Yes, fluid levels and fuses were first things on my list. All were good.
Hopefully the dealer can expedite getting what ever needed repairs done and we can be on our way yet tomorrow, "only" one day late.
ON THE OTHER hand it is much better to have the problem pop up at home and not at a remote campground on the Georgian Bay.
Other past "adventures":
1. Driving over the Smokey Mountains on the Blueridge Parkway. Near highest point and van power steering pump fails. Have to drive down out of the mountains on very windy two lane parkway. Lucky I was able to get behind a guy pulling a travel trailer and he was going really slow. So he and not me was holding up the rest of the traffic. My arms got 6 inches longer from pulling on the steering wheel through all those turns.
2. Being at Yellowstone N.P. and discovering that my front breaks are really, really warn out. Wife could hear the wear indicators rubbing for a LONG time but I couldn't hear them. She didn't bother to tell me because of my "normal" response when she hears a funny noise in a car. The van at the time only had 30k miles on it and it didn't occur to me that I should be checking the breaks for wear. Made very heavy use of 2nd and 1st gears descending out of the mountains to get to a dealership. Front pads completely gone but the rooters were still in good shape.
3. My wife reminded me. Our old Ford van..... I think it was a 1980 van that we got in 1990. it was our prototype RV. Any way, we were in Killarney Prov. Park on the north shore of the Georgian Bay. The park had only gotten a road into it two years before we got there. Up until then the only way in was via boat into the local fishing village. Any way just as we pulled in the van ECM died. We were able to get to a camp site but that was all. The ranger let us use his marine radio to contact a "garage" (aka: jack of all trades boat repair shop) in the fishing village. A couple of the owners buddies came to the campground and towed it the 10 miles into the village. Yes, it was the ECM and closest town that would have a new one was Sudbury and that was 50 miles and two hours away. He did have an old used one in his stash so I went with that. It worked fine. If I remember right he charged less than $100 for the whole job.
Maybe we need a thread on near misses.
