CARE volunteer month complete and successful RV repairs, Livingston, TX, Aug. 1, 2012

July 31st was our last day volunteering at CARE and it was an easy day for us.  With our service appointment at West RV Service having us scheduled to arrive on Tuesday pm, we drove the coach down to arrive by 1:30 pm.  We were greeted by the lady at West RV Service as referring to us as the overnight guests.  Soon they parked our coach, hooked us up to electric and water and we were set for the afternoon and night.

We joined the CARE residents for dinner and after the table and chair cleaning, Bob with Ron’s help completed the vacuuming for the last time.

Today was a successful day for our repairs.  A new thermistor for the Norcold achieved the coldness we desired.  A new to us, but used Splendide motor also fixed our washer/dryer combo.

Here is proof the washer/dryer does come out of its space, there is only about 1/2” to spare.  I had to see it to believe it.

By 1:30 we had pulled  out of West RV and were parked at the Escapee’s Rainbow’s End RV Park.  I plan on doing several laundry loads tomorrow to make sure the washer does work as expected before we head down the Mission, TX.

Glad you got the washer all fixed up and can now have clean clothes...hehe

Off to Mission so soon? I didn't know you two went down there this early. Hope you air conditioning works! Safe travels.

What a way to relax after working at CARE for a month...doing laundry! Nothing better than having your own washing machine back on line.

So will the Norcold really stay cold this time? Fingers crossed.

Paul and Marti, We are headed down to Mission early so we can park the RV on our lot at Retama Village and then on the 14th of Aug fly out of McAllen Airport for our trip to Europe.
