Things I've learned about RV'ing

This last week we took a quick getaway trip to find warmer weather. We chose a new resort in Louisiana. A few things we learned about RV'ing while on this trip are:

1. I-55 in Mississippi and Arkansas can be miserable. Imagine taking your RV/camper on the Whoops of a motocross track. I will no longer complain about the repair jobs in Illinois. You're welcome IDOT.

2. When the DEF warning lights up on a 2013 F-450, you need to fill it all the way up before it goes away. That was a bit stressful hoping we weren't going to go into a shut down mode. Good thing I listened to the wife and topped it off.

3. You'll question the accuracy, duck your head and close your eyes when you approach a low clearance bridge that is close to your height. I'm hopefully 13'4' and passed under a 13'7" bridge at 70 mph.

4. The 6.7 L powerstroke kicks the butt of a 6.0 L when towing our camper. Thank goodness I upgraded. Smooth sailing all the way there and back. Honestly felt like I was traveling empty most of the time.

Next trip to learn from, Camp Gulf on memorial day week.
