Well the A/C in the lounge started raining again yesterday during 1st day of drive to rally. Used large pan to catch most of it since it was miserable hot. Had the windows open for a while but just to much. Put the rear one on when we got to camp ground with fan blowing fwd. today after we arrived in Hot Springs Took the cover off and my temp repairs were there from last time. 100% humidity and really hot this weekend.... Great and no A/C. Well took the drain line out and tried blowing through it. Only a little air would get by.... Hmmmm so I got out the air hose, hooked her up and put some real air through it. Cleared right up. Went out and there was a piece of tempro caulk below the line. Went back in and took off the nipple fitting from the catchment pan and looky what I found.

Dug as much of it out as I could to open the drain again. Hooked it back up and she is running like a champ and dumping water on the OUTSIDE now!

Great rally and unbelievable gas (diesel) millage

We had a Spectacular 5 days of camping/rally! We headed North by north west (hehe) to Hot Springs Arkansas. Did an over night at Tom Sawyer on the Mighty Mississippi river outside of Memphis with some fellow Aistreamers.

Then on to Hot springs for the Rainbow rally. Met up with a fellow 350 in pristine condition! A great time was had by all and the MoHo ran flawlessly! Worth every penny I have put into the mechanical systems (fuel system, steering system, rear air bags, engine mounts, bell cranks, steering stabilizers etc). It all meshed and became one. Only got 12mpg on the way up; highway 65mph+ 2350+ rpms. But on the way back we took the scenic route west of the Mississippi river on county highways averaging 55-60 mph at 2100-2200 rpms. And the MPG.... Wait for it.... 15.3!! I checked the numbers twice!! That is better then my 2500 got pulling our airstream trailer! looks like it will be 2150 rpms for us from here on in! It was easier to drive the MoHo for 450 miles then my car. Granted the MoHo has a toilet and ice maker and a beautiful co-pilot to get me drinks and snacks.

I don't know about a plan coming together, but it sure felt good taking it on a 1000 mile week long camping trip with minimal issues!

Thanks so much guys! I really appreciate that. As you are experiencing on your recent trips, the real joy is driving the coach down the highway and camping in it! My number one tip to all is to get your rigs on the road! Make the drivetrain mechanicals reliable and get your major rv systems working. Don't worry too much on the looks. Get out and use it, that's what they were meant for. Work on the "pretty" as time and money allow. Happy traveling!

That's my attitude also. I try to keep my projects prioritized and well planned and staged. I've never had it out of service for more than a week. Mechanical integrity is top priority. The cosmetics will come in time.

That has been our goal as well. We wanted to camp in it before we did to much so we could judge the flow. As a point we have decided to ditch the lounge layout we thought we would like no that we have had movable chairs put in it. Made some annotations on the brown paper floor to work off of once I finish the bathroom.

Almost forgot. The best thing we have put in it to date was a domestic stand alone ice maker. What a treat having lots of ice for drinks and such!
