Dripping

Now we are dealing with two water related problems that are not related to each other.

First, we discovered a tear on Bella's roof when we saw rain water getting in. This is over the couch, right behind the passenger's seat. We've been advised to use EternaBond to fix it. Thankfully it is a very small tear, cause that stuff is expensive.

Then we have the leak under the bed, where the fresh water tank is, right behind the driver's seat. We put on our detective hats again today and try as we might, we can not figure out where the leak is or how the water got there. We have a fan on full blast directed at the wet spots and all we can do is wait for it to dry. Lucky for us, there is no rain in the forecast and the temps will be in the 80s for the next few days.

The one thing we do know is that the two water problems are not related, they are on opposite sides of the coach, but they just happened at about the same time and funny that we just happen to be in "Dripping" Springs TX right now ...

Bella looks like a disaster zone. There is stuff everywhere and the bed is gone, Bernie had to take it apart so we could work on this problem. We have to get rid of the twin mattress because it got wet too and it is now moldy.

It's a good thing we are not traveling right now and that we are in a driveway with hookups. It's a really good thing that Bernie is a carpenter and can build a brand new bed for Mar.

Our hosts are leaving tomorrow and we will stay here to take care of their cat and two dogs. While we're here Bernie will be working on some projects around the house for them. This week Mar will do the laundry, a couple of baking and cooking marathons, and will work on her online classes.

Because we are not traveling right now, we will probably not post the blog every day, but we promise to keep you updated if anything interesting happens. Stay tuned.

Hi Mar & Bernie,
Sorry to hear about the leaks. Hope you figure out where that second one is. Could it have traveled that far from the tear?
Good luck
Jo
