While Sandi was go I went over to the 5er to empty cabinets and start to transfer the kitchen STUFF. The MH has quite a bit of inside storage, although not as much as the 5er. So as I transferred , I also purged a lot. Out of date / in the trash. If it was glass, it didn’t make the cut.At least I can see the table and counter.
Sandi would be back after church to help again. When she got here I took some pictures with her phone of her Easter finery. Then she changed clothes and we got back to work. We finished transferring everything except the flat screen TV and the W/D. Russ would take care of that later. We locked the 5er and got everything secure and headed south to the campground. For some reason I didn’t have any turn signals or 4 way flashers. So we would have to go back on Monday. We got everything hooked up and turned on the water in the kitchen to wash our hands and then we had a flood on the floor. NOT a good thing. Sandi called Russ at home and he said to bring it back in. So that’s what we did, UN hooked and drove back to McClain’s. I backed it in again with no problems hooked up the power and water and spent the night. Sandi had to go home.
So while I had to wait to be seen in the morning, I continued to find homes for the things that I had and continued to purge.
Corey came over to find the source of the flood. Evidently a connector popped off the drain pipe. He was able to re-connect it and then secured the hoses to the wall of the slide so there wouldn’t be so much stress on the connection when the slide moves. He then found a loose wire under the dash and fixed that. I had some other questions about some of the things that Daren went over in the PDI, so helped with those.
Since I have problems using the TV antenna on the ceiling, I asked Russ what it would low take to replace it with one that I wouldn’t have to raise or lower and if they could do it right away. Russ offered to use his employee discount to save me some money and of course I accepted the offer. They installed it in the afternoon. (It’s a JACK Digital HDTV Over-the-Air Antenna with built-in SureLock Digital TV Signal Meter) I turned over the keys to Russ and he also took out the flat screen TV out of the 5er and I put it on the bed in the MH until I can replace the ones that are currently in the MH. There were a couple of minor things that needed to be done, but it was late and the techs had all left, so I stayed one more night. In the morning I would settle up the bill and finish the last couple of things that needed to be done.
I had a bit of a scare last night. I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. There were some storms going through during the night and Angel was laying with me. Sometime during the night she got up and left me. I called her and NO answer. I knew that she was inside, but I couldn’t find her. I kept calling her, beginning to panic. I had looked everywhere, from the bedroom to under the dash, in her tent and crate, just EVERYWHERE. I went back to the bedroom calling louder. Then all of a sudden I see this little black nose push it’s way out from below a mountain of pillows as if to say, “What do you want? I was nice and comfy here!”
That brings us to today. Here it is, Tuesday. Of course they had to work me in, because, I wasn’t on any schedule, but eventually I got everything that I needed and paid for the TV antenna installation. I got out of there before 11:00 am, just in time for another thunder storm to roll through. Okay now I have the experience of driving in the rain or should I say a gully-washer. I took my time and pulled into the CG about 20 minutes later and sat for a while until the rain let up. When it did I went outside to hook up everything. WOW, it is soooooo much easier. It only took maybe ten minutes. The only things that I have to figure out again is the leveling jacks and setting up the TV.
So I’m settled in for a couple of days and then Sandi will pick me up to take me to the hospital for my pre-op check up on Thursday. Charlie will come back with me to spend the weekend to help me go through the outside storage. I will try to purge more STUFF. Hopefully we will have some decent weather or we will do more inside. Now that I have full-timing for almost two years, I know what use all the time and now that I know how much room I have, I can get a better handle on what stays or goes. I will have most of it done before I go in for surgery on the 22nd. After that I can go through papers, which is what I usually put off until “tomorrow”.
I think that I will fix something for dinner and maybe continue to figure out the TV.
Take care and stay dry.
