TRIP OF A LIFETIME III travel blog


Magically the parts arrived by noon and the Volvo Center began the big task. They had an awful time removing the old disc system as the bolts had welded to the wheel from the excessive heat of the dragging brake. Finally they succeeded and rebuilt the right front wheel. We were extremely fortunate that the tire did not blow out from the severe heat! after about four hours we went for a test drive and the coach handled beautifully again and had its pep back up the hills.By now it was past 4PM and experienced truckers told us not to get on the highway to Tahoe since traffic was a nightmare on this holiday weekend. So we spent another night at the Grand Sierra. We had another great meal at Charlie Palmer's Fin Seafood restaurant. It was really delicious-Alaskan Halibut and couscous. We also shared a Cioppino and Gazpacho that were out of this world. What a talented chef. It was our celebration because Prevost paid for all of our brake repairs--some $4200. They really stand behind their product!
