Well - here we are, back on the road to Alaska. Boss Lady and I were supposed to leave Sebring on May 1st, but due to a screw-up in shipping my truck, we didn't leave until yesterday. Pulled out around 0800 and managed to get all the way to the Winn-Dixie parking lot 4 miles from the house when I discovered that when making a left turn, the MH spare tire was rubbing against the trailer tongue jack. So after 45 minutes or so of parking lot rerpairs I managed to move the spare tire carrier over so I had clearance. I also discovered that my coach batteries were dead. Probably my fault since I left the MH plugged in all winter and probably cooked the batteries to a turn. They were low on water when I did my pre-departure checks, and I filled them, but I never unplugged the MH to see if they actually produced electricity. Lesson learned. So Boss Lady, me, and two squalling cats managed to hit the road for good about 0930 and after a (thankfully) uneventfull trip, made it to my niece's house about 2030 last night. Trip log so far: 488 miles 54.94 gallons of gas Gas cost $200.00. Now - off to Wal-Mart for two new golf cart batteries.
