Brian, this, like many forums, consists of the exchange of information, ideas, and opinions among other things. As I see it, my posts in this thread have been a reflection of my approach to RVing, which in my mind should be an enjoyable/fun activity, and that the most important priority to ME is being comfortable, which can mean a whole lot of things (staying dry, feeling secure, not being miserably hot or cold, etc.)
My statement that "it confuses me ....," the key word being "ME," was a summary of my approach to RVing or, if you like, a statement of my opinion. Taken in context with the rest of my post, it was not critical of anyone else or their choices, it was a statement pertaining strictly to MY perception. SELECTIVELY quoted and taken out of context, any statement can be manipulated to mean something entirely different from what was intended. I would believe that people purchase a luxurious camping trailer rather than continuing to utilize a tent or the back of a station wagon for reasons of comfort as I did. And I chose options to ensure comfort under any and all conditions because, in MY opinion, that is what is important.
I (they key word is "I") fail to see why my clarification of a statement pertaining to MY opinion which was (again in my opinion, yours may differ) taken out of context with the entire concept I was expressing returns this thread to a productive discussion.

Not humidity. Top white controls the heater. Otherwise correct, Jim, but actually, what I didn't realize was both Acurites use the same frequency, so for outside readings they both read the same remote, the one closest, that's in the fridge. (Who knew?)

I like the upper one better because the display is big. Will probably remove the lower Acurite and relocate it near the dinette.

I love this forum but hate when people become oversensitive when others have a different opinion.

You mean like almost everywhere, whether on the internet, or not.

Having met both Ron and Carl, and having good conversation with both, I can honestly say both are great guys, who's broad regional differences just provide them with different perspectives and opinions. Not a big deal really.
