Stuck On

This morning, after a pretty good night's sleep on board the Rolling Stone (a 300 mile drive after getting up much too early, exacerbated by the daylight-savings time change, made sleeping easy), I drove to the office, where I was horrified to discover that I could not turn the RV off. The key was stuck in the on position. It would move the other way, but not to the off position.

I struggled with the key for a while, but I didn't want to break the key or the ignition switch. Now is the time I sort of wished that I still had the gas tank issue. With one empty tank, I could have killed the engine by swapping to the empty tank, which isn't really a fix for the underlying issue but at least would have stopped the engine.

After a while, as I was getting increasingly worried, I finally stumbled onto the problem. The tilt-wheel mechanism. I shifted the angle of the wheel, and the key released. Whew!
