I ran 3 loads of laundry yesterday. Today I'm just going to enjoy the forecast 67 degrees. It is supposed to rain all day, but warm rain is good.

Today I replaced the four rusty screws holding down the refig vent on the roof with stainless steel ones. This vent holds tiny pockets of harmless water around the the screw heads. They should have been stainless anyway as every other screw on the roof is stainless. got them at Ace hardware in 10 min for under a buck. :-)

Today, as soon as it warms up, will be water filter cartridge change time. I noticed yesterday the particulate filter is getting a little color to it and my water flow has dropped off a little bit. I use a 1 micron filter cartridge so I do have to change them more frequently than some, but that is ok with me.

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.
This is a fairly common issue with the AFM 5.3l engines, in the newer style body trucks after 2007. There are pages and pages of reading on this issue on the Silverado/Sierra forum.

I am a member there as well. Usually the repair is not as deep as this one though. Most cases seem to be to decarbon the cylinders and replace the oil pan and valve cover.

I called the dealer yesterday and they told me the truck was on the lift and the tech was putting it together the "final time" as long as "everything goes right".

Does that sound reassuring or what?

Good luck and I hope they fix it right this time. I`m sure this has been a nightmare for you. That AFM messed things up. The pre AFM engines were solid as a rock and burned no oil, my 04 1500 with the 5.3 has 148,000 miles and burns no appreciable oil and it is still caramel colored after 4,000 miles....

Brought the Jayco back to storage yesterday. It's always sad to drive away and leave her in the storage lot. And she'll be there a while; busy season at work means no more trips until the end of April

But my new link plates for my WDH shipped yesterday, should be here Friday.
