Hi guys and gals (Lynne)
HH, I am glad you are feeling better, Keep on the mend, and do not hurry the recovery! Keep taking the Amoxicillen till it is gone.
Terry, I hope your knee get's back to where you want it to be, and you can do what you want when you want!
Popeye, I think us RVers are all a little bit crazy, to spend as much money as we do for something that we contuinually have to fix! But I think we all enjoy doing that, and keeps us grounded!
Ty, my dealer, at Sunland sales, said it best,, He said that it does not matter how much you spend on a MH, it will always need something!
Here is a little experience from our trip!
When we came into S.D. on I-80, the MH just lost all power and died!
I coasted to the shoulder and put on the flashers! It turned over , but no fire! So I called Progressive, and they sent a wrecker, he towed us to a very good shop, and we slept in their parking lot for the night. The next morning, I went in as soon as they got there, and talked with the service manager, he told me it would be tomorrow before he could work me in!
So I went out, called around, and had no luck finding someone to look at it. So, I pulled the hump off, and looked to see if I could spot something?
The wire off the coil was off?
Put it back on, she fired right up!
So now I am feeling really stupid, thinking why did I not check that on the side of the road, before calling and waiting for the wrecker!
So I called the wrecker service back up and they said they could come right out and put the driveshaft back in for me! They showed up very fast, bought a new strap kit, and installed the drive shaft! Away we went! Got about 2 miles down the interstate, Bang, the same thing, no power!
Pulled over, checked the coil wire, off again!!!
So, I wire tie'd that sucker on this time, and looked around to make sure that I did not miss anything else? There, laying on top of the transmission, was one of the little vac. plugs, all ate up from age!
So looking around, found where it came from, sure enough, open port!
So I took off the line next to it, cut it off, cut me a little bit off extra line, plugged it, and put the two back on! Fired her up, wow, running great! Glad I had the towing on my insurance! Cost for the tow= 0$ Cost for the strap kit, 8$, Just felt very stupid about the whole thing! Do not know why the coil wire would not stay on?
Must not have been the right one?
I do think the MH was trying to tell me the vac. line was off? Maybe??? I do know it will not come off again, till the wire tie's are cut!! She purred the rest of the trip!
I had a great trip, and was very lucky!
Now I can start the hunt for the next MH, and plan the next trip! My Dealer ask when it would be, and he would look and see if he could find another really cared for MH, that was priced right, like the one I just had! We will see! I got lucky this time, maybe I can do it again!
