After creating a long list of must fix, want to fix, like to fix and cool to fix. I spent some $$ and did the following.
I had the fan clutch and Alternator replaced, as well as the dash AC recharged. Installed a new kitchen vent cover, had the generator tuned and new points installed, replaced the refer, ran new lines to the front airbags, and installed an aftermarket cruise control. I added a transmission cooler in Dallas as I was towing back a trailer full of furniture. Just got back today, 2400 miles and no troubles. Dash AC ran all the way, ran the genset most of way there and back, and the engine temp stayed in the "safe" zone all the way there and back.
I guess that all I can say is that the money spent on maintence and upgrades was well worth it as the trip was mechanically uneventful. As the commercial says....priceless.
