|Sunday afternoon - in front of our home|

|We're next up to cross into the US of A|

|Seattle was coated with either pollution of marine fog. It looked more like pollution to us though.|
|Rolling through Portland, Oregon @ 1:15 pm.|

|The long pull throughs worked well for us - without having to unhitch.|

Final word on this RV spot? We would come back again. Price is right and it is quiet. I heard the faint sound of a train, last evening, but it was negligible.
Problem: About 10 miles before arriving at the River Life RV Resort, the ABS light appeared on the dash in our truck. Hmmmm, what's with that? The brakes worked well so no concern about not being able to stop. I tested them on a straight stretch of road.
Once we were set up with power and the heat was warming us up nicely, I read our truck manual to learn that the ABS light alone does not mean one has a serious brake issue. It could be a sensor that has gone faulty. That sensor is attached to the rear differential. If the ABS and a flashing red dash light (brake) appear together, that is a problem.
I was on a Ford users site last evening and read several comments about the ABS dash light. It appears that this is common enough. However, with our next drive having us cross from southern Oregon into northern California through 7 high mountain hills and valleys - through the Syskiou mountain range, I err on the side of caution. Shortly after posting this blog, I will call the local Ford dealer, near here, to get our truck in for inspection and necessary repair, if required.
So....that's what's up from here. It was -6 overnight. This morning, I found the plug in for our truck's block heater and plugged it to power. It should help fire up the diesel a bit better.
So, we may have to spend one more night here at River Life or, if the truck issue is a quick fix, we could find ourselves at the Seven Feathers RV Resort. We'll see what transpires.
That's it from here in central Oregon.
Thanks for dropping by.
