My 2 cents on DVD/CD... If you want music think iPod. I'm in my 50s and got an iPod some months ago. These are the greatest things since the 8 track! My thought is that if your getting a DVD player or some other electronics just check that it has auxilary inputs in the back. I have LOADS of music loaded on my iPod, Loads of pictures and even some video. Plug it into a sterio, a boom box, or my garage sterio and I have my ENTIRE music collection in the palm of my hand. I have a 30gig iPod and the wife has one and I also have a timy shuffel iPod and got one for mu daughter. There the way to go for music these days.
2 cents ...peace out...
Dave

Great ideas.
I have the same model and year too Love it.
Just recently I mounted a 13" lcd tv in place of the seating area light on the cabinets on the kitchen side of the trailer. Managed to run cable inside the wall but still have the dvd and power cables on the outside. I'm thinking of running it off the 12vdc as that's what it's power supply puts out but am worried that I might fry it if it can't handle the voltage range one gets when using batteries. The tv is mounted using one of the brackets designed for mounting tvs and is very secure. Negative is that it's only viewable from the seating area. Positive, I can remove it and put the light back in and not have any extra holes.

My trailer came with a stereo and dvd player built in, both dc. For music what I do is use my ipod and an fm transmitter which allows me to listen to it in the car when travelling and the trailer when parked, or use headphones when outside.

The antenna mentioned sounds like a good option, something I've been looking for too.

One thing to note, I had the manufacturer install a hot water heater last year, silly but I really missed hot water at my finger tips, at the same time they put in taps and upgraded the pump as they said the pump that just works the toilet wasn't powerfull enough for the taps too. Might be good enough for just cold water though, certainly would be better than that silly hand pump.

Cheers,
Steve

I usually put in this same suggestion... if you have a portable computer, use it.

I have noticed that the portable DVD players with really tiny screens have become stupidly cheap. If there isn't a laptop around the house already, and the tiny screen is acceptable, it's hard to beat the economics of a US$78 or Cdn$99 solution!

The only problem with laptops is battery life, usually about 2 hours plus they are usually noisy with the fan. With a DVD player you can get 12 hours on the better models and they are silent. I have a laptop and we got the DVD player for the trailer.
