A quick stop at the RV maintenance place and many $$$ later... phew! Wow! Big numbers!
The guys did call me on my cell soon after I brought the Boler
in, saying, "We'll need to order a (Charlie Brown teacher language) for the (wha wha wha bwa), $80 each."
"Yes, sure!" I said. (Parts for the brakes
. Probably necessary, eh?)
The broken toilet was not fixed (it was original to 1978) but replaced with the coolest hippest smoothest most lovely RV toilet you could imagine. I mean, you could swoon over its yacht-like lines, so sleek! Then there's the dual-foot-pedals: one to let in water, one to flush. I can hardly wait!
Next -- ooh, la la, a working porch light! Broken since we bought the Boler two years ago, now glowing all cheerfully and helpfully.
A person should have long glamourous fingernails, like the Spokesmodels on The Price is Right to show these items off. "It's a .. NEW PORCH LIGHT! Your new porch light
features a handy switch on the exterior as well as an interior switch for ultimate convenience."
So this sunny windy afternoon, I was out there in the carport, lovingly cleaning and gel coating the exterior. Smooth! So shiny! Such a pretty pretty thing!
