Re: getting ready for a trip

ok so i'll use a 1/4 cup to my 30 gallon tank ,, thanks tex ,, i knew this stuff once but i forget some of the simpler things ,, such as where does the white hose hook to and how do i get an adapter that will hook the white hose to the big 3inch outlet on the bottom side of the coach ,,, hey sorry ,, i'm being silly tonight ,, really tired ,, i guess the rv trvl time is upon us ,, and also read in the paper ,, that most of the public is going to use there "stimulus" cks on vacations ,, so u know what that means ,, more rv's on the road ,, and more stuff to get ready for the stimulus vacations :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Re: getting ready for a trip

Rod, I kinda know how you feel gettin ready for a trip. We are taking a short trip to Disneyland in a couple weeks (about 800 mile r/t), and I have a list of 'to do's ' in my mind. Most of them are relatively simple but time consuming just the same. Don't need to change the oil, but give the coach a good going through. But it's something I look forward to and enjoy. Have a safe fun trip..

Wait a minute. I just spent an hour under, over and beside and a can't find the distributor with wires running out on my cummins. Heck, I don't even know if its an 8 cyl or 12 or it may be syrup bucket 4 cyl engine so therfore I don't know how many wires to be looking for. Help! Its a 325 cummins. Come on dl and help me smell tne smoke.
