The brake line running along the side of the frame rail has developed a little pinhole leak.
It's at a section that looks a little rusty, but brake lines can also rust from the inside out if any moisture gets into the line. And with a possible 1,000 psi of pressure when you hit the brakes hard (as I did the day before!) it was just enough to blow a little hole through the line.
Garry (the owner here at Rancho Altarose RV Park) called a local mechanic that he knows and the guy is coming out this morning at 9:00am to see what he can do. If I had the right tools, I could fix it myself. But I don't, and mechanical work in Mexico is pretty cheap compared to the rest of North America. So we'll see what happens shortly.
We were supposed to go into Puerto Vallarta this morning to have lunch with friends, but I've come down with some sort of a stomach bug. Hopefully it's the 24 hour variety and all will be better tomorrow! So we'll just hang around here today. Lots to do to keep busy, and if we don't feel like keeping busy, we have lots of books to read.
Really enjoying just being back and doing our thing with the motorhome. :-) Not ready to get going yet. We'll play it by ear, and one day we'll just say "we're moving on down the road"!
Can you see Sherman hiding in the trees? Lots of shade, but we still get some sun on the solar panels.
Lots of big trees and greenery.
Other than the big tree on the left, this was just a corn field when they moved here 10 years ago.
Oh, and apparently we're world famous. A Canadian senior's magazine called "Forever Young" asked to write a story about us, and how we came to be where we're at. Our facebook fans have already seen it, but now that they've corrected a few errors it's even better. Even has the right photo of us now!
And, amazon.com is back with this fantastic deal on a quality pair of binoculars, We advertised this deal once before and a couple of you took advantage, but this time I think the price is even better!
