While walking out to the motorhome a garter snake startled me into jumping. And dang it, on the way back to the house another garter snake slithered across the grass in front of me–I screamed loud enough to cause the Cowboy to come see if I was OK–I call those Jim Meachum moments–as he HATES snakes!! In the jeep on the way to town this morning a rather large spider dangled himself right in front of my head–I managed to stop the jeep and I am sorry to say, the spider is now very dead! (Sorry Angie!) Another Jim Meachum moment as he also HATES spiders.
The Cowboy has spent lots of time in this position–
Seems the inverter in this motorhome is fried, kaput, done. Once the Cowboy removed the inverter he decided to see if it was fixable by taking it apart. Nope, fried–in the next photo you can see circled in red the “fried, burned, melted” part. Probably a previous owner overloaded the inverter by trying to run an appliance/heater with too large a power draw.
Amazon to the rescue, a new inverter should be here by Friday. The Cowboy joined an AquaHot forum and it’s a good one. The owner/moderator is extremely knowledgeable and sells parts and tools for repairing AquaHot heating systems. Our parts and tool came today–the Cowboy was able to make the AquaHot fire and burn for the first time–hooray, hooray!!!
Monday we went to Big Timber to visit Nat and for an unsuccessful parts run. In the late afternoon we took dinner to Lonn’s–it was Katie’s 30th birthday–we had a great time and the meal was fabulous if I do say so myself–spaghetti, homemade bread, salad and rhubarb crisp.
Tuesday was a much needed yoga day for me and the Cowboy was working on the motorhome. Today I went to town again–to see my nurse practitioner. It was just a routine visit–my blood pressure was fantastic, had blood drawn as I take a statin and received the first Shingrix vaccine. My appointment was at 8:30am and by the time I left the clinic I was starving (had to be fasting for the blood draw)–so I found my friend Jill at her office and we went to breakfast at our local bakery.
I spent the afternoon in the motorhome cleaning–oh, my goodness–how in the world could anyone be so filthy?? But I did make some progress and I made the lights in one of the potty rooms work–that’s an accomplishment for me! One of these days we will be ready to take a trip in that motorhome–I hope!
