A Fair Deal

Apache Junction, AZ   High 78   Low 54

After we got the Bungalow unloaded, Jim took the trailer back to the tire shop. They were really great about everything. (And no Jim doesn’t ever yell. That would be me.)

When they took it all apart they weren’t able to save the axle. It was done for. The service guy looked all over trying to find us an axle and finally found one with all the right parts in Mesa. So new axle, new hubs, new bearings and we also need two new tires. We are very blessed to have made it back down into the valley safely.

He and Jim were able to work a fair deal for both of us and the Bungalow is safely backed into her spot for the winter.

Our neighbors from Canada arrived today. They tangled with a tailgate on a pick up as they were pulling out of the park in Canada and then lost their air conditioner cover during a storm in Washington. Our neighbors at the end of the block had to have their hot water heater replaced this week. There is always something to be fixed or repaired on an RV.

Now that we are back and settled, you won’t be seeing very many blogs from me. I’ll post when something exciting happens or it’s time for an update.

The weather is perfect. The sun is shining. The girls are sunbathing on the warm rocks. Doesn’t get much better. At least for me. Jim will be happy once he gets the boat out on the water. Had a flat tire on the boat trailer and the carburetors need an overhaul but it should be good to go shortly.

Jim’s surgery is scheduled for November 9th so I’ll let you all know how that goes.

  5. Terry says R.V. stands for Repair Vehicle. It does seem that there is always something that needs to be fixed. Glad you're back home and safe.

  10. Glad you are home safely and settled in again. That's always such a good feeling. Can't wait to leave, so happy to be home, right? We are lucky we can do both whenever we want.

    Good thoughts coming your way for Jim's surgery. I hope it goes well and he has a speedy recovery. :)

  15. Yep! It is always something. Our ice maker died a week ago. Now the microwave is making a terrible noise. We're two days out from Tucson, and I'm looking forward to some sun and not driving. I hope Jim's surgery goes well.
