    Enjoyed your blog - you are a good writer! I like the details about all the things you have had to deal with on your coach. We have a class C coming off the assembly line soon and will begin our journey. Thanks for sharing your story.

We planned a trip for the presidents day weekend to run up to Durango Colorado and get some skiing in. Nice long weekend, great for a quick trip.

Dilema;
Take the coach or drive and get a hotel each way???

16 Hours drive in my truck 18 in the coach.
75-85mph in the truck, 65-70mph in the coach
12.8 MPG in the truck - 8MPG in the coach
Additional fuel over hotel costs???

We decided to drive my truck and...

Well its wintertime in Texas. For those elsewhere that means we will have days like today at 70F then in a week it will be in the Teens.

About a month ago I drained everything thinking (100% incorrectly ) that this would be enough to get us through the winter if I kept the heat on. We had a pretty good freeze early.

Pretty sure this is why the HWH bypass valve failed.

Replaced the HTH Bypass valve then went online and bought some stuff on Amazon..I...

When we got the coach a few months ago we did the usual walk through "Tour" then we were waved goodbye.

I had a pretty good idea of the depth of the pool I had just jumped in, I knew the water temp and thought I could recognize the hazards..

I remember this like it was yesterday, (For those with a Fleetwood Discovery you may want to take notice here),

During the new owner walk through, I was shown how to open the pull out for the generator....

Also the pumps machines were down so you had to go inside. While waiting to pay with the other 5 truckers, a few other "truckers" came in bitching loudly about the pump blocking RV driver ME,,,, I spun around and told them very loudly that I was in line to pay just like the other...

Well, I think there are different types of MH families;
1. FT'ers
2. Store at CG (part time'ers - Weekend'ers)
3. Store off Site 'ers
4. Store at Home 'ers

We are Home'ers; DOOOH

Once we decided to get a coach (cant call my coach a motor home, sounds to much like mobile home ) I knew I did not want to store it off site. Out of site out of mind. The more I see it the more I want to use it. Our neighborhood has no restrictions...
