We use a couple of lights with batteries in our Escape. All of the RV places should have them or can get them.

Unfortunately, Dometic will likely tell you that any warranty work must be done by a qualified technician. After a long argument, they did make an exception for me when I told them it would be to their benefit to let me replace the latch which involved removing two screws that to reimburse one of their so-called service providers over $100 to do so. But I had to say "Really. You don't think I'm capable of using a screwdriver. I'm not talking about replacing a major component here."

With you on this Carl; bigger ain't better- but unfortunately its becoming the new reality. I am surprised(but not really) that Rbryan could not contact Dometic to get a interim fix that Reace ultimately provided. When I contacted Dexter regarding a brake locking problem they were fantastic! Instant access and were not control freaks about how I got the problem resolved.

The M&A (mergers & acquisitions) thing is this: most companies that buy up competitors to gain a competitive advantage end up worse off than before they were before the merger.

Great photos, keep 'em coming!

My wife has family up in Portland area, so we've been up there a lot. Almost always we plan a side trip up the Columbia gorge. It is so beautiful, with the waterfalls and river and dams...all so beautiful. Nice side roads along the way. We particularly like the area just south of Hood River, where the pear orchards are. These photos make me itch to get a trip planned. I even think the overcast and dampness adds to it all, makes the colors stand out more.

'Past Tents' First Journey

Finally we left the rain and cold behind! Camped at Crooked River Ranch near Terrebonne OR. So peaceful and quiet here. The area is teeming with wildlife. Took a short hike to the canyon rim (don't get too close) and just by walking I flushed out several quail, rabbits and several large birds.

By the way, gas in Oregon is much higher than I expected, averaging 60-70 cents more per gallon than back in Texas. Well, at least the mileage is good.

Fuel is going up in Oregon. I paid $2.55 a gallon this morning. I liked it better at $1.85

More photos. They warn you not to get too close to the cliff edge. Apparently there have been collapses.
