ReJex and Fall in Tennessee

The tree leaves in Tennessee are hanging on. It's very dry and forest fires are going in several places. The trees that did loose their leaves were dried up brown with not many colors. We are still in Tennessee for another week. The traffic was crowded as usual so you need to be patient. Driving into the mountains last week was almost impossible.

Our friends Steve and Lisa purchased our prior Tiffin motor home. They stayed at Cades Cove last week so we did get to visit with them one afternoon. Steve has added an DC to AC inverter to the motor home, quite a job which he did successfully. It was a clean install, what I would expect from Steve. We did not have an inverter when we owned it since we did not dry camp. In Cades Cove, there is no electric, water or sewer connections and generators are only allowed a few hours to recharge your batteries.

I was busy for 6 days last week, washing and applying Rejex to the motor home.
Rejex is the best polymer paint sealer I have every used. It's not wax, not even close. It lasts at least a full year. It's applied as a paste/liquid, like a liquid wax, drys quickly and wipes off easily. It does not clean anything from the surface so your paint must be clean of all bugs and tar. If you have applied wax prior to ReJex, you must wash and scrub the paint with Dawn dish soap first to get the wax off. Better yet, start using Rejex as soon as you get that new vehicle, of course wait at least 60 days from manufacturing date so the paint is cured. A 12 ounce bottle will do two cars. A 16 ounce bottle will do the motor home. You won't find it in local stores so search Google and you will find several places to order it.

Our location for the last month at River Plantation in Sevierville. Rejex is complete except the roof. That will be completed in a couple weeks. Too much dust here from a rock quarry about a half mile away. Our vehicles get the Reject treatment every year in the fall.
The Apple Barn is a required stop for dinner and stuff you probably don't really need.
New to us, we had lunch at Paula Dean's resturant at the "Island" in Pigeon Forge.
Our friends Barry and Donna from French Lick visited us for a few days. We have been friends for about 35 years, meeting when we were in the Indiana Volunteer Fireman's Association.
This was across the street from Pauls Dean's in case you needed some liquid after lunch.
This is in the center of the Island, across from Pauls Dean's.
It's called the Dancing Fountain, complete with music.
