Repair Work

We have had an uneventful few days at Charlie’s Service Center at Sunset, UT. There are ten or twelve RV’s still on the lot for repair. A few have moved in or out each day and the shop is closed on the weekends, and it is very quiet here, which is fine with us.

Since we have been in the higher altitudes, Kathi and I have had spells when it seemed harder to breathe, so she looked on Amazon.com and found some 22-ounce oxygen canisters that people use when they need more oxygen, such as when doing heavy exercise. We are not doing heavy exercise, but the oxygen may help anyway. The package should arrive the middle of the week.

Gilberto and Justin are reviewing all our maintenance or repair items to assure they understand the issues and repair requirements, prior to submission to our insurance carrier. It will be nice to have our water pump, propane heater, microwave/convection oven and washer/dryer functioning again. Those are some of the big items, but there are many more. Almost no repairs in three years and living in the motorhome every day, maintenance items continue to grow.

We finally got all our laundry done on Wednesday and went for haircuts and Walmart shopping on Thursday. There are some sites to see around here and hopefully, we will feel like getting out more during the coming week.

Gilberto spent much of the day Friday trying to determine where the electrical wire was broken that is preventing current from getting to the 120-volt electrical outlets in our slideout. We have been using an extension cord for a month or so to supply power to our computers which reside in the slideout area. The electrical lines run through the roof of our basement. Yes, we have a basement, like where buses keep luggage. All the plastic containers were removed from our basement on Friday in search of the broken wire. They have not found it yet, but Gilberto says he now knows where it is not. That seemed to make sense to him.

Most days here have been overcast, so we have not had many good picture opportunities, but Saturday was different. We had bright sunshine all day and we went out to lunch, thinking I would take some pictures, but could not work that into our schedule. I had an Ultimate Feast at Red Lobster and Kathi had a fresh catch salmon for lunch. It was way too much for me to eat and I had leftover shrimp, lobster and crab to eat in the late afternoon.

Sunday is overcast again and the humidity feels high for Utah. My sinuses are giving me some problems, so I got out of bed, had coffee and fell asleep sitting in my chair trying to read. I am feeling a little better now, but the atmosphere is still heavy.

We are looking forward to Monday when there is some activity to watch at the service center. We can see the snow-capped mountains out of our windshield and see traffic moving on I-15 and not much else going on. We will probably get an evaluation from the insurance company this week and the real work can get started.

  1. I like being in places where there are mountains all around with snow on top. It makes for a nice view. I hope the oxygen helps. I'll look forward to hearing about that. I'm sure you are anxious to hear about the insurance. Good Luck.
