We are on the road… again! I know the burning question on your mind is, “but did they have idiot warning lights, sleep in a truck stop their first night, and have breakdowns this time?” Let me answer all of your questions with: Yes! Fun fact: There is a slot on Mercedes Sprinter where youContinue reading “Here we go again. New Delano RV – breakdowns, idiot lights, and other inconveniences….”
Buying RV from Large Camping RV Company. First gratitude. The child safety seat and latch are working fabulously. They (dealer) switched the model they had in stock with a related dealer in one day for the one we needed. They double checked child safety part – and got part for us quick even though thisContinue reading “Buying an RV Snark: To Make Snide and Sharply Critical Comments.”
It’s been a long day. First, our dog’s surgery went well. Growths were removed (as was an unknown broken tooth). We also picked up the Thor Delano RV. The dealer was able to install latch system child seat part! I’ll write more about dealer experience tomorrow. It has been a LONG day.
I’d hate to jinx us…again. But we needed to test some stuff before we (hopefully) pick up the 2020 Thor Delano FB tomorrow. So we “plan” on getting on the road this Saturday. One of the things we purchased in the wake of the Serenity misadventure (and after reading numerous reviews) was a portable washingContinue reading “Test driving a Portable Washer for RVing.”
Spring and Summer 2020 are now known in our house as the time of the Covid – 19 lbs of weight. (I jest about Coronavirus because there is nothing amusing about it. If we don’t laugh we’d cry). Thank you (not) quarantine home cafe. My husband is a good cook. Anyways, my husband and IContinue reading “The Wild Weight Ride: What the Heck are we going to do for food and exercise in RV on the road?”
So, we got a new RV (Thor Delano FB) coming. We think? It has a car seat attachment part we can have installed for kid!! We are ecstatic that this might work out after all! And…our elderly dog (Callie) needs eye surgery. ‘Cause nothing ever goes as planned. So Callie has a growth that hasContinue reading “Yeah, So Surgery Needed for Elderly Dog.”
Success!! Maybe? So we found a different RV (waiting for child seat part to arrive – but they say it’s coming…). Quick RV Requirements Review. We wanted: 1. Used 2. 24 feet long 3. Diesel fuel We needed- an RV with a child seat option. HAD to HAVE. Well, we didn’t get a used RV.Continue reading “Paradise (and no Dashboard Idiot Lights?)”
When we purchased the Serenity the dealer said they only had one set of keys. We were like, what? Yesterday when the mail arrived there was a second set of keys to the now gone Serenity. It’s a bit like salt in a wound. Mailing them back to dealer today. Sigh.
Nothing good lasts forever…but 3 hours? That’s like waiting in line for a Disney ride only to get to the front of the line and have it break. Not that we’ve had that happen or anything. Ok, we did. So, when we left off we had purchased a lemon RV that broke down three hoursContinue reading “Return of the RV”
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? So this pandemic, Covid-19, Coronavirus thing…drove us to purchase an RV… that totally didn’t work out. June 2020. We have a kindergartner/six year old. No school. No camps. And a long summer stretching out before us. The future….It doesn’t look pretty. So we start researching about buying aContinue reading “Because nothing ever goes as planned….”
