I was just having fun with ya. I get a kick out of folks who run to the dealer for every little thing, even under warranty. I prefer to do all of my own work when I can.

AND- looks like I kissed something last night. I think it was when I pulled off of the road for my potty training son to pee. It was on an entrance ramp and they had metal reflectors. I got close to them getting pulled over and am guessing the slightest bit of tail swing got me.


Been there, done that too. Left Larry Penney Thompson park last May and the tail swing caught their pedestal protective post (pedestals are at the front of the sites ), and kinda creased the rear panel behind the slide. Needles to say, the great people at Prime Time took care of it on our way to the rally.

Replaced the batteries in the tire pressure monitors, getting everything ready for the season.

I finally figured out why my Dish Trav'ler TV would'nt work today. After months of no TV, I'd replaced the defective interface box and TV still wasn't working. The RV service repair shop looked at it, billed me and left me hanging last week. A TV went out in the house this week and as a last effort after the phone tech couldn't fix the TV over the phone, I decided to try an extra HDMI cable lying around from an unused TV. That turned out to be the problem in the house- bad cord!! I went out to my RV with this good cord and magically it was the same problem!!! Finally my TV in RV is working. I learned that the stock cords from Dish are pretty cheap quality. Lesson learned; if all else fails- check the cord. I then purchased a better quality HDMI cord today for the RV.

I think the saying is, "it's always something". At least I can say these were self-inflicted (if that's better?).

Fortunately, it seems to be almost all paint. The corner piece is slightly cracked and might actually have been cracked before.

I have a little bit of touch-up paint, but may call for some more. Then my father-in-law knows a guy who paints cars; I should be able to call him and arrange to get it painted properly.

Oh well, such is life.

I just finished install 2 TVs on the kids bunks. Last 3 times we were out camping it rained the entire time. Now have a tv on each bunk and the can watch antenna, DVDs and from my media box. This should make everyone happy

I'm beginning to think that if it weren't for bad luck, you'd have no luck at all!
