This will be shorter than usual, I expect, but I wanted to let everyone know what has happened this week. Back in December we discovered we had a leak somewhere under the shower.............but we couldn't find a cause for the water that ran out into the hallway, so we called out an RV service guy. He did all he could but he couldn't find a cause either. He tightened every connection, making sure not to over-tighten and risk cracking anything. It seemed like the problem was solved..............but while we were out in Palm Desert we had another problem: I tried to turn on the hot water one morning for my shower, but the knob turned without any water coming out. Jim discovered the handle was stripped, so for that one day he used a needle nose pliers to turn the water on and off. Then we went to a local RV supplier to replace the faucet unit. He had to order it, so we had to wait from Friday until Monday to get the new one, which meant using the pliers for a few days. On Monday Jim replaced the faucet, and we thought all was well, but that was again, sadly not true. This Monday (two days ago) we found water running out into the hall from under the shower after we used it. We called another repair guy, since the guy we called back in December could not find the problem. He arrived late Monday evening, and crawled around looking for the leak. He finally found it under the front, left corner of the shower. It was late, and he didn't have what he needed, so he had to leave it and returned today to fix the problem. He was here less than an hour and has removed the edging strip that had probably caused the leak, and sealed the entire inside and underside of the shower. His name is Brad Miller, and he and his son work under the name of Miller's RV Service. His rates were reasonable, and we hope the leak will finally be a thing of the past. YAY!!!!!
Now, for a short change of topic, I was rather amused by what we saw here today. Jim went out to go get our daily paper and spotted this right across the street from where we are.
We think the black and white bird might be a wild turkey. As you can see below, he seems friendly with the geese, and he doesn't seem to be afraid of the campers either!
I was informed that the bird I posted a picture of in my last blog was a black headed night heron. I looked him up in the bird book we have, and that is definitely what he was. Thank you Tony! That's it for tonight. Have a grand day and stay warm and well. Bye for now to all.
