Well this is not looking good. Dropped of MH yesterday, early this morning I get a call needing the combination to the safe!!!

Guess they want to see how much is in there before they proceed. Boy are they going to be disappointed. They are suspecting the connection to back of water heater. Mary's now worried about here shoes in the closet, you know 3 weeks at the lake require 6-7 pairs of shoes!

dave I'm so glad I read all of your post. When you said you didn't trust that red tape so you went and bought a new one, knowing you to be a Ford man I assumed you was buying a new roll of tape to fix it. But realized you just got a insulating cover to cover up the problem!

Shipshewana GC Update

We will have the use of the public pavilion. The private pavilion will be FREE if we have 15 coaches or more.

The Group is booked in a close set of sites.
Please call Tammy (260-768-4669‬) and determine if your site is the same or changed. She needs to ID you by name.

Tim, they have promised to assign you a site without water, if you sign up!!!!

For those of us staying 7 nights or more, there’s a 50% discount for the 7th night.

Wayne, you’re being moved to site 250, to make sure you can be properly observed by the security team. (JK)

Happy Trails!!

Oh rats! Yep, I'll bet it was rats/mice. My major leak was the washing machine hose. Water ran everywhere. Fixed now, and I now keep the electric cord off the ground while in storage. Also have "kill" bait in bays and traps inside MH. So far, so good, knock on wood.

The only times have had “beastie ala rodentia” in my Monaco has always been when my slinky is left hooked up. I have now, for years, put the slinky away between sewer feedings.
My underside must be sealed pretty good!
(And now I’ve probly jinxed myself)

Our rodent problem was when our rv was only 6 months old, those suckers chewed through the wiring harness or sumptin like that, all I remember is being pissed.. and freightliner costing a lot to fix it....

Shop called today said it was hot water heater. It sprayed the water inside and ran half the length of coach. I had old plastic dish pans in one bay that I loaded with various tools in case Mary needed to fix anything . They were level full of water.

Not sure Kevan but I still worry that I had to let them in my safe!

After that they decided to clean up my batteries and replaced a battery cable!

Luckily I trust these guys, they keep a good eye out for issues that might bite me. They even warned me about Wayne!

is Wayne that well known? I never have found a service center that I felt good about, do most the work myself even when I don't want to. Crain RV in Little Rock came close but their service area was to small.

Just found out the IRV2 does not allow video in the format my camera takes.

So these are two stills I did today at Shoshone Falls just outside of Twin falls.
