Howdy and welcome. Looks like you've gotten a lot of good advice already. I'll just add my condolences to you on the loss of your father. Best of luck to you.

Hi Pilot,

A couple of years ago I met a man with a similar situation to yours. He was a pilot for medical helicopter (I think it was the sheriffs dept) in the FL Keys. He owned a home many hours away up on the mainland. Like you he did a week of 12 hr shifts. Unlike you he kept a trawler boat in a marina in the Keys to be his home while flying. When your week is over you leave an RV with the jacks firmly down against the ground. When he left his boat, it was just a few lines tied to some posts in the mud. All the best to you!

Thank you very much for your kind words, I lost him April 1st last year but it's like it happened yesterday.

I did the boat in the marina about 10 years ago when I worked for US Customs in the Caribbean. I could probably pull it off again now but it would mean a 45 minute drive to work so I think the RV will have to do in this case.

Thank you. Didn't have much of a choice since I inherited it but the more I learn about it the more I'm starting to enjoy it !

Welcome from San Antonio. I always seem to sleep more soundly in my RV. Hopefully you do also. Be safe on the ground and in the air.

When I was told time heals I thought it was a load of crock or just something people say because they don't know what else to say to help you. I lost my Dad in April and yes I can say it's not as hard today as it was then. It's still hard to even write this now without tearing up a little but a few months ago it was impossible to not cry.

I was also told that 'time will heal' works for many in different ways. It is not meant to mean that you will forget for you never will but it will help you move on day to day. Death is just a part of life and something we will all do one day. It is how we accept it that will help.

It will get better with time but I sure wish I knew how to speed it up a little.

To all who mentioned the Oxygenics shower head THANKS, what a difference !!! I now have enough hot water to take a complete shower and then some. BTW buying it on eBay doesn't get you the lifetime warranty (as per Oxygenics paperwork) so I'm glad I bought it at the local RV store.

I also cleaned, or tried to clean, the hot water tank. I created a thread in the Systems area of the forum and am looking for ideas and your experience over there :
Hot water tank cleaning

Thanks again !
