RV Maintenance - Propane Detector

 Even when I am not using it!

I was picking up the garbage tonight when I heard a "beeping" coming from the RV. Going in, I noticed the light on the propane detector was flashing on and off telling me it was time to replace it. I checked back in the Blog and saw I had last replaced it in April 2016, so it lasted exactly five years. 

They are $100 US (plus $16 shipping) on Ebay or $147 Canadian. I will check around locally before I order one. In the meantime I took it off the kick panel below the sink and cut a wire. No more beeping until it is replaced.

I Think It's Spring!

I have gone from long sleeved, heavy shirts to t-shirts.  I am still wearing jeans but that will not last much longer. I have the furnace turned off as it always seems to be up around 70 by the time I get up. What more could I ask for.

I am looking at the motorhome every day and wondering when I should license it and get out somewhere. Where? I have no idea but somewhere on the Island. I think the ferries should have been shut down on day one of the pandemic for all but medical and commercial travel It has been running at almost full capacity with weekenders tired of being cooped up on the mainland bringing the virus over here. I am still waiting for my second Pfizer shot which will give me 95% protection. Something I can happily live with. In the meantime, it is just same old, same old. I am fine but really sick and tired of being locked in all the time. Is that a glimmer of light I see at the end of the tunnel?

I Got My Shot!

I got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine today. It was very anti-climactic and painless. It was in me before I felt a thing. There was no crowd and I got the impression that they could have allowed at least twice as many people in at the same time.

it has been 4 hours and no ill effects.
