This morning, I steeled myself for the process of starting the RV. Last night I had researched the problem as much as I could, and I was ready to locate the starter wire and 'hot wire' the RV if necessary to get it started again.
First problem -- I couldn't get it out of Park. This has happened before, so I went back to the Jeep, still attacked by the tow-bar, and shoved at the RV, hoping it would remove some strain on the linkage.
The gear shift moved, and then, the key switch moved. It moved far too easily. I could tell instantly that the key switch mechanism was broken. Now I couldn't even turn on the ignition, and of course the starter.
Some things I feel like I can fix myself. I grew up with simple electronics in cars and although I was never the guy who built a drag racer, I had some minor skills with a volt-meter.
But I can't make a broken switch heal itself. So Mary Ann called the AAA number. We have the RV-Plus coverage for this kind of problem. We called. They called back. We looked up numbers.
Now we wait.
