I really need to be more trusting!
My parts arrived yesterday, and the shop installed them today. The disadvantage of going to a diesel shop and not an RV shop is the fact that they aren’t as familiar with the product, so in the end we found part of the problem, but didn’t fix the ultimate failure. The old stepper motor WAS burnt out. Alas, an additional relay is malfunctioning. In the end — or should I say the intermediate end we locked the steps in the UP position and we’re good to go until we can find a shop to service the problem.
Of course, at some point, I want to get our backup camera fixed. We’ll be looking for a ‘real’ RV shop in the near future. Maybe the step and the backup camera together will amount to enough of a repair that we can use our extended service contract.
The rest of the day we greeted new campers, and did our host ‘thing.’ The forecasted rain mostly went elsewhere and our last weekend here might be one of the nicest of the season. We’re full of campers and people are having fun. What’s better than that?
The cornfields are beginning to look like they’ve all been given crewcuts! The fields are cut, except of course for a few near misses. It always amuses me when I see 80 or so acres and there are 4 or 6 stalks of corn that were missed. That must have been when the farmer looked away to grab his mug of coffee!
With Amish in the area the roads are visited not only by large diesel trucks but also by two horse drays. It seems other-worldly to see pop on the back of the load and some pre-teen young-un up front driving the team.
Well, as time runs out I should be running out of words too.
Thanks for stopping, and I’ll talk with you again tomorrow.
