  1. Thanks for all the input people, appreciate it I new I would get some good answers here
  2. Yes , I do have a temp gauge for trans. This locks out the high gear ,with overdrive on rpms are a lot lower.
  3. Kirk, the gulfstream specs are Year: 2014 Make: Conquest Model: 218MB Ship Weight: 3,710 lbs. GVW: 5,720 lbs. Hitch Weight: 400 lbs. Length: 22' 7" Fresh Water: 30 gal. Grey Water: 37 gal. Black Water: 37 gal. and the Ford is a 5.4 Triton V-8 with a 4 speed auto. Thanks for the input.
  4. I have a Ford F-250 super duty that I have been pulling a 21 ft. gulfstream with for a year, on long flat sections of road I had been putting the overdrive on thinking about saving gas money and all , my neighbor who has been doing this a long time says never to use overdrive that it kills the engine overtime. I am at a loss why as it does not seem to be straining or excessive downshifting. So putting this out there for all the pros. Overdrive or not?
  5. Thought someone might be interested
  6. south to I-10 just like 2gypsies said. I-40 gets shut down whenever there is bad weather and always accidents
  7. Kirk, Have a cocktail or glass of wine on El Tovars outside patio at sunset. Stroll though Kolb Studio as they always have a art show downstairs. Lounge in El Tovars lobby especially if the fireplace is going. We are always on the lookout for the Condors and Elk and have been spotting Bighorn sheep below the rim. If you bicycle there are a lot of great bike trails to cruise. Rim trail is great for just walking and wildlife spotting. Bright Angel Lodge has a room with some nice old history of canyon. Take the shuttle out to hermits rest,many stops on the way. This is all free stuff to do except the drink on the patio.
  8. Check your pressure relief valve, they love to leak.
  9. Kirk ,tested fuse is good as bathroom lights still work which were on same fuse as exhaust fan. Scratching my head on this.
  10. Good morning all , my fan switch (on/off button broke) so I unhooked the wires from wires feeding it power now the red light is on in the fuse box but changed the fuse even though other looked good and everything is working in rv but light in fuse box still on.Would removing the fan from loop cause it to sense an open circuit? thanks still figuring out this 12 volt stuff.
  11. Thanks so much we are still fairly new at this but my wife has started keeping records also
  12. Do you have any idea of cost?
  13. All it says is RV parking is what I could make out sort of faded,was hoping someone from the forum might have stopped there.
  14. We just got back from southwest Colorado and saw this sign just outside of Dolores,Co ,beautiful spot for dry camping on a what looks like private land right on the river. We took a few pics as we went by but still could not make out info. Does anyone have info on this? Thanks
  15. I have the 2 6v Trojans and on our last two 4 day dry camping trip ,I have not had to use my generator at all. we have the led lights and are aware of saving power but I will listen to the radio a lot during the day,watch TV for a 1/2 hr. or so and do what ever we want for the most part. Our friends who have the 12 v. seem to running there gen a lot though albeit I think they watch more TV than us. We do use an inverter though. HTH Forgot thats with charging all devices throughout the trip(tablets,Ipod and phones)
