We picked up the old Bounder, Saturday and started the 600+ mile trip home, at about 4;00 pm. The only work, the garage had completed was the changing of the oil! But we had no choice but to start for home. We drove 7 blocks and pulled into a station to gas up. when we went to start the motor, nothing happened, when the switch was turned to start, (no sound, click, or response of any kind) the battery cable was found to be lose at the starter, so after tightening it up (with borrowed tools) and every thing worked fine!
We had a very comfortable and uneventful ride home. This was our family's first adventure, in a motor home, and we found it to be great fun and a very enjoyable way to travail! We even found time for a little side trip to Dickson Mounds Museum @ Lewistown Ill.
We pulled the front bumper off last night and sent it with my son to repair and pant, as it was a real eye sore. So let the learning and work begin.
