Go, you will only regret not going for the rest of your life. Don't ask how I know.

well Dennis.. I sort of was, but when I read it later... it came across a bit rude...we are now the old geezers with hearing aids, etc. but I don't think we all quite think of ourselves as them yet...

I wouldn't give a rat's about what anyone thinks. If he was important to you, then go. It's always good to pay last respects. Sorry about his death, Marty.

Not only are we the okd geezers, but we are the thread talkers too, I knew you wre teasing, Dennis knew it too, i was egging it on..... Smile....

As to the service. How do you feel physically. If you are coughing, that might give them another reason to respond unfavorably. I quit putting myself into any sutuation where i am not wanted. And that includes my sisters house.... I like good memories not unpleasant ones. But ultimately, you do what is best for you..... But I not a funeral attender..... Unless it is absolutely necessary.
But if you do, it is cold out, take extra precautions, you are vulnerable to other infections right now... Hugs...

And i kinda think Tim might be right..... Ssssssshhh..

Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

We have had so much snow in the last week. Yesterday it warmed up and started to rain. We are starting to see a few snow load collapse issues in structures in our area.

Good morning mutants!

This is an RVM Tip O the Hat and Special Recognition for Technical Service to my good friend Sky_Boss - a.ka. Don, a.ka. RVM22.

Yesterday Don came over and we regenerated my water softener. I had mentioned that the drying function on the Splendide 2000S seemed to be going south so he said let's look at that too.

We set about getting the softener regenerated and figured out that just as the guy who installed it had said - it can be regenerated without removing it from the bay - big advantage.

So when we finished - Don said look at this - your outside dryer vent flap is stuck shut. We scratched our heads on what might cause such a thing and came up empty. With a surgeons precision, Don began to probe at it with a screw driver and sure enough - it popped loose and opened. Yippee.

While we were looking at the Splendide inside he quickly unscrewed the 8 tiny screws in my Fantastic Vent screen and I washed the dust and crud off of it. We had talked before about his fan having removable screens that push in place so you don't have to unscrew them. So when Annie and Sandee got here - Sandee brought one of their screens for a test fit. Viola they work. Last night I went online and ordered mine. I found them a couple of places but went with PPL.

Then Sandee and Don showed their full timer sprit by hanging with us while I baked some taters and yellow squash and charred some steaks. We ate by Coleman light at the picnic table and a cool but nice enough temp.

So now for the rest of the story - I was in a funk when I woke up yesterday and called off our planned trip to the beach. Sandee had gotten up early - fixed Don his bacon and eggs and was ready to go. So Major Tip O the Hat to Sandee for forgivin' and let livin'.

AND - Last but not least I to the little lady that makes my life livable. Annie rolled through it too. All is looking up on the rainbow except the weather. The cold snap that is turning Plano - our old homestead 28 and slushy, icy and coooolllddd will bring our lows to the high 30's and highs to the mid 40's tomorrow and the next few days. Oh well plenty to do in all circumstances.

Again - many Thanks to Don and Sandee for being super mutants... don't miss a Mini-C opportunity with these two! And Annie is a joy to behold too. Me... well I have my good days....

Happy journeys mutants and those of you safe in your brick and mortar - all the best.

LOL....

Regarding the water softener...

What Steve didn't say was that we took a little over 2.5 hours and a couple phone calls to figure out what an 8 year old coulda figured out...if the water softener instructions were NOT bass-ackwards.

Because of that experience I will be able to do the same job in about 30 minutes. I learned a long time ago it is better to experiment on someone else system first.

Yes!
Don helped me understand many things with my "new" MH at the GC last April.
Sandee and Annie? It goes without saying that their contributions to our "tudes" and well-being is awesome!

All right now... yes the rest of the story is... yes I had read the instructions and told Don - I can't understand English... lol. Every time I read the instructions I was confused... so Don says - we'll figure it out. At about an hour in - he said - this instruction is backarsewards or something Iike that. But we let logic dictate - but what was odd - is that on the salt flush - the drain connection has a restrictor in it and the flush was soooo slow... and time in he directions was 20 minutes to flush the salt through the resin beads. That's when we called. Sure enough - tech support at Watts said about a 1/4 cup per minute and it is slow. Lol.

We both learned... and I will be there when he puts his back in action.

Sounds great; I'd love to meet Earlene and you. We'll have to plan something when things settle down a bit. How about this "arctic blast" we're having this week? We're trying to decide if we need to go open the low-point drains.
Agree, let the New Year settle down. Give a holler, if you remember.

Steve, they are right in front of your nose! Better yet, they are right where you put them.

See above on the filters.

You be careful about us old timers with hearing aids. I got mine with selective hearing, just ask Earlene.

You should have found a 10 year old in the RV Park to help understand the instructions.

Wayne - what kind of water softener do you have?

The picture of the Y connector was mislabeled or the instructions referenced the wrong outlet. Either way - it was misguided. As I said - we let logic prevail and knew the side with the restrictor had to to be the drain / flush side and not the side back to the coach... and yet that's what the instructions said.

I'm just glad we have it back together. Will be nice to have suds in the sink again.
