Been busy, busy, busy

I have been pretty busy with appointments,  cleaning the RV, doing some upgrades in it too, and finally getting around to applying for our passport.
First off, Doug had a flare up on his eye.  I don't know if I ever mentioned it but Doug had a cornea transplant a few years back and every once in a while he has a flair up of infection.  So far he has not had a problem with rejection but that is always a possibility.
Here is his eye on the screen.  It doesn't show up very well but you can see the redness.
When they pushed some button and the screen turned all blue you could see the infection.  It is that T shaped green spot on the lower left side.  They put him on some high potent steriods and we went back the next week and it was all gone.
Next we have been working on some changes in the motorhome.  I have always hated the lamps in the bedroom.  I found some that I liked at camping world and Doug installed them for me.

This was the hated ones!  
Here are the replacements.  I love them!  Notice that the new ones are brushed nickel.   That of course made me have to do something about all the other hardware in the bedroom.

 Oops its brass!
 I got a can of spray paint and starting painting.  
Now it all looks great!  I love my new lights!
We also hung our new sound bar under the TV.  I didn't get a picture before Doug took it down.  I will get one later and post it.  Now all we need to do is give the old girl a bath and she will be ready for our next trip.  We will leave Tuesday for a short trip with some friends that are building a new house.  They need to go look at appliances.  Any excuse for a trip is good for me.

Happy Mothers Day!

I want to wish a Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there.  It's a beautiful day here.  It's in the low 70's with not a cloud in the sky.  Best of all, low humidity!  Humidity is a bummer down here in the south.  We will have to be elsewhere this summer when the high temps and high humidity hits.  Not looking forward to that.  The older I get the harder heat is on me.  Another one of those nasty aging things.
When we got home from our last trip, we had a list of things to do in the motorhome.
1. Change out the water filter under the sink.

 This is the old one.  It is suppose to be all black at the top.  
 The new one installed

We wound up changing the whole system out.  The one that was there was original to the MH and was leaking.  I think it was just the filter getting loose but it looked so bad we replaced it.  It wasn't a hard job, it was just inconvenient.  Of course it was in a hard to reach area, with little room to work.  I think the designers of these motorhomes look for ways to make it hard for the layman to do repairs.

2.  The bracket on the closet sliding door had come off.  It looks as if it is just wedged onto the frame.  There are no screws holding it at all.  Hummm   I wedged it back into place but we are putting some glue on it to help hold it in place. (Sorry the picture is so bad.  I used an old mirror I found in the drawer to take the picture since the bracket is on the back side.  Didn't notice how dirty the mirror was till I looked at the picture.  LOL)

3.  Adjust the outside mirrors.
  It came to our attention (while trying to get through the toll booth) that one mirror sticks out a lot more than the other.  We moved that one in a little so that it doesn't stick out so far, but he can still see well. Notice how far this mirror sticks out?
See how close this mirror is?  We didn't move the other one in that much but enough that we should fit in toll booths better.  LOL
We have a couple more things to get done but this is all for now.  If tomorrow is as nice as today maybe we can get old Betsy washed!
Happy Mothers Day!!!
