Well, on Saturday morning I installed the new JACK HD antenna, good news and bad. The good news is signals that were showing 50% now show 100% but we get no more stations than before and now MeTV doesn’t come in at all where before it would once in a while. This means when we are out of the valley we will get a lot of stations but it’s clear that channels in the 3 to 13 range will not work in the valley, nuts. Hey, I tried right?
Next up, we bought… let me see now, 3 of the large Rid Rite Deluxe rodent repeller’s and 2 of the small versions. People complained of how loud they are but I plan on unplugging them when we are at the rig. I did notice after they were on for about 20 minutes they would drive me completely insane so I hope they have the same effect on the mice. I placed a large one in the kitchen, the bedroom and in the large storage compartment they had already spent considerable time in pooping and peeing. I cleaned out the storage compartment so we can see if they return. I also installed a small version in the bathroom and bedroom closet. Oh, I also disconnected the sewer hose and put mouse repellent powder on the water hoses that go into the compartment next to the storage compartment. So we’re crossing our fingers, toes and eyes that this works.
One last comment, every single person we talked to except one claims they never have mice in their rigs. I spoke to the gentlemen who bought a new Redwood yesterday and asked him if he ever gets mice, his response everybody here gets mice and I mean everybody. If they say they don’t they’re lying! He did say that because of the electronic repellers he has not had any in this new rig. I really really would love to get into a few of these rigs and I guarantee I find evidence of mice, I think people don’t look until they have done damage to something.
I removed two feet of the railing on the deck yesterday, it came out a bit crooked but we can now open the storage bin door, exactly one month to the day that we took delivery but hey at least I got it done!
Today I put down river rock and pavers but didn’t take pictures, I soaked through my clothing and my hands were black so I’ll take pictures of that next weekend but it’s turning out pretty nice.
Oh, I have to build stairs as well so hopefully I have that completed next weekend too! Have a great week everybody!
