Florida RV show

Recommended Posts

There are a bunch of 30 amp sites open in the campground at the RV show 23-31 and I can't believe they would not want to rent them ( vendor or not ) so if you are coming to the show give them a call and see if you can snag one.

The number is (813)663-3663

Got spot B4

I'll have the truck on stealth mode.

I think most of us will be asleep when you get get here Roger. if we leave before you get up, we will see you at the show.

Did I see you drive in today? If so where did you park! I made a trip around the outer road this evening and did not see any HDT's but I saw some coming in today.

B4 across from the red Volvo flattop and down the opposite row to your left.

The show is massive unlikely we will connect. I've not met you

My US cell 772 584 1273

I need to sort out intermittent left turn signal a d generator.

If generator can't be fixed properly, the Cummins people will take a look.

 

I got in about 1030 local..i think. Not sure, I've jumped 2 or 3 time zones,in the last 3 days.

Cell says 1140 so 1030 is about right.

The rig needs to be unhooked and the car unloaded and wiped down.

I set the countdown odometer to 4k miles about 60 miles into the trip.

It zeroed ou about 300 miles ago..

Long run.

I should be up about 5 am so call me before you leave.

There are a bunch of emails need to be done asap

 

What's the Wi fi password here pleaze?

Still haven't decided if I will bring the truck or car. Will be leaving after work Friday and it's a little less than a 4 hour trip. Either way I plan to sleep in the parking lot and be up early, hopefully before the crowd starts flowing in Saturday. Undecided about staying Saturday night too.

 

Will there be any issue arriving after 9pm? I've never stayed on site before. I know there is an extra parking (extended) fee, is the entrance staffed all night?

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

You made it to the fairground last night? What kind of parts do you need this morning to fix your genset?

Everyone have been really nice! You can get a parking pass plus a overnight pass for one night or the whole show.

I'm at an rv park in Bushnell north, not at the fairground.

Without the generator I can't drycamp.so am not going to risk it. With a residential fridge and small freezer, batteries drain fast.

If gen fan circuit gets bypassed, wire, switch, connectors, maybe heatshrink. Some I already have.

Once my eyeballs have detached from the back of my head, I'll have a look at the manual to see if there is a schematic for that system.

I could bring the truck today if I'm not able to fix it myself.

Also need to get trailer intermittent left turn signal fixed. Trailer stays here.

The problem is in the junction box/pin box area where the EZConnector,connects to the trailer. I can see the red wire. Feels like an inline with heatshrink.

I have Randy wrists X2 so am not able to work around hard 90 corners.

Have Rv tech coming to Rv park Friday for turn signal. I'll try again with truck disconnected so I don't have to bend backwards.

I'll be at the show later after washing the rig...4300 miles of road grime.

Retinas have just dislodged from back of my head

How these truckers put on 700 to 900 miles a day is beyond me.

 

Passed a toad abandoned by the side of the road a few days back. The front end was completely ground down to the tow bar connection points. Bottom half of both wheels and air dam etc completely gone.

He did leave 2 safety triangles behind the car.

Something like this was on UTUBE.

Anybody at the show, do me a favor? If you see the vendor from Irvine Shade & Door (Shade Man), ask him what the "show discount" is on orders. Don't mention me, etc. Just trying to see if I got the "best" deal. TKS! You all enjoy, maybe next year........................
