Vacation Day 72/90 - What Else Could Go Wrong?

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

So today was our move day to Salt Lake City.

TC went to move the truck...and it wouldn't start! Apparently he had left the keys in the vehicle and the radio on. Oh well! Called our Roadside Service and they arranged for a guy to come out...problem #1 solved!

Then we went to a "quarter" car wash to blow the worst of the dirt off the trailer. Pulling out, we hit a pothole, scraped bottom, and broke off a stabilizer. Ack. Problem #2.

Traffic through Salt Lake City was intense, even at 1 pm. While going around a curve, TC saw a huge piece of steel belted tire in the road, but because of the traffic, he couldn't swerve. We hit it head on, and it ended up denting the trailer in the front and on the side. Problem #3.

Of course, we still have our water leak (Problem #4) that we can't figure out. We went to an auto service place in Moab and the technician tightened a bunch of connections (hey, they shake loose after 7,000 miles on the road!), but it didn't solve the problem.

So tomorrow is the day. If the RV dealership can't solve the problem, we may just go home. Living in a trailer without water isn't fun. "Should we stay or should we go?"

Will let you know tomorrow!
