It seems to be a picky thing anyway. Our friends changed theirs twice themselves, but it leaked each time, beginning a couple of years ago. It's one of those jobs that I'm just as happy to have the shop do, since Courtenay has plenty of tasks on his plate, He did install the new water pump after the last trip, which requires lots of contortions and working blind for part of it. At least that was inside the trailer, out of the weather.“But don’t worry, you’ll be charged full price” is what I get out of that… hopefully the new, new one works out better for you!
Wow! Anticipation!We had a brand new bag awning made at a canvas and awning place.
Old one, the zipper was ripping out and the bag itself was in bad shape. I thought all we would have to do is take the awning itself to the place, they could have it all winter long and simply manufacture/sew the new awning and bag with the original hardware to the same size and we'd be good. Turns out, they wanted the camper there so they could set it up and make sure everything was fitting and right. That's great that they wanted to be that meticulous. Trouble is, we already had the camper put away for the winter. So anyway we took the camper back out, took it there and left it. They said it should take a week to ten days. Two weeks later and we still hadn't heard anything and there was supposed to be measurable snow coming that week. That 32 year old camper has never seen salt and I sure didn't want it to now and I don't have a place to wash it this late in the year. Everything's packed up and put away for the Winter.
Anyway, they called the day before the snow was supposed to come and said it was done. So while I was at work, the wife got it home and we put it back away that night just before the snow the next morning. So we never even had a chance to set it up and check it out. I hope they did an awesome job, but I guess we'll have to wait until Spring to see.
I wonder if there's a app for that... ;-)Today I am making a computer list of all the supplies that will need to be restocked, from fridge, cupboards, and food boxes, while it is all fresh in my memory. I had a typed list used last year and this, which has so much added, subtracted, and scribbled in that it was time to start fresh.
