A Brief Update

I received my final "installation" item this week; a docking kit for my XM Satellite radio.  I installed the radio in the truck and now will be able to take the receiver into the camper and have satellite radio there.  We really like oldies music from the 60's and 70's, plus Blues for me and Elvis radio for Rosie.

My RV guy tells me we should be able to get inside the shop on Thursday, the 1st of March, and get started on all the projects.  I will cut expenses by ripping out the old carpet myself; and being a compliant assistant with the installation of the new carpet.  The RV tech, Tim, will also be installing the solar panels, charge controller and the two inverters.  He will also pack the wheel bearings and fire up the fridge and hot water heater to make sure everything is working like it should.  I also asked him to check the shocks on the camper to see what condition they were in.  I will post pictures of the modifications in my next blog.

We had the first showing on the house this morning and the buyer ( a young fellow) wants to bring his parents back with him this afternoon.  Looks promising, but you never know.

It only takes one buyer, the right one!

I see you have word verification on. Many of the RV bloggers have taken it off and are not leaving comments if it is on.
Rick has doe an excellent post on how to turn it off.
