Good one . Strictly genys or solar if you have it. Check out the pics above & mine below from 2016. Expect a dirt parking lot & side by side parking. A generator rooftop Venturi pipe or exhaust is recommended & it will come in handy. Daytime temps can be warm in May, so geny/air might feel good. If you have pets, leave them at home or bring their ear muffs. They won’t like the LONG nighttime shows every night. The front row is nice with a good view of nighttime action. But most sit out front of the front row coaches anyway to watch. Adult refreshments also come in handy . Three years ago during the daytime prep, they managed to blow up a whole crate of something. It’s good the launch area is a 1/2 mile away. We’re of the been there, done it camp. But if you LOVE fireworks displays (and good company), this is the rally for you!

Actually mid-February, perfect weather time for Lake Havasu! You'll need a coat or sweater at night. The fireworks are basically grand finales. Each Vendor will shoot off their grande finales to sell their products to municipals and other large corporations. So we'll witness huge fireworks for 10-15min with breaks in between while they switch Vendors, very entertaining.

Default Lake Havasu slot just opened up!

Well looks like I'm not going to make this rally this year.

I'm still trying to get my Allison tranny 4th gear to work properly and I'm out of time.

So, we have another slot available for this rally if anyone can make it? It runs Monday-Monday but you can show up anytime. I had planned on Thur-Sun to see the fireworks.

Let me know if anyone is interested and can make this rally. Feb 1-17

Oh it's much worse than that. 55 is 2700 rpm so would have to slow her down to about 50 for cruise. That means I'll have semi's coming up my tail at 80 mph! Its just not safe.

Also I still have that fuel leak and I have everything torn up, no dog house, no co-pilots seat, etc.. parts all over and all the parts spread all over the coach. I thought about driving up and just getting a hotel to hang out but the wife shot that down, plus during this week everything is beyond booked. So I guess I'll use this time to get the bus up for the next rally.

I can't drive 55!
(that should be a song )

Not to my knowledge. They offer services to bring you water and/or pump out your tanks. All that info will be in your Welcome Package when you arrive.

if needed then you need to call Jack Pots RV Pumping - 928.680.0804 and arrange pumping or fresh water filling.
