Wow today was a little more excitement than you want. Looking down at the gauges and seeing one light up that says WARNING in red. That happened about 5 miles after we left the Potomac. (It also happened in Albuquerque once to the tune of about $300 (but I got a free ball cap) we sure hope this one is less)
I checked all the gauges, the rest were normal. The book says, problem with the fuel system. The diesel always scares me because I know so very little about them. A gasoline engine I could trouble shoot and most likely fix. But the diesel, not so likely.
I petted it for about 40 miles and spotted a Pilot/Flying-J truck stop, While in line I looked for something obvious under and around the engine, nada.
After fueling, the light was flashing on and off. So I drove at 45-55 mph and kept it off.
Now I am researching, and checking the area for possible repair places. Our Road service will find one for us if I cannot find a cheaper mechanic close. So there is a possibility our time here will be shorter than planned. Once we pull out, we cannot return to the same park of 7 days, one of the park rules.
It may be nothing; it may be SOMETHING! But that is part of living in a moveable home.
The whole thing is nothing that cannot be worked out, it is nice not to have a schedule set in concrete. We have only two things that MUST be met, Sherry’s class reunion and her appointment with the Dr. on her yearly visit.
On a much brighter note, son Mark, who took his earnings from a land sale and went to Florida. There he bought a fixer-upper to sale, he just called and said he had a contract on the house, full price. Hallelujah. He has been down and nearly out, for a long time now; we are praying he is climbing out of the hole.
Nice park(this is), makes you want the boat back!
Thanks for coming to hear me gripe!
On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League baseball game that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first- base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was ‘We’re behind 14 to nothing,' he answered with a smile. 'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you don't look very discouraged.' 'Discouraged?’ the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face. Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet.'
The Metropolitan was built under the name Nash and Hudson. I rebuilt two. This was the Hudson Metro. We love it.
