Ok! I will definitely take a look tomorrow once the sun is out- I bet I can check it! I haven’t noticed spots, but I can double check.
I’ll also re-check the oil, but I am pretty sure it did not look like chocolate milk… looked normal, but very full.AndymParticipantDecember 5, 2018 at 8:57 pmPost count: 944
Ok, so I’m guessing it’s just a loose clamp. You’ll only maybe be able to get a hair of a turn tighter, but that will make the difference. Give all of them you can access a slight turn.
If the oil looks like a chocolate milk is when we have a problem.
also try to check the coolant at the same time each time, if you check it when it’s hot “warm motor” it will be different than if you check it when the motor is stone cold in the morning.
But keep driving it, sounds like your onto its habits. Not a big deal

Andy is like family and always will be… Look forward to seeing you soon!!!! 😎Audrey JonesModeratorDecember 6, 2018 at 9:53 amPost count: 200
Just got done checking everything-
the oil definitely doesn’t look like chocolate milk, so that’s good!
I was able to tighten the clamp almost two turns around, so I’m thinking that was the problem!!
went to Napa and bought the coolant, came back and saw someone was thinking of me and put some under my seat! So now I have plenty just in case 😁
ill keep an eye on the coolant, but I’m hoping it was just that loose clamp!CorporateModeratorDecember 6, 2018 at 10:39 amPost count: 911
Hahahaha…. that’s so funny….. I totally remember moving it in and out from under the seat, but did not put that into permanent memory🤣🤣🤣
Nice work Audrey!!!!!!!!!!
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!AndymParticipantDecember 6, 2018 at 1:35 pmPost count: 944
sounds like your hot into the trail. Keep driving it and report back in a week or so on it’s habbits.
There’s 6 clamps I think to check on.

Just call me “van-a-gone”, as in all the time. 🙂
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.AndymParticipantDecember 12, 2018 at 9:41 pmPost count: 944
Very cool, I thought you were older..like 25ish, by how you act. Happy birthday.
Glad that hose clamp was the issue. Easy fix. Hope JJ or someone at KCW can add a thermostat during your Xmas visit. Then you can melt straws 😎. I feel bad! But 2 10mm bolts and a $5 part will fix that issue.

Audrey… You could call RMW and ask them to put one in for ya… Then you would heat on the way home… 😎 I doubt it would cost much..Audrey JonesModeratorDecember 14, 2018 at 5:59 amPost count: 200
Thank you!! And No worries Andy, we are doing fine without heat! When the sun is out all those windows let plenty of warmth in 😎
thats a good idea to just call RMW… I might not be able to coordinate getting it up there before Christmas, but I’ll try to!John JonesKeymasterDecember 14, 2018 at 7:14 amPost count: 6941
Painters could handle it.. hell I imagine a lot of people could… I’ll take care of it when you come home next.. But your drive over is gonna be COLD… 😎 But if you want to go the RMW route… I’ll pay for it.. 😎AndymParticipantDecember 14, 2018 at 7:59 amPost count: 944
Audrey I’ll get some pictures for you how to do it later yourself…it’s super simple. Yeah you’ll have to lay on the ground, but find a blanket or something. Or have your boyfriend do it, or kick him in the ding dong if he can’t.
10-15 minutes max to do this job.
