Cold and Windy

So far it has been a cold and windy Sat. Yesterday was not too bad. This morning it was windy and cold. We had a tour of a small candy factory/store about 8 miles north of here. That was very interesting. They do almost everything by hand. They did a slide show. Then we bought some sugar free candy. They had a lot of it. On the way home it started sleeting. Couldn't believe that. It turned to rain after we got home. Stopped on the way and filled up the truck with fuel. This afternoon we played card bingo. Thelma won 3 times the last time she won 5 dollars. Two other times she got 2 60. She never wins at regular bingo where you put something on the cards. Tonight we have a chicken dinner and then entertainment. Elvis is in the house. He had been here before. He is pretty good. He doesn't do all the Elvis shaking Just sings his songs good. Well that is it for today. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Got the camper back

This morning I went down and picked up the fiver. When I hooked it up and plugged in the electric cord it said trailer disconnected on my brake controller. Oh Oh. So I tried the hazard lights. Nothing on the trailer. Pulled up to the office and told them We have a problem. The service manager came out and checked. I didn't have any turn signals coming out of the truck. Well I had blown a fuse under the hood. Got that fixed. Still no brakes. The checked the box at the hitch and they had wired it wrong. They fixed that and I was on my way. Got new studs on the rear axle. Now I need to find all the nut covers that I took off when we had all the flats. They are in the basement somewhere. So we have 4 new tires and one new spare. I kept the one other tire that I bought and going to put it on another rim and have two spares when we make a long trip like south to Fl . That way I won't get taken again. The guy down in Ky really took me. I bought the tires here for half the price that guy charged me. Nothing you can do when you are stranded on the road.  Well that is it for tonight. Fri we leave for a weekend camping over in Ohio with our FCRV family. We spent 14 years over there when International closed our plant here in Ft Wayne. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

I hate this new blogger

I sure wish they had this new format or whatever you call it up their you know what. I sure have a lot of trouble finding my way around. I haven[t posted for a few days and when I got on it was new. Does anybody else hate it or do you like it better. I don't know why they had to change it. Well off my soapbox now  later  Ron and Thelma and Eli

New tires

Today I had new tires put on the trailer. They were the same make as what I had put on down in Ky when we had two flats. I got two here for almost what one cost me down there. I had to pay a extra charge since the guy came out to us but the tire was about 50$ more than what I paid here. I also took the trailer to a dealer to have the studs replaced on the hub. The rear axle had both hubs with two damaged studs. They will replace all six in each one. Boy this has been an expensive year. Hope to have it back by the weekend of the 27-8 We are planning on going to Ohio for a campout over there. He said he should be able to do it. I have somebody coming to fix the dryer Fri afternoon. Yea more money. We went to the laundromat the other day to get some clean clothes. Well guess that is it for tonight Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

A bad day

We got started around 9 this morning. Stopped at a tire store and got the tires all aired up. We made pretty good time. When we got into Ky we had one tire blow out along I65. Called road service and they sent somebody out to change it. Had to wait an hour or more. He put the spare on and then about an hour later the spare blew. Of course we had no spare. drove along the berm to the next exit and got off. There was a station there so asked them about a tire place. They gave me a number to call. I talked to the guy and he had a tire so he came out and put a new tire on . Big bucks. Tire plus service call. Now we are in Sheperdsville, Ky for tonight and tomorrow night. I will try and find a tire here tomorrow. We have not unhooked as it was dark when we got here. Got the electric hooked up and came in. They have wifi here so tomorrow will try and get all the pictures uploaded. The Mc Ds. wifi sucked. Well that is for tonight Hope tomorrow is better  Later Ron Thelma and Eli
