We enjoyed our stay near Denver at Cherry Creek State Park. Seems like a great location. If you are in the area, we recommend it. The sites are very spacious and the campsites have full hookups on a concrete pad. And they are well maintained. Very nice.
The drive was pretty uneventful for about an hour.
We pulled off and into a Safeway parking lot and made some calls.
Meanwhile, we called Transwest Trucks in Commerce City on the west side of Denver. I talked with Rob Draper, the manager of the RV and Bus section of the shop. He was great. He said an amber light 'Check Engine Light" meant we could still drive it. He said I needed to make sure I kept the RPMs up to 2000 or 2200 and I should be OK. He said he could get us in that day.
Then we talked again with the CoachNet technician. He said he had us all fixed up and we could be seen sometime Thursday afternoon at a Freightliner shop in Denver. Really? How is a day and 1/2 wait acceptable? I mentioned to him we had already called another place (Transwest Trucks) and we were headed there.
So we turned the Roadrunner around and backtracked to Denver, back up over the Continental Divide. I kept the RPMs up over 2000 and the coach did fine. I had one short lived hesitation but we made it to the shop 70 miles back to Commerce City.
Rob had Hasan check things out. I removed the bike rack and he plugged in his laptop to the engine.
Glad you stopped by on the Roadrunner Chronicles. Please join us tomorrow for another edition from the Arches National Park.
