Cortez, Colorado High 82 Low 46
I changed the fan clutch on the truck. There were some plastic rivets on one of the fan shrouds that I couldn’t get at without pulling the air cleaner housing. Then there were two bolts at the sides of another fan shroud that had to be removed. I finally managed to get them out, but had a lot of trouble getting them to start when I tried to put the shroud back on. The actual clutch wasn’t too bad to change. What should have been an hour project, took me three hours, but I persevered and got the truck back together.
We left Salina at about 9:00 and pulled into Camp Walmart in Cortez at about 4:00. It should have been a four hour drive, but we stopped a lot. There are about a dozen RVs parked here.
One of the stops was in Green River where we bought some melons. I’m not sure what kind they are, but the samples were sure good
The truck stayed fairly cool today in spite of all the hills we had to climb. We could hear the fan kick in and I’m sure it hasn’t been working for a while. We went over a lot worse grades today than going to Salina and the alarms never went off with the exception of the transmission got a little warm going through Moab because it was so hot with lots of start and stop.
Cindy got some pictures of the scenery along the way. She wanted to get some of the eclipse last night, but it was too cloudy until the eclipse was over, so we didn’t get any pictures last night.
We leave here for Albuquerque tomorrow and are staying in an RV Park for one night before we are scheduled to be at the Balloon Festival.
Thanks for visiting.
