Mel, Sweet one... my intuition is telling me the oil cap isn't the biggest deal, the brakes are worrying me... they shouldn't be squealing, and I certainly don't think stressing them out by driving through mountains to get to Colorado is a good idea.....This one suggested might be a better idea. Normally, I wouldn't comment about this, but, I got red flags popping up in my brain about this and just am not at peace to keep my mouth shut.....

The place we stayed at for a very long 8 days was TransWest Freight Liner, it was a long time on an extension cord, but they did do quality work.

Wayne I will be boondocking a lot. But I'm just a phone call away.

I keep looking at it going where do I start but I need to quit just looking and do stuff to it. I have opened up some storage in one bay and made plans to put a cat room in the basement for the litter box with a trap door so it can just go down and up as it wants.
Then figure out this aqua hot it heats the engine coach and hot water. But the hot water part has never been hooked up. So a reading I shall try. If that fails I'll just figure it out as I go. It has a 10 Atwood water heater also not a big deal.
A "cat house" in the basement! Does Shara know about you perverseness.

Another great addition to our mutant family, hopeing to get together again before they depart. So many mutants to talk about and so little time!
Ah! My ears were burning and I figured someone was giving all the others a break. They can thank me with Ohhhmmm donations.

Mel, do they squeal all the time or just when you start out in the morning? If it is just in the morning it is dew/humidity and after a few stops it should go away. If it is all the time there can be a few causes and not to eliminate the pads themselves are just those types of pads. I have had that on a few cars when pads were replaced and they had to get better pads.

Now, with that said, do you drive with the exhaust brake on? That is a good thing in my opinion but at slow speeds it can cause the brake shoes to "shellac." I'll call.

Hey Don... Annie has some pics in her phone I'll post later.

It was a short afternoon trip at the spur of the moment. Didn't tour - just did a few drive bys. We could probably do a month at the Mark Twain Cave Campground. Not sure if they have cable or not so if you want satellite - be sure to ask for a place with a break in the tree cover. Pretty place.
