AZ winter Dec to Mar. But that depends on where in AZ. QZ or Yuma earlier and later if you're in the mountains.

We are all anxious to proofread the draft manuscript of "Murder at Rope Light Gulch". I'm hoping it will explain the disappearance of John Galt.

I'm fixing my Aqua Hot system today. Hopefully that fixes the endless hot water that wasn't endless!
Getting ready for our first outing this year.

Glad to hear Citrus is back with you and you can once again enjoy days on the road. Ours goes into Thor in mid-Sept once we're back from the old country.

Take care now.
Actually there are two methods for obtaining the registration sticker. (We only change plates every 7 years). The vehicle must be inspected no more than 90 days prior to expiration of registration. Inspection is sent electronically to the DMV office and entered into the system (Takes 24 hours). Once inspected, show up in person with paperwork provided by inspection station and no need to wait the 24 hours, or go on-line and apply for registration and it will be mailed.

Seems that last part about on-line is the same. You area must have duplicated Texas's on-line procedure.

Needless to say, this is the first time we have needed to use it in our new TT. We are in Pasco WA which is in the desert. It is in the 100's here. When we got back after lunch, it was 99 inside our camper. The air was not even coming out of the vents. Luckily, we are parked a block from the dealer where we got it so we called and they sent out a repairman. When the guy took off the cover, a lose wire plopped down which should have been connected. It tells the unit to shut down when too much ice builds up. So we had to suffer awhile for the ice bridge to melt before we could plug the wire back in and cool off the trailer. We were gone most of the night for a geocaching event, so we are just now trying to cool down the trailer. I have a feeling it will be a long night. Maybe when I wake, I will be skinnier from being in a sauna all night? It is now 98 inside!
Oow! I hate when that happens. FYI - I have been told that AC's in RV will keep the inside cool to about 15˚ and sometimes 20˚ cooler than the outside temperature. At one point in our travels it was over 100˚ and the AC was sure struggling. I went to Lowe's and picked up a roll of "space bubble" (Aluminum foil) and cut it to the shape of the big windows. When I pushed them into place the temperature dropped another 5˚ in a matter of minutes. I store 6 cut pieces in the closet standing up against the back wall.

Just saying!

Dang! If you keep braking things you'll never get on the road.

Rich & Val,

Welcome to the other side of the universe. Just follow the rainbow.

I'm the intelligent sane one of this group. You can just call me "Slim."

Also, when you get indoctrinated to the alternative means of communications, I have a theme song that I send out upon request. All the Mutants love it. All you have to do is request it.

Guess I have been lucky, Les. So far just normal PM and replace one screaming circulation pump (pound head on wooden cupboards for luck). Was your a stir pump? Don't know where mine are, don't wanna find out.

Hey Ed!
I have all of the HAIL stuff done except one last step. I got both inner/outer skylight parts, but weather kept me inside, so only in inside bubble is done.
And as I looked at the temporary plexiglass cover you and I crafted in HS, I thought "why not make it 3 layers?" So I plan to mount the outer bubble on the plexiglass!
Oh Yeah! More insulation.
Um....whatcha think?

Trap is right. Takes weeks for the nightmares to end... Don't Do It.
