Gosh Larry & Don, you are up early. I'm sitting here trying to get my peepers open so I can be on time to let that puppy out... mmm... coffee.. sometimes, I just want to slide right into my steaming cup and soak it up.

Oh, and I'm relieved to hear Moonrover is still kicking.

Yep! with the 255 having a little less circumference.

Because Michelin 255/80R22.5's were not available I opted to go with the Toyo M154 (265/75R22.5) and the were several dollars cheaper.

So, as most of you know we are still plagued with leveling jack problems. After a short time the left front jack will drop down so every once in a while I have to "bump" it back to level.

Yesterday, just before we were going out for dinner, I went through the procedure. Take the ignition key down from the antenna crank handle (reminds me to take down the antenna when we leave) put it in the ignition and turn to accessory position, sit down in the stairwell and place the level in the spot I always use, level the coach. Then I get up, turn the ignition key to off, put the key back on the antenna knob, and open the door to put the step out.

Yesterday I missed a "Step." Yep, forgot to put the step out and when I stepped down I caught the top step but the others were not out. (Because my knees don't have full range of motion I go down backwards)

As I lay on the cement ground I thought of not moving until I could assess the damage. It only took a few seconds to know that nothing was broke and all I had was a skinned elbow, and my soon to be replaced knee that took the force of the ground in the final step down was (and still is) sore.

Thank you Lord for not letting it be worse.

That's my horror story Mel, and I'm sticking to it.

I have now modified my procedure. First item now is to lock the door then follow the rest of the procedure. At least by doing that and not being able to open the door should give me warning to "look down" before "backing down."

Nope. It's properly set up with quick connects by a couple of mutants.

Thanks, I did have some luck "help." For sure I thought some would say I should have landed on my head and I would not have had a scratch.

Or, my padding saved me.

The sun is up. The sky is blue. It's beautiful. So where are you? Dear Mutants. Won't you come and play...

Great song, nice vid clips! Thanks.
You and Tim are obvious in the clips: the hair. Not a bald head in the whole clip.
