Friday: (05/17) When we got ready to roll this morning I found I couldn’t check the oil due to the dipstick being too tight in the tube. We retunred to the garage in Panguitch to have it looked at. It turns out the tube was damaged by the manifold exhaust gases blowing on it. A […]

Monday: (05/13) We slept a little late this morning so that after we finished our showers it was time to move the RV into the shop so they could start working on it. Replacing the exhaust manifold took most of the day. It was removed and installed three times due to two mounting studs that took turns […]

So we warmed up breakfast in a frying pan rather than the microwave. More chorizo scrambled eggs served with avocado. Yum! We prepared to roll. The rain had stopped […]
