New fridge in (Igloo not RCA) and secured. New TV (RCA) in and working.
Next is a test drive to see if the CKP sensor is the fix for codes.

We have an art show/campout just after T Day 110 miles away.

It is the nature of forums to hear the questions about all kinds of problems. It is also nice to hear about success stories. I hope things keep going good for you.

Near 250 miles and NO CODES! Up and down some 6% towing our Neon on a dolly, the bus performed perfectly. Big ol' turkey dinner, Mary's art show went very well. She sold some drawings, jewelry and other hand crafted items.
Home now and kickin' back.

Spooky the wonder cat was on her best behavior also. When I walk her on her leash around the CG, she makes new friends every time.

Installed a proper converter after running a good quality battery charger for 3 years. Different charge routines and will charge the batteries faster. 55a vs. 15.

I have run the genny and the window ac while on the road several times but this last trip I ran it but didn't have the scooter on the back. I guess the different aeros caused the condensation of blow forward.... Right onto the bed! Lesson learned, been thinking about a spoiler.
