Our New House

It was brought to my attention that we haven’t updated our Blog since 2013. Since we have become stagnant and haven’t really traveled for a while I didn’t have much of interest to post. Not that our life isn’t interesting, there just isn’t much RV Travel going on.

Well recently we have turned another page in our lives. We decided since we like our lifestyle so much that buying a house wasn’t in our plans. However we have pretty much outgrown the RV so…

We bought a Park Model home in the same resort where we have lived for the last 11 years in the motor home. If you are not familiar with a Park Model, it is a small 400 square foot manufactured home. Ours however is a bit more than a simple park model. First off ours is set in the ground so it is ground level, then a 200 square foot addition was added making it 600 square foot overall and the whole thing is stuccoed and the roof is tiled. There is also a 117 square foot building on the property, which serves as a laundry room and a shop. This building is attached to the house by a covered patio with outdoor kitchen. Along with the real residential appliances they topped it off with an air conditioner that can turn the house into a meat locker in the 120-degree Arizona summers. You can see more photos by clicking on the link in the left column.

I have added a link to the photos of our house HERE.

So, although we are keeping the motor home, it looks like we are not Fulltimers anymore.

Best wishes to all our readers and I hope your travels are as enjoyable as ours.

I will leave the Blog up because I know others enjoy reading about our travels.

Another repair

Our Convection/Microwave oven has been giving us fits for a couple of years now. The convection fan has been on the outs and I have been able to revive it through out the years. One reason I have been procrastinating is because I could see no way to get to the fan to replace it. I have scoured the Internet with no help. I even emailed GE and asked how to go about this. Of course they didn’t respond. Well I decided I need to do something so I ordered the part. $44.00 later I had the part in hand. Today I got the nerve to tackle the job. I got part way through and gave up and put everything back together. After pondering over it I couldn’t let this thing get me so I tore into it again.

It took dismantling 11 assemblies and removing a number of panels to finally access the fan.

I carefully noted all the screws and where they go for reassembly. Well it looks like all went well.

The new fan is in and the oven is back together and mounted in its place. Susan even cooked dinner in it tonight and all came out well.

    So are you hooked on off roading now? We are so jealous. Wish we were there to join you. I miss riding my quad in the desert, and you know both Kevin's miss riding their bikes.
    Looks like you had a blast. Take care.
