Thanks for the info Jack.
There's been a turn of events that surprisingly happened today of all days!
It looks like there is a strong possibility that the truck may be in my possession as early as next week! Seems the owner/seller has purchased a race car in Brandon Fl about 20-30 min from me and has offered to deliver the truck to me for the cost of fuel. He plans to trailer his truck down behind the hauler that I'm buying and then trailering the race car back home with his truck! It's a win win for me, I think!
Will know definitely Monday how this plays out!

Ros; I would appreciate a note if you decide to pass on the Prevost. Not going to muddy waters on any possible deal.  I have owned 3 XL's and have allot of parts and accumulated experience with them. Plan on 4 1/2 to 5mpg without mods.  They are tuff. Might drive 5 ft or last another 200,000 miles. Would be worth a air line ticket to find out.  Plus with the factory hitch they are designed to pull good size trailers. That looks like a 10,000 lb hitch.(standard equip) 20,000 lb was available.

We usually stopped every so often to get out and stretch our legs, plus walk and clean up after our two 5 pound small killer attack dogs.   Before we would leave on our trips, we would plot out what we wanted to see, what we may want to see, where to stop and either make lunch or where to eat at some untried restaurant.  We tried never to run out more than half a fuel tank.  When we could, we would stop at a gas station and sometime top off the tanks so we would have enough to get back home.  Just us.

Had a gas gage, but it did not work.  So I measured the fuel tanks and then figured out a reason net fuel capacity.  Experience gave us our fuel consumption rate.  The rest was easy.  We made frequent fuel stops along with all the other stops.  This took a slight burden of paranoia off my shoulders and made for a more fun trip.  We always knew how much fuel and water we had left.  We used a broom stick handle.  Also used it for the water tanks at first.  Worked just fine.  We did fix that pesky gas gage.

  Hi;
     I also have a Trace inverter.  You might check your house batteries.
     The inverter needs battery power (12vdc or 24vdc) to keep the automatic
     transfer switch energized.
                                           Good luck,   Merle.   

      Exactly the same as my Outback -- comment above.   B H

Thanks for the inputs, the batteries are all fine the batteries are in one side of a
The 2nd bay and our temps were in the 20s but there is no air circulation. I will have to pull cover on inverter to check for dust, dirt dobber nest and crude as well as cooling fan.

A friend of mine has a couple GMC 4905s in Pueblo. Could be mistaken for a 5 if your friend wasn't a bus guy.

Might just use a regular one and put a piece of "T" aluminum on the top to counter top around the three sides so nothing could go between it. We cook lots of things on it, wife make a lot of winter soups to freeze etc and nothing ever gets down there. Also have 2 screws holding the whole thing in and when they are pulled out you just slide the whole thing forward to clean out the box it sits in which I lines with "Hardy-Backer".

Used home appliance stores?  Like already said better, used RV appliance or recycling stores?  I am thinking you may need an apartment sized stove/oven that can be easily converted to propane?  Also consider a small cabin or expensive marine model?  Or maybe consider a induction electric top top and a small microwave only? 

Memory tells me USN WW2 submarines had small galleys yet they provided three hot meals daily, plus snacks, for over 60 sailors. Many very nice galleys on large yachts also had very small cooking spaces and did just fine.  We cooked for years on just a 12VDC cook top, then a Coleman gasoline cook stove.  HB of CJ (old coot)
