We are just about
a week (a day) away from departing on a tour across the great USA. The plan is to travel across the middle of America to the West Coast, follow the Pacific Coast highway from northern California to Washington State. Ever since our 2012 Alaska tour in the truck camper, this Pacific Coast road-trip was in the making. The original idea was to head south from the Alaska tour and explore the western coast, but at the time of the year the temperatures in that part of the country were very high and we took the Canadian route home. This year, we are going to do it, but we might be facing the same very hot climate! The truck camper, itself, doesn’t have A/C which might make it uncomfortable at night. I have added a few power point sockets to run D/C cooling fans. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
Arriving at the end of April I’ve been more than busy getting both 5th wheel and truck camper ready for the upcoming season. I have mentioned some of the improvements on the 5th wheel in previous blogs. As for the truck camper, some improvements that I have just recently completed include: doubling the solar capacity, adding another battery, installing several USB charging stations, adding a long-range WiFi antenna with repeater. I’ve also replaced the original stop, tail and turn lights with high output LEDs. Added two 48 watt LED backup lights and added a seven pin plug connector inside the truck bed towards the driver’s side front of the bed. This will eliminate the possibility of pinching the cable (which I’ve done) going to rear toward the back number. (On the 5th wheel, this will eliminate the cable going over the tailgate.)
One could leave NH and head over to Vermont, New York and follow the southern side of the Great Lakes, but I’ve been there before and the nightmare of traffic, tolls is not worth this the aggravation! Instead it is nearly a straight shot leaving NH and through Canada to Sault Ste Marie, Ontario and enter the US in Michigan. Stay tuned!
That what we saw and did!
