Stix n Brix
I worked my last night shift for a while last night. As soon as I got home, I changed clothes and cranked up the MH. Gin and I were going somewhere...Gregory Poole for recall repairs to the brakes. Wanda has a Workhorse chassis and they acknowledged a problem with the calipers sticking in the brakes of their MHs about a year and a half ago. If your rig isn't driven every few days, this may lead to problems. They finally announced that they had a fix and had made the parts to supply to the repair shops only a month or so ago. It seems odd to have an empty driveway. The repairs should only take a day if there are no other problems, but since we didn't get a call saying she was ready, I'm sure they ran into other problems. This doesn't surprise me since we had some work done on the brakes this past winter. They have over-heated a couple of times since then this season. When we were in Myrtle Beach, I couldn't go over 45 mph because the steering wheel was shaking so bad. It was a bit scary. Our ABS light stays on now so I'm sure the sensor has gone bad or something. This should all be covered by Workhorse so we'll see how it goes. If the brakepads have excessive wear, I would have to pay for that but I wouldn't have to pay for the labor. We'll hear from the shop next week.
After getting a good nap, Gin and I spent the day in the garage. She was putting an e-bike kit on my bike so that I can keep up with her. I've ridden hers a few times and it's nice to get a boost up a hill. I'll still pedal most of the time, but I do have bad knees. While she was doing this, I was going through several boxes of paperwork that was in the attic. It felt nice to thin down some things, but it makes me realize how much more we need to get done this winter. The weather has been so nice around here that it's tempting to just play and relax but we have things to do.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
