This trips latest saga

While in hat creek i noticed that the lci correct track cam, the one that broke, was half way out of the ears. Took a few hours and we were on our way.Yesterday the screen door latch, plastic broke. No biggie, replaced with a metal latch. The dimplex fireplace now wont shut off!. The flames go out but the heater continues to run. Pulled fireplace out and unplugged it.On my way to the hardware store to find a screw for the fan blades. Looking for 3rd set of tires now and some place to align the axles.. Looking for shower glass door handle fix.. A great time we are having!!

Ahhhh the RV experience LOL
Never a dull moment. I had to install the glass in the door because it had slid down. There have been many repairs on my RV since I have owned it.
By the time you finish it will be better than new. LOL

i can help on a couple of things.


tires: just get G614s...end that issue for 4-6 years. Bud's in Goshen, IN area for alignment.



as for shower door handle (the ones that go around the end of the glass). if like my, use superglue.


there you go...2 things fixed.

It's because of stuff like this that I've added "Master RV Technician" at the top of my resume.

LOL for sure. If I owned a repair shop, I wouldn't hire anyone as a mechanic unless they owned a new trailer for at least three years.
