Thanks Vinnie, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Mike in case you haven't noticed we are not real fans of the desert. We like trees and water.
Here is a recap of our trip.
We went a total of 16,301.4 miles in sixteen weeks and four days. The GPS showed our average moving speed was 42.3 mph.
We visited thirty-four states and four Canadian Provinces.
The most expensive diesel we bought was $4.73/gal and the cheapest was $3.52/gal. I don't want to know out total fuel cost.
The only mechanical failure on the coach was a compressor for the dash air. I did an extra compressor swap because I failed to check belt
tension. We did use the dash air about 90% of the time we were on the road. The blower fan started making a funny noise the last two days.
We had a brake issue but again that was my fault for failure to check the fluid level. Adding brake fluid solved the problem.
I did replace one head light bulb that burnt out.
I did have a few strongly worded discussions with the water heater. It was difficult on occasion but I did take a hot shower everyday. The issue
of a replacement is still on the table.
Speaking of water the Flow Pur water softener we bought was great and we enjoyed soft water showers the entire trip.
We liked the MaxxAir fan that I installed before the trip so much that I installed a second one mid-way through the trip.
The cork floor I installed was not so good and will be replaced as soon as I get a chance.
The drivers and passenger chairs purchased from Discount Van and Truck were very comfortable and after sitting in them daily for many hours I
would recommend them to anyone looking for replacements.
We used Woodals and Camp Club USA books to locate RV parks. After Labor Day we were able to use the Camp Club 50% discount about 50% of the time. The $50 investment was paid back many times in savings at the parks we used. Our routine was about 4:00 pm Irene would drag the books out and start looking for a park. A few phone calls and we would choose a park.
We picked up guide books and maps from AAA offices as we traveled from area to area.
I hope this information is useful to anyone contemplating a trip or maybe considering some modifications or upgrades. If anyone has questions or
comments feel free to ask.
Again thanks for following our adventure, I hope you enjoyed it,
