Thank goodness for a good AC in the car. 118!
Our Arizona room temp. But it is a dry heat... 121!
We keep the house AC temp to around 80 during the day, a single room window AC in the bedroom at night. It takes a little while, but we are pretty well getting used to it now.
Kim & Chris came over one weekend and we all went to the swim park. Had a cold one while floating down the lazy river. It was nice.
Early one morning, the only time I could stand to be on the RV roof, I replaced the motor in our rooftop air conditioner. And by golly... it works great now. Here are some on the pictures I took during the job.
In the last month and a half, we traveled over to El Cajon to visit Kim & Chris. And they have come to Yuma to see us too. It sure is great to see Ally this often. She is growing up so fast. Here she is in our house watching her favorite video - Baby Shark.
Health insurance for pre-medicare RVers has been one of our issues since we have hit the road back in 2012. Healthcare.gov (Obamacare) has been out of the question since the last 2 years we have had to repay the healthcare subsidy because I tapped into my retirement dollars. This year, we opted for a catastrophic policy for Donna for $217.00 a month. Pretty much good for nothing unless she gets hit by a truck. But you have to have some kind of insurance. I have medicare, which is great for me. Next March, Donna gets medicare and then all will be good.
About a year ago, the Social Security Administration determined they granted my disability when they should not have, so they adjusted my eligibility date back 6 months. Yes it was a bummer that our SS paycheck decreased horribly, but the good that came out of it was our income now meets the level needed to get Donna some medical insurance help. She now pays $33.00 co-pay for a doctor visit. It is all good. Can't wait till next April when everything gets back to normal.
We decided to pack up the RV and get out of the Yuma heat for awhile. August 8th, we headed to Jamal, CA, just outside San Diego to the Pio Pico Thousand Trails RV Park for 2 weeks. The first 2 nights, we were in the North side of the park where we had only W & E.
The second night, our EMS shut down power because it dropped to 91 volts AC. So we moved over to the South side where full hookups are.
And because this park is famous for no cell or internet service, I picked up a booster from Amazon.
So far, we can make and receive cell calls and barely get an internet signal. I need to do some more tweaking, but we can be called if needed. Still waiting for a call out to a wildfire.
That's it for now.
