? Pilot & Navigator Seat Covers?

Any & all recommendations, comments, etc, are welcome. Want to get comfortable, well-fitting, driver & navigator seat covers for the coach. Internet searching shows me only one selection that may fit: "Grip Fit Universal RV Seat Covers" available at Camping World and Amazon. My initial reaction is to shy away from these because one of the reviews says they're vinyl and I can't think of anything much more uncomfortable to sit on than vinyl.

? Housefly/Flying Insect Trap for Coach?

Any recommendations? Looking for something better than the fly ribbons we used to use when we had the 5er - used to be no problem hanging a somewhat-shortened fly ribbon with that high ceiling. We're in a coach now and there's no way we can use the same fly ribbons with that much-lower ceiling. Non-options include anything that gets glue- or sticky-tape stuck in the RV like those stick-on window sticky traps.

What have you bought from IKEA for your RV and how well does it do what you want it to do?

? Quartzsite Auto Parking and/or RV Park Recommendations

Recommendations, opinions, comments, whatever. Anyone's 2c welcome. DW hip surgery greatly limits how far and fast she gets around ("not very" on both counts). She wants to experience Quartzsite 2020 but doesn't want to participate in any hiking treks to get to anything.

RE: New coffee maker

For years we used this Coleman stovetop (or campfire) drip maker. Works great. https://i5.walmartimages.ca/images/Large/926/392/999999-76501926392.jpg

RE: Wasps in camper. Best way to remove?

Whatever you do, do NOT try spraying them with Off or any other insect repellent. Yes, voice of painful childhood experience.

? Atomic Beam Motion-Sensor Light

DW got one of these at WM thinking it'd be a good addition to the RV. I suspect she's right (as usual) but have a couple of questions. Is the light so bright it's going to wake up the neighbors whenever a skunk or coon walks by it in the middle of the night? And how does the stickum hold up to traveling? https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/c4efb21b-edb7-41cb-b3b4-9bdb4be5aeb5_1.fc9cd99b911504011067cb4a9db54e1b.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&odnBg=FFFFFF

? Inverter Ques

Search unsuccessful. Inverter "mentioned" but operation not covered in walk-thru (didn't know it had an on-off switch until a funny noise got me to looking for the source). Should we leave the inverter "ON" all the time or are there times it needs to be turned off?

? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

Does Ford motor provide enough heat/air for comfort or do you have to run the RV heat/air for comfort?

? Loaded Dinghy Ques

What's wrong with towing a loaded dinghy? Saw a photo of a towed dinghy with a couple of canoes or kayaks on the roof with the "Do Not" circle and slash superimposed. Probably saw it on Pinterest, but couldn't open or enter whatever the site was for an explanation. Got me to wondering what would be verboten about us dolly-towing our dinghy with our kayaks on top. ?

RE: ? Instant Pot Questions

Thanks, all, appreciate the comments. Will pass on to DW. Whatever she wants, don't matter to me. PS--WanderingBob...think you're wandering a bit too far.

? Instant Pot Questions

Your opinion which is "best": The Original Instant Pot or one of the other-brand knock offs? For the two of us, is the 3qt 'plenty big enough' or do we 'really want' the 6qt?

RE: ? Pot & Pan Set w/Covers

Thanks All! DW says she'll try the Michelangelo set, likes that there's a cover for everything but the small fry pan and likes the non-teflon noin-stick surface.

? Opinion/Thoughts - Dolly or Flatbed Trailer for Dinghy

Solicitation for opinions and thoughts about pros and cons of towing the FWD dinghy on a dolly or flatbed trailer. Either way, tongue and tow weights are well within RV capability. Opinions and thoughts about flat towing are irrelevant.

? Scouring Powders/Cleansers & RV Septic System

What effect, if any, does scouring powder/cleanser have on RV septic systems? I'm thinking there's no effect on the pipes or holding tanks, but that gritty stuff could well effect an RV's holding tank valves. Lunch time discussion brought to mind the way my mother used scouring powder (and boy did she ever use the stuff!) which got me to wondering about its effect on RV septic system valves.

RE: ? Winnebago Surprise & Question

Vista LX 35F. Per lunchtime call to Winnebago this and many of their other models do not come with a CD-DVD-Bluray player, and it isn't Winnebago optional equipment. Instead, the RV is wired for cell/tablet streaming and comes with several adapters for different makes of phone/tablet/whatever. Addendum to my original misleading post. The media center doesn't have a gaping hole where the DVD player would go, there are two punch-out plates, one for audio-video other for satellite. Dealer carries three different brands DVD-Bluray and would give me one but they're all too big to fit in the media center 'hole'.

? Winnebago Surprise & Question

What CD-DVD-Bluray player(s) fit in the Winnebago "media center"? DW & I got a big surprise viewing Winnebago coaches over the weekend: there's no CD-DVD-Bluray player inside, and the inside TVs don't have a slot to accept disks (the outside TV does!). There is a hole in the "media center" for a player, but apparently it's entirely up to the buyer what to have installed, there's no recommendation from Winnebago.

? Pot & Pan Set w/Covers

Recommendations? Looking to get DW set of non stick (NOT teflon!) pots & pans. Something like the orange (ceramic?) she has in house & loves. Must have cover for each pot/pan. Interchangeable okay. So far haven't seen what I think she'd like at box stores or amazon.
