Well we go on vacation (3600 miles) in 2 weeks so I'm a bit under the gun for time! It started on Friday with the installation of the Roadmaster baseplate on the CR-V along with the factory foglights. I can tell ya the foglights go on real easy, as for the wiring, that is a pain. Most of the dash and the driver seat has to be removed to install the plug-n-play harness. Also did the tow lighting harness on the Honda
Then an oil change in the MoHo and the gen, along with a complete chassis lube. I also modified the fresh water tank overflow with an extension and a cap or plug. It seems that we lose 1/3 of a tank of fresh water while on the road and there is no easy way to get to the overflow tube. Besides its completly surrounded by that sprayfoam that Monaco likes to spray EVERYWHERE!



Man am I tired now!

Chuck, good luck on your trip. You miht want to have the rig weighed to be sure you are loaded evenly and not overloaded. Take care and stay safe. We look forward to reading of your adventure.

I'd tell you to relax when you get underway, but 260 miles per day doesn't look relaxing to me. Stay safe on your trip.

We are going 3 days straight up to Washington for a couple of days to see some RV friens. Then on to Oregon for a week or so stop-over to see the kids and grandkids (there's a new one). Then we will be taking our sweet time through Idaho, Utah, and northern Arizona on the way back home.

I used to long-haul drive so 500 miles a day isnt a problem, but after 3 days of that I need a rest.
