I have been retired for awhile and my DW retired May 1st so we have been busy packing and getting the RV ready for a 3 month retirement trip. We left Seattle yesterday headed for the Yakima Indian RV resort and casino across I-90. All went well and we arrived as planned. I parked the RV by our spot and unhitched the toad then proceeded to park it to find I had no brakes. Just barely if I ready smashed hard. It was late and wondered how we would fix this. This AM I looked under the steering wheel area just to be sure only to find that I had left a battery lantern under there when I installed the CB and it was lodged under the brake pedal!! The Lord must have been with us to wait until then and not over the mountains at 65-70 mph with a Toad. Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.

Boy I hear that. We sure are glad you found it instead of some over someone who was looking to get your money. Guess the onlything left is to get new batteries.
