Our rescue fur baby, Cuddles, was also impressed/overwhelmed with all of her new friends. I was surprised/impressed with the number of FR3'rs that were at the Rally. Lots of valuable information shared between us.

Lastly, a great big Shout Out to Bob and Cindy for organizing such an awesome event. One can only imagine the amount of time and effort it took you to pull this off (even pulling a few strings to get a beautiful Rainbow to show itself just before the concert on Friday! The same goes for all of those that volunteered. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!!

Already making plans for next year that will include stepping up as volunteers. Next stop Bamaganza 2018 in October.

See ya next year.

We enjoyed spending time with You and Donna too.

Well.. Changing another tire.. Another lions heads rim failed. Failed in the same way, weld was burned through the material and a pin hole leak. Different side and not one of the new rims they sent out.. Guess I should have saved my rim issue for Goshen! Haha!

That's something totally different. I have been chasing the oil leaks for a while now. There is like 4-5 things that commonly cause oil leaks on the 7.3 and I have tackled 3 of them. Gonna try for #4 before Amana.

Hey! With 17 years and 220K miles, things loosen up.

Still in fair grounds. Ron Green of recreation Specialists came out to check axle. Need new axle and broken spring mount. Waiting to hear when they can get axle.

Good thing you found before you hit the road. Might have been better if caught during rally. Later RJD

Good news is there is nothing behind there. Just a propane tank, right? So if it gets wet it is no big deal.

ON the way to Rally

LOW BUBBA, my bride has stopped every Brinks truck between Goshen and
Jacksonville, FL to see if they have a check for her, even chased a couple down
some farming roads hollering out the window at the driver asking if they had any Publisher Clearing checks. she even shook a couple fellows hollering
"WHERE IS MY CHECK" ? They almost called for back up with all the screaming.

Oh well!

Oil cooler gasket? Good Luck. I had a 7.3 in an '02 F250 and ran it for 14 years. Great truck that everybody wanted when I traded.

No propane tanks there. It looks like I may have to go back to Topeka IN soon and let Amish RV fix it. I canít imagine how much the shipping costs would be, thatís one huge piece of fiberglass

Nah... Its definitely on the engine. Its leaking into the engine valley. My next step is replacing the Injection Pressure Regulator O-ring

Body shop should be able to handle if maybe you find one that fixes Vetts. Also we have a place here that does complete repair of camper and even built a hole new slide for a 5th wheel and painted and never even knew it was in an accident. Place called Apalachee RV Center. They do a lot of repairs for all the dealers here in Atlanta. Later RJD

Contact the Cedar Creek Factory. I would bring it back to them and let them repair it. There may be damage unseen. Also, any water intrusion can start the delamination process, so sooner rather than later.

Is that Recreation Specialists in Wakarusa? If so, we had a very, very bad experience with them. Very bad service, they broke more than they fixed, then refused to fix what they broke.
