the Coachella Festival must have all been leaving at the same
time. I left at 11 am and did not get to Lancaster till about 6

Navarrete, P & V Diesel, added transmission fluid [$50] but it
did not fix the issue.

Casa Blanca for a few days. The coach's radiator was replaced by

|Saturday, April 1 - I departed Rancho Casa
Blanca and immediately noticed a major leak of transmission fluid.
It was caused when the radiator failed and let water into the transmission.

in the Patriot.
