I have an MRI later this month, they're doing them 24/7 now so only a 7 week wait instead of a year :clap: :clap: Happy to hear your wrist is hanging in there, we just need to know our limits.

Seems to me there is still a lot of uncertainty over the shutdown, I don't think there's any downside to applying for unemployment. You'd be kicking yourself if a month from now nothing has changed, God forbid.


Happened to me 2 yrs ago but my surgery was totally different. just dont over do it :bighug:

Raining in California? Well isn't that crazy :knockout: Weather seems to be changing everywhere, we're down to two seasons here, drought and monsoon, it's been so wet but no snow so I guess that's something :drink:

Is the battery hard to remove? You could always take it home to keep it charged?

Nice RV! :goodjob:

You're right, with all the rain I forgot all about the fires we had last summer.

I guess it should be:
1) Drought/Wild Fire
2/ Monsoon/Extreme Wind

We had some wicked winds after weeks of downpour so the trees toppled like crazy, no power for 5 days :rolleyes:

No Power for 5 days That's crazy tell me you have a Generator for such times?
I have one I have had to use a few times back some time ago now our power was down for 3 or 4 days due to a Main breaking in the Mountains in the heat of summer no less no fun.
But We had the Generator.

Well its looking like I get to go back to work finally.

I have a small genny that I used for the freezer, and the motorhome has one built in so we were able to cook in there and have some light. Biggest issue was no water, we're on a well, that and the fridge inside had no power. I'm going to put in a generator panel this year and get a reasonably big generator so we can power the well pump, hot water tank, fridge and at least one circuit of plugs and lights.

Happy to hear you're back to work! :goodjob:

My son has one that can power the entire house, oven and all, it's a beast but it uses a ton of fuel so I'm trying to find a happy medium. Probably around 8KW. Once you get up over 10KW you need a fuel drum on your truck to feed the beast. We had quite a few gas stations shut down after they ran out of fuel, and the ferries couldn't run in the storms. :rolleyes:
