We're back at the house, and what a time we had!
We had great weather (and a tsunami warning!), and got to meet a ton of people. Morro Bay State Park is a lovely venue, and there were something like thirty five Lazy Daze, with the oldest being a couple of 1983 models.
One belongs to our friends Steve and Nancy who we met last fall in Capitol Reef and the other to our new friends Dorothy and Mikio. I have to say, with a little bit of care, these Lazy Daze rigs can go on forever!
I wonder if we'll still be in Cholula Red in 2033???
Time will tell.
Once again, we learned so much.
I think after looking at the upgraded lighting in Steve and Nancy's rig, I'll be switching out our halogens for super bright LEDs. I've been hesitant, because the cost is pretty high. But after seeing them in action, I'm convinced that they can give as much light with such an energy savings that, even with the high initial cost, it will still be worth it. When I get this project underway, I'll give you particulars here, in case any of you RVers are interested in making the switch.
Another thing I'm planning on writing is a small piece explaining electricity in an RV. Now, this won't be for you of you who know anything at all. This will be for the very rank beginner. The reason I'll be doing this is, the subject came up several times, and it seems that most people who try to explain 12 volts, chargers, generators, batteries, inverters etc, already know way too much, and just can't seem to dumb it down enough for us beginners.
It seems, since I only understand the very basics, I was able to explain it a bit to several people at the get together. It was suggested that I write it out for the blog, so hopefully I'll get to that soon.
I also have some pictures I took during our trip (not as many as I hoped, but hey, I was busy visiting!), so basically, this entry is just to touch base till I get around to really making a posting!
