    Excellent description. Very nice right up.

    The campgrounds in the Park were not designed for big RV’s. If you have a decent sized RV you should stay in one of the campgrounds in Medora and drive into the park through the Medora entrance.

    Apartment laundry center OK in a rv?

    This may or may not be true. It depends on the type of power panel installed. Some 50 amp RV panels have the main feed 50 amp breaker in the center and then L1 feeds one side of the panel going out from the breaker and L2 feeds the other side of the panel going out from the breaker. If this is the case, then you can’t make 240 volts without some rewiring. If the main panel is a standard style panel with the main feed 50 amp breaker at one end, then there is no issue. In this case, each alternating breaker position after the main breaker will be L1, then L2. In this case, installing a double pole breaker to make 240 volt is quite easy and no different than doing it in a residential panel. This is what I have in my RV and why I was able to have a 240 volt dryer wired up from the factory. Of course the dryer will only work when I have 50 amp service available.

    Maurice and Ginny are great people. We hope to stop by there in our travels in the future as well. And I agree, their rig is an excellent turn key set up that anyone in the market should take a hard look at.

    I thought I would share this link to a very nice video Jim (ewacowboy) made from the WCR. Thanks again Jim, I really appreciate it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLFgRfxGYC4

    I like the Invisibrake system. It is always in the vehicle and once installed, takes no intervention from you to make it work. I have it in my Jeep and have been very happy with it.

    1998 Volvo 610 For Sale $27,999.00

    That is a nice looking truck. It should make someone a very nice RV hauler. By the way, it was nice to meet you at the WCR (even if it was only by chance that you were there). Good luck with the sale.

    Congratulations. Good luck with the new (to you) truck. Looking forward to seeing it next year.

    Cameras for truck/trailer

    Here is a Voyager system from RVcams.com. I have purchased equipment from them in the past and have been very happy with their service. http://www.rvcams.com/p/14/VOS74TQkit.html Here is Voyager’s new DVR system. http://www.rvcams.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=DVR4100&Store_Code=rvcams And this is the hard wire connector to go between the truck and trailer (comes in either a 2 camera or 5 camera version). http://www.rvcams.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=VOSBHC2K&Store_Code=rvcams

    Cameras for truck/trailer

    I will second the Voyager recommendation. I use them on my set up. I have six cameras in my system. Voyager is high quality and pretty idiot proof on the installation side (although I did recently see an installation of a Voyager system that I used the word idiot in a different context, but that is another story ). Everything is hard wired, so no wireless interference. I will eventually add recording to my system, but I just haven’t done it yet (for various reasons). Voyager makes an in line DVR for their systems, but I am interested to see what Pug did to record in his system.

    2018 West Coast Rally

    I made it home after about 12 hours or so on the road today. I had a great time and really appreciate all the positive feedback regarding the rally. For those of you who like to plan ahead, I have blocked Monday June 10, 2019 to Monday June 17, 2019 with Ambassador RV Resort for next year’s rally. We decided to bump it up to a week long event next year. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event and hope to see you there.

    I got up and watched a few rigs pull out this morning. Several of us are sticking around for at least one more night. I hope everyone has safe travels leaving the rally.

    2018 West Coast Rally

    All the presentations are now complete. They were all very good. I am very happy with how the rally has turned out. We have one more group gathering this evening. Not sure if that will be inside or outside (we’ll let the weather determine that). Everyone has been great. We had 26 sites here at the park with 52 adults and 10 kids in attendance. Many of them were first time WCR attendees. I have met some great new people and reacquainted myself with some old friends. I’m sad to see it come to an end. I’m already looking forward to next year and this year isn’t even done yet.
