Well, my 120 mile mini-trip was a fun time. I sure enjoy driving the coach and another week and we will be heading to Yosemite.

I finished most of the tasks I wanted to get done for this next trip. I even pulled the coach control panel above the refrig and changed a couple of bulbs. Now I have a "Panel On" and a "Water Pump" light! Sweet!

I only had enough paint to do one mirror, but at least I finally did get one of them painted.

Just remember to start slow in first gear and stay slow down those hills around Yosemite. I had a nasty scare with breaks starting to overheat and go soft on one of those hills...one of the main reasons I love the Allison 6 speed and diesel exhaust brake- you can go down crazy steep hills forever without touching the left pedal.

That's always good advice! This will be our fifth trip to Yosemite with the motor home. The Chevy 454 and Turbo 475 tranny with disc brakes all around does just great. On those long steep downhills, I use second gear and apply the brakes for short periods of time. With this method, I have never had the brakes fade and have only smelled them once.
