Martha and I went to the Chicken Chew in Coloma, Wi. on Saturday evening. It was kind of a bust because it was in the mid 50's and windy. We missed the car show, watched a bit of community volley ball (elimination tournament), had a great Lion's Club rib dinner and decided (DW decided) that it was too cold to wait for the fireworks show.

It was a typical small town festival with the bully drunks in wife beaters to the overdressed socialite trophy wife wearing all leather and sporting...

Martha and I went camping Monday of this week to test the modifications, repairs, replacement and additions we've made since last December.

Our campsite this week was Withrow Springs State Park, Arkansas. We really enjoyed this place. There are only 30 campsites in this park so, should you want to go, book early after school is out and on holidays.

The Trip Wasn't All Roses

In fact the coach is still at the park because the living room slide out once...

We are trying to find an economical solution to carrying both my motorcycle and our car (Read: I can't afford a hydraulic or cable lift plus the welding to install it). To that end we tried a very well built motorcycle carrier and it just won't work. The conclusion is that there just isn't enough room to get the bike onto the carrier because of the width of the bikes handlebars.

I purchased an adjustable pressure regulator and did my install today using a stand off to stabilize the apparatus on the face of the wet bay panel. I also added quick disconnect hose connections to make things easier when setting up or tearing down to leave. I know this...

As the title states our coach has a very loud jacks down audible alarm. In a diesel pusher this alarm serves as your "put the jacks up before you move the coach, you "dumb-arse" alarm. It has both a audible (under the dash) and lighted alarm (on the dash). In our coach the alarm is ear piercing. No, really it is, and many others have this complaint as well. The intent of the alarm of course is to make you put the jacks up prior to moving the coach. The problem with the intent of...
