Monday through Tuesday, March 18-April 2—Readying the RV for a Louisiana Rally. On Monday it was driven to Purcell’s on Mabelvale Road for new tires (via the FMCA Michelin tire program) and servicing (oil and filter change and greasing). Tuesday it was back into storage where it stayed until Thursday, March 28.
Dewinterizing is relatively easy, in and of itself, but involves a lot of hurry up and wait. During the process, the RV was washed and dried, and pulled into storage while the tanks and lines were being sanitized. The chlorinated water was drained on Friday and the fresh water tank partially refilled to finish the job. Then, it was back into storage where the refrigerator was turned on. On Monday, a peck in the windshield was repaired. Now, all that remained was packing.
Clothes, groceries, and cameras were loaded Tuesday; we’re ready to go.
