The water pump is still working so I guess I did it right. I got to thinking (always dangerous) that maybe the significant amount of bleach I add to the tank every time I fill it might have a detrimental effect on the rubber parts of the pump.
Our StarChoice signal is weakening again I went out and looked up. There is a palm tree branch way up that might be in the way. It is too high to "fix' and I cannot move the dish slightly forward to avoid it as it is already near the seawall. It will take a complete move of the dish to the front and side of the motorhome to find clear sky and that would put the dish in the wind and also a little close to the next site, not that they are lining up to move in there. That may become our project for today.
We went grocery shopping yesterday in a tropical rainstorm. It was so loud hitting the roof of the Soriana store that you could not talk inside! It had quit by the time we left the store and the sun was out again.
Starchoice move completed and getting a good signal. Now if I can just keep from running into it!
