On Sunday, the 16th, I checked our house batteries, and the air in the tires. We went to the Ice Cream Social, and Marilyn made a delicious pot roast. On Monday, the 20th, we went to Paul and Peg Gifford’s home in Lakeland, FL. They took us to a delicious lunch at Tapatillo’s. Tuesday was our final shopping in the Leesburg area, plus we checked to see if my new glasses were in – not. Marilyn left her new glasses to be adjusted. Both will end up having to be mailed to us while we are on the road.
This morning, the 19th, we left Sumter Oaks RV Park. I left about 11:15AM with the motorhome. I stopped at the Wildwood Truck Wash to get the house washed. It was $60 plus $30 for the roof (I wrote a check before he changed the price). Marilyn joined be about noon, and, with the Jeep attached, we drove to the Ocala rest area for lunch.
We are now parked at the Tifton, GA Wal-Mart for the night.
Earlier this year, our towed’s US Gear auxiliary brake system died. Southeast Power diagnosed the problem as the power unit. Two hundred later we went on our way. Hitched once, the system seemed to work. This morning when we hitched, it did not work. It is almost 10 years old, just like our Blue Ox hitch. Blue Ox said they would not service this unit again. We will be looking for a new towed brake system at Quartsite along with a new tow bar.
