Canyon Star from San Jose to NJ in 6 days

Hi all

I just got home this morning after driving my Canyon Star from San Jose to NJ in 6 days (3,664 miles) avg 65 mph. Over the whole ride all I had to do was put gas in the RV. I had 2 days of over 1,100 miles - yes I slept very little on those days (the first and last). The only issue I had with the RV was when I got home the bedroom slide would not open. I pulled, checked and place the fuses back and everything worked. So I am guessing it was a lose fuse. I will do a better summary once I start and then finish my xmas shopping. But it was a flawless ride on Newmars part.

Was this a test of the mh or your own endurance? Glad all went well.

You put new meaning to the phrase, the adventure is in the journey, not the destination!

Amazing on the 1000 miles, I've done 600, but prefer 400-500.
Sounds like an interesting endurance test.
