    You guys make me want to keep my OLD Holiday Rambler Presidential. I believe my minor problems pale in comparison. Replaced the Landing Jacks this week. ShortyO

    Time for insurance renewal

    I am Insured by American National. Local agent who works to get me covered. I believe that an ANPAC agent is a corporate member of ESACPEES. ShortyO
  5. I have enjoyed visits to "Golden Spike Tower" in North Platte, NE and the town of Minden, NE. The Golden Spike Tower looks over the Union Pacific Bailey freight classification yard while Minden is a Huge Museum of early Nebraska. See you in Hutchinson, ShortyO

    Dave, I expect the road conditions in South East New Mexico did nothing to soothe the "Mr. Cob". US 285 from Ft. Stockton, TX to Roswell, NM is TERIABLE. ShortyO ps we are at Sundance RV Park in Cortez, CO.

    10 Speed Autoshift ain't so Auto any more

    Paul, I had the exact same cooler failure on my truck 3 yeqrs ago. The Roadranger transmission was a Fuller invention in the 1950's. When I was a truck mechanic in 1958 they had 2 sticks. Later they went to a button to change ranges. Shifting one of the older Mack's with 3 sticks for the transmission was really fun to learn. The most sticks I ever saw in the floor was an Oil Field IHC with 2 transmission sticks, 1 Brownie stick and 2 winch stickst. hen it had a winch control knob on the dash. On top of these it had an air starter. I quit mechanicking for a living when I joined the US Marine Corps in 1960. ShortyO

    Coolant Lines

    I lost an AutoShift due to the transmission cooler rusting thru and dumping the transmission oil onto the pavement. The truck came from Eastern Canada. ShortyO

    The Heavy Haulers Resource Guide & HDT Rally Site

    Mark, I would like to add BS Trailer Sales 1900 East Wyatt Earp Blvd. Phone# 888277-2537 Dodge City, KS 67801 to the trailer repair list. The service was great, swift and the owner was quite friendly. We broke a spring just west of Dodge on Saturday. I called and left a message stating what I needed on Sat. Monday when I called to confirm if they could take care of me they said" I thought that was you sitting in our drive". Anyway they replaced two springs and had me on the road by 2:30pm.Great people to deal with and fair prices. ShortyO

    Quartzsite, RV parks, big rigs, wife retiring.

    i was talking to Dave (Georgis Hybrid) about "Q" and he said they were going next Jan. Seems that they were going to boondock south of town on Free BLM sites. MP 99 is south of "Q" on the road to Yuma. ShortyO

    Thanks Pete. While pondering the situation with a fellow RVer from home, that is what we thought also.
