In the meantime, I am SO proud to announce that during yesterday's rain, not a single streak appeared on the sides of the motorhome. Even those sections that are the absolute worst stayed perfectly black. I can't believe how well that Mop N Glo worked. Of course I still have to clean up around the edges, but IT'S WORKING!!! YAHOO!!! Thank you Rita for your suggestion!
Yesterday I went back to the Cummins Repair Shop to finish up the recall on the SCR valve. It seems the valve installed on hundreds of coaches didn't quite meet the regulations, so they made the manufacturer replace it FOR FREE.
This saga started out in California (where else?) when I got the recall in the mail. With no dealer close, I opted to check out one in Tucson. I have to say RWC has the nicest people working for them. If you need anything in Tucson Cummins related, give them a call.
I took my rig in back in September, but they were behind on replacement parts. It was ordered and held for me until yesterday. I arrived at 7:00 am. Do you know how dark it is at 7:00 am? Like pitch black! It was scary driving this small neighborhood when I couldn't see down the side of the rig to determine if I would make the turn!!
Finally at RWC, I relaxed in the lounge. I was instantly starving. I forgot breakfast.
Nice lounge, right? All fabulously comfortable recliners, just for me since no one else appeared the entire time.
My first cup of hot chocolate to keep me awake.
Breakfast. I finally broke down and paid 75 cents for three bites of chips.
Second cup of hot chocolate. It was pretty tasty! They have an espresso machine if coffee is your thing.
Exciting, right? Well it was when they came in and told me one of the clamps on an exhaust pipe had come loose. Hmmmm does that explain why my CO2 alarm went off on the way down here?? Possibly. At any rate, $150 later they had the clamp replaced and taped up.
Of course I was suspicious of OVERSELLING. You know how that goes, especially with women drivers. In this case however I think they were honest.
Exciting day, yes??? I was bored to tears and must have played 139 games on my phone. Five hours later, I was back home, making the puppies VERY happy!!
Lucky me, dinner was tacos at the Chance house. I would definitely hire Miss Patty if she wasn't already a full time cook for Mr. Chance. And so another day lounging around in beautiful downtown Arizona!!
