Hope to meet up with you someday.

Other than this - the only mechanical issue we had was the VGT. Good Sam covered it!

My light bar is set in the following order

Turbo Boost
Trans Temp
Engine Temp
Speed

Can't remember after that... lol.
Trip Distance if I remember to reset it. And Trip Fuel I think...

Two things. First, we are staying for one night at Cicada Springs RV Park in Killeen, TX. We stayed here 4 years ago and we can say without reservation that this is a great RV park. If you are coming through Killeen, give Cicada Springs a stop. Rates are good also.

Second: Before this trip we had the Safe-T-Plus steering control - steering stabilizer added to Citrus. What a difference in handling. Just effortless now. My main reason for adding it was for control should a front blowout happen. They have some good videos on the web about Safe-T-Plus. It was well worth the $$.

As Sena learns to bypass a safeguard, I have to invent or invest in something new to defeat her innate foraging instinct. I can't discipline that out of her without instilling great ongoing fear and no creature can thrive in such an environment. The only other way would be to cage her whenever she isn't leashed to me which is also no way to live.

If I was forced out by someone else's incompetence I would threaten that they would have us as house guests. I can guarantee that we'd be back on the road before nightfall.

Now if we added Sena to Papaw Steve's suggested group of rowdy kids and threw in some gooey, sugar-loaded snacks and drinks... I see land speed records being broken.
All I can say is...
The is no way to install brains in people. Not even Sena can do that.

And this particular shop makes you either leave your coach - or drive it into the dirt shoulder outside their facility to stay overnight. No on site sleeping. The lock the gate at 7 and you're outta there. Assuming you're in a position where you're drivable.

That seems par for the course unless it is a Coach Care facility.

If you need a bit of assistance with the process you can yell HELP or PM someone who has theirs like you would like yours. I'll start you off with step 1 -- click on "User CP" on the left side in the first thick green border at the top of this page.
oh, when I looked at yours just now... I noticed your 5 year on the roadaversary is coming up in just 4 days! Woot Woot!

So we just saw a Sena proof Rainbow Rider. This guy is a real mutant! Look closely and the cushion below the flying saucer...

BTW - Dave...
This is not the type of place we plan to visit any time soon. Once today was enough. Barb was right, there was a nightmare trying to get into our lives... oh the HUMANITY.

We've floated down the Salt River, AZ many times in the past, and I recognize the yellow stripe on that "Cushion". I wonder if many of the river float providers use the stripe. Hopefully he walked back up the road to his truck for the "free cushion"...

This is not us...

I thought the same thing last night. Really nice to have all that experience on the rainbow.

I wonder how often he takes that thing out for a quick flight

Hey, you're right! I probably would have realized that around 6/1 without your help, Marty. Thanks! It sure seems a lot shorter than that. I'm on my way to my daughter's Seattle back yard for the 6th summer. Anyone notice that Rainbow time moves at warp speed?

Do you think that ship can fly if he goes down an 8% grade doing about 80 mph? Not very aerodynamic, but I do believe Sena proof.
