    Sad and very irritating. We got out there for a very nice 3 day weekend at De Rust. In retrospect, even more glad that we took advantage when we did. I cannot even begin to imagine what it must be...

    Re: Portable 220V Lithium Power Pack

    We run 2 Resmed Airsense 10s on a 1400 watt lithium unit with integrated inverter. One night uses 55-60% capacity (leaving humidity and tube heat at low settings). So extrapolating, I would think...

    The standard mattress is terrible. We used a friends for a number of weeks. He added a topper from TakeALot, makes a huge difference, but won’t fit inside - has to be carried in the vehicle.
