Video - Two Bathroom Updates For Our Fifth Wheel

Hub had two changes to make in our Bathoom. First, he disliked the toilet roll holder that came with the RV, thank goodness they did not install it. I think they knew how lame it was. Once he cut the hole in the side of the cabinetry, he could more easily fix the pluming leak.

Now granted he could have just turned the black knob on the pex and called it done, but he wanted to have...

It Feels Good To Be Back In The Saddle

Publish Date: 

We are on our summer vacation. So much has happened in the last six months that it is nice to finally slow down. We are staying in Leavenworth twice on this trip. We start and end here. It's been a week and a half of lovely warm weather and an onsite disc golf course. Needless to say we have enjoyed every minute of it.

I did slip in a minor surgery four days prior to us leaving and that...

DIY - Fix To Our Fan Blower Motor In The Truck $19.99

Publish Date: 

Our initial fix to the intermittent fan blower problem in the truck stopped working in March. The blower would work most of the time, then some of the time, then not at all. I made a quick video showing the parts and where they live in the truck. Hub installed a new fan blower motor just because. He also has a backup Ignition switch and Ignition switch connector. Video length 3 min 2 sec.

So Far So Good! Two Weeks And Counting

Publish Date: 

We've been in our trailer for over two weeks now. I feel pretty spoiled in it. So far the most exciting event was discovering a mole had made a mound around our electrical connection when we broke down our first camp. We can handle this kind of stress, in fact we laughed at it. Now we are already camped at home number two. It felt so good to break down camp, move and set back up. In all our...

Today is Saturday. Our move started Wednesday afternoon. Hub is on foot rest so I did just about everything. I am totally fine with this because over the years Hub has moved us twice without me due to me being either out of town or recovering from surgery. Wednesday I packed clothes, bathroom, bedding. The truck was overflowing.

I picked up the trailer thursday morning. Hub was with me...

I thought I'd better post an update even if it isn't a very exciting one.

Our trailer axle is due to arrive at the dealer around 5/14. Ironically Hub has decided to pursue a minor surgery on his foot since we've had these delays. He is having a Morton's Neuroma removed on 5/14. We were surprised that the surgeon had an opening so soon and he took it. If the trailer is ready on time,...

UPDATE: I had the picture of the bad axle at the end of this article and some folks claimed they did not see it. This means those folks don't read to the end... so here is the picture of the bad axle just for them. In addition I made a short video and posted it as well, but you do have to scroll to the bottom to get the link. ...

We were so busy when we first picked up our new fifth wheel that we had no choice but to park it where we were staying. Then sadly we ignored it for the most part as we worked through a few commitments. I had a craft retreat, then I helped my mom after her back surgery. In between these two commitments I helped Hub with a rehab project at one of our rentals.

We were...

Prior to hitting the road we were hands-on landlords. It was difficult to be on the road and see the costs for various repairs that we would do if we were home. Budget-wise we have been able to weather some extensive repairs and still pay all the bills. Now that we find ourselves at home, we let the PM handle the day to day repairs. However, it is in our best interest to be involved with...

After the accident it seemed like everything moved so slow! Then at the end of February, things finally all came together. We picked up the truck on February 23rd. Then we spent the weekend fine tuning our trailer requirements and narrowed down the list.

We started the research before we came home. While in Arizona, taking a couple of days to recover from the collision, we visited a...
