12/30/13 Monday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)
Normal morning stuff until 10 am when we went to the Clermont Post Office. Christmas actually came this time – gifts from our son Justin/Jamie and our grandchildren. Sweet. We even got drawings from the kids to put on our refrigerator.
After lunch I was determined to attend to our repair issues, so I called a couple places for bids on our wall (where there has been major leak issues). Got one set for the day we leave for Betty/Denny’s place. I encouraged John to work on our microwave issue. He did. The upshot of our afternoon is, after help from Larry and more help from the Monaco technician, we learned that this issue is our inverter. We’ll need to buy a new one (not cheap items). So we’re set to go to Alliance Coach in Wildwood, FL to have that inverter installed. While talking about that I asked about an estimate for the wall damage. She noted that it may be necessary to tear into the wall to see how extensive the damage is, thus getting an appropriate estimate. Hmmm. Good point. So I called the previous RV business to cancel, since we might just as well have a Monaco business tackle this one.
This makes us wonder how much money we need to spend on our Miss Zanzibar yet again. Is it time to seriously consider buying a different RV? The problem is we don’t know what issues lie in wait for us with some other used rig and it will cost much more to buy a newer (than 2003) used diesel RV. Anyone have some spare cash they want to give away?
Tomorrow I get 2 cavities filled. Yippee.
