Dave and Leslie pulled out ahead of us and went to the sani-dump...we pulled in behind them. When it was our turn...and as Steve was waiting for the tanks to empty...he noticed a black streak on the drivers side fender and the trailer seemed low over the wheels. Great!! It appears the leaf-spring had broken...and we had just had the entire trailer suspension replaced a year ago on our way down! Sheesh!
We told Dave and Leslie that there was no point in them waiting around for us so they continued on to Picacho.
We finished up at the dump and pulled over near the gatehouse and went in to see if they could recommend a mobile RV tech. The Ranger gave us a couple of options...suggesting we try Arizona Road-Runner RV first.
After a couple of phone calls with them, about an hour later, Wayne, the tech arrived and had a leaf-spring with him. It took awhile, but he managed to get us fixed up.
Only the top leaf spring is still holding, the rest have twisted to the side.
When Dale returned with the water containers, he had Ruth with him...it was nice to have another chat with them both. Thanks very much for filling our containers!
Now remember this picture and that tallest peak...Steve and Dave are going to attempt to climb to the top!
We relaxed at their place with a couple of drinks before dinner and then Dave grilled the burgers while Leslie put the salad together....delicious dinner!
After dinner, we all went over to our place for dessert...sharing 2 mini pies that Leslie and Dave had and adding our frozen yogourt. Yum!
