Broken in Bakersfield


We got up early this morning to get an early start on the drive to Bullhead City. I got in the drivers seat and turned the key and the engine turned over but didn’t start. Every once in a while it would try to start but  immediately it would die.
After looking around at stuff that I didn’t recognize I decided that I had no Idea what to do.

Eventually we called Good Sam to see if we could get towed to someplace to get it fixed.
The rep at Good Sam called a mobile truck repair outfit. The guy came out in about an hour and started checking stuff out.  He messed with the RV all day and at the end we had no power to the ignition. Around 6:00 the guy gave up and said that we would have to see if the Ford dealer might be able to do some thing with it.

Tomorrow we will go to the Ford dealer and see if they will work on it.

If they will work on it we will have to have it towed to them and hopefully they will let us stay in the rig if it takes more than a day.

I don’t know what we will do if they can’t fix it.
There is another guy in town that is supposedly an auto electrical expert but he is booked for two weeks out and doesn’t have any room to park the RV.

I can’t imagine spending two weeks in Bakersfield waiting to get the rig fixed.
If we can even find an RV park that will let us have our rig towed in to wait for repairs. Most places are a little funny about stuff like that.

This has not been a good day.Sad smile
