The people at Alliance are really nice and the facility is quite large. We sit around in the lobby all morning before they can squeeze it into their schedule. They get it inside around noon and determine that they need to drain the fuel and weld the leak at the bottom of the tank. We were completed about 4 hours later and were on our way back to Disney by 5:00 pm, leak fixed and a little lighter in the wallet.
Karl, Ellen and I all had a great time at Disney throughout the week including 2 visits from mom and dad. The week was very busy without much relaxation. Disney trips are always busy and this one was interrupted by no less than 4 minor catastrophes in addition to the original fuel leak which was now fully repaired.
Our front AC unit stopped working caused by a malfunctioning relay in the electrical panel, the motorized awning decided to not retract and required some quick internet research and some repair time by Karl and I. The floor was wet under one of the windows and we realized we needed to reseal the window to solve the problem. The grey water tank backed up caused by the washer/dryer getting stuck on a continuous rinse cycle that kept pumping water into the tank. This problem was resolved quickly but not before the floor had gotten soaked again.
I did find time to install the Verizon USB wifi courtesy of Serrato Signs so we now have internet anywhere we go, even while we’re driving.
We did get to spend a day at each of the parks which gave Karl the opportunity to ride all of the Coasters, including 8 times in a row for Everest and 4 times for Aerosmith. We got to ride Big Thunder Mountain all by ourselves one day when it reopened after a two hour rain delay, it was cool being the only ones on the ride. We went to the pool several times and even squeezed in a short bike ride and several walks around the campground.
We are looking forward to our next trip to the GoodSam Rally in Daytona. Stay tuned, it’s going to be fun!
