Terry,
Rig looks great. Yes the front of the trailer needs raised. Glad that the knee check up went well. When you get your plans finalized for Jay's, give me a call, or a PM. We will be somewhere between Manchester, Tenn. and Stockton, Missouri before we hed to Jay's.
Lloyd,
Give Debbie, Rita and my best wishes for a quick and painfree recovery as possible.
Popeye,
As I have said before, you ain't wrapped right, and we love you for it. You really keep us all on our toes and laughing the whole time.
Frank

Texas, welcome to the thread, and thanks! glad that I might in some small way inspire someone to tackle a project . This forum has alot of very knowledgeable people so if you run into a snag just start a post and ask away.

Terry, pictures of it all put together look great. I was wondering about Jay and Oklahoma also. I will be there in Woodward on June 28th to see if I can help with getting things ready.

A bigger TH'r Oh MY! Terry, then you will need a bigger Tot'r, then a bigger:fac epalm:
It looks great, hooked up! A little fine tuning on the height, and a bigger turbo, some more fuel poured to her, she will be fine!! Get the exhaust flowing with the dual stacks, and she should come to life! How many miles does the Tot'r have on her? Looks great, now, wait till all the paint is done! Wow! Rail!

How tall is the Tot'r?

What about lifting the TH?

Would the A/C unit still be below the height limit if it was higher than the Tot'r?

Looking good anyway,

Rich

Good Morning, Thanks to everyone, it is certainly long journey and it ain't over yet! Rail, it never ends........I know when I drove semi and another truck drove around me I would think if I only had a bigger engine, Hmmmm. Now I have to find the money for the bigger Turbo, a pump that'll flow more fuel, of course bigger injectors and stacks........a few thousand should do it LOL. Rich, the Tot'r is 11' as it is right now, I still need to install an air conditioner on the roof which will add another foot give or take. The TH already has the axles under the springs, plus I wouldn't want to raise it because it would make the ramp steeper. I knew it would happen as soon as I got the TH out, the weather is turning cold and SNOWY yup the next week after today is going to be cold with snow showers and rain, Monday could be more than a little, oh well.

The power problem sounds serious , I'm sure it will take YOU at least 2 or 3 days to get it sussed out !

Now to the important stuff.................
NO SNOW , NO SNOW , NO SNOW , NO SNOW , NO SNOW !!!!

MK
YW , It's just the chorus and only took me about 30 seconds after reading your last post.... you could have come up with it , you know more about you than I do so I'll let you finish the verses

Terry and Eleanor,

I think back to when you first started the TH, how long ago was that? I was just getting started with this business, looking for some info, trying to learn what I needed to know to make my first RV purchase.

Learned a lot here and was just fascinated reading this thread. Reading all the different interactions and suggestions hasn't always made sense to me but I have enjoyed it.

I am glad you posted your rebuild. Thanks for doing so. I plan to keep watching to see what you are going to get into next. I think we all know this will not be the end.

It hasn't been as long as some might think considering what you have accomplished. Now it is time to enjoy them. Have a great summer if the warm weather ever gets here.

Lynne
