Sleepy, how is the solar working? I believe you have the same HPV-22B system as me, don't see many of them, mine is still working good.

Hi from Cave Spring Georgia, We are so glad our 40 foot class A is gone, it was handy after the house fire. We are going to pick up a new truck camper August 19. We have a choice between theBigfoot 2500 10.4 and the Northern Lite 10 2 EX CD dry bath. the only concern for the Bigfoot we looked (both are 2019 and new) at was there was water in three different compartments. The cost factor is so close it is not a factor, the Northern Lite comes standard with a 100 watt solar panel and a 12 volt television I know these are small items but if you have to buy it and install it on the Bigfoot I am guessing it would be several hundred extra dollars. someone told me the bigfoot had a better heating system and the bigfoot comes with 1000 b t u bigger air conditioner. and I do like the bath and dinette location in the Bigfoot, the water in the bigfoot was there long enough to rust the handle for the crank out side awning handle. I know I am procrastinating, but this is a big big decision for us, and will be the last R V we will ever have. My wife likes the slide out pantry and cabinets in the Northern Lite. Thanks for checking back in I always vicariously enjoyed your trip reports. Unfortunately I have to be back with my doctor every 28 days and this will go on for a lot longer than I would like. We hope to make the best of those days we have and intend to utilize dispersed camping in National Forests and maybe some B L M land. thanks for reading a long and rambling post, near the later part of September, the latest early October we hope to tour through your general area we both would enjoy meeting you and Janet and buy you lunch or supper, My traveling pal of 12 years Wrinkles the basset hound past away recently that was a stab in the heart. My wife has had shoulder replacement but doing pretty good. Good luck, good health, and happy traveling to you and Janet

Sleepy!!! The very incarnation of the TC spirit. No one has ever lived the life more intensely and for so long. Glad to hear from you. The new Mod, I dont know. But the old Mod is happily gone.
