I'm looking for a unit that works like a timer to turn a light on but instead uses temperature. I want it to put a fan to come on when the temperature reaches a set temp.

I highly recommend J.C.Penney's Quik Dry towels. I truthfully don't know what fiber they are but they absorb, are very soft and dry quickly. I'd say almost all of our RV friends purchase them. $5...

Don't invest in a 2 qt. pot. It just isn't enough. I'd recommend a 4-5 quart Rival as it has a setting called Auto. It cooks on high for an hour and automatically switches to low for the balance...

The county park is nice but reservations are hard to get. I wouldn't wait and I'd make them asap. Being a county park, you might have a time limit.

Oxygenic Showerhead

The Oxygenic showerhead is worth every penny and then some. It delivers a powerful spray and rinses you clean. Would definitely recommend it.

TV Antennea

If I were to have to replace my TV antennae, I'd get one that will bring in all the stations. I think the brand name is Jack and it mounts on any system. Just research it on the web.

Loves vs. Flying J

I second the vote for Loves. Since Pilot took over Flying J we have seen the Flying J prices go up to match what Pilot charges - and they are usually higher.

I'd pass on this one. Bubbles mean the adhesive is no longer holding that part of the rubber roof down. Could be the roof was washed with a cleaner that had petroleum in it.

ChiefJohn - Read your post about the "trashy" Rvers you encountered. You said it was a military CamFam grounds. I am curious as I thought these parks were restricted to officers of the military.
