No slide on the passenger side I see. That's good as I keep bumping into mine and added foam pipe insulators to the edges when opened.
That alignment is important. You don't want to be fighting it all the way home and cause unnecessary tire wear.
It may be fall back there, but it's still summer here on the California coast. I think yesterday we hit 100 or close to it here in the SFV .
Safe trip home!

Thanks Dave.

39 this morning in western Indiana. Furnace and all appliances continue to work fine. Only remaining issues are 1 missing screw and the alignment. However, it has calmed down and isnt too bad.

Rolling through Smithborough Illinois right now.

Jim,

It is 2016 all through. All lights inside are led except under stove. All outside are led but the porch and rear running lights across top. I havent checked them closely to see the bulb type.

My dinette is all leather, no fabric, and I really like the new roller shades.

Jim, where you from anddo you have a shop. My brother Mark was really into Pro Mod vw racing for a while and we have been into vw's since 74. Just wondered if we crossed paths.

, I have changed my porch light and stove light to Led. Both were really hot, especially the stove light which also put out very little light. Now, more light, no heat and very little amp draw.

Hi,

Saw that you did in another post. I'll put that on the list.

Got 7.3 MPG today over 600 plus miles through Indiana and Missouri. Ran 65 to 70 most of the way towing my Jeep Liberty. Heavy cross winds all day.

Stopped for the night in Topeka Kansas after having an amazing meal at Stroud's in Kansas City. They have pan fried chicken just like my Mom used to make. It was out of this world! Put it on your travel list.

Going on to Denver tomorrow.

Scott

Jim,

Ever deal with Topline in Anaheim, or if you are an old timer Truk-n-Bug in Stanton?

Scott- Do you have to be back at work Monday? If so, are you're cutting it close?
Must be a real fight with the wind. 65-70 mph towing, you aren't going to try that here are you?
Wait, nobody does 55 here in California the legal max for towing anything.
