Steve, Kate and I do the same thing! But with the purchase of the Tiffin, we've got Christmases, birthdays and anniversaries covered til we're 90!

Mutants, please turn up the mohmmmms meter for poor Murphy. We are "this close" to picking up our Tiffin (this Wednesday), and Murphy decided to throw one more problem at us. (Is she mad at us for wanting to get rid of her?)

We are dry camped in Prescott Nat'l Forest. After parking, I decided I needed to move the coach forward in the campsite a bit. Cranked her up, raised the jacks (slide was in), pushed brake in and put her in drive. She would not go forward and the brake popped back out. This happened on each attempt to put it in gear and go forward. Nada. Zilch. Of course, I suspected something with the brake. So I pushed hard on the brake pedal and it went all the way to the floor. Sigh. Could it be a broken cable or something? I know nothing about brakes on a motorcoach.

We decided to fuhgetaboutit til Tuesday morning, when we have to be out of the campground at noon. I'll call Good Sam's roadside assist that morning and get a tow to a shop. We are holding our breath that it won't be another $4,600 repair. Trying to stay calm and just enjoy each day we have in this beautiful site. Well find out on Tuesday what the deal is. And we pick up our new ride on Wednesday, so we have something to look forward to!

Mel, brakes should not go all the way down when pressed. You have a fluid problem in either the lines, the master cylinder or the calipers.

Click you heels, spins in a circle three times with your eyes closed and yell "DWAYNE!!!"
Oh what the heck couldn't hurt could it?

Okay, let us know whey you are gong to SA. A very Happy Anniversary to both of you, and many more to come.

Barb, you do have an EGR valve but it is nothing compared to a diesel engine. Even "Smarty" has one.

Thanks Wayne we will let you two know when we know

Nice try, Steve! But it will never happen. You can't hide the greatness of any RVM.

As long as it doesn't seem like it's been 58 years I'd say you are doing something right. Congrats!
