Too much stuff on the screen I guess! But I found the "New Thread" button!
I am not new to RVing (since the mid-80s), however I now (since June 2013) have my own rig...with no man along to control everything and shoot down all my good ideas
I've taken 2 shortie (1 alone, 1 with DD) shake-down trips in it, and DD and I went to MO in late Sept. for 2 weeks with our 5 tiny dogs (her 2, my 3).
We shared driving, and towed my Honda Element, which we were sure would blow up, or something at any time!
Plus the Winnie has a Banks Power Pack modification on it that had a loose head gasket on the manifold exhaust. Ford couldn't fix it in time for our trip. We decided to go ahead anyway, so we fiddled with window and dash AC configurations to keep the exhaust out of the rig. It worked, but was noisy as hell nonetheless!
We made it back in one piece, for which I now have new found appreciation for the integrity of my rig
DD is starting grad school in January to be a teacher
, so I will have to go it completely alone (and 3 tiny dogs) on trips for awhile...a little nervous about that
but I am currently having some modifications done to my rig for safety and comfort, such as the installation of MaxxFans, and dually wheel liners with valve extenders so I can easily air up those tires.
I'm hoping the fans will help with the weak roof AC the rig currently has...No Bueno in the AZ heat!
Now I'm researching CB radios...scared of breaking down, and no way to make a call!
Thanks for letting me join, and look forward to interesting conversation!
