West Truck Service got P & H in the shop first thing this morning. They are a great group of guys and they seem to want to help out anyone in trouble. Quite often this is not the case when it comes to RV's because they are so miserable to work on.
The scope showed nothing other than that the buzzer had been going off so they had to go underneath to see what they could find. First thing they found was a loose belt and as they looked a little farther they saw that the idler pulley had a bad bearing. So they took it off to fix it. While under there they checked what they could and the mechanic found that the water pump was seized!! It was not leaking as they usually do, but rather seized solid. Strange I thought. No doubt that the problem had been found. So a new one was ordered and they took the old one out and replaced with a new one.
While I was waiting I climbed up on the roof to give the solar panels a little scrub. We are getting good sun here but it can always be better with clean panels.
Charlie just laid outside in the sun for the afternoon. Gosh he likes the warm weather so much better than the cool damp. It doesn't seem to bother his arthritis as much.
Here is a little tour of the place for you. Like I say I hate to bore you but I will give you a taste. The cars inside were in pristine condition.
I asked if any of the cars were famous and he said the only one was a model T that used to belong to "Spanky of the Little Rascals". The boneyard out back was just that, a boneyard!! Lots of old trucks and some farm equipment. Interesting to look at just the same.
And for my friend Bill here there were a couple RC planes just getting dusty.
And then we were into the New Mexico mountains. It is very pretty to drive through.
What a gorgeous sunset. We are glad to be back in the southwest again.
