I don't like it
No one likes it when they have a bad day. There are times I do not handle a bad day well.
Today started off as a good day. I had the foresight to order extra A/C Gaskets the last time I replaced them. So I had the gasket on hand.
As most folk know most RV A/C units are on the roof. To keep them from leaking they have a heavy duty gasket. You can imagine the gasket takes a beating balancing the heavy A/C units over thousands of miles, many of those rough roads. So the gasket was shot.
(I do not know why, but Old barns give me a good feeling)
I have changed about 8 of them over the years so the job was done in a couple hours, along with checking the front A/C unit and tightening it some. We finished cleaning the stained ceiling from last nights episode. So all is well. That is until.........
On the trip to and from Florida I had a 'Low Coolant' light show up, I checked both times, yep it was low so I added. The engine never did get over heated.
(I admire anyone for even thinking about this this building!)
So I finally had time today to look at the engine. Bad news. Water is coming from the area all the work was done last month. Water coming from the head. Most mechanics, (EVEN THE NOVICE) know, THIS AIN'T GOOD.
So Monday, I must pay Mr. Mechanic a visit to learn my options.
But no matter the outcome, I thought the posted pictures were good. And things could be much worse, there are wrecks, strokes and heart attacks, and I did not have either.
