Yesterday, when we took the Journey back to the storage lot, because it is going to sit for a month or two, I had to shut down the main house power switch and the chassis power switch. With all the little sensors and alarms that are wired to both sets of batteries, they add up enough of a power draw to run the batteries way down if left on. The house switch is right on the dashboard. The chassis power switch is in back of the Journey, inside the engine hatch.
If you remember a couple of weeks back, I found the engine hatch fiberglass had started to come loose from the hatch frame and I used some heavy duty epoxy to bind the two back together.
Well, the epoxy failed and the parts came apart again. A defeat. :c(
However, I don't give up easy. I've already figured out that I'll use some JB Weld, I've read it is one of the best 2 part epoxies on the market. I'm also going to get some stainless steel screws, drill holes around the edges of the frame after I put on the new epoxy and screw the two parts together. I don't think the hatch will come apart after that.
I'll turn a defeat back into another victory, but now with all the holidays coming upon us, the real trick will be finding the time to do it.
