October 29th, Monday – One Project Done; Electrical Tomorrow; Awnings Tomorrow, I Hope!

This morning was a much more pleasant one with temperatures in the mid 60’s.  That’s the kind of weather we like, cool and comfortable and nice for sleeping.  Weather report for the rest of the week is more of the same.  No complaints from us.

We had an easy morning.  Great breakfast, egg sandwich with ham on an English Muffin.  Add to that a glass of V-8 and a couple of cups of coffee and the day was off to a

great start.  While we ate breakfast we finished up our game of Mexican Train, and wonder of wonders I won the game!

Breakfast finished and our game over it was time to head out to Walmart for  grocery shopping and to pick up a new sewer hose.  I was lucky, I hooked up before we left Alliance Coach and just as I was about to pull the handle on the black tank the hose

separated from the coupling.  Whew, that was all too close to a major catastrophe!  Thankfully I always keep a spare hose with me so I pulled it out and completed the nasty successfully with no spills.  Now I’m back to having an extra on board.

On the way home from Walmart I stopped and picked up the bulb I needed for the brake light.  Simple enough to get the bulb in but then came the process of putting the lens back in place.  That was a bit more challenging.  However, with Barbara’s help it was quickly back in place and all is well again.

I next took a look at what I needed to do to install the awnings over the slide windows. I measured, measured again, made a few adjustments and I believe it should be an easy install.  Tomorrow, hopefully, if all goes well with the other project in the morning.

The other project tomorrow will be trying to noodle out and fix what is going on with our coach batteries and the charging issue.  The converter?  The charge controller?  Or?  We’ll know before the day is over tomorrow.  Stay tuned and I’ll let you know.

So that was our day On the Road of Retirement.  It felt good to get out and about just traveling along, hand in hand, singing our song.  We have a few more places we’ll be going to over the course of the next week or so.  Provided we stay here.  Right now we’re having issues.  We lose water pressure at least two or three times a day.  The same with the electric.   In so many words, it’s a real pain in the butt.

Time to say goodnight but before I go a thought for each of us to ponder and think upon:

As always,  if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God.  After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.

Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

  1. Thankful you avoided a bad RV movie scene with your black water hose. Yikes!!! Ugh!!! Hope your battery situation is an easy fix. We had to get 2 engine batteries while in Kentucky. Just as you said in a past blog, life in an RV is never dull. Enjoy!!
