Oven Saga Continues

Page, AZ   High 101  Low 81

The mobile repair guy showed up Tuesday morning a few minutes early for our appointment. He was a really nice guy and also pretty honest. He told us that he was doing this repair as a favor to Camping World because he quit working on stoves 10 years ago because they weren’t worth the time involved.

Okay – so what next? He lit the oven, it heated up to temperature, and when the burner went out so did the pilot light. Exactly what Jim told him and exactly what the first repair guy said. This guy wasn’t sure what was causing the problem so he called Suburban and talked to one of their techs. They said he needed to replace the pilot.

That was a good thing because the first guy thought that was what was wrong and had Camping World order a new pilot and a thermocouple back the end of May. This guy had the parts but when he opened the box, there was no pilot. Camping World ordered the wrong parts. Nothing that could be done so he packed up and left.

We also packed up, switched boats and headed north Wednesday morning. Even though it was really hot while we were in AJ, I didn’t want to leave our home. But leave we did.

Tonight we are in Page, AZ.  We about killed ourselves getting to Arizona in two days and we just cannot do that. We are taking four days to get back to Helena. Much more reasonable for us old people.

  3. Be careful going back the heat is back in force. My cousin called today from Sun City, CA. and it was 109 that's about what it was here today too.

  4. Slow but steady is now the gait for many of us. Don't you think by our age we should have learned how to take care of ourselves? Why do we have to keep learning old lessons?

  7. We've done the thing in two days too and I agree with you. Never again. It's especially hard because you have your two furr kids to watch over. Slow down and take it easy because you're going to be doing this soon enough again!
