Full Time RVers....soon - December 26, 2020

 As we work towards our goal of selling the house and getting back out on the road, we are getting our truck and RV ready. We also got a mini storage here in Yuma. I figure that we will get back down to Arizona every year since our daughter lives in Phoenix and we have get togethers every year in Quartzsite. 

We are carrying quite a bit of stuff in the back of our truck,

 so I picked up a Gator roll-up Tonneau cover. 

It is working out great.

I have our two 200 watt solar panels installed on the roof,

and we finally received our inverter. UPS had lost the first one and had to send us another one. We now have an AIMS 2500 watt pure sine wave inverter.

I got behind the breaker panel and heated up all out electrical outlets through the inverter.

Finished up the install

along with the remote for the inverter and battery monitor.

Donna and I worked hard cleaning out the house, getting it ready to put up for sale. Our 10 x 10 storage unit was filling up, and we are leaving a ton of stuff in the house. We will list it as 'furnished'. 

But we had a big pile of 'yard sale' stuff. Our daughter Kim, came over from Phoenix with a bunch of her stuff, and we did a two day yard sale.

We did OK, but what was left went to the Goodwill or back into the house.

We were now ready to sell. We are living in the RV on the property, using the house washer & dryer. We got ahold of Century 21 and met with a realtor. She did all her work and set an asking price of $112,000.00. 

Not bad. It is a seller's market right now. We paid 68K just 3 years ago. She installed the lock box

and soon the 'for sale' sign was out front.

Our house is listed on Zillow. Just search for 13348 E 47th Drive, Yuma, AZ and you can see all the inside pictures too. Our realtor expects it to sell soon. 

That would be nice!

with the house just listed for 1 day, we headed to Phoenix to spend Christmas day with our daughter. 

had a great time

Merry Christmas to you all!!!

The day after Christmas, I received a couple of things from Amazon for our RV. The first was a new little motor for our electric fireplace. It started making quite a racket all of a sudden. I determined it was the motor that turned the shiny gizmo that made the fire like display. Luckily I found a replacement on Amazon for only about 33 bucks. It was a pretty straight forward replacement.

And by works now, without all the grinding noise.

The other issue we have been having with our RV, was that our RV refrigerator was too cold and freezing our food. We have a Norcold N811VF and it is an automatic type. No temp adjustment. I tried moving the thermistor to different fins, and sliding it up and down, No change. I ordered another one

and it made no difference.

So I just ordered a new updated Optical display board. The old one

was strictly automatic. Nothing but an on/off button. The new updated one

will give us the ability to adjust the temp. According to the manual, a too cold fridge is either the thermistor, or the optical display board. It should be here in a few days.

Well, we just had a realtor show our house. We stayed in the RV (and peeked out the windows just a little bit). Our realtor sent us a message and said the prospective buyers are keeping our house on their short list.

we shall see....

The Fergs out .......
