But that is not to be unexpected. A premise I embraced early on in this adventure was "there are 3,000 moving parts on this coach and it is ALL going to break at some point."
So I am not surprised or frustrated by maintenance challenges when they pop up. We are very pleased with our Tiffin Motor Home and still feel like it is one of the best values out there.
But about a month ago we noticed the water pump went out. Pam turned on the switch and nothing happened. Then we checked it out and sure enough it was dead.
We wanted to replace it ourselves. I looked at the make and model number and called around to a few RV parts stores here in Albuquerque. Then I shopped online and decided to order a replacement from American RV Company.
First I turned off the water.
Next, Pam looked over the three connecting wires and carefully disconnected them.
I forgot to turn on the water and make sure it was flowing through the pump correctly. Pam confirmed the 3.0 gallons per minute (gmp) water flow inside. It was still quieter than the old one, but only a little. But it worked perfectly. Success!
So we feel good about fixing up the water pump and replacing a few light switches. Nothing like a little maintenance to put us in a good frame of mind.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles. We love hearing from you and appreciate those comments. Keep 'em coming...
Until next time,
