THE MAINTENANCE SAGA CONTINUES FOR THEM

APRILJENNW has gotten their new fuel pump completely installed with no improvement to their engine misfire issue. It is certainly not a waste as their beautifully restored Class C is 28 years old and that era Ford fuel pump has a bad reputation for poor performance, vapor locking, and failure. Preventative maintenance is always good! The next step is to get with a professional 40 year Ford mechanic this Tuesday and resolve the problem. At some point, you just have to admit that the problem is beyond your area of expertise! They have been a delight to HOST, with their cheerful demeanor and RV technical skills! We are not looking forward to their departure and they are encouraged to return. Becky & George

CLOSING IN ON SUCCESS, WE HOPE!!

APRILJENNW is just about finished with her submerged fuel pump replacement during which process the large RV fuel tank had to be emptied, lowered to the ground so that the new fuel pump could be installed, all rubber components and connectors replaced, then raised and reinstalled in positioned. Far more work than this old man could have undertaken even if I did know which end of the wrench to use!!! Look at the ladies in the picture and don't mess with them!! We are all rooting for them that this action solves their power problem! We had a similar problem with our 1993 Ford-powered Pace Arrow and a fuel pump replacement did, indeed, solve our issue. It seems that there was a fuel pump issue during that era of big Ford-powered coaches! Anyway, the end is in sight, hopefully! APRILJEEEW has been great and is welcome at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST anytime!

ANTICIPATION ALL AROUND!!

APRILJENNW has finally received the fuel pump needed for their coach and has installed the same with all of the issues attendant with such an installation after dropping the fuel tank; replacing the rubber hoses, hose clamps, o-rings, grommets, spacers & washers! She literally finished the job just as our first major winter storm of the season came bearing down upon us! 32 F last night at midnight! Now comes the REAL TEST! Will replacing the fuel pump, submerged in her fuel tank, solve her problem! My money, for her sake, is on YES! The kids begged to stay to see the snow of which we have a dusting this morning, but are forecast to receive 4" - 10" today. The kids will be thrilled. My money is on these folks as no job, nor problem is too daunting. Becky and I hope to see them back in the future. Becky & George

THE SAGA CONTINUES!!

APRILJENNW, The saga continues!! After their $400 Amazon package, supposedly containing their fuel pump, arrived containing a single spark plug, destined elsewhere, they shopped elsewhere. The fuel pump was to have been shipped Friday delivered Monday with a tracking number, while today is the following Wednesday, and still no tracking number, indicating non-shipment to date! The only bright spot in this saga is that they have had time to work on my RV's post hailstorm and scope out the area sights, such as a recent trip to the Saratoga, WY, hot springs! Our "squatters" as my wife lovingly calls them, are going to be missed when they finally affect the repairs to their coach. While they are welcome to return, with all the "bad juju" associated with Cheyenne, they may never darken our door again!! Becky & George

HERE WE GO AGAIN!!

APRILJENNW is one of the luckiest things to have happened to us! Since their forced mechanical delay at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST, we have been the beneficiary of their RV technical expertise as they have worked on our hail impacted RV's. I wish that I could say the same for their luck in sourcing parts to repair their issue. Today, an Amazon package arrived for them, supposedly containing their new $400 fuel pump. When opened, it in fact contained a single spark plug, hardly expected and nowhere near worth $400. After several hours of wrangling over the phone, credits were issued and new parts ordered, however their RV still sat immobile in its parking spot. We still are fortunate for their presence, thou my wife is now jokingly referring to them as our "squatters". Fortunately, they have a great sense of humor regarding their ongoing repair saga and hope to be back on the road soon. We will miss them! Becky & George

A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! HOPEFULLY NOT A TRAIN!

APRILJENNW, after 4 days of very painful salmonella poisoning illness, is approaching the end of the RV mechanical issues tunnel, they hope! After much differing diagnosis, they have had to drop their large RV fuel tank to replace a faltering, submerged fuel pump, which was diagnosed and hoped to be the issue. They will soon know! It has been an absolute pleasure to have them at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST, not only for their comportment as GUESTS but for their RV repair expertise in the aftermath of one of the most severe hail storms that we have experienced in our 20 years on-site. No BOONDOCKER'S HOST should have any reservations about HOSTING them. They are welcome here whenever! Becky & George

SLACK REQUESTED! SLACK DENIED!!

APRILJENNW has been fighting an RV mechanical issue for some time now and it is time that they caught a break!! However, in the meantime, it has been a delight and to our benefit to have their expertise around as we try to recover our RV's from a massive hailstorm that swept through here on July 21. They have been very helpful to us as we work insurance issues and we have been able to employ their services as mobile RV technicians as we recover from the storm. We are happy to provide them a "safe haven" as they try to resolve their own issues while we benefit from their presence. Most welcome at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST! Becky & George

FAMILY NOW!

APRILJENNW is now an honorary member of the family, whether they like it or not! While they have been waiting for the mechanical repairs to their Class C, they have been more than helpful to us and our BOONDOCKER GUESTS using their RV Technician skills to help us with our hail damage from 3 weeks ago and our GUESTS with a myriad of their RV issues! RV's don't have issues, do they? Anyway, it has been a joy to have them here and they are welcome until they can't stand us any longer! Becky & George

VERY LOW MAINTENANCE - ALMOST INVISIBLE!

APRILJENNW has been a help around here as they wait for their RV engine maintenance appointment. They were kind enough to put their RV Technician skills to use and straightened my main floor, hail damaged air conditioner fins so that they look better than new. WOW! They have never looked that good! They have been touring the local area and were talking about a day trip up to Mt. Rushmore (about a 4-hour drive). Don't know if they were able to make that one, but they certainly have been low maintenance around here! They are most welcome to return! Becky & George

TALKS THE TALK AND WALKS THE WALK!!

APRILJENNW is a very nice family, the Mother, and daughter of whom are certified RV technicians and inspectors. Unfortunately for them, they arrived here with some power train problems of their own and are going to have to extend their stay in order to effect some repairs with my personal, local auto service mechanic. The fact that we just had a severe hailstorm with 2" hail a week before their arrival, coupled with the fact that their own repair is delayed by a short period, they have generously offered to provide insurance repair estimates for my 2 RV's (Class A and a truck camper) and to perform some of the work at very reasonable rates as their time permits. They are very pleasant, helpful and a delight to HOST. They are most welcome to return to SPAGHETTI'S ROOST! Becky & George

Great People, Adaptable When Plans Change

As I eagerly prepared to welcome these travelers, fate intervened on the morning they were leaving to come my direction to stay in my guest parking area for the night. Unexpectedly they encountered a tire problem that took longer than expected, and there was no doubt they would be unable to arrive at my home at the expected time. However, they have a standing invitation to come back and boondock with me at any time! They were so thoughtful and were so considerate in a very timely manner. When they ran into an unexpected long delay with a tire problem, they let me know immediately that the problem with getting their tires fixed would greatly delay their departure, and would cause them to have to travel way too many hours into the night to reach my house for their scheduled stay with me. They were so thoughtful and kind to let me know about the necessary change in their plans, so that I would know they were detained, and would be unable to reach my home in a safe and timely manner, which allowed me to go on about my plans without worrying about their arrival.
I immediately let them know that they would be most welcome to come stay with me anytime in the future, because it was obvious they were thoughtful and caring guests!! They had been so thoughtful and so timely in letting me know about their unexpected tire repair problem that I experienced no inconvience by their necessary cancellation!! I truly hope they will come my way in the future, and I will have another opportunity to meet them!! It's obvious they will be thoughtful and caring guests, ........and I am hoping for another chance to be their host in some future adventure!!!

welcome back anytime.

These are interesting times, trying to maintain a "social distance" while traveling can be difficult. The trips one remembers are usually the ones where things go south. These folks have it together, traveling in a 25 yr old RV can be an adventure.
Ya'll come back when you can stay a while.

Glad we were able to host

We were happy to be able to provide a safe, peaceful place for this family of four.
They were very considerate. Hopefully they will return after the virus issue is resolved and they can have a proper visit around the campfire.
