It is time to prepare for our journey back. This year we will be staying in Naples, Florida for a week. It involves a 400 mile detour down the Florida peninsula, and it was a favorite annual destination before we became fulltimers. With diesel prices this low, it is quite inexpensive to cover the extra miles.
|Our route to Ontario, which will cover 4200 miles (6720 km)|
It is well into spring here in Southern California. Daily temperatures are consistently around 80F (27C). Everything has become very green here in the resort.
|We will miss this buildout, with all the facilities. We are returning next winter to the same lot.|
-Sanitize onboard freshwater tank using bleach, flush and fill to 50% for use on route
-Adjust fifthwheel brakes
-Lubricate wet bolts on the leaf spring shackles
-Change oil in truck using Rotella T6 synthetic and GM filter (performed by Walmart)
-Check all other truck fluids
-Lubricate truck front suspension
-Check all tire pressures and adjust if necessary
-Check tightness of fifthwheel hitch mounting bolts in truck, and inspect entire hitch assembly
I will be posting to this blog daily as we travel, so please take a look every day to see where we are, starting on April 7.
