    While on my midwest drive I saw a lot of travel trailers and 5th wheels. Lots of Class A and C motorhomes, too. One that looked nice as I passed it was a model from Leisure Travel Vans.

    /me will rent such things if he wants to drive around, for many reasons including lack of parking for one

    Removed the two mismatched Interstate type 24 marine batteries, hauled them up to Williston, and bought two Trojan T-105 flooded lead acid 225 Ah @ 20 A 6 V batteries, fabricated an AWG 4 jumper to connect them, and put them in the garage on a charger (they arrived at 75%).

    Tomorrow a Century Plastics: battery box is supposed to arrive, and I'll start installing them on the pod.

    Aren't military trucks designed to break down a lot to keep the troops entertained with *something*?

    Cat diesel and an Allison automatic. Pretty straightforward "big truck" underpinnings there. The tire pressure system and the like may cause more problems.

    Didn't that engine drop a valve and blow up the block almost immediately? Nah, like all military hardware, those are built for continuous expensive maintenance.
