A new addition to our stable (on order)

As much as we love our Tesla Model S, we’ve decided it’s time for a change and will be trading our beloved Tesla in this summer. After much test-driving, measuring, test-fitting (in the car hauler), re-measuring, discussing, more test-driving, etc…  We’ve ordered our next vehicle.

Damn crickets!

    Hello all,

 

    Been a while, we know… We’ve been dormant on the blog for way too long, but that’s about to change. Let me catch you up.  ( Be aware, this is a long, photo and map laden post.  We aim to have more, smaller updates moving forward! )

Mods: Window Valance LEDs

We decided to add LEDs behind the valances of our coach windows.  We’ve seen some other brands that have a similar setup, but they appear to be down the sides of the windows and cause a lot of light bleed to the outside, even with the night shades down.  We only put them along the top valance and found that this gives plenty of light without any bleed outside when the shades are down.

The LED strips we used are color changing (red/green/blue – RGB) strips.  I also went with WiFi control modules for them so we could adjust the color and brightness from our smart-phones.

Thanks for the original idea from David of OutsideOurBubble.com!

Mods: Whole RV Reverse Osmosis Water

Spending a large portion of our time in the desert south west, we’ve come to the conclusion that 2 stage filtration and a water softener simply isn’t sufficient.  Plus, with the hardness of the water in this area, we’re having to regenerate the water softener every week (about a 30 to 45 minute job).  It’s not particularly difficult, but gets old after 10 weeks..

So, we decided to move to a Reverse Osmosis system for the whole RV. (more…)
