Steve washed the coach when we returned. Look how it shines!
What could go wrong that needs fixing, one might ask. Just like a house, stuff happens, but when something happens to a house, if you cannot fix it yourself, someone comes to repair it for you. An RV must be driven to a service center for repairs most of the time. There are a few mobile repair services and we use them when possible. It’s true, the RV life is not all fun and games.
We needed to replace our refrigerator, so off to the service center we did go. We thought our massive windshield would have to be removed (at great expense) to allow enough space to take out the old appliance and bring in the new, a two or three day job. We hoped to turn our inconvenience into a vacation, so we made reservations at a nice hotel in the tourist district of Orlando and dropped off our RV at Giant Recreation World in Winter Garden, Florida.
Did we forget we are still in a Pandemic? Florida is open for business, but business in the tourist area was not booming. We seemed to be alone in our hotel. Having our Jeep we were able to travel. We had put off shopping at Costco for a long time, because it is a distance away from our RV park. This seemed like the time to do it. We drove out to Costco in Altamonte Springs, shopped, and then dined at Bahama Breeze, conveniently located on the parking lot of the Mall. Would you call this a vacation? We did eat, drink, and be merry for three days. We do that all the time. (Yes. We are blessed and grateful.)
We are also very grateful to the service techs at Giant Recreation World for finding a way to get our RV back to us on time. Rather than calling on the very busy people who remove RV windshields, they found a way to make the exchange by removing the window over our couch. Tight squeeze! They took the doors off both appliances and did whatever was necessary to accomplish the job, disconnecting the old and installing the new. We are very pleased with our new Frigidaire residential-size refrigerator. AND we are glad to be back in our HOME SWEET HOME.
