GNR is Over

We're on our way to Oshkosh, WI for the EAA air show. For the past 10 days or so, we were in Forest City attending the Winnebago GNR (Grand National Rally) for Winnebago coach owners. We have had fun meeting so many old friends and we even learned a thing or two. Plus we had some repairs done on our coach. (These things are really a money sink.)

As so often said previously, we really don't have much of an excuse for not keeping the blog updated. I guess visiting with friends can be tiring. Plus there was the evening entertainment.

The good news for the weeks was that a "repair kit" that I ordered to fix our air conditioner compressor worked. I didn't think it did the job, but when we asked Winnebago customer service to check it out, they said it was okay. They did object to my 60 foot #10 cord that we use for as power cord. I guess it may be a bit light for two compressors. So we'll kill one compressor in the future when on 115 VAC, 30 Amp only.

Tonight here in the Walmart lot, I'm beginning to suffer the pains of "being cheap". It is hot with no air conditioning. I hope Oshkosh is a bit cooler, further north and next to a lake.

We'll keep this one short.
