A Two-Fer . . .

Today at work was another of those ‘firefighting’ days. The ones where you spend the day stomping out fires.

And sometimes it works, and sometimes you catch your feet on fire. Today was a  little of both.

Coming home I stopped by the Post Office to hand in our Change of Address form or forms, I guess, for our new South Dakota address with Dakota Post.

I said ‘forms’ because I had to turn in two separate ones for our one address. That’s because when we got our Driver’s Licenses renewed 5 years ago, they made a mistake on our address and put our Box # in the system as PMB 110.

That was actually the street number from 110 E Center St.. Our real box number was #798, so we had to submit two different change notices, one for #110 and one for #798. Hopefully they don’t get confused again.

Last December 21st Jan and I went to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, one of our all-favorite shows, and really enjoyed it. So this year we had to make it a Two-fer, so I now have tickets to see their doppelganger competitor, Mannheim Steamroller on December 30th at the Smart Financial Centre in Sugarland.

Hopefully I won’t have another attack of BPPV or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo like I did last year. You can read about it here.

Self Diagnosing

So far I’ve never had it again since then. Fingers crossed.

Our RV Advenutes LOGO 4

I printed out the 98 page Service Manual for our Onan QD 7500 Generator and I’ve been poring over it trying to figure out what’s wrong with it.

To recap, we had it serviced last May when RV Mobile Lube serviced it with the rest of the rig, and when we left on our Illinois/Alabama trip in June, it worked perfectly . . . for the first day. Then it died ten minutes into the second day, just like I had shut it off. And it’s never started again since. It cranks just fine but just never catches. I’ve checked the fuel system and it’s working fine, so it’s something else.

Something that not only keeps it from starting,  but also stopped it when it was running. So this eliminates a few things like glow plugs and some others.

The last time I worked on it was when we were in Athens, AL before we headed back to Houston, and I was looking at the Governor Actuation system that controls the fuel injection, so that’s where I’ll start this time.

If it ever stops raining long enough, that is. So right now it’s just book work and talking to Onan Tech Support.

We’ll see how it goes tomorrow, but I’m not optimistic.

The Headline of the Day:

Thought for the Day:

To be sure of hitting your target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
