Gilboy's continued........

So the problem with the RV was that the air system had a leak in the air dryer, so would not hold air for brakes etc.  They had put a new air dryer on and also another part, did not make any difference and so after much stress and time spent decided to put another new one on and magically it worked.  Two defective parts later and a full days work for the mechanic, we paid the bill and were out of there as fast as possible.  Wanted to make some miles before dark so left Butte, Montana at 5:20 in the afternoon.
A few interesting points to note about Butte, Montana.  It was a very large city back in the  day, over 140,000 residents.  Recently, they have been doing some new services in the historical area and have found old bars, etc. under the streets from the prohibition days.  It is also home to the beautiful sculpture of Our Lady of The Rockies.  She is high on the mountain to the east of the city.  Google to find out more if you are interested.
The sun was shining and we had a beautiful drive down the highway, kept going as the road was good and almost no traffic.  Arrived at the Walmart in Idaho Falls and 9:00 pm.  After a beer for Jim and a quick snack, we hit the sack, read our books for awhile and had a beautiful sleep.  The Walmart in Idaho Falls is right next to the I-15 so easy access and lots of room to park for the night.  So ends our time spent getting the RV repaired
Thanks for tuning in!


  1. Its a good thing that you finally got it fixed and back on the road again!

  2. Good to see you back on the road. We had a similar event happen, when the new RV part did not work. The third new part was the charm but we spent 2.5 days sitting in a fenced yard miles away from anything in the wind and the rain. No fun.
