By the way,

I never carry water in any of the tanks. I never use the fresh water tank since we are always in parks with water. The exception may be a long trip and keeping something in the black water tank for road side emergencies.

I read someplace or someone told me it was not good to travel with tanks more than ?? full. I believe it was 1/3 full but since I do not haul water anyway I can't remember for sure. That may be just someone's personal opinion though.

Happy traveling..........

Let me know if you make reservations...Once you are at Blanco you will probably not want to leave to go to Pedernales, just saying...I believe they will change you over for five bucks.

For sure.
We are in the process of emptying the old trailer so it will be ready for trade in. PDI is set up for Wednesday. I set it up that day because it's my wifes birthday. I was going to see if I could get a camping site by the house at the end of August so we can set it up properly but that's labor day weekend so I doubt if anything is available.

This is the wrong time of year to be doing this, it's too dam hot. My wife won't put anything in the kitchen until she does the shelf lining so we need A/C. Since we live in track homes I really don't want to pop out the slides.

First maiden trip will be to Blanco for a week starting 09/19. I'm having 4.11 gears put in after we pick up the trailer for more pulling power. Having the 12k equilizer installed at the dealer and also am upgrading my factory class 4 to a class 5 because of the heavy tongue weight. That trailer has about a 950# tongue weight plus another 200#'s for the full propane, battery and equilizer so I was already up to 1150 and the factory hitch maxes out at 1200# tongue weight. I like to go overkill for the equipment since I'll be pushing the weight for my 1/2 ton. I'll see how it handles after we load it and decide if I want to do air bags or helper springs but I really don't think I'll need them since it is only about 1800#'s heavier then the trailer I've been towing for the last 9 years.

I'm excited to pick it up and see how it tows dry with the stock truck.

Looks like I'll be seeing you soon, remind me as it gets closer and we'll see if we can make reservations or at least ride up on the harley.

Rooti,

You got a Harley?

Too much in common......(not really)

I used to have a Roadking but on a Goldwing although it has 3 wheels now. Ride with PGR and also Run For The Wall every May.

Would love to meet you.

I hope to have our 8314BSS on a scale by then.

I have a dyna superglide. I ride mostly in the hill country so it fits me well. The wife even took a liking to it.

I think you will be surprised when you put that "lightweight" on the scale. Let me know what you come up with.
