Foremost is supposed to be a good company. They do "fulltimer" RV insurance.

I will take pics.
Of the buffet?



Don't forget to ask permission at the Wal-Mart to park overnight. They may have a specific area of the lot they want you to park in. Don't forget to ask if a generator running is okay as well.

Re: Best Home Yet

Good luck with the trip Rudy, I hope your journey goes smoothly, and especially that the bus makes it without any mechanical problems. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that you should check everything over carefully before departing. You might want to do a search on the web for what to check or look out for in a diesel vehicle that has been sitting for a while. Fortunately, diesel fuel stays good longer than gasoline.

Re: Best Home Yet

Lorna, I have stayed at This Walmart many times. It is right next to the freeway. There is a half-mile stretch of grassy area where I can walk my dogs. I will not be running my generator.

Here are some pics from when I was moving to where I am presently.

Re: Best Home Yet

Dan, I have been charging the batteries. I put fuel stabilizer in the tank when I came back from the road trip to see Glenn and his bus last summer. I will check the fluids before I leave. There is less than a thousand miles since I put new oil, filters, and transmission fluid.

I also put a quart of this lubricant called Motorkote in the oil. It is great stuff.

WOW! That is funny that you could identify that stuff. It is good that the kin of Lorna is here.

I will take some pics of the stuff when I go back home.

Are you the person who is living in the Class C ?

She's 4'10, 90 lbs and will eat a 2 lb rack of babyback ribs! And complain it should be more. A 16 oz steak! She & her sister would split my meatloaf recipe (2 lbs of 90/10 ground beef) between them and say... "I thought you already got yours"! We feed her at All-you-can-eat Chinese Buffets because she eats so much (that's how she knew what it was). She is a bottomless pit foodie! She bought a 12 CF freezer so she could fill it with food! Her complaint about the Class C.... the freezer is only 4 cf and she can't put her 12 cf freezer in it (it's why we have her freezer). You would think she did without food as a child. I don't know where she got that from. Must be from her father's side of the family....

Yes, she's the one on the Class C.... for now. A skoolie is in her hopefully not too distant future.
