Life On Wheels & A Miracle

We’ve been living our life on wheels since June 2000.  Although we are on wheels on our home (37 footer) they haven’t moved since February due to medical  stuff…blah, blah, blah.  The camper (25 footer) wheels have moved several times and they will again this week.  I got another sleep thing this Thursday night in Conroe, Tx about 50 miles away.  We will go over to the Thousand Trails Wednesday.  Friday morning after the sleep test thing we will go to Betty’s RV Park in Abbeville, La for a few nights.  Come on down if you ain’t doing nothing.  Then about two weeks after that the big wheels start to roll towards the East.  We will start to head for Maryland for a wedding we want to attend.  

Battery time.  Now I know for sure that I haven’t checked the house batteries in the camper since buying it back in September.  It’s overdue to check them for sure.  Well, I can’t check the water level unless I remove the hold down brackets for them.  If I do that, I might as well take them out and clean and paint what ever.  I removed the batteries from their box.  I had a little of that white junk on the hold down brackets and some more in the bottom of the box.  Clean/paint/protect it all.  Here are some pictures in no particular order.DSC_0001DSC_0002DSC_0003DSC_0004DSC_0008DSC_0005

When I was done the box was sanded and painted and the terminals and what ever got a coat of red protective stuff.  The batteries were out for a couple of hours and were resting at about 12.9 volts which is good.  The water level was fine and none was needed.  That was a surprise meaning usually they need water every few months normally in previous rigs.  Here in a couple of weeks they will go into storage.  I will talk about that then.

How about a wood pecker and lizard out our side RV window….DSC_0010


Oh, Don Del Rosario was a recipient of a miracle.  He was on dialysis every other day and it was permanent.  His body recovered and the doctors are saying it’s a miracle.  Well Don, congrats.  It must have been that Marine Guard Angel standing post over you when you were in that comma.  I didn’t need that Marine at the time so I let you borrow him.  You really needed him and then some.   If that Marine is finished standing his post over you, I would like him back.  I’m still getting into trouble and will need him again to guard us for sure. 

See ya……..
