Almost Ready to Run from Snow!
We have new tires, new brakes, and new batteries. That's a start. We also have floor rot, of course, in the bedroom and Lord knows where else. We're winterized, so when we turn the water on again, there are sure to be surprises, knowing the nature of AS ownership.
We have no idea whether the heater or hot water tank work and haven't tested the LP for leaks yet, so it's turned securely off. Plenty of time for all that when we get to a warmer place. Meanwhile, there's Walmart bathrooms, campground bathrooms (although some have the water turned off this time of year in this part of the country!) and always relatives' places in Florida for refuge if we get down there and find all the tanks and the plumbing leak. Whatever is wrong, *sigh* will have to be fixed.
We knew it would be like this, though, and it's going to be a work in progress always. That's part of it, isn't it? Making a hobby of tinkering with one's AS. It certainly will be for us.
Right now, if I can get the Mister to agree, I'm for taking 'er to Florida and doing some sealing, tinkering, etc., down there where it's warm enough to play with our new toy.
Not much time to blog - there's a trailer waiting for us which is now parked alongside my daughter's house. She can't get to her carport for the moment. But, she's good about it. (Probably plotting how to stow away with our two grandchildren when it pulls out headed south!)
Attached a photo from when we first brought her home and she was out at the campground in the snow.
btw, we were getting ready to hitch 'er up and get out of there by now - I know all you er, northerners (I was about to say d... yank...) are going to say that's NO SNOW and my trailer is NOT level! Well, most of it melted before we made it back to the CG, and I don't know why it looks so unlevel - unless we had started jacking! Also...note to self, lesson #10 or so, do NOT put trailer on concrete pad that requires truck to be backed up a gravel incline about a foot deep in wet gravel. Was a rock throwing, bed swinging CHORE!
Happy ASing. I said AS-ing. Not....LOL
