Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of stuff to buy for a motorhome but not much of it is very exciting.
Hoses, both for water and a separate one for cleaning and "waste disposal", surge suppressors, water pressure regulators (yes, plural, I managed to leave the first one at the camp ground; and no, I'm not going back for a $10 item).
Black water tank cleaning aids/gadgets, 30A to 50A and vice versa adapters for power, chemicals for the holding tanks, kitchen items, special TP, air adapter to blowout the plumbing for winter, solid rubber chock blocks, windshield sun screen material, floor mats for the driving compartment... etc. etc. etc.
On the geek side, cell and wifi signal boosters with associated cabling. We'll also need to find a small flat screen TV sometime in the near future. I've ordered LED versions of type 921 bulbs to replace the 17 incandescent versions located throughout the inside of the RV.
Lock kits to replace every one of the outside storage compartment locks as they came with the CH751 type key locks. This is apparently the most common key used in RVs and Motorhomes.
While I debate whether to buy the really fancy Andersen Levelers to level out the RV when parked at a campsite, I went to the big box hardware store for a 2"x8"x8' board and a replacement Carbon Monoxide detector. The one that came with the RV was supposed to have been replaced in 2011. It was beeping merrily yesterday, which is how it came to my notice.
Got a combo unit that functions both as a carbon monoxide and smoke detector along with the board.
Bringing the 2"x8"x8ft board home, along with 5 gallon bucket
Yesterday, I went to the lot where the RV will be stored when not in use to check out the parking spot assigned to her:
Seems a tight fit but it was quite doable.
She's facing East, so somewhat shielded from the sun part
of the day, anyways.
The monthly storage fee entitles me to 24x7 access, use of a dump station and camera security on premises. Not too bad, having electricity would be better but there's a waiting list for that type of slot at a different storage yard.
Took her to the storage facility today, will pick her up probably on Saturday to practice winterizing her plumbing and removing her batteries for the future longer periods she sits in storage.
