Tuesday, January 31 – Paul took the motor home to the repair shop this morning to have the leaking front wheel bearing seal replaced.
If you read our blog regularly, you'll remember on our way to the Rio Grande Valley in December, we had to stop frequently to check the wheel bearing oil and add oil several times.
Upon inspection, the repair shop decided to go ahead and replace both front seals. We had this work done at Remy Truck & Auto Repair. They were recommended by several people here at the RV Park.
The work was well done with the only problem being the long wait for parts to be delivered to the shop. Why don't they give the customer the option to run to the warehouse and pick-up these parts? Paul is not a very patient person and sitting for hours waiting for parts to be delivered drives him crazy.
He arrived at the repair facility about 8:30 a.m. After checking part numbers and looking over the problem parts were ordered. That was about 9:30. Parts were finally delivered at 2:30 p.m....JEESH!!!

The work was completed at 5:00 p.m., and Paul wanted to drive the MH for awhile to check the repairs and to exercise the engine and generator after sitting here at Hidden Valley Ranch for a month. So it was almost 6:00 by the time he returned to the RV Park. We got all hooked-up and finished setting-up just before dark......CRIPES!
Marsha and Bella were homeless all day waiting for Paul to get home with the MH. Marsha visited with some friends that stopped over, and Bella wondered what happened to her home....LOL
All-in-all, things worked-out, and we hope that takes care of the leaking bearing seals.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
