Waiting for the next shoe to drop

The wind is blowing about 30-40 mph. It really is rocking this rig. The slide out rooms act just like wings! I don't like the toppers over the slide out rooms. I would never have had them put on, but the previous owner did, so I am stuck with them. They are very noisy when the wind blows them. I had one new one, to replace one that was in bad condition. It had holes in it, I was afraid it would rip, and thus cause damage to my slide out. Now, I am wondering if the other ones will have to be replaced before I was planning on it. New, depending on how large they are, they cost about $400.00 each. I have three slides, so you can see that is a lot of money. I thought about just having them removed, but everyone I talked to said they liked theirs, and it would help keep sun and rain, and tree limbs off. Any hows, seems like there is always something to "fix" on these RV! Maybe the wind will just blow me somewhere for the winter!


  1. Hi, things went well at CW, I have been happy with the shop in New Braunfels. I just had an oil change and asked them to lube some squeaky parts - then I had a Fantastic Fan installed in the middle of my rig. I wanted to get an automatic awning, they sell the one I liked online but do not install that brand, they only install a different brand. Barbara @ "Me and my dog" said there is a guy near Quartzite that installs the better awnings, so I will see if I get out that way in February or March. Have you decided if you are moving yet?

    1. Teri, e mail me if you can. I won't be going to Q that late in the year, but haven't decided what I am going to do yet.
