We've already been on one little trip, up to our house in Arkansas. Keep in mind our "house" up there is really a cabin, up in the woods.
I noticed on the way up that our voltage gauge looked kind of low, and kept getting lower. We got it parked up by our house when the voltage got too low to run. You don't know panic until you realize you are over a mile up a dirt road from the nearest paved road, it's Sunday afternoon, the next day is a holiday, and you're supposed to be to work the next evening 300 miles away!
I took the alternator off, a real trick since you have to do the work from the top of the "doghouse" inside the motor home. I got it to the auto parts store as soon as it opened, and they tested it, found it bad, and said they didn't have one in stock, but there was one up in Fort Smith, an hour north. My brother, who lives in our house, drove me up and we got the part. I got it installed, but by that time, dispatch was worried I wouldn't be rested enough to work all night.
The cats, especially Ella, definitely did NOT like it!
Oh, and it's called a 24-footer, although it's actually 26 feet long. It's kind of an odd-ball. It doesn't have a separate bedroom; the bed lowers electrically down from the ceiling. This makes it possible to have a much larger living area, for its short size.
