One Leak Resolved?

6/6/13 Thursday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

We both had a hard time sleeping last night. Maybe due to the heat. Maybe because I was concerned about their abilities to figure out where the leak is coming from. Of course, we needed to get up around 6 am so we could be ready to leave the rig, all closed up and ready to move.

After talking with the technician, I was feeling a bit more confident. We took our computers into the Lobby and worked with them a while. The rest of the morning we spent talking with Bob and Kathie, our neighbors here at Monaco RV Factory. First about repair issues, then financial issues in retirement. Wonderful. We got our lunches at our own rigs, then went grocery shopping. When we returned the technicians were spraying water on the bad leak side of the motor home, finding that after an hour it began to leak. Dang! So they are trying to seal another molding piece in that area. At that point, John and I retired to the Lobby, where we got to talking with Bob and Kathie again.

Kim called us into her office for information to be added to their record for our Zanzibar. She was aghast that the service people were not eager to repair our other 2 leaks. I explained that it was because the one would be very expensive and time consuming and the other is hard to figure out. Later the lead tech explained that they had the new sealant on, but would need to wait until tomorrow to actually test with water for the leak. So we’ll stay another night.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
