How Would You Spend around 3- $5 CB
Heavens knows there are plenty of ways to spend CB's!  We spent MANY, nearly what we paid for the coach, in "preventive" investment after we bought our well-cared for rig (details in previous posts).  Now after nearly 2 years and 12k on the road...

Spendung 3-5cb on this coach is not needed as it is good as is. Use the money to have an extra trip to Europe.
Have over 400k miles on my BA executive club so that pays for the 1st class seats so money goes for a week's worth of rooms etc.
Will be...

I'd probably buy a few shares of Amazon stock.  Been a consistently good decision so far.  No fun, I know.....

I added a fourth battery to my old u270. It was easy and cheap and extended dry camping.  A blow dryer or toaster are big drains so I would not upgrade for that alone. Turn on the generator and save money.

We will be upgrading to solar soon and the lithium batteries at a later date. Hope to do most of this install myself to save a few coach bucks as well!  lol   More boon-docking and less staying in packed in parks.

I'm saving the CB's for when I really really need them. Fortunately, I have been very lucky with this coach. I use the generator for things like the AC, microwave and pizza oven and save my batteries. I get by fine with 500 watts of panels and...

re: #3.  Extreme step conversion - On my 2005 U270, Extreme was not able to do the stepconversion. Apparently it will work on some models, but not others. They did perform an excellent complete repaint and they did the roof. Great people to work with

Since you do a lot of dry camping, I would do the solar and lithium batteries.  Made a huge difference and more importantly kept the DW happy as she is able to use all her electric appliances anytime.
