We're hoping that Cummins will come through and take care of whatever is causing the oil leak. I'm sorta on pins and needles. No word today. We can't absorb another $4600 or $2600 bill for repairs so close together. Don't think I've even mentioned that the rear camera is not working. No signal to the monitor in the cab. So, I'm backing up blind. Heck, at this rate I'll never get to retire. Ha!
Mel... mirrors adjust for a reason - are Bows electric mirrors? Before backing in - I always adjust the mirrors to see where I'm going. The back up camera isn't that big a deal.

Jeff can tell you about replacing a back up camera - but don't listen to him about actually backing up!

[COLOR="red"]Well look who's spoke up from TOT!
Ok two things get you on the Rainbow with all these mutants! 1) Name something your coach doesn't have, But, you don't miss! 2) make the following declaration on this thread " The Journey Is the Destination". Then the committee meets, background checks are made and payoffs occurs and Rvm#1 or Rvm#2 will post the results along with official, not to be duplicated number![/COLOR[/QUOTE]

Well done Tim!

When ever it hits anyone's pocket book it is not a comforting story. However, it is just part of the journey. I found out I have a wobbly driver side mirror. It is a Velvac and seems the wobbliness is from some internal tightening mechanism. Oh well, duct tape and super glue! New one is about $360. Just a hole in the rode for pouring money into. I'll have to stop eating out so much - well, maybe not.

I hope Cummins owns up to it and fixes it for you. Ohhmms for Bow.

Regarding the condenser, would the insurance take care of that. Seems it was busted when being moved.

Ted,

Welcome to the group. You will never enjoy being in with a bunch of misfits more. Strange thing is we all seem to regard one another as extended family.

Looking forward to eventually meeting up with some of you soon.

They are going to bypass some exhaust blower pulley or take it out and put a shorter belt on and we should be on our way.

Last night Ed mentioned that they may have over tightened the belt when working on the AC.... causing the alternator to size up.... it may be the idler pully.... but whatever it is... it sounds simple and not too expensive.... ommms and safety to you both! The pork butts go on the smoker in a bit...

Didn't want to run generator all night, no hookups in the mechanic parking lot...lol so we ran generator a bit this AM and bit last night to run water pump and charge phone then shut everything down and went to sleep. Need a battery or check it out perhaps also as it wasn't holding charge for long. We'll be on the road here before too long. They are trying to find a right sized belt that will work, then we need to stop for gas, and maybe a battery. We'll get on the road earlier than we did yesterday anyway. Lol
