Working On The Motorhome – Day 4

The motorhome is parked in Mary’s yard at her home at Murphys, California. I expect to be here until shortly after Thanksgiving cleaning and doing minor work on both the motorhome and Bronco. After our 682 day journey, they are both ready for some attention.

The sunny, mid-to-high 70’s weather continues…for today. The weather forecast changed dramatically overnight. Tomorrow is now 56, cloudy with showers.

Now that all my outside work is done on the motorhome and Bronco,  I’ve shifted my attention to the inside of the motorhome, meaning…start the interior cleaning.

First activity yesterday was to fix the cosmetic cover piece on the dinette seat where Mary normally sits…

Since the wood had striped from the screws, I had to move all three brackets about one inch to the left and re-insert the screws. All fixed now…


As long as I had the seat area opened, I decided that area needed cleaning. We have used this area to store seldom used items…


So out everything came. After I took the next photo, Mary decided she wanted to keep our scanner in her home office, so the area is now empty…


As I took the stuff out, I kinda sorta evaluated why I need to keep it. Most of it came from my previous motorhome which I sold in 2009. I’ve been hauling this stuff around for years. Today I’ll more closely evaluate the items. I believe most of the printed matter is now available online and I expect it will end up in the recycle bin…


Slowly but surely, I’m chipping away at my to do list. More cleaning today.

Since our accident about 1.5 years ago, I now suffer from diminished energy/stamina. I can now work only 2-3 hours a day before I get tired and have to quit. I know that these current Blog entries are not particularly exciting reading, but they do reflect the daily activities of a full-time RVer. Gotta stop and clean and work on the vehicles once in a while!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
