Saga begins. Leave home. Get money. Stop by Camper Exchange and get towing mirrors I didn't need and a pair of chocks. Hit the road.
Man, it was toasty to day. With the windows
unzipped and running down the road it was aright, but boy if I had to stop or slow down. 95-98 F!
Made it to Sikeston ahead of Vic, so I returned his call (which I got, but couldn't hear in the Jeep). He was still about 1/2 hour out, so I checked out the outlet mall just up the street until he called.
Walked through and around the Play Pac. 13 foot FG eggs are the cutest things. It has running lights! And They work! Woo hoo.
I have a couple of pictures of Vic checking a faulty tail light
. Turns out it's the Jeep's fault. I need a better flasher controller, or whatever it's called. The nice people at RV America (right up the street, so to speak, from Lamberts) checked things out and didn't charge me. Bought the stabilizing jacks for the trailer there.
The Play Pac/Jeep combo towed and pulled without any sway or struggle. Get this! On the first leg of the trip home, I cruised at about 60 mpg and when I filled the tank at the 2/3 mark; I got better gas mileage towing the egg, then I do without it. Is that weird or what? The trip down was 15 mpg; the 1st leg back was 18 mpg and the last leg was a dismal 11 mpg.
I'll post pictures tomorrow. I'm pooped.
