He probably would a lot faster if he'd ride it.

Got it home, and gave it a once over. Seems like it all works (even the AC ) so a little scrub-a-dub-dub, and some minor stuff in the next few weeks as time permits.... Anyone have a db test on generators. I'm looking for a fucking LOUD one that I can tune to run way too rich :mini



Awning is shot, and I'd actually like to find a whole new awning and chassis combo (maybe a power one). Anyone know where a good spot on the interwebs may be for such things?

I have a carefree eclipse electric awning on my camper and love it.
It came with it so I cant comment on where to buy from, but these guys have had good prices on other stuff I have bought.

How early? I'd like to get the 690 back up to operating temp, but If you're on the 300 I'll just slow you down in the tight stuff.

I have two really loud ones. They actually break DB meters.

Run good and insure no one parks close to you!!!

So you gonna pull that to the Fests with you 690 or are you gonna go pussy and haul and camp...

Seriously, wife and I just got back from two nights at Open Pond in Alabama. Fantastic camp sight, quiet, lake background and all the comforts of home.
12 bucks a night.... that's almost NO FEE...
