Lucy is back at home in Santa Rosa Beach. We towed her back yesterday under mostly clear skies. We got her tucked in her spot at the house last night.

Today, I defrosted Lucy's refrigerator for the first time. It has been on continuously since we got her on October 2nd. There was some frost, but not more than a quarter inch on the back wall. I have turned it back on again. Hopefully, it will be back at operating temperature in the morning.

Brian

Fred, I have the 25FB and have been eyeing the GMC 2500HD. You has a post that said you got 14.5 MPG while towing? I get 9 (nine) towing with my Chevy Avalanche. What do you get without the AS? PS- I haven't named my AS... is that bad luck?

Chase, we bought the GMC inIllinois at Laura GMC largest dealer in US. Had 92 2500HD on the lot. They sell about 28 a week! We average 18.6 for 1300 miles at about 70 mph on the way home. Impressive.
We have a topper and a bedside on order should arrive this week, that will limit the bed crawl routine I hope.

Gary,
That Classic is a Beautiful piece of art. I understand they can't be ordered currently do to back log.
The Classic is why we bought 2500 to pull 25fb, just in case we feel the need for more room.

Flying Cloud 25FB

I know this has a built-in pressure regulator, but does this model or any of the Flying Clouds have built-in water filter? Thanks in advance for your replies!

New Lucy has a built-in replaceable water filer under the kitchen sink. It comes with a filter replacement pipe for use when the system is winterized.

Keep in mind that the internal water filter under the sink filters only the water to the kitchen faucet. We also use one of the big blue external water filters to filter all of the water coming into Lucy from the city water connection.

Hi Brian,
I am just starting to research the available under counter filter systems. What are you currently using in New Lucy? Also, very impressive waste disposal system as shown in your photo. Jim

Below is a picture of the filter that came from the factory with New Lucy.

Also, the waste system that we use is the Sewer Solution. We have been using it exclusively for the last eight years.

Thank you Brian. It looks like it is similar to the Hydro Life Undercounter Filter Kit made by Camco and available through Camping World. I Appreciate your input. Jim
