Exciting

Just to let everyone know, a Winnibago Voyage will traverse 2 feet of water with no effort at all. Other than the pucker factor that surrounds the driver!!!!!!

And, you were going very slow and praying that the DW didn't say "I told you not to ..."

No, that was leaving a flooded Rv park outside of Nashville at 0700 last Sunday after waking up to a guy beating on the door telling me I'd better unhook and get outa there

Watch those wheel bearings if it got that deep. Floor waters have a of dirt and grit in the water.

150 mile and no problems. I think the seals are tight enough to keep the crud out. The rig has only 10K miles

check the rear differential fluid for water contamination. if there is water in it it the oil will look milky. the differential is vented and water can enter the vent.
replacing water logged fluid is much less expensive than replacing the differential and rear wheel bearings which are lubed by the differential oil.
the allison tranny is vented also. check for milky fluid.

Thanks for the tip. As soon as I get the ambition and the ground drys up enough in the RV park in Fort Knox, I'm going to take a trip underneath and pull some plugs. I actually don't think the water got as hi as I thought because the belly boxes were dry. But then the doors could be sealed better than I thought.
