Thanks, now I need to get the windex to clean my screen.

Seriously, I hope he has planned his recharge stops, might be hard to find the correct power sources for that monster truck!
BTW, if he needs any help with the kicking, let me know - happy to help a fellow Frog!.

Seems they are putting more and more plastic into TVs every year.

Now for the Washington DC part. Do you really expect that your great grand son can impart his intelligence on members of congress? Or is he going there for a comedy of errors amusement show?

What a great post! Thank you. I'm sure this thread will continue for many days. Keep us posted as to his mishaps along the way. Make sure you tell him to maintain a long social distance from those buffalo in that red truck .

That's awesome. Two years old and he's smart enough to want to go visit President Trump!

I would focus on the Western US sights then 30 days is enough. Plan on 10 mpg and he will do a bit better

30 days is pushing it just for the western portion. Adding DC? No way. 10mpg sounds like a conservative estimate. Maybe he will do better, maybe not.

And realize climate out west is all over the place. Death Valley? Have you seen recent temps? Meanwhile Yellowstone and Grand Canyon will be at the opposite temp wise. If you go to Grand Canyon, you really need to go to Zion and Bryce Canyon too. I could spend three weeks easy just doing Utah.

Battery life

W the heat. And possible long distance between charge stations I would suggest back up batteryís.
Also pack chocolate bars w nuts. Keep them in a cooler.

So two 12 volt batteries in series would get him there in half the time.��

Seattle to DC

My grandkids, daughter and I did a Seattle to DC trip last summer. We were gone 3 weeks and saw a ton but the President wasn't home. We had a great time but wished we could have stayed longer. Cookies and milk were a definate must and we added lots of popsicles because the weather was pretty warm. Watch out for the propane detours on the bridges, tunnels and expressways as you get closer to the east coast. The rooftop toll pass we purchased online was also a lifesaver. It worked from Chicago to DC. A few summers ago we took about 3 weeks and did the Southern Route to all the Utah National Parks and the Grand Canyon on our way to Albuquerque. I would suggest either taking more time or separating the destinations. Does his tow vehicle come with Trailer Backup Assist?

Okay, so here comes the weight police. You are giving advice to a newbie to exceed the GVW? So the chocolate bars w nuts won't last past the first few miles, or until the next BM. But the batteries and cooler?

Let's go off the rails now and convince newbie into moving up to a bigger TV. Some great choices would be Aosam, Zintown, Jaxpeto, Costway and probably a few more. Though costing a little more, my vote is the Costway. It has bluetooth which will be of great value. All of these have run flat tires, so no China bomb argument. Still, these TVs are pushing the GVW limits. Could eliminate the cooler and give advice to look for lemonade stands along the route. Possibly those with charging stations?
