Do you ever wonder why you do the things you do, especially when things go wrong? Took a trip to Louisville this weekend. In fact, I sit here in the RV writing this on a Saturday evening. The trip was twofold; one reason to visit the Louisville Slugger factory because I’m interested on how they make bats. The second was to visit a friends horse farm. They were interested in us working the farm come next spring, helping with the mowing and the animals. While there we had some down time and decided to exchange the monstrosity of a TV directly over the cockpit and replace it with a sleek new Sony Bravia.
Not such a good idea. The Sony was too large for the opening and the brackets to mount it were a bit too short. And with not enough tools and saws to do this job we now have a cavity large enough to hide dead bodies. And have you ever seen the myriad of wires and cables behind your main TV. I think I ‘ll leave this job to an expert and allow Jim at Jones RV to do this upon the return back home. We decided to leave a bit early and return home. Growing weary somewhere between Cincinnati and Columbus we pulled off of Interstate 71 and found Olive Garden Campground. Forty-two dollars was a hefty price to pay given the lack of facilities here but what are you going to do when you’re tired.
As things would progress later, I thought I would have been far better off in a rest area for free considering nothing worked anyway. Pull into site #49 and level up. Hook up the EWS and get ready to hunker down for the evening. Put the slideouts in extension mode and relax. OH NO!! Neither front slideout activates. Checking the rear, we find that one doesn’t extend either. Check all major fuses. Now go outside to the other panels and check those fuses. Nothing blown there either. So here we sit. No TV, no slideouts, climbing over the rear bed to get to the bathroom as that slide doesn’t work either. And here it is Saturday night, international date night, and the misses is sleeping again at 9pm. You just wonder sometimes why you do this sort of thing. �
