Re: Single most costly.

I actually started this thread kind of tongue and cheek, but I guess for us the single most costly item has been the generator. $1600.

Were you by any chance stuck down along Boca Chica beach, Jason. We worked behind those dunes and all along the river last year. I drove along the beach down to the Rio Grande confluence almost every morning and evening and probably walked every inch of that country. Lots of BIG rattlesnakes and cool wildlife.

Re: Single most costly.

Gentlemen, just a word to the wise if your bus gets stuck... and yyou don't have Good Sams RV towing. Go to (hitch hike) to the nearest truck stop where there are a lot of over the road truckers parked, and ask any owner-operator if they would be interested in making 1 or 2 hundred dollars to pull your bus onto solid ground. Most flat bed drivers carry 10 to 20 chains and would be glad to help you. Depending on the distance, many won't even charge you a cent. I know this from over 40 years of truck driving experience. And don't be afraid to flag one down, otherwise they may think you've got towing insurance and are just waiting on a wrecker to arrive.

That's good to know. I bet a lot of them would kill to make $200 as they sit idle at the truck stops with fuel prices and freight prices as they are.

Replacing the smoking, skipping, rattling 370 with a rebuilt 460.
