  1. Don’t know about your truck, but I have a 2011 Volvo and my refrigerator is 120vac and runs off the dc/ac inverter, I have to turn on the inverter first then the refrigerator, inverter switch is above windshield on drivers side.

    HDT Insurance

    Don’t know about Fl, but I have my HDT, which is registered as a motor home, insured as a private truck with State Farm in Alaska, I bobtail quite often so Insurance stays with the truck, 5th wheel insured separately.
  4. Chad, I don’t have a machine, but would be interested in renting one and getting in on this, count me in.

    Yellowstone

    I stayed at Grizzlies RV Park in West Yellowstone 2 years ago and it was great, right at the Park entrance, I am 72 ft and had no problem getting in,
  7. I use my phone to take pictures of numbers in tight places if to small for my eyes and expand them so I can read them.

    Maiden voyage!

    Traveled from Seattle to Laughlin NV both ways last 3 years, we use 5 we like 3 RV parks on the on 5, Seven Feathers, Canyonville OR, Rolling Hills Casino, Corning CA, and The Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield CA. I 5 is easy, you will get some mountain driving, Ashland to Redding, give you some idea of what your truck can do, take ca46 from 5 to 99 north of Bakersfield, then 58 east out of Bakersfield, Orange Grove RV Park is on 58 . 58 to Kramer Junction 395 South to, I-15 South to I-10 in Riverside. My problem with 395 is only 2 lanes mostly and only one RV Park to handle our 72 feet, 8 miles west of Lakeview OR on 140, Junipers RV Park. Safe trip.
  9. Not in the plans now, but things might change, we just got home after 19 months, summertime, fishing etc, Tom
  10. Karen says darn too! 😩 Maybe next year, keep the shiny side up 👍 Tom
  11. Great job Dave, congratulations, sorry to miss WCR, you and your new truck, maybe next year, safe travels, see you down the road. Tom & Karen
  12. I have David Dixon’s retrofit in my old lights and they are IMO the best way to go and they were for the last 3 years, but my lense houseings got so bad that I had to go this route, when the new lights start to give me problems I will retrofit the new houseings with David’s lights.
  13. Last month I replaced my head lights, I had used restoration kits with limited results but finally decided to go new, a week after replacing them I had to take my wife to emergency eye surgery in the middle of the night 90 miles from Reedsport to Eugene OR, best $262.00 I ever spent.

    Volvo engines

    2011 D13, 700K miles, 435hp 1650ftlbs, I have put 40K miles in the three years I have had it and only replaced a starter, has been very dependable. Volvo’s marine version of the D13 puts out 900hp, and their race truck the Iron Knight puts out 2400ph, same D13, says something I guess.
