We were up and moving around before 9 o'clock this morning. Looked out the window and saw Deb's truck gone. They are on a day of errands in Yuma. I finished my brain games and we started our breakfast routine. I was surprised to see the sun was peeking through the clouds often enough to sit outside and have my breakfast.

About noon, I decided to see if I could cut a piece off the rubber hose that is blowing the smoke straight down under the engine. With a little effort, I was able to pull it up from where it was routed and I cut a piece off to take with me to a hardware store to get an extension hose, so I can re-route the hose near the exhaust pipe.
At 1 o'clock, Yuma and I headed into Yuma to find a five foot extension hose that I could connect to the small piece I had cut off. I went to Home Depot and had no luck there. Then I went to Tractor Supply and they had the size I wanted, but only sold it in certain lengths which was way more than I needed. Each store gave me ideas of where to go and Tractor Supply was on the money. They directed me to C-A-L Ranch, a "we've got it all" store in Yuma. Sure enough, they had the size I needed and sold it in one foot lengths. Got five feet and then made a quick stop at Walmart and then we were heading home.

It was 3:30, and by this time, it was getting cloudy. Calling for rain tonight and tomorrow. Not much, but the clouds bother me the most because I count on the sun for electricity. Without it, I have to run the generator to keep the batteries charged.
When we got within sight of home, I could see a yellow motorhome parked between me and Deb and Riley. The Stinger "B" had arrived from Quartzsite with Tom and Deb. Now the whole group is back together. After tomorrow, we are expecting high 70s with plenty of sunshine which will be great for activities.
It was now cloudy and fairly cool, so I decided to put off working on the WL until the warm weather is back. I'm anxious to test all the changes I've made, but there is no big hurry. I'll have it done and tested by the end of the week, and that is gootenuff.
We tried to have a Happy Hour, but rain ran us home. Plus, poor Yuma was shivering from the cold with no coat on. Had a nice dinner and will be hitting the sack soon after publishing my blog.
Thanks for stopping by.
After running all over town, it's good you finally found the hose you needed. Hopefully, it's not difficult to put on. I'm sure it will warm up soon for you and your friends. Yuma doesn't like the cold.ReplyDelete
Glad i found what I needed. Won't be hard to do and then a test drive. Today is the worst weathercday we've had, I think. Very windy and cold right out of the north. Definitely, a stay inside day.Delete
Looking forward to the warmth of February too.ReplyDelete
Only about 10 drops of rain here but more expected overnight and maybe tomorrow.
Not muc rain here, but cold and windy today. A stay inside day.Delete
As much as I love being out in the desert, there is something to be said for RV parks ... electricity ... and water since this rig doesn't hold much of anything. I need to practice my water saving skills. By the way, its raining again here.ReplyDelete
It certainly is for you on this cold and windy day with poor Jonathon. He certainly needs electricity today. The rain is gone, but very windy and cold outside.Delete
It’s nice to have everyone together again. It just feels right. Lol.ReplyDelete
We slipped a bit before 8:30, very quietly so we didn’t wake the neighbours!
It is good that we have the luxury of moving in and out but remain close. Now, we just need to get rid of this wind.Delete
