Gettin' to the nitty-gritty.....

Second Saturday (aka second day) of working on the camper. It is so stinkin' hot in Texas!! So when you just have a fan hooked up for circulating air, you just gotta know you're gonna do some serious, dripping, excessive sweating!! We worked for about 6 hours on the camper.....Jack checking out duct work, holding tank, water lines; me cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.

concluding my Texas trip

New Hope

I just purchased an 82 Pace Arrow and was excited to finally have my first RV. I quickly became discoureged when I took it in to have an exhaust leak fixed and after 2 shops and $6000 I still have an exhaust leak. I figured I would get it fixed later and afterall I now have new brakes radiator batery tires belts hoses and fluids.
