Idaho Falls is not exactly a small town, however, it isn’t big one either. It’s large enough to have a BMW and VW dealer but not Mercedes Benz. This wouldn’t matter, were it not for the fact that the motor home has a Mercedes diesel in it.
I like the Mercedes diesel – it runs great, gets tettific mileage, and is powerful as hell. That being said, just try to get coolant for it. The BMW and VW dealer’s parts departments aren’t open on Saturday and the auto parts stores? Well, no. But after a bit of hunting, we found one that did have something that could work. And so, the diesel has oil and coolant and we’re planning on heading out tomorrow morning at 4am.
The drive to Las Vegas will take something like 12 hours. We’ll get there, have dinner with family, sleep, and get up early Monday in time to drive home and return the MH by 4pm.
And now I smell enchiladas.
