That is the first time I ever noticed those rounded cabinet corners. Maybe we do not need to stick up those rubber protectors for the corners except on the stove hood.

Greg,
Your roof looks like new, so shiny. I'm going to have to get the ladder out now....

I find that keeping the roof clean and waxed (or polished) reduces the amount of black streaking I get on the sides.

I'm looking for a ladder now for ease of access.

Helps that it gets to live in my hangar when it's not on the road. I treat it with UV stuff and after 16k miles, it seems to be holding up nicely.

What channels do you like?

Greg
I ran a wire through the upper cabinets from the dock to the JVC receiver. I could have used the FM wireless link between the two, but prefer a wire.

I also ran a 12V feed to the radio since I needed an "always on" line to keep the radio's settings.

As to channels, I listen to the public radio channel, classical radio, and the CBC. I have a few others programed in, but rarely listen to them.

This was discussed in another thread. Suggest hunting it down, good info.

I don't want to start the UV discussion again here but here's my 2 cents worth. I bought a 5 year old Casita that parked in the same spot most of its life. The sunny side got chalky and the graphics faded and started curling while the shady side stayed shiny. UV treatment IMHO is a worthy chore. I use a product called BTS for the shell and Armorall UV gel on the graphics. Available from Amazon. There are other products to consider and lots of other opinions. Just mine here.
