The TiogaRV Team has been very busy for several weeks, tweeking everything that we can onboard the fabulous Ms. Tioga.

Our 2004 Trip Plan includes traveling thru the states of Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North & South Dakota. We are tweeking now, so that we will have the least amount of maintenance problems during our 2004 Adventure!

This morning we will tweak into the Cummins Corporation located in El Cajon, Calif. Our goal here is to find out everything that we are able concerning the operation of our hardworking Mr. Onan, the 4 kilowatt generator that helps supply electrical power when Mr. Sunny is hardpressed for sunshine.

George changed Mr. Onan's sparkplugs this afternoon. In order to change the sparkplugs, Mr. Onan has to be lowered to the ground so that the plugs are exposed. Mr. Onan is very heavy, so George invented the "Knee Board" which is a lever that allows Mr. Onan to be lowered and put back into position. In the pic below, George shows off his proud invention, "The Knee Board!"

The Team decided to create a "Maintenance Manual" to keep track of all the things that we learn about Ms. Tioga. In the pic below, George shows off the new, "Ms. Tioga's Maintenance Manual."

Mr. Onan seems to be running very well now. George adjusted Mr. Onan's carburetor in addition to changing the plugs. George checked everywhere for a broken wire, and could find none. For now, The Team is declaring Mr. Onan fine and dandy!!
