Any trip with no troubles is a good trip.

Sounds like you had fun and that is the spirit of it all.

May all your future trips be trouble free.

Happy trails.

when I go that far and dont have one problem it worries me. I feel like my coach is ''sneakin' up on me with some kind of ''grand slam'' hiding around the corner. I have had some very long trips with very ''little problems'' but I always have something wrong. Like this last trip to the New River for tubing. Not a problem in the world except the stinkin check valve on the city water tap stuck open and we pumped all our fresh water out of the tank on the way home. I said ''shux'' real loud. Willa caught it just is the tank went dry when she tried to get some water out of the tap. NOTHING CAME OUT and the pump was running. She checked the level and it showed empty and we always carry at least 25 gallons when we travel.
NEVER TRUST A COACH THAT HAS NO PROBLEMS. IT IS SNEAKIN' UP ON YOU............
Be safe ....

What kind of RV do you have?

I'm with Seajay... when I go too long without a problem I start getting nervous.

Sonny, with all of these replies you can really start worrying. We just did 17 states with only 2 problems, a small oil leak and a bad ground in the power seat. Oh-and I fixed the door lock, and found a small leak on the driver's window, and had the windsheild resealed because of an air leak, and fixed a leaking extender on one tire, and my main elec awning has to be adjusted, and the trim piece on the bedroom door came loose, and the floor trim on my new laminate floor had to be reglued, and a snap for the windshield cover came off, and two nut covers for my wheel liners came off, and the screws for the access panel to my air filter stripped, and....

Wow, Sonny. That's 1 state every 1.65 days.

Sllooooooowww doooowwwnnn...... you will have even more fun.

We have had two relatively long trips and did the same thing. Not next time. We are picking a destination, or two, and staying days or a week at each one.

As for no troubles. You WERE driving an RV...right?

Don

Hey...there ain't nothing like arriving at the Freightliner service center in Gaffney via a heavy duty wrecker and I certainly said a big "shux" while sitting on the interstate exit ramp waiting for the tow. Nothing slips up on me, hits me upside the head every time.

BTW...the folks at Freightliner Gaffney are the best.
