RV LIFE – Almost Ready To Move Into Again!

You’ve heard the saying “it cost me an arm and a leg” right?

Well at least we are very very close to getting our back and getting our life back…and being on the road again! In this update you’ll see that Leisure Coachworks (a division of Alfateers) in Fontana, CA have re-attached our kitchen slide completely, and are putting the finishing touches on it…sealing it up tightly, and installing a few more pieces of linoleum beneath both fridges and a cabinet area…

RV LIFE – Walls Come Off Our RV!

Well now it’s time for Leisure Coachworks (a division of Alfateers) to remove our slide out wall and rebuild it due to dry rot. (dry rot that occurred before we bought the rv) It is not something that has recently developed, as it is very old dry rot, and we just happened to be the lucky ones! 🙂 You could ask, why aren’t you doing all this work yourself, Tom? You would save a lot of money. Well, that might be true, but this job is for the professionals who actually built this rig and know this rig.

Leisure Coachworks did a wonderful job on the floor of the slide, now to finish the job…let’s see how high up the dry rot goes…


Here is another update on our situation with the damage from water over the years (and from what we’ve been told, before we purchased the rv almost 4 years ago). Seems like our floor needs to be completely demo’d and replaced….We’re in great hands though, at Leisure Coachworks (A Division of ALFATEERS) in Fontana, California.

RV LIFE – Green Beans, Shampoo & DRY ROT!

So we are now in week #2 of being at Leisure Coachworks (a division of ALFATEERS) in Fontana, California.

Our 5th wheel, TALOW, is in the shop getting all fixed up from water damage in the kitchen slide out that apparently has been there for years and was just getting worse and worse.   Leisure Coachworks have gone above and beyond for us during our stay.  Since we had to move out of our home and into a rental trailer during the rebuilding of our slide out, we needed a few items out of ours…


RV LIFE – Lee Vining Droppings!!!

Funny story…have you ever been driving along a highway, glanced into your passenger side mirror and noticed one of your basement/storage bay doors flapping in the wind???  Well we did just that, going through Lee Vining, California on Highway 395!  Check out our vlog below for the info…oh yea, all on our way to the fix it shop in Fontana, California.  Time for a TALOW check up!
