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.

Thank you. Just out trying to do some basic yard stuff. Mary and I are coming back from some 3rd world virus or something that knocked our old asses out for a couple weeks. Removed the water pump so it won't freeze, should be winter by the weekend, for the weekend.
Trying to clean up the bus after our visit to Skooliepalooza 2.

Sorry to hear about the virus. I wish you guys a speedy recovery. It's good to hear things are well otherwise. Heal well and heal fast my friends.

Glad to hear you're starting to feel better. I got the bug right after Thanksgiving. That was a rough virus this year, but on the bright side I lost a lot of weight.

It's astounding that the flue gets worse every year and immunizations become more and more important.

You guys get better. I want to meet you out there one of these days.

This weird virus has attacked our lungs mostly, very strange bug. No intestinal or stomach issues. Left us very weak but every day we're a bit better.

Thanks.

Both doing MUCH better...So good that I ordered a new loveseat/recliner to replace our failing individual recliners.
Hope this lasts for a while, our old one's are literally falling apart.
They are due today vis FedEx.
