We pulled into the Twin Fountains RV Park, recommended by Ed and Marilyn, and got a nice level pull-through spot with good satellite TV reception. Then we went about getting things organized in Phannie, moving our stuff around as we found the right place for the household items we use.

One of the recurring themes in changing to a motorhome from a fifth wheel has been to reduce the physical demands of RV travel. To that end, I added a purely "blue" accessory: A motorized rollup reel for the electrical shore power cord. This thing is so handy! No need now to crouch on bad knees and roll up the heavy cord on the spindle provided by Tiffin inside one of the cargo bays. Just press the switch on the electric motor and the cord rolls up quickly with no exertion.
We discovered a burned-out halogen light bulb in the bedroom, and I was then able to initialize my plan to replace all of these halogen bulbs with LED lights as the halogens burn out, one by one. I had a spare LED, and voila! Brighter light with none of the heat put out by the halogen bulb--another great example of modern technology improving our lives. These LEDs will far outlast the life of this coach, and they will use much less electricity while providing better lighting. The only problem is that they are currently about six or seven times more expensive than the halogens. Thankfully, I won't have to replace them all at once.
