So far I haven't been able to find ANY fuses!! Definitely a scary thought--a manual is on the list of things I need to buy SOON.
This morning I woke up thinking that I need to have someone step on the brakes while I test the light--brakes and backup lights wouldn't shine if not in use, y'know...got my 11-year-old son to sit in the driver's seat and step on the brakes. It is bright and sunny, the white paint reflects like nobody's business, and I can't see any kind of light in the tester when I put the probe into the socket. I did see a spark though, but then had to give it up and get ready for work.
I then tried to run a wire to substitute for the rusted ground strip, got it in place, went into the bus to start it, and CLICKKKKKKK...oh crap. All this dinking around with the lights on and bus off have drained the battery. Either that or the starter is shot...crap crap crap...thinking I definitely need to change out the side door so it will work without running the battery down. There must be enough juice to open and close the door, but not enough for the starter....need to get home and find the battery charger.
This isn't going to work for this weekend--still too much to do, and I need to get all the gear in my minivan, ready to leave from work tomorrow afternoon. Honey will just have to sleep in the van (been there, done that) and it's one more camping trip sleeping in the tent.
Next month we'll go somewhere, even if it's only a state park 25 miles away...
