Where Are We Today
In my last post, I talked about our " Blue Boy" ( which from now on I'll call our honey wagon, because ours is really grey, not blue) and how I was making it easier to dump without spillage.

I also ordered a macerator or RV Waste Pump from Camping World, which arrived promptly by UPS. After following the instructions for wiring, I went to attach it to the trailer dump connection ( this a four pin twist on devise) all four clips on the RV Waste Pump snapped off.

The air got blue for a few seconds and that was the end of that. The next morning I sent an email along with pictures to Customer Service at Camping World stating what I had done and asking for advice as to getting it replaced. Within a couple of hours, I received an email from them apologizing for any inconvenience, and stating they were sending another email with a prepaid UPS shipping label. When it is picked up by UPS and the tracking number shows it is transit, they will send out a replacement within 2-3 business days. My return was picked up Friday morning on the 19th of January, so I am hoping that on Monday, I will have notice that the new one is on its way.

On Saturday we attended the Quartzsite RV show, a must when you are here, the thousands of people who make up the jostling, elbow knocking, people standing in your way crowd and organized chaos that goes along with any event like this, man you got to be in your glory.
Last year when we went to the show, yes we came back for a second time, we found items that we would like to have for our RV, one being a new generator. The one we have is a Champion 3500 watt construction generator, you know, the noisy one. After looking at several over the past year, that would fit the criteria that we set for our needs, we planned and saved to purchase a new one this year. The Champion 3400 inverter generator is what we bought.
The gentlemen at the Champion booth, said they would get it ready for us by taking it out of the box, putting in the oil and a little gas to make sure it ran. When we were ready to pick it up, we just had to drive the truck along the outside of the fence and they would lift it over to us and right into the back of the truck.

While that was being done, we walked back into the big tent to browse some more. We bought one more item for the trailer, that being a new outside light. Our friends Pat and Rob, showed us theirs last year and we thought it was a good idea. The light acts as a outside light or motion sensor light. When you first turn it on it acts as the motion sensor light, turn the switch off and back on it acts as an outside light.
Today I installed that light on the trailer. It works well and gives off a good bright light.

There you have it, and as Ken and Shirley said, I was to get on the ball and do a post to satisfy their curiosity.
When the new macerator comes in and I have it up and running, I will let you all know.
We had a bit of excitement for the second time in the last two weeks, as police, sheriff, fire rescue and ambulance raced to the back of LaPosa South LTVA, don't know what happened, but they left without flashing lights.

Thanks for following along, welcome and read all comments, until the next time take care and be safe.
