Fireplace...Baby it's warm inside!

Oh yeah, our new electric fireplace arrived yesterday.  We love it.  Not only does it do a great job of heating, but (to our surprise) it actually looks pretty darn good.  The faux flames and embers while not exactly realistic.....are not bad at all.  
I know several of you have the "built in" fireplaces in your rvs.  We had that option, but we didn't think we would really need it and we didn't want to give up the space.  After spending two not-so-warm winters in the fifth wheel, we started to re-think that decision.  Fortunately, we found the portable unit to be our solution.  It has a small footprint and I can easily move it around the room.  It will also be easy to stow when we are in travel mode.  You can get all the details by clicking on the Dimplex DS2205 fireplace photo on my Amazon widget at left here on my blog.  You are not obligated to buy will just take you to the website so you can have a look for yourself and read other reviews.
I had hoped to have some more photos on the Old Truck painting, but I spent most of yesterday on the phone with Epson.  My replacement printer never arrived.  I called to inquire and was told they didn't have any more refurbished units available.  I had two choices, refund or wait.  I requested and did speak with a supervisor.  I just felt the need to let someone know how utterly frustrated and disappointed I was in Epson.  In the end, I am sending the defective one back.  Upon receiving the defective one, Epson will send me another refurbished unit... if one becomes available during that time frame.  If not, then they will issue a refund.  I should have probably just taken the refund and be done with this, but everything I read says this printer (when working) produces high quality prints.  I read through a lot of reviews and there are a lot of folks who are very satisfied and happy with this it too much to ask that I be one of those "happy" customers?


  1. That fireplace looks pretty nice. Any idea what kind of power consumption it has?

  2. Just found your blog thru John and Ellen (Through Gates of Grace)and I'm glad I did.
    Our fifth wheel came with a fireplace which I thought we would never use...boy was I wrong! We've used it every night! I just know you'll enjoy yours! Besides, it looks so pretty!
    Blessings, K
