Flying J's

Saturday, September 8, 2007

Just a quick update....I made it almost to Indianapolis today...about 340 miles (according to Streets & Trips). I didn't get on the road until 11am but at least I didn't hit rain until after 4pm. I stopped to grab a bite to eat, stopped three times to re-adjust the mirrors (gotta love the rough highways I was on), and the last stop was a Flying J for gas. It was pouring, I needed to move things around a bit inside the RV - including making up the bed. Got a little more settled, walked BoBo, grabbed some coffee & apple pie ala mode and paid for a one day Flying J Wi-Fi pass so I could check in.

Generator is running fine but for some reason I don't get anything from the coach batteries even though they show as charged. And that seems to not allow the refrigerator to switch to propane. Will talk to some folks at the Escapade tomorrow to find out what I'm doing wrong (I'm sure it's me....LOL!). Anyway, the frig will do fine overnight so will turn off the generator when I head to bed (which will be very soon).

I have less than 200 miles to make it to Goshen and the Escapade. Can you say EXCITED!!!!

Till next time - keep on rollin',


  1. I hope you got the e mail regarding the recall! of course if nothing has happened in 8 years... but still... I will try myself to find a Ford RV dealer in Sacramento... we are all on the road!!! How cool is that...

    have fun... later... be well...

  2. Good for you. Isn't it great to be on the road again? I loved it when Pat & I headed off to Spokane for a week & a half. Our next trip will be about the first of Oct and to Oregon for solar system installation, then to work our way north & home along the Oregon Coast, a beautiful area that you should see if you've not yet been there.

    As to the 12v problem, is there a battery isolation switch that cuts the power from your house batteries? Most RVs have them and they are usually used if you park & tie the rig up for a length of time. That is another place where solar is good as they keep the batteries up all the time.


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
