Exhaust leaks are serious business , glad yours was just a loose nut !
Hope the place has the right drier , good move bringing the old one.

I've bought those cheapo tools before and just figure the cost as part of the job being done , then if it lasts longer it's a bonus !!

Hope you find an insurance solution , just don't get sick or do anything dangerous till you do . I've only had it for a few years my whole life and not any now till I'm 65 in (21 months) .
When I start to worry I tell myself about all the $ I've saved , It doesn't make me feel any better about not having it but now I can afford some donuts , they always make me feel better !

You and Debbie enjoy that extra time together and remember at our age there never is enough time for the good stuff. Now you can start going to see all those places you've been planning ....... "Asta La Vista Baby".

Rail
Glad to hear Jira's auntie is better !

Gordon
Any news on the wave ?

Lynne
Just do what they do out west , let the grass die and plant rocks !

Frank
I'm juggling trying to care for mom and trying to find a safe place to park the rig , no room here and every time I find a place to put it somebody gets in my face about moving it somewhere else.
"People that live in a vehicle aren't people , they're just trouble ! Move somewhere else"

I'm getting to the point I'm not sure it will be there at the end of the day when I head back to sleep at night.

Mom want's me to just leave her on her own and go,,,,I don't think so..

Good Afternoon Everyone;
Rail - what great photos. Bring the table with you for the Meet and Greet. Everyone will be able to sit at it together!

Grand Daughter came over and worked the stuffin's out of me. We replanted a bunch of cedar trees, watered the trees we planted last week and worked on polishing the coach. She is a quick learner and the coach is looking really shiny.

Microwave will be repaired. Inverter gone and a couple switches. Picking it up later this afternoon.

GD has left so I am going to have a quick nap.

Good morning or I should say afternoon. Up at 4 am today. Even for me that's early. Was grey, cold and wet this morning but has since turned into a beautiful day. Really want to take a nap also oit of the norm for me. My internal clock is FUBAR.

Working on Maggie's outdoor systems. Basement entertainment/kitchen. Rather be on the patio than trappedal inside.

Better get back to work before I change my mind and head for bed. Hehe

Hi!

Got the drier out, it was harder than I thought. One air line is frozen,,, (the brass coupling is froze to the line, when I turned the coupling the line twisted)

Ended up dropping the drier onto a milk crate, then rotating it as I turned the fitting off. Have the fitting soaking in transmission fluid now, hopeful it will free up before Tuesday when the new drier shows up.

Yesterday I bought this little unit at Walmart....

Carrand 94000AS Autospa 120v 6" Polisher - Walmart.com

I'm using a cleaner wax, Mcguires, so for the cleaning part to occur you have to rub it in. This little bugger does that really well. It is not a high speed buffer, no fear of paint damage. Works great, did a full side of the coach with it, very happy.

I am not using it for wax removal, doing that by hand, cause it is easy enough.

Popeye,
Thats too bad that you can't find a safe place to stay without being hassled. I agree with the not leaving Mom alone, I let Dad alone in Tn. because his girl friend and the church people will keep watch over him, but here in Fl. it is up to Rita and I. He is stubborn on is very independent, but I wouldn't feel right leaving him on his own.
Jay,
You just go with what your body tells you. Glad that you are working on Maggie.
Lloyd,
If you are worried about Debbie's insurance, I had to buy my own and I had a $5000 deductible, with 100% including prescriptions above that for under $400/month.
Have a great evening all,
Frank

evening guys,
Well the power of all the prayer's paid off surgery went fine. They gave be 2 nerve blockers behind the knee cap. I was out before we left the pre-op room. Surgery was about 3 hours. I awoke in a privet room (I liked that). I am on bed rest
I am one that can't stay put so its been a challenge.
I have 4 Doctors and they came around this afternoon and I was sure hoping to get out of here but nope. They only took the big toe and part of the ball under said toe. They sent it to be tested and it came back that there are 4 different germs and they will need to find out a anti-biotic that will work for the remaining toes. I might be here till Monday or until they get results. There's is a drain tube and bag. So far today they have emptied it 4 times. Tomorrow I get to see the job he did as it will be time to change the dressing. They have me on some good pain meds and if it gets to bad they will give me a pain med by IV.
I still have a main line in and they are giving me antibiotic's that way.
Lloyd, Mothers sells a paste wax in a can that your applicator will fit in. Are you using a paste of liquid wax? I have one that size also but a Wen brand. Makes it a lot easier to apply. If you plan on buying a big buffer get one that you can control the speed so you don't burn the paint.
I'm with Gordon since Deb is now retired come on down too Yuma. It sure is nice there.

rail,
glad the Mother-in-law is doing better.

Steve,
sounds like your improving.
Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes everyone.
Those on the road be safe.
Tim

Evening all. Tim, great news so far. Hoping they can figure out what the infections are and come up with antibiotics that will fix it for good.

Leaving Glen Elder SP, KS tomorrow morning. Spending a couple of nights in Dodge City, KS. I might be looking for a gun fight!

Later

Tim - great news on only one toe, even if it is the big one. With a bit of luck I a sure they will find the right drug combination. So glad things went good for you.

Lloyd - Janet and I generally get there early October and stay until the end of March. We may be a bit later this year as there are some plans to head to Gaffney to the Freightliner Custom Chassis factory for a corner weighing and ride height adjustment. Jury is out right now as our current weights are really good according to the last scale I was on. If we go that way could be a week or two later.

Will PM you details later.

Good Morning,

Tim, glad things went well and glad they are keeping you to get this taken care of. Jerry and I had a nice trip. The CG was really dusty so I now have a dirty rig and just glad I did not wash it before going. Will get it done eventually.

Rail, you ever wonder why some people make the things they do? Like the biggest ball of yarn here in the US, why? Novelty I guess. The table would be a nice addition to "Meet & Greet" but I don't know how you'd pack it.

Frank, I want the name of the insurance CO. That is a much better cost then I am being quoted for when I retire. At that cost I may hold off collecting SS for another year.

Keep safe everyone and have a nice day. Lynne
