3/2/15 Monday in Wildwood, FL (Alliance Coach: Repairs)
This morning I felt the cold/flu had turned a corner – I had more energy, little congestion. At 9 sharp our DeSantis repairmen arrived. They started with the dryer, replacing the motor with a new one. They even got it off the washer. Unfortunately, there is still some whine in even this new motor, but it is quieter than the other and shouldn’t get worse because of Aaron’s motor oil bath for the bearings. Next up: our Maytag French Door refrigerator. He got the major freezer door off without all the taking apart we’d seen in a You Tube video, then tackled the back of our freezer, even moving the fin set up so he could install a copper wire in the drain tube. It’s connected to the heating element above, then drops well below the drain tube, so water can pass through easily to the drain pan, without freezing. Yay!
By this time is was noon, so we enjoyed sausage/hot dog sandwiches, then I cleaned house. It really needed it, since I’d not felt up to it for over 2 weeks. Lori, our service writer, called during this time so when I finished we met with her and paid our bill. Our warranty plan (Protective) covered all but the water leak in our closet. So helpful. On to Steak n Shake to celebrate our beautiful, all repaired, coach with a ½ price chocolate brownie fudge milkshake. Then grocery shopping (not much near our next campground at a Corps of Engineer Park in Georgia). We’re headed there first thing tomorrow. It’ll be a long trip for us – 250 miles. Once at the coach we visited a bit with a neighbor about his Aqua Hot instant water heater (needing repair), then settled down for a wonderfully air conditioned evening with that scrumptious spaghetti dinner again. It reached 84 degrees today. Amazingly hot. Hard to believe we were miserably cold just a couple days ago!
