What a weekend...so far!

I left work early Friday for a family event that was canceled so, I worked on the RV. Seems the Florida owners had exhaust work done at wacky world. The tail pipes were held in place with aluminum muffler tape and bailing wire. I installed some real clamps and secured them with proper hangers. Done.

Saturday, we joined the Good Sam Club and purchased some of the items off our "list".

I replaced the awning roller on the door, made a new limit strap for the drivers door, added another grab handle so I can get in the drivers door, replaced a broken cup holder, replaced two cabinet door struts, found the short legs to go under the dinette table to convert it into a bed. I just had to relocate the under table mounts so it would fit back in the opening and sit on the legs. Purchased the 4 inch straight and 135 degree valve stem extensions so I can mount the braided hose stem extensions I got two weeks ago. I guess I'll have to remove the outer rear wheels to install these.

We then tested a cleaner we purchased two weeks ago, I can't remember the name, another orange based cleaner, anyway, it worked super! The passenger side of the coach looks new! We'll wash the rest tomorrow. Just a few things to finish tomorrow, we may be going to Georgia to the Pirate fest on Tybee Island! Going to have the Coach packed with Pirates!

I'll post pictures!

Post some pictures. It's never ending on any Rv, we seem to look for things to correct or clean. Have fun on you trip to Georgia. Safe trouble free miles.

We spent a month on the Georgia coast this past spring. We went up to Savannah and through Fort Pulaski. What, however, is Pirate fest?

A Pirate Fest or Festival is a large gathering of those of us that do living history and re enacting as period Pirates. We use real functioning weapons, swords and cannons. We work with schools, museums and maritime organisations to preserve the history of the age of sail.

The Fest at Tybee Island, is a great street party with a Pirate theme. There is music and food and a good time to be had by all.

Sunday went down hill.

I must have jinxed it with my happy post for Friday and Saturday.

Had I known what I was in for, I would have slept in and watched TV all day...

That sounds like mine was.

Except they went the extra mile. They used copper water pipe to reroute the existing genset exhaust from where it stuck out 6" past the curb side rear of the coach bodywork into a U-turn and back under the coach and across to the drivers side. But it was at least securely fastened there with plumbing strapping and self-tapping screws back into the frame.
