Steve, I am SO relieved to know that the Dirt Devil isn't part of your water filtration system.

But why do you need an in-house vacuum?

Mel

PS--Just kidding. I want one, too.

Wow the scroll (spin?) rate has jumped again.

We are stationary in Rochester for 23 more hours! Tomorrow we take the Jeep back south to rejoin the coach is our son's farmyard south of Charlottesville. The South to Charlotte (just drop the last syllable should be a short drive). Then west to Red Bay AL for some service work. Time line there is indeterminant - big word for "who knows".

Leaving there we are thinking about going to Chrystal Bridge Museum in Bentonville AR Then ?

We had Central-vac in our last coach. This one doesn't have it.
As a true Mutant would say, "I don't have one and don't need one". My wife may say different LOL.

We have always had a stand-up carpet broom for past coaches and it easily stores in the closet. Battery powered rechargeable. It's actually easier to pull out for a quick clean and does as good a job. Wife uses a Swiffer with attached spray bottle for tile areas.

It would be nice to be able to do the toad though from an outside outlet right off the machine.

Can we just call you "Central Man?"

I understand why your best half doesn't let you use the Swiffer. No way would she give you anything wet to try to manipulate. You'd put your thumb on the button and flood the MH.

Chrystal Bridge Museum is nice even for the non artsy like me. Be sure to take a sack, cause money just drips from the walls! Don't forget to go downtown and visit the Walmart Museum on the town square, I found that more my style! Lol

Ah yes, Wally World. I pay my tithe to them on a regular basis and occasionally enjoy their lovely RV parks. But who knew they had a museum? I bet ole Sam still hangs around the place making sure things are done right. Even though every store is a bit different, I can usually find our favorite products in almost every store.

You're welcome, Tim

It works pretty well actually. So what we do is watch for someone walking the park with trash bags in hand and tucked in their belt and ask them if they would mind stepping inside and vacuuming the place. We have done this a few years as part of our retirement planning! ;-)

WalMart may be the most expensive Free overnight parking in the country unless you count Cabelas or BassPro. I am trying to imagine what would be in a WalMart Museum, old cash registers?

We will be going to AZ for Escapade March 8 to 13 in Tucson. Plus we have a lot of visiting to do in the area. If I can ever sort out where and when all the GC are going to be, we will try to catch up with whoever is there.

Hmm not more than 500 miles off my intended route, could happen depending on Tiffin's repair facility and the weather.

The place for 11/14 - 11/21 in Rockport is Drifters RV Resort. They were beginning to fill up with snowbirds a few weeks ago. We will be moving to Lagoons in Rockport on 11/21 - 12/1 and then down to Pharr Tx - Tip O Texas RV park - first timers buy 3 months and get the 4 th month free.

Dog I woke up to find that my PM box was full - deleted a few so maybe you can get through to me now. Will go to laptop today and get rid of more.

I have also exceeded my memory allotment for pictures. Not sure if this is cause my supporter payment from PayPal rejected due to old card. They say they will try again Monday. Exceeded my memory allocation - social media - hahaha...
