Does this mean if I have a problem with my Xantrex and confront it, that it will run away?

Can I assume that on a hot day when My fridge quits that when I open the bay I will see a white flag?  Perhaps it will quit for lunch?  Never buy what I buy, never it will always be discontinued.  LOL, John.

Ahoy, BusFolk!!!!!

I have a Prosine 2000.  It has been great.  Now, things do NOT look good.

I once had a Facel Vega (That's an automobile, for the younger set), and also a Peugot.

You can quote me:

THE FRENCH DO NOT HAVE CUSTOMERS.  THEY HAVE VICTIMS!!!!!

Bob,

You didn't have to admit to having bought a French Facel Vega....we aren't that strict here on our background checks. Huh  But to confess to having bought a SECOND French car, well, that is totally uncalled for and could create a serious bias. Grin

Did you ever share what kind of MPG you are getting out of your M11 with a Road R.?  Hp set up?  Really curious about that.  Sorry if you have to repeat yourself.

Thanks,

John

Ahoy, John,

Well  ------  A second French car does sort of impeach my credibilty.  "Yah, and there is a little pony at the bottom of that pile!!!!!"  --  Never did find that pony.

But --- Your question:::   My Eagle bus / M-11 mileage.  (Nice pony----).

OK:  Best mileage seen was two years ago through the midwest on a trip to Minnesota and the Oshkosh fly in.  About 2200 miles @ 12.7 mpg  Cruise at no more than 65mph, and with the A/C on.  Average for ~~11,000 miles, including lots of mountains and some short runs is 11.1 mpg.  I am fairly light for an Eagle-01, at ~~32,000lbs full-up.  THe significant factor is the manual transmission -w- overdrive.  At 65mph, I'm mosying along at about 1350 rpm.  OK, so some of you have heard me shift that big sucker, and wonder how I ever managed to land a jet on an aircraft carrier.  Truth is --  Lots easier than a bus with a ten speed, until it gets dark and nasty.  Then--  that 'black air' makes it a bit more demanding.

Other than that, we are off to The Tailhook gathering in Reno in a month, then Minnesota, Chicago, Pensacola Naval air museum, Oakie City, and return.  At Pensacola, I have flown one of the airplane species, the AJ-2 Savage, on a couple of cruises a long time ago. The exact airplane featured I flew eight times, and and the last flight was a carrier landing.  IT is in a museum, but at least I am NOT.

BTW  For you turbo guys:  That airplane with it's P&W R-2800's would crank out it's 2500 sea level horsepower at 42,000 feet altitude!!!  Any of our buses would likely not do too well up there.  But---  You needed a 'steam engineer's' liscence to fly that beast!!!

Enjoy  /s/  Bob
