That is a really nice RV Moon! Is it a diesel? Also, I am about to replace the roof a/c on mine. The existing one works well but does not have heat. If you are needing a roof a/c, (I know we may not need it soon due to cold weather), but I would be happy to give it to you free!
It takes regular unleaded gas.
It's a V8.
Mine is a 4 cylinder. Trying to merge on the interstate is like riding a turtle.

The concept of pay and value are interesting parameters. Pay as a 'value' to the business seems to be a concession of capitalism and 'bottom-line-thinking' that has led to a great deal of exploitation.
I guess it depends on how you look at it. It's the people at the bottom level that are doing all the actual work, without them the company ceases to exist. Above them are managers where I often wonder if they are adding any value at all. At the top you have these CEOs who get millions where I seriously doubt they are worth it.

And especially the stupid idea that a manager has to get more than the people they are managing. That's such a load of crap.

It's a hard problem sure. An experienced developer can be easily 10 to 100 times more productive than a junior, but they are not paid that much more (unfortunately).

NICE RIG, Moon :D

One thing about a Class-A RV is that once you start the engine,
the journey begins :D

Have you hooked a tow-bar to Jax or Jenn's car :?: Hitch it to the
back of your rig so when you reach your destination, you can still
get somewhere without moving the RV. Then have FUN :!: :D
Thanks U.A.

When we went to Gatewood, as it was only about a 2.5 hour drive. Jenn just followed me in her car. There is a crack in the windshield that I'm going to need to save for in the event the inspector doesn't pass it next August. If he gives me the go ahead on another year I may take the savings and buy the tow bar. My neighbor allowed that his particular inspector has been letting it slide for eight years now since it's on the passenger side and the crack is mostly confined to the top and hasn't gotten any worse.

That's one trip [to the inspection station], I'll be wearing my "good old boy bibs" and trying to act like a normal country boy... :wink:

Eventually though, that inspector is going to retire and I'll just have to pony up the cash though... it's coming. Maybe we'll be in Tennessee by then and it won't matter... 8)

Since you have four-footed kids and big boy toys, maybe it won't matter, but the article below that I was perusing last night sure gave me qualms about anything back in the Volunteer State where I spent some time at the NAS many years ago -- at least I got a cheap pilots license, but as the tend to say in that part of the south:

You’re not being mean, you’re bein’ ugly. seems to apply still today.

Having read the article, I feel the entire bunch from the judge to the police officers should be out of work and in jail. What they did to these children is nothing less than child abuse in the 1st degree. The parents should sue the entire bunch as well as the county for millions of dollars for each child that was subjected to this barbaric treatment. :x :x :x :x
