We’ve recently been featured as RV Lifestylers on the RV Like A Girl blog — and just in time to announce that after this 3-week visit that turned into two months, we are ready to roll away from San Antonio once more. The medical issues I alluded to in this post have been resolved to a point that we are confident about traveling again!
Meanwhile, Tim hasn’t been the only one with issues.
The Toad developed a few as well — I know you’re shocked — and we’ve done some repair work on the HVAC and slide sweeps (the black rubber gaskety stuff that keeps the rain out).
The main AC died, and since it’s still damn hot in Texas in the fall, fixing it became a priority. Old guts out…
… new guts in.
Old thermostat off…
… new thermostat on.
I did the wiring myself — and nobody got fried!
Best part is that the new motor is not nearly as loud as the old one, so we no longer feel as though we’re shouting at each other over a jet engine when the AC is running.
We took on water — in the living room — during the last round of heavy rain storms here in San Antonio, and luckily Tim was able to trace the source to failing seals around our slide-outs.
Also luckily, it hasn’t rained much since then! This is still a work in progress, due to having to special order the stuff, and um… messing up the first round.
We expect to depart San Antonio within about a week. On the Planning Table of Possibilities: Big Bend, the Grand Canyon, and winter in Arizona, perhaps with a side trip to Mexico.
