Our Awesome Travels
Taken In Quartzsite Arizona Dec 7th 2015

Friday, May 30, 2014

A perfect travel day it was, then a few issues with our coach.

Where are we today ?
        Our day started perfectly, warm sunny and we anxious to get on the road slowly. Only have a 90 minute drive so no rush. Walkabouts and stuff. Pulled our coach out to hook up the car, opened the door and electric step broke! Hm same part I replaced 7 years ago. Well hooked up the car I a fired up our generator to exercise it while on the road. Ran a few minutes and quit, would not start again Hmm...
Our site this morning nice and quiet here
       A beautiful country drive and arrived in Plattsville before noon.
huge farm machinery on the road
perfect day for a drive
        Pulled into camp awesome here in Plattsville and we smell something like brakes hmmm.... need to be looked at.
        Got setup and checked the step again, ordered the part, should be here next week. Checked with Pettigrew's Garage in town and will take our coach there next week for service, oil change and brakes. Then visitation at the funeral home here for a dear friend who had a massive heart attack only 54 years old (so sad).
      Back home Suzie headed off to pick up her mother to take to the Mennonite Relief sale in New Hamburg for the friday night auction. Nephew Greg is an Auctioneer and is auctioning there tonight. While she was gone I investigated our Onan Generator problem. Looks like the fuel pump again. No fuel and the pump does not run. We just had it replaced in Quartzsite this year. 90 day warranty and its passed that now. I have a few more things to check but looks like I will be replacing that fuel pump again. They say bad things come in threes and I believe that because thats what happened today. We here for a week and hope to get those issues resolved. Looks like we will be busy.
        While Suzie was gone I had some leftover fish and noodles for supper, no need to cook tonight. That make you happy Paul Dahl? 
        The Relief Sale again tomorrow and I will check it out for a while, think Suzie spending the day there with her mother. I have my work cut out here.
       Thanks again for stopping on by and hope you had a wonderful day to, with no repair issues to deal with.

  5. Things do come in threes. Hopefully, these will soon be behind you. We had a step problem last year and had that fixed. Can't believe everything starting falling apart on the same day. We hate problems whether they come in ones or threes. Threes are way too many. Tomorrow will be better!

    1. It won't be cheap but it will be reasonable.

  9. That's what I say, things happen in three's, some more expensive than others. It is a house on wheels and there are bound to be things that need to be worked on. On the bright side, they are all fixable and it really could have been something more major.
