Btw, I read every post, too. 'Fraid I'll miss something!

Hope to meet you at CL, Sarah. Gotta see that new couch....chair, whatever it is!

Cheers!

Sounds like it's time for some well-deserved rest, Sue! Safe travels to you and Martin.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and all the RVMs in April. Afraid the couch isn't new anymore, but it's still comfy. Feel free to test it out any time.

Mornin', Muteys! 🎶It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day....🎶 Any day we get to start a trip is gonna be beautiful, and here we go. 🌈

Slept in Bella last night so as to make leaving quicker today. The house is all shut up, and I always pretend we've already left. That way I don't keep running in for just one more thing ... and then another ... and another .... Most of the time it works.

What's funny is that Bella is parked in her shed with the doors shut. Only the shed windows tell us it's daylight, and the scenery could be improved. 😏 A lot!

Brekkers first and then we'll hook up the Jeep and GO! Watch out Road; here we come!

Snow showers are forecast for the coming weekend, so it's pretty good timing. But the rain in Spain ...er... Rockport ... may dampen things a bit. Things but not spirits. Where mutants gather, weather is always Fine. Even in April in Arkansas. Right, Tim? Di?

Can't wait!

Lily is definitely my social butterfly. Sena never left my shirt. When the little dog side of the park got empty we went over to play with the big guys. You should have seen her trying to sniff a Great Dane back side. She went over to the dog, looked up and then looked back at me as if to say, "Now how do I do this one?"





Rockport is a very progressive little town. There were plaques everywhere showing that individuals and businesses had contributed $ to build a fence section. It would be easy to become a Winter Texan here, but I think I'm allergic lto something that was in the air today.

I for sure need to find that one... Mine need some off leash time.....

Same here. With the Dually Valves you get a rubber disk that fits into the dual handhold that supports the inner wheel's valve stem which is a VERY GOOD idea if you have TPMS's on the end of the valve stem.

Safe travels Sue and Martin and all Mutants on the rainbow.

We are stowing and throwing again today. Looks like we won't head south until Wednesday. Just so much to do. Later on mutants.

Anywho, we've spent the weekend watching our twin GD's playin in an exhibition tourney for college scouts. Good news already! Arkansas, Texas Tech and McNeese State have them on their 2018 boards. McNeese called their dad (our Son) this evening and told him they were their top two hopefuls for 2018 class and would be making a scholarship offer right after Christmas. Not bad for a couple of Freshman but then we are obviously biased.
Herb, as Steve would say, they must take after Barb Either way, you still have bragging rights....CONGRATS

We pretty much love Bonita and I suspect no matter the size - we would be in the same boat. It's not easy to consolidate everything into a 10'x12'x8' foot store room and a 38' motor home. I have talked to several who have done it and it seems we all go through this process about the same way.

Seriously though, we did buy Bonita with full time in mind so she should be fine. Don't tell anyone - but Annie has brought so many nick knacks and decorative pillows we could open a store.

She loves the RVing life as much as anyone I know and will find her comfy place with things in the next 48 hours. We have a CRV that can carry some too. That will give us some time to decide. With 3 or 4 months coming up in the RGV we will work it out for sure.

But who knows - a Prevost may be in our future. 😁

Sarah get with me by Pm before you call so I can give you a space # to give Stan when you do call. That's the first thing he will ask you and be sure to tell him your with the mutant group too. Space #23 is next in line and closest to the Pavillion if you want that one.

Here's my story and I'm sticking to it: I have a 6 gallon 150 psi compressor. I tried using it for my 110 psi tires but it was so darn slow. I had to let the tank build up to the 150 psi, then put the chuck on the valve stem and "bump" the air into the tire. Then back off and repeat the process. It took forever for me to get 4 to 6 pounds of air in the tire.

So, since the 150 psi, 6 gallon compressor would not keep up with the volume I decided to try the on-board compressor that is used to provide a 125 psi braking system. I don't know of any MH with air brakes that does not have a fitting for a tow truck to hook up to and release the air brakes. That is the same fitting used to inflate my tires. I can put a 1 psi of air in my tire in about 30 to 45 seconds. So much faster than the 150 psi 6 gallon tank.

My story, and I'm sticking to it.



Me 3 or 4. I read every post. I have since post 1. First thing in the morning I catch up, then in the evening around 10 p.m. I catch up again. Sometimes I catch up during the day. Just ask Earlene....no never mind, don't ask her, she'll lie.



Only from the house computer or the laptop when on the road. Phones and ipads are to small for me to bother with.
I bought a compressor at Sears. In fact, it was recommended on this site about 2 years ago. Its pretty light and mobile also. A 150lb compressor for $99. I think it does about 3-4 lbs in 10 seconds. I believe you would have to start your engine to use your onboard?
