We returned the rental car and picked up the truck from the Ford dealer. Good thing the repair was under extended warranty. Looks like they put Humpty Dumpty back together properly. Everything seems to work fine.
We picked up I-5 north through Portland where we got onto I-84 East toward Boise. Boise is a two day-er, meaning we divided the trip into two days. The first night we stayed in a half priced Passport America RV park. A very nice park with full hookups for $18.75, well worth the money.
The next day we got back onto I-84. Next stop Boise. At mile marker 287.5 we pasted 45th Parallel, it is half way between the Equator and the North Pole. We also entered Mountain Daylight Time. Ann sat staring at her phone to watch the time change.
On Saturday we arrived at Boise Riverside RV park. We met up with our friends, Warren and Sandy, who we met at the Escaped two years ago. Warren came over and helped me fix one of my slide toppers. Thanks Warren.
I noticed that one of the six tires on the Coach was warring uneven. We have a Mor Ryde suspension, which is not what most trailers use. It is an independent wheel system. I called Mor Ryde and asked for a dealer that could do an alignment. They gave me a name of an alignment shop here in Boise. The only problem is he could not take me in until Wednesday. So Wednesday morning we will pull out and go to have the Coach aligned. Then on to the Balloon Festival. With all of the delays time is getting tight and we will have to move to get down there for October, 2.
It may seem like we are doing nothing but repairs. First, we do have almost 100K miles on the truck. Also, if you put a set of wheels on your house and pull it down the road at 60 MPH things will break. These are the facts of life when RVing. We just deal with the problems. Even when we were in our Sticks and Bricks house, things broke.
