Nice looking Coachman Rick. Looks like it's in great shape on the outside and interior.

I was coming home from Nashville last Sunday and stopped for fuel. A Coachman pulled in behind me. The owner said it was a 1995 with 150K miles. I could tell he and his wife have had many enjoyable trips in their Coachman.

A friend of mine has a Roadtrek with no generator. He has a portable Honda 2000 that he takes along when he boondocks. I think it fits in the back of his rig (below the bed).

We appreciate and thank you for your service.

I drove my RV about 200 miles.

First road trip. About 13 MPG... not too bad to start. I bought some cleaning materials and looked at some generators. I have a white RV and I'd like to see it shine!

First I will knock off the dirt and clean it up some and then I will start doing the routine maintenance and checks. Changing the oil and filter, the air filter, plugs, plug wires, PVC valve and anything else I can think of.

It only has about 37K miles on it so I'm hoping for many many years and many miles of good memories.

Take care,

Rick

Rick - speed can really lower your gas mileage. I've spent my entire working career driving and always seem to be in a hurry. 40k to 50k per year so slowing down is tough for me to do but I'm trying to stay on the 60 mph range with my RT and get 16 mpg.

A friend of mine has 230K miles on his class B so we both have a long way to go to catch him.

Today I cleaned the oil spill on the driveway while the rig is in the shop for four days getting the leaks fixed! She'll be ready Monday afternoon. But... In the past year I've done a lot of work, almost completely rebuilding the interior.

At a Habitat for Humanity build in Dade City, FL. After drywalling all week, thought I should do some RV maintenance (7000 miles since we left in September). So I'm washing and waxing a section at a time (as the sun moves) alternating with ample breaks to read.

Last week, I got the Air Conditioner recharged. Mine is a 1990 and did not know it had been converted to R-134. It is less expensive. Ended up being $85 dollars after the misc fees etc. I am happy as I went all last year without dash AC.

I also went to go get my oil changed for the first time since Nov. 2010. They said since it only had 1500 miles since the last oil change that it does not need it even though it had been 16 months. I appreciated their honesty and left without paying a thing. They did top the oil off and said it is still clean. Me is happy and saved about 40 bucks! (I know everyone has their opinion about this...)

Sunday, I vacuumed it out.

Ours is a 2003 Trailite B+. 21 feet long.
So far I have added a Dual radio with the tilt-up screen to display the radio info, cd, ipod info and gps. I also installed a back-up camera which displays on the radio screen too. I took out the old television and installed a new LCD tv on a tilting mount so that the space behind can be accessed.

I did a bunch of stuff for the Wife like carpets, and lights and stuff but the first list is the important one!!
