I realized after yesterday's post that that collage I assembled was the pits. Yeah... I do that every now and then... (maybe more "now than then" these days)... but since I already knew what everything looked like, it was okay to this non-mechanical... non-??? ... well, heck... I was an English major.... go figure...
Anyway... today it actually got up to 60+ degrees! Yahoo! Yippee! and a few other expletitives .....
So... after our Friday trip to H.E.B. this morning (you NEVER want to venture out into town after 10:00 on a Friday morning... traffic is awful).... Bill went to work on the rig again....
All the rotten wood has been removed... now starts the rebuilding of the infrastructure
This board isn't really in place yet... Bill is just showing me where it will go to replace the rotten one. But... at the top of the new board is the "gap" that Lazy Daze accidentally left when building our rig that caused all the damage.
This is where that board will go when Bill's ready to put it in. I am going to repeat myself here, but believe me when I say that Lazy Daze puts out a fantastic motorhome. We may have this problem, but if we ever have to buy another motorhome, trust me.... we'd head right back to California and order one just like we have. Sure, things happen.... but we feel like our 13 years on the road were only possible because of our excellent living conditions.
And on the opposite side, he's already put the new board in place. Those clamps are holding it secure until the glue dries.
Tomorrow Bill will head to Home Depot or Lowe's... buy a sheet of paneling and begin the tedious job of making the cuts to replace the stuff he had to take out.
And, like so many of you have said... YES! Thank goodness that the "capable" handymen are here to do the job. It's a whole 'nother story, but, believe me, I've learned that not everyone has these abilities. So... as you can tell... there'll be "the rest of the story" to follow.
That's All For Today!
