we actually had to pull over and stop because the sand was so thick in the air.
I Would Think That's Hard On The Full Body Paint Job.

Smart to change your air filter after that visit.

We were out there in early April 2012. Talk about windy! I can remember a couple times we actually had to pull over and stop because the sand was so thick in the air. After our visit I stopped in southern NM somewhere along I-10 and bought a new engine air filter just for safety sake. Glad I did as the original was very caked with sand.....

Memories..

Haha I don't know and hope never to find out. :-)  That's all sand. :-)

Pretty shots!
How well does your PC handle when driving on snow?

Looks like a heavenly drive!
I'm glad the damage wasn't any worse.
I don't tow a vehicle, either.  My tow is my dog pulling on the leash.  We can't go as far as you's guys with toads, but we do all right!

Yep, I hear you.  That is why we settled on towing a 4x4.

We had found ourselves saying "no" to too many roads in the south-west, but also in mountainous and urban areas.  With few exceptions, we learned it's best to bring the Jeep along.  We did tow it on our two week trip around Lake Michigan, but learned in that case we should have left it home.  So it's not something to take on "every" planned vacation.

Getting around in a 2100 does offer more flexibility than our 2350.  But some of those roads in Utah are just too hard on any PC.  They were too hard on our car that we towed before as was the case in Escalante on the road to the trail head to the narrows.  Driving a Toyota MR2 Spyder through deep dry washed rock river beds was our turning point.  So the 4x4 became our tow vehicle of choice.

If we had a PC Quigley 4x4, I still would not take the PC on some of the roads we travelled due to over-hangs, tip-overs, narrows, height clearances, damaging jolts, wash-boarding and such.  Better for us to tow the 4x4 for such day excursions.

This dirt road is not really recommended for RV's. A couple people told me I could do it no problem but it was beyond my comfort zone in a few places. I dragged the hitch carrier a few times, and ripped the wiring socket off. :-(  Ah well, it was a gorgeous drive.

   We have had many discussions on just storing the units,,, to protect not protect (covered) so want get into that

This subjects opens another  What if or This is how I do it... do not get me wrong,,, and why are so many things difficult with these rv's///

I always read turn everything off,, go in and run the genie every couple of weeks... I do 2/3 weeks  drive the Beast  once a month..  Now I'm confused again

   Does not leaving it plugged in and keeping the batteries charged all the time mess with the cycle of the battery?  I only have a converter.. but on our Roadtrek the inverter would run a lot even if not using power  Jeepers why does this get so confusing haha... I'm sure some of the old timers can answer this question about battery cycle etc
