I just disconnected the lines of the purge system and they did not have water in them. Mine already has a brass ball valve. Thus far the theory is not holding water, so to say..

Ahh yea did not think about that one.. would be interesting to see if it was possible to force water into the system. Looks like he has a ball valve installed. So may be something else.

He pulled the plug. After his last job in Mississippi, he made his normal post work day speech. He said he stocked up with food for a 'few, 3 months' and bought beer. He has a mountain top lot (I think in tennessee or North Carolina) and said he was heading up there and waiting it out. He is afraid the highways will close and he might not be able to get home. He did say he be glad to have folks at the property if they want their buses fixd. All he has right now is a dirt lot. I have been watching and the road to his lot is super steep. He can hardly make it up and he had it graded. He needs it taken way down.

He was going to come down the Gulf Coast. I had talked to him about helping for a day on axle work here in Fort Myers where he has a customer. I didn't do a lot of brakes and axles on my old man's trucks when i was young. I watch his channel and they look fairly easy, just heavy.

My kid is buying a lot on a lake near Asheville. I might join her if this takes off and gets bad,

I'm not getting into politics here, but I think he's way over-reacting on the road closures. If anything, his line of work should be very immune to this thing since he's hardly in contact with any people and they live "remote" in their bus while they're on the road. He also stated that they don't pay attention to the news, so they probably don't really have a grasp for what's going on and just freaked out.

Ya know he reads the WOG. I talk to him every so often. He was at Fort Myers Beach 2 years ago and I worked a day for him. I was supposed to again because before this, he was supposed to be back at FMB in about a month. I talked to him today and he just isn't sure about coming down here. Coronavirus is up and down the Gulf Coast, dozens of cases. I told him I don't blame him one bit. He wants us to know he will be in Tennessee and we are welcome to work out a service at his place if we want to go to him. He is planning on getting off the road in the next few years (or less) anyway. That is why he bought the place. It's in a business friendly county he says and he already incorporated in Tennessee now. He is working on putting up a big steel building at first and live in his bus like he has for the last 5 years. I think if I did what he has been doing for 5 years I probably be ready to park it for a while too. Especially now. I am sure he will get enough people willing to drive up his mountain to make it. Once this settles down he will get back on the road for sure.

I question the wisdom of buying a mountain for a bus maintenance hub, but it's his money and I wish him well. A travelling mechanic has got to be a hard job. I don't know how it wife deals with it, either.

The hydraulic shop guy I was getting hoses from last week watches the BGM and he doesn't even have an RV of any kind. Kinda funny, he knew what a Wanderlodge was from that!
