What a great great time at Tom and Darlene's. Thank you Tom for posting the pics. Clarke, the 15 amp didn't trip while we were hooked up. We used the water pump, lights, coffee maker, fan, and the fridge. We were very happy and I know we could have used more, but I didn't want to wear out our welcome. When we come out to visit you guys, it will be a tall order to compete with our Mesa friends. 30 amp would help. lol.

Well, we are now in Sedona. Uneventful ride up here, and we are in the only RV park in Sedona. Very centrally located and enjoyable. We should get some good pics up here and we will figure out the posting procedure. Won't be tough.

David and Denise

David, we are looking forward to visiting you and Denise in Colorado next year whether, or not a mini-rally is organized. I see that you are suggesting August for the mini-rally at Mountain Views Rv Park, Creede, CO. What week in August have you booked, and is that this year, or next year???.....let me know so we can book the same week....LOL!!

David, if Tom plugged you into the outlet near the light at the front of the garage, that is not a GFCI circuit and as long as you keep your power usage down, which you obviously did, it works great. I reset my inverter/charger to indicate I was hooked up to only a 9 amp circuit so it would keep the batter charger on trickle charge rather than suck up 11 AC amps just recharging the batteries (My ProSine has a built in 105 amp DC battery charger).

We did find that plugging into a GFCI circuit resulted in an instant trip of Tom's circuit. I don't remember you have any kind of power management on your coach (Tom's does, mine doesn't) but Tom's coach will not trip a GFCI and mine will.

Hey Clarke: Fantastic, can't wait to have a get together in CO. Right now, we are scheduled into Creede early Aug this year, but we may have to change as a result of needing to be in Atlanta. May need to change to mid-late June. A couple more weeks and we will know. Next year, yes, we can coordinate a time and invite all to participate that would like to. Tiger Run in Breckenridge is another idea. Nice park, but beginning to see a lot of Beetle kill with the trees. The thing with the Creede Park is that they require full prepayment 7 days after reservations have been made for July and August and after the 7 day grace period non-refundable for any reason. We will keep in touch on that.

Michael, thanks, yes I believe we were plugged into the one on the front porch closest to the garage. I appreciate the info on the charger etc. I have no idea if I can do the same.

Be good I'll try and figure pics out today sometime for posting.

Rhonda has already expressed interest in the next rally. Since we still have kids in school, June through mid August works best for us. We love the higher country in the summer for the cooler temps. We have all the sunny weather we need in Tejas.

Perhaps we should start a new thread contemplating the next rally?

I'm glad I was not driving on the highway while this film was being made for a thousand miles or more, with the two of you making your hollywood movie. lol

The backdrop was cool with a sneeze coming from someone at one point, not sure who it was but I have an idea.
Looks all of you had a good time, and the best thing is that you made it home safe. I'll be waiting for the next movie.

I like the singing along, her sneeze wasn't nearly as entertaining.

We left the mountains 40 miles NW of Ft. Collins, CO on Tuesday morning, June 30th. We are now in Little Rock, AR and making our way to the Panhandle of FL for a few days with family. Then on to Atlanta for a trade show and back to Denver, CO around July 18th. The Coach is purring like a kitten and we had the front air conditioner worked on before we left. The mechanic dude, said all is well and have a good trip. The air conditioner lasted exactly three miles and quit. So, here we are, in 98 degree heat, hoping the other two keep on running. He'll get an ear full when I get back to town. Glad to hear that we are up to 22 people and 10 Coaches coming to visit us in Creede, CO in early August. Wow, this is great. We will have a great great time. We visited the Oklahoma City, OK memorial and the Clinton Presidential Museum. Good to see some interesing and very informative places on our way. Just sooo very much to see. This is the way to do it. Since none of us can sell our Coaches, and most of us do not want to anyway, we may as well build as many memories as we can and meet as many people as possible. Life is good.

Thanks so much, Richard. I'll give a shout probably on Monday when I can do some troubleshooting. Today, just finished close to 400 miles and tomorrow 220 will finish our 1,700 mile trip to the Panhandle. No further issues which is very nice. Reading with great interest the air/brake supply postings and can't wait to visit with all the guys about that in Creede.

Please, everyone, have an enjoyable 4th of July and safe travels to all.
