Today the mobile RV guy paid a service call to Casa de Cheryl and took a look at the 1985 Dolphin for some RV maintenance. The water in my rig was acting “wacky.” I had a little drip under the sink, the toilet bowl would fill to the brim with water after I turned on the water pump, and no water pressure in the shower.
OK, if you mention the word “mechanical” I automatically go into blank mode…
It seems that even though one doesn’t use the water heater, you STILL need to flush it out at least once a year, and inspect the adode rod (Suburban) in the water heater. Larry, (the RV guy) asked me the last time I had the water heater flushed and inspected.
Uh, how about NEVER!
Note to self: Even though you heat water on the stove and don’t use the water heater, it still needs annual maintenance. Needless to say, the anode rod was basically non-existent and there were deposits of gunk in several spots.
It’s funny what you find out about people…
As my rig was being work on, I found out that my RV repair guy Larry plays saxophone in a band called 24/7. I actually paid $10.00 more for my repair bill since I bought the band’s first CD!
Bitten by the “glamping” bug…
Lately, as I get ready for my summer sojourn I find that I’m into “glamping” my rig. Today, I put in a new shower curtain. Also, to hide an area that I had stapled near the visors in the cab, used a Mexican themed sash. Don’t worry, I won’t go as far as put pom-poms like you see on the “chicken buses” in Mexico… ;-)
I had a thirty year career in education and retired last July. During the span of my career, between dealing with students, parents, and administration I reached my personal capacity for “drama.” I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it here again. My blog is self-hosted and is a personal diary of my experiences and my life.
I feel that I’m basically an open person, but unless you meet me face-to-face you’ll see a “slice of my life” that I reveal to the blog-o-sphere. I think it’s “best” not to call out, point a judgmental finger, or be too “vocal” about one’s personal opinions.
Recently, someone in the blog-o-sphere had a personal dilemma regarding their blog. We are all responsible for the choices we make in our life. I can’t tell you how many times I had a conversation with a child regarding “good and bad” choices. In my opinion, if you sign a contract, you agree to the terms of that contract. It’s then your personal responsibility to adhere to those terms – whether you agree with them or not.
I “do” take issue when I’m “called out” with other bloggers on a blog’s comments, and when I receive “out-of-the-blue” comments on my personal website. Let’s all “play nice” boys and girls and ditch the drama! :-)
