Dates: 01/31/12 – 02/03/13
Picked up RV at 5:30pm from SkyRiver…waiting for me as scheduled! I took it home and plugged it into the house power. The next morning, we drove to Moss Landing near Monterey.
Left the house at 10am-ish and drove to Half-Moon Bay and then down the coast. Stop at a scenic overlook for lunch…what a view of the coast and ocean! Got to Moss Beach KOA about two and pulled into our spot and hooked up electrical. Nice manager and well cared for park. We walked the dog around the marina and came back.
I noticed a screw was embedded in the front passenger tire! Tire pressure was ok, but I’m concerned about driving home and getting a blowout. I called my extended warranty, but they just said to call their roadside Assistence. I did, and they didn’t know what to do except tow the RV somewhere! Well, I was reading Motorhome and there was a good Sam advertisement that they will bring you a new tire, if needed…I’m calling tomorrow to see if this works! They said they could being a new tire, but then I thought to post my problem to iRV2.com. They guys said to use soapy water to see if it was leaking, and then unscrew it while checking for leakage. It never leaked and the screw turned out to be only 1/2 inch long. It was brat to get advice from the board that was good and saved me lots of money!
The trip home was nice and uneventful. We stopped in Capitola for coffee at Peet’s and I exercised the generator while we were there. Got home about 1pm and took the RV back about 2:30pm…but it was closed for the Superbowl! We’ll take it back tomorrow before work…
