Day 66 - Gordonville, TX - TT

I had looked into the engine compartment yesterday afternoon and noticed that the engine air intake hose had come off of it’s fitting to the body. Above this is just a large air plenum that is the full width of the back and about two feet high. Outside air intakes are on the upper rear corners of the coach. I ended up climbing into the engine compartment and standing on the frame rails to get the hose re-attached. It’s around 10” in diameter. Lots of sharp corners and dirt in there.

Please excuse the blurry picture. The camera lens cover on my iPhone case was really dirty. Something else to try and resolve during this shelter-in-place time. After a sunny morning, a thunderstorm moved into the area and the forecast is that we will be on the edge of the storm for the rest of the weekend.

According to the Amazon site, non-essential items such as microprocessors will be subject to a shipping delay. The delivery date for items I wanted to order is sometime in May. I guess that project is on hold...

Today’s dinner was take-out from Sonic. It was a nice change from my cooking.

Sonic was my first drive-in + eat experience, the car reeked of food for days, yikes... never did a drive-in again since ;-)

"I ended up climbing into the engine compartment"....now that is a big compartment if one can climb into it! I would think it's nice to have that maneuver room?

We brought the burgers back home. It wasn’t that far away.

Especially since I was standing up back there. This was the space behind the front of the engine. How about that for confusing...
