Well, it has been a couple of weeks since we got here. We washed the Motor Home on Sunday and then moved over to Charles and Charlotte's lot. I turned on the inverter and setup the Satellite dish. I wanted to see how the batteries would last with all of the batteries being used instead of just one.

Susan borrowed a portable vacuum cleaner with beater bar to give a quick clean before shampooing the carpet. She did all of the vacuuming on the inverter and we would need more solar panels if we were to try boondocking on solar only. But, that is why we have a generator.

We received permission from Donna Mae to park on her lot which is next door. That way, we could plug into our shed for power.

Sue borrowed the carpet shampooer from Keith and Lee and started on the Motor Home. She shampooed the carpet twice. The first time, the liquid came up chocolate brown. The second time it came up light tan. Sue then shampooed the furniture. Now, we realize that the Motor Home had not been detailed by the dealer. All in all, it had needed a good cleaning.

Sue then spent more time using a good cleaner/oil on the wood in the Motor Home. The cleaner helped to cover up some minor scratches in the wood. Now, the wood glows.

All of this is being done in preparation for renting out the Motor Home. We were asked if we would be willing to rent the unit out for December and January. We thought about it for a few days and decided that as long as we knew the people or their references, we could do this. It will help recover some of the cost of getting window solar screens.

When I sit here in the Park Model and look over at the Motor Home, I think that we really did get a good looking unit. I will have to post some pictures so that everyone can see.
