Shoulda shot the dog, or maybe more realistically the owner of the dog for letting him do that.

Heat is a wonderful thing in the winter!

WTH!
As my father says, "It never rains until it pours!".
Oh, add a dog bite to the fun!
Poodles are notorious for biting..
I got bit by a 100lb Bernese Mountain Dog3 weeks ago... My dog went for it(2 males and a ball saga), and as I broke it up, it bit me, instead of my dog! Still bruised!

Take your time and laugh at adversity... its a skill set you will need!

Kreimer,

WTH is right!

The dog bite has driven you straight up to first place on the list of "Crazy Maiden Voyage" adventures. Within just a few days of piloting a Classic, you have become a Legend. Please elaborate. I know we're all dying to hear the grizzly details. You will forever be in demand as a guest speaker at every rally and campsite gathering that you will ever attend. Although it's not really funny at the moment, I know you will be laughing about this journey for the rest of your life!

Make sure you get that looked at; and if you plan on stopping in any parks….
grab some bear repellant!

Battle on!!!

We are taking the inconvenient delays as a chance to really clean this beast. I think we may have the refrigerator smell conquered. It has been powerwashed, lysoled, odor ban'd, and wiped thoroughly. Now a baking soda thingy in there. Have tried it on propane yet but plugged in it works really well. The clock is hideous. Also had a weird plexi knife holder mounted to the wall. Can't wait to rip out this awful carpet... And the upholstered wall panels... Dusky rose is just not my color... Especially when splotchy with sun damage...

Cleaning mini blinds is a pain... I rather get bit... Cross y'all's fingers we get on the road with smooth sailing tomorrow morning.

You need this right now. Turn your volume up. (Adult language so if kids are on board take caution)

And the mofo deer woke up and bit me on the neck. Omg Mike that is so funny and fitting. Cracked me up.

It looks , Kreimer that you have tapped into the classic motorhome spirit and are now truly living it.

The rest of you trip will be fun to follow along with. Hope you can enjoy it too!

You don't care for the dusty rose? They sure did chose some interesting colors and patterns in the day.

Mike has the basketball dash color to die for. In his diesel beauty.

I spent part of yesterday trying to winterize for the first time, in already freezing conditions. Heater under the coach blowing on frozen valves , long hot shower to use up tank water and help thaw the pluming. The fixes we get ourselves into. (-;

Cheers Richard

Yep Peter, the old Moho route is not hard to follow it's lined with small parts and excess rivets and screws raddled off in passing . And, Yes yours is a nicely placed station along the well worn path.

Happy Holidays
Richard

On the road again!!!!!! Three fuel filters, ten foot of oddly sized fuel line, and a new electric fuel pump later. Also got the lp system functional and safe. One furnace works and fridge works. The filter in the carb was apparently full of sand. Click image for larger version

Full of sand... imagine that! LOL.

On mine, all of the fuel feed line was 3/8" and the return is 5/16.

Steve, are you sure the return line wasn't 1/4"? I'm pretty sure that's what I used on the 310 when I replaced the fuel lines a few months ago.

I guess I need to find my spare pump and measure it!

Considering there is no pressure in the return line I doubt that 1/4 or 5/16 line would make any difference.
