To Arkansas.

Headed toward Ft. Smith, Arkansas on Tuesday... Tomorrow.

Hope we can make it to Canton, TX for first 'day' on road... then push into Fr. Smith on Wednesday...

Have to be there by Friday... then turn around and head back on Sunday or Monday..

I'll be thinking about y'all and streaming while you are dreaming... appreciate all the help so far from all the good folks here... send your good thoughts and prayers for a safe, blessed journey...

Peace...
Channing

Howdy~
Home safe on Tuesday. Stopped on Monday to visit Grandkritters 4 and 5.... stayed in Texas RV Ranch, nice folks...clean, well kept, in good repair.. just need trees and grass because it is all gravel.

Trip had challenges..
- some very 'jarring' roads
- a good deal of 'porposing'... as TV crossed humps in road and AS reacted...pretty severely a few times... pucker factor 7 or so..
- Gas WH kept going into 'protect' mode... (I removed, cleaned reinstalled the burner tube, igniter and sensor probe assembly. Debris/webs/bug parts in the burner tube even tho I cleaned it about a month ago..
- Can't reliably run AC and Electric water heater.. pops shore supply breaker
- Can't reliably run AC and wife's 16 Giggawatt hair dryer.... unless she plugs into a receptacle in the bedroom instead of bathroom
- Power center/breaker box runs fairly warm...when loaded up.. up to apx. 112 degrees (will check breakers for snug and proper install)
- AS 'settles' and BAL stabilizers need reset after 5 days in one spot on gravel
- Cheap 'auto windshield shades', the stiff, reflective ones, are about $2 at Dollar General and you can cut with scissors to easily fit inside with a little pressure so they stay in the 'skylights' to minimize daytime heating...
- Geese and ducks on the property preferred to rest under the AS and never ventured under the SOB's..
- SOME of the drawers would not stay fully 'in'... when travelling...

Any recommendations on how to address these? probably need a "air hitch" like I've seen on here...????
