        Sunday is Mother's Day and wish could go visit my ma, but she is 4 hours away and the way she is right now would probably not even know who I was. Saw here a couple weeks ago and she is doing fine in a good facility that takes good care of her. Ma "Happy Mother's Day" !
My Ma couple years ago
     And remembering Suzie's mom who passed away this spring, wish we could see her as well. We both have great memories of our mom's from all the years gone by,
Suzie's mom last Summer
        Pretty mild last night, no heat on and windows open a bit was wonderful. Up early and got to enjoy a wonderful sunrise out our living room window.

 And of course a wonderful walkabout in the fresh morning air. Got to thinking overnight about our water leak and really do not want to remove our shower to check it out (monumental task !) So more more things to check today. Got Suzie have a  shower while I checked under for water leaks. Eventually water was there but the drain pipes were dry hmm.... but some water under the shower. Next I emptied our pantry on the kitchen removed and access panel and got her to turn on the shower. When the shower is running there is a small drip from both the hot and cold water lines. But only when the taps are on ? 
          I had replaced our shower taps back in November 2014 while in Willis Texas that posting is HERE.  And at the time saw no water leaks. But I guess it has been a very slow leak over time and has shown up in our bedroom carpet. Gotta remember we are driving our RV down the road  almost like moving your house down the road during an Earthquake. I checked everyplace I could and could not figure it out. But last night in a dream or whatever thoughts came to me. Check more stuff.
         Ok now removed the new shower taps, and reinstalled. so far all looks good, keep or fingers crossed and hope this resolves our water leak.
      This took about 4 hours of the day, more than enough fooling around here. Another walkabout, chat with a few people and enjoy our e-readers outside but getting kinda cool with the overcast skies and chilly north wind.
      Then time to whip up supper. BBQ pork ribs on our Weber Q. Simmered on low for a couple hours wrapped in sauerkraut  then on the grill mat to caramelized with a tasty BBQ sauce, few spices and some brown sugar.  Just the way we like them fall off the bone tender with a tasty sticky garlicky sauce. For the recipe click HERE or my recipe blog on the top right sidebar. The ribs were awesome by the way.
        No pics right now, my new operating system is still updating and I am ready to call it a night.
        Thanks for stopping by though, nice to hear from you again.

  3. Has you rig been exposed to frost w. possible freeze-up of the water lines? That could have caused your connectins to start leaking.

    1. We like to stock up on ribs when they are on sale, to expensive for us otherwise.
      Yep water leaks can be frustrating.

  5. Nothing worse than chasing a water leak in an RV, there sure isn't too many places where you can get a good view or even your hands in to fix things. Hope you got to the bottom of the leak once and for all!

  6. I have a leak "{somewhere" around the water pump. Thanks for the reminder, I will have to clear the area out, dry it and watch while Norma tries to get it to leak by using the pump and open taps.
