Cummins Kamloops BC

Want to give a thumbs up to this location. We had a long trip across Canada and stopped in Kamloops for fuel. I decided to run the toad through the wash and paid for that as well. When I went to unhook , it was covered in oily water.
RV has a leak!
Called Cummins Kamloops and they told us to come right over. They found a coolant hose had been rubbing against metal and wore a hole through.
They fixed us up , filled our fresh water tank as requested, and even power washed the salt off the RV!
All in all, a nightmare was remedied in a few hours and we were on our way home with a smile.
Thanks to all that helped us weary travelers get home safe.

Was that in the nice new shop?

Handy place to get to, now they are out of the old place. Sort of nice they got you going without much drama.

I worked with a couple of the mechanics that are there. Great guys.

Happy Glamping.

Fond memories of that area (I’m up on hiway 24. ). My wife's (rip) cousin lives on Horse Lake and they told us that the easiest way from Kamloops was to take Hy 24 from Little Fort. There first question when we pulled in the driveway was, how did you like that hill? For others the first 6 miles +/- are a minimum 6% up hill. Downbound there are at least 3, maybe 4 runaway lanes (for brake failure).
We spent about a month, base in there driveway seeing the sights of the Caribou area. Beautiful country.

24 can be a hard pull on a hot day!

I cooked the speed sensor on my transmission on the old '94 Airstream with a P30 chassis. Luckily I was able to limp home in 3rd gear. Thanks to Man Mac Transmission in Kamloops, it only cost me around $200! Shame that they closed now!

We really enjoy the Bridge Lake area in the Summer. Always cooler than down in the valley around Kamloops.

Good memories of Loon Bay on Sheridan Lake.

Happy Glamping.
