I am a few weeks into travelling the country in my 2002 HD that I bought a few months ago. I modified the second row seat and fold out table area to create a high tech workstation with a laptop and two additional 27" monitors all running off of 12 volt system without DC>AC inverters. When they are all cranked up, they only draw 9 amps. Also gutted the carpeting, added a subfloor and put bamboo vinyl planking down. It looks spectacular, and smells cleaner already!
I am the owner of a software company and am finally cutting the cord of the office lifestyle to embark on an epic adventure of living on the road and visiting clients all over north America. It's just the beginning of my trip, but so far it's been a lot of fun.
I have a lot to learn about the Rialta, especially some of the heating and water system details. I have been staying at friends homes along the way primarily, but soon will be having to depend upon some of the features of the Rialta for self sufficiency.
Tires were a potential disaster for me, as my local dealers told me that I was in a heap of trouble when they couldn't find anything for me. Luckily I found a post here and was directed to tiresbyweb.com, and they were able to send tires to one of the destinations that I was heading and with a little planning the ordeal went smoothly. I ended up changing out the smaller tires in the front with the same size as in the back.
I found no handling issues and mileage was about the same. The folks at tiresbyweb.com said they help a lot of Rialta owners and they have seen dozens of people make this switch. Easier to deal with a spare, and no need to be stuck somewhere waiting for a tire to be shipped if there is a problem.
Looking forward learning more and sharing in this forum.
