Day 51, 52 - Georgia to South Carolina - TT

Wednesday (51) - A quiet day here at the house. I participated in a test session since we have great Internet. I also took advantage of the opportunity to do apply software updates to my devices. I heard back from the mechanic at the shop, NGT Truck Center. The steering is fixed, oil and filters changed, generator service completed, and a complete check of the chassis. There is an oil leak on the hydraulic motor for the fan so the hydraulic fluid was low. Brakes good, air bags good, air lines good, air drier good. These are all things that haven't really been checked since we purchased the RV. I had assumed that it was done by the dealer. Not done at all. The mechanic was a Freightliner mechanic and said that we are in great shape. That's good to hear.

We had a fabulous southern dinner at Mary Mac’s Tea House. Corn bread w/pot likker appetizer, Brunswick stew, Chicken fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, collard greens, and peach cobbler for dessert. Wonderful flavors. Others in our group had tomato pie and fried okra. I’d go back to that restaurant any time…

Thursday (52) - We picked up the coach this morning around 11. I would recommend this shop if you need chassis work on your diesel pusher. Thank you Chris and Lori for your wonderful hospitality and for driving us back to the shop. The steering feels much better all around and the hydraulic fluid was low which affects the power steering and the cooling fan.

Our next stop was just across the South Carolina border and the Garmin routed us towards Atlanta, the onto the beltway before heading northeast towards Fair Play, SC. We are staying at a TT park so 50amp and water but no sewer. Since we are only here for a couple of days it really isn’t an issue.
