|1.||Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). I used a medium pot and my candy thermometer. I made three at a time.|
|2.||Separate out the biscuits and cut a hole in the middle of each one, like you would a doughnut. I used a length of 3/4" PVC pipe from the art room that I dipped into flour to press out the holes. It is now part of my kitchen gear.|
You can get creative on this part and make different shapes. Just be sure not to make them too thick in any places, or they will not cook all the way through.
|3.||Carefully slide doughnuts into hot oil. I made the holes first and they came out very round. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain briefly on wire racks placed over baking sheets.|
|4.||Place the confectioners' sugar in a bowl and roll the hot doughnuts in the sugar. You could also use sugar and cinnamon or melted chocolate, or just plain.|
RV research: I had read somewhere that the shorter diesels had some problems with "popping" or "lurching." I read quite a few comments on the RV forums and the advice was to just be sure you did a good test drive on the highway with any rig before you decide to buy. Every comment from shorty owners was positive. This does not seem to be a really big problem.
The other issue I looked into was "salt air damage." Since the latest MH I've been looking into is in Monterey California, I wanted to know what kind of damage to look for. It seems body rust might be a problem. Also we should be sure to have the breaks and hydraulics carefully inspected for salt damage.
Good reasons to have a professional inspection done.
But first I will have to see the rig in person. Hope to make that happen this week.
