Friday February 7, 2020 Guerneville CA.
I had a lot of little things to get done today. Mostly prepping the van for a trip to Arizona and some yard work too.
Bolted on the belly pan
I found the bolts to fasten the van’s belly pan on. I’d put them aside when I took the pan off and I couldn’t find them until today so I got out the tools and crawled under the van and put all the bolts in.
Leaky radiator scare
While I was under there I noticed a wet spot on the bottom of the radiator. Oh, oh. Do I have a leak? If so that would postpone my trip.
I wasn’t sure about that wet spot. It could be from spilling some fluid when I filled up the radiator the other day so I needed to check it out. I got a rag and wiped as much of the wet spot as I could then decided to run the engine until it got hot to see what the wet spot would do and if I could find the leaky spot.
Fortunately the wet spot dried up as the engine got hotter so it looks like just some spill fluid. I’ll check the spot once more tomorrow to make sure it’s not a leak.
Water supply and bedding
After that I cleaned up my gallon water bottles and filled them with fresh spring water. I have to be careful where I get my water because of my corn allergy.
A lot of other stuff got loaded too, some food and some clothes among other things
The leaky radiator was a good scare today as it would have to be fixed and delay my trip departure, but it all turned out good, so far.
Nice sunny spring day and the radiator isn’t leaking. :O)
