I may not have mentioned it previously, but our entry steps have been a little reluctant going in and out. They retract when we drive down the road, but when we open the door they extend and retract when the door is closed. They have rebelled a couple times in the last month or so, so we went under, should I say Jan went under the motorhome and cleaned them up. We figured they had picked up so much dirt and grime from our Alaska trip that maybe that was the only problem. Now normally when we are parked for awhile like here in Florida, we set the steps to just stay out, but here working on the coach, we have them set to retract each time the door closes so Rick can slide his platform up to the side of the coach to work on the front cap. Well, today Murphy raised his head and the steps quit again, then they worked awhile later, then they quit, you get the idea. So by the time we figured out the motor was bad it was 5pm, so I missed ordering a replacement by 5 mins! A project for tomorrow.
Anyway I digress, midmorning Jan and I took off to go find some lunch, do a little grocery shopping and get away for a bit. We had a good lunch, drove to a very disappointing Camping World to look around, picked up some groceries and headed back.
In the meantime Rick had sanded down all the filled spots again, sanded and primed the entire front cap, and we found out we are going into the paint booth tomorrow!
