Brush, CO High 84 Low 52
About the last thing we do when we’re getting ready to pull out is to pull in our slides. Jim was hitched up, had everything unplugged and put away. We had gone over our check sheet and the girls were ready to go. Jim pushed the switch to pull in the slides and NOTHING.
He goes out to see if he can figure out what’s wrong. Pushes on it a few times and comes back in to try again. Nothing. Can’t find the owner’s manual so I get on line to try and find out where the manual override is. Takes me forever to locate the information.
In the meantime Jim determines that the mechanism is low on hydraulic fluid. Only problem is we are already hitched up. What a pain.
But neighbors to the rescue. We had visited with them yesterday when they pulled in and I had found out that they are from Fort Morgan. They bring their five year old granddaughter (they have custody) to the park to play on week-ends and also bring the camper. I knew they would know where to get the fluid so I sent Jim over to talk to them. He took Jim to get the fluid so we didn’t have to unhitch.
Jim put in the fluid and guess what, Slides In – Yep!
It’s a good thing we don’t usually have a set time to get on the road. Headed north and west out of Brush to Cheyenne, WY. HEAD WIND!! You could just see that fuel gauge dropping. We only had 113 miles to go but Jim was sure happy when we pulled into the campground.
We’ll be here for three nights doing some sight seeing. We’re at ABCamping RV Park and this place is really popular as a stopover for a night on the way through. It was completely full last night and they had large motorhomes parked nose to tail taking up several small sites along the road. I’m glad we actually have a site.
