Hey Wayne, just an FYI;
the sealant around the front cap marker light sockets are notorious for leaks on our WBGO coaches. You'll know where it's coming from if water starts dripping down on the dash.

Irene celebrated our 16th by finding the coach she wants to full time in. Nice used Dutch Star that truly appeals to her. So we will have to have a wrestling match to see who gets the final choice. If push came to shove, either would be great for me.

Im glad I read this on the Internet cause now I know it's true. We need to have a campfire centered around stories, fables and complete fabrications

Careful Moose with those wrestling matches. You don't want to throw your back out!b

Then last evening there was one heck of a rain storm with sheets of rain coming down sideways...and little waterfalls inside the motorhome. Dang! It was dry with little rainfall for 3 days - inside.


Jeff gave me a good lead on an RV repeair place called "Master Tech RV" in Elkhart, IN. I called them this morning with my roof leak and told them what I believed the problem to be. Thy said to bring it in and they would take care of it. Much better than all the other places along the way that are booked up for weeks. I knew it was most likely the front AC seal, and it was. When they were climbing up the technician could see a gap under the front of the forward AC. He said if he had a ruler it would have slide right under the gasket. When they pulled the unit out the seal that goes across the middle separating the heat from the cold was missing.

Anyhow, not knowing what had previously been done I ask that all three seals be replaced. They did. When the backed it out a heavy rain occurred giving me a chance to look inside for tel-tails. None were visible.

We are now at the Pla Mor RV Park in Bremen, IN and just up the road is Amish Acres. They have tours and might even be into some of the farm houses. It's going to be a good two weeks.



Thanks Jeff.
You are most welcome Wayne , I hope you told Tim the owner that I sent you their way , did ya see the 1976 Winnebago that they have restored ? ...

Here is the truth: "Shipshewana was named after a local Potawatomi Indian." so even if Barb's story is more entertaining, forget going to Shipshewana and come be with us. We can sit outside and throw "barbs" at each other and have a great time. We are at Pla Mor Campground in Bremen, IN. Shipshewana is only 42 miles from here

It's good to hear about good RV repair experiences for a change. Glad y'all are back on the Rainbow.
Shhhhhsh! Certain words are forbidden on this thread. Don't wake the demons.

My previous MH was a Winnebago...uh huh! They have a terrible reputation with windshields and marker lights. On the previous MH their pain job on the bay frames were terrible.

You know, you can save yourself a lot of strength, grief, and continue to get good meals because I know who is going to win in the long run. GIVE IT UP!

I did talk to James Brown about you and he said that they need you to come back as they need more money from you.

Did or know about the restored MH and did not meet the owner. Sat around in the garage tabel with others and enjoyed the conversation.

I would definitely return to this area and use them for any repairs.

Thanks again for the heads up.

Love this area. They have hitching post for the horses and buggies and then in the parking lots they have a parking spot for fat guys that like to grill.


That is so considerate.

Actually that's a dual purpose spot. For fat guys who grill out yes.......and for mothers with child and one in the stroller to gawk at.....a gathering point to stare at the youngun blowing bubbles.....as you can see.
