I am a worrier. Just comes very naturally to me. I worry about our kids, I worry about the weather, I worry about the state of the world, I worry about my friends, I worry about everybody’s furkids (especially ours), I worry about fires and tornadoes and earthquakes, and accidents. You name it, I probably worry about it. But I’ve learned to control my thoughts quite well and not let them rule my life.
I also do whatever I can to ease those fears. I watch the weather carefully to try and avoid any threats of bad stuff. I check on the kids often to make sure they are okay and everything is going great. We put new tires on the fiver we just bought. I made Jim check the dryer in the kid’s house to be sure lint wasn’t building up which creates a fire hazard. Etc., etc., etc.
We were out at Pierce RV the other day because Jim needed some kind of hose connection for our blue boy tote. While we were there I’m wandering around looking at all the treasures this place holds. Came down the aisle that holds LP gas leak detectors and CO monitors. Yes, we came home with both.
Someplace I read that your LP detector should be changed about every five years. Our fifth wheel is almost 8 years old and I’m sure the LP detector has never been replaced. Another job for Jim.
As for the CO monitor. This is strictly for my peace of mind. Our fifth wheel does not have a built in generator. The generator sits in the back of the pickup. So the probability of CO problems are really small. However, our CO monitor went off when we were using the generator in the motorhome and I just don’t forget those kinds of things. Thanks to my understanding hubby, he will put up the CO monitor just for my peace of mind. Anything to help me not to worry so much.
