Bump. This info is for my neighbors who are heading out in their motor home tomorrow. If you don't know where the fuel/water separator is, do you know where we might inquire on the net or otherwise?
Thank you for reading and any help will be greatly appreciated. I could always call my neighbors with the info while they are on the road.

There is a kit Workhorse makes for manufacturers that didn't follow Workhorses directions for airflow to the rear of the engine. It's called a Workhorse 8.1 Engine Ventilation Cooling Kit. It's basically corrogated pipe like you use for gutter drains on your house. It's routed from the front of the coach to the rear of the engine. It comes with new spark plug wires and the installation kit. Ours did the same thing. The wires were burnt. Workhorses warranty covered it as it happened almost immediatley after our first trip. From what I've read the kit runs around $360 plus labor. It only cools when the coach is in motion, so idleing for long periods of time could still cause the problem to reoccur. Workhorse Hope that helps.
Yes, We are now home and unpacking the motorhome. UGH!
Thanks again to all..... We were mostly concerned about the lightning. The resort that we stayed at was Vieira's Resort on the Sacramento Delta. They are very knowledgeable about the flooding situation and we were very confident that they were absolutely on top of that. We would have been asked to move if they had even an inkling that we were going to get an measurable water.
They have some beautiful trees there and I took some pictures before the storms. I had thought that the trees would loose all of their leaves with the winds. But, they did stay.
It has been a very long time since I have posted pictures here. Will try one to start. If it does not work, I will work on this tomorrow. Too tired tonight...
Thanks so much for all of your suggestions. As it turned out, the weather forecast was incorrect. It did rain with a lot of wind, but no lightning or thunder. So, we just stayed put and rode it out.
Now, we are having intermittent clouds with mostly
sun shine. Headed home in a while....
Thanks to all,
At the first sign of lightning, we will raise the jacks, unplug from power and pull in the slides. Then we would be road ready to travel to a safer place within the resort.
We can not drive in the dark and we are on Delta levee roads, so it would be too dangerous to travel tonight.
We have not experienced even rain at present. We are getting the weather forecast from the weather channel. Hoping that the forecast is wrong. In this area of California, the weather has not been nearly as bad as the forecasts have predicted.
Thanks again to all of you for your replies and input.
We are camping at a resort near Rio Vista, CA. Thunder storms with lightning are on the way. Are we still grounded with the jacks down?
Any other advice will be greatly appreciated.:E

Hey Walter, you don't have to leave it at home, you can always "shorten" that FLexi-Lead right?

There should be a "thumbs up" smilie! ;~)
I know, you have not seen me around much, but I am here now. I am glad that Calvin got the message about the snakes. He is a smart boy!
I am wondering if you have to leave the shock collar on him or will he just get the message by seeing/smelling a rattler? :E
I think that we might try the electric wire on the top of our back fence. Not for the dogs, but we have had trouble with Foxes traveling through our side yard (where our dogs do not go) and hopping over our back fence. They go hunting in the open spaces behind our home. They were nesting, under the deck, of a mostly vacant home across the street from us. The owner's are now there, but don't speak English! UGH! :h
Barb, thanks for the idea. :W
Hope that you and Calvin are doing fine....
Guess you can tell that I have not been on RV.net very much lately. My bad. :R
I loved your tribute to Miss Harlee! I sure did see how her face grayed as she got older. I also loved the pictures of Harlee and Calvin sleeping together and the last picture, which I do believe is your favorite.
You know that you gave her the best life a doggie could ever expect. That is for sure. :)
Take care of yourself, remember the good times and keep Calvin close.
I am so sorry for your loss of Miss Harlee. :( I just know that the years she spent with you were the best that she could have ever hoped for. Your kindness, love, care and devotion to all animals is well known here on this forum.
Lance, as you stated, she is now at peace and pain free. When you start to feel down and sad, please try to think of the good times. Times that could bring a smile to your face. In time your broken heart will mend, slowly. :R
Rest in Peace, sweet Harlee.
