Tuesday Thoughts.

We were up as usual early and then Donna headed to the truck company.

Got a call later in the morning from the RV repair place and Don asked if I could bring it out and drop it off tomorrow at 11:00AM to start the repairs. I am so glad that this is starting now and maybe before Spring we will have it back and in like new condition. I am going to have him install the 4 inch wide eternabond tape on the front and rear cap seals. I guess I am just paranoid about water leaks now , but this is one of the points where a lot of leaks occur. I figure it will be in a heated garage and he can clean the seal area recaulk any thing that needs it and then apply the tape. should be a pretty permanent seal after that. Went out today and took both the recliners out and put hem in the garage, so he would have the whole floor area clear to work on. Then I hitched it up and I will head it facing out in the morning. It was cold enough that my hands were getting numb after hitching up.

Not much going on today it was sunny and 38 degrees and then it clouded up this afternoon. Nicole has cheering today so she will be late getting home.

Rigg’s is out having a run in the back, must have seen a cat in the yard.

That’s about it here at the Ranch. Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Glad to see you are getting those repairs done. You will be all set to go on a spring trip. Who knows maybe next year it will be the Sands when it gets to cold at the ranch.

  2. glad to see you got the repair call...theres nothing like eternabond...we had an older rig and had a couple of minor leak problems..that stuff worked like magic...just be sure you never want to take it off of there tho..lol good luck...

  3. Glad you are getting the 5er all fixed up. They will get it done fairly quickly is my guess, because they can't make any money if they fool around with it.

    Maybe you can get in a Winter trip yet! That would be fun.....


  4. Great news on the repair job. I agree with the others on Eternabond. I used it on our old rig and never had any leaks at all.

  5. Sooooo good to have your rig getting pampered and repaired and looked after. Are you allowed to go visit it when it's in the RV Hospital???
