Well I noticed today that we are winding down our working life and about to hit our retirement date. With all the unusually cold weather we haven’t been able to get a lot done. The rig has been cleaned inside and out and is seemingly ready for her first trip. However, we have a few key things that must be done before we can leave.
I put up a punch list a few days ago and have been updating it as I get things done or as I realize something else that needs to be done. One thing not on the list that absolutely has to be done before we leave is to have the refrigerator serviced. Even though I asked the previous owner if he had taken care of the Norcold recall and he said yes… he didn’t. I called Norcold with all the necessary info and they said it had not been serviced. So now we have to wait till the part arrives (sometime next week it will be shipped) and have it installed. We decided we will need a refrigerator before we leave :)
Another key item to get done is the baseplate on our toad. It has been ordered and should arrive next week. I have already spoken with a mechanic who said he would install it. Also, we have started selling our bigger items on craigslist. Our antique dining room set sold, along with an antique rocker, an antique sideboard, an outdoor wicker furniture set, my 42 inch flat screen TV :( and a few other items. The last really big item that we must sell is our early 1900 English three piece bedroom set. Some of our keeper stuff has even been loaded into the RV.
We might make it down to the Houston RV show on Saturday since we can’t make an outing in the RV yet. We still have much to do and the clock is ticking…
