Today is better! i had a good time with SanjayR and Chilled 0ut with some good tunes on the hifi and Deb was at a christmas party the all girls thing. I was going to try and maybe get the front levelers in place to see what has to be done to mount and no way, Its quick sand!! I bet if I moved the coach two to three feet it would sink to the frame!! And Now the weather man wants to be used as a target!!! Calling for rain and then ..more rain and then it goes to the 30's?? And moe rain!!?? What the heck happened to global warning!!!??

sounds like you need pontoons instead of levelers on that rig. . . Make yourself a houseboat. . .

I'm Back! Sanjay I did a system restore last night as it got so bad. I took it back till it was when i got it back from the shop on 20 Oct. All the files and programs were there but nothing worked!! I never had that happen before but then I don't remember ever using that far back before so maybe that was why. I worked last night till 0300. And have been working on it for almost the all day too! Right now its the bookmarks I'm trying to find!!
Its raining here and is supposed to get snow flurry's so I am keeping the camrea out so if.... they are calling for the flurry's in Tucson, and we are higher that they are so ???

Well, We are back! They resealed the window and just for kicks and giggles sealed the clearance lights! Time and rain will tell!
I was cleaning the windshield and side glass and was using some 91% wood alcohol, And had a soda right beside it and Picked it up by accident and One swallow later I was trying to get it all out and i pretty much did but it still cost me five hours and a long walk to get it out of my system. I still have a sore belly. Darn, that was dumb!!! getting old is no fun!!!

I'd sure like to find out what they did with my computer!! The night before no problems and the next day the keyboard was hardly working. You type a letter and That letter might show up in say 3-4 seconds! The mouse worked just fine But anyway, Its in the shop and I should find out what happened around the 20th....

Dan,
I have used windex and old newspapers to clean windows for years.Super clean end result.Seems the news print has something to do with it.The accident you had isn't funny at all.I hope you are ok and are feeling better.

Not the print, but the paper itself. Really high absorbency and strong. Also it is cheap to get a hold of. No need to buy the expensive name brand window cleaner either, as the cheap stuff (that you can get at the dollar store, for example) works just as well if you polist the glass yourself (that is what the newspaper is for. Professionals have been doing it this way for quite a long time. . .

Dan, it is starting to look like your system is corrupted beyond their capacity to repair. This is simple to check: When you turn on the computer, does it say "Welcome to Windows"?

There is a story about this window cleaning but was going to let dead dogs lie! My daughter was living here with us for awhile and used the front to put her stuff and Our grand-daughters stuff. She pushed the rubber backed curtains up against the glass and the rubber came off in the 120+ temps! The side windows have plastic tint and You can't use a razor blade on it! I was using the alcohol to get the rubber off the side windows. I was able to get it off the windshield with the razor blade scraper.
I got a call from Road Runner today and we are going down tomorrow to get all the other stuff that we had been waiting for done. Everything is in! The awning, The curtains, The backup camera and figure out what they did to the wiring as the CB will not work the cruse control and the electric fans in the radiator area All need to be ..fixed as they all don't work! Yes...They did...
I got one other fly in my soup! Our mail is MIA.. So far two of our boxes are MIA!!! The U.S. Mail says thats what you get for using Mail Forwarding and I want to reach thru the phone and grab him by his throat and squeeze...Real hard!!
In the ten years we have had F.M.C.A;We have never had a package come up missing!!! This is not F.M.C.A'S fault!! This is not Christmas time slowdown. We could get a Christmas Card from the friged state of Maine in five days in third class, No less! But Priority is coming from Ohio to Az. And it is 10,plus days and there is no way to track a priority box. And to top this off, My Diabetes Meds and testing supplys were in that box!!! And whatever else came in that week! You don't go to the VA and tell them sorry They never showed up!! They look at you like you crawled out from under a rock!
I should be finished by Thursday or Friday. I hope my computer is done at the same time. I have a few things I can work on while waiting for them to get the work done.
Check in Later so have a good one,

No! It shows the start-up screen for Dell and then Windows XP and the little bar underneath scrolls a study pattern and then my start up screen and then my password and then my normal screen. I am thinking that the cd rom with that XP Pro on it was a bad copy! I don't have a disc of the OS software. Computer was reconditioned and they don't give you a OS disc! PITA!!!!!
Hope to have it back Thursday!!

It has been a busy day! Got here about 8 am and they started the new curtains up front first. Thats done! The back curtains are next but they had problems with the installation of the awning. It is almost finished on the outside but they have to run the rest of the wiring to do and the wiring for the cab area to get everything working again. They need to finish the back curtain. All that done I will be able to go camping in January! I got a couple of things to do while here myself. But I can do it anytime tomorrow as they have a busy scudule tomorrow and that will get them to finish this work on Thursday.
Thats about all for now,I have pictures but am not looking for the cables needed to download the pictures into this computer. I will get them maybe tomorrow. Will check in later,

Hi, Pictures are in and will add as I get them! Lost a camera for awhile and didn't get any pictures of the new clearance lights but they are done. I have a ground somewhere not doing it's job! Left Headlight is dim. Am going to try and find the bad connection tomorrow as things were crazy around here.
One thing that was special is they had a Christmas Party and we got invited to join in! They had Pork Ribs! And Chicken and shredded beef and Baked beans and cole slaw and Corn on the cob....MMMMMnmmm Good!!! They think they should be able to get her done tomorrow! If not Friday for sure as they are closed Saturday to Wednesday morning for Christmas sooo...After that done we have a set of levelers to weld and a battery box to weld and we should be ready for the highway!! Have a good one, Capt.Dan!
