Got a few more repairs done again today and enjoying this wonderful weather too.

Where are we today ?
        What can I say? Just more great weather. I am sure you are tired of hearing about it. but we are not. In the low 80's f today but I have repairs to do. No problem I enjoy puttering around.
       A quick trip to Yuma for a few things and home to begin puttering about. 
these look like water tanks
whadda think Patsy?
        By 9:30 am home and began working on an electrical problem with our coach. AGAIN!   Still have no lights on our towed. Hmmm not good. It appears to be a wiring problem somewhere in our coach that I have not been able to diagnose. So a tip from John the other day I changed my plan of attack.
         I bought a trailer wiring kit $15.00 and hooked it into the coach tail lights. Yahoo our towed now has brake lights and turn signals. Easy Cheap fix and we good to go! Another issue was our rear air conditioner not working at all? Suzie suggested I check the thermostat. Ok, did that and used a contact cleaner. Now it works too! Sure is nice to have Suzie here with her wisdom!
        Took about 5 hours puttering around but was very productive and saved  lot of money. But we do have the time.
         Levelling jack issue, heard back from Jason. The parts are on order and should be here next week. Get that problem resolved as well. Considering our coach is 16 years old we are still lucky to even get the parts. Just takes a while.
          Finally done with stuff, cleaned up and tools away and I can get some afternoon reading done in the shade for a bit.
         Then an easy supper, a couple grilled turkey garlic sausage(from Ontario), fresh asparagus (from Mexico) and a salad mostly from Mexico. It was excellent!
sure did the trick
       Then as we were done another wonderful desert sunset here at Pilot Knob.
     What great day we had and of course wonderful weather. Thanks for stopping in and hope you had an amazing day as well.

  1. Looks like several repairs were easy fixes. That's always a good thing. Hope the levels get fixed easily and not with a huge output of cash. Love the weather!

    1. Like the smaller repairs, those I can handle.
      Don't think it will be too bad for the levellers.
      We will see.

  3. When we had our MH, our towed lost power also. I remember Paul bought some type of trailer wiring kit also and it did the trick. Glad you are in busy again.

  6. I think you're lucky to have an older coach with level jacks. The newer MH's seem to have all adopted cheaper jacks that are very troublesome and prone to frequent failures. I'm thinking 16 years of use before a problem is a good run. Now you'll be ready for the next 16 years!

  10. You keep on making me consider getting an outside grill again. It was a nice way to cook many things.
