This is very cool!!! Not the fact that Paul had a problem- obviously- but how you guys respond and take care of each other and the way this board helps. Man, it is just too cool!!!!! My hats off to ALL of you!!! Count me in!! I love it!! I'm pretty inexperienced, but I love to help people.
 
  Also, this was a pretty enlightening thread!!! It looks like another alternate compressor would be a good piece of equiptment to have around.

  Hope Paul is ok and everything works out!!!!

I don't see where Paul got back on the road. If he's still having problems getting compressor I can loan him a car to get home for the xmas celebration and we can work on the bus after xmas.

update please

I tried to call Paul around 1:00 PM central time today and got voicemail.  I left a message, but he hasn't called me back.  So at this point, I am as much in the dark as everyone else!

Greetings to ALL,

I arrived safe and sound on Christmas Day!
Thanks to all for your help!
Clifford was able to provide me with an exact match for the compressor. After installing I had a couple of leaks, oil, fuel (hole in fuel line above compressor), air. The exhaust line flange did not mate up properly, put some high temp sealant on it, tightened up half way, next morning I tighened it up completely. NO AIR LEAK.
I headed to Tucson around 10am and got to my daughters house to visit with my family there and left the next morning at 2:30 am heading for Abilene Texas. I arrived at 5:30 pm on the 25th. It was a long drive but I was determined to make it.
I spent a wonderful evening with my wife and her parents. The best gift of all was all the help I received to make it all possible. YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE THE GREATEST.

I am using my brother in laws computer now as I will not have access to the net for a couple of more days. Just wanted to personally send this to let you know how it went.

Thanks again to so many who provided information and especially to Clifford and his wife Sonya for driving from Laughlin to Palm Springs to help me.

Happy Trails,

Paul

John,

Your number is programmed in my cell phone. My wife and I want to come down and visit someday. Might even bring Dreamscape with us.

Thanks again,

Paul

 Paul, sure glad everything worked out ok, I was just wondering if you were able to hook up your small air compressor behind the eagle emblem in front of the bus like I had mentioned, or did you find another way?

Pete,

Yes I was able to hook up my aux compressor to the spot you metioned. I had to drill through the front stainless piece that is not part of an original front on the coach. After locating the fitting from under the front looking up, I measured where to make the hole. I removed the cap and installed some brass fittings so I could plug into it. It took about fifteen minutes to air up.

Thanks Pete for you help and advice, it make my situation go much better.

Happy Trails,

Paul
