Running out of fuel

About 20 year's ago I almost ran out of fuel in my Chevy Silverado Diesel. Ever since then every new truck that I purchase I drive up to Transfer Flow in Chico, California and have a 50 gallon tank installed in the bed of my truck. It is totally automatic. Problem solved.QUOTE=BirdDog;1818915]I have had my 25' FC for a year and this is our first trip. After driving for an hour or so, I stopped and checked on things. When I went inside, the kitchen faucet was gurgling. I had left the water pump on and the trailer vibration caused the kitchen sink faucet to turn on. Fresh water went from 100% to 0% and grey water went to 100%. First lesson booked.

Towards the end of the drive, thought I could make it to the next exit before the fuel alarm light came on. Didn't make it. I pulled over on the side of I59 and got my 5 gallon spare container of diesel out and poured it in. Not sure what happens to a Duramax if you run out of diesel (probably not good). I was not interested in trying to purge the air out of a diesel on the side of I59.

We are camped out in Fort Payne,AL and headed to Nova Scotia via Wilkes Barre,PA, Norwitch, CT (King Arthur Flour),and Freeport,ME (LLBean 24-7). Expect to be in Marion,VA tonight.

We were recently in Cape Breton and stayed at Whycocomagh Provincial Park. It was quiet, beautiful, well kept, and clean, including the bathroom/showers.

Checklists; Checklists; Checklists

Joel and Jane[/QUOTE]

My wife and I use checklists (laminated copies in passenger door pocket; extras in Airstream), modified somewhat from those in Rich Luhr's 2016 Newbies Guide To Airstreaming.

Decided to use checklists in these situations years ago after watching a 747 instructor pilot on 1st glider solo land with semi-retractable landing gear up. After we teased him that "it wasn't at work" he explained that at work the non-flying pilot reads the checklist - alone he didn't do one!

Printed pre-takeoff and pre-landing checklists for my sailplane that night and always used them, mounted in view on my instrument panel.

Really enjoyable sharing your trip Birddog. Being a visual person the pics are great, worth a thousand words.
Truly beautiful country up that way.
Sounds like you found the cooler weather to your liking.

Again, nice photos. Thanks

Cheers Richard

There is a common bond among campers. I've motorcycle camped many nights over the years, and spent a fair amount of time on motorcycle websites. Many motorcycle campers speak with frustration over the slow RVs on the mountain roads, and "why do these people need all that stuff" type comments. I always reply it's different, but still camping. Many of us pulling our campers, are not in a big hurry, we are enjoying the trip just as much. Different types of camping both very enjoyable.
I'm enjoying this post BTW!
