Well the mechanic we called never did call us back so I called Good Sam Road Service and within 1.5 ours we were back on the road.  He crawled under the front end and had me pump the brakes and he found one of the hoses loose.  The mechanic who installed the new caliper did not get the hose tight so It was leaking all along.  I called the service manager and boy do I almost feel sorry for that mechanic, he was in for a chewing out.  Bessinger's Automotive Repair in Pacific, MO is a wonderful place, they are going to reimburse me the $45.00 the wrecker guy charged to do the 15 job of tightening up the line and refilling the master cylinder with brake fluid.

So we are on the move and God willing will be quite an adventure.

so glad you had Good Sam... every member should have it.  Plus, you sure got the right tow truck person and Bessinger's did the right thing. Nice to see there are still good honest hard working folks out there!

Now, we'll watch for your next "adventure"!

Well we made it to Montana with no more problems.  Except for high crosswinds in South Dakota and Wyoming, which is to be expected; as the saying goes, snow never melts in the Dakotas or Wyoming, it just blows around until it wear out :)

Get to spend 2 weeks here then we will begin the long trek home.  and Lord willing, there will be no problems. 

Cheers to all and happy travels, and remember monitor CB channel 13 and maybe we can get to chat. 

Glad to hear you are having a better and safe trip.
