I paid $196.8 for diesel this morning at the Harris Teeter station near my house. I only needed about 70 gallons though. It was priced $205.9 less 3 cents off for HT affinity card and 3% off that for Penn Federal card.

Now we're ready for a big trip. Our next trip is probably 50 miles to the beach at Emerald Isle.

I was able to simplify the hoses down to two pieces of hose each for the inlet and outlet of the radiator, which were each clamped to the 10 foot long sections running to the generator engine. I wrote the part number and date of replacement on each hose, though it ended up getting rubbed off in spots - I will also note the parts used and date in Shadow's service logbook.


I put the battery into a plastic case to prevent leaks from corroding the metal battery tray. I will probably replace the battery with an AGM type in the future ( a major battery / power system rework is looming on the next year project list! )


The blower motor was replaced with a generic replacement which featured 3 speeds and is reversable. I wired the high and low speed lines to a toggle switch that I installed in the capacitor box. In cool weather, I can slow the blower down and make it a little quieter. The box that the capacitor is in is too small for my liking, I will be looking for a larger box so I can work on it without using too many of my special mechanic's words.
Very timely for me, it's my next project. Thanks for posting. Did you also replace the flexible hoses?

I added a new mount for the shower head. Don’t know about the rest of you larger guys, but to me, it makes the shower feel at least 25% larger. Getting the head further away allows me to move a little closer to the corner and the elbow room is much better. Bad news is that I now take longer showers. Works fine when not dry camping.

Sorry, 380 guys, still won’t get you a curved shower door. LXI’s rule!!

That reminds me I need to move our shower mount as well.

Today I worked on changing out as many of the outside small rusty screws as I could and replacing them all with stainless steel. I swear, it's little things like this that seem to make a big difference, at least to me, but then again I do get hyper focused on the details.

Installed a n.o.s. Motorola voltage regulator I got off E bay on the alternator. Everything works great.

Ah the sacrifices we make for 10.2 mpg (actual miles/gal number to/from recent Picacho Peak SP AZ get together). On the other hand, that mpg could also be due to lower wind resistance from Luna’s wheel polishing & a new wax

And with solar - no diesel consumption once you’ve landed.
If you lower it and add a valence you’re might get to 11 mpg

Careful Van, I know you are not allowed east of the Mississippi, so you were not there to see it. But KC’s wheels were seen to start a fire at Pine Mountain because of reflecting the sun. They do look great however.

Went and got the bus out of storage Friday and started to winterize and get it ready to go. This morning mother nature surprised me with.....SNOW! Testing out the Webasto swap out of the Primus. Its toasty warm inside and engine is nice and warm too.
