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.

Maintenance day

I spent the day doing more maintenance on the motorhome. I was able to scratch a few more things off my list. Seems like I end up adding items faster than I scratch them off. Today I flushed the water heater and checked the anode. It was surprisingly clean and

the anode did not need replacing. Also today I had to replace another string in one of our day/night shades. I have replaced all the strings at least once in all the shades and some twice. They get a lot of use.

I have enough string to replace all the strings for as long as I own this RV. The other day I did the oil change that came due while on our trip last summer. Since I run synthetic I wasn’t worried that I went a little over my normal 3000 miles. The next item on the list is to fix the water leak at the water heater bypass valve. It is not bad, just a slow drip but is annoying. I wanted to get all this stuff done before we head over to California in a little over a week.
