How I wish that was the only problem. Last night, I was unable to lock the door with the deadbolt. Today, because it was on my "honey do" list, I looked at the problem. The pin on the piano hinge was sliding out, so I tapped it back into place. It did not fix the problem. The tolerance on the strike plate was such that the small amount of sag that occurred caused the dead bolt to hit the strike plate. When I get home, I will find a friend with a vice so that I can modify the strike plate so that it accepts the deadbolt. For now, the strike plate is removed and the deadbolt works fine.
I have lots of things to take care of when we get home. The trailer needs to be washed and waxed. The generator needs to be run and checked. The slide-outs need to be lubricated again, as well as the rubber gaskets on the slide-outs. One scissor-jack needs to be replaced and the others lubricated again.
When we are constantly moving, routine maintenance is a problem. Fortunately, we stay in one location long enough to work on things when we are in New England or the desert Southwest. We are both looking forward to arriving home in fewer than three weeks--19 days, but who's counting.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave us a comment so that we know you were here.
