I hope it is a easy fix too Tom but the smell of burnt oil is not a good sign,245 is a little warm they run between 180 and 220.They can tell in few minutes with a pressure test where the problem is.If I was closer I would help you and it would only cost you crab-cakes Shocked

What make of gauge and sender is it?   You did change the sender as well, yes?   Temperature gauge senders need good electrical contact with the engine block and ground, so you shouldn't use Teflon tape on their threads, just a thin smear of paste or grease.   Are all the connections and terminals clean, and all the grounds good?   Running a temporary new wire to bypass the original wire could tell you if the original wire is the problem.

Got the spillway installed. I tested it last night. It isn't a fast drain, but 1-1/4" pipe running 12 feet at a total drop of 1/4", I didn't expect it to. . . .

The water moves slow enough that the dirt doesn't make it in the drain, which I'm good with as it is less likely to clog the drain if it isn't in there.  Grin
I can now use a hose to push the dirt out the door & the water left behind finds its way to the drain. 24 hours later, the floor is dry.
Not what I was expecting, but I'll try it out for a while to see if any other issues show up.

A Dometic High Profile 300 RV Toilet is under $90 at AdventureRV.net ( when this style is mounted directly over the waste tank, it takes very little water to flush).

While you are there browsing around, look for a " portable waste tank " to see if anything suits your desires.

Thanks for the link!  I guess I will just see If I can get it to move tomorrow morning. Hopefully I can get it somewhere to rebuild the valve body if that is the problem. I'm still hoping for a temporary magic fix!  LOL!

I've currently got a fancified bucket. It takes a bin liner then after you've used it, sprinkle cat lit on top and close the lid.

What I'd like to do is work out some way of using a removable black tank that I can move easily fir emptying with a bonus of being able to connect via a stinky slinky to a sewer system.

FYI, flat ground all the way. Need to at least get out of the campground. It will be a nightmare getting a wrecker in here.

Thanks for the info!

Any thing I can do about it to limp home? If I rev engine is it possible to get it to shift to 2nd without major problems. If I have to go into the trans, it will have to either drive to my shop about 50 miles or be towed. If I have to get it towed I just as well call them tomorrow morning.

One like Jeremy's second picture was once parked near us when camping once.  There was an outdoor kitchen that stowed for travel and someone was working on dinner (driver?). The people we spoke to were German, and they were visiting several National Parks.  I do not think that I would like that type of travel, but it did not seem unreasonable for those that would.
