2nd Repair Day

5/6/14 Tuesday in Decatur, IN (Allied Recreation Group)

We were better prepared today even though we didn’t know when they would need our RV. We got up at 5:30 am, ate a small breakfast then got it cleaned up and the rig ready to move. We proceeded to the office then. Fairly soon we saw our service adviser there and asked him about the plans. He hadn’t heard from our technician, so I told him we still had a leak in the bedroom. Ron had told our service adviser that everything was good. Soon Ron was waiting at the rig for us so when we got there we started putting the slides in. Oops. The wiper blade started pulling out when we moved the P/S slide. Okay. Then we took off for another try in the rain bay. This time we stayed with Ron. We had a lovely conversation for the 45 minute wait. Sure enough water started dripping, although not quite out of the same place as usual. Guess he had solved that problem, but now this new one was created. Back to the drawing board. It took him the rest of his work day to get the leak fixed so that after another hour in the rain booth it never leaked (Yay!) and put more screws in the P/S wiper blade.

Thus tomorrow 6 am sharp they’re coming to get the rig for its scheduled engine service as well as the  29 point inspection and lube ($634). We spent our afternoon commiserating with the other people here the realities of this lifestyle with RVs that need so much service/repair.

At lunch time we treated ourselves to lunch at El Camino Real, just down the Hwy. Excellent food and service. We both had half left over so we’ll save those for our travel day which will probably be Thursday-before the thunderstorms hit here.

A bit of spring:

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.
