I'll be staying at two sites this year around the 4,000' level, for two months periods each. In getting there, I'll be traveling at times above 7,000'. Are there any adjustments I need to make to my 2004 Itasca Suncruiser 38R to compensate for the altitude different (I'm normally at about 700')?

At first first I thought you were refering to an attitude adjustment, I had to put my glasses on to clarify that.

Now on to your question,
The only thing I know of is lowering the number in you sleep number bed if you have one, in fact you should do it before you do head to the higher elevation.

You have a great amount of incite that can better be applied toward finding solutions rather than wasting time in condescending commentary. https://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo.../icon_wink.gif

About the only other thing you may have to do is, adjust the flame on the gas water heater. Some are more sensitive to altitude than others. Wait till you get there to do that.

Tomcat15 - It took me awhile to stop laughing - and perhaps what you originally thought was correct anyway!!! I suspect that being a military retiree it was easier for me to laugh at anyway. I knew about the sleep number bed, but glad you reminded me. Other than adjusting the hot water heater when I get to Utah, it sounds like I'm pretty much ok. Incidentally, I really like the image of the F-15 coming out of the clouds.

If you run your generator when up there you may have to adjust the caruretor. The Onan Marquis Gold series has an altitude setting right on the carburetor that is calibrated in thousands of feet. At higher altitudes the carb will run rich so you need to lean it out. Be sure to return it back when you return though or else you'll run too lean and burn valves when you return to the low country.

Speaking of attitude adjustments. My wife and I live at 1000 feet msl and our cabin in Buffalo Wy is at 8000 feet. We've noticed that if we drive directly out there nonstop that on day two of our arrival we'll be real sluggish. I'm told that it's a light form of altitude sickness. So if you get up in the mountains and start looking around for the divorce papers. Just give it 24-48 hours. https://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo...icon_smile.gif By the way, there is a drug you can take for this and it is awful stuff. Better to just read a book.

DriVer,

I adjust my atitude regarding that reply, I'm sorry if it was out of character.

cghost,

The Air Craft is a Navy Super Hornet F18 at the point of just breaking the sound barrier and creating sonic boom. Typical of Navy Pilots to Going Beyond the call of duty.
