California Golden Aires – Presidents
Greetings from Southern California. We are attending three back-to-back rallies. The first was the Arizona State Rally that was hosted by Ted & Ruth Ann Hindes. As usual they put on a fantastic rally. We are now heading to the second rally, Region One’s Rally in Benson, Arizona, hosted by Larry & Mary Roberts. The third and last will be the Nevada State/Mother Lode Chapter Rally hosted by George & Cheryl Zellers and Mike & Mickey Fisher.
While traveling to a rally this year in our 2007 Dutch Star, we had a rear air bag fail and lose air. The air bag had cracks in it and was unable to be driven due to the angle of the driveshaft. It was the 4th of July weekend. We were hot and sitting in a truck stop. It was very hard to find and get air bags for our Spartan chassis. We were able to get air bags for the rear of our coach the next day, and continued our trip. As soon as we returned home, we had the front air bags replaced. Lesson learned: Just like tires, air bags will age out and fail. It is worth going underneath and inspecting them occasionally.
The California Golden Aires will be hosting a 3-day rally starting March 4-7 at the Pechanga RV Resort in Temecula, California.
