I called RC today. I left message but don't know if his # is still the same.  Woman's voice on recording, I left my #. Been a long time since any contact with him.   Nothing new about Wayne.  Ernie Keel (Kiel) has not been around for several weeks but no phone # listed on his page.

Good Morning Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

Found the leak, Harry. In the line going into the Hot Water Heater. Going to try and call someone to fix it as it is beyond my abilities. 

Hope that everyone is doing all right. I see that cooler weather is finally beginning to move in, even down here. It was a cool 67 degrees, here, this morning. It won't last too long, a few days at most.

Frank, sounds like you’ll have a whole new RV when you’re done fixing or replacing everything.

Good afternoon Oldtimers and Troopers ... ..

Just a quick update ... .. took the camper in to the RV dealer for repairs of items that broke on the short trip we took. (We are back in Tampa by the way) Got the slideout unstuck and they had to replace the fittings and lines on the Propane damage. Now we have the flexible rubber lines instead of the copper ones. Lightened the wallet by $575.00!  Most of that was for labour.

Got the camper back to the RV Park, set up and found a water leak under the Kitchen cabinets!!! DANG IT!!
