Problems Resolved…

The motorhome is parked at Moose Club #1808 in Hesperia, California. I expect to depart the area later this morning.

Mary continues to be occupied with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

Yesterday morning at 7:00 AM, I looked out the dinette window ans saw several coyotes looking for some breakfast. One was chasing a big jackrabbit…the coyote never had a chance. When someone wants your butt for breakfast…you really move on out!

One wandered to only about two hundred feet from the motorhome and I got these three shots…

I was surprised to see so many this close into civilization…


I was also surprised how big and healthy they appeared. Must be good hunting grounds…


In the last couple of blog entries I’ve discussed the stalling/hesitation problem I’ve been having with the Bronco. Two days ago I took it to a NAPA Car Care Center. After performing a fuel pressure systems check, they replaced the fuel pressure regulator…nope…problem still there. The next step was to remove the gas tank from the vehicle…


The real culprit was hiding inside…the low pressure fuel pump was not pumping at all…


Here the gas tank protective skid-plate is being put back into place…


I took it on a 25 mile test run and it ran just fine…no more stalling or hesitation. It appears my problem has been resolved!

As I travel all over these United States…it’s another problem I’ve had to deal with…how to find an honest mechanic who won’t try to take advantage of an out-of-towner. The first thing I do is to study my Bronco repair manual to try to understand the problem at hand. Then do as much research online as possible to further expand that knowledge.

Then if possible I try to find a NAPA Car Care Center. Over time I’ve found them to be proficient at their trade and honest. In addition they provide a two-year parts and labor guarantee on their work.

In my most recent situation I went to the High Desert Auto & RV Repair Center at 11420 “I” Avenue in Hesperia, California. The owner is Brett James…


He personally did the work on my Bronco along with his assistant, Chuck. Despite a bunch of other vehicles awaiting his attention…he had my problems resolved in a 24-hour period. Great service at a fair price. I highly recommend him to you if you find yourself in the Victorville, California area and in need of a good mechanic!

Here are photos from his facility…





While the repairs were being accomplished I spent an enjoyable two nights at the nearby Moose Club #1808…


Many thanks for your friendly companionship during my stay!


Yesterday was a sunny and 72 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 75 degrees.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

    Marco: Did you ever contact those two garages in Las Vegas that I gave you the address for? Eduardo.

      Eduardo… Yes I did. The garage I had the work done at charged me $100. One yours wanted $150…the other never returned my call. I forgot to share this info when we met. Marco
