Long Time No Post! RV Update

Wow, time goes by fast, there hasn’t been anything new on the RV front until today when we actually visited the RV! When we got there I noticed the Endeavor next to us has no white chalk streaking while ours looks horrible from white streaks all over. The mission this Spring, new tires and a full roof cleaning!

I turned the batteries on, unlocked the door and the steps went down, good first sign! I never used to go more than 2 weeks between exercising the rig but it has been over a month since I drove it and checked for mice. I checked the battery status and it showed about 50% for the house batteries. I turned the key and the engine fired up instantly, no strange noises just the purr of the Ford V10, sweet.

I checked for mice and apparently they made a visit, they cleaned all the traps of the peanut butter and made their escape. I knew these new fangled traps were worthless. No mouse poop anywhere so they must have looked for somebody else to mooch off of.

I then checked everything out, all looked good, I primed the generator and she fired right up, sweet! All tires were holding at about 85 psi so we took her for a 10 mile drive and parked her. Man I miss it, I can’t wait for the new season to open! I am going to email Geneseo and make reservations for the weekend of March 30th to maybe the entire next week, we’ll see but no matter what the weather, we’ll be there!

I hope everybody is having a great new year and you’re all very happy. Teri I hope your knee's are mending well and I’ll try and post more soon. I am selling more computer equipment and trying to get the house sorted out but throwing away junk and selling what’s worth selling. Slowly but surely we are making progress.

Until next time, have a great weekend!

Thanks Eric :), currently dealing with another wonderful cold and getting ready to start saving cash for the new suspension parts the truck needs before she can go back east (Leaf springs are completely worn out, to the point where bottoming out damaged an air bag, so replacing the suspension before attempting 5700 miles of driving).

I just knew there would be mention of that first trip! I'm glad things all seemed good with the rig. As for the mice, there has to be something else you can try.
March is just around the corner, may this spring be mild and beautiful for your first trip!
Love Di ♥

I've been wondering what happened to you. You normally don't go longer than a day or two with posting something. Glad to hear all is well. Won't be long and you will rolling the RV down the road again.

Hi Erik, I haven't been out to my RV in a few weeks. Looking to getting it out of the barn and packing it sometime next week. It willtake me several days I am sure, and I need to watch the weather but looking to head out toward the 3rd week of the month, toward AZ. Sure getting anxious!
