  1. I wish that was so. Hooked up ready to back it into the RV shed again. Its on our list of places to go. Same as the east Tn rally.
  2. Being my wife retired the last day of July. We had planned on traveling this year. But between Dr Visits for me, and this virus. We have put off traveling until next year. But did get the truck cleaned up. Trailer is hooked up also, cleaning on it also. New drives will be put on the truck. New tires on the 5th wheel also. Then were close to being ready to travel when the time is here to do so. Truck is only 25 years old, but should have a lot more RV years left in it.
  3. I picked up a box with a bunch of different size green Ac o-Rings. I'm thinking with shipping it was less then $12. Had every size i needed for my KW. I did ask at the dealer, they wanted $25. for the 8 o-rings.
  4. Sounds like us, $400. water bill and $600. electric bill. AC/Heatpump both were running at the same time. Then county was mowing and tractor ran over our meter. Leak was on our side of the meter.🤬 Water bill was taken care of. Electric bill the same just a new unit. What's next?? Normal water bill $40 normal electric $200.
  5. There's a 379 Peterbilt here in West Tn for Sale. It has a I think 120" sleeper and a 8x8 box behind that.

    That's good to know, the skylight over our Tub. Is getting darker and letting in less light. Sad part its been under a roof out of the sun more than its in the sun. I may just order 2, that way if it never needs one again. And with my luck its no longer made. I will have an extra.
  7. Thanks for the info. Don't think we will see much mud. Now sand may be found, and lots of rock roads. Snow may be also an issue but sure not going to try and find it. Most will be road miles. Along with off the beaten path service roads and Forest roads. Wife and I love to find that spot. Most never even hear about. Less people and traffic fits us perfect. Again thanks for the info. Pete
  8. We plan on taking our Jeep TJ with us. Now I'm replacing the almost new mud grip tires on it. Want something quite, but able to get around out west. Our plans are using it to get off the beaten track. Visit ghost towns and spots most bypass. So looking for a tire that will take care of dirt and sand. Plus be quite on the pavement. The ones on it now, sound like a screaming fool at 65 on the hwy. Pete
  9. So the 55 gallon drum of Methanol I have. I should not be mixing in with my hand sanitizer? Guess were lucky in parts of west Tn. Most shelf's are full, and even TP is easy to get these days. Now every store is out of Common sense. But it was in short demand before 2020 started.
  10. My 1995 KW T600 is quite, unless I hit the jake brake. Then all bets are off for sure. I did add Dynamat to the doors under the panels. Plus carpet makes a big difference. But for me, I love the sound of the engine working.

    I use a 2 wheel dolly, Remove tires and also remove brake drums and install brake drums without lifting the drum or tires. Been using one to do this job the last 30+ years. Now the one above sure does a great job. Plus pull both wheels and drum off at one time if need be. But the hand truck is great for the single wheel and tire or a drum.
  12. My 1995 Kenworth stopped working. Found out what causes it, but not fixed it yet. I do have cruise now. But also have a air leak on the trailer brake valve on the dash. I can Hold the tractor valve and push on the trailer valve. Then the leak stops, but cruise does not work. So ran all week hauling gravel. With a slight air leak on my trailer Valve knob. Going to order the kit and rebuild the parking valves. Then see if the cruise works right. If not will hook my trailer lines together. Then push both valves in and see if it works.
  13. Awesome work for sure, I hope to pour up a few hundred 45 cal bullets for my muzzle loader this fall. Would love to build one by hand like you. Don't ever see it happening though.
  14. Man I laughed at that video. Priceless and spot on.
