If only money weren't an issue. I love traveling in our AS, she is simply fun and we have a ball. I have spent today emptying her out and washing to get her ready to go to the storage parking place until our next adventure.
I talked to my Cummins truck shop and we are scheduling a full blown 45 point inspection when they do the bracket things. I might try to get them to skip a few of the points for some savings--I know which appliances work and which don't and I know the AC does not. I don't need to pay someone to tell me those things. Most other stuff is a mystery, despite the PO's meticulous records. I have no way of knowing if things were done properly and I'd really feel better knowing we have no LP leaks.
I also want to do things like belts and hoses and brake lines and anything else that likes to self-destruct while on vacation so we eliminate at least a few surprises for our next road trip. I'm just not sure we can fit that in the budget yet. They will also fix the jacks. I wish I had a driveway where I could at least poke around because I feel like so much of this could be done by us if we could just spend the time learning how and not run afoul of our city's code.
Anyway, thanks for the encouragement, comments, advice, and comiseration.
Our AS sitings on this trip: 1965
trailer at a gas station (pics to be posted later), two trailers off I75N, and being passed in Auburn Hills by a beautiful one. I drive like a granny. I don't know which styles they were but they were all neat and the kids absolutely love spotting them. They also spied one in one of the campground scenes in the movie RV.
