We tinted the back windows today after going to a nice 2 hour test drive (w/o problems).

She's looking sharp and now staying cool too.

The wife and I took the Titan to a 4 day bluegrass festival in Cumberland, MD for its first outing! Its about 120 miles from home and the drive went great. It pulled really well up the mountains of 70. We averaged about 5mpg.

Also pleased that we had no issues with the water or AC.

Sounds like all of your hard work is paying off. Hope the bluegrass festival was a good one.

The Titan went on a weekend excursion to a Dukes of Hazzard reunion. It was only 120 round trip miles, but good to stretch it out a bit. It's still running great!

Couple weeks from now and we'll be at RIR for its first NASCAR event.

It's been a while since I've updated. NASCAR RIR was a blast. I didn't take any Titan pics, but we did get a buddy to wear a Danika shirt!

Averaged 5mpg and it ran well. Small exhaust leak on the right manifold that I think is leading to some fuel issues after its warm and its idling at a stop. Vapor lock maybe? It will shut off and won't restart for 15 or 20 minutes. Gonna fix the leak this winter and adding rear air bags.

This past weekend, the wife and I took the Titan from Washington, D.C. area down to Nelson county Va. It was a 3.5 hr drive down 81south. We ran about 55-60mph and still averaging a solid 5mpg. I was parked next to another Champion owner! The Titan was certainly the oldest in the lot, but it was a huge hit.

It got cold enough to test the furnace. The blower runs but it never fires to make heat. Another winter project along with the hot water heater. I'm thrilled to be at the point of 'small' things like hot water and furnace. Wife gave the Titan 9 out of 10 stars on this past trip! I think she's hooked.
