Not sure if you can see but we are thinking maybe our alternator may be overcharging our batteries and as a result, acid bubbles over. The acid corroded the battery cage and they were on a severe tilt towards the road. So, Bob, our savior, purchased the materials to weld a new battery grate. And yes, he has a welding unit with him. (love this man)
Roger and Bob hooked up our batteries from outside the cage so we always had power and lights. Another bonus! It took a few days due to appt's and other things but finally it was done. Roger painted the steel with
Rustoleum and voila'...the batteries went back in.
I did mention to Roger we need to look at AGM Deep Cycle sealed batteries. For our first try we over watered the babies we now have.
Then, we have another goal before we leave. It's my to do list actually. The batteries and a new refrigerator.
Our Norcold is propane/electric. We run it on electric and if I tell you our ice cream is soup you will understand. Another ugh. The other issue is they catch on fire. There had been a recall and ours had been done but I still worry. It will "die" and as soon as I call the repair guys, it comes back to life. The perfect scenerio is for it to die and we can put it through our warranty. Since it's a high dollar item the insurance company will send someone to check it out. Second opinion so to speak. Yes I think I did mention this in the last post but let me show you what happened the week after to friends of ours.
And it was in storage. The unit is on it's way to the insurance company but the fire Marshall thought it was, yes, the refrigerator. Not sure how but our rv repair person has said watch for the yellow residue. Ammonia leaking. Needless to say I've been a fanatic.
So, my goal, a new refrigerator. Rolling in the dough Sheila? Not at all. I'll be painting non stop working to make enough to do this. CiCi Blue is our full time home. I stayed awake all night trying to think of how we could get our dogs out, how we could get out. I just read of a class C had their frig catch on fire while driving. The woman felt the flames at her back as she struggled with her seat belt and thankfully she was safe. So, think good thoughts and manifest a residential refrigerator for us!!
Something fun!! Roger made me a fun light for over the dining table!
The other evening we watched the PBS program on Yosemite Park. Lola came up to lay with us for a bit and started to watch the program with us. It's hard to see but the second photo shows a coyote! Lola perked right up and started barking at it. Roger and I couldn't stop laughing, which I will say we so needed to do. She's such a goof.
Well that's it for today. It's getting really hot and dry here in Florida which means I'm miserable. But you have lived there for years?? Yes I have. Silly me. Roger loves the heat and can sit outside forever. For me, I melt. I am so looking forward to going out west and have no humidity. (Now watch, I'll complain that there's not enough moisturizer in the world to stop my skin from drying up and becoming leather). Moisturizer....that's on my list too!!
Have a great rest of your weekend...
