And the very red finish.
Last night after parking we discovered we had no 12 volt power. No lights inside. What works off the plug in power was working fine - everything else not at all. So we sat around in the dark all night. Glad my new nook with a back light was working good. I read until time to go to bed. The brand new batteries were not holding a charge. Lovely. Still trying to figure out some things with the laptop, but hard to do anything with no light.
Weather when we started out this morning was cool but nice. Getting gas at the Pilot before getting on the freeway. This should not be allowed to happen.
In a couple of places it was worse than this. Just hoped no one wrecked in front of us.
Then the sky cleared up but the wind did not stop or let up at all.
286 rough miles. Got parked, while driving to the RV park I called two mobile RV service places. Neither of them called me back. Of course it is a Saturday. So back to the phone searching Tucson for another mobile service. They answered the phone! Alarie Mobile RV Service in Tucson. Owner David Alarie. Remember this name if you ever need service in the Tucson area. He said he would try and rearrange his schedule and would call us back in a half hour. Just after we talked to him it started to pour rain, rained hard off and on for a couple of hours. We haven't seen any substantial rain for over 200 days - and today it decided to pour here in Amado. He did call back and came out within the hour. Was here a little over an hour and a half and fixed the problem. Working outside with the batteries in the rain. Would you believe the mechanics who changed the batteries put the negative cable on a positive post. He said we were luck nothing melted or burned. Just a minute or two after he left we discovered the generator didn't start. So called him. He turned around and came right back. He knows what the problem is and will be back mid week to fix it. Our Knight in Shinning Armor.
It is now only 6 p.m. and both Bill and I are having trouble keeping our eyes open.
I got my phone off safe mode and it seems to be working fine again. But might stop at the Verizon place in Green Valley before we head out again. Just so they can show me what I did or didn't do to it.
Tomorrow is another day...Just going to post this, forgive any weird sentences or misspellings.
