For some reason I couldn't sleep at all last night. So many things running through my head and when I got up, nothing got done thinking about it.
Going to be a beautiful day. I had heard it was going to become windy later in the morning, but never did. No wind to speak of all day. I tried to ignore fixing the water leak by eating my ten Ritz crackers very slowly, but it didn't help. Just got warmer outside while I dawdled.
Finally, at 11 o'clock decided to go out and see what the problem was and if I could fix it with my limited abilities. Yesterday, I had gone into town and bought tape and some kind of plumbers dough.
What had happened was on my last move I put a water jug in the bathroom sink and I guess as I was bouncing along, the jug hit the faucet knob and turned on the water.
Learned something too. Don't leave your water pump on when traveling! Anyways, luckily I did not have the sink plugged or it would have been a catastrophe. All my wood floors would now be warped.
I had a full tank of fresh water and that pumped into the grey tank till the pressure loosened up the tape from my last attempt at fixing the leak. The water then went into the bay and onto the pavement. Fortunately, the grey tank was practically empty before this.
I tore off the old tape, put gobs of the plumber's dough around the leaking area and kneaded it in real good. Then I took that waterproof tape they advertise on TV that will hold two pieces of a boat together as it speeds across the water.
Then Yuma and I took it to the Pit Stop and for $4 we filled it up and to my surprise and happiness, no more leak. Hopefully it holds up for the new owners. Probably be asked to have the pipe replaced during inspection. Oh well! I need water now!
After returning, I started cleaning. I can't pay someone to clean it with it looking so dusty and dirty can I? If anyone knows a good consignment company here or in Phoenix or Yuma, let me know.
I've got about a week to get this thing ready to my satisfaction and then my attention will turn to my next love, the White Lion.
One picture today and tomorrow will be another day similar to today. Not going to think on my dilemma until the White Lion is in my possession sitting next to Miss Adventure.
Time for a little dinner and bed. Not used to this fixing and cleaning thing. See you later.
