It depends on if I take my diuretics that morning.

I have made it solo from Disney in 1 stop. That's 1004 miles, but normally we stop every 4-5 hours. I can stop anywhere convenient though and not time stops around truck stops and waiting at pumps for fuel.

I towed all over the country racing, that's when I bought the auxiliary tank. It seemed like most truck stops where we needed were 30-45 minute stops, so we added 60 gallon in-bed tanks to both trucks. If I just need the BR and stretch a bit, 10 minutes in a rest area and I'm back on the road.

Finally had my skylight replaced. I measured the new one a little small. It fits, just not quite the size of the old one.

And the tech found/fixed an issue where we smelled a hot burning smell with the water heater. Back in January, when we pulled the water heater out in order to deal with the broken check-valve, we must have messed something up electrically because this is what he replaced:

What did you do to your camper today?

I used to use large and small boards but got tired of lugging them around for two sets of these works better, lighter and smaller to stow even comes with a little bag to hold them.

On my second FR product no complaints but I really do like the newer Keystone Montana High Country units and Cougar 333MKSS, really nice stuff. A few ppl at a park I go to have the Open Range, they are really nice, good luck with your new baby

Ouch. That's 110v. You're lucky it didn't go up in smoke.

The propane side, yes- definitely.

The 120v side, I'm not sure. We had been following the smell for a little while and narrowed it down to the water heater. We started switching to propane-only and would turn on electric for the faster recovery. So I'm not positive if it worked at all. I do know, the last day that we used electric- the smell was instant and incredibly strong. Turned it back off and decided that under no circumstance would it be used again until someone inspected it.
