I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked in Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart here June 2nd.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted October 8, 2013…

 

 

The motorhome is still parked  at Eagles Club #2093 at Medford, Oregon. When I left here yesterday morning, I didn’t know I’d be back for another night.

 

Yesterday morning I drove the motorhome south eight miles to a garage where I had an 8:00 AM appointment…

The motorhome is a 2006 model year, but the chassis was built in August 2005. That means the cooling system and heater hoses were more than eight years old. The manual for the motorhome says to change after five years, but somehow I overlooked it.

 

The mechanic told me they were ready to be changed. I expected to be on the road by noon, however the garage had problems finding the right hoses and I didn’t leave the garage until after 3:00 PM.

 

The next stage of the trip is to arrive at Redding, California which is 148 miles crossing over the Siskiyou Mountains that reach over 4,000 feet elevation rather quickly. I always set aside fours hours to make this journey and I no longer care to drive after dark, so I chose to stay in Medford another night.

 

Another factor in staying is whenever you open a vehicle’s coolant system, you need to assure that there are no remaining air pockets as the engine may overheat especially when climbing a steep grade like I’ll do this morning. By driving the motorhome to the Eagles Club and then back to the garage this morning so they can recheck their work, should remove any remaining air pockets. I expect only a brief stop and should be climbing the mountain range by 10:00 AM.

 

 

 

 

 

They allowed me to stay in the motorhome yesterday while the work was being done with the provision I did not leave it and be in the work area. In the next photo you can see the hole on the floor where the mechanic gains access to the top of the engine. The remaining work is done by crawling under the engine on the ground. It was a nasty job that I could have done, but would rather pay others to do it…

In this garage they repair the big 18 wheeler tractors. If you have never seen under the hood what they look like, you can now as seen from my motorhome yesterday…

I spent the remainder of afternoon reading, taking a nap, doing some computer work and visiting with the local Eagles members. I’ll continue my southerly journey later this morning. Google Earth is telling me I’ve got 393 miles to go until I arrive at Mary’s home at Murphys, California.

 

Last night I watched another old movie from the 1930’s. This time it was 1931 – Cimmaron starring Irene Dunne.. Another classic!

 

Enjoying friendly Eagles Clubs is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California readying for a family reunion. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

My Verizon account recycles on July 5th and I’m closing in on my GB limit so photos will be few until then.

 

 

Yesterday I took the motorhome to a garage to have the sagging electric step repaired. Fleetwood installed sheet metal screws during construction which were bound to fail in time. In the below photo…Jim Clark, the owner and a friend of my son, gives me a thumbs up indicated a successful repair…

Albuquerque, New Mexico Day 5 (GA268)

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 be here for a while.

 

This entry was posted October 18, 2012…

 

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

 

 

I’m still in Albuquerque. Yesterday morning I departed the Wal-Mart parking lot where I had spent the previous night. After some more grocery shopping at Wal-Mart, I drove the motorhome the about three miles to Advantage Automotive, the Workhorse Chassis dealer, to have the ABS light reprogrammed. In addition I had lost the rear running lights to a blown fuse which also got repaired. James runs the cleanest garage I’ve ever seen. You could eat off of the floor…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James, the owner, was missing two people so I waited over three hours for my service. By time he was done, it was after 3:00 PM so I decided to delay my departure from Albuquerque until this morning.

 

 

 

 

 

I always like to show the view out of the dinette window where I park for a night. Here’s last night’s view on Paisano Street…

 

 

 

 

 

Paisano Street is a dead-end so I had a nice quiet night despite being somewhat close to Interstate Highway 40…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Later this morning I’ll depart for Santa Rosa Lake State Park about 100 miles east of Albuquerque.

 

 

Enjoying the freedom to decide when to get back on the road is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

So Clean You Could Eat Off The Floor… (GA94)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I’ll planning to depart her June 11th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted April 28, 2012…

 

 

 

In my many years on the road I’ve managed to get to a few garages along the way…but none as clean as this one.

 

 

My first stop when arriving in Albuquerque, New Mexico a few days ago was at Advantage Automotive. The motorhome had an ABS light that would not go out after starting the engine and this is the only Workhorse Chassis repair facility in the Albuquerque area.

 

 

Not only is the shop clean, but they are also very knowledgeable and nice people. A rare combination to find in an automotive garage.

 

 

Let me show you this place…

According to their business card…

Complete Auto, R.V. & Truck repair. Specializing in Air Conditioning, Electrical and fuel Injection Systems Diagnosis and Repair.

 

 

They are conveniently located at 511 Piasano, NE, near the intersection of I-40 and Juan Tabo. Their telephone number is (505) 298-4996.

 

 

Here’s their website link…

If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you’ll know I rarely recommend anything. I only do it when someone or something is exceptional.

 

 

If you should happen to need servicing on your vehicles while in the Albuquerque area…I highly recommend them to you!

A Little Garage Time…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
My RVing lifestyle is changing, Click the About button above for more info.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 15th. I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of the Summer in the State of Washington.

Yesterday I took the motor home to a local garage recommended by a local America Legion member as being honest and reliable. So, I went to Mark’s Auto Repair.
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
While there I had an oil change and lube done.
DSC08566
Over the last six months, I’ve reported a few times about a problem that I have been having…that is an intermittent low power on start-up for about five minutes before it settles down and runs correctly.When trying to solve an intermittent, the process involves addressing the most likely suspect part.. If replacing it does not fix the problem…you move on to the next suspect. The real problem with my problem is that no Check Engine light comes on to activate a computer code to lead you to a probable cause for the problem.
So far, I’ve changed the fuel pump in the gas tank, replaced the fuel filter and had the mass air flow sensor cleaned. Still have the problem. Mark’s auto repair recommended the next likely step was to clean the throttle body valve which has a tendency to carbon-up over time and causing the valve to stick. This is what a throttle body valve looks like (not mine)…
s-l225
I’m hoping this will resolve my problem. If it does not, Mark’s recommended the next step should be to replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires. I’ve got my fingers crossed that this throttle body cleaning will resolve my problem.

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Here’s Hoping…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here December 23rd.

About three weeks back I posted a blog entry about having a new fuel pump installed in the gas tank of my motorhome. During the installation, the mechanic noticed my left rear shock was leaking and the my rear brake pads were getting low and needing replacement. I like using factory original parts, although expensive. They were a little difficult to identify part numbers and find a vendor. I finally accomplished that and the new shocks and brake pads finally arrived three days ago.

While awaiting the parts I began scoping out local garages to install the parts. When in this part of the world I always try to find small-shop, local Mexican mechanics. Over the years I have found them great mechanics, hard-working and honest.

I finally found a two Mexican-man shop, Cesar’s Auto Repair in nearby Indio, California….

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

Located in a small strip-mall type building is a little usual for a garage…

DSC08186

 

 

The one-bay shop is entered at the back of the building. I backed about 3/4’s of the motorhome into the work area…

DSC08184

 

 

Looking behind the motorhome, the rest of the work area…

DSC08185

 

 

First task was to replace the shocks…not an easy job…

DSC08188

 

 

Here are the old shocks. The top one is the leaker…

DSC08190

 

 

Next came replacing the brake pads…

DSC08191

 

 

Occasionally requiring both men…

DSC08193

 

 

Here are the old brake pads. They were ready to be changed after 58,000 miles…

DSC08196

 

 

In recent blog entries, I’ve also identified an intermittent cold-start, lower-power for a few minutes problem. Replacing the fuel pump and filter did not remedy the problem. The next suspected cause was the electrical connector for the Mass Air Flow Sensor. The sensor is located in the housing directly behind the engine air filter. In addition to cleaning the electrical connector…I also elected to clean the sensor as well. Here the air filter cover with the sensor sits on the pavement drying after cleaning…

DSC08198

 

 

The thin wires in the Mass Air Flow sensor monitors incoming air to the engine and the engine computer directs fuel flow to the engine. I’m HOPING the cleaning of the Mass Air Flow Sensor and its connector will rectify my intermittent cold-start, low-power problem. Only time will tell whether it has cured the problem. If not, on to the next suspected probable cause…

DSC08202

 

 

As long as we were right there I had the mechanic cleaner my life-time K&N Air Filter…

DSC08194

 

 

It’s air-dryed before re-installation…

DSC08203

HERE’S HOPING…my low-power start problem is gone!

If you are in the area and need a good mechanic, I highly recommend them to you…
