    • We measured it today at 50 1/2 inches. Just saying. If you stop by some day we can measure mine to see what it is.
    • Kirk we would have loved to take you further into the bush and shown you "real" boondocking. But that would have required more time and a "real" setup. Next time! For those interested in what is now quite common in Australia Google ' All Terrain Warriors Australia' on Facebook. Another source of what is common in Australia is Molly Dixon on YouTube. Ignore Molly if you can but look at her setup. No her RV setup! Yeah I know it's hard to take your eyes off Molly but her rig is a very typical setup. No a/c. No shower. No toilets. But lots of fun. Keep in mind that just like food, we all like something different.   
    • I just bought an LG TV and am really surprised at how good the picture is. If you want to turn the TV into an actual All in One computer I got one of these a few months back and thought that since you were talking having an old computer and replacing the monitor too since you already solved the monitor I'll put this review in because the micro desktop is perfect for that use in RVs for those so inclined, and take up zero desk space in most installations but that is up to the user. Morefine is making a micro computer with all the bells and whistles and the new faster small form factor replacement processor the Intel N100. I bought the 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD version. It comes with a bracket to mount on the back of TVs monitors, projectors. I screwed the bracket on. and hung it on the back of my 28" Monitor. It uses the latest SSD the M.2 NVMe drives and can be upgraded to a 1 TB SSD But it is cheaper and easier to just get a 512GB SanDisk USB A 3.1 drive. I use them on my Surface tablets that came with only 128GB or 256GB SSD. The inexpensive system: https://www.amazon.com/MOREFINE-M8S-Computer-Windows-Ethernet/dp/B0C99CNZSH/ref=sr_1_5?crid=2OTRK8CJXFIPE&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.1x8LMCxhfUfQXSsoJsb63i5XunrwOF2spKGGpXT17A9YnBgukx2WIaVWb1pOJhno.eMjW24-r3EwHiAD7V9UA9_81QkyAYNvYOUSZDH5IdCk&dib_tag=se&keywords=Morefine%2BM8&qid=1713656960&sprefix=morefine%2Bm8%2Caps%2C117&sr=8-5&th=1 Mine: I just put the standard size mouse in for size. It comes with all the screws and the bracket needed to mount it. It has a Power supply too that uses a USB C plug so don't think it has a USB C port from the pics. It has three very fast USB A 3.2 ports and HDMI etc. The top just pops off with my fingernails fairly easily and has plastic tits all around to hold it securely. You can see the 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD one screw and easily replaced or upgraded. There are loads of specs, pics of the ports etc in the Amazon link. My hand over the micro PC with the cover off, it is tiny! It can do 4k streaming and videos as well as anything I threw at it. I use a Logitech K400 combo keyboard and mouse and that is the USB you see inserted in the pics. I also use a Bluetooth speaker from WalMart, a $15 mini with a passive radiator on the back that makes it very pleasing for testing and using on the workbench. I have medium size hands and it fits in the palm of my hand, literally. It boots fast has great graphics and is very peppy even six months later. I have no idea why it has two Ethernet ports but it has strong WiFi 6 radios and works great anywhere in the house. To me it is the best bang for the buck for non-gamers and streaming/email/music/surfing. And the Logitech K-400 can be used from anywhere in the room. These pics were when I first got it so have a Soundlink Min I replaced with a Soundlink Flex upstairs and the Onn Wally World one I use on the workbench now. I thought it might be helpful to you and others looking for a cheap and easy way to upgrade computers in an RV. You can mount the unit on the wall or the TV/monitor, but I would prefer easy access to use and remove USB devices and keyboard USB dongle etc. and cables for HDMI or Ethernet easily, instead of a major removal and reinstall each time. I will be putting it behind our new six months ago 75" Quantum dot nano cell LG TV next. Also a high recommend for a stix n brix
    • I wasn't having issue with a doctor taking my medicare or a walgreens to fill the meds, I had a problem with a doctor that doesn't return phone calls or text messages and doesn't understand or care about the full time lifestyle.  I have since found a doctor that understands full timers and actually cares about patient's health. 
    • In 13 years of fulltiming, we never had a problem finding doctors that took our Medicare Advantage plans except for one that didn't take Medicare in any form. We've seen our NY PCP for the past 20 years, and she's been very helpful in finding specialists wherever we happened to be when the need arose.We get our prescriptions from Walgreens, and haven't found anyplace yet where one wasn't relatively near by.
