We left Brownsville, drove to Rock port, TX for a 3-day stop, then drove on towards Red Bay, AL. The Tiffin RV Service Center is there and we needed a few things fixed on our RV. As usual, we would have needed to wait several days for Tiffin to do the work, however, across the street, the McKinney RV Center could take us right away, which was better anyway because they're more reasonable and they know us from previous visits, too.

Luckily, for Terry's budget, some of the repairs actually cost less than he expected....not to say that the bill was cheap, just not quite so expensive. The leveling jacks turned out to be a much easier fix than expected but they couldn't fix the pilot light on the oven, so I can only use it for storage.

They also fixed the awning and a couple other things rather quickly, however, the rear view camera that needed fixing, they couldn't find a replacement for, so they had to install a whole new system. But, once we got on the road, we realized that the camera picks up reflections during the day and isn't very good after dark, so Terry's researching other cameras and might be able to get some refund to switch cameras...we'll see.

All of that was done in less than two days, so we drove on down to our East Coast 'home' at PJ's in the Florida panhandle. There was lots of catching up to do...who has done what and when, etc. Also, PJ loves to play Bingo, so we went about 3-4 times over the two weeks that we were there.

PJ had to fly up to her son Billy's in Indiana for a few days and then drove her truck back down (that had been 'on loan' up there). It was pretty quiet without her.

Finally, it was time to get back on the road and headed north.
