Kanab, UT H 95 L 61
This is significant because this is the speed at which our truck said we must travel today. Don’t you just love computers? 30 miles from Kanab, UT (our destination) the truck speed dropped to 30 mph and a message popped up that said “power reduced”.
So picture this, we are on a two lane road with lots of traffic, no shoulder and absolutely no where to pull over, no cell phone service (not even a part of a bar) and even On-Star can’t get through to us. Do you think my anxiety level went up a wee bit?
The rest of the gauges showed everything was fine. No overheating, pressure was good. We had absolutely no choice but to keep moving forward very slowly. Jim pulled over as far as he could, put his flashers on and signaled people to pass when he could. I am just grateful that the road was pretty flat and not in the mountains.
It took us an hour but we did make it to the Kanab RV Corral. As soon as we got the fifth wheel leveled and set up, Jim unhitched and headed up to Ramsey’s. Recommended by the RV park owners. Jim was very impressed with their customer service. They took the truck in after just a short wait and discovered that we have a clogged fuel filter. Changed the filter and we are good to go. So happy it was not something more serious.
I took a bunch of windshield pictures today. Highway 89 from Flagstaff to Kanab is such a treat for the eyes. We crossed over Glen Canyon Dam at Lake Powell near Page, AZ.
Only had one small stretch of road construction with a flagger.
We will be staying in Kanab for three days to give Jim a chance to recover and relax. Will definitely be visiting Zion and hopefully the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. My nerves are starting to climb down off the walls.
