Just had some friends "move out" of the Allegro today after spending a week out there. It's now known as the "Guest House". There were 4 of them - employees/owner of an interior decorating company. They did a ton of work on our house during the week and retired to the Allegro at night. I was a bit apologetic about having to stuff them out there but they LOVED it. They set up folding chairs like a campsite and we had fires in the backyard pit at night. That's the fun stuff.

The not so fun stuff is explaining RV stuff to non-RVers. Like don't stand there with the fridge door open. Make sure you close it tight. I cringed watching them leave the water run as they cleaned stuff knowing I'd have to drain the gray tank. Black tank? Forget it - it was overflowing today. Heat comes from a finite amount of fuel in a tank mounted underneath - when the heat's on don't have the windows open and a/c on. All in all it was cool being able to host them in the RV.  

I got the Sewer Solution to work, too. I'll post a follow-up in that thread.

Jim, seems like the "guest house" came in right handy.  

They are a great resource to have when the need arises. I originally bought my Motor home so i could visit my kids up north without putting them out while I'm there. As I got more into it I find I really like being able to travel and still in a since be at home. I haven't done much to up grade it but that sewer solution sounds like something I may be interested.
