Day 12 - Corvallis, OR

We left the Sunriver RV Park at about 9:30 this morning. Since all of their campsites were just electric and water, the first task was to empty the tanks. This was the first actual test of our tank valves since they were replaced last year. No issues after six days of use. Along Hwy 97, there was smoke from a brush fire along the highway east of Crescent. It looks like it just started this morning. Otherwise, it was an uneventful drive. I opted to head south on 97 then take Hwy 58 into Eugene instead of going through Bend and Sisters as Google was recommending since it is a much more RV friendly road.

I had ordered different LED bulbs from Amazon. The original ones had a color temperature of 3000K and the new ones are 5000K. But they are supposedly three times brighter. The color is definitely whiter but definitely brighter. And only $8 for a pack of ten bulbs. When I had the tail light apart, I checked out the bulbs and also ordered red tail/brake bulbs and some super bright backup bulbs. While I was at it, I ordered amber and red bulbs for all of the marker lamps.


  1. Richard said he could get used to the weather in Bend. One downside was the freezing or close to freezing temperatures we had. Today we arrived in Corvallis with the temps in the 80's. No freezing tonight! No worry about the pipes and stuff freezing!

  2. Sounds like your trip is going great, and your RV updates are working out well too! :-)
