Just so ya'll don't worry about me when you don't hear from me for a week....starting Saturday I'll be gone a week without internet for the most part. Counselor at a girls camp in the Ozarks. Management frowns upon electronic devices... we are supposed to be out enjoying nature with about 8-10 girls all 10-11 year olds 24/7.

Well, just glad to hear that it didn't turn out this way...


Be safe & keep in contact, as we might cross paths.

Thanks for the warning Marty. All other Mutants take note of the consideration Marty has shown by letting us know in advance so we don't send search and rescue out looking for her.

And Marty, don't ya remember being under the covers after light's out with a flashlight? Your cell phone won't need extra illumination for you to just check in and let us know that girls haven't short sheeted your bed. You are a braver woman than I. I think I'd murder one of the little darlings if I had them for a week.

It gets a little more difficult each year and for the last 2-3 years, I've pondered whether this one is the last time or not...

Wayne, are you sure it wasn't Camping World that you took it to? A few years ago, I took our MH to Camping World to have them work on the HW heater. After picking it up, something told me to check the connections, to make sure that the water's connection was turned back on. To my surprise, I found the hoses running to the heater were disconnected. If we had turned the water pump on, the bedroom would have been flooded.

I read your other post before I replied. I just thought you were a little better seasoned.... I mean accustomed to SNAFU with these sorts of things. The fist and logical reaction is to panic and get PO'd - but experience should kick in and tell ya - sit down - cool off - relax and think a minute. Remember my refrigerator last summer - I told the guy working on it - "I'm going on vacation - close er up - we're leaving. There will be a mobil guy where we're going who knows what he's doing." Apparently most of the problem was his wimpy extension cord and weak 120 cause we've been good ever since.

But - as Larry says -

I've found CW does not have a lock on morons. There are independents and pros out there that I wonder how they find their way to work. See my post on refrigerator. And I know there is still an issue in that the baffle is positioned in a way that nearly defeats the two stock fans - and the 2 fans I had the guy add are not positioned correctly either. And all of this was done by a guy on the David Force List of folks who install Amish unit's in DFW area.

Anyone know what this is located on the bottom of the A Frame?
The other side of the coach has the same setup but the wheel is on the right hand side.

There's also a couple of shock absorber look-a-like thing-a-mes hooked to a duplicate of the steering arm.

To answer Cindy's question and to make lots of you jealous -- it has been beautiful here in southern Washington for the last 2 weeks. Sunny everyday, high in the mid to upper 60s with a bit of a breeze on the river. Nights cool down to the mid 50s. It has just clouded up here with scattered showers predicted for this afternoon.

We got about 4" of scattered showers north of you this morning.

It looks like a steering assist that should help keep steering stable and also help keep wheels more controllable in case of a blow out.

Thanks Don, I was hoping that was what it was. Been spending some time under the coach greasing, oiling and checking things out and these kind of intrigued me.
