    • Howdy Jim, When its just me and the dogs, we can travel for hours before having to stop, when Donna is with us we have to take regular potty breaks.  Its common for me to drive 5-700 miles a day stopping only a couple of times, when Donna is with us we stop about every 100 miles or so.  When behind the wheel I just get in a groove, crank up the toon's and watch the world slide by, passing other trucks going up the hill is just icing on the cake.  Someday I suppose I'll have to grow up, if I am lucky I won't be around that long. Dave
    • 2001 Volvo VNL 64T660 Customized as a private truck for pulling heavy 5th Wheel RV's! with a lifting bed designed for Smart Car- Can Am Spyder or RZR900  $42,000 OBO. Full History since this truck left fleet service at 535k. Truck now has 634k and has been enjoyed by three Escapee RV'ers and is ready for the next. Previous Owners may be contacted with advanced permission required.  The tires were just replaced in the Spring of 2018 with 6 new all position tires. Air conditioner has been replaced (2015) and annual inspections have been done as well. Interior improvements were done by 2L Custom, includes a trucker fridge, microwave, overnight sink & RAM computer swiveling work table. Large and tall drom box, 6500 QD Generator, 3000W Inverter, 100W solar panel w/ controller keeps batteries topped off, custom bed by 2L Custom Trucks.  Henry S upgraded and installed the ET Hitch System (2014) and the truck has the Jackalope Conversion System.   There are three 12' loading ramps 2k rated from Discount Ramps (Loading deck is designed for a Can Am Spyder). My wife Robin and I are downsizing to become seasonal campers and travelers looking for a smaller rig now. "Gar" (previously named "Joy Rider") has been awesome and is ready to keep on work'n for several more owners before it ever gets close to an overhaul.  More details, dimensions & pictures available as well. contact me at 520-405-9125 or email me at stippey47@gmail.com 
    • Just wonderng who you retiried with? I was with 3M Co. and they have worked hard to protect their retiree benefits, even after problems created by the the ACA.
    • Welcome to the Escapee forums! There are blow out plugs available for RV water systems but they won't get all water out of the tank but do pretty good for the water lines. In all RVs that I am familiar wiith the water line leaves the tank such that about an inch of water remains in the tank after all that can be drained out has been.                                       
    • Just a couple of years after we left the heath care plan was significantly reduced.  The company also tried to reduce our benefits but "the judge" didn't buy it.
