The heater did not do a very good job of keeping me warm going over the mountains on I-75. The sign said that it was minus one degree. The engine temp was over 200 degrees. The dash had gauges for water, transmission and engine oil temp. I noticed that in hard climbs that the engine oil would heat up first and cool down last. The newly overhauled 440 ran great. I thought that the glass pack mufflers were a little loud. The sellers told me that they got 17 miles per gallon. I did not believe that. Shaggy and the Winnebago always got between 6 and 7 miles per gallon, which was what I expected. I stayed all night at my cousins in Morehead, Kentucky. It was a good drive home. I averaged 7 miles per gallon. When I braked, there was a lot of noise that I recognized as bad king pins. It ran great. i would worry about the king pins next spring.
The next problem was caused by the heavy snow of 2007. The weight of the snow broke off the drivers side windshield wiper.
The passenger side survived. Luckily, I had some spare wiper motors from the spare Travcos that I used to own.
