craftyfox;
We traveled on Hwy 2 from Browning to Kaspell. What was being done was chip sealing which caused the road to be shut down on one lane and a pilot car used to lead vehicles, or a stop light to hold traffic.
However, trying another route will probably lead you into other road work.
I felt lonely if I did not see a Orange Work Ahead sign about every hour.

Your trip report makes my coolant leak, lost trailer wheel, and brake problems seem like a walk in the park compared to your issues.

We lost half a day getting work done on the trailer mainly because the problems happened late at night and the shop didn't open until 8 am.

Pure fiction. The giveaway? Claiming DW won at the casino!

Great report, and funny, too. As for the codes, we began getting those on a return, thankfully, on our way back up into the mountains a couple weeks ago. The problem was basically the same. A clip fell of and allowed rubbing through the insulation on a wire near the brake of our Jayco. We're still in warranty though.

CEKKK;
When I found a place to pull over it was lightly raining and several water puddles were around the area. When I found the problem I made a new wire harness out of nylon string and tied up the wires. Fix held until we returned home. I call my Jayco Eagle FORD II (fix and repair daily)

Yup, that's about the same way my vacations usually go. Frustration after frustration.
Then when you finally get home and think about it, you realize you really had a great time anyway.
