Currently in Ashland OR (Low 43 Sunny High 86)

To quote Roseanne Roseannadanna, "It just goes to show ya, it's always something". With the water pressure and the hot water problems solved we got to thinking things are OK, then BAM, one of our slideout motors starts making a clicking sound when going in and going out. 

We just had the operation of the slideouts checked last winter in Goodyear when we had a bigfoot leveling system worked on and told that it was all good. Bob called the dealer we bought it from, M and M Camping Center in Trenton Michigan, because he feels he always gets the straight scoop from them. Slideout problems are common across all makes and models but especially on the dining room slide from Carriage. M and M thought the motor and gears were fine but that it was slipping. They have a modification that they do but they are about 2400 miles away. We called a mobile service tech who said he will check his schedule and call us back. He called back with bad news, a big job turned into a really big job so he can't help us. Bob will be calling other places today, hopefully an alignment and tightening will work until we can get the modification.

In the mean time here are some photos of the Emigrant Lake Recreation Area RV Park. Here is the view after we step out of the Cameo.

The lake through our Ford and Cameo.

More of the park.

We'll keep you posted on the repairs,

Till next time,

  1. As long as you are contacting M&M, could your order up some dogs from the A&W across Jefferson?

  2. I so know what you mean about one thing after the other. Our furnace quit working. Thank goodness it was just the thermostat. Now our toilet is leaking and Jim's not sure why. Sure hope you get that slide fixed. One thing about our Bungalow, there isn't a whole lot to go wrong and Jim can probably fix just about anything.

  3. Wish you were nearby, I could help you do that real biggie! Tightening the motor should work in the mean time. Crawl under there and go at it! :-)
