Where are we today ?
|Can see the nice sunrise with our awning up|
First thing this morning we secure our coach and were at Pettigrew's garage for 7:45. Dale is replacing a vacuum hose on the coach engine and also replacing as much gas line for our generator that he can get at. Removed the left rear duals to get access and installed 10 feet of new gas line right to the top of the gas tank. Also installed a new gas filter for the coach engine.
Every thing back together had to pressurized the fuel tank to get the genny to fire up. Sounds good! Ran for about 3 minutes and quit, ran out of gas. Two more times we did this and the same result. Solution remove the gas tank. Well that sounds pretty easy. But after investigation that involves removing our hydraulic levelling jacks, that just happen to have supports welded to the chassis. Gonna be a very big job! Not to mention very expensive.
So a solution thats works quite well but not as convenient, I picked up a 2 and 1/2 gallon gas can filled with gas and put the gas line in there. Genny fired up and ran for more than 30 minute under load no problem at all. Shut it down, now it will work when we need it an save more than a thousand dollars in labor that may or may not resolve the issues.
So after 6 hours at Pettigrew's back to "Camp Awesome" and set up shortly after 2 pm. Nice and sunny afternoon so finished mowing the lawn about 40 minutes. The mower ran great, it has a new battery this spring, so the charging system on the mower seems to be malfunctioning. Some day John may take a look at it but for now I can make it work.
Relax a bit with our e readers and put together a couple chicken kabobs ( I marinated some chicken breast for a while) for supper with another tasty salad. Really enjoying these salads more than every before.
|low and slow as usual done perfect on our Q|
Another fine day that was pretty productive with wonderful sunny weather though a bit cooler than we like. Can't help it fall is in the air and it will get much cooler yet before we hit warmer temps.
Thanks for the peek again and really hope you had an awesome day too.
