Another Quiet Day . . .

Jan woke up still under the weather this morning so we just made it a stay-at-home day.

I spent part of the morning making some phone calls, trying to solve some rig problems I’m having.

My first called was to Brake Buddy.

Brake Buddy Classic

For the last 5 years I’ve used a Brake Buddy Classic as the braking system when we tow our truck behind our RV with absolutely no problems. But recently the 12 volt cigarette lighter on it has gotten kind of ‘iffy’ and needed to be replaced. But the typical replacement plugs I found locally are not heavy duty enough.

All I could find were ones rated for 5 amps, but the Brake Buddy needs one rated for 20 amps. So my next try was to call Brake Buddy and get one from them.

And what I got excellent service. When I told them what I needed, the guy took my name and address, and said a new plug would go out to me this afternoon. No charge, no nothing, just great service.

Kudos to Brake Buddy.

Taking care of that, my next call was to Westland Sales about a problem with our Splendide washer/dryer. Once last month at the end of the wash cycle the door wouldn’t unlock. So after fooling with it for a while, I ran it thru another wash cycle and at the finish the door unlocked with no problems.

But then a couple of days ago it happened again, and this time running it through the cycle again didn’t help. But I left it alone for a few hours and it unlocked on its own.

So I called Westland to get some ideas what the problem might be, and after talking for a few minutes, Ryan, the tech, gave me some things to check further, and then get back to him.

After that my last chore was to order some new checks from Checks In The Mail. Unfortunately they have to be shipped to our home address in Houston, so I’ll have to have our daughter ship them back out to us to where ever we are.

For the rest of the afternoon I worked on client website stuff, getting some new domain names, and typing in some text filler for the web pages.

Since Jan didn’t feel like going out for dinner, in fact didn’t feel like eating at all, Nick and Terry invited me over to their rig for a great meal of homemade Sausage and Cheese Rigatoni. Really, really good.

By the time I got back to our rig, Jan was feeling better and I fixed a little something to eat. Hopefully she’s on the mend.

We’ll see tomorrow.

  1. Sorry to hear Jan is under the weather. Get well, soon, Jan! Guess we need to work on getting our Brake Buddy back online. I hate setting that up and it just isn’t working right for us. It’s probably operator error!

  2. Dear Jan: Hope your feeling better being under the weather while on the road is terrible………thinking of you often take care Joan

  3. Jeannie,

    Ours has worked fine for 5 years.

    It only takes 3 or 4 minutes to set up and be ready to roll.

    Keep in touch.


  4. Joanie,

    So good to hear from you. I am on the mend and enjoying the beautiful Indiana countryside on our outings.

    We’ll be here until the 24th and then it’s on to Hershey PA.

    Is your neat porch decorated for Fall yet, and are you enjoying being a “Nana”?

    I certainly am with Landon.

    Thinking of you.
