It passed

The warranty inspector came yesterday to inspect my motor home and ensure everything was in working order. Everything checked out, as my brothers thought, and I am now covered under a 48 month / 48,000 mile extended warranty/service contract. Those things are expensive, but if I have a break down, I'll be very glad to have things covered. Buying something used, you never know just how precariously something is working at the moment, or how well the previous owners took care of things, so it's better to be safe than sorry.

I got Roadside Service coverage added to the insurance package I bought, so if I break down somewhere I can call for help or a tow truck. This seems really important for a woman on the road alone.

Since it's been 113° or higher all week with no relief in sight for the next month or two, very little is going to get done inside to clean or update. I just don't have the energy or desire to do much of anything like that when it's this hot. I am going on an Alaskan cruise in a few weeks, so I'm not planning to go anywhere in Winnie Minnie until at least August anyway. For now, it's parked in the side yard and Hanna is making sure it doesn't drive away without us.

It just fits!

Getting the gate ready

The gate into my side/back yard was only ten feet wide, and was directly under the 20 inch overhang of the roof eave, so it was too narrow for getting my RV through. I had to have it widened to twelve feet. Here's a few before and after pictures.

These trees need to go

My landscaper is going to remove a couple small palm trees and grade and level a driveway through the yard, so I won't drag the rear end coming up the hill. That won't be until after I bring the coach home, so if I can't get it up through the yard, I will have to park it at my brother's house for a couple of days. Getting closer!
