The REV facility in Alvarado is still being finished and the day after our arrival they opened their new RV 'campground' where RV'ers in for service can stay in their coaches. They provide 50Amp service and water hookups but no sewer, though they do have 2-3 dump stations on the property.

an even nicer and larger waiting room for drivers having work done on their trucks.
The difference was uncanny, Whereas we only got up to an 12.8V reading when the old batteries were fully charged, which then quickly downgraded to around 12.2 - 12.4V, after changing all the house batteries for new Interstate ones, the 'full' reading (with noo generator or shore power on) was 14.2 -14.3, which then downgraded to 12.7 - 12.8 (a normal full reading). With the new batteries we can dry camp for 8-10 hours with the batteries still at 50% (12.2V) the next morning.
This was truly interesting. We have all seen "Wide Loads" usually taking the full width of a lane and sometimes even extending a little over the lane lines, but here in Texas, just to prove that "everything is always BIGGER in Texas" this WIDE LOAD was composed of two semis in tandem, side by side, with about 100 wheels on the ground, an escort truck in front and in back, plus a bucket truck to lift up low hanging electric lines across the roadway, AND 4 MOTORCYCLE COPS forcing or stopping traffic unto the shoulder of the oncoming traffic. We have no idea what they were hauling, but it looked like a massive generator.
