We bought two awning pull down straps, and tried to get an estimate for a 15ft electric awning. I told them I had a 22 ft, they told me they don't make them that big. I said I wanted a 15-18 ft. They told me I had to measure exactly, they couldn't give me a price unless I knew. Guess who is not going to get my business.

Actually that was yesterday, today we put in the awning strap, cleaned the front end of the RV with Aerowash, cleaned all the wheels, and put on the tire covers.

Wow, did you send it to the Smithsonian? LOL

Sad to say, I remember those days.

I pulled out all five fluorescent fixtures today. I'm going to convert them to LED over the weekend.

Bought a new onboard flow restricter was leaking at second fitting. Also a new water hose was leaking in the fitting under that too. I may have finally found my leaks. Had one under the icemaker, was just loose, I guess from years of rattling around. Flow restrict was all rusted in side and screen clogged, didn't even know it had one. Water pressure is now way better, but I thought more was wrong and paid dearly for that. I couldn't put my finger on it until I decided to tighten these and got it spraying water. I'm pretty sure that was the source of water seeping under my mats in the bays, I sure hope so.

Maybe a little bit of melting going on out there. I plan on taking the other 1/2 of the snow off the rest of the MH today. Shooting for 40 Tuesday- Wednesday so I want to get as much off as possible. I don't like the though of Frost/thaw everyday.
JM,
