My New Tire Pressure Monitoring System…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I am scheduled to depart November 27th. While here, I’ll be doing cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to both vehicles.

 

 

 

I have finally bought a tire pressure monitoring system.

 

I’ve been RVing for my than 50 years and have never really had bad tire problems. I’m wondering if it’s the law of averages that finally made me do it?

 

I’m thinking that it’s likely some of that, so I sprung for the $449 amount.

 

Installation of the system took about an hour. it’s capable of monitoring up to 22 tires. I only have ten to monitor, six on the motorhome and four on my towed Ford Bronco II.

 

Here are some photos…

It’s kind of neat to know what’s going on with your tires at all times.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Yesterday was sunny and 57 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 74 degrees.

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

Different Shades Of Red…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Birch Bay RV Resort in Blaine, Washington. This location marks the furthest northern most point of our planned 2014 travels. I’ve been here several times over the years and always enjoy the area. Our departure date is set at August 12th.

DIFFERENT SHADES OF RED…

Last Thursday we got in the Bronco to go grocery shopping and there it was…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

The red light came on indicating the battery was no longer being charged. Who needs it???

I was able to drive it in this condition to Blaine, 5 miles distant, to the NAPA store and garage…

In about 2.5 hours and about $250 later, they replaced the 7-year-old battery and installed a new alternator. Red light gone and all is well once again. When events such as these happen, I do not begrudge them for both the motorhome and Bronco are only mechanical/electrical devices that work really hard to bring us to many wonderful places and experiences. Such is life…

On Friday evening, on returning to the motorhome after listening to some live music here in the park at 9 PM…I saw some other reds in the windshield of our motorhome…

Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 80 miles from Danbury to Ivoryton, Connecticut. The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th.

Mary is in Las Vegas, Nevada for her grandson’s high school graduation. Today’s forecast is for 113 degrees! WOW! The forecast for the remainder of June is all days in excess of 100 degrees! I’m glad I’m not there!

Yesterday’s drive was in a VERY HEAVY DOWN-POURING OF RAIN thanks to Tropical Storm Andrea. I’ve put a red dot at my approximate location…

The drive began on Interstate Highway 84. Hard to believe the heavy rainfall didn’t keep idiot drivers from their 75-80 miles per hour speeds. It was so dangerous I decided to leave the Interstate Highway and complete the rest of the drive on back roads. It was three times as slow…but ten times safer…

001

The only downside to this strategy was the route signs were poorly marked and I got temporarily “lost” a few times…but I finally made it to my son’s home. The 80 mile drive took me three hours. Normally upon arrival at a location I show a couple of photos of my new location. Because of the very heavy rainfall, all you will see today is the usual dinette window photo…

The basketball backboard and hoop are new since my last time here three years ago. I figure the back board will help protect the window. I hope I’m right!  🙂 More photos tomorrow.

Enjoying visiting with family is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

Park City, Kentucky – Day 2

The motorhome is still parked at the Thousand Trails Diamond Caverns RV Resort at Park City, Kentucky. We expect to leave here on Friday.

Mary spent most of yesterday on legal paperwork. I spent most of the day reading and assisting her with computer and printer problems. After she finished the paperwork had to be mailed, so off to town we went. Along the way back I took a few photos…
