Aleve Please

Stix n Brix, NC

Welcome to our newest follower, Margie and Roger.  They have a nice Tiffin Phaeton as their condo-on-wheels.  That is a rig that we have on our list as a possible upgrade.

We got Wanda back in the driveway yesterday!  She had been at Gregory Poole for a week to get the brake recall work done.  Three damaged rotors were replaced also.  I decided not to replace the other one after talking with a technician.  It would have cost me $200, but he said that he didn’t think that it would pull to one side much.  If it did, just using the brakes a few times would even it out.  It wasn’t any trouble driving it home.  I’m pleased with their service.  They are quite professional and will definitely return your call.  They work on all MH chassis and specialize in Caterpillar diesel engines.  If you are near Raleigh/Garner and need help, give them a call at 919-755-7050.

This is my week off but we decided that we needed to do things around here more than taking a trip.  Gin put a couple of things on Craigslist last night so it’ll be good for us to be around.  I really wanted to wash and wax the MH this week also since the weather is perfect.  After it warmed up a little this morning, I got the wash bucket out and crawled on the roof.  I’m afraid of heights but have gotten used to doing this.


Wax on…wax off.  (Gin just wanted to get my good side)


I’m using Rejex.  It should last quite a while.  We talked with Ken at the RV-Dreams rally this past April, and he used it on their MH.  It looked real good so we thought that we’d give it a try.  Gin did some things in the garage like fix a taillight and put air in the bike tires.  We had to take a break and take them for a spin through the subdivision.  It’s a bit hilly so the electric motor came in real handy.


Smudge is 13 years old and her hips are starting to bother her, but she spent the day outside as our supervisor.  I think we passed her inspection.  She is dog tired.  :)


I’m pretty tired and sore too.  I took an Aleve with supper.  Thank goodness Gin cooked a good meal.  I can hardly keep my arms up, and I still have the other half to wax later this week.

We plan to join Gin’s parents at the KOA in Wilmington, NC Monday.  We’re just going to spend the night on their couch.  Odie is there to go to tax prep classes and it’ll be nice to spend some time with Judy.  We’ll enjoy a card game later in the evening.

We’ve gotten a couple of responses on the lift chair that is on Craigslist list so it’ll probably sell tomorrow.  Sorry for the long post but I can be chatty at times.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

A clever place for Smudge to rest. What a job washing and waxing the rig is. We have had ours done a few times, and I think it is well worth the money. Thanks for sharing.

Taking care of the rigs are so much work! That is the part of this RVing that is not so much fun, for me anyway.

Oh, thanks a lot. With my work list on our MH already a mile long, you reminded of another "To Do" task...wash the roof! ;c)

Nothing better than giving your MH some TLC, they cost enough so ya' gotta make it last. Will be interested on how much you like the Rejex.

Enjoy Wilmington, seems like the last time I was there, that battleship was still new...
