Reparis Complete in the Little RV - Sort of

I know you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting for yet another update on our repairs.  After three nights in the motel, we got the call around noon yesterday that the Little RV was all buttoned up and ready to go.  We were surprised because just the previous evening we had been told we would be need to stay the weekend and it looked like they would finish up on Monday afternoon. 

We packed our things and headed over to the shop to settle the bill and move back in.  To make a long story short, the new valves were installed and are functioning correctly, the tank level gauges are said to be working properly, the light the shop broke on our last visit has been replaced but they ordered another one because when you turn the lights on, one globe looks yellow and the other looks white.  I'm not seeing much of a difference in the color.  The light fixtures for over the kitchen island were not the correct ones and have to be returned for yet another set.  The trim that was sent to fix the crown over the refrigerator was the wrong type so it has to go back as well.  They tired to fix the old molding but it looks pretty bad so they have to order that again. 

Fortunately the things that didn't get fixed are mostly cosmetic and can wait.  I don't expect the parts to arrive before the end of the year and I don't see us waiting around for  and trim instead of heading south to warmer weather, do you? 

We moved from Junction City to Troutdale, Oregon today.  We in the same park we spent several weeks in earlier this fall.  We enjoy it here and are glad to be back.  I have to say, it's really windy here and so cold.  The wind is gusting hard enough to push the top of the driver side slide in a bit.  I personally find it a bit creepy when the walls move and I'm not pushing the button.  

Tomorrow we will be spending the day with our daughter and her family.  Camden will turn 5 on Friday and we are going to help his daddy build him a new bed. Mommy and I are going to redecorate his bedroom.  

Monday we head back to Olympia to prepare for Thanksgiving

  1. When it comes to RV repairs, it always takes way longer than it should. Glad you at least have all the important things done (have to have functioning valves for sure) and then you can do what you want and go where you want until they come in.
