Tandet Kenworth, Kingston, Ontario

We left Camp Hither Hills in south Ottawa yesterday afternoon and endured driving rain for our entire drive to Kingston.  We arrived at Tandet Kenworth on Dalton Ave before 4 pm and checked in before setting up for the night in their paved yard.  It was the first time we have boondocked since our trip back from Cape Breton earlier this summer.
 Cataraqui Creek Recreation Area
Phaeton Place went in for service first thing this morning and was done by mid afternoon.  The staff was very professional and did excellent work at reasonable cost.  I managed to borrow a deep socket from one of the mechanics to adjust one of the locks on the outside TV compartment that has not locked properly since last winter in Quartzite, AZ.  A simple adjustment that took less than 5 minutes.  I also found why we had no right brake or turn signal on the Saturn when we left Ottawa yesterday.  I would have fixed that before we hit the road but it was raining hard,  so I just left it until we got to Kingston.  The last time we lost our right side rear lights on the Saturn, we traced the problem to a blown 7.5 amp mini fuse in a rear compartment on Phaeton Place.  This time it turned out to be a loose wire of all things.  Another simple fix.
We visited Cataraqui Creek Recreation Area on Perth Rd while our coach was in the shop.  Today was actually sunny and we managed a nice 2 hour walk, as well as a few photos.  This is a very nice area which is in full autumn colour at the moment.  
We were going to spend tonight at the Flying J in Napanee before heading up to Kawartha Lakes for our appointment with Armand at Techmcw tomorrow morning, but Janet at Tandet said we could spend another night in their lot if we wanted to.  Clean, level, well lit, paved…..what’s not to like!

    We've had the same problem with a fuse going out on our Phaeton. We also had to replace the electrical cord from the coach to the toad because it had been caught underneath the tow bar on some tight places and got crunched. We now have a new one, compliments of Blue Ox during our recent visit.
    Have safe travels, and may you have clear skies.
