Getting ready to head west.
We spent most of the day getting the 5th wheel to be ready to head west. But first we will head to Clovis, about 80 miles south, to have recall work done to the 5th wheel. It seems that the awning has an electrical problem that can allow it to open on its own without warning. I pulled the fuse so that it can not open. The repair will take only about 30 minutes.
We will stay in Clovis for Monday night to visit family and then head west Tuesday morning.
I got to play with our new generator. It was great. I really did not expect it to work as well as it did. Once it was up, running, and connected to the 5th wheel, Shawna started the AC. It had no problem and the sound was not loud at all. To have more battery charge, we added a second battery to our 5th wheel. The rest of the day was getting the truck ready and organizing the storage in the "basement" of the 5th wheel.
Tired from working to get everything ready for travel, we went to the local restaurant for dinner. As we pulled into the garage tonight, I noticed a tarantula directly in front of us. We did not want to run over it with the car, so I hopped out and tried to redirect it. It was not having any of that so I had to get a broom. He was about 5 inches across and lifted his front legs in a challenge. He definitely did not see me as a problem. I just wanted to keep him from being squished by a tire and he was like "Yea, come on buddy!" He was jet black and huge.
