This is so CRAZY. Murphy's Law is driving me crazy. First, the septic, second no AC and now the hot water heater is not working. NO I will not ask what is next...LOL

Well, just another thing to figure out. I have to wait till dark to check the electronic spark. I actually think it is in the regulator. This unit, I believe is the original unit. I will let you know what I find. Wish Me luck.

AC Problems

BEWARE OF THE RAKING OVER THE COALS. If you are needing work done on your rig, please shop around as I did today.

Although he could sell me a new unit for 600 plus 200 install. The very next call I made can get the parts and labor for 200.  The second business I called will give a free est on site. If the prices are like the fan…

Well we managed the winter with electric heaters. Now it is summer. Highs have been in the 90's. Now the AC systems do not work. I do have to order new motors for the systems. Today the septic line broke. Had to replace the entire system. However, I know not to ask what is next.

1985 Tiffen Allergo

We finally too'k the step!! We now own an 85 Allergo. She is all original. We have had our share of water leaks, electrical problems and worst of all. trying to get rid of things we don't need from the house. I think this is the hardest part due to the things we have had for so many years and now we have no room for it.

We spent our first night last night. It truly different than living in the house. We are very happy though. We are now part of the RV community.

I do wish if…
