Installed a digital thermostat in my 2012 Skylark 21FKV which now controls the A/C as well as the heat. Tested it and it really works well. Next project is to install a swivel TV mount.

First thing we did before our first trip was to make a master check list with the help of this forum. Wife and I have our own list where she has the clothes and food related stuff and I have the rest. You can do a search here to get ideas.

I didn't do anything to my Jayco today. Just relaxed in my zero-gravity recliner in the southern AZ sunshine, drank beer and played my guitar. It's Sunday. Why work?

Don't think I could play my guitar very well while wearing my mittens.

Just stayed 3 nights in my 2013 328RLTS with lows down to -5. Very impressed with the insulation & thermal pane windows. Kept it 65+ degrees with just the fireplace
& 1 portable heater. Could not sleep anywhere near the walls in my previous trailer in those conditions. Must say, There were very few cold spots in the trailer. Very enjoyable winter outing.

It isn't quite as cold here Jim328RLTS as where you are (+9 F), but plenty cold just the same. In prior years since I started full time the coldest I have experienced was +13 F. I too have a very comfortable interior temp. My furnace has no problems keeping the temp at 72-73 and the only place I notice any real "cool" is the floor in the dinette slide and it isn't that bad. The double pane windows work great and I have never seen condensation in the 5'er anywhere.

Brought it out of storage, de-winterized it, left it in the driveway for a couple days, re-winterized and put back into storage. I just needed to say hi.

Going to pull it out again next week for an actual trip and put in some more LED's, replace the leaky pigtail hose on the main regulator, re-install the modified step-saver, finally going to get my light for the command center from Amazon (will probably post pics of the mod in the forum). Going to finally go get everything weighed too...

The fun just NEVER ends, this is even more fun than my boat was! There's ALWAYS something to tinker with!
