First trip out this year and one of my basement compartment door latches fails while closed. It's a bus style door with 4 latches. Not sure how I'm going to break in.

I still have to fix the Aqua Hot endless hot water the isn't "endless"

Leveling system didn't work again after replacing one of the jacks and now have to look into that before holidays! That should be good for a $2000 bill at least!
Bummer, Les. Sometimes I think I'm not really cut out for RVing. :gasp:

I hope Larry is doing OK, Di. I didn't know about your slide damage...dang.

We spent last week doing "annual maintenance" stuff on our Bounder, which included chasing a small leak in the bedroom slide. Hopefully we found it, by slathering sealant on every seam and screw hole.

Yesterday a storm blew through our neighborhood, knocking down several trees and part of our back fence. This morning hub and his brother were digging post holes and broke the natural gas line. Oops!! Fun times.

Thanks for the concern all we have limped to a ford dealer with hopes they can fix it tomorrow. I need all the prayers and ohms we can get. First trip 2000 mi. 280 to go. We can go 20 miles then the transmission over heats. Removed the jeep still 20 miles then stop for a hour. I need the front seal fixed fluid and filter changed and hope that fixes it. I wish I could just do it here but u bet walmart would get mad. I'm praying for you all to have better luck then me. We love and miss y'all.

Jeff I'm with you buddy! So glad I don't have the S/B maintenance to deal with.

Dwayne sorry to hear about your MoHo problems. You guys have definitely had more than your share.

We are gonna be heading out week after next and I'm praying we get a brake from problems too. Still no word from Blue Ox about what they are willing to do if anything so I went ahead and ordered another hitch and baseplate. I just can't help but believe our baseplate had some type of issue for it to let go of the connector and that connector is bent pretty bad. Would show the pics but I keep getting msg that I exceed my quota.

Anyway, safe travels to all our mutant family and we will see you on the rainbow!

Sending oooommmsss to those that need them.
4.5 hours later, stripped off some false body panels on each side of the compartment door and sprung the latches on the bus door, took the door off all the lift hardware, took the back off the door, took the door latch apart, got it to work, did everything in reverse.

Bus door fixed. $0 spent!

Yep! There are lots of things I don't miss about the S&B -- lawn care, utility bills, mortgage payments, real estate taxes, worrying about resell value, painting, shoveling snow, enduring months of extreme weather, resealing the driveway ...

I feel for those of you that have to do upkeep on an RV and a S&B.

Hi Jim. Did Ginny make it in on Friday? Looking forward to seeing you guys soon. We begin the journey that way tomorrow. Will make Pueblo Tuesday. Then on to magic mountain. Can't wait to catch up. Been too long.

Hey Les !!!,

I can certainly understand your feud with your Beaver, mine however is treating me like a King, ( I'm also knocking on wood as I type this ) when I had a S&B I really liked it very much, but in the true Mutant way I am finding out I don't miss it either.

Party on Garth .....

Cheers !!;

Woah! I'd be pretty nervous about now! Bet you're pacing the floor! News any better on containment? Or is that just a laughable question?
