Modern Conveniences

Good morning. Today I get to use a modern convenience that has been very missed over the last couple months. I get to do dishes without heating water in a tea kettle, turn on a faucet to wash my hands with nice warn water and best of all I get to take a shower in my own motorhome. No more trekking off with a bag of toiletries, towel and clean clothes to shower in a public restroom. I do have to say that most of the public shower houses have been nice and clean, but it is so much nicer to be able to stay in my nice comfy home to get ready for the day.

I give much thanks to our good friend Steve for all his tenacity and hard work in locating and fixing the problem with the hot water tank. It seems, no matter what your problem, it is never an easy one to figure out or locate. And, when you do know where to look and what to do that still doesn’t make it any easier to fix.  He spent all day yesterday and most of Monday working on it.

We ended up needing to replace only a $7.52 piece of plumbing connector (a thing-a-ma-jig). The problem was rust/clog up inside that had to be drained/blown out. Lesson learned; always use a filter when filling your water tank. Even if you do not use your water for drinking. Yes, we have a couple of filters and we do use them, but we have not replaced them as often as we probably should have. We did just buy a new filter, so we will be more conscientious from now on about replacing it sooner. Again, thank you Steve.

Loving our lifestyle.

Until next time,

Kathryn
