Iíve got the cure:

153Db of train horns!! I can get 11 seconds of full volume before they start to fade.

Yes sir! Got those as well. The train horns and a 3 gal. air tank is an attention getter! I installed mine with a momentary push button and a spst push button that is wired to factory horns. That way don't have to look for button as can switch to make it work with steering wheel horn. It does get the attention of those about to cut you off!

Miles a day?

I didnít want to wire mine to the steering wheel horn in case I forgot to turn them off. After all they arenít really law enforcement ďfriendlyĒ. I went with a 5 gal tank Incase I wanted to use it for filling tires and such.

I've got onto the habit of switching horn over when I hitch up, It's on my "pre-flight" checklist which CRS has required.
My horns, tank and compressor came as a kit. Mounted tank, which has compressor mounted on top, in truck bed behind wheel well. Can still use bed to load 4' X 8' sheets with no interference. Also mounted air chuck quick disconnect to bed rail and with 3 gal of 150 p.s.i. have no issue with airing tires. The compressore is high volume so if airing a large tire I just let truck idle so compressor will run.
The on board air is handy for the air bags as well. I have solenoids to air up and exhaust the air bags with redundant gauges and switches in the cab and at the rear of the truck bed where I can reach it with the tailgate up. With the rearview cameras it makes hitching and unhitching a breeze. The Husky Brute 4500 tongue jack with remote control helps to.
All of this to compensate for the 5 surgeries on the left arm/shoulder and 6 on the cervical spine.

Thanks for all the input. We just finished our first road trip to Florida from Michigan. We took our time, about 200 mi. a day. Granted we were in pretty much accessible territory when it comes to stops and fuel, but, got into a bit of rhythm of the road.Been a while since we've traveled, but it's a building block for longer trips. We are considering going full-time, but, we realize we will probably need to upgrade to 5th wheel or motorhome, and this trip is just a trial run. Looking forward to being on the road and seeing America.
