Since our reservation for the campground we had lined up wasn't for another two days, we decided to get a spot somewhere else for our first two nights here. But we loved the first place so much we ended up cancelling our reservation at the other place, especially after driving over there and checking it out. Much better where we already are! It's out in the country, woodsy, quiet and very pretty. It's also a 55 plus community, which both of us are NOT. So shhhh! everyone and don't give us away. Can't believe we crashed an old peoples campground. But what a difference it makes to not have kiddos running amok or a lot of party animals.
We've been busy getting our stuff better organized and are realizing that we could go even smaller if we wanted to. We have some extra storage space at this point. Makes me happy! We've also been spending time with Karin's parents which is why we're here in the first place. Feels good to know we can spend plenty of time with them. They rock!
We called a mobile RV guy the campground recommended about some of the problems we've been having. After talking to Karin a few minutes he said "you guys are new to this aren't you?". Hahahaha....wonder what gave us away? Two of the problems he talked us through over the phone. Yup. They were super simple fixes. The refrigerator and outlet that didn't work were due to a tripped GFI outlet. And the propane not firing was just because we didn't have the LP detector switch in the right position. Oh geeze....how embarrassing! He will be out to check out the water tank issue in the morning. He suspects a valve not connected properly somewhere. Hoping he's right, although from what we saw am still thinking it's the tank itself.
Once we get that all squared away the next thing on our agenda is to buy a car that we can flat tow behind the RV. We came out here car-less. Our unexpected repairs on the road ate into our car fund though. So it's going to be a bit more challenging to get what we need. We're renting a car right now to get around in. So we need to find a car before the end of the week.
So far we are all (fur babies included) adapting very well to living this way. In fact I'd say we are loving it!
