Trips Bring Problems To Solve!
Mackinaw City.....day of departure.
The "Roadhouse" fails to start....narry a click or groan!
AAA is there with a fellow who did not know: a) where the starter was; b) how to short across the starter to fire my engine; c) how to talk, walk or chew gum.
Guess I was mad. The resulting knowledge that the starter/solenoid had failed was the precurser to many phone calls ending when I located a local "shade tree" mechanic who both had time for us, and the starter sitting on his shelf. Back on the road by 1pm.....we lunched in the coach as he worked on the starter.
Off to Saginaw, MI for the night.
