Did maintenance/repair on batteries. Checked them a few days ago and there was a lot of corrosion/buildup on a couple of the terminals.

Removed batteries and cleaned with baking-soda and water. Wire brushed terminals and connectors to remove corrosion. Had a new link cable made to replace the corroded one (the one between the two 6v batteries).

Put everything back together, coating with dielectric grease, and finally spraying all terminals down with battery terminal protector (got at OReilly's)

Looks much better now!

Ordered an electric tongue jack for my Trailer that I have yet to even take delivery on.

My truck has been in Chevrolet's service department for 7 weeks. No truck, no "delivery"...

There was a problem with the active fuel management where my truck was burning excessive oil. Last oil change in 2900 miles it had burnt 4 3/4 quarts of oil. Really that's not a typo.

They first replaced the pistons and rings. But the engine was making pinging noises. Then tore it back apart to change the valves and active fuel management valves, still didnt fix it. Now they have it back apart changing the cam and lifters.

The excessive oil consumption damaged the engine much more than they originally thought, or they tried to cut corners on the warranty work. (I'd bet anything on the second option) They would have had an easier time and cost them much less money to put a re-manufactured engine in it but they tried to get by doing as little repair as possible. Now they are swimming in their corner cutting repairs and rebuilding the whole thing probably costing them triple what the re-manufactured engine would have cost.

Man, that's something, did you call GM to see what they say about it? I would try to get a new engine out of them.

It was a beautiful day in the Okanagan Valley. Extended the awning to air it out and let it dry in the sun. Extended the slideout and check to ensure no leaks over the winter. Cleaned and re-filed the Dri-Z-Air.
All is looking good so far as i begin preparations for a new camping season.

Shoveled about 2' of snow away from the sides of her (it's now below the frame) so that the 12" - 18" we're expecting today has somewhere to go without covering the windows.
