We made it home safely, no issues. Turn signals worked the entire way and the jacks worked when we parked at the house.


Thanks to the organizers for the good time.

Just wanted to thank everyone for attending the Kaibab Lake Rally. Was good seeing everyone again. The weather was perfect and I had fun checking out my new 82CJ5 Jeep on some local trails. We finished up Ken & Tammy's new 1,160 watt solar install and when it worked the first time completed Ken seemed a little surprised?

Local trips to other lakes, the deer park, and downtime dining added extra adventures for the group. The kids (and adults) loved the Deer Park and we even got a few kids to try the Williams Zip Line.

Looking forward to our next Rally and will change some things up this year for some new experiences.

Default Issues

Good Morning AZ,

Thanks to those that pointed out potential issues with my bus. I am happy to inform all that the issue has been corrected.

The rear air bags will remain inflated for months. The issue was the automatic air level system. The toggle switch was stuck in the max raise position causing the bus to be raised about 9-12" above the wheels with the rear maintaining inflation for months after the fronts leaked out in a day or two.

I spoke to the PO, fixed the 3 way toggle switch, the bus now dumps, inflates, maintains correctly.

Tested it by topping off at Kroger's/Fry's/Smith's for $1.50 gal after discount. It's a good day.

PERFECT! - Now you're ready for the Q & Lake Havasu Rallies next year! In fact, you need to make reservations NOW for the fireworks at Lake Havasu, would be great for the kids!

You're right Mike, a good time for kids of almost all ages. We went 2 years ago (you were out that year), our kids were too young. Bed time was still 7:00 then. We had to rotate keeping an eye on them. Brandy was so excited about playing cards "that one night". I think it was Kevin and Arla that provided adult beverages. We need to get out more.

The kids will be 7 and 6 by the next Havasu fireworks and old enough to watch one or two nights. There is also a very nice skate park, a park with sandy beaches, boat rentals, a quaint down town across the London Bridge, and Parker **** in the area.
