In this thread you can post your travels in your Marathon Coach Motorhome. When posting you must include a picture of your coach at your location.

Please include other campground details such as cellular strength so people know what carriers work or not, OTA and SAT capability, any highlights or amenities you'd like to share. If you're a drone pilot then feel free to take videos and upload to your YouTube channel and add a link to your video as well for even better presentation of your campground.

Refer to this post on how to optimally include your pictures in your post:

ATT and Verizon are terrible in the pepwave. The DW is trying to do a zoom call and I see daggers coming from her eyes.

I broke every one of @Neal’s rules. More than once.

1) Don’t go into a park at night. Not once but twice. It took my skilled maneuvering and three people along with a shoe horn and good grease to get into a spot. Thankfully landscape and human lives were spared.

2) don’t trust your Garmin or whatever goes to be 100% accurate. We ended up in a trailer park of senior citizens (1st night) roused from their sleep with the rumble sound of a prevost trying to turn around with a tow car. Let’s say I wasn’t welcome to move there. Oh and the Garmin led me through Las Vegas rush hour traffic last night. Very nice surrounded by crazy drivers.

3) trust but verify. While trying to unmanuever in the trailer park I unhooked the toad. Uh dead battery. We just changed to AF1 braking system. We had no jumper cables either. A friendly guy came along had a good laugh and jumped us. Along with we opted to take Highway 89 out of Oregon. A lovely scenic road in daylight hours. At night, the road of terror. Up down and nice sharp sweeping turns in pitch darkness. I prayed a deer wouldn’t jump out. I swear from the street view in rv trip wizard it looked fine. Just forgot the nighttime part. I think the DW has the divorce lawyer on speed dial after this.

It’s all good @sheridany , it’s all good.
Remember, Newmar still makes a nice coach 10+ feet shorter than your beautiful Marathon😎😁. You can always trade.

I had an interesting message on the gps on the way here. I was less than 1/2 mile from the road that the campground is on and the gps said “leave the road”. Uhhhh? No place to turn around. Fortunately, just up ahead I saw a sign for the turn onto the road where the campground was.

Driving these big things sure has its moments.
