  1. 2017 Furrion TV & Furrion stereo Although we've had our camper 3 years, we rarely used the television until we wanted to watch the Superbowl a couple weekends ago. Wanting to pipe the sound through the stereo speakers I set out to learn how to make it happen. Searched forum... 😬 Watched video... our settings menu is different Unplugged & replugged cables on television & behind stereo... 😬 Just started pushing buttons... Success! It appears, in our case anyway, that the stereo mode needs to be set to ARC, not AUX. And it takes it several second
  2. Goosebumps! The Blue Angels perform [almost] every year at Lakeland's huge airshow, the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In. I hear the roar & run outside to my private viewing of their magnificence. Goosebumps & tears every time.
  3. Being Floridians, we, too, have seldom RV camped here. Places we have stayed & enjoyed are: Jacksonville- Kathryn Hanna Park St. Augustine- Anastasia SP High Springs- O'Leno SP Sopchoppy- Ochlockonee River SP (Only stayed 1 night.) Pensacola- Top Sail SP Chipley- Falling Waters SP (1 night, not much to do once you've seen the falls.) Lakeland (home)- Sanlan RV Resort (it's where we taught ourselves how to use camper. Nice pools & trails through reclaimed phosphate pits.) Pre-camper days we enjoyed tent camping with our boys at Fort De Soto CP,
  4. We purchased the Yamaha 2400 Inverter Generator for our 2017 Oliver Elite II, it works great with power to spare. The only down side is it's weight but will put up with the additional weight as it is an outstanding generator.
  5. My (Chris) favorite is a secluded boat launch on the Tsirku River about 30 miles outside of Haines, AK. It is primarily used by folks who have homes on Chilkat Lake that are only accessible by boat. https://maps.app.goo.gl/qXKAupauU1tLi9N2A
  6. Congratulations & welcome! We LOVE Harvest Hosts! The only place where we have stayed on your projected route is Paw Paw's Pecans in Atkins, Arkansas. It's not too far south of I-40. Another great option for one-nighters is Cracker Barrel, especially after an unusually long drive day & cooking is the last thing you want to do.
  7. Just more of this nonsense here.
  8. Too funny! Baxter State Park was the inspiration for our boy's name. I must warn you, when you are screaming his name (because he & his sister are playing tug-of-war with a possum) it sounds like you are saying something quite inappropriate.
  9. Doggy preparedness: 1. A dog first aid kit & book. 2. Skip getting a pretty rug for inside the door. Get two turf-like/shoe-scraper ones, one for outside & one for inside. Grass & sand will still get beyond them, but not as much. 3. Cordless stick vacuum. You don't want the little short ones because the exhaust sends into orbit what you're trying to suck up. 4. A broom with a small head. I found a great one at the dollar store. 5. These towels because, like our dogs, terry cloth never dries. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RSQH0N4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_nShgB
  10. We have no experience camping in the southwest, yet. Only 2 cents I can add is to suggest the River View RV Resort that is right across the river from Natchez, MS in Vidalia, LA. We were there a couple weeks ago because hubs wanted to stay somewhere with a view of the Mississippi. The place is spotless, sites are spacious, and the rates were amazingly low. I must admit it was fun to watch the barges go by. https://www.riverviewrvpark.com/ If you go, request site #2.
  11. Fast forward to 2020... Since I am unable to find other posts about this issue, I'm curious if anyone else has had windows fail. We just had our street side/aft window replaced during our Ollie's annual checkup. Unfortunately, we are out of warranty so that added $400 to the bill. Now, on the road, we've noticed the other street side window has failed. What are we doing wrong? Any suggestions? (While in storage, streetside faces east & Refectix in all windows.) Thanks, Chris
  12. A couple weeks ago, while at a Harvest Host in Atkins, AR (Paw Paw's Pecans-Great place!) we met a couple from FL who were moving to Wichita, KS to be centrally located for traveling. I'm fairly sure I failed to disguise the "are you crazy!?" look on my face. (The aeronautical industry took my brother there 40+ years ago. He agrees. 🤓)
  13. We were in Hohenwald for service Oct 4-7. The 1st night we camped in the sales office parking lot. They have several power pedestals to use. There were three other campers there with us & one was a couple scheduled for a factory tour. While Oliver had our Ollie, we stayed in Linden at the Commodore Hotel. It is an historic building on the main drag. The room/bldg needs some love but was clean. The Commodore allows pets & a continental breakfast is included. The Meriwether Lewis campground was still closed.
