Thank you Gordon for you time & effort put into writing the documentation regarding the 34QS. I believe this is my 2nd or 3rd printing, you started these in 2015. Along those lines may I ask you to show what version is the copy i.e. Ver 18.3 so we can be sure we have the latest printing. Thanks.

Also as a member of the Berkshire club have you considered attending the Berkshire rally April 28 to May 5 in Bay Hide Away RV Park, in Bay St. Louis, MS? Karen Stephenson is the rally master. It would be great to meet you and share your information with fellow owners. Last year we had about 35 at Pine Mountain, GA.

BTRitschler,
Thanks for the encouragement. I put the date of the document in its file name. If you put multiple versions of the document in the same folder, and sort by name, the dates will put them in correct order. (I use ISO dates, so they sort properly.)

Thanks, also, for the heads up on the Berkshire rally in late April to early May. I might be able to go. One important thing that I want to do in May is to be in Point Pelee, Ontario for the big bird migration. I've still got to work out their typical flight times, but it is probably at about the same time.

Raidernation,
It's an interesting thought to allow a modified version of the manual to be developed by others. It does have some fundamental complications, however, because it would be a "forked" version of the manual. If I make changes to my material, readers would want the modified version to also be changed. Managing forks like this is difficult. My son has a full-time job as a documentation engineer for a large telescope, and maintaining the documentation when there are many authors is very complex. He writes and maintains a lot of software to do it. Other organizations have the same problem.

Myself, I've written two editions of the Canadian version of a US textbook. I came across the same fork issue when I did my second edition, which had to handle advanced editions from the US. That was a big job for me.

So, I think it is best for me to keep my version to myself and not let it become forked. If people want to write their own material, my version will be freely available to others and you can make references in your material to what changes from my machine to yours by referencing the section headings in my manual.

–Gordon

I attach another version of my manual. Note the dates in the title of each version.

This version updates my discussion of tire inflation to be consistent with a recent post I made in this forum. It also provides thumbnails in your PDF reader software that lets you scroll through a preview of each page, rather than using the table of contents.

Happy New Year,
Gordon
