Things are getting a little difficult, now that the weather is nearing the freeze zone. DH has to make sure the water hoses are drained at night....just in case....and the long run of pvc pipe he put together to reach our sewer drop also has to be flushed and drained. My early morning trek outside with the furballs, now requires two sweatshirts and socks and shoes. My beloved flip flops are no longer viable.
As you know we have had some issues with our black tank and just when we think we are back to normal......our macerater quit. DH took it apart and found one of the blades to be bent. Apparently, a small rock had somehow entered into the thing and that was that! Poor DH had to get out the dreaded ‘Blue Boy’ last night to empty our black tank. He did order a replacement and we hope it comes sooner rather than later.
Our second issue seems to be a faulty thermostat. We have had a couple of very chilly mornings inside the fiver because the thermostat didn’t cycle the furnace. I would have to put the thermostat down to about 50 and then push it back up to 68 to get the furnace to come on. It has not happened very often, but it always seems to happen at night when we are sleeping and unaware.......until the cold finally wakes me. I guess we will be replacing that soon.....looking into a digital with a remote. I want to be able to turn the furnace on from my bed. I know they make programable ones, but I don’t always get up at the same time everyday. Of course, DH says we don’t need a remote.....why.....because DW is almost always up first.....so guess who is ‘his’ remote.......He always has been able to “push my buttons” LOL!
