Much warmer last so the windows wide open and fantastic fan on high for some fresh air movement. We were both up before 5 am this morning well rested though and was a very warm 68F outside. With out awning up this morning I caught the sunset from our dining room window.

We got some computing and coffees done secure to coach and was down at Pettigrews Garage by 7:50 am. Dale checking with his code scanner for the intermittent misfire we have been having for a while. Last time we put in new spark plugs (they were due anyway at 100,000 miles. This time with some more testing and analyzing it was determined that cylinder 2 and 3 were miss firing. This Ford V-10 has 10 cylinders and 10 ignition coils He checked those two and they were the ones causing the misfire. Called the ford Dealer in new Hamburg and they had 2 in stock. They don't deliver parts but no problem Suzie was in new Hamburg anyway so picked them up.
While waiting for her to return with the coils Dale pulled the front wheels off to check our Brakes and as well as the rear ones. There were last done in 2013 and 14. He could not get the parts right away but said they should be done before we head south, Besides it was very, very hot there working in the direct sun. not a problem wheels back on Brakes will be done later this summer, The coils arrived here put them in and everything back together.
This was all done by 10 am so now for my test drive. And I have a drive we need to take the coach to Ayr about 15 minutes away to fill up our propane that has been on empty for 3 days now according to the guage, not empty yet but getting close. Pulled into Dan Ayr to fill our propane, a decent price here 71.9 cents a litre and it did take 71 litres of propane ($51.30) still have about 10 litres left when it was on empty. Not bad for almost 2 months between fillups and running our fridge, BBQ, propane heater, stove and water heater for that time. The good news with this test run NO MORE MISSFIRES!! Yahoo. This problem solved. I stopped told Dale and he is Happy too.
So back to Camp Awesome got set up and enjoyed light tasty lunch by 11:30 Puttered around for a bit then outside to enjoy this weather , supposed to be hot but not so much, was overcast and windy and by 2 pm we had a major downpour of rain. Not hot enough at all for the pool today maybe another day, We can still enjoy this outside weather protected from the wind and rain under our
the rain came down so very loud
We did get enjoy a nice happy hour with the rain under our awning then soon time to whip up supper.

Last night a drive down the road a few hundred yards checking for the sunset. The cows in the fired watching me so I stopped and watch then too.
Then did get a couple of interesting sunset photos to end a very nice day.
