Opening up the compartment where the pump and
valves are located, I couldn’t see anything out of place. Not sure what we were
going to do, Pat suggested that I put a call into our RV dealer, CanAM, back
home. After connecting with Peggy, our service rep and explaining the problem,
she connected me with Andy, one of the owners. He told me of two possibilities that
could cause the problem and the solution to fix it.
|You can see the wire that came off. The tape was wrapped around both, that's why I couldn't see it at first.
On a side note, CanAm has been awarded 2021 Canadian RV Dealer of The Year by Life Style Magazine, we are proud to be associated with this dealership. Here
After the call, I started to investigate the switch and then the valve that operates the front jacks. Eliminating the switch, I turned my attention to the valve. Removing some electrical tape that covered the two electrical wires that supply power to the valve, I discovered one was off. Could it be that simple, sure enough, when I put the wire back on, the jacks worked as should, thanks Andy.
When we reached Tres Rios RV Resort in Glen
Rose Texas, I needed to clean the burner of our BBQ, one of the jobs that should
have been done before we left home. Using a tool bit from my Dremel tool, I was
able to open up the clog with grease holes in the burner. Now with even blue flame
all around the burner it cooks so much better.

Before we left home, I had purchased a weather station, which needed to be put together. Here was a great place to do that and set it up. My old one gave inside and out temperature, wind speed and humidity, the new one will do all of that plus wind direction, rainfall and barometric pressure. So far, I have had it sitting on the picnic table but will do a more permanent mounting when we reach our destination.

In a couple of more days, we will be at our
first stop in Arizona for a week, then eventually onto Pilot Knob RV Resort in Winterhaven
California. As of January 7th, 2022, we will be in Quartzsite, LTVA
La Posa South, until the end of the month. Here we hope to meet up with our RV
friends who we haven’t seen in a couple of years, and anyone else who wants to
join in. We will be back passed the dump and water stations, where we were last
time. Looking forward to meeting up here with Nancy K, Tom & Deb, Doug, Ken & Shirley and
anyone that wants to join our circle. Of course, if we meet before, that would
be great also. After that we will be moving into a camp ground in Quartzsite
for the month of February.
Wrapping up for now, thanks for stopping by.
Until the next time, take care and stay safe.
