Bronco Repaint Progress Day 9 & Still Searching…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here


The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #19 in Yuma, Arizona. I expect to depart here March 1st.




Several days ago I reported that I had made arrangements to have my towed Ford Bronco II repainted. It went into the shop Monday February 12th. Yesterday morning I went by to check on the progress of the work.


The photos below show the condition as yesterday morning. The red paint  and clear coat are on. The tan strip remained to be painted yesterday afternoon. Then all the parts need to be reattached to the vehicle. They told me that I can expect to pick it up later today…


Here’s the progress so far…

In the mean time, I continue searching for a solution to the intermittent low power problem that I have been pursuing since October 2016. Four days ago I took the motorhome to go grocery shopping and there it was again…the intermittent low power problem.


Since my good Mexican mechanic is here in Yuma, so I had him replace the next probable component in the search for a solution… the mass air flow sensor connector. I saw a number of YouTube videos with others having the same problem and they claimed changing this component fixed their problem.


Here you can see the component in place…





Here’s the old connector…





Here’s the new connector…





In place…




Those who replaced their connector indicated the problem was an internal electrical contact. Here’s hoping this resolves my problem!!!





I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 62 degrees. Cool for Yuma.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

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

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken at Rogue River, Oregon, October, 2017…

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!
