Found this post and wanted to save it. Thought this was the appropriate place!

The Pod has returned for the winter (I hope) There was a seal that was allowing the snow in. So we brought it to Camping World and they fixed it (still under warranty) It cost us the gas and wear and tear on Pod.
In the last few months I have found a few forums that I enjoy. and I have also looked around at I have been asking all kinds of questions and the people that frequent those forums have been great to answer me. I wondered about leaving the Pod pluggin in ....... well I got more than one lesson on converter and inverter. And still know NOTHING!..... So I decided I would ask at Camping World. No luck there. I actually found the converter and the service guy knew about as much as I did!!!..... I took pictures of it and DrFife from myrvtalk found out for me :) Yeah thanks to him.

We also decided it was time we weigh the Pod. Figured it would be a good thing to know. Again, the service guy from Camping World didn't know about the scale....... (think he was fibbing) but we figured it out. And the Pod weighs 6100 pounds. That is kind of empty............ so we will reweigh it when we are loaded for camping in April.

So we got it home........... put it up on wood and cinder blocks and put the tire covers on. Not coving it this year (warranty again) And we plan to use it and do some work in it over the winter. I like a bookcase i saw on one of the forums that was in the corner. IF I can find that I may attempt a shorter one. I want to move the glasses and put a dish rack in the cabinet. And really want 1/2 the booth out. Still looking at that. May get some storage bins for where the recliner was. I don't want anything above the window.

Right now the curtains are in the alteration shop being fixed. Can't wait to see them when they are done. Putting them in the bedroom too!!!

Another thing.............. have been in contact with Leonard & Sondra from St Louis and meeting them for lunch on the 27th when we go up. I am so excited about that!!!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!!!!

Spoke with Camping World today. It seems there is a seal that has rolled and cracked on the emergency window. This will be fixed (under warranty) and there has been no other damage. We were concerned about water where we wouldn't have normally looked for it (behind couch) They have assured us that there was no water damage inside the POD. Pick up date to be determined.

My thoughts about winter time modifications..We come out of our 1 year warranty on 27 March SOOOOOOOOOO.................. We have already removed one of the recliners ... we found we weren't using it. Going to put some storage boxes there and then cover them with a tablecloth............. or even the cushion from the bench :) because I believe I am going to take out 1/2 of the booth. And get 2 chairs. The only thing we stored under there was extra tarps. IF we need that sleep area we can make a pallet on the floor :)
I am going to move the glasses to over the television. Then I am going to buy a dishrack (the kind that only hold dishes) and put it in the cabinet where the plates are. Right now I need a stepstool to get plates. I think this might be easier. We have an extra table top that Jeff is going to cut to fit over the stove ..... have that measured now if we could just get a bit of heat here. Also going to make a tray to use just one pole of the table. CONSIDERING bringing in a heavy duty extension cord through the hole where the power cord comes out. Not sure if I want to do that. Need to figure out the satellite.............. would like it in both rooms.

I like the idea of plexiglass in the screen doors......... and a screen door latch.

that is it for right now.

Welcome Winter

12 December 2010

Last night we had our first storm of the season. Not much snow but it was windy and very cold. Got up this morning and when Jeff went outside this is what he saw:

Since I don't think snow is supposed to be between the window and the screen inside tomorrow I will call camping world. I do have an email prepared to send to them with these pictures attacted. I don't want to have to take it down there because when we got it ready for winter we just put things in the Pod............. not secured or anything. We did take one of the recliners out. We found we weren't using it. I am going to get some storage bins for the same area and cover them with a brown tablecloth.

On a different matter----- I have been playing with the cast iron lots. Pancakes with fruit--- french toast-- roast--- souffle's most everything has been good. I didn't like the cream cheese in the french toast will take that out the next time...... no more cereal for us!!!

Reservations have been made through June........... now working on July. Would like to attend the Dutch Oven Gathering in South Dakota. It happens to  be on our route and at the right time.

Stay tuned for more adventures from Camping World.
