Tampa Florida

We are currently residing in one of our favorite rv uncle's marina here in Tampa Florida......SWEET!  I have not had my camera out yet, but I will and wait till you see the gorgeous sunsets we have here almost every night.  
On a more serious note.....our toilet, for the 4th time I think, stopped working.  This time the foot petal game way.  Hard to tell where the break is without taking everything apart.  Billy swore the next time the toilet had "issues" it was headed to the trash heap.  So, yesterday at 4pm we were out buying a new toilet.  That is where things get a little dicey.  At this point, I'm not calling out brand names.....but I think the replacement toilet is not nearly as nice or well built as the one we are throwing out.  I don't like the way it looks and I'm not sold on the way it operates.  Billy overruled my objections, which made for an unhappy household last evening.  Billy will install the new toilet today....we have been using the marina's facilities in the interim.  I'll have a full report next blog with photos.  I have resigned myself to the fact that even "this toilet" is better than no toilet!


  1. I will be anxious to hear more about where you're staying...and seeing pictures.

    We got a brand new $800 toilet in our motorhome from the dealer when we bought it, and although it looks real nice, and works great when we have good water pressure, it is terrible when we have bad pressure. I can sympathize.

  2. Hope everything comes out all right. :)

  3. No one has said it so I will! WHAT A CRAPPY SITUATION!. Now wishing you a successful resolution.

  4. Toliets are a important decision ~ we had a hand flush one and I hated it so we replced it with an expensive foot petal one. It has (knock on wood) worked great for 6 years! I like the foot petal! Hope all works out for you guys...
    Have fun in Tampa...
    Travel safe

  5. Hey y'all, I'm in Tampa too! Hasn't the weather been A M A Z I N G! Are you in a Tampa Bay marina?
    I agree with Judy, hope everything comes out ok...
