We left about 8 AM this morning traveling Southeast to Phoenix. We got our hotel for the night and went for dinner. As we turned into the street for the restaurant, there was a noise from the differential and the car fail to proceed. We pushed it into a nearby lot and called AAA. They sent a rollback truck and hauled the car for us and took us back to our hotel. We called for a rental car and will leave in the morning for home to pick up the trailer. Mike will haul the car home with his trailer.

Wow that is some sad news. Sure hope the problem is a simple fix but something that can only be fixed at home. Even this sad news is making travel memories. Just not good travel memories. Its too bad someone from home couldn't have driven the tow vehicle and the trailer to where you are broken down. That saves half the trip and half the time. Good luck on the return trips. You guys actually get to do the return trip twice. Now is the time to plan to stop at places you did not stop at on the first return trip.

Mike .Sounds like one of the planetary gear pins broke through the pot metal retainer and locked you up. Randy I hope it goes well from here.Randy

I think I broke a axle, probably the left drive axle. It is not locked up. If that is the case, not so bad.
CORDially Mike

We have towed car to a safe place. Our rental car should arrive shortly, and we will be headed bak home for our truck and trailer. We checked in to renting a trailer rig to go home but were not satisfied that it would work for the car.
