After I got all the slides in and everything unplugged and unhooked, I figured it was time to say goodbye to the campground and head back down the road. Everything was secure, all the dogs were in and ready to hit the road, so all I needed to do was raise the leveling jacks. I got in, fired up the engine, and pushed the retract jacks button. This RV has a mind of its own and I am not sure which jack it started to raise first but there was a lot of loud noises and the rear of the bus was moving to the down hill side.
I figured they were ruined and I was stuck at that camp site. But, not to be deterred, I got out my tire iron and used it as a pry bar. A spring had come off and they were pushed at an angle. It took all the strength this old man could muster to force them up ever so slowly. Lying on the concrete and straining to get them both up in place (the front two came up on their own - thank goodness) was way too much for this old body. Sorry, I was way to busy to even think about taking a picture.
My wife wanted to go to the flea market, so we headed there first. We got to the flea market without any further problems. The dogs and I stayed in the RV. I didn't feel like getting out and walking around. My wife, of course, did and, of course, brought some goodies home. She wants to go back tomorrow and told one of her friends that she would show her the inside then, when the dogs were back home. Not sure if I will try to make the Jeep drivable until the claims adjuster shows up next week. Like Billy Bob said, it should still be drivable. Hope he is right and nothing serious happened to the front end. I am going to relax the rest of the day and I hope you all have a great day, you hear?
