Expensive Repairs.....UGH

Part of my Christmas presents from my husband were to take Bella to the RV Dealership and get some repairs done that I didn't feel comfortable doing.  In other words, I didn't want to blow myself and the neighborhood up. Ha  So I took Bella and had a new Air Vent installed on top, propane lines checked, and running lights checked.  The 40.00 vent cost 250.00 (119.00 a hr. labor), blowing out the propane lines and installing cut off gauges to the 2 tanks and checking the running lights to see why they kept flickering (which ended up being the ground wire) was 348.00.  I don't know if I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I had the running lights checked for 50.00 and they were working fine on our Oct. camping trip but they started flickering on the way home.  For anybody out there that has a problem like this, simply remove all your covers on your lights to make sure the wires have not slipped loose therefore causing the ground to not connect.  Your wires ground off the tin on your travel trailer.  At least that is what the technician told me. I should know this since I installed all 8 of them and the back lights. This probably happened when I went across a bridge that the good ole NCDOT was working on in Durham, NC and thought we were going to go airborne.

Anyway, my mistakes can save you plenty.  Just ask me anything. Ha.  Things that I thought would be too complicated to do I charged ahead and did them and succeeded.  However, when the weather started getting too cold and raining to work on the outside, I resorted to the other guy doing the work.  Live and Learn.....

As soon as the weather gets nice I am going to set Bella up with her new awning I made and put all her goodies in her and take some pictures.  

P.S.   Bet my husband didn't know he would have to spend sooooo much on me this Christmas.  I also like my Kindle Fire.  Thank you Honey!
