We were ready for the 22 mile trip to Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia, the location of our RV Rally.
After we’d topped-off our 78 gallon fresh water tank, pumped our black & gray water tanks (during our -day RV Rally, we will not have water or sewer connections), secured our water & sewer hoses and electrical & cable connections, pulled-in our slides and retracted our stabilizing jacks … as I started the engine, Debbie got out to do her last minute walk-around.
Suddenly, she announced that we had water literally pouring from underneath our coach!
My closer inspection proved her 100% correct!
Unfortunately, while the waterfall continued, it was impossible to determine the source, which appeared to be coming from a hose and the user manuals
provided no useful information on the coach’s water systems.
However, once the flow stopped, together with some advice from several fellow RVers,
I was able to get underneath our rig
One minor “catastrophe” solved, we hitched up our Jeep to our motor home only to discover that the primary electrical connection to our auxiliary breaking system in our tow vehicle was not working. Fortunately, I had another option … but I still need to track the problem down sometime.
We finally left our campground some 90 minutes later than planned, where we spotted our second Roadrunner on the trip
to Santa Anita Race Track where an extremely efficient event staff had us into our assigned slots within minutes.
The organizers of Sierra Madre (a local community of just 12,000 residents) float organizing committee joined us, together with their three “princesses” (all high school students with grade point averages of at least 3.0) who will ride the float, to talk about their entry in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade.
