Just returned from 6-days in the GA mountains and have nothing to bi**h about! The Dynasty ran beautifully, everything coach-specific worked properly and she gave me 8.3MPG towing my trailer loaded with a couple of bikes and a 150QT ice chest filled to the brim with cool beverages (empty on the return trip).

Well, I do have one complaint (you knew it was coming didn't ya?). The Franks Voltage Booster keeps tripping out one leg. Gotta ask Frank about this cause the magic box is about to become landfill fodder!

Hope everyone had a nice holiday.

I`ve had a Frank`s 50amp booster for awhile -- I have the same problem you do -- The circuit breaker on one leg keeps tripping -- This is the 2nd coach that I`ve used it on, so it is not the coach -- Call Franks when I first had the trouble, & they were not very nice people -- I don`t even carry it anymore -- Bill Willard

It is sooooo good to hear of a problem free trip! It seems the only way I can avoid MH problems is to keep it in the storage yard!!!!

Hooray! What is a Frank's Voltage booster, and why do you need one with that rig?

Hey Bama...
Glad to hear that the trip was relatively trouble free!! Hope things continue to go smoothly for you.
BTW ...thanks for the heads up on the voltage booster ...sounds like it would be a waste of $300 !!

Hey Bsavage & Teofff.....

LOL, MM, no I hadn't noticed that. Great minds think alike, apparently!

MM....it's been said (by Gloria????) that I'm not the brightest bulb in the pack....but I did score 50% ...I did notice BSavage is from Cave Creek, (1 1/2 hours from Prescott)...but missed the fact that we registered on the same day.

That makes 3 of us from Arizona now as we live in Gilbert which is near Phoenix.
By the way, the dog show is in Prescott this weekend and Jeffrey is going with our Mastiff Surf. Snce I have the MH here in Ohio, he has to stay in the conversion van! Poor guy It does have a generator though and a separate A/c unit so he'll be comfortable.

We have been told there is a very bad outbreak of Parvo in Prescott. Be careful with your furkids!

Where in Prescott is the dog show? We volunteer with the Humane Society, and they did have an outbreak of Parvo a couple of months ago, but I have not heard of anything lately...

Surprise! We've been in Surprise, Arizona 22 years and we signed up on April 1. We almost have enough participants for an Arizona rally.

Well, perhaps if was only a little cooler here.
