    outside television

    We purchased a small tv recently. We have it hooked up in our basement so we can watch tv outside. Is that terrible? We thought when the weather gets a little warmer, we can pop some pop corn and pretend we are at a drive-in-theater. Does it get any better??????

    kitchen counters

    We previously had a 2008 3670 Big Horn. We loved the 5th wheel; however, when the 2010 3670 Big Horn's arrived, we up-graded. We are still loving the Big Horn, but I am not very happy with the kitchen counters. I am very careful with the counters not to damage them. But I am seeing small...

    the new portable satellite

    Has anyone purchased a new portable satellite called, "Vu Cube"? It looks like what we are needing. Maybe simplier to use than a regular satellite dish. Hubby and I are all for "simplier", since we are both "mechanically challenged". Sad but true. We realize that we must go to a "satellite"...
