I need to get familiar with all of it's operating requirements.
We are still waiting for ours to arrive we have the new Yamaha 2400i with the propane conversion coming. We hope it's here by then, they said they were shipping it out last week, but I've heard that before from them. We can only hope.

I just upgraded our Honda 1000 to a new 2000. It's coming along with us.

Question Should we bring ours?

There will be "limited electric" at the Trois-Rivieres Fairground. I'm thinking that means our batteries will be charged, is this right? Leon installed an inverter in "The Tube" two years ago and we run his C-Pap machine, our LCD TV and satellite receiver with it and he also just finished installing Fantastic Fans which will run while on batteries. I thinking the only things we won't have are the AC and the Microwave. Our Honda 2000EU isn't big enough to run the AC and I rarely use the Microwave (mostly use it to store potato chips in) so I thought we would reduce the weight we carry by leaving the generator home. Am I missing something?

Oh, I guess I would not be able to light my tacky birds or my tacky awning lights. May need to rethink the generator thing.....

We just got a second EU2000 with the parallel kit. It works really well. We are planning on bringing them.

Talking Wow, what a caravan

Maybe we can get a shot like this one of the NE Express Caravan to Trois-Rivieres! This photo is from the Sierra Nevada Airstream Memories website.

It's makes the best bread box . I throw whatever I don't have room for in the cabinets and it seems I always end up using it as a chip and bread storage box.
US Carb has promised to get back to me today about my generator so I'm hoping that we will be bringing it with us. I would like to try it out while we have everyone around.
Also,if we are in a hot spell of weather and are parked on asphalt it might get a little hot. Decided to put Griffin in a kennel in Littleton, NH on Wednesday morning so that we won't have the worries of heat and leaving him behind when we go out touring.

I would expect typical rally electric, 3.75 amps per unit on average. Of course, with the exchange rate that is probably only about 3 amps.

Update from Claude per his email

Hi Gail

There's no problem to park on Sunday August 21 for early parking. Probably
water & electric should be available at that time. You will have to pay
$15.00 for each nignt before the rally.

For the vintage trailer with no wash water tank we expected to park them in
a special place.
You can drop this information on the thread.

Regards

Claude & Jocelyne (#23285)

I'm thinking a battery charger cable just might be the thing to pack with this.
What with all of those "lighted" pink birds flying around...
