Starting Out With a Bang!
After a grueling tax season, all we wanted was to hit the road. I started the engine, and waited for the air gauge to reach 100 psi before driving the big coach up the steep driveway and onto the street above our house-office. Just as I was about to reach the top, "Bang!" It sounded much like an explosion, but hearing air escape, I knew we either blew an airbag, or some other such component. Continuing onto the street, and with air and now sirens going off at an ear piercing screech, we finally reached (by phone) the service center for Monaco who told us what to look for. In about 30 minutes, and after removing the dash cover, Bob found the air hose where it blew off the dash instrument panel for the air gauge. Now if we only knew the part number. Two days of phone calls around the country provided no help. Finally, brilliant husband figured out how to unscrew the part that fit behind the gauge, and voila', found a part which fit approximately 3 miles from our house-office. Progress! So, on Saturday afternoon after replacing the part, we once again, started our 2015 adventure.
