Tried out the "New" TV yesterday

Kitty and I took Sunny 17 for a little spin yesterday, to see how the "New" TV was going to work out. The truck did very well, for a sixteen year old truck! The ride was MUCH nicer, than towing it with the '05 F350. I would guess that the longer wheelbase makes a big difference. The chucking was almost non-existent. Only had two minor issues during the trip. The right-rear hub cap decided to come off and I forgot to take the temporary and expired license plate off. Both issues resolved quickly!

For some reason, I also had much less trouble backing the trailer into it's spot. Kitty even complimented me on it. High praise, coming from her!

Here they are, just after getting it back in it's spot:

The fact that this truck will burn my home made fuel, means that we won't be limited in where we want to go.

I do need to fix the turbocharger up pipe gaskets, before we head for Sunny 17's maiden camping trip next weekend! It's a 5-7 hour job, if you know what you are doing... I've never done it before....
