Thanks good info,,,,,  we actually purchased our PC out of Seattle,  driver drove it down to Vegas, took the I-5 route to LA then over to Vegas where we met him and picked it up.. we drive to Vegas during winter ( auto) a few times,,, 95% times easy drive, down to Phoenix pick up I-10   just watch for winter storms,,,

 Back to I-5   we would actually be going to Portland,,,  sounds like two mountain passes to go through,,,  would plan the trip with some snow days in it.... I would like to take the RV so would we could take advantage and camp some along the way....  would seem to me by planning a little and watching the weather could make the trip with no problem,,,,,,  we have no problem driving  700+ miles a day, so should be easy to drive,  and then hunker down a few days if needed....

  One nice thing about todays modern traveling,,,, it is so easy to get good weather reports and avoid problems,,

I assume when you guys make the drive you camp along the way

tks again

 Has anyone driven I-5 from LA to Seattle,,, during DECEMBER..  thinking about driving up there next Christmas,,,would actually be coming from Texas... I-10 to LA is usually no problem unless bad storm coming through.

I read on another forum,  this guy always runs his coach engine 5 to 10 minutes ( if RV is in storage),, gets a little charge into the batteries etc... I always do this when in storage,,,,,,, prime, then do a 10 count,,, most times it cranks first time,, starts stops about half the time, second crank,,usually fires ups quickly...   only time I have had a problem  it when the tank is not at least 1/2 full

I'm  not sure,  but wonder if the gas feed into the genie is gravity fed plus vacuum from the gen carb... ?? 

When we went to Alaska I did adjust the altitude to 3000,,,,  we live in Texas so I keep it at 1000

Beast is in storage,,, but I looked at some photos,, looks like the door is panel is framed around the panel,,, in other words unless you take out one of the sides no way it's coming apart...note I'm looking at pictures...

 what all are you planning on doing BTW,   let us know and do pics

Jampodd?
    I would just go to Discount,, couple of guys already have no problem,,, of course they do not do alignments,  lots of arguments on tire rotations,, read the post's.... I was a big believer in tire rotation,, but after reading so much on them, I now go with no rotation.. but again each to his own,,, it seems evident from the discussions, that depending on the size of your unit,,,  longer more modifications to the frames, shorter less or none, stabilizing systems mounted?? and so forth, etc have a huge impact on alignment and so forth,,

Bob.... once you do some more on those valve extensions,, post in a separate topic,, this is sort of interesting,, I just have not seen that problem mentioned that much including leaks ( a little bit),,,, maybe go ahead and post now and see if we get some discussion going,,, have not had any problems with mind and just wondering if the expense is worth it...

 I want to first thank a bunch of you guys for help on this project. After reading about the Scan Gauge II, I wanted to get one for the Beast. I queried a bunch of you guys regarding mounting the unit (Ron, Skip, Bob), thanks for you help.

Again I went ahead and did a blog.   The Scan Gauge II is mounted in the cup holder area of our Cruiser.
