Show and Tell

It's time to start listing our modifications to our TV's and trailers for show and tell. Let everyone else see the improvements you've made to your rolling homes. Just list your mods here and I'll compile a list for everyone to see. We'll set aside a time during the rally for the official show and tell or you can set a time with each other to view and discuss what each of us has done. This is for the ladies also. As you can see from our list, several things have been done to the interior to make things more convenient. I'll start by listing our mods. Just add yours to the list.

Jim,
Mark Krol said he would be there by 3:00 p.m. Thursday. I suggest that we have the show and tell at that time prior to the Keystone RV dinner. I will put it in the agenda as well.

As I posted on another thread, I succeeded in the installation of a new Delta faucet for the kitchen with spray and a quick-connect adapter. The adapter allows for hookup of DW's Vesta dishwasher. For those who have not seen one, it is a counter-top four-setting dishwasher that does a surprising job for such a small unit. It has a sanitation cycle in addition to the normal wash cycle. Drying is convection only (a fancy word for leaving the door open and letting the dishes drip-dry). Anyway, for those who are interested, you can take a look-see during the Show and Tell at the rally or at any other time if you wish. I apologize for what will probably be a wanna-have for the women if the counter space is available. We do use paper plates mostly, but for those occasions when steak or other special meals are the exception, the dishwasher definitely is an added luxury. We are definitely looking forward to the rally!!!

Bingo,
I'm not sure that we should be showing the women your dishwasher. It sounds way too dangerous to me.
Jim
On edit: We are not even going to mention your dishwasher at anytime during the rally.

Jim,
Since we love you both so much, Cathy has said that there is no way she would deprive Vickie of the opportunity to see an item that saves women work. I also know that a true gentleman such as yourself could never say no to a pleading statement such as "Honey, please, I think we really need one!!" Your only recourse may be that you do not have the counter room next to the sink. That, believe it or not, was one of the deciding factors in our selection of the 3400. Be careful stating that though, since there are a couple of members who have modified their kitchens and have the dishwashers installed permanently into their cabinetry. I also suppose you don't want us to mention that around Vickie??

Steve,
You've been busy. You have a lot to show off. I particulary like the screened doors in the entertainment cabinet. See you in a few days.

I know what you mean. Our Monty is in our barn when we aren't traveling and I'm always thinking of things to improve it. These show and tells fuel the imagination.
