Down & Out in San Jose

 After a couple of days Josh at Bish's RV worked Serenity into their schedule. Thank you Josh. Towing Serenity from their parking lot where she was dropped by the two truck to a service bay unfortunately  solved the problem. She started right up. 

Mechanics report "Attempted to duplicate failure by performing a wiggle test on chassis wiring connections and removing specific fuses related to starting the unit. Unable to duplicate issue. On the PS of the engine found a wire harness that the loom had been melted from the exhaust. Reloomed the wiring and wire tied to a bracket on front fo the engine to keep away from exhaust"  

With GREAT trepidation I head out for San Jose, where my son lives, expecting the engine to quit at any moment. The good news is I made it to San Jose. I am now in an RV Park, UGH!, searching for another Trek or a Lazy Daze. Both are very hard to find.

Down Again


Camped above what is left of Shasta Lake, Ca

Heading north

Overnight at Seven Feathers Casio. Fire nearby

Bummer!

This is Serenity's third electrical failure in 1,500 miles. Driving along and then total electrical failure. Engine stops like a switch has been flipped. I am thinking a short. The previous  two times the shops got her running, but obviously they did not solve the underlying  problem.  Serenity has become a very fickle lady and can't be trusted. Her wandering days may be over. I am getting towed to Bish's RV in Junction City, OR.
