       It was mild again over night but did hear some wind blowing (even without my hearing aides). 55F at 4:30 this morning so got some computing and coffees take care of. Then we secured the coach to head to the dump station at 7:30am. Busier than other days at this time, there was 6 rigs ahead of us. We quickly dumped our sewage, topped up our fresh water tank then back home and setup by 8:30. We good for 10 days now.

      I pulled ahead  to fill out water and there was 12 rigs behind us this is 7:45 am.

          Hey thats good so with our tow bar in the trunk of the car at 8:30 am I whipped into the RV show to the Roadmaster service truck. He took my tow back to the repair guys, and it was all checked out cleaned, new bushings and lubricated. (I clean and lube it every couple of weeks. He looks at it and said was getting old about 10 years (actually 13 years) and suggested we buy a new one. How much? $ 1.150.00 but can sell it to me for $800.00 (now that is a good deal ! The guy that serviced it said it was still in excellent shape though, lol...  Returned to the trunk for me and was back home by 9:15.  It was nice to get these chores done early in the day so the rest of it just puttering around.
the line up is getting longer
people dropping off their Roadmaster tow bars
       The technician had it apart , cleaned lubed, new bushings and back together. Nice that Road master does this service for FREE, Blue Ox charges for the same service. Sure glad we bought the Road master tow bar.
like new again
a bunch of jeeps ready for a desert drive
all installed and ready to tow again
         Though nice and sunny it was very windy from the west with gusts to 25 mph or so and tomorrow looks to be windy again. Heck at least it is sunny and much warmer than back home where they are having extremely cold weather.
         By 11 am the winds had died down a bit and  bright sunny skies temp at 60F this is wonderful. I reinstalled the tow bar and we enjoyed out light lunch (meat loaf sandwich for Suzie).
        I took a drive about out to the highway and noticed the traffic is stop and got heading into Quartzsite, about 3 miles or so into Quartzsite and as far south as I can see. Glad we got our stuff done in the early morning.
north into Q
south towards Yuma lotsa traffic
here is a nice rig with a double decker trailer
       Now set up in the sun our coach is blocking the wind just a breeze underneath so I just hang a tarp there and block the wind perfectly
our wind break with the tarp
       Now I can put my shorts on and cut my beard and hair with Suzie helping with the final trim.
63 F and much warmer in the sun
