This is what happened these last few days in Bemidji. When we left Voyageurs Park, our coach steps would not go in. Luckily, a good samaritan was kind enough to push them in for us so we could drive. The steps had been acting up, so we knew that something would have to be done. That something was now. Thanks to Amazon Prime and a very handy hubby, we ordered a new motor for the steps. It came in today and Dave has already replaced the motor and the steps work great.
The windshield washer hose on the truck was leaking, so Dave took care of that. Yesterday, we went on a road trip through Bemidji and the air conditioner stopped working and just blew hot air. This had happened before and I was dying in the heat yesterday. Dave stopped and fixed it.
In the meantime, I've been doing laundry, making potato salad and rearranging some things. And on a happy note, when I went to WalMart for potatoes, I saw the vase and straw flowers I've been wanting for a certain cubbyhole. To make it even better, the vase looks like a ceramic vase, but it's only resin, so it's lightweight and will stay in place. Score!
The last thing we've worked on is a hydraulic leak on the rig in the back. Dave fixed the leak, but I need to go back to WalMart to replace the hydraulic fluid we've lost
All in all, the rig chose the perfect time to need repair work and we'll be ready to head out on Monday to Dickinson, ND to see Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It's hard to believe that we only have a month left before we start our winter journey.
