is to tie them to the key. MUCHO BETTER!

That's a nasty story, but we walk amongst germs every day. Not only that, but we are at the mercy of the servers and cooks in places we eat. I have seen some hidden video that would make you stay home more.

Mel,
We had the stack-able washer and dryer in the 5th wheel. It was much more efficient than the combo washer/dryer. Consider that when you are drying a load in the stack-able you can simultaneously be washing another load. With the combo washer/dryer you are stuck with one load until the end of the drying cycle. Make for washing and drying a much longer time. This is one of the reasons why those with the combos do small loads each day, in my thinking.

Many of the motorhomes do not give you a choice. They have on or the other type of system. In the 5th wheel we had, others modified the dryer for 240v. The Splendid stack-able was capable of that voltage and it considerably reduced the drying time. I never got around to doing that, and I do not know if the combo has a 240v capability. (Anyone?)

Doing light loads will reduce the vibration, as it is when the load is uneven that vibrations will be evident. Even with light loads there will be some vibration.

Earlene uses our combo only once in a while for "her delicate items." All other times we go to the laundromat and get the washing done all at once. I'm not going to sit there and try to out think the biologists and their penchant for everything having germs. If I were to worry about that I'd never leave the house.
