Roof Maintenance

Motorhomes need some maintenance too. I don't like climbing onto the roof but I still do it. This work took three trips to get it all done. This weekend was much cooler and lower humidity so it was time to do it all. I cleaned all three air conditioners, scrubbed the roof, and finally waxed all 40 feet of the roof. My third trip up was needed to reseal the plumbing vent that had some cracked sealant. I also waxed the exterior. I was very tired by Sunday evening but now it's all done for the year, I hope.

I also washed and waxed the exterior, another job that wears me out.
Check out that shine 😃

I get on the roof with an extension ladder that I keep at my sister's house.

I don't use the rear ladder, I don't trust it.

Waxing the fiberglass roof took another three hours.
Check out that shine 😃

I was getting very tired. Luckily we have good shade in the late afternoon.

Slide out covers are also cleaned and checked.

Now I have to get down, my least favorite part of roof maintenance 😓
I was ready to sit in my chair.

Versailles Indiana Campground Host

 We arrived at Versailles on April 1st to start our duties as campground host. The park is empty in early April. May has been busier and June is now full on weekends. We have the best camp site in the whole park with good tree shade, water, sewer and 50 amp electric service. We are host in campground section C. Section A and B also have campground hosts. This is our site until the end of August when someone else will have September and October. We plan to return next year and hope to stay the entire season, April through the end of October. Another plus, we are not burning $6.00 a gallon diesel this summer!

Hummingbirds, Robins, Redbirds, Bluebirds, Mocking birds, Wood Peckers,
Crows, Hawks and Turkey Vultures visit us daily. 

We have plenty of space for outdoor use.

Mary has a garden.

Flowers for the Humming birds.

We had a snow day on April 18th. The park was empty.

My almost daily morning chore. They all know me by now and wait patiently to escape. Raccoons like the dumpster so I bring a broken tree branch so
they can crawl out after their midnight snack.

Spring has many fields around the area full of goldenrod.
