Steve:

We have a house available and I moved the stacker trailer out of the building, so you can park the coach. The house has a yard for your children. You have to park next to big white turd, thats what Matt calls it.

See what happens when we go out to eat? Inside voice???ha

Installed new inverter yesterday, took Day's advice. 4500wts pro sine, plus new batt.s

It was a little dicey but things look much better now. It smells like smoke up here and we have to use the fan at night to keep the smoke out of the cabin. They closed the trails yesterday so I cannot go out and find out where the fire is and how it looks.
I went to the coach yesterday to ensure that all was ready just in case. It sure is nice to have a place to go.
Steve

I don't want to be a preacher but two Firefighters died in the Station Fire. My thoughts are now with their families and those who are threatened by all of the Fires.
We were going to go to the Yucaipa area in case of evacuation but now there is a Fire there as well, I have canceled any plans to go that way.

Steve, you are welcome to park in front of our home for a few days if need be. You would have 15amp, enough to run one A/C.

Read about the firefighters....went off the road in the mountains...tragic.

thanks Clarke that is really nice of you guys. We feel a little safer since there is now a bit of insulation with the fire at 95% containment. Right now we will stay put.
thanks again

Heading up to Mt. Baldy RV Ranch this Friday for Labor Day....we'll be at 4500' elevation. Right near Mt. Baldy Village. One of the few places you can get into this Labor Day without reservations.
