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 travel day

Today we left Ontario, CA and made our way up the coast to Santa Barbara.  It was a better drive than I expected.  The traffic was not bad at all.  There was only a short time I was down to 35 and the rest was 50 to 65.  After backing in to our site here at the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge I looked down to lower the jacks and saw no life in the panel.  It was completely dead.  That also means the slides will not work.  Not Good!  After not finding the correct fuse I called the Motorhome manufacturer to ask where the fuse was and they couldn’t tell me.  There only comment was just check all the fuses until you find a bad one.   It took me about 15 minutes to find the blow fuse and all was well again.  The only question now is Why did the fuse blow?  I have been through all the schematics and am more puzzled that before.  Things that were not supposed to be working with that fuse blown were.  I guess I will deal with it if it happens again.
Anyway, we are only here for one night again then our trek north continues.  I called ahead to see if there was a space available for tomorrow and they said there were about 4 spots open right now.  Hopefully there will be one for us tomorrow.  There are alternatives if not.
