|2016 Toyota Tacoma Off Road|
In any case, I'm now the proud owner of a 2016 Tacoma short bed, off road. Even without the bells & whistles "premium" packages, it is pretty amazing how far dashboards have come since the 2010 RAV4. It is going to take a few weeks to adjust. My favorite gimmick is the door unlocks when I get within 2' of it. The "key" stays in my pocket - just push a button. My iPhone bluetooth to the Tacoma, loading all my contacts, etc. It even "rings" over the vehicle sound system with my iPhone ring tones. I'm sure that any of you that have a new vehicle are not all that impressed, but I am!
As to the trailer, I have replaced the Go Power solar controller with a Blue Skies SB 3000i. It can be adjusted to meet the charging specifications for the Interstate 6V batteries, while the Go Power is pretty much factory set to lower voltages.
I also washed & waxed it, added a stiffer mattress, and did a major cleaning - lots of desert dust in all the cracks & crevices.
The plans for a trip to New England are firming up - I'll probably be heading out around July 20th with the trailer, haul it back to Oswego, then go for a visit on Nantucket with my brother in August.
Until Next time -
