Well, today’s trip from Navarre, FL to New Orleans, LA was not completely uneventful. With a storm heading towards the I-10 corridor, including New Orleans, I decided to stop along our route today to top off our propane. We stopped at a Pilot. I checked the tanks – one was full and one was empty.
While they were filling the propane tank, I heard a beeping. It was coming from inside the RV. I opened the door and found this…
We’d forgotten to secure the travel latch for the refer door. Oops! Anyway, what a mess. Pickle juice and glass all over the place. So we cleaned up the mess and continued our trip.
About an hour from New Orleans, I encountered a “road gator”! A road gator is the tread of a tire that has come off. It wasn’t mine but I could not avoid it. I ran over it with the truck and the RV. So far, I found one piece of collateral damage. It was to the RV. Under the front of the drop-frame, bolted to it cross-wise “was” a sewer hose tube. Yeah, that’s gone! In it and now gone was my flag pole, wash pole, manual awning hook tool and not sure what else.
So today’s learings:
1. Yes, you do need to lock those refer travel latches
2. Keep your eye as far ahead on the road as you can – maybe you can get past the gators 🙂
