  • Days 6 & 7: Rain & Cold

    Posted on December 7th, 2017 cwmoore No comments

    Yesterday, Wednesday 6 December, I was awakened by the sound of rain. However, I did not hear it on the roof of the coach and since it was time to get up, I arose and started the coffee and breakfast porridge. Being stoked with food and caffeine, I went outside and discovered the reason for the rain sound. Water was pouring from compartment where the hose attaches to the coach. When I opened the coach compartment door it was filled with water and I could see it pouring from the vanity panel. I shut the water off and called our new found rv park maintenance guy RV Steve. A while later he came over and discovered the newly installed winterization valve was pouring out water. I called Ben Davis in Auburn and Mack said he would cover it and I could get RV Steve to install it if it was less than $220 materials and labour. Steve said he would do it for that price so all was good. The bad news is that it will take 3 days to get here. While all this was going on it was raining pretty hard. Well, it continued to rain all day and all night into December 7. From the weather reports the rain will continue unabated for the next two days. After that it is going to get cold, like well below freezing, so we are thinking of how we will prep the RV.

    Today, Thursday 7 December will be spent looking into cold weather preparation. I want to go a few places too plus go out for lunch. The story will continue into this afternoon. Still raining hard and even harder to come judging by the radar. Current temperature is 46°F, heat is on and the skies overcast. went to lunch at Rodeo Mexican Grill and it was good with Burger King prices. Then up to Valdosta Harbor Freight (bought some shop clothes ), Walmart looking for gooseneck for GPS – no luck there and back to the RV. Rain is light now and temperature has not started free fall yet.
