Has anyone ever had this happen before?
Yep, with the van we were using to tow the boat across the desert to Lake Powell. Ever pay $600 for a Ford remanufactured alternator (in 1988 dollars) because you are in the middle of nowhere at the only shop for hours in either direction? It was a $30 part and it took the guy ten minutes to change.
