Picked up three new valves and one for a spare. Hopefully the new calve works. I couldn't smell it much while driving but my buddy Jeff was sitting in the dinette seat and was gagging

Went back to Tombstone and toured the Good Enough Mine, old court house and the Boot Hill gavryard

Jerry, please make sure you talk about your air admittance valve failure with pictures on the other forum! I am sure the members would like to know what and how you corrected that problem!!

Will do if it fixes the problem. We pull out of Tombstone in 2 hours heading to Tucson for a few days

Day 12. We left Tombstone and headed to Tucson. On the way we stopped at Katchner caverns. First time in a cavern. Very awesome experience. Sorry no pics. No cameras were allowed. Then to Tucson. Had some strong winds but the 1 hour ride was non eventful

Airplane graveyard tour and Pina air museum tomorrow.

Forgot to say no smelly ride today. The new air admittance valves are doing their job

Day 13. It rained all night and we thought our day would be ruin at the Pima Airplane museum. Once we got there the rain stopped and all was good. After viewing hanger #1 we got on a bus to tour the airplane graveyard at the Air Force Base. Pretty neat seeing thousands of planes waiting to be torn apart for parts The tour was about 1-1/2 hours. We then toured the rest of the museum. Its definitely a 2 day trip to see everything here but we only had time for 1 day

Day 14. Well the trip is almost over and you guys won't have to see these posts anymore

Up early and broke camp. We were suppose to stay in Tucson until Sunday but decided to split the drive home into 2 days. Before leaving Tucson we have 1 more stop to tour the Titan Missile Silo. Our tour is the top to bottom tour. Only 6 people allowed and its only done 2 or 3 tines a month. I reserved our tour 1 year ago

They have a couple spots for rv parking. Got here early waiting for them to open up for us at 745. They open up for the other tours at 930

Pics to follow after the tour and the 4-5 hour drive to Blythe

Rain is expected for the drive so it might take me longer to drive.

Jerry

Day 14. Titan Missile Silo tour was pretty awesome. Our 4 hour tour took 6 hours. We covered 8 of the 9 floors. There's nothing on the 9th floor but we could see it. After the tour we ate a quick lunch and I drove 5 hours to Blythe. Tomorrow we do the last 4 hours or so

We drove through lots of rain, lightning, and a little traffic. I'm beat from the tour and driving. The tour is standing and walking.

So that's it for tonight

And yes Maria is at the control panel getting ready to turn the key to launch the missile

Well the trip is over. We made it home, gassed the mh and cleaned it out. Its ready for our next trip. Kind of tired so Ill post more tomorrow.


One thing while cleaning the mh I shut the door and the step closed. After closing it started making a ratcheting sound??

Im thinking maybe a gear broke. I saw a video on how to move the gear to unused teeth in the gear box. Ill give that a try probably on Tuesday when Maria goes to work.

Anyone have this problem before.


Jerry
