I agree with John, sucks, Paul, I can feel your frustration. I heard a while back that BB fabricated those CAC's.. including mine, not sure if its true or not. I don't know what the big deal is about repairing the tanks, just re-weld them, or I'm I missing something? Most everything I've heard is leaks at the welds.

This is the one I saw by your bus on the floor, I assume thats it?

Sure looks like mine. Usually what cracks (like mine) is not really the tanks but the welds that attach the tubes to the tanks, and yes, many times they can be re-welded and that works. They may try that for expediency.

Slim and I looked at the front suspension and talked about the change needed to get the Wander out of my coach.
Also got a real good look at the hydraulic tank and motor for the HWH which has malfunctioned. Man thats going to be a real pain in the you know what.
No water in the fuel tank.
Looked at my oil leak for the hundredth time. I won't mess with that until the Air Compressor goes out. Source of leak.

I got to play under the coach for 1.7 hours with Slim Sommerville, ( PRICELESS !! )
The fun factor was red lined all day!

Kurt,

If I run into something I can't handle myself, I go there and they have always done a good job along with allowing you to be involved in the process.

You won't find this service at Camping World. 50 amp power while on the lift AC's running and I took this just before my better half tossed a sandwich out to me.
