    • Have looked at them.  I’m not a pro woodworker, just a “ piddler” as my dad used to say.  The Grizzly remains looking good.  I’m reworking my Craftsman now.  Found one issue I’ll detail later.
    • rynosback, sorry you can't make it this time. But do stop by when possible!
    • I know it is expensive but, have you looked at the Saw Stop. My Hubby would not purchase anything else. The contractor grade is portable within that price range.
    • There are no Dish receivers that are "designed for RV use" just as there are no DTV receivers "designed for RV use", Bob. It's much too small a market to warrant that kind of development investment. The Wally was designed as a replacement for the previous VIP 211 series single tuner receivers, and while both are popular for RV use, neither were designed with that use in mind. There are many S&B residences with basic no fee VIP and Wally installations where those models fit the subscribers needs and/or wallet. 
    • While this isn't to your question, it is related. Long term dry camping is something we do often, we only use our own bath facilities, so I wanted to maximize the amount of time before we had to dump our black tank. My solution was a Thetford Electra Magic 80 Marine Recirculating Toilet. The two of us in our small 29 ft. Class C can "go" from around say at least 9 up to 13+ days before we are "full of it" and have to dump lol . The difference being if were in a remote soil/sand/wooded area where the gray water from the bathroom lavatory sink can be discharged to the ground versus if it goes to the black tank. Despite that our other more limiting factor is fresh water which requires refill maybe every 7 to 8 days or so. With our 950 Solar watts and 416 Amp Hours of stored battery energy plus backup genset we like never run out of electrical energy. My goal was to be able to dry camp in one location at least a week but by then I'm ready to move on anyway so we are fine...…….. If others require more time and capacity (Black, Gray, Fresh Water, Energy) I'm sure there are tons of other options, but a week in one place is plenty (maybe to  much lol) long enough for our chosen lifestyle, to each their own.
