Checkup 

5 Comments


I got to FourStar Freightliner in Montgomery at 8am.  Right on time. After filling out paperwork, I went to the customer lounge.   An hour passed before my rolling home rolled into the shop area. The time passed quickly because the conversation was  excellent.   I spent several hours talking with a truck driver from Atlanta.  Tim is an interesting human and very knowledgeable.  Our conversation centered around comparative religion.  I learned at lot.   Very enjoyable.   That is one of my favorite subjects. 

The diagnosis is good news. The brakes, shocks, and air dryer look good.  He said the brakes and shocks look new.  I also asked them to do a general over all check of my  rolling home.  They found an oil leak on the oil pan and tightened the bolts.  I’ll watch and see if that worked.  All I’m getting done today is engine service, generator  service, and a gas filter.  


Six+/- hours later, the total was $420 and change for the services and gas filter.   Not bad at all.   I highly recommend Four Star Freightliner in Montgomery Alabama. I’m already planning to return to have the transmission and AC serviced.  

No tent is required. I’m parked in my rolling home at Gunter Hill Campground.  YAY!

A Short Hop

8 Comments

I visited FourStar Freightliner in Montgomery AL to set up an appointment for service work. The fast and friendly service man said bring the RV in at 8 in the morning (6.1.17).  I’ll be there.  At 13 minutes away, it’s probably not going to get any more convenient.  

They’ll take a look at the air dryer, brakes, shocks, and air filters to determine what if anything needs repair.  We know they will find something.  That’s their business. Then they will check parts availability, order parts, and set up a time for me to to return for the repairs. 

He said it would probably have to stay overnight one night and that it should be done before my travel date (6.12.17). I’ll find a local motel or get a tent. I lean towards the tent plan.  A tent is a good thing to own.  After all, I might want to go camping some time.  😂

Stay tuned for the next episode!

Adventures in Nomading 

2 Comments

Two travel days in a row is tiring. But there is no rest for the weary traveler.   Another new nomadic lifestyle experience/adventure is in the making. 

Tomorrow an RV Hero is coming to service the AC units. This will be the first time they have been serviced since I’ve had the RV. The next day I’m going to visit the local Freightliner dealership. Maybe I can get an appointment. I want the brakes, the air dryer. and shocks checked.   

It is hard to set up house when the house may roll in to the shop for an unknown period of time. And there is the food in the fridge. And few as they are, all my things are in my rolling home. It is an exciting week.
