Maybe Next Time.....I'll make it

I am glad to see the pictures and to know that everyone had a great rally. Sorry for the transmission woes for you Martin. Hope the F-250 will be better than ever really soon.
The October weekend of 26-28 would work well for me. (26th is my Bday)....
Hope to see everyone in the fall.

Curious minds, infamous transmissions

Just got the call from dealership.
I guess we are in the middle of the saga. Four days at the Ford dealer and they "think" the problem is a sending unit inside the transmission. Seems this sending unit is telling the wacky computer that the transmission is in bad shape. The wacky computer takes this information and tells the temp. gauge to read HOT, real HOT. So, the suspect part is ordered and hopefully will be installed by 5pm tomorrow. IF so, that will be just in time for me to take the Airstream to Barnesville and set up for the weekend. IF all goes well, little piggie will be inside the cooker and getting warm at 6am Friday. Just 6 days late. (don't worry, he's been in the freezer)
Lot's of IFs.

martin.

ps Service Manager says new trannie runs $4 grand.
new sending unit installed & talking to the wacky computer $388 total.
One compared to the other.... priceless.

Hope all of this is covered by your warranty...especially if it turns out to be the transmission. Ouch! You told me you had about 7K miles left. If not, I'll be praying for you.

Great rally...a big thanks to all for your contribution!!!

Thanks Alan and everyone else who had a part in putting this together and thank you Lord for great weather! My wife Ruth and I were long overdue for a trip. We had a great time! The food was outstanding and we met some super people. We'll look forward to the next one. Steelbird, we enjoyed stopping by TOG and visiting with you and your lovely wife as well. We used to go up there several times a year, many years ago.

Thanks, Geven (& Ruth)

Hello Minnie's Mate, the business meeting is 10:00 am, and I don't think anyone would object to your coming (assume you are a member of GA Unit?) That's early to get up and to drive to Helen if you aren't already up there. If you are coming up to vote on the motorhome thing, I'm not sure it is worth the drive, as I think the vote will go overwhelming the way you would vote ( considering some of your posts on the matter) There is a small show and sell flea market, sometimes something good shows up, and then a new members seminar. Free time for a few hours, and then the rally meeting is not until 7:00.

Hey Steelbird,

Do you think there would be any charge to get in if I were to drive up & come in for about an hour an check out the flea market?

Thanks,

Geven

Geven, There would be no charge. The timing of the rally this year, and some unfortunate illnesses have kept people away. I'm not even sure that it would be worth your time. I'll admit to having found some pretty good stuff here, and other times....absolutely nothing. Levon is here, but he didn't say anything about bringing any parts with him. It might be a gamble, however, you are very welcome to come.

Alan,

We didn't get mom and dad in an AS, but picked up thier '60 Shasta Airflyte today. This too will be a nice addition to the Spartans and AS's.

You mentioned that your wife made the t-shirt quilt displayed in your unit, well...there's been ALOT of talk about it. Does she still make them?
