Wondering about wild grapes

Sunday, February 23, 2014

It has not been a good week.

I told you about the problem with the Jeep.  It didn't stop there.  We took the motor-home out this morning and the alarm (which is loud enough for a deaf person to hear) would not shut off.  It didn't sense that the levelers where up.  What changed over night?  Well, I just drove around the block and came back to the house.  On the last curve in my driveway, I side-swiped a tree.  Not good.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.

 
 This next picture shows the leveler with out the base plate which I had to remove to drive the RV.  This happened this morning.
 
 And another picture of the passenger side looking from the rear to the front.
 
 Also, the cover to the magic vent was partially ripped off:

Guess I will not be going any place else soon.  Oh yes, my laptop just quit working and I had to borrow my wife's.  Hope you all have a better day than I did.

  1. Oh Dizzy, I am so sorry to hear that.

    Guess you will be calling the tree cutting guy again? On the bright side both the Jeep and RV problems happened at home or close to home.

    1. I have been in and out of my driveway many times with the RV and only the first night did I have a problem and that tree was cut down the next day. Yep, glad I wasn't in another state..

  2. There is no bright side when you swipe a tree. Tonight, after dark, you'll be out there with your flashlight, hoping it suddenly looks better than you first thought. Then there's all that ass kicking you give yourself, knowing the tree didn't jump in front of you and it's all your fault. Did I nail it?

  3. I think your run of bad luck must be about over... don't you? Hopefully those mishaps can be repaired without too much cost or time. And, of course, the good thing is there's been no injuries!

  12. Dizzy, sorry about the damage to that fine motorhome. I have always said though that if money can fix it, it is not that bad of a problem. Good luck.

  13. The Odd Essay said " Hopefully those mishaps can be repaired without too much cost or time."

    Sad to say that is wishful thinking on her part . I backed into a 3' post that did a sideswipe like that and tore the back bumper off when I pulled forward. Most people have NO idea how expensive it is to get a RV repaired. I feel your pain! I am still mad at myself but not nearly as much as those first couple of days after I did my stupid thing.

  14. Hey Dizzy I feel for ya about those HWH jacks I did a dummy thing also parking in the Flying J the other night coming back up Fla when I put the back ones down I thought I was past the curb and on the grass but one jack was half on the curb and made that nasty sound as the the plate and spring went flying.And like you I had to lay in the snow and with the crowbar and blocks had to push it back up into it's collar. As for the tree man that just makes me cry looking at it. Hey at least you steps weren't out and No don't ask me why I know that one....
