Saturday at the Earliest, Monday at the Latest . .

Which for us means we’ll probably plan on picking up the rig on Tuesday. Don’t know where that leaves Sunday.

I heard from Gary, the Big Wheel service rep this afternoon and he said the new fan motor should be here tomorrow or Friday. They’ve already got the old one out and confirmed what I thought. Not only is the motor leaking, but the top hose coming into it had been rubbing against the top of the motor mounting bracket, and was actually starting to weep fluid a little.

So he’s already got a new hose made and ready to install when the motor goes in. In addition, he’s reworked the u-joints on the driveshaft due to excessive wear.

And he’s going to pressure wash the underneath and rear of the rig which are pretty much covered in hydraulic fluid.

What a deal!  Now I just have to wait and see how much all this is going to cost me.

Either way, we’ll pick up the rig on Tuesday, make the 95 mile trip to Poche’s RV Park in Breaux Bridge to spend the night, using that as a test drive so we don’t get too far away in case of a problem. Then Wednesday we come on in to the Lake Conroe TT.

But due to shortened time schedule, we’ll only be there until Sunday when we’ll move back over to Colorado River TT. Then we’ll be back on  our normal two week schedule.

This morning Jan and I drove down to Webster to do some computer work for an old client who apparently wants me back. But we’ll see.

While we were down there, Jan and I had lunch at our favorite King Food. Hot & Sour Soup, Hot  & Spicy Garlic Chicken with Jalapenos, XXXXXXXX spicy. YUM!

Tomorrow I’m going to make another trip back down there for some more work, but unfortunately won’t have time for King Food, especially with Jan staying at Brandi’s this time.
