We’ve used our generator more than I thought we would during the rally in Perry. The solar panels were doing great, but when it comes time for the microwave, hair dryer, and the coffee pot, I thought it best to fire up the generator. Besides, you are supposed to run it about an hour a month. It should have a decent load on it, so with the rally going, it fit right in to run it. When leaving the fairgrounds at Perry and checking the tires for pressure, engine oil, and generator oil, I noticed that we had reached the time for the generator to be serviced. I’d already purchased the oil and filters to do the job, but before getting it done we stopped by Speedco in Jackson, Georgia. With Speedco, all you have to do is pull up to the door and they are ready for you… We pulled up, got the go ahead to pull in, and things got started. No sooner had it started and it stopped…the drain plug had been stripped and would not budge. They didn’t have another plug, if they were to get the stripped one out, so they really didn’t want to take the chance to do more damage. They wanted us to drive up to Atlanta and go to the Onan Service shop and they could handle the problem for us. When we pulled up to the door at Onan, they told us that they couldn’t do anything for us until Wednesday but if we wanted to stay, they had a spot for us to hookup. That was Monday, today is Wednesday and tomorrow we leave. In being able to stay here in their security area for free, it softened the blow for the difference we paid here versus the cost we would have paid at Speedco. After setting up the coach for our stay, we headed out to find some fresh veggies. Across I-75, we just happen to have the largest "Farmers Market" in the state,
Today we accomplished number 2 in our agenda. CNN Atlanta has been on “the list” for awhile now and today was set apart to get it done.
