    Part 2 of 2 See part 1 first. Sorry for being long winded.

    Glad I didn't since I now have a advice question for you. We have a 35' Adventurer V-10 with Banks exhaust headers, giving us a little over 400HP. Goes up mountains good, but I'd like more power. Not really feasible without a turbo and forget that.
    Oh yeah, here's the question. Our friend and neighbors will be buying a Tiffin diesel, 3 slides, 31 foot with a Cummings 275HP engine. Do you have any opinion on whether this is enough power or not? I'm also and engineer, so know all about torque, horsepower and what it means, but have not experienced a turbo diesel like that. any opinion?

    I may also create a new post with this question, if I feel like getting blasted with "energetic" responses.
    Thanks, Richard

    It was shortly after you sent your reply, that my wife and I took a 9 week trip around the country and Canada. We needed 6 more MONTHS! Felt rushed, but saw dozens of amazing places including Yellowstone and Glacier. Strangely, three highlights were "Avenue of the Giants" (near Eureka, CA) Glacier N.P., and Banff, Canada. Avenue of the Giants is a favorite, because of the scenery and, importantly, much less crowded than the national parks, where we had great difficulty finding parking places. School was out, so everyone was there. In Avenue we could roam amongst some of the Sequoia trails and be the only ones there. Very eerie feeling, like you're an ant.
    Anyway, that's my excuse for not getting back sooner.

    Oops. they sat too long, so this is part 1.

    Cooperhawk,
    Great decision. You'll love it.
    I'm sending this privately (I guess), because I saw you were also retired ATC.
    I retired in 2004 from GSP tower/approach control, but also was a certified GS-14 at New York Center, Miami Center and Memphis Center.
    Got fired in 1981 from Miami (stupid strike) and was rehired at Memphis in1998, then to GSP (Greenville/ Spartanburg International).
    Still in Greenville area and love it.
    Richard
