      Thanks for the response, never cared much for work, so finally gave it up:D

       I'd sure like to. Chasing good railroad jobs has lost its luster. I'm ready to retire and just wrench on things.

      I got lucky and only worked for 2 companys over the years, the Erie Lackawana and then the Delaware and Hudson.  When the Erie went into Conrail I was able to bid on a D&H job and stayed there till I got put out to pasture.

    Moving to shreveport la

    If anyone lives in the area, we are planning on doing some camping...and naturally taking on stup I'd projects on the rv. I need some rv friends close!
  3. Hi Dave nice welding on the frame rail and hitch. I see you use a mig welder. Have you got gas hooked to the welder for gas shield welding? I have a small Linkin welder #120 for mig welding without the gas. Wish my welds looked as good. I am in the process of replacing my frame extention on my 18' Sunrader.

      Thanks, yeah I have mixed gas hooked up.

    Dolphin in the snow.. thing is a tank

    I am with you, it is the weight mostly, and good tires. Don't worry about salt, non here in golden. that is really a thing from your area. even Montana doesn't use salt!

    Dolphin in the snow.. thing is a tank

    nothing to be scared of really, it is back streets at low speeds. not that i am the worlds best driver but when you grow up driving in the snow you do get good at it. I took my drivers test at 15, driving an old rwd station wagon, in a blizzard! it is really not hard, just a few things you must learn that is all.
  7. We got some snow in Denver, after i dug out i decided to fire up the dolphin and see if would back out to the street in the snow. Thing is a beast! I drove around a bit and tried to get stuck. I finally succeeded but it took burying it almost up to the hood lol. too much fun.

    Generator For My 1989 Itasca Spirit

    I am also thinking about this issue. I now have no cab a/c because of motor swap, and I like ac. I have a roof ac that would work great at cooling the whole rig, but I need to power it. I own 2 honda eu2000i units but again where to you mount them, and you have to pull start them. I could build a box that would hold both, rig up a fuel system and mount to to the rear. I would much rather have a on board rig that fit in one of the side compartments with a push button start. I plan on using the ac alot!.

    OUCH! My Head...

    this one is an oldie but man it is still true. I have to warn everyone. there has got to be a way to make some visual cue. almost want to paint the bottom side of the cabover the yellow and black stripes with warning wrote on it. lol man, gota be something. old lady about knocks herself out every time we go some place.
