Our Saturn Is Looking Fine

Monday morning started with a 5 mile run along the Ottawa River for both of us.  Nothing too strenuous as far as pace goes but a good solid run along the mostly shaded path by the river for the both of us.  Quite a few other people out for their morning fitness before the day heated up.  Looks like temps will continue to be quite warm through the week.
Speedy Auto Glass’s mobile truck came by after lunch to install a new windshield on our Saturn.  The old one suffered quite badly on our trip to Alaska last summer and I just never got around to getting it replaced until now.  Actually the truth be known, the worst of the damage to our old windshield occurred on our way to Dawson City from Whitehorse.  I just never figured that our Phaeton, which is equipped with an OEM stone guard, would throw the amount gravel onto our Saturn that it did.  Once we identified that as a problem, I just slowed right down on any gravel stretches.
The rest of the day was spent putzing around the motorhome.  One thing I discovered is that the LED light  in the toggle switch for our cargo (basement) lights is no longer working.  In fact, the cargo lights don’t work either right now, so I am not sure if it is the switch or a hidden fuse that I will no doubt find in the coming days.  Certainly nothing serious at any rate.
