Exactly. If we had not had the '05 for eight years, we wouldn't know the difference.

That is simply the result of my superior typing skills.

We plan to come the CanOpener as it is looking like we will be in town at that time. We live along 30-A about three miles east of the Topsail Campground. Due to another commitment, Lucy will most likely be in Jacksonville then, so we won't be able to attend with the Airstream. We hope that it will be alright if we come over there without Lucy.

We went to the the first three CanOpeners and have not been able to make it back since. I wonder if we can register and then show up without Lucy.

Without Lucy, why not just bring a "can opener"!

We are now in the process of making another change with New Lucy. As you may have noticed, New Lucy has not yet gotten her WBCCI big red numbers. There is a reason for this. We are possibly in the process of changing our WBCCI number. We have had 3628 for nearly ten years now. It's not that we don't like this number, it's just that a special number has possibly become available. The special number in question has not been renewed for 2014. WBCCI holds an unrenewed number of one year before putting it out to be reissued. We have talked to the WBCCI Office, and they are holding the number and will issue it to us if it is not renewed by the end of the year.

What is this special number you ask? The number is 2678. Why is this particular number so special? SuEllyn and I have a very odd situation. Our Social Security Numbers have the same first five digits. The chances of this happening are quite slim as we grew up in two different parts of the state and were issued these numbers when we were teenagers. This has always been an issue in our lives as all sorts of forms and applications are regularly returned to us assuming a typo on our Social Security numbers.

We won't know for sure that we will get 2678 until the first of the year. If not, Lucy will just stay 3628.

The office was very accommodating in letting us request our number change as well. Good luck!

It has gotten cold enough here in the Florida Panhandle to turn on New Lucy's furnace for the first time. It works well, but has a slight odor that is setting off the smoke detector. I have now run it for a couple of hours and the smell has mitigated to the point that it is no longer setting off the smoke detector.

Along this same line, New Lucy's heat pump works effectively at much lower temperatures than the units in Old Lucy and Little Lucy. Last night it got down to 31°. New Lucy's heat pump was set at 60°, and it was a relatively warm 60° in Lucy this morning.

In the previous Lucys, the heat pump would generally give up the ghost when it got to around 42° outside.

With the heat pump running do you still notice some of your vents not expelling air?

With the heat pump running, it is the same story as the a/c. The three front left vents are not expelling any air.

When our Classic was being built, I saw the duct work was crossed within three feet of coming out of the furnace They set the kitchen cabinet on top of the duct work as it was. They said no problem with that crossed duct work. Our test run had no heat into the bedroom area.

Showed dealer photo of problem area and they were able to uncross the duct work without removing the cabinet. Now there is heat.

I wonder if something similar may have happened in the ceiling of the New Lucy?

I guess that it could be something like that. I don't have any idea what type of material the ductwork in Lucy's ceiling is made from. Looking up through the vents with s flashlight, all I can see is aluminum ductwork near the vent. I have tried to remove the duct screen for a better look. The covers don't seem to want to come off. I can see metal clips holding the duct screen. I'm afraid to apply too much force as I might damage the Lucy's ceiling.

I sure like the idea of ducted A/C if it works right. Our old fashioned A/C is noisy, but so is the ducted furnace. A problem with the furnace ducts is they are the flexible kind and the ribs in it causes a lot of air turbulence which makes a lot of noise. It is cheaper to install flexible lines because no special skills are needed to install ducts, but the result for the consumer is not good. I don't see any reason to trade. We like the double sink in our '08 FB and the other things no longer available.

I wish they had provided for a whole trailer filter instead of the undersink one. We use an exterior one too. It keeps some of the silt out of the water heater and faucet strainers plus filtering all of the water rather than just the sink cold water. A filter for both city water and the fresh water tank instead of the separate filter we have would be a real improvement. Those filters are cheaper than the undersink Moen filters too.

I'm with you, Gene. I miss Old Lucy's double sink. The big round "washtub" was a crummy upgrade. So was doing away with the 12 volt outlets and the good TV antenna.

New Lucy now has her LED lights installed in her various windows. Here are some pictures of her light show.

You guys liked those little double sinks? We thought they were way too small, and really appreciate the big deep sink, but you have to adapt to it.

The big round sink in our 2013 25FB International Serenity was metal and thus slightly more durable. The double sink in the Classic is Corian and more likely to become scratched or damaged. We were able to find a round dish washing tub in the UK for the 25FB. We found a small rectangular one for the Classic in the States.
