So that is the bulk of our upgrades and modifications we have made over the past two weeks. Tim at Country RV was the biggest help, he troubleshoots the best way to install something and again his rates are more than reasonable. In fact, for all the work he did, he charged us less that what the local dealer wanted just to restring the blinds, now that's a deal!!!
We are pulling out of the Tinker Campground tomorrow (Friday) and turning the rig into the local Heavy Duty Ford shop for brakes, bearing and transmission service before heading west into the higher mountains. These are just normal service items for our mileage, it's just convenient that they need servicing now before the trip.
That's it for now, so we'll see you back here before long with reports from the road!!!

Another job we had Tim take care of was restringing some (ok most all) of our blinds. I guess at 14 years the Day/Night shade blind strings couldn't take it any longer and all seemed to break at the same time. So, 7 blinds later, it's nice to be able to open them all for fresh air and the view.
Last year, I had picked up a mini frig that fits in one of the cargo bays, how ever to get power I've had to run an extension cord out of the bay and into the outer 110 receptacle. While Tim was modifying the elec, I asked if he could also put in a outlet in the bay so I could just plug the frig in there. Of course you know the answer by now. We have a nice new 4 plug outlet in the bay, no more wires sticking out so I can just plug it in and forget it, ahhhhh nice cold drinks with half the hassle.
There is one last thing we had him do, but I'll save that for next time as it goes hand in hand with a DIY project we are finishing up, so on that note, stay tuned........................................

The other major fix we had taken care of was the bedroom slide leak. It has been leaking for sometime now, so we usually just pull it in when it rains. We did have a new outside seal put on last year, but it didn't seem to help much and at that time the RV guy was stumped. This time he had a seal for the inside of the slide out and it has worked great during the last couple of downpours, so looks like we are all set.
I'd like to give a shout out to our RV Guy, Tim at Country RV here in Oklahoma City. He is the owner and has well over 30 years experience. The best part is, he's retired and started Country RV as a side job, has little too no overhead and is very, very reasonable with his rates. I'll wrap up the rest of our modifications on our next post, so see you then.

Odd and Interesting
Signs of all Kinds
During our travels, there are a few things we have noticed, one being all kinds of funny or informative signs and the other just down right interesting sights. I went back through all the photos I've taken and assembled them into 2 new galleries on my Flickr Page. Feel free to stop by the galleries and have a look around. You can go to the gallery page by just clicking the One Way picture on the right side of the blog. These will be updated as we find the new and unusual, so check back once in a while and see what's new.
