I was recently in Louisianna helping with Hurricane Isaac relief. I had decided to take my rig, a 92 Monaco Dynasty, on the trip so I could have my cat with me. The rig sat for 3 years before I got it and still has issues".
The roads in MS and LA leave a lot to be desired. All kinds of things were shaken loose during the trip down and I spent a fair amount of time putting things right again. I had the brilliant idea that since I had access to a decent shop, I would take care of the generator muffler that FELL OFF on the rough roads and get my brakes done.
It took them a week to get the repairs made. I prepared to leave and the shop calls. They had gotten ready to test drive my rig after the brake job and the transmission line let loose. Dumped transmission fluid all over their drive. So, needless to say, I was not able to leave on my schedule.
When I picked the rig up the following Monday, I was more than ready to head home. I had been in LA for over 21 days and I was tired. Tried to crank the generator and it wouldn't run.

It was a warm trip, but I didn't slow down until I was way out of LA!
Guess you can't get anywhere if you run with your brakes on.
