They are identical to a set of Crow Foot Tubing Wrenches I used to have. Mine would not have gone around hydraulic hose. I use standard crow foot wrenches on that. Good ones though, not China Cheap ones. The CC ones will spread enough under load to slip around the fitting.


Looks like you are under way again. I hope you get home without more problems.



Cracker Barrel used to be a really good place to eat. Not so much anymore. Breakfast is usually still pretty good though.

And Cracker Barrel is still a terrible restaurant. Gravy is fake junk, service is terrible. Why do people like this place?

Cracker Barrel is a great place to sleep,the food is so-so.

Agreed. Dinner has gone down hill. I still like the breakfasts. The RV sites are usually in the back and fairly peaceful.

You must sleep harder than I do, as the garbage truck come at 3am, and the food delivery truck arrives at 4.

I made it almost home and had to stop and pretend I'm still on vacation a bit. Watching trains go by in Rochelle, IL and doing some email. No bus issues today at all. The hydraulic pump sounds more whiny than I am used to when it's hot, maybe because I got all the other fluid out and replaced with 10-30? The reservoir says 10-40 only, dire warning there.

I am glad you made it home. You went through a lot. I don’t know how you did it.
How did your furry friends handle it?
