So we're going to take the motorhome out on its first real trip next week.  I fired it up thinking I'd go get the propane tank filled.  Since its such a beast when cold, I sat in the driveway for a good five minutes while it warmed up and quit running!  Apparently out of gas and the guage is apparently innacurate.  I put 2 gallons in and it fired right up. Great!  Now it doesn't want to go out the driveway.  Is it the tranny?  I got it backed up just enough to block the driveway and decided this just won't do.  I tried to go forward and it wouldn't go at all.  What could be wrong?  My mind was thinking tranny or torque converter?  Then I got out and looked.  After so much rain we've had this year and the motorhome isn't very light, it was sinking into the driveway!  The right side rear wheels were down to the axle!  I managed to dig it out and got it back onto more solid ground with much work and I'm totally soaked.  I am glad the motorhome does actually work.  I just need to improve the driveway this summer!

Thought I saw Noah on the ark float by earlier. Started to wonder if I need to put pontoons under my camper. Lol
