Time for the annual roof inspection!

All RVers know that their roof is the first line of defense against water infiltration. Maintaining your roof is vital. Some years it just needs a good cleaning, other years it may need sealer inspection and touch up. If you put it off too long you could be procrastinating yourself into a long and expensive repair. If you need me, I’ll be in my office!

Don’t neglect your water heater!

Two to three times a year I bypass my water heater, drain the tank, and rinse out any sediment that build up. We full time in our RV so the water heater stays on all the time. This can cause a lot of sediment buildup in the tank. My tank is steel so I also check the anode rod for excessive loss. The last inspection and cleaning I found the anode was close to needing replacement. I replaced the anode along with the P&T valve because it was weeping excessively. I could also pull out the electric heating element but …

What happened to David!

Wow, what a whirlwind of happenings over the past few weeks. We had always planned to leave the Austin area when things started to get warm and humid. The original plan was to pack up mid April and head to higher ground in Northern New Mexico. We ended up heading out a couple months late but we made it. Taos and Questa New Mexico are beautiful, quiet, and the weather is nice and cool. After spending several weeks there it became clear that there was a small problem. For whatever reason I was not adapting well to the 7400’ elevation. …

You never know what you will find

When ever I take the cover off someone’s roof top AC unit I repeat the same mantra over and over, “no bees, no bees, no bees”. I am not really worried about honeybees, it’s more than likely I will run into their hornet cousins or a family of mud dobbers. Don’t get me wrong, I have spray but I don’t like having to use it. On a recent call I had to investigate why a furnace in a recently purchased trailer was not working properly. It’s an older trailer and had been used in a warm dry desert area for …
