Here for the night at Gila River Lone Butte Casino just south of Phoenix.
I’m back in the game today after fretting over the water pump malfunction last night. The local Roadtrek dealer determined this morning that it was ….. pilot error. Needless to say, I’m not one bit surprised!A massive Thank You to Brad and Stephanie at Freedom RV in Tucson!
Stephanie answered my call this AM and theorized that I might have a leak. Which made sense. She also warned me they were extremely busy and, she couldn’t promise anything, but maybe someone could take a quick look. But service manager Brad diagnosed the problem quickly and proceeded to check the GDB and make sure there are no leaks.
All that, and they didn’t charge me! I tried to force some lunch money on Stephanie but she wouldn't hear of it. What nice folks! If you get into trouble in Tucson, give them a call.Now, in my defense ….. the lever on the city water mechanism looks nothing like the one in the Roadtrek manual. Not. Even. Close. Robert tried to advise me about this but, trust me, it’s complicated with all those valves and levers.
Needless to say, I was relieved and shortly set off for Phoenix. It was too late in the day at that point to make a push for Q-site. Now tomorrow I’ll have an easy 2-hour drive.
|My only stop after leaving Tucson - a rest stop along I-10.|
|I met "Puppy" who wasn't in the mood for any small talk.|
I also refilled the winter-mode tank and dumped the other tanks. The low is expected to be around 28 tonight but I think I’m OK. I picked up some anti-freeze but am not sure I’ll need it tonight with the furnace running and the cabinet doors open.
The casino is nice. I thought I might play Bingo during this evening but the cost is $32 for the “basic package”. Too rich for my blood. Also too smoky! However, I’ll stop in tomorrow AM for the $3.99 breakfast special – eggs, potato, ham, and biscuit.I count 9 rigs here in the RV area just an hour before sunset. It’s quiet and security is patrolling. I’m looking forward to having running water tonight and curling up with my new faculty handbook! (The excitement never ends).
